Decisions, decisions.

February 1st, 2010 , Posted in Austin Commercial Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, austin childrens photographer

I loved this session. The freedom that you get when you have a beautiful, willing and enthusiastic subject is immeasurable. Look at all the fun things we got to do!

Hard to believe how chilly it actually was outside that day. She was such a trooper.  Everything was so romantic and childlike.

I loved this session.

So much so, that I think one of these is going to *have* to be Pic of the Month for January.  But I honestly can’t decide which one. Any input?

Never say, “Never.”

I just got done telling her mom how babies between 6 months and 3 years NEVER wear hats. Mom thought that would be the case with baby girl as well. Turns out, we were so very wrong. We couldn’t get the hat *away* from her!

We had such a fine time this afternoon. I give you Exhibit B:

 (I apologize for the camera shake…I was laughing too hard to pay attention to technique by this point.)

Baby Coco Cutie.

January 27th, 2010 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Commercial Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Austin Newborn Photographer, austin childrens photographer, sneak peek

Okay, before we bombard you with any more cuteness, have you been to Baby Coco in Austin before? If not, do yourself a favor and go. Cheyenne does such an amazing job with her creative and shabby chic decorating. Every time I walk into the store, I see something new and cool.  For example:

Um, I’m sorry, but if *I* could fit into that crib, I would be waking up in that every morning. Truly a beautiful touch-n-feel-n-experience kind of store. And it’s a great place to find unique baby shower gifts, too!  Now back to your daily dose of adorableness, Baby Q, the new face of Baby Coco. This girlie has got it goin’ on!

And what about that insane Christmas tree??????  To the ridiculously talented artist that created the tree, I’m planning to sneak into the store one night and confiscate it. If you would like to keep me out of prison, please tell me how I can get such an elegant and stunning tree like that for my baby girl. Thank you very much for allowing me to continue raising my children. ;-) (More from our amazing time at Baby Coco here and here.)

six.

January 26th, 2010 , Posted in Anderson Family - My fam, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, austin childrens photographer

Tomorrow, it’s six years that we’ve known this amazing kid.

We took him on a trip this weekend–all by himself–to his favorite place.

Where he can be surrounded by butterflies, and explore, and observe, and identify. No interruptions.

He just learned to read Roman numerals and was so proud when he spotted them on our trip.

We learned that worker ants (and bees) are all female.

He didn’t stop grinning the whole time.

We spent an hour in the gift shop looking at crystals and butterflies.

Afterward, we took him out for sushi.

He ate octopus.

He thinks his missing tooth is going to grow back in by tomorrow.

I love him.

Motherhood.

January 25th, 2010 , Posted in Austin Baby Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, austin childrens photographer

This was the second opportunity I got to spend time with this family. They are close to my heart because I can completely relate to mom’s love for her sons and deep connection with her new daughter.  And I love to see how baby girl’s brothers interact with her. Reminds me so much of my own family. But they are also close to my heart because when they are in front of the camera, they are just themselves. Natural, beautiful, and bonded as a family. Getting to capture intimate moments like these is what makes family photography so precious.

“Smile, sweetie.”

January 19th, 2010 , Posted in Austin Commercial Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Special Offer, austin childrens photographer, sneak peek

I love this moment caught where mom pleads with her son to relax a little and show us his beautiful grin. He negotiated with us and agreed to participate in the session only *if* I let him take a picture of his mommy. I can’t believe this, but I agreed and handed him my camera [photographers across the world groan in disdain]. And after I saw this shot from him, I quickly wondered if I had just put myself out of business. ;-)

A little "behind the scenes" for you while I’m working behind my computer.

[Several families have already taken advantage of this special offer down here. There's still time for you, too!]

Repeat.

January 17th, 2010 , Posted in Austin Commercial Photographer, Austin Family Photographer, Austin Kids Photographer, Special Offer, austin childrens photographer, sneak peek

I’m always so honored when I’m asked to photograph a family again. I love to see how everyone has grown and changed.  Plus, there’s none of that "getting to know you" stuff…you can just pick up where you left off.  But most of all, when the kids jump out of the car and run up to me and say, "Michele! Michele!" excitedly…wow. Now that will get ya. 

This is only a small peek for you guys, but the whole session was awesome! 

[And to the blogstalkers: if you haven't arranged a 2010 session yet, don't forget about the special offer this week.]

Speaking of puppies, did you know that TODAY is the last day to VOTE FOR PINKLE’S PIC OF THE YEAR?????!!!!!
