Titcomb Family : : “Fall” Begins!

I met the Titcombs when their older daughter started taking piano lessons from me. She had been coming a few months when we discovered we had already met once at church! I was leading worship at the church Corey’s parents attend and I didn’t even realize they were the same people! Haha, small world. ☺️
I love the location of this photoshoot – the sun is setting perfectly between the trees. Little Sister was not having the posed pictures but after we got her dancing and chasing Big Sister, she warmed up to the idea of giving me a few smiles.

Hudson Craig : : One Year Old

A couple of months ago Natalie had me do a mini session of her 3 kids that turned out to be one of my favorites of all time. So, of course, I was ecstatic when she asked me to take Hudson’s one year pictures.

He is one of the happiest babies ever. I guess that what happens with number 3, they just go with the flow. We lugged him all over the park and he never fussed once!

Happy birthday, Hudson Craig!

Luka Antonio : : Two Years Old

I have always liked photography -even when I was a kid I would set up my camera on a tripod and try to take 1998 style selfies. But I never had much inspiration….until this guy was born.
I can’t believe he’s already turning two. I’ll blink and it will be 22…..and he will still be living at home because he’ll never leave me. (just kidding, I’m kicking that kid out on graduation day)

Bluebonnets 2016

I don’t know why, but I love being a Texan. I’m so not a typical one. I live in the suburbs of a big city, I don’t have an accent, I don’t ride horses or raise any sort of farm animal (unless my dog counts).

But I have serious State Pride.

One of the landmarks of a Texas spring is the arrival of the bluebonnets. It’s basically a right of passage for every Texan kid to be stuck in the middle of a dirty patch of flowers and forced to smile by mom, dad, or for me it was my grandpa. So, welcome to Texas, kids!!

Bluebonnets are the Texas state flower. Legend says they’re illegal to pick, but there’s been some rumors that it’s not true. Either way, they last like 3 weeks all year, so save them for the rest of us okay?! (I’m talking to you, people I saw with a bouquet in your hands…) They’re pretty much just a wildflower, and they bloom typically on the sides of highways. You can find amazing fields of them farther into the Hill Country, but there’s some good patches in Houston too.

Last year, the bluebonnets were my first “real” photoshoot and it’s what inspired me to officially launch Little Egg Photography. So, this year the bluebonnet minis felt like a real milestone to me. Thanks to everyone who signed up and participated! Here’s a few of my favorites!

If you missed it this time, mark your calendars for March 2017- it’ll be here before you know it.

Wardrobe Choices 

Have you ever wondered if your outfit choices really make a difference in the end result of your family photo session?

Well, not to put any added pressure, buuuut they totally do! Here are a few tips for you to remember when coordinating your family’s outfit.
1. Don’t be afraid to not be “matchey matchey”. If the colors are all in the same general color family, they will look great. This family is in all different colors but the session took place in the summer (see number 3 for more on that) and even thought it’s a lot going on, it works for them since they are all bright and springy colors! If you want to perfect this look, make sure someone is toned down a bit, like the mom in this family.

2. Avoid too many patterns on too many people. A good rule of thumb is to throw pattern on only one or two people in the group. Make Dad stand out a bit more by putting him in a plaid or checkered shirt while Mom or kids bring in the splash of color.

3. Remember your season and surroundings. If you have a gorgeous location picked out (IE spring flowers or fall trees), don’t wear anything too bright to distract from it. Color is still okay but keep it muted! This family’s session took place at the height of fall. While they still have a color theme going on, it’s a nice dark purple, which is muted and seasonally appropriate.

4. Rules are meant to be broken! These are great guidelines but don’t be afraid to mix it up if you think it looks good! They’re your pictures and you should feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. These kids are breaking rule number 2 but they look amazing!

Good luck and happy shopping!

Ruby Tru : : Newborn Lifestyle

Funny story.

In high school I played on the worship team at church with this guy named Jonathan. We weren’t super close but we usually got along because he put up with me the most out of his two other brothers. (I was kind of obnoxious in high school) Anyway, he later started going to another church and we didn’t really keep in touch other than just having mutual friends.

That is, until I married his cousin. Now he’s stuck with me! haha, jokes on you Jonathan!

A few years ago he found his soul mate, Abbey. I’m serious. These two are ridiculous how perfect they are for each other. They just had their second baby, a little girl named Ruby Tru. I was so happy to take her newborn pictures recently and, you guys, this family is like perfection.

Sibling Mini Session

Remember that time I gave away a mini session on Facebook? Yeah, many months later Natalie and I were finally able to sync our schedules and she got to redeem that session as a sweet sibling mini session!
These kids were a lot of fun to photograph. I wish I could have fully captured the energy that Natalie’s little three year old had! I have never seen a more energetic little boy. He literally ran the entire 30 minutes of our session.

I look forward to working with this sweet family again!

Micah Shobi : : Newborn Lifestyle

I always giggle a little bit when I talk about “lifestyle” newborn shoots… In reality, the lifestyle of a newborn is milk stains on mom’s clothes, dark circles around mom and dad’s eyes, dirty onesies everywhere, poopy diapers spilling out of the diaper genie, and screaming at the older sibling not to poke the baby’s eye AGAIN.

But we try to block those memories and remember only the sweet snuggles, big sibling’s kisses, and the few times mom found a chance to take a shower.

 

I so enjoyed getting some {fake} lifestyle photos of Mr. Micah last week. His family is so special to mine and we’re ecstatic to have him join our baby family clan.
