The Rigsby Family!

Look who's baaccckk - yes, the Rigsbys recently did a family session! Yay!

This is one of my most favorite families - for one because the kids are ADORABLE and two you NEVER ever know what kind of pictures you are gonna get! haha
Normally, the girls are the ones who want nothing to do with - but this time - this time was glorious! ha The girls were perfect little models and I got some of my most favorite photos ever out of them. We had so much fun! I really love the above photo - it really captures them - they really are best friends ;)
Kobe is normally fairly easy to photograph (I mean obviously, that child is gorgeous) but normally once he warms up to me we are fine - yep, not this time. The majority of the time was spent of me chasing him trying to get a good picture - or me running from him cause he was throwing rocks at me! hahaha He is 10000% little boy! I was able to snag a few of him - this was my favorite ;)

I love this family photo - Krystal & James are really great parents and I loved capturing this special moment.
Kalei - wow this photo literally took my breath away - really shows how much she has grown up - absolute perfection.
Jaycee - SWOON over this picture - she is so adorable - I could literally take pictures of her all day - I love the fact that Jaycee smiles with her eyes - not everyone can do that, but it comes natural for her.
love this one - doesn't it just scream summer romance?!?!?
Every time I look at this photo I cant help but laugh - its perfect in so many ways ;)
James, Krystal, Kalei, Jaycee & Kobe - thank you again for continually allowing me to capture your precious family - I always look forward to our next session! love you guys!

Nancy & Cooper!

A few months ago, I met Nancy and her son Cooper for a photo session. I had never met them before, but instantly loved them! I mean seriously, is this not the sweetest family picture ever? Plus you know I was thrilled when they brought their dog along for some pictures (I am a firm believer that animals are totally apart of your family.)
 We met at Addison Circle - where they live by the way - yeah I know they are SUPER cool for that! I'm going to be honest, I had never been to Addison Circle (yes I'm apart of looserville) but I am dying to shoot there again - so many gorgeous areas.
We walked all over the place - at first Cooper was a little stand offish from me, but I quickly won him over - especially when I promised him he could dress up like Spiderman and have a popcorn war later! ha Actually, the Spiderman idea was his moms, but let me tell you I kept bribing him with it! haha

I adore this picture - Nancy asked me if it would be ok if maybe at the end of the shoot we could let Cooper wear one of his many super hero outfits for a few pictures - she said right now he is all about super hero's and dressing up and she wanted a few pictures of this fun/special/adorable time of his life. I thought it was an absolutely BRILLIANT idea.
Showing me some of his Spidey moves!

This moment melted my heart. Can you see the love Copper has for his mom? The entire day he was all about his mom - it was so sweet to see the love between them and I think this photo really captures that. Its these types of captures that just makes me scream I LOVE MY JOB! ;)

Another one of my absolute favorites ever. I wish you could of heard the laughter at this moment - perfection.

Nancy & Cooper - thank you so much for allowing me to spend the morning with you, you guys totally rock!

The Stout Family!

I was so excited to meet this family - one, because they are related to one of my most favorite families EVER! And two, just by trying to plan the shoot I knew they would be super fun. Let me tell ya, they did not disappoint ;)

Oh did I mention they were driving all the way back home to Pampa after this shoot? Yeah - yuk to long car rides.

Ok are these boys not the most adorable brothers you have ever seen? I totally fell in love with them - they all have such different personalities - it made the shoot so fun!
Cadyn is the oldest of the three and is so sweet. He was the perfect gentleman the entire day and was incredibly good in front of the camera. 
Next up is Creed - he is the wild child of the group. So full of energy and such a "class clown" - if I didn't have him in front of the camera, we were constantly having to make sure we hadn't lost him! He definitely gave me some great laughs ;)
The youngest of the group is Coleson. Oh my goodness - he is precious. Although, he really had no idea what to think of me, he melted my heart. He was so quiet and a little timid in front of the camera - but oh so curious.
One of my most favorite family photos ever. I love the happiness and laughter this family has!
yep. total stud muffins.
I can not even begin to tell you how much I love this picture. I pulled these out of my bag and Coleson couldn't wait to try them on. But even with silly glasses and a clown nose on he kept it strictly business - no smiles - but that's one reason why I love the photo even more ;)
This picture makes me smile every time I look at it. It also makes me laugh - staying true to their personalities you have Mr GQ, Mr Serious and Mr Class Clown (complete with him being the only one wearing the clown nose!). I think all siblings should have a picture like this - I know I wish I had one with my brother and sister at this age!

Stout Family - thank you for making my job easy. Y'all are absolutely incredible and have such an amazing family. I hope to see lots more of you in the near future!
