Legos + Bikes + Basketball: Saturday As We Know It

Legos + Bikes + Basketball: Saturday As We Know It

Such a sweet family.  I loved getting to start this session by them waking up their sleepy boy.  So fun to capture all of those morning snuggles (I think he was kind of bombarded with the paparazzi in his room! aka, me.)  It's interesting how family routines change as kids get older, or in this case, more littles get added to the mix.  This session was over a year ago and now there is a beautiful little girl who is part of this family.

I'm sure their mornings look different now with high chairs and cheerios, but they will always remember their special times as a family of 3.

An Evening at Home

I love those evenings where the weather is crisp and just calls for a campfire!  Doesn't happen too often in Texas summers with all of the humidity, but when s'mores are involved, you just make it work.  This was such a fun session capturing these friends having an evening at home.  I hope these images will be something they treasure and can look back on when these two beauties are in high school, remembering the moments that were unique to this specific time in their lives.

Childhood is Magic: Documentary in the Fall

I have this problem.  I see certain situations and the details and light will be so inspiring that I MUST take photos.  We were spending a nice fall evening at my sister in law's house, with all the cousins playing in the backyard.

The sun was setting with warm colors.  

The leaves were bouncing with their little feet on the trampoline.

The laughter was filling the air and the joy was contagious.

"Carter?" I said. "Can I run and get my camera???"

He just pointed to the door.  I literally RAN home, got my camera, and RAN back before that magic sun went down too much.  And I started clicking away.

You see, this is why I love documentary photography.  There is the unexpected and you are watching things happen and thinking about how you can capture it in a far from ordinary way.  Because you want the happiness and laughter and magic of the evening to somehow translate through a few still images.  You look for the different angle or the hidden moments.  And then you get home, load all of those images onto your computer and relive it all over again.  Adjusting the colors or lighting to make it just how you remember in your memory.

So here is our magical night.
