Longview Texas Lifestyle photographer: Quiet in the chaos

Wednesday afternoons in my family are nuts! As soon as the kids are free from school we are running – homework, swim practice, hopefully throw some sort of dinner in our faces, then off to scouts. Tonight as I attempted to make a somewhat healthy quick dinner (a souped-up caesar salad) I thought I’d take a minute to document a quiet moment in my kitchen. The kids were playing nicely and life had calmed. I welcomed this moment amidst the crazy that had been our afternoon. — Bonus points if you can spy a half eaten banana, my phone, and a lingering bit of Christmas.

Longview Texas Family Photographer: Christmas Mini Sessions

I did several Christmas mini sessions over the Holidays – some took place at a local Christmas tree farm and some were at a really cool old campground.  I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people and seeing seasoned clients again.

Longview Texas Lifestyle Photographer: These 3 kids of mine

Very rarely am I able to get all 3 kiddos in the same frame. I can usually manage to get them by themselves pretty easily. Sometimes it does depend on their mood or how sneaky I can be with my camera. For these 3 pictures, taken on 3 different days, I had them one on one and we were just chatting and cutting up. And I really love them – the kids and the pictures.
