Independent Cuties

It’s not often that I post pictures of my kids or family for that matter….I have a crazy that won’t let things rest and well she’s the reason I tend to leave them off my blog. I have decided that I am not going to let her royal craziness have that part of my life anymore!

So with that said, this months blog challenge was red, white and/or blue. Now, I usually attempt to get themed pictures of the kids for all of the fun holidays we take part in. So of course for Independence Day we went with a full red, white and blue theme but kept it simple and casual. I really wanted to play with some sparklers but little man is definitely not ready to play with those (I have a tendency to forget he’s only 19 months old and not 2.5 or 3 like everyone seems to think when they guess his age)! Plus, he really doesn’t sit still on location shoots all that well either! He made me work for the whole 2 shots I got of him! My daughter is only good for so many as well so I have to be quick and ready with her!

This is what you get when you take the kids out to the park for a quick session…

The Death Of A Season

And with the start of summer comes the death of spring….ok so in my neck of he woods, spring has been gone for a long time now! My gorgeous flowers have faded away and have turned into huge masses I wild sunflowers. Not one of my favorites as they tend to look more like giant weeds but nothing I can do about that! So for those of you who miss spring, I leave you with the beautiful pastels of what was once a reminder of cooler times and the gorgeous colors that once flooded my evenings!

And yes you guessed it! This lovely adventure is another part of the round robin challenge I am a part of! June’s color scheme was pastel and well this is as pastel as it gets around here lol!

Please continue on Christine Neutgens to view what she came up with for this challenge and to visit the rest of the photographers in the group!

Rising Beauty

I have taken on a new love for nature and landscape photography.

Don’t get me wrong, there is something about nature that is soothing to me. I can pick up my camera and shoot. I don’t have to worry about where my subject is in relation to someone else, or how to pose it…I can just let it be.

The photos below fall in that soothing category for me. The moon as she was rising was amazing and the trees in my yard created a great effect until she was clear of them.

I decided to use these for my blue/yellow challenge this month and while I normally find something that contains both colors (this is normally just on accident that that happens) I could not find anything that fit both of these color combos.

I however am not required to use both in a challenge and how could I pass up the blue of the night sky!? It was absolutely gorgeous.

Now if you wouldn’t mind leaving a bit of love (as I truly appreciate it) and then heading over to visit Tina Dominguez (as she has come up with something amazing for you as well) as well as the other photographers in the challenge…we would greatly appreciate it!

Sweet A Turns Three {Guadalupe County – Seguin Child Portraiture}

Is it time for a themed birthday shoot yet!? Why yes it is!

Little Miss A has been a client since she was 9 months old, when I first opened shop. She is now three and for her birthday this year, she is having a carnival party! Lots of popcorn, cotton candy and your typical carnival games…like the one my kid loves most…get a ping pong ball in the bowl and you get to take home a fish! Yup, there was not only cotton candy and popcorn in this shoot but a big gold fish to boot!

This sweet girl is a blast! And like any girl, she definitely let’s me know when she’s done with me! But I will take her royal cuteness any day!

Little Man C Turns Three {Guadalupe County – Seguin Child Portraiture}

It seems that March, April and May not only ring in spring but LOTS of birthdays!

Sweet little man C has turned three and I can’t believe how much he has grown since his second birthday! Last year he was very quiet and serious and wouldn’t smile for anything, no matter what I did. This year he was so full of giggles and smiles and into everything little boys like to get into…rocks and chunking them into the creek! He had a blast so I just let him roll with it!

Adorable H Turns One {Guadalupe County – Seguin Child Portraiture}

And another adorable client turning one!! Adorable little H gave me some of my most favorite newborn shots and I find it hard to believe he is already one!!

Seriously, where did this last year go? For his shoot, we got to kill a cake!! It was a little bigger than what his mom wanted but we made good use of it and I think H loved it!

Beautiful B Turns One {Guadalupe County – Seguin Child Portraiture}

It’s that time of year…I get nostalgic and realize its been a year since my first newborn clients have come to see me. It’s amazing how fast time flies!

It honestly seems like yesterday that I took Miss B’s newborn photos but alas…here she is in all her cuteness!

She is such a sweet girl and I just want to wish you a very happy first birthday B!

A Little Family Fun {Guadalupe County – Seguin Family Portraiture}

Forgive me…I have been abnormally quiet! There has been a lot going on and my brain just doesn’t function as it should. I guess that’s really nothing new, but it just seems to be happening more often than not these days!

So, it’s time to play a little catch up! I have had several sessions since my last sneak peek and I think I really should post the new peeks now!

Say hello to my fab family that made it out for my springtime minis! I see these guys A LOT and I LOVE watching them and especially watching the kids grow! I also love that sweet girl A asks specifically for me to take her photos! I feel loved!

So enjoy this adorable family!
