The Hammock

The Hammock is one of my most inspirational places. All you need is two friendly trees.


You have to try it out ūüôā

Bluebonnets are in full bloom

Taking pictures of the kids in the bluebonnets has become a yearly event for us.

When the bluebonnets bloom it is still cool and pleasant in Texas. ¬†Being outside is a real joy. ¬†It looks like summer, it feels like summer but it’s not hot like summer.

The kids really like it, too.

Bluebonnets in Texas


Every year we look for some nice batches of bluebonnets.  Unfortunately the nicest ones are always along the highways (not great for kids to play).

Great patches from last year might have been mowed down too soon so they could not reseed themselves ūüôā ¬†Along the highways they make it a point not to mow until the wildflowers have reseeded themselves, hence the great patches every year.

At any rate – thanks to our friends on facebook word spreads quickly on where to go.

About to start


Now you just have to get there before everyone else tramples them down.

Oh – you now just have to get the kids to cooperate – that is a whole other story ūüôā

Their usual selves



Celebrating 10 Years of Marriage with the Smithey Family

We call it a¬†privilege¬†when good friends call on us to take their pictures. ¬†This summer we started talking about doing a session with just the Mr. & Mrs. for their 10 year¬†anniversary. ¬†Somehow time just gets away and when we found out that Mr. Smithey was going to be deploying we quickly worked it in. ¬†Then the day before a text comes…”Can we take some pictures with the kids, too.” ¬†Of course!!! ¬†What an awesome family to take photos of! ¬†Thanks, Smithey Family for a morning of FUN!


Photo Session with the Kids

Here are a few pics from a recent photo session Рlove the simple white background, and their gorgeous smiles of course.  The session was for the newborn but we took the opportunity to take a few shots of the other kids as well.


And the other brother.
