Baby (M) {Cypress, TX Newborn Photographer}

You've already had a bit of a Sneak Peek of this beauty if you follow my Facebook page. She was the absolute PERFECT model! I would move her, she'd make a tiny peep, and then settle immediately back into deep sleep. What a dream!

The (H) Family {Cypress Family and Senior Portrait Photographer}

I always enjoy the change of pace that working with "big kids" gives me. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE the little ones - but I don't have to chase teenagers or bribe them with candy, sing silly songs, or make funny faces at them.

In fact, it was these two awesome girls who made faces at me! They were a ton of fun and so easy to work with.

The (O) Family {Cypress Family and Children's Photographer}

It was great to catch up with this family over the weekend! Mom and I became friends after I did her family session last year (which is one of the things I love about my job!) After some scheduling and weather issues, we were finally able to get together and it was well worth the wait!

Enjoy the Sneak Peek!

The (W) Family {Cypress, TX Family and Child Photographer}

I met the sweetest family this weekend! They took a chance on the weather, driving out from Pearland to meet me, and we were blessed with a wonderful, rain-free session. As usual, I loved playing with the kiddos and chatting with Mom and Dad.

While talking with Mom, I learned that she works for an amazing non-profit charity organization called Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance, helping kids at Texas Children's Hospital and MD Anderson. (Check out their website or their Facebook page by clicking on one of the hyperlinks.)

Now, onto their Sneak Peek!

Look at those eyes!

Baby Maddie! {Cypress, TX Newborn Photographer}

I LOVE, LOVE doing newborn sessions! Love them!! It made me so happy to have two of them this week. :)

As an added bonus, this gorgeous angel is the new daughter of one of my old friends. It took a very long time for Miss Maddie to fall into that deep sleep we needed (like, 3 hrs!) but I didn't mind one bit. Her mommy and I just visited, had lunch, caught up, and of course oohed and aahed over her preciousness.

The Whole (C) Family! {Cypress, TX Family Photographer}

Happy New Year, everybody! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday!

I got to start 2011 off with a family that I met about 6 months ago. At that time, I worked with Mom, Dad, and their beautiful newborn, Piper. (Remember THIS post?) This time, they brought the rest of the family along, and I had a great session with the whole group!
