Ive almost forgotten how to blog~

I'm still around blog peeps. I'm posting this just for you Grandma Sally!!! October has come and gone and now I'm feeling the pressure of only 7 more Fridays til Christmas!!! I have 16 family photo sessions booked, a couple parties to shoot and one December wedding to add to the mix...and I still have my faithful Christmas decorating clients that need me! Oh yeah and a big 7 year old birthday party for The Doll!! No pressure... but I love every minute of it. The weather this weekend was none less than perfect. Hoot wasn't feeling well for Halloween. He almost didn't even dress up. He's got nagging sinus and allergies just like his daddy. Libbie knew what she wanted to be the day after Halloween last year and never wavered once she made up her mind.(I don't want to imagine what next years costume will be) We found this adorable pink ninja costume on Ebay for a song and she was delighted. She practiced her ninja skills for over a month and was ready for battle come Halloween night. This year we decided to stay home and have a friends over for chili and treats. We've never been home on Halloween so it was fun to pass out candy to all the spooks and goblins and precious Elsa, Ana and Olfas that graced our door. I'm signing off to get busy editing and hope to post again soon! Love you Grandma Sally:)

The Miracle of Life

I got to experience God's miracle of Life last night. I was privileged to be asked to photograph the labor and delivery of precious baby Judah Taylor Cone. This was so special because I have known and loved Judah's daddy since he was just a cranky teenage boy with a hot hot temper. I've watched him grow into a Godly young man and witnessed the blessing of his marriage to a beautiful Godly woman and over the years I have fallen in love with her and her family. It is such an encouragement to see God at work and the fruit of two families that did things right. Judah is beyond blessed to have these two as parents and then even more blessed to have the extended family that he has. That's all the gushing... introducing the Cone family....

Summer

Summer is here indeed. We're in full swing with camps, swimming,surf lessons, late night movies, sleeping in and yes already the dreaded "B" word... Wereeeeeee Borrrrrreeeedd... Once again I find myself playing the lead role of Entertainment Director. I do love summer though! I took the Doll out for a blazing early afternoon session. I'm trying out full sun and not looking for shade like I usually tend to do. I just love this one of my girl. She really is a doll.

Lone Star Round Up 2014 Favorites!

Lambert invited me a few weeks ago to ride along with him to Austin to one of "his" car shows. It just so happened I had no sessions booked for Friday so I agreed to tag along. He usually takes a couple friends and it's a guys trip. I am so so so glad I went. It was totally relaxing and fun to spend the day with him. I was on visual overload from the moment we arrived and could not take enough pics... I almost didn't bring my camera... thank goodness I did. I had so many opportunities to capture beauty. AND we met some amazingly talented people!
