Family Christmas Pajama Session

Last week, I had a blast photographing this family in their Christmas pajamas!

I love sessions when a family is up for anything.  They let me come in with no expectations, and we all had a fun time!

What kid doesn't like jumping around all their parent's bed while laughing, playing and smiling?!  We jumped.  We played.  We even let Mom and Dad have some fun with us too!  The two sisters absolutely adore their brother, and it shows.

Here are a few of my favorites!

Stop at Lake Pflugerville

Last week, I took the two littles over to Lake Pflugerville.  They love the water and throwing rocks into it.  I wanted to break up the monotony of going to a park to play.

What I didn't expect were the loud group of ducks waiting for us.  The ducks are accustomed to people but expect food from people.  And I was not prepared to feed ducks on my impromptu stop at the lake.

After weeks of rain, the ground by the edge of the lake was still quite muddy.  I was taking photos while running after one child or the other to keep them from becoming stuck and falling down into the mud.  Such fun parenting times!!

A sweet older gentleman stopped by the lake to feed the ducks.  He saw the kids and myself and decided to bring his bag of bread over to my littles allowing them to feed the ducks.  Such kindness is not always around these days, and it was very much appreciated by myself and my children. 

The kids had so much fun feeding the ducks!  I've promised to take them back to feed the ducks.  I'm putting it on my to do list now so I don't forget about it.

Here's a small share of documentary photos I took while at Lake Pflugerville and of the kids feeding the ducks.

Oldest and Youngest's Special Bond

My oldest and youngest have always had a special bond.

Since the day Cassidy was born, Jackson has been an awesome older brother to her.  He loved holding her, trying to feed her, and playing with her.  Even two years later, these two share something special.

Cassidy will follow Jackson around, and Jackson will allow only her in his room at times.  He'll help Andrew and I out when we ask him to go find and make sure she's not getting herself into trouble.  Because that happens a lot.

When I saw them sitting on the floor of the living room like this, I grabbed my camera and took the shot.  This image tells the story of how special their bond is without even trying.

I pray they keep this bond as they grow older.  Big brother always watching out for little sister.

And this will definitely come in handy whenever Cassidy attempts to start dating!
