One of the best feelings in the world is to be remembered by a kid. They are so honest and genuine, so to me, that spark of recognition is very special. I got to take photos for Collin and Elliot again, along with their parents and grandparents. Collin looked at my funny for a minute, then said, "Hey, didn't we see you at that one place?" Ha ha! What a sweet boy!

 

This lovely family chose downtown McKinney for their holiday portraits. This was my first time shooting there and I was amazed! It was beautiful! I need to go back for shopping and dining now! We fortunately timed our shoot with their Christmas festival, so there were Christmas decorations everywhere for the boys to enjoy, which made for some pretty adorable photos!

 

I can't wait to shoot in downtown McKinney again. There are so many old walls, alleys, shopfronts and sidewalks that are just begging to be the background in a photo!

Wow, this must have been the windiest day of the year! But these guys were troopers, posed through it and look amazing! Even the props managed to cooperate (I ended up having to Photoshop out a lot of tape, though! haha!) But no matter the weather, you can can see the love this family has for each other just shining through! What an inspiration!!

Christmas mini sessions! I loved taking pictures for these two sweet families. And to be honest, I really enjoyed getting a jump on the Christmas season! Usually I'm a stickler for no Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but I make an exception for Christmas photos! How nice for these families to have their gifts and cards done before the Christmas rush! I only wish I was that organized!

I love capturing these candid moments. They make great portraits!
Snow is always possible in the Dallas area for a photographer with skills. Love this snow overlay for a Christmas mini-session.
