Just a quick note to let you know that we are now booked for Pinkle Toes premium sessions for the holidays.  If you missed out and still want a chance to have portraits made in time for the holidays, you can still sign up for the October 4th Pinkle Toes Xpressions session.  I am giving away a set of 24 flat holiday cards (choose from several designs) to the first 3 people who book an October 4th Xpressions session!  (If you’ve already booked, you can still get the cards, too! ;-)).

In other news, there are only 3 premium session openings left for 2009, which can be held in either the first two weeks or the last week of December.

 
So far, these holiday sessions have been phenomenal! I can’t wait to start shipping out your cards!

Pinkle’s Pic of the Month: August

August 29th, 2009 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Holiday Pictures, Austin Kids Photographer, Austin Newborn Photographer, Pic of the Month - Austin Photographer

Okay, folks, we’ve got another two-fer.  I just couldn’t pic one, so here are the Pinkle’s Pic(s) of the Month for August:

Because I loved the yellow flowers at his house.

And our tie:

Because they glowed with happiness.

Congrats to both families!  (You can click the above pics to see more images from their sessions).

Wow!  I just looked at all of the winners so far. So glad *I* don’t have to be the one to choose Pinkle’s Pic of the Year!

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: Brandon’s Birth Day ♥ Austin Birth Photographer

August 27th, 2009 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Birth Photographer, Austin Birth Photography, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Maternity Photographer, Austin Newborn Photographer, Austin Pregnancy Photographer, Austin Twin Photographer, Austin Video & Slideshow

Photographing a c-section birth is such a vastly different experience for me. Without the jitters of wondering how mom’s labor will go (or when), I can relax a little bit and take the time to really observe the relationships and everyone’s reactions to what’s going on. I can also get pics of the things mom isn’t able to see while she’s recovering. Wow, V!  How exciting (and scary) it must have been to know that you were going to go into that room with one child and come out as a mother of two, with a brand new baby. Just like that! From my perspective, it was so very peaceful, so quick, so miraculous. I was honored to have been part of that beautiful day and to document this for him and his family–especially the part where the brothers meet for the first time.  It always cracks me up how the siblings just aren’t too sure what to make of this new, wrinkly toy! (Oh yes! A special thanks to Lyndsay for inspiring the door shots ;-).

 (Link not working? Try this.)

If you are in the Austin area and would like to have your birth experience photographed, please contact me as soon as you can as I can only cover a limited number of births at a time.

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: Into Eden. ♥ Austin Newborn Photographer

August 26th, 2009 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Holiday Pictures, Austin Kids Photographer, sneak peek

Oh, really?

Really!!??

C’mon. This is so very unfair. How can mom and dad be so beautiful after having a newborn baby? How can a newborn baby be even more beautiful than her parents? I’m going to have to speak to someone about this. Immediately. ;-)

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: totally unrelated. ♥ Austin Family Photographer

August 25th, 2009 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam, Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Holiday Pictures, Austin Kids Photographer, Austin Maternity Photographer, Austin Pregnancy Photographer, Random Ramblings, sneak peek

Prepare yourselves for a series of totally unrelated images. First up, we got all dolled up the other day to go out to dinner. I think she literally looked like a doll.

Logs (AKA The Middle Child) has taken such an active role when it comes to his baby sister. He loves to help feed her and the other day, I was lucky enough to happen upon him reading one of his favorite stories to her. Sigh.

The second set is Amry with her Pop. Truth be told, I’ve been dying to get a shot of Pop’s hands (they’re just so cool) next to baby skin ever since I found out we were having our first child. Pop (Virgil’s dad) is pretty elusive, though, and managed to escape me…until I snuck these in this weekend!

Speaking of sneaks, here’s one for you, D!

And finally, a look into what has consumed our entire summer.  It’s been all things butterfly in the Anderson household. Collecting, humidifying, mounting, displaying, mapping, classifying, drawing, reading.  Tristan knows all of their scientific names, geographic origin, and the types of plants upon which the corresponding caterpillar feeds. It’s absolutely amazing!

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: Connection. ♥ Austin Baby Photographer

August 23rd, 2009 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Holiday Pictures, Austin Kids Photographer, sneak peek

We’re back.  We survived the wilderness.  It was wonderful. Lots of pics to come, but until then, I had to put a sneaky up for mom from this evening’s magical session. Wow, two nights of beautiful sunsets and beautiful families. My camera may burst from all the joy! This is why I love Texas.

PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: The Wilderness. ♥ Austin Children’s Photographer

August 21st, 2009 , Posted in Austin Family Photographer, Austin Holiday Pictures, Austin Kids Photographer, sneak peek

The title of this post refers to two things. First: I’m going to be out shooting on location in the wilderness this weekend with no phone or internet access. Yes. You’ve read that correctly. No phone. No internet. I’m afraid. I’m very afraid.  Not sure if I will make it outta there. But, just in case you didn’t hear back from me, I wanted to let you know.

Secondly, I traveled out to the wilderness of Kerrville, TX a few weeks ago to meet up with "Mr. Romeo" in honor of his second birthday.  I’ve been working with him since he was 6 months old.  He has hair now. It totally blew me away!
