Break from the Holiday Madness

Wanted to show this sneak peek while I had a moment to breathe from the madness of the holidays...

This big brother was once a baby planner too, just like his new baby brother!! How time flies.

If you are a client, you will be sure to know and love sweet Suzanne, who is my office assistant. However long before she was my assistant, she was my client...back when big brother Matthew was just a toddler himself.

Let me be very honest here. Devine Photography would NOT run without Suzanne. She is the one who places your orders, packages them up beautifully, calls you to tell you when they're ready, creates your beautiful DVDs, and keeps me from losing everything. I have the "artistic" brain (at least that's what I tell myself) that keeps this office in constant chaos and mess. She sweeps right in here and whips me into shape and I love it. Because of her I was able to have a somewhat "normal" busy season this year without losing too much time with my children, and I am SO grateful to her for that. She cares so much about you guys as clients and loves to see the pictures of your babies and children.

So this weekend, although the original plan was to do an outdoor, urban shoot in downtown McKinney, it was just too cold and so we had a fun casual session at her house. The thing I love most about Suzanne as a client is that she trusts my artistic eye and appreciates the everyday moments being captured. I love walking in her home and seeing the "outtakes" from our sessions hanging as 11x14's on the wall in the kitchen.

Taylor and Alex

Love these girls, see them lots...I try to make each session different from the last, and went for a little more casual style this time. It's my favorite way to shoot families:

John, Charlie, and William

Haven't seen these guys since, well, there were only two of them! They were among the very first of my clients back when I first left my "real job".

And I have to say, this session with them from this Saturday ranks among my favorite. EVER. Love it when it all just clicks like this:

One of my fave images of all time:

Jake, Tyler, and Ella

Maybe only my own three kids have seen me with a camera in front of my face as much as these three have....LOVE this family to pieces.

*side note: it has been a very rough week for my family regarding my father. I am still working but it may take a little more time than usual to return calls and emails, although I'm working like crazy to catch up. You can read about what happened at my Dad's caring bridge page

Wyatt, Ellie, and Lucy

One of the greatest joys of a being family photographer is updating family photos when a new member arrives. This was my first time meeting sweet Lucy, although her brother and sister and I are old buds. I think we hit it off :)
