Whimsey Hollow {Fall Mini Session}

I have been just dying to show you these pictures! Whimsey Hollow was a HUGE success and I'm already thinking of ideas for next year. It went so smoothly and the weather was absolutely perfect. Thanks so all my amazing clients that came out - not only do they rock, but I swear I had the cutest kids ever lined up for this shoot :) Enjoy!

See what I mean? I seriously have some of the best looking clients! :) Thank you again to all who came out - I loved seeing y'all! Also, a very special thanks to my Aunt Danielle & Uncle David who allowed me to shoot on their gorgeous land and spend the day in their back yard. And last, but certainly not least THANK YOU to my amazing assistant - you made everything 1000% times more perfect. Thank you for all your hard work!

Be watching for mini sessions in 2011!

Jarred & Brazos

Several weeks ago I headed out to Covington, TX to the Moody household. I had never met them, but Karla had warned me that they lived out in the country. I honestly didn't think much about it - I mean I live in Waxahachie - that's pretty country! Well, she wasn't joking - I had to laugh when I turned down a long dirt road to get to their house! ha They have tons of beautiful land with lots of horses, cows, etc... They were all so nice and fun - I had such a great time!

Meet adorable little Brazos - he was such a good sport - he rarely cried and was so laid back. His dad is a country music singer (check him out here) so it was so fitting to take some pictures of Brazos in his daddys guitar case! LOVE IT!

This is his older brother, Jarred, who was such a sweetheart! He was such a trooper and seriously, how cute is he?!? ;) He was also very reassuring when I frantically asked (as I'm standing in very tall grass) "do y'all have lots of snakes???" to which he replied "No mam, we spray" ha!

I love this one - within minutes there were cows surrounding us - isn't the sky just gorgeous?!

So Karla had told me that she wanted to get some of Brazos with his horse - for a split second I seriously thought she meant a fake horse - maybe a stuffed animal or a rocking horse - ummm NOPE! Brazos LOVES this horse - it was actually so sweet to see them interacting with each other - and I promise he was not left alone on this horse - his dad was right there (oh the joys of photoshop!).

We then walked over to the hay field - and omg take my breath away - the lighting and the sky was spectacular. The sun was beginning to set and I could of stayed out there all evening.

I was so excited when Brazos fell asleep - it was prefect timing! We got this...

I am in love with this shot - every time I look at it just makes me glad to live in Texas - look how perfect the evening sky is!

Wayne, Karla, Jarred and Brazos - thanks so much for showing me what "real country" is and for such a great time! Hope to see y'all again soon ;)

State Fair Mini Session {Part 2}

As promised, here are the rest of the State Fair Mini's :)

The Bray Family (minus one)

Sadly, their oldest son couldn't join us for the shoot (darn college) but we were still able to get some great ones! Y'all will just have to come back and do a family session (hint hint) ha! This family is so fun - seriously fun - they are one of my "down with anything families"

I LOVE this picture - I think it just shows how fun they are - my assistant and I had the BEST time shooting them on the bumper cars - their laughter was infectious!

Meet Trinity - wowzers! Can we all say "Heartbreaker"? Umm yeah she is breath taking!

i really am obsessed with this photo.
This is Dylan - yes he is adorable, and yes I'm sure he has lots of girlfriends. Oh and the man is background is REAL!
I am really proud of this one - everything about it i LOVE - including the fact that it says "Love Bugs" in the background. Yes, I know, I'm a genius :) J/K!

The Alstons!
I laughed non stop with this family - they are so GREAT and so sweet! Although, as you can see in the photo above, the two younger kids were not sure what to think of me! hahaha They were my last session of the day and by that time the Midway was packed! But they were all such troopers :)

Love it - even making funny faces this family is just plain gorgeous!

I wish I had a video of the few minutes of taking this picture - the whole cotton candy incident was a scream to watch - hands down the funniest moment of the day!
perfect. absolute perfection.

To all of my State Fair customers: Thank you for trying out this new idea I had - I had a great time and could not of asked for better clients!
