Landon 6 (Correction: 7) months

Landon was on this blog back in February. He's changed a lot since then. Here are few from this morning. I know his parents are waiting anxiously for me to get these posted. He's is such a gorgeous little wild haired man.

A couple more of Cody

Here are a couple of Jaci's little brother, Cody. I thought about photoshopping out the mosquito bites and bruises on his legs. But that's just part of being a little boy. And you can't be a kid in South Texas without mosquito bite legs. I really like these two of him on the swing.

Cute little Jaci

I'm finishing up the pictures from the cousins shoot I posted about last week. Here are a few of Miss Jaci. I love her little snaggle-tooth smile.

Mock studio shots

I don't have a studio. Let's just get that out of the way in case you were wondering. And I don't have any kind of studio lighting or backdrops. I shoot outside or in people's homes. A lot of times I've never been in that place before so I have to think a little to make it work. Generally speaking, I'm not a huge fan of traditional looking studio stuff. A lot of it's just a little too Life Touch or Olan Mills for me. Sometimes I think it would be cool to have a studio but it just kind of seems a little stuffy or something. Plus there's the whole studios are expensive issue. Anyway, here are a couple of pictures that look like they might have been done in a studio but they were actually done in this couple's bedroom. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. I think I might invest in a black backdrop thing in the somewhat near future. What's behind them is actually their curtain, which I desaturated and darkened. And I know I've posted a lot of pictures of this particular family but I love babies. Have I said that already?

Phillip's Les Paul

I was messing around with the camera and took this of my husband playing guitar. I took it at a high ISO on purpose and it was really grainy. I dirtied it up a lot more and I really like the end result. From cute babies to messy guitar pictures. My oh my, check out my versatility! Wow, that sounds really arrogant. If you know me, you know otherwise.


This is the proud big sister of baby Trent.  She is such a little doll.  I love her cool animal print bedding.  I need to get me some bedding like that.

A few more from last week

I'm finishing up some editing from Carolyn's family shoot. I really like the way these turned out so I figured I'd stick them on here. Why not? That's what this is for, right? I'm going to bed!

Happy Father's Day

Sunday is Father's Day so I thought I would post some pictures of some daddies and their "babies." I hope you guys have a good Father's Day. I hope you eat a good lunch and have a long nap. I hope you wrestle with your kids and get all good and sweaty. Mostly, I hope you know that you are loved.

And last, but not least, my favorite daddies, Phillip and my father-in-law. Here are a few of Phillip with our boys. The last one is of our boys and their granddad.
