When One Leaves the Nest

I met this mom at a monthly women’s group I attend and she is so nice! She brought her family to our second mini session date and although they did a great job posing, I know all the guys were happy it was only 20 minutes long. This mom was telling me that her oldest son is about to leave for the military and she wanted a nice family portrait before he is gone. Although I am by far not ready for this stage in life, my oldest is 16 so I know it is right around the corner. This is one beautiful family!

Oh My…

These three are the best kids….sweet, funny, smart and each of them have totally different personalities, yet they are all so much fun! The girls look so grown up this year that I was in shock…as well as their parents:)

Added One More

This family added one more additional since the last time I photographed them and now they ahve two cutie pie’s! I loved their outwear for the pictures and the fact that they look like they just stepped out of the pages of a Land’s End or J Crew catalog. That is one good looking family!

What A Difference 6 Years Makes

I had to look to see when I last photographed this family because when I saw the boys they looked SO grown up! These boys are similar in age to my three and I should know how much kids change over time because of my own growing up so fast but I have decided it is more of a shock when you don’t see the kids all the time. Anyway, I last photographed them in 2008 and the youngest one was so very tiny!  The boys have gotten so handsome and mature and mom and dad haven’t aged a bit;)

Thanks y’all for a wodnerful session at Pebble Hill!

Christmas Portraits 2014

The craziness of the Christmas portrait season is here and I have decided it wouldn’t be right without the tradition of seeing this family every year. They have some exciting changes coming up which you will see on the blog a little bit later:)

Back for a Mini

I hadn’t seen these kids since their little sister’s newborn portraits and I was excited to see them because they are the sweetest little ones and they are so great about posing for me. Their little sister now has the biggest, bluest eyes I think I have ever seen! Thanks y’all for an amazing session:)

She’s 7 Months!

I have been admiring this pretty baby girl’s pictures on Facebook for the past few months whenever her mom posts something new. She is SO sweet and what a precious doll she has become! She was only semi-smiley for her session but even her serious pictures are gorgeous with those big eyes and chubby cheeks! It won’t be too long before it is time for her one year portraits:)
