Madysen and Sydney Turn 1!

What’s more adorable than a cake smash session? Well, how about a cake smash times two! I’m so glad I got to work with Miss Sydney and Madysen again to celebrate their first birthday. The bright colors of their tutus were a great contrast to the glowing light and green grass. It was fun to see them interact with each other, taste the cakes and get REALLY messy. We captured some cheeseball moments, sweet smiles and their developing personalities. One thing I always forget to tell parents is to bring a backup outfit for them just in case. Sometimes the parents can get more messy in the aftermath than the kids themselves!

Baylor is 1!

It has been a little more than a year since I was able to capture big sister Sloane’s cake smash out by her grandparent’s river house in New Braunfels. Now, it was baby sister, Baylor’s turn. (How can she already be one?!? I feel like I just took her newborn photos!!)

Lane is 1!

When it comes to an ideal backdrop, it’s hard to beat a beautiful Texas sunset. In this session, we were able to capture some great images of Mr. Lane to commemorate his first birthday. He is too cute for words. Take a look!

Bella Cake Smash

Miss Bella is one! This sweet little nugget is my niece and we were able to take her cake smash photos during her birthday party this weekend. Although we didn’t get many smiles, she really did love the cake. And in an attempt to get a few more laughs, we put on some music and she showed…

2016 Year at a Glance

Wow! As a busy mom and wife it’s hard to imagine how it was possible to have had so many great sessions this past year. As many of you know, photography isn’t my full time gig, but it is my love, passion and all consuming hobby. In 2016, I was very fortunate to have a broad spectrum of clients and occasions. From newborns, maternity, extended families, high school seniors, engagements/weddings, prom and more, I met so many awesome people and started getting more repeat clients coming back to me for the second and third year in a row. I feel really blessed to be able to have this outlet for my creativity and that so many have trusted me to capture these special moments.

Rilie’s Cake Smash

This sweet little girl is my niece! I can’t believe that we were doing her newborn photos around this time last year. Time goes by way too fast. She’s gotten so big and has even been walking for some time already.

Delaney

Miss Delaney Rose is one! This sweet girl is my niece and I was able to travel to Ft. Worth this weekend for her birthday. We had the hardest time getting her to smile with her big serious eyes– but in the end, we were able to capture some precious expressions. And, boy can this girl eat some cake! She must be a Barton for sure 😉

Luke & Family

The best part of fall sessions in Texas is that we can still have beautiful creamy light without the 95+ degree weather. This was my first session of this season where we weren’t all a sweaty mess by the end. Mr. Luke didn’t feel like eating very much of his cake but he did get a few good mouthfuls in. And, we were even able to sneak in some sweet family shots!

Kaden

I’m so glad we did an outdoor sunset session for Kaden’s one year photos. This little cowboy was in a serious mood, but we still got some cute shots in between stepping through stickers and fire ants!

Sloane Turns One

I’m so glad I got to see Miss Sloane again for her first birthday! I met her and her parents out in New Braunfels one morning for a cake smash by the lake. How cute is she! Sloane did great even though it was a bit chilly that morning. She HATED the cake, but we still got some sweet shots anyway.

Maisyn Turns One

I’ve been taking photos of Miss Maisyn since she was a newborn and her most recent photos were my favorite.
