Smash Cake In-home Lifestyle Photo Session | Round Rock, TX

This little man turned 1 year old!

This little man had a blast making a huge mess at his first birthday party surrounded by his grandparents, parents, and aunts.  I was able to photograph him before the cake capturing his 1 year old milestone photos.  After his 1 year milestone photos, I shot a few family photos.  Then the cake came out!

Little man had no idea what to do with it after first.  His Grandma and Aunts helped him out after he tried to put out the birthday candle with his fingers.  The cake ended up everywhere, but he had a lot of fun making a huge mess.  And I had a blast photographing his birthday cake smash!

3 year old Birthday Mini-Session | Georgetown, TX

What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a photo session! I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this almost 3 year old little girl in Downtown Georgetown, Texas.  We walked around a block, and I was able to capture her adorable personality.  And she loved posing for the camera!  She is such a cutie!  Another reason I love my job as a photographer.

Happy Birthday to this beautiful little girl!

Family Photography Session | Round Rock, TX

Family photos are cherished.  At the time, it may not feel that way.  But in the future, everyone, including your grown-up children, will be glad they were taken.  I remember dreading having family photos taken.  The stress of getting ready, the outfits that were picked out for me as a child, the pressure of making Mom happy and being good to have the pictures turn out nice.  It was an ordeal since at the time, digital wasn't readily used by anyone.  As I look back at all those photos, I'm glad my Mom had them taken.  We might not have been at the height of fashion at the time (or maybe we were and that's how bad 80s fashion was), but those family photos capture a memory.

With that said, I love being able to provide those memories for families in Round Rock today!  Now I get to share those memories with others and capture another's family's love for each other.  Because sometimes, you want the photo of a two year old crying about someone else touching his balloons! 

Family Photo Session | Cedar Park, TX

Photographing families is such a great joy for me.  This family's story really hit me hard as well for several reasons.  Mom wanted photos of her 1 year old son on his birthday because she wanted to create good, happy memories for her and her family.  Her little man was born premature and ended up in the NICU for awhile.  Being a photographer for The Tiny Footprints Project and photographing families journeys in the NICU, I know how much creating happy memories in a not so ideal place can mean to a family.  It means the world.

With a very happy 1 year old, his big sister, Mom and Dad, I helped create some happy memories for this wonderful family.  Happy Birthday little man!  You might have had a struggle at birth, but you are a strong and happy boy now!
