My Lil’ Scholar : Round Rock Child Photographer

My oldest son started kindergarten this year, and it’s been pretty quiet at home with just the younger two. I am amazed at how quickly he has learned how to write and read. Less than 2 months ago, he couldn’t write his name, and now he is writing sentences! 🙂 So what was his first sentence he wrote? “I lik to go to Chuke Chez and pla gams” TRANSLATION: I like to go to Chuckie Cheese and play games. I’m just so proud of him. Here are a few silly portraits of my little scholar!

Thank you for the lovely pages and your photography work is outstanding!


I am a memeber of the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep organization, and I assisted in my first session last night at Dell’s Children’s Hospital; a very precious little girl named Jade. I want to send a special thank you out to Shannon Martinez, the photographer who performed the session. She was so wonderful and patient with me. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jade’s family.

I also wanted to let my clients know that I will be on-call for NILMDTS the following weeks:

Oct 19th – 25th

Nov 23rd – 29th

So if you need to get a hold of me and I dont return your call/email immediately during these particular weeks, know that might be in a NILMDTS session. Please know that I will get back to as soon as I can.

We all have to do our part – REGISTER & VOTE

My good friend and fellow photographer Tiffany Hix posted these videos on her blog, and I was so moved by them, I wanted to share them here too.    In the state that the world and the United States is in today, how can you not vote?

The first video is funny, but has a good message!    Lots of famous faces!

This second video gave me chills.  

Broken Washing Machine + 3 kids + Laundry Mat = Fun?

So our washing machine has been out for two weeks now.  I know there are people out there that can sympathize with this… a family of 5 makes a lot of dirty clothes, in my calculations, one load of laundry a day (if not more).      So what’s a girl to do when faced with the joys (insert sarcasm) of hauling loads and loads of dirty clothes, 3 kids, and one less enthused husband to the  local laundry mat?  Turn it into a photog day, of course!   It was a great way to pass the time in between loads.    So 2 1/2 hours later, and I dont know how many loads of laundry later, this is what I came up with!

Wow…you got me wanting to take a trip to the laundry mat. These are awesome Rae. Love your processing, it’s absolutely perfect. You even managed to make a gunky hair ball look amazing. Fantastic. Hope your laundry situation gets resolved soon! 🙂

Ryan - October 10, 2008 - 5:33 pm

Wow! Those are great! I hope the washing machine is fixed soon!

shannon martinez - October 20, 2008 - 7:25 pm
