Senior Blue Bonnets

I've been dying to share these ones! Kenzi is stunning and the blue bonnets were a perfect choice for spring senior photos! I had such a blast getting to know Kenzi and I look forward to working with her on a fall session.  It's not too early to start, class of 2018! Senior year is stressful enough so go ahead and get a jump start on those senior photos. ;-)

What about class of 2017? It's not too late, either! There's only 8 weeks left of school (for me at least,) so be sure and book fast.

And here are some of my favorites from Kenzi's session!

PS - Love the blue bonnets? Be sure to follow me on instagram (@skipandleap). There might be a mini session coming VERY soon!

Ransom Family Photos

Some sweet friends of ours moved away this December. We are so sad to see them go, but wish them the best of everything with their new journey. Before they left, they wanted to get some family photos "Texas Style." So off we went to a local park right when the weather decided to start thinking cold.

I had such a blast taking their photos! Guys, seriously. One of the things clients don't get to see is the editing process, which you can look up great articles on the internet all about that. For me, that process is a chance where I get to relive the photo session. Yes, it takes time as I make necessary photo edits and go through the "cutting room floor" process, but I LOVE it. For the Ransoms, I think it was one of my favorite from the year! I kept crackin' up over their youngest's spunky personality! That is my absolute favorite thing to capture!

Thanks again, Ransoms, for letting us goof off in some cold Texas weather before you left. We miss you!

French Quilt

Quilting has taken the back burner for about a year or so now. What got me back into it was when my sister-in-law asked me to make one for my niece. She picked out the main fabric, then I went to the store to find some complimentary colors. About halfway through quilting this quilt, the color scheme finally connected to my memories of the Fisher Price Doll Houses my sisters and I would spends hours playing with! I give this quilt the nickname, Fisher Price "French" quilt.

It's not perfect, but I will tell you I managed to quilt this twin size beauty in one week before Christmas. Yeah. I didn't get much of anything else done, but I still love how it turned out!

Petersen family

November is the time for family pictures and it was spot on to go back to Flower Mound for this session. The colors were so vivid!! The place was also  nothing but photographers and families and seniors - so you know it's good! Thanks, Jenna! You have such a beautiful family!

Endres family

I get little kid excited when I find out that someone wants me to take their photos. What a blessing to take the photos of this sweet adorable family! Little Cora has the prettiest blue eyes. It was fun watching her personality come out during the session as she grew more comfortable playing. The location was also dreamy with all the golden hour sunset we were covered in. Thank you Endres family for suggesting downtown Aubrey!

Barber family

I am so excited that I got to start off this month photographing my good friends, the Barbers. I did their first family photo three years ago with their camera. Not only has their family grown since then, but they continue to be great examples. I am always amazed that no matter, Shiloh can always find the positive. Thanks for all the fun and laughs!

Miss Hadley

If you ever have trouble figuring out what to get someone for a gift, why not gift them a photography session? That's exactly what Miss Hadley's Grandma did!

It was such a blast taking photos of this sweet girl! With a two year old and an hour session, you know a good chunk is going to be spent running and playing. It was AMAZING! Kids are kids, and I love capturing that! Hadley was curious, fearless, and full of some personality. Thanks for letting me play! And thanks for giving the gift of a photography session!
