Daley & Deacon | 6.18.12

The day before I left for my 6 week trip to WA I was fortunate enough to have a client want me to take photos of her children. So amidst packing I loaded up and headed over to her house. I welcomed the break from packing!! Trying to fit everything needed for 6 weeks in one large suitcase and one carry on is not fun! BTW it didn’t all fit when I was ready to head back home but that’s an entirely different story! haha (There’s two pair of shoes who got left behind that are having to travel back solo)

This little girl is a spitfire!! She kept me on my toes and laughing the entire shoot. Except for shots like this where she left me catching my breath.

This little man was the serious of the two haha. He’s already trying out GQ faces!!

I love each of these equally, couldn’t pick one over the other!

She had a BLAST with these shots!! We had to do it twice haha!!

I would LOVE to take credit for this but I cannot….this was all momma’s idea!! I love it!

Hope everyone is having a pleasant Summer. It’s soooo hot here in Texas, looking forward to the cooler temps!!

Newborn Session {Harper}

Meet Harper! She weighed in at 9lbs 13oz and was 21.5″ long with a head full of thick dark hair. 10 days new.

The sun set and it was amazing light! Headband made by yours truly. Basket found at Ross or TJ Maxx (can’t remember) Purple wrap, well that was just fabric I bought at Joann’s. Look at all that hair!!!

The cute little bed was found at a garage sale for $2, headband made by yours truly, and the fabric is from Joann’s. The diaper cover is my favorite! I crocheted the cover and then sewed on ruffles I hand made. It was too little for her so I just tucked it around her. The headband is a Yo-Yo with a vintage button glued to the center.

We of course had to get the older siblings in some pics, too!!

And last but not least…

Please note that this is a composite shot. Do not EVER attempt this shot without an assistant (mom was my helper) to support baby’s head at all times. Newborn safety is crucial!! No shot is worth harming a baby.

I ♥ Faces {Oh So Silly!}

The theme for this week’s challenge is “Oh so silly”. We were asked to show a photo that we feel best represents this topic.

So what is sillier than a brother pestering his kid sister?! I couldn’t think of anything. So below is my entry for the contest:

Sweet little sister didn’t know he was back there!!! I had two other photos after this showing her finding out and trying her best to smile for me yet take care of big brother, so funny!!

Siblings {T&L}

Do you remember the sweet twins I photographed last month? (Click here if you need a little help remembering) Well here are their older brother and sister. This was actually my first experience with these two and boy did we have fun. Little Miss Lexi is quite the model. And Tatum?? You’d be so surprised about how well the boys do in front of the camera. I know I’ve been! They’re usually the ones saying, “Hey lets do this!” or “Take my picture here!” haha! Totally  not what I would expect, but hey I love it!!

Ok so I know that these won’t be blown up for the hallway but I just love the way he’s teasing his sweet sister while she’s trying to give me her all for the camera!! These can be used when they’re older and she can say “See what you used to do to me!!!” ha ha

Isn’t she divine?! Oh and that head piece is awesome, too, right?! Okay I’m patting myself on the back because I made it 🙂 It does take you straight to her eyes though, and they are stunning.

He had a lot of energy and I was sooo happy to get some really good shots of him. Why can’t I have energy like that anymore? Oh yea, I’m old and I have to drink a pot of coffee just to wake up!

No way! We’re not hugging! Uh uh, nope!
I heard all those remarks and thought to myself, how can I do this. So I did what always works to get kids to do what you want….I tricked them into a challenge!! hehe I said, “Your mom told me you wouldn’t hug. She thinks you won’t do it. Let’s prove her wrong! On three 1…2….3!!!” Then when I told Lexi to move in a smidgen closer Tatum cracked up laughing and pulled away. That’s a brother for ya!

Told ya, my little model. She totally worked it!! Oh and that other head piece on the right…..yep you guessed it, I made that one, too!!

He wouldn’t admit it, but he secretly had a good time! I mean, can’t you tell by that smile?!

The sun light was perfect, the kids and I had fun. We laughed, we raced (Tatum won!), and ended up with some awesome photos. What more can you ask for?!
