sleep study.

February 28th, 2010 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam, Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Commercial Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, austin childrens photographer

After the past few very rough days, it was lovely to see her finally sleeping so peacefully. Like a little angel.

More on that beautiful shirt later, by the way.

Also, if you haven’t been to the homeschool blog in a while…

Ugh.

February 26th, 2010 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam, Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Random Ramblings, austin childrens photographer

She’s been so sick and now I’m getting it, too. We’ve been good for nothing much except snuggling by the TV for these past few days. I hope she turns the corner soon. I miss my sunny princess. 

Since I don’t feel much like blogging myself, thought I’d share with you some recent Pinkle Toes blog features and let them do the talkin’:

The Maternal Lens

The Baby Cove

Nighty, night.

Well, this morning started off fine and dandy

February 23rd, 2010 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam, Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Commercial Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, austin childrens photographer, sneak peek

Albeit, a little cold. But who cares when you get to work with a boy this charming? (Great to see you guys again, today, M!)

But then, I spent the afternoon like this:

She’s absolutely pitiful. It’s so hard when your kids are sick. You can’t do anything and you can’t do anything for them. Snuggles are good. But does it make me a bad mom to say that I secretly enjoyed being forced to do nothing all day but hold my sleeping, fever-flushed angel in my arms? Perhaps, but it’s still precious to me.

This kid is too beautiful to be mine.

It’s almost not fair for a boy to get rosy cheeks and lashes like his. Look out ladies…I’m afraid he has the makings of a heartbreaker.

boys will be boys.

Give a boy a chair and next thing you know, we’ve got Pinkle Toes X Games going on here. LOVE it! [Not sure if you can see it, but in the top left pic...check out the tongue...cracks me up!]

There is just an incredible amount of interest and texture and unique style on the east side of Austin and we could not have had more beautiful weather. It was so very wonderful to see you guys again, but mostly, it was wonderful just to give you a big hug.

[As with all Xpressions sessions, these images have only received basic edits to enhance contrast, but have otherwise not been retouched. The April 18th Xpressions are booked solid, but we do have 2 openings left for March 21st - The Clawfoot Tub Sessions. I've also opened up May 16th where we're introducing a new concept that I'll tell you about later. More details on Xpressions HERE.]

Absolutely worth it.

Thanks for braving the elements and wild outdoors today, K. I think we got some fantastic family pictures for you in spite of it all.

behind the scenes: newborn session

February 17th, 2010 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Newborn Photographer, Random Ramblings, sneak peek

I always think it’s so much fun to see these, so I thought I’d share a little behind the scenes with you.  I try to remember to step back and take pictures of the surroundings, but usually I forget. This time, I happened to catch a glimpse of it in the mirror and thought "ooooh, perfect!" Enjoy, but don’t let it fool you. Newborns aren’t always this peaceful. We were pretty darned lucky with this little angel.

Pssst….THIS SUNDAY:

February 16th, 2010 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Commercial Photographer, Austin Engagement Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Austin Maternity Photographer, Austin Pregnancy Photographer, Austin Senior Portraits, Austin Xpressions Photography, austin childrens photographer

We’ve got one, teeny-tiny little opening left in the morning for our Xpressions sessions, Sunday, February 21st. We are going to be touring some of my favorite spots in trendy East Austin. Think hip, colorful, urban, funky, and fun! If you’ve been thinking about grabbing one of these photo sessions, just do it.

  • Maybe you need engagement pictures or haven’t had your picture taken with your significant other in a looooooooong time?
  • Some hip bridal portraits would be amazing at this location!
  • Maybe you’re expecting a baby and haven’t had maternity pictures done yet?
  • Maybe your baby has just figured out how to sit up on his own?
  • Perhaps your older "baby" is about to lose her first tooth and you need some pictures before it’s too late?
  • Or maybe you’re a graduating senior in Austin need to have your senior portraits made?

Let me know and let’s see if we can get together this Sunday.

[As with all Xpressions sessions, these images have only received basic edits...no retouching or additional enhancements.]

magic of the night.

February 15th, 2010 , Posted in Austin Commercial Photographer, Austin Engagement Photographer, sneak peek

Lyndsay and I photographed our Helping Hearts session winners tonight. Um, magic…just pure magic. I seriously don’t know how we’re supposed to choose from these images because if Lyndsay got anything close to what I’m looking at here (and I’m sure she did), we’re in trouble. Thank you guys so much for such a great evening. You were simply ADORABLE and it just means the world that you were both totally willing to try any and all of mine and Lyndsay’s hair-brained schemes. Speaking of Lyndsay…

PHOTOG DOWN!
