hunka chunka man | dallas child photographer

this little guy was so funny. if he was awake, he was eating. if he wasnt eating he was trying to sleep...but that only seemed to work if his mom was holing him. i could have just held him all day and smelled his head.

LOVE the smell of a newborn head :)

(the significance of the box...his family name is johnson...go figure)

growing like a weed | dallas child photographer

isnt she the most adorable little bug? i first met her when her mom called me for a newborn first ever! she was the longest baby and simply refused to curl up into a tiny ball. we had this little nest, and it was quite spacious...till we tried to put her in it. we had to settle for her oozing out the side. HA!

now look at her. she is so big now. she makes me chuckle, though. she reminds me a bit of my little gracie - sweet as can be with a touch of mafia.

love you lulu!

cool man | dallas child photographer

i just love when i get to photograph boys. especially at this age. they are just waaay too cool to have their pictures taken. they act like it is such a chore; they are doing you a favor if they look at you...then it happens! they start to enjoy it. this cutie-pie started "helping" me figure out where to take the next he should stand, etc.

LOVE that...

an open book | dallas child photographer

kids are so funny to me.

if they are happy, they show it. if they aren't...well...they are not shy about letting you know. this little bug had the sweetest smile and the cutest scowl. she is definitely her own "woman" and knows what she wants - and doesnt want. :)

love | dallas child photographer

i fell in love with this little boy. even though he refused to look at me. even though he repeatedly tried to turn his back on me in protest. i LOVED this kid. he had, quite possibly, the sweetest face and the sweetest smile and the sweetest disposition.

his sister...she is the 3rd kiddo that i have photographed lately that reminds me of my little niece who lives far, far away. so...she immediately felt special to me. her mom warned me that she may be a tough customer but i kid you not, the moment she hopped out of the car we were friends. goof ball friends...which is waay better than BFF's.

thanks guys for making me smile!

striking | dallas child photographer

mwhoohahaha!! {evil laugh} you can try to hide behind the moody teenager front, but i will seek out your inner goofball and i will conquer!!

i should show you his dorky, goofy faces that he was pulling everytime he thought i wasnt paying attention...but that would just be plain mean. better to let him keep the moody reputation :)

had fun, kiddo.

sweet as chocolate | dallas child photographer

the kids that i have the fortune of spending my time with are the most adorable kids...inside and out. you can just see it in their smiles. this little bug was just squeezably sweet and...she made me chuckle the entire session. her mom brought a bunch of apples as a prop but i had to be quick and get those apples in some shots because...this little thing ate like 4 apples!! i'm lucky to get my kids to eat a half of an apple a week.

picture perfect | dallas child photographer

when this kid stepped out of the car she was quiet. she was shy and she wanted to look anywhere but in my direction. i didnt even know what color her eyes were till i put the camera in front of my face. she looks like she has been a model for ages and ages and those eyes! i love eyes...

this girlie was a bucket o' fun and a great sport too! not only did it rain, we were caught in a virtual downpour. imagine me seeking shelter under a tree or bush to protect my camera and this cutie braving the elements...asking if we could take "just one more" picture. :) LOVE that.

it was fun...
