The Cabins

My very good friend came into town over the weekend and I got a chance to do a session with their family. They are gorgeous people...I just started proofing, but I wanted to share one of their daughter. She was a trooper:) It was great to have you guys...thanks!

Ok, this was new for me. I am mostly kids, maternity, baby, but today...I got a senior. It was so much fun:) I couldn't do seniors with a name like Fancy Pants Photography, so in honor of this session, my seniors (only seniors) will be shot by Kelli Hierholzer Photography. I got a new logo for that too. It was fun all the way around. Just one for now:)

If you wait long enough...

Those silly, funny, crazy, kids will give you a good serious look:) I am sure it is quite apparent that I am partial to the serious ones. I love them! My kids laugh, smile, giggle and act silly, but MOST of the time, the look I see on their face is just a look...It is that kind of serious, maybe in thought, look that I love, and that I look for in the kids I shoot. (Is that a run on sentence or what??? And I used to be a teacher!) Another super cutie!

I love, love, love, these clothes, but then again, you are kind of lucky when your mom owns a boutique:) Oh, to be so lucky! This session was really fun. We felt a little bit mean putting her in a coat in 95 degree weather, but we were quick, and it was worth it.

If you have been in for a session lately, keep a look out for information on the Fancy Pants Photo Contest. I will be posting more within the next few weeks! Hope everyone is having a great summer.

YIKES!!! My site is down.

I am up again!!! Yea! Hope you all like the site and check in often.***

Well, as we all know, things rarely run smoothly with changes in technology. I launched my new site last night (which I am really excited about)...except it is not functioning:( Hopefully, it will be up soon, so check back! Until then, here is another recent one.

I know a little bit about this kind of relationship. I am the oldest of 3 girls. As either of my sisters will tell you, there were a lot of fights between here and there. Clothes, who gets the car, who told on who...those were the days:) In the end, twenty odd years down the road, my sisters are my best friends. Who would have thought? I see lots of fights, hugs, and friendships in these girls' future. It took a lot to get this shot, (and yes mom, I actually have even more!) but I love the emotion was a different emotion 2 seconds later, but for this moment....

Babes and Buckaroos

I am excited to announce that we will have displays at Babes and Buckaroos very soon! If you haven't been there, it is a great children's boutique on Bee Caves Road near HWY 71. Classic and trendy clothes, great for portraits and back to school! The boy model is my very own :) and two darling little girls will show off the girly stuff. I will be posting images of them soon. Look for the post, and look for our new display within the coming months!

A Mom Who Did It...

How many times do we flip through photographs, admiring out family? We see everyone there, all the way back to when they were tiny...then we realize that we are in none of the images. Mom's are notorious for being the ones who love photographs...but we are always behind the camera. I admire this mom, because I myself have never taken the time to do this. She got pictures with her kids...I think she will be so happy she did.
I think I need to set up the self timer and get busy:) Good job, Mom....

This One is For Me:)

My daughter got a haircut this week. Big deal, right? It actually was. She didn't really want to cut it. I wanted too, but didn't want her to be sad. On the way to the salon, she told me that when I was old, and she had to take care of me, she was going to cut my hair like a boy. Are you getting the feel of the day? When they made the first cut, I felt myself slipping....I was not going to cry about the haircut that I was making her get! Well, at the end of the day, we are both happy and she loves it. It fits her. Glad we both took a chance, it IS only hair...HER hair, but it worked out this time:)

Siblings...they fight all the time (at least mine do!) but deep down, sometimes waaaay deep down, we know they love each other. They are bonded for life, destined to be friends.

Ohhh, to be 3

What would we do with the energy of a 3 year old? Probably a lot! This little girl gave me a run for my money, but with that smile, what can you do? Mom and I were just along for the ride...

Rhinestone Cowboy

Well, maybe no rhinestones, but a cute cowboy nonetheless. This guy is my nephew. They were here for the 4th, and I got a little time in with them. He wasn't a huge smiler, but who needs smiles?
