Today we celebrated Maddie's, I mean, Wonder Woman's, belated birthday. Maddie's birthday is at the beginning of December, but since Natalie, her mother/my sister is in fully Nutcracker swing at that point, we always throw her party in January. Party pics to come, but until then enjoy our Wonder Woman themed photo shoot from Galveston. Proud of this sweet little niece of mine. The last four years have been filled with so much joy with Maddie in our lives. She really is a supergirl in our book! Happy Birthday, Maddie!

Anna popped out of her car on the day of her session, skipped over to me and gave me a big hug. I could tell she was just as excited as I was! Her mom approached me during the summer about getting portraits done of Anna to celebrate her first year studying dance at Feijoo Ballet School (her teacher is my sister, Natalie!) We had a few delays when it came to scheduling but the day finally came and were were all so excited for it!
Sophie is one of my lovely students at Feijoo Ballet School. After her mom saw my photography work for Black Box on Broadway this past Fall she approached me about taking portraits of sweet Sophie. The photos would be used for their annual Christmas card as well as in promotion for their family business, Gay Family Auto in Dickinson. Photograph an adorable child AND have my photos on a billboard? Sounds great to me!
"Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see."
-It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Taking my two nieces recently to the pumpkin patch was quite a fun way to celebrate the fall season. We went to the same little patch I would visit when I was a little kid and I loved returning their once again with them. We decided to make a little photoshoot out of it since Grandma had bought them the cutest pumpkin dresses!

I have the fortune of living near my two nieces that live here in Houston but my five other nieces and nephews live off in Arizona and I only get to see them about once a year. Recently the Arizona nieces and nephews came to town and getting some cousins portraits in was a must!
