fallsigney-8-copyI was so happy to see this family again for their fall session.  This time, we tried something different and picked Bishop Arts District in Dallas.  The busy streets definitely kept the kids interested and created a really pretty backdrop for this stylish family.  Love all the colors that they chose!  Here are my favorites from their session.  fallsigney-1-copyfallsigney-4-copyfallsigney-9-copyfallsigney-10-copyfallsigney-21-copyfallsigney-20-copyfallsigney-24-copyfallsigney-28-copyfallsigney-31-copyfallsigney-32-copyfallsigney-35-copyfallsigney-42-copyfallsigney-47-copyfallsigney-46-copyfallsigney-48-copyfallsigney-53-copyThanks again, Signey family, for meeting me and for trying something new!

Ms. Violet loved the camera and was so ready to strike a pose.  She even got her nails done – watch out, fashion world!  Liam wasn’t feeling it that day but at least he looked very handsome in his cardigan!  Here are some of my favorites from their session.childs-6-copychilds-11-copychilds-12-copychilds-15-copychilds-19-copychilds-26-copychilds-30-copychilds-21-copychilds-33-copychilds-42-copychilds-45-copychilds-44-2-copychilds-50-copychilds-60-copychilds-63-copychilds-65-copychilds-67-copy

amaratana-23-copyI loved meeting these new parents. It brought me back to those sleepless nights and running on little fuel. But all of that goes away as soon as they see their sweet baby boy. They’re still trying to figure things out, but really, aren’t we all?  Here are just a few of their first pictures as a family of three. amaratana-8-copyamaratana-15-copyamaratana-22-copyamaratana-25-copyamaratana-36-copyamaratana-28-copyamaratana-35-copyamaratana-31-copyamaratana-44-copyamaratana-69-copyamaratana-71-copyamaratana-62-copyamaratana-75-copyamaratana-82-copyamaratana-96-copyamaratana-92-copyamaratana-107-copyamaratana-110-copyamaratana-111-copyamaratana-123-copy
