Just a quick post to share this precious face on this beautiful Labor Day. Miss Maddie is truly as happy and she looks. Full of baby talk and giggles, this blue-eyed darling is one sweet treat! Enjoy.

The Bailey Kids

I got to meet Jaxon & Harper Bailey a couple months back when their sweet mama, Linzi, wanted their precious pictures made. Linzi is sisters to one of my favorite child-hood friends, Kandis (Alderman) Brothers & I was so excited to reconnect with their family! Our moms keep in touch better than any of us. They're in a "mom's of kids from 2004" Bunko group, or something of that nature. The rules are, you have to come but you don't have to play. Rumor has it they spend most of their time catching up on all us kids & sipping tasty beverages instead. Now knowing about the festivities, I mentioned the idea of a 'bring your kid to Bunko day" since most of us are the reasons our moms know each other anyway! We'll see if that happens; sadly, I think they manage just fine without us. Taking pictures of Linzi's growing family was so fun. Her kids are so well behaved, & that Jaxon is going to be a little heart breaker!! Enjoy.

Becton & Brynlee

As I've mentioned before, and will probably mention a million more times throughout my blog posts here, the thing I love most about photography is keeping in touch with old friends.... Well, old friends of my sister's from high school that I like to call my own :)  Back when Kacee Taylor Hogg and my sister Ginger were in high school I thought I was one of "the girls". Even though I was clearly not (and merely an awkward 6th grader at the time) they let me play along. I would follow "the girls" everywhere.... well everywhere my curfew would permit... They carted me to the movies, to the mall, and anywhere else I could bug them enough to take me. Having an older sister with cool friends during my awkward-turtle years definitely had its perks. Now that we're all grown up (and I've hopefully left my awkward-turtle back at Junior High) Kacee hired me to take her kiddos pictures. I was SO thrilled! My mom had taken her oldest, Brynlee's pictures in Houston a few years back and I got to play assistant. This time around I was the main shooter and my sweet photog mom was the assistant! Becton and Brynlee were full of fun (and full of energy) during our shoot. Brynlee loved the camera and was my little model for the day. Becton on the other hand had his heart set on getting into the things that weren't so camera friendly. We had a yard full of the sweetest antique tractors and, as boys will be boys, Becton jumped on the orange Kabota!! We certainly made it work and even got to play with Brynlee's palomino horse at the end. It was a fun shoot and a great chance to catch up with Kacee!
