Happy Thanksgiving.  I had a great time with my friends Nathan and Mary Ann over the weekend.  Hanging out with them always puts me in a good mood!  Mary Ann is due with their first baby in February so they needed Christmas card photos of their last kidless year.  They are going to be such awesome parents.  I love that these pictures show how sweet they are to each other. 

I can’t wait to meet their little one in just a couple of months!


You can’t have a family picture without a cute dog in it.

I want a dog just so that I can take family photos with it.  Maybe I can borrow someone’s dog for my own Christmas card pictures.  Don’t get me wrong – I love my pets.  It’s just that my cats don’t really aspire to be models.

Riley has a touch of canine ADHD.  But such a cutie!

If their parents ever need a break, I would happily take both of these cutie pies home with me!


The Halls (including Buddy the Christmas Elf)

Buddy is so cute.  But as his daddy says, “You have to embrace the fatness.”  I tried my best to use only slimming poses for sweet Buddy who was exhausted by his modeling gig.

Family Beach Photos

Family beach photos are very popular in our area.  Every Gulf Coast family has their ubiquitous white shirt & jeans on the dunes photo.  Personally, I get a little bored with these because of their popularity but every photographer around here gets asked to do these shots. 

I’ve tried to keep my beach photos a little more interesting this summer, with different times of day, less uniformity in the poses and clothing, and more individual shots.  When it comes right down to it, it’s hard to complain about any job that takes you to the beach, right?
