From the Mouths of Babes...

Houston Newborn Photographer Blog1

I was having writer's block with this post, so I asked Jude to describe this baby for me. This is what he said:

"She dosen't like popsicles."
"Her toes are cute."
"Chocolate is NOT for babies, mommy"
and finally "She is a good baby. But she wants to be a bad baby."

I asked him what he meant and by then he had changed his mind- "Mommy, she IS a good baby. She dosen't want to be bad. She wants to be good."

Then he ran off to go find his tie shirt.

Happy Sunday!

Have you heard...

I have a new favorite site. My first attempt at her cake balls (a slight digression... everytime I read the word "cake balls," I think of the "schwetty balls" skit from SNL... then that of course reminds me of the Chris Farley "down by the river" skit and I giggle a little) looked like lumpy pieces of you-know-what ... of course, I had the girls "helping" which contributed to the hot mess that was my cake balls... but I am going to keep practicing and promise to post some pictures of the masterpieces I am sure to create soon!

Enough about cake balls... how about this sweet little family?!?

Raising Grass

One of my favorite quotes:

{My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard.  Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass."  "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply.  "We're raising boys."  ~Harmon Killebrew}

These pictures remind me of one of my most favorite quotes.


Sure, the mess on the patio and table took a bit of time to clean up. But I'm not trying to raise a picture perfect (or 100% clean) home. I'm trying to raise children.  Children who like to paint on themselves. One day soon someone will tell them they are not supposed to paint on themselves and they will believe it. But until then, I'll cherish this art.

Tie Shirts

Had to send some props to this talented Etsy designer.  I bought a few of these tie shirts from her... Jude is going on either week 4 or week 5 (I lost track) of wearing a tie  In fact, when all of his tie shirts were dirty this morning, he refused to leave the house with myself and the girls to go to their Gymnastics classes.  

Jesse finally brought him up there about 20 minutes into the class, tearfully wearing another shirt.   Later in the morning, I pulled a tie shirt from the dryer and he ran to it like it was his long lost puppy.  Pure joy crossed his face as he hugged it tightly to his chest.

My mom told me that when I was in fifth grade, I wore a pair of little boy's Levis 501 button fly jeans every day for an entire year.

I see myself purchasing more tie shirts in the near future if he is as much like me as everyone says :-).

How to Yawn

By Jackson.

First you give your standard yawn. A biiiiggggg yawn.


Then you smile even bigger.

I have had some serious luck getting newborns to smile lately! I love this shot- isn't it the cutest thing ever?!?!

This family won my contest earlier in the year, which was perfect- they were some of my first ever clients, so I was quite happy they walked away with the grand prize :-).

Isn't their newest addition gorgeous?

These sweet little sisters from Dallas came to stay with us over 4th of July weekend with their parents. It's funny how they each reminded me of my girls- this first cutie patootie reminded me so much of Kaylee with a bit of mischief glinting beneath that sweet and innocent little face. My instincts were confirmed as she innocently threw her Dad's iPhone in the pool at the party we were at... and apparently this wasn't the first time something like that had happened :-).

I've always jokingly said  I am going to get a call from Kaylee when she is 16... she will have hitchhiked to Mexico on a whim with a band of gypsies and tattoo artists... and she'll be at the top of a bridge ready to bungee jump tandem with Coolio. She's just got that zest and love of life  I wouldn't be surprised if she brought her little friend below with her on an adventure or two...


And her sister - a little more reserved and a little more shy like my sweet little Presley.  You can tell she is sensitive and loves very deeply, just like Presley.

Love these girls!

Out in the Country

This awesome family invited me out to their IN-CRED-IBLE family property out in the country to take pictures.  I can't even begin to tell you how jealous I am of this property. I wish it were closer because you can bet if it were I would be knocking on their door every session with clients in tow begging them to allow me to shoot there.  It's like a little piece of heaven on earth.


 Jesse walked in while I was editing these and asked why I had a picture of Russell Crowe on screen. I'm not sure if he was kidding or not...but when you first see how good looking the parents are...

...then you can appreciate why their kids are so gorgeous.


And one of their "country" dogs.  My lesson for the day was that when you live in the country, the dogs all have multiples names because they run around with the neighbor dogs and each family names each dog differently :-).
Oh! And I almost forgot- turns out Jesse is these kiddo's swim coach! We had no idea until we were driving around the property chatting away and put two and two together. Small world!

Have a wonderful 4th of July holiday weekend!
