introducing elliott {san antonio, tx baby photographer}

Oh pure bliss!!! I spent a couple of hours with this tiny little man, named Elliott! He stole my heart right from the beginning. He was sound asleep when I got there, and I was so excited because he was making his silly and sweet faces, while he slept. Here's one of his very first pictures I took...

So sweet! I hope you'll enjoy the rest...

These first-time parents have got it down! They were so relaxed and wonderful with him!...

Elliott up-close...

And the whole fam...

I had to include this ONE crying picture, just so everyone will know that he did in fact, put out one little whimper! And this was the ONLY tiny whimper from the whole time I was there!!! But it's pretty darn cute!...

Thanks y'all for a wonderful time and welcoming me into your home! I'll see y'all at 3 months!

a tiny contest!!!! {texas photographer}

Okay! I JUST ordered some new marketing material that I'm super-excited about!!! It should be here in a couple of weeks, and I can't wait to share it with y'all! I'm also almost out of my business cards that I've had for the last year, so I need to order some of those, too! I'm absolutely horrible at deciding which picture I've taken is a favorite to use on a business card. I honestly could pick one or two from every photo shoot, but I'm not thinking they would all fit on the little card!

Here's how it's going to work!...I've selected several pictures that I really would like to see on a new business card. Obviously, I can't decide which I like the best (and friends, there are TONS more that won't be on this contest that I equally me!!!) So, there are 2 ways to play:

1) Take a look at all of the choices below. Leave me a comment to tell me which # you like the best. Put your name by it so I'll know for sure who voted. There will be a random winner selected out of all the people that leave a comment!

2) Forward this contest to everyone you know! When they leave a comment to vote for the best picture...not only will they leave their own name so they'll have a chance to win for voting, but I would also like them to leave YOUR name in parentheses, as a referral. I'll go through all the referrals and the person with the most referrals will also win a prize!!!

So comments will end up looking like this:
- voting for #99~ Mary Sue (referred by Lydia Kay)

Does everyone understand?!!

OH! The prizes:
****First prize~ the picture with the most votes will be on my new business card (along with several other pictures I've selected) & receive $50 off their next session! {clearly if a picture with my children wins, they will not receive $50 off their session...they're already FREE!!...;))
****Second prize~ one person will be drawn randomly from all the voters & receive a $25 Target gift card !
****Third prize~ the person with the most referrals will win a FREE 20 minute photo shoot in New Braunfels, with 3 FREE 8x10s (my choosing) printed on yummy linen paper & mounted!!!! How did 3rd prize end up being the best prize???!!!

So, get started!!! Send out a link to this BLOGpost, link this to your FACEBOOK, or Tweet about it...whatever y'all do...make sure to include your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, babysitters, everyone and tell them to vote & make sure to put your name in parentheses as a referral!!! This contest will end on August 8th at 11:59 p.m. Winners will be announced on Friday the 13th!

Here are the candidates...
















Happy playing!!! ;)

logan s. - 15 months {new braunfels, tx child photographer}

Oh, does anyone remember this little beauty that graced the BLOG about...15 months ago?!!! Check her out as a tiny infant...

Well, we've done a total of 4 photo shoots together in the past year. And now, she's this cutie-patootie 15 month old, that runs all over Landa Park! Logan is super-sweet, but wasn't all that thrilled with me along for the "playdate." I think she thought just she and her mommy together was enough people to play. But Mom really got her to giggle, and we got some great shots! Enjoy...

I think she wants to tell everyone 'hello!'...

Playing, laughing, and snuggling with Mommy...

And I got to witness a very adorable tantrum! Logan was ready to go!...

How could a Mommy be upset with that little face?!

Thanks y'all, for letting me help document Logan's first 15 months! Hope to see you again soon!
