Glowing: Belton Maternity Photographer

When I met this couple, they had a little secret that they couldn’t wait to share.  I kept their little secret until last month when Mama-To-Be came back to see me for maternity photos in the bluebonnets.  She is so beautiful and has that perfect glow about her.  I’m so excited for her and her husband to be holding their daughter this summer.  Their shih tzus are going to make the sweetest furry sister and brother.

We met at Overlook Park in Belton, a popular spot to find photo-friendly bluebonnets and walked to a perfect little patch of bluebonnets where the sunset perfectly through the trees.  I absolutely adore this spot.  After the bluebonnets started to wilt, they were replaced with yellow and purple flowers.  If you’re looking for a place to take a casual walk, maybe have a picnic, and watch a sunset, you’ll definitely want to check this place out.

Thanks for coming back and seeing me, A!  I can’t wait to meet your little girl.

A Colorful Tea Party: Belton Texas Photographer

We’re all mad here.
-The Cheshire Cat

This awesome mom contacted me about a fun tea party photo shoot for her and her daughter.  We talked about different styles of tea parties- posh, vintage or Mad Hatter.  She chose Mad Hatter and I was so pumped.  I love Alice In Wonderland and have habit of singing the White Rabbit’s “I’m Late” song to my kids whenever we’re running behind.  So I started planning and pulling out old props to create a colorful tea party.  I found the orange tea set at an antique show.  I was given the mushroom by a fellow photographer.  Then I picked up a few other things at thrift shops and the grocery store.  I was set and so excited to start the session.

We talked about what to wear through text and email but I was still in awe of their outfits when I saw them at the photo session.  Mom is brilliantly dressed with the cool hat, polka dot scarf, and teal blazer.  She’s feminine, sophisticated yet awesomely whimsical.  Then the daughter in a rainbow tutu, striped leggings, and high tops.  Their outfits made the session.

The whole session was so much fun.  Little Miss A is a fun and smart little girl.  She loved the cookies and cupcakes and spent most of the session with one in each hand.  We had pretend tea, picked wildflowers, and played with her friend Geoffrey the Giraffe (see last photo).

I loved this session so much and it was only made better by the fact that I got to bring home leftover cupcakes and cookies to nibble on while I edited.

Caterpillar Corner: Pittsboro Photographer

At the Fort Hood Army Wives’ Spring Expo, I met Angela of Caterpillar Corner.  I love her adorable clothing for little girls and asked if she’d be interested in a photo shoot.  She said yes and I found a handful of the cutest little girls in Central Texas to model her dresses.  All the dresses were so beautiful and well-made.  My personal favorite is the roses and cream-colored dress modeled by the curly-haired cutie but I’m also loving the little red and blue romper.  Too bad I have boys, right?   Thankfully, I get to hang out with adorable little girls and have five neices back home that I photograph every chance I get.

Have a special occassion coming up?  Need an adorable outfit for a photo session?  You’ll definitely want one of these dresses for your little princess.  Or even for yourself!  I’ll be ordering a skirt soon!
