You'll recognize Miss Kate here, sqeezed in the middle. (a Kate sandwhich) I posted her Birthday Party here a few days ago. Today I photographed her, Dalton, her brother and her 3 cousins that were in town for the Texas Tech and UT game. ALL BLONDE! And all utterly adorable! So much laughter, so many giggles! Just load of fun!
Grandma needed a good shot with all of the them happy and smiling. I think I got it!

Newborns are the best! They cross their eyes and smile, they make funny noises, they are such new little creatures, everything about them just makes you happy. They are joy, hope and faith in humantiy, all rolled into one cute little package.
This is Adleigh. I photographed her mom and dad a few weeks back when she was just a belly. I had the chance to spend some quick time with her yesterday and just enjoy her utter cuteness!

I've been friends with Julie for more years than I care to count. She's in this frist picture with her husband Heath. We used to have a Bunco group in Slaton that we all met and fast became friends. They had 2 boys, Price and Ben, when we first met, and now as of 2006 they have 5 all together! Drew, Rex and the newest member, Meghan.
I wanted to photograph them each in their rooms and surroundings and I'm so glad I did. I met the bunny that Meghan sleeps with, and the cowboy chaps that Drew loves to wear. I saw the animals that Price has hunted and hung on his wall, and I heard all about the football practise that Ben was sacrificing for my efforts. It was a great session!
Thanks, McGehee Family!

This is Kate. She just turned 4. She knows how to do the hokey pokey, talk on a cell phone and how to apply lipstick. She's quite the diva. So, how appropriate is it to have your 4th birthday at Dressin' Divas? It was too cute and too fun and the clothes? Way too small for real women, but hey, I have a camera and nothing but time.
The store had some really cool funky walls to use as backdrops and some cool hanging things to play with while the girls were getting made up.
the diva's in the dressing room admiring everyone's choice of colors. The feathers were a big hit!
Summer has a ton of hair so this was a BIG do for her! She didn't really think twice about it, and when I noticed her (instead of all the clothes) I realize her clean hair was teased HUGE and had green paint in it! AND she's got a 2 PM Basketball Game. Oh, well, it washed out. And a Diva can play ball, right?
Kate has always, always had a way about her. She's mature beyond her years in those eyes and such a precious spirit. I love just hanging around her and waiting for what happens.
Happy Birthday, Miss Kate. I'm so glad I could be there, and I'm so glad we are friends.

remember kyle and amanda from the fair a couple of weeks ago? They are getting married december 9th and we needed some "traditional esession" photographs for tradtional kind of stuff. The paper, grandma's desk, etc. Don't you just love the "glad to meet you" handshake above. I was laughing so hard when Kyle mentioned it. I was so concerned about other things, I didn't even notice it. And I was the one that should have! Don't worry, we got some other, good ones in there. And just because I can never take only traditional style photos, we played a bit. And these two are just the couple for that!
I love this chair! Kyle? Amanda? I know you read this blog, so here it is, in WRITING...
if you ever sale this chair, PLEASE call me! It's way cool. And it works great for quickies in the street. Portraits that is! HA!
And my personal favs from our session. Not sure why? I just think they are so cute and very reflective of the two of you! Thanks so much!
