John ~ Round Rock Senior Class of 2015

I have really enjoyed photographing this family over the past few years.  I first photographed John’s oldest brother back in 2010 for his senior photos.  I then followed up a couple of years later, and photographed his other brother back in 2013 for his senior session.  So imagine my surprise when mom called me up and said that it was time for John’s senior portrait session.  I just couldn’t believe that her “baby”  was old enough to be a high school senior already.    Makes me reflect on my own family and how I know that some day, this will be my situation.  Time just flies by way to fast….

The Rain Couldn’t Stop Us

This is one of those sessions that was on the verge of having to be rescheduled due to the rain, but lucky for us, about 10 minutes into our session, the drizzle went away and we were able to have some fun. Recognize this little guy? He and his parents come all the way from the Houston area to see me and I have loved watching him grow.   Last year he wasn’t even crawling yet, and this year, well… you can tell that he is a RUNNER! Not much could stop him from exploring the entire park that day.   I thought for sure that my wooden rocking horse would be a hit with him and slow him down enough to get some sitting still shots, but it took Mom getting on the pony to show him that it was a lot of fun!     I am already looking forward to our next session!

Springtime Mini Session Details

Spring Minis 2015Dates: March 28th and April 4th, morning times and late afternoon times available

Location: TBA. I want to get a little further into the month of March before I can determine which location will have the most green foliage and, crossing fingers, some wildflowers. If you are anything like me, you are tired of this crazy cold weather. I am so ready for Spring and some warmer temperatures.

Details: Session and Digitals together will cost $350 + tax. 30 minute session, 10 digital photo files with print release Session is good for up to 4 people This session is ideal for siblings, a milestone birthday session, Mommy & me (or Daddy & me) type session, a mini-maternity session, or possibly a high school senior session.   If it has been a while since you’ve had update portraits, this is the perfect opportunity. Normally digitals alone are more than the $350 cost of this package deal. I hope to hear from you soon!
