PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: How quickly they grow ♥ Austin Baby Photographer

March 30th, 2009 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Austin Newborn Photographer, sneak peek

I don’t know why, but it continues to floor me whenever I see kiddos that I haven’t seen in a bit.  It’s only been six months since I met the little cutie on the right, but my word, she has changed SO much!

[I feel very lucky to have gotten the chance to snap this quiet time on the sly - a boy and his cars.]

Loved this last shot…this detailing on this dress was so lovely! Thanks so much to the R family for inviting me back to your home to capture your family again!

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: In the morning ♥ Austin Children’s Photography

March 27th, 2009 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Austin Newborn Photographer

It’s always the best time of day.  My little early riser comes in to greet us in the morning with his cheerful energy. And then the two of them talk and play.  He has taken “big brother” to a level I never realize existed. They are so connected. [Left the first one with the WB SOOC...that's how it looks at dawn and I so want to remember exactly what it looks like to watch them].

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: Pinkle’s Pic of the Month (March) ♥ Austin Baby Photographer

March 27th, 2009 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Pic of the Month - Austin Photographer

This had to be March’s pic. Had to. Would you believe it if I told you that I wasn’t even ready when she did this? Truly…I was running my yap, trying to set something up, looking around for better light.  And all of a sudden I see her strike this pose and I’m totally not ready.  Never checked my exposure, I wasn’t even sure I was in focus. And let me tell you I’m thanking the photography gods that I was able to capture her absolutely adorable pose!  Congrats, C family!

For more details on what this means, see here.

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: worth it? ♥ Austin Children’s Photographer

March 24th, 2009 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam, Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer

I don’t even want to tell you how far outside of Austin we had to drive to find a safe place to catch the bluebonnets in bloom.

My boys suffer from SEVERE PCS (Photographer Child Syndrome).

I bribed them with a present to give me just ONE picture.

We battled rain and fire ants and very full diapers.

My boys pretty much hate pictures (me?) now.

Was it worth it?

[ETA: For those who asked where this is, I'm sorry to say that if I had to find it again, I probably wouldn't be able to.  It's about an hour or so outside of Austin off of 71.  How's that for good directions? ;-)]

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: time. ♥ Austin Baby Photographer

March 23rd, 2009 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam, Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer

I realized today that it was exactly a year ago that the course of my life was about to take a HUGE turn and I was totally oblivious. I was cruising along with a booming business, planning out a future with the hubs and my two boys.  Having another child was the furthest thought from my mind.  The next day, I would learn that #3 was on the way…you could have knocked me over with a feather.  I thought it was the worst of the worst timing, but in reality, her timing couldn’t have been more perfect. It was hard for me to fathom having room for one more…in my life, in my budget, in my heart. But she just fits perfectly…and effortlessly.  She’s only 4 months old.  I don’t know how someone so tiny and so young could have such an impact, but somehow, she has.  She makes me appreciate life more.  She makes me appreciate my boys more. She makes me perform better at my job. She has made me a better mother.  A better wife.  A better person.

I love how she clasps her hands together.

And of course, I love when she laughs.

Interesting story how Mee Maw stumbled upon that website...you see I hinted to her that perhaps she spoils her grandkids too much and she Googled to find something to prove me wrong.  Next thing you know, she found a website that proved me both right and wrong. ;-)]

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: they don’t stay like this forever ♥ Austin Baby Photographer

March 21st, 2009 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, sneak peek

This little girl is going to be one soon. She’s already got the whole model thing figured out. I quite literally gasped when she struck that pose. (She reminds me so much of my own daughter, too).

This is her older sister on the right.  I got a little choked up today thinking that it was 2 years ago when we took this:

To the C crew: thank you so much for driving out to the boonies today.  Your girls are just beautiful and I’m so happy to have been given the opportunity to capture their “first year” images for you!

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: Hubble, etc. ♥ Austin Kids Photographer

March 19th, 2009 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Random Ramblings

This is Hubble. He belongs to T’s class.  He got to spend a week with us.

Hubble digs Taekwondo.

Other random pics I’ve been meaning to share:

Um…am I the only one who remembers back when you had to pay out the wazoo to have the Bumbo shipped in from Africa (I think that’s where it’s from)?

Last pic…an adorable gift to Miss A from the lovely Maria (can’t wait for our session, btw!).

Those are onesies.  Isn’t this the coolest packaging ever?

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: Now this was fun. ♥ Austin Family Photographer

March 16th, 2009 , Posted in Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, sneak peek

I have been looking forward to this one for a long time.  When dad talked about his family, I could almost “see” him grinning.  When I met them all today, I realized why.

[ETA: Oooops!  Posted the wrong pic here last night.  Now we have little man's eyes o-p-e-n!]

Wow. Wow. Wow. What an amazing and beautiful and fun and loving family!
