I always have so much fun photographing my hometown folks! I return every season to a shoot a few of these families and the lists keep growing. This first set is from a family I have known my WHOLE life. We started out in Clarksville, Texas together. Our parents were the best of friends. I have so many fond memories at their house. I even got to see my 2nd mom for a bit while shooting at their barn. You will see their barn in quite a few shots. Thanks Jenifer for being understanding when husband didn't quite relay all the information! LIKE, I was coming!

Speaking of going way back, here is my BFF from Middle School and High School! Well, her photo is a few down, and if you think you are seeing double, your right! She has twins!

And another sweet friend from GBMS and FSHS, I mean North Lamar. Look at her sweet girl! This girlie has some style! Her mamma drove in from Oklahoma for the shoot.

OH, and on our location change, this is what happened to my car! Stay one the road! Even if the grass is tall and the lighting is absolutely beautiful in the clearing. By the way, I was only 3 feet from the driveway!

And Mr. Caden and Ms. Chelbi. Can I say, FREEZING! These guys toughed it out and were troopers, but it was cold! Caden and I have become friends, and I have loved watching him grow up in the past year! Thanks Brandi, for braving the cold!

I do plan on returning in the spring, and those slots fill up fast, so if you are interested in a Paris Shoot, email me and I will put you on my 'first to know' list!

Well, a little later than I told her....sorry friend, but here is your sneak peek! I loved to hear your excitement when you asked about your sneak peek! Of course, I waited on the family picture, don't want to be a Christmas Card spoiler!Thank you for trusting me with your precious family and blessing me in the process. You and David speak so calmly to your girls, and your love for them and each other speaks volume! You live your life just as Jesus asks, and you are an example to everyone that you meet.

I love these sweet girls! Ella was so sweet to Elizabeth and patient with me and her as we captured this time of your family. Thank you!

These are late popping up on here, and I apologize! Things are busy and that is always good, but the blog suffers! This was a great morning, with amazing friends who kept me laughing. Who would know what the next few days would hold for this family.... God did. I love you to pieces, and no family shot, because I don't want to be the one to spoil the Christmas Card...

Yep, I love him. Maybe because I am his neighbor, or because he shares a name with Bowden (Owen), or maybe because he is just STINKIN' cute! We had a wonderful time in Argyle today, and even if it was a bit chilly, we were just praising God there was sun!

I hope this will excite mom and hold her off a few more days for me to fall in love with him over and over in the other images!

A wonderful evening with the Keller family! This little firecracker kept me on my toes! Who knew a 2 year old could be so fast! I better get this body in shape to keep up with my little guy in a few months!
The kinderprincess Ms. A! SO beautiful!

And aren't mommy and daddy beautiful as well? I mean really! Thank you sweet family for an evening in the park.

I have been excited about this day since May! The day I got to go back to Ronald McDonald House! I met some amazing little and big kids today! I can't imagine what these kids and parents go through every day! I really tried to make as little contact as possible with these kids with all the crazy germs that are going around, which was hard, because all I wanted to do was hug them to pieces! Most of these kids wear masks and were only removed during their sessions. I even got wear a mask when I went over to the hospital to photograph a sweet BIG boy!

Meet Ms. K!

She rocked it!

Then meet Bubba, or at least that is what I was told EVERYBODY calls him! Meet Mr. M!

He has a miracle of a story. Cancer! Go home, the doctors told out the rest of your short life, there is nothing we can do. Then, guess what, that silly cancer DISAPPEARED! He is going through Chemo to make SURE it is gone. My GOD is good!

Ooooo, this sweet boy stole my heart. Mr. L kept inviting me to climb into the playscape, and you know what, I DID! Before you get worried about me, I only half way got in. He was going HOME right after this shoot! PawPaw was there to help with the homecoming, and he reminded me just how blessed I was to have 3 healthy children. He also blew me away when he told me that they were just as blessed. Brought tears to my eyes.

Isn't this cute boy a heart breaker? Mr. H had a birthday yesterday and got a new car that he loved to show me. He put on a great show for me....he was a snuggler with dad. SO sweet!

AND I almost MISSED Mr. J due to traffic, I was a bit delayed in my arrival, and he had a doctors appointment that I am pretty sure he was late for! I asked him if he liked peanut or plain M&M's better, and he told me CHOCOLATE was his favorite! You bet it is! He was so loving...especially to Ms. Tricia, who coordinates my photo days. Thank you Ms. Tricia for introducing me to these sweet angels. I enjoyed our day...beyond blessed!
