B ~My Girl is 11! (Personal)/Waco Child Photographer

Every year I do a mini session with my daughter in the month of November as she turns another year older.  I've been a bad blogger this year and am way behind on sharing my sweet client's photos but the Type A in me has to get my kid blogged before 2018! And spoiler alert for the grandparents, these are the photos that make up the calendar that is currently wrapped under the tree! Happiest 11th birthday, Brennan Grace! xo

B is 10! ~ Waco Portrait Photographer/Mini Session

Every year I do a mini session with my daughter in the month of November to commemorate her birthday and another year of life. This year was a big one, the big 1-0, double digits, a whole decade, etc..! She was looking forward to turning 10 for a long time, I on the other hand think it sounds really old and it came really fast (insert crying face)! My baby girl is 10, and she is the sweetest and most beautiful 10 year old I ever did see! Happy 10th birthday, Brennan Grace, I'm so thankful I get to be your mom! xo

Baby Boy on the Way! ~ Pasadena Family Photographer/Travel ~ Waco, TX/Mini Session

I adore this family, they've been behind my lens many times over the years and its been my honor to capture so many important moments for them! To say I'm heartbroken I won't be in Waco to capture this sweet newborn is an understatement but I look forward to meeting him in the fall! Love ya'll! xo IMG_0168x.jpgwebIMG_0185xweb

Welcome Mayer ~ Waco Newborn Photographer

My dear friend Kristen welcomed her third baby boy (a month early!) in late December! I had her bring him to "the studio" (aka: my guest bedroom) so I could snap a few photos of all his yummy newborn-ness. Isn't he such a sweet pea??! You'll be seeing more of him on here soon as I'll be capturing the whole family all together  ~ can't wait! Welcome to the world sweet Mayer Reece! xo IMG_7607x.jpgweb

Madison & Jackson ~ Waco Child Photographer

I truly had so.much.fun photographing these two! Madison loves having her picture taken and my camera loved her! She's clearly a beauty but she also is just a natural in front of the lens. Little Jackson has a sweet relationship with his older sister which was so fun to capture, and check out his style! This kid was rockin' it! I hope next time I can convince mom and dad to get in there too! :) Thanks guys, so fun! xo IMG_9589x.jpgweb

She's Getting Older... ~ Waco Family Photographer/Mini Session

Happy New Year, everyone! It was a lovely break from work for the past couple weeks and now I've got some blogging to catch up on! A HUGE thank you to each of my clients who trusted me to capture their families/their love/their stories in 2013, it is such an honor to do what I do and I don't take your faith in me lightly! Here's to an even better 2014! Now, for my first blog post of 2014! I love that this family is so great about capturing milestones in their daughters life! This is the third time I've photographed this sweet crew and I love watching little Alexis grow up! She's such a sweet pea (and has her daddy wrapped around her little finger :). Thank you for choosing me to tell your sweet family's story, guys, so fun watching you all grow together! Until next time! xo

And Louise Makes It Complete ~ Waco Family Photographer/Holiday Mini Session

My sweet friends welcomed Louise to their family earlier this year, making their family of 4 complete! Look at this beauty, such a perfect addition, no?! I am SO sad this crew is heading to Austin to make a new home but as I told them, the more excuses I have to get to Austin the better! And yes, yes I will invite myself over! :) Come back often to visit, Hogans -Waco will miss you!!!! xo IMG_7563x.jpgweb

B turns 7! ~ {Personal Work} ~ Waco Child Photographer

My daughter turned 7 years old on November 2nd, is it me or does that sound like a big girl?! Sniff! Each year I do a birthday shoot with my girl to commemorate her turning a year older, this year we incorporated her birthday cowgirl boots into her shoot and I loved how it turned out! There are a couple photos that scream "B" to me as she is right now and I want to remember her just this way as she ushers in her 7th year of life. Seven...wow. I love you baby girl, so thankful I get to be your mommy. xo IMG_8398x.jpgwebIMG_8402xweb

Second Time Around ~ Waco Family Photographer/Mini Session

I photographed this sweet family a while back in their lovely home, this time we met up in Waco for a quick 20 minutes to capture their sweet girl as she is turning 1! How quickly time goes by! Mini sessions are a great idea if you'd had a full session not too too long ago and you just need a few updated shots, shoot me an email if you're interested in a quick mini! xo 029xweb034xxweb

A Cozy Morning at Home ~ Waco Family Photographer

I know, I know, for those of you who have been following my blog for a while I sound like a broken record. But I'll say it again, I LOVE photographing a family in their home! When Molly called me and we talked about her session, I got super excited when she mentioned she wanted a casual shoot at home -just my style. I was thrilled to walk in and see that they had these gorgeous windows in their living room that let in the most beautiful light! Little Keaton smiled all morning, and Lila brought the little girl sass that is pretty darn cute on a 2 year old. Here are some of my favorites from our time together. xo 022xweb

B is SIX! ~ Waco Child Photographer

My sweet girl turned SIX in November! I still can hardly believe it! Every year I do a birthday shoot with her, this year I'm a little late on posting it but this was done almost a month ago! Better late than never, right?! I asked B what her favorite color was, she said pink and purple, so 6 pink and purple balloons it was! Here are my favorites from her 6th birthday shoot! xo 018xweb026xweb

This image makes me laugh b/c B is standing perfectly behind these balloons and you wouldn't even know she was there!
