Pinkle’s Pic of the Month ♥ Austin Family Photographer

The Pic of the Month is picked by me…just because, sometimes based on one or more of the following criteria:

  • "Wow. You wouldn’t believe what we had to do to get this shot."
  • "Wow. Did s/he really just make that face?"
  • "Wow. How flippin’ adorable is this kid?"
  • "Wow. This was just a fun session all around."

The winner from each month will be featured on the blog and the front page of the GALLERY site and on twitter.  Each selection will also be entered into "Pinkle’s Pic of the Year" at the end of 2009.  The Pic of the Year winner will be determined by YOU, the blogstalkers, and will receive an 11×14 canvas of their pic AND a $500 Pinkle Toes gift card toward their next session.  No purchase necessary to win.

Pic of the Month: December ’09

Because I love the color. And I love the hat. And I love babies that love to rock.

Pic of the Month: November ’09

I selected this image because it was such a new and challenging technique for me, but mostly because she was worked so hard, was so patient, and sacrificed this dress, her beautiful curls, and make-up just to get this shot. Congrats J!

This was my choice for Pic of the Month for obvious reasons ;-). Congrats Miss A!

Pic of the Month: July ’09

At first, this may seem like an unusual choice for Pic of the Month, but I do love these images together.  She’s a mom of 2 boys and had her daughter (just like me). I love the connection, the wonder, and the purity that was captured at this session.

Pic of the Month: June ’09

Because she trusted my vision.

Because she bought the dress just for this experiment.

Because she laid down in a creek with crawdads.

Because she made it look beautiful anyway.

Pic Pics of the Month: April ’09


It was a tough call for the month of April.  So many favs in the bunch, so we chose two. The first pic was selected because I thought it was so perfect how her necklace matched the location.  Loved the texture, loved her belly button (didn’t even notice that until someone pointed it out to me. The second image I love because of the texture (again) and I was so amazed at how cool this looked in black and white.  Plus, the baby is just SO beautiful!

Pic of the Month: March ’09

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!
