Recently, I was honored to take part in the First Annual Stories of Autism Awareness Weekend.  Well, technically we were to take part of the weekend but thunderstorms that morning caused us to reschedule two weeks later.  It was a gorgeous Saturday when I finally got to meet S and C and their mom.  We took a short walk around Triad Park, took some pictures, and chatted it up before everyone’s stomachs were growling.  Since it was morning, we were able to wrap it up before breakfast time was over.  S got to have pancakes and I grabbed some Bojangles on the way home.  There’s no way to start a day better than a good session and a yummy breakfast!

Thank you for participating in the Stories of Autism project!  I hope you enjoy your pictures!

Ok, I better let you know that this post is going to be picture heavy!  With a session this fun and a girl this cute, how could I possible not go absolutely overboard on the images?

I met 2.5 year old Miss K and her mommy in their home over the weekend.  She is so adorable and smart.   It was so much fun playing with her and watching her play with her dolls and books and purse and grocery cart.   So much girly perfection that I adored.

Originally, I posted this one in black and white on Facebook but I love the color just as much.  I saw this one in my head and she very nicely cooperated just the way I envisioned.I rented a macro lens for www.borrowlenses.com and couldn’t resist an eyelash shot.She played with her dollhouse.We talked about finger prints and she gave me a cute little grin. She insisted Baby have her picture made too.  Of course, I can’t resist a sweet request.She helped another doll play seek & find.We all took turns tracing each others hands.  We took some fun pictures with Mommy.

And this one is for me.  We were talking about how a lens cap is like a helmet for my lens.  So she was helping me put it back on.  🙂

Thank you, K and J for having me over!  I had a lot of fun and hope you enjoy your images.

 

Sneak Peek for D Family: Harker Heights Family Photographer

Sneak Peek for D Family: Harker Heights Family Photographer

This has been a whirlwind!  Just over two weeks ago, M posted on our local mom forum searching for a photographer to photograph Baby M’s birth.  Photographing a birth has been on my bucket list for the longest time so I responded and was over-the-moon excited and honor for her to choose me.  We set up a last  minute maternity session (by the way, aren’t you jealous at how fabulous she looks to be just days away from giving birth?).  A few days later, I met her at Women’s hospital to await the arrival of Baby M.  Christmas and snow delayed the newborn session but I saw them again when Baby M was 9 days old.  So it’s only been a couple weeks since I first spoke to M.

I do have to say I loved this family.  The kids are great and M is so easy to talk to.    We’re like minded and our kids are pretty similar so it was another great session that felt like home to me.

One of Baby M at only an hour old.

The coolest co-sleeping bed I have ever seen.

Baby M gave me the most eye contact I’ve ever gotten from a newborn.  I have two pictures of her staring at the camera while in the hospital.

Baby toes…. is there anything sweeter?

Big sister is completely in love with her little sister.

Thanks D family for allowing me to photograph your family!  Enjoy your pictures!
