it's like a little blue box... only better!

It's a chubbyfoot gift certificate!

3 more days to get one for someone you love.

here's the details:
* you don't have to pay now. Just tell me the amount you intend to give and you can pay at the time of the actual photos (or if you're giving as a gift to someone not in your family, just send me a check when they book)

* you don't have to give the entire amount. If you know they'd like to have pictures done, you can give $100, $150,etc..  that they can use towards their pictures this year.

* call or email by noon on Tuesday. I can either get it in the mail Tuesday or can email you something to print if you like.

and because every post needs a photo...
a few happy faces, not unlike a recipient of a chubbyfoot gift certificate! =)

at home

I LOVE these sessions. And as I type I realize I've never done one at my home with my family?! It's just so fun to capture a family's personality in their own environment; the kids in their rooms; babies in the tub; the fam playing scrabble.. whatever it is that makes their family unique and then having those memories pohtographed so when the kids no long want to play games with us, or let us in their rooms (!) we'll have the pictures to remember!
Here's a few faves from this past year. (many more to post, but these are a good start!)
can you tell what this handsome fella loves right now??

I love this shot too. I always try and get in front of the house. We have moved a couple of times in my son's life and he's very nostalgic about the places he's lived, so it reminds me to make sure and get the front of the house so they can remember.

the big apple

so in the midst of a couple of hundred shoots, it was my crazy idea to take my favorite almost-6 year old to NYC for Christmas!? My bff from high school has been on girl trips the last 3 years and we decided to take our mini-me's this year. She did a wonderful job planning and navigating and looked quite fabulous while doing so..

we couldn't believe it snowed in Houston while we were gone! (God's way of taking care of my son while we were away, I think!).. but we were fortunate to get a smidge ourselves while there.
