Back-To-School Photo Session 2017

What a summer it’s been for these girls. From being flower girls in their uncle’s wedding, to celebrating their grandfather’s 79th birthday in Alaska and Canada, to two Florida trips in one summer, and art, gymnastics and bible camp in between, I’m amazed we found the energy and time for our annual back-to-school photo session. It happened, in large part, due to an awesome friend who happened to have all these vintage props and who willingly assisted me in pulling it off on short notice.  One more sleep until first day of 2nd grade and Pre-K 4. I just adore these photos of the Malkani and Lee girls!

Seaside Beach Photographers | Tankersley Family

As we approach the end of summer, we’re trading in our bear feet for bare feet. From Alaska, to Canada, to Florida, our three-week escape is drawing to a close with family and extended relatives in Florida. We’re meeting new babies, visiting great-grandmothers, catching up with old high school friends, lounging around in our pajamas and playing board games with cousins well past bedtime. I wish we could bottle up these precious moments forever. Seaside Beach Photographers

Speaking of family, I had the great pleasure of meeting the Tankersley family. They are the sweetest and they also enjoy and appreciate family quality time as much as we do. Their destination family session was everything it should be – all love and all smiles start to end! Despite the strong winds, threat of rain, a toddler falling asleep on the walk over to the beach, and a sunset session dangerously close to an infant’s bedtime, everyone rallied for the occasion. I must have used every trick in my photographer’s hat including my sub-par drawing (and secret un-talent) skills. I left the session feeling so grateful for the opportunity to meet this lovely family and for the privilege to be a part of their tradition.

Hope you enjoy every ounce of this pretty and be sure to check back for more. Because we’re on beach time, I’ll have to postpone my Fall mini session announcement until next week. Stay tuned and send a note to be added to the list.

Tutu Cute

I am coming off of a week and a half in Alaska and almost a week in Vancouver. You can say I’m experiencing record-breaking summer weather. So much, that I’m already thinking about my Fall sessions, including what to wear (Tutu Du Monde, anyone?), Fall fashion, and my upcoming mini session announcement. This session couldn’t have come at a better time; it’s pretty, chic and leaves you wanting every single piece from the latest Tutu Du Monde line.

Cake Smash Cuteness in Austin

Not all cake smash sessions are created equal. Mia’s, I would say, was down right fabulous and the payoff was major. From her amazing outfits, to the darling cake, gorgeous props, and the perfect photography setting, Mia nailed it. Any child photography session that includes a lake and a destroyed cake is fine in my book. These modern birthday portraits are about as cute as it gets.
