Client Spotlight -- Bisett Family Portrait Session

I love fall portrait sessions. Color everywhere, cooler temperatures, and so many fun families! This past weekend I traveled to Wimberley, TX  to take photos of the Bisett Family. I met Josie and Dan this past summer over Memorial Day weekend. We had so much fun hanging out with them and their two sweet boys Sawyer and Lennox (baby girl Dagny was still in the oven ;) ). Dan is a super dad, who is helping pass on his multilingual skills to his kids. Its remarkable to watch them interact, fluidly mixing Spanish, ASL, and English throughout the conversation. The Bisetts are just such an amazing family; I'm so glad Josie and I have kept up with each other's through social media and the blog world.

Sidenote: Josie has some of the funniest blog(s) around. Her GoMomma! Blog is a hilarious tell all about the adventures she encounters as a mom of 3, and her sister blog Across The Pond provides a funny and interesting look at the difference in life in the states versus life in the UK. Seriously, they're worth checking out, and most definitely guaranteed to make you laugh! 

Josie suggested meeting at Wimberley square which buts up against a beautiful nature trail and creek. We spent all of our time there, letting the boys play while I took some candid shots, and pausing every now and then for some fun group photos. Check out these sneak peek photos, which are some of my favorites so far.
Thanks so much to Dan and Josie for inviting me out to Wimberley, I'll have your CD in the mail this week!

Themed Thursday -- Baby Shower!!

Baby showers are so much fun. Joyful, loving family and friends join together to treat a glowing mama to be and her soon to arrive bundle. Everyone oohs and awhs over carefully chosen gifts, and when men come as guests, you get a few "grunts" of approval too! We took a quick trip up to Austin last weekend to wish Adam's sweet cousin well wishes at her baby shower, and I snapped a few pics while we were there. They were too cute not to share. Can't wait to meet Miss Luna, arriving January 2013!









Love this photo of gorgeous Mama Kayleigh and Dad Stuart is there trying to hide in the background!

Client Spotlight-- Meyer Family Portraits

Get ready y'all... you're about to see one of Boerne's cutest families! Jenny contacted me over the summer when I offered my Boerne Bucks deal because she knew she wanted some Fall family portraits. We finally had the pleasure of meeting each other at Cibolo Nature Preserve a couple of weekends ago. Cibolo is one of my favorite places to photograph my clients, and this time of year is perfect because the trees are changing, and there is so much color everywhere. Brian, Jenny's husband is a local firefighter, and their adorable girls are both in cheerleading. Everyone had such great smiles, and it was just a really fun shoot! Thank you so much to Jenny and Brian for letting me photograph your beautiful family, please enjoy the sneak peek below:

Monday Inspiration

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

Client Spotlight-- Sydney's Pumpkin Patch Session

I finally got the pleasure of meeting this sweet baby girl who is the daughter of my husband's cousin. We took  advantage of the last bit of beautiful October weather and headed down to the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch. Pumpkin patches are serious business y'all. Everyone toting around their kids in wagons, bounce houses, ponies, food, drinks, 1000 cutouts, mazes and, oh yeah.... pumpkins of every size. There was so much going on that we were all a little overwhelmed at first. Poor Miss Sydney had been sick the previous week, and so it took her a little bit to warm up to the idea of having her picture taken. I'm so happy we were able to get some smiles out of her, because she is such an adorable girl!

Enjoy the sneak peek of her session below:

Themed Thursday--The Great State Fair of Texas

I mentioned in Tuesday's post that we were lucky enough to attend the State Fair of Texas earlier in October. I have always loved The Fair. Fried Food, Bright Colors, The Midway, The Ferris Wheel. It was such a beautiful day, I only wish we could have made it before Big Tex 'died'. Oh well, I know he'll be back bigger than ever next year, after all, this is Texas! Most importantly we got to spend some extra time with great friends. We had an amazing time. Check out some of the photos from our day:
