a hole in one | mckinney, tx photographer

This session was definitely a first for me and it was so much fun! Baker’s party theme is a “hole in one” and I was so excited when his mom suggested the country club for our session. I loved hanging out with this family again and finally getting to meet Baker for the first time. He is the cutest, squishiest little guy with the best hair. Happy 1st Birthday, Baker!

The bond between these sisters was so much fun to watch.  Big sister has so much personality and little sister is trying to catch up!  You can tell just how much they admired each other, which in turn made their parents very happy!  Here are some favorites from our session in downtown McKinney.

blumenfeld-5-copy A lot has changed since the first time I met this family about a year ago.  Their son was very shy in front of the camera, but this year, you can tell he’d been practicing his “cheese.” They recently said goodbye to one of their fur babies, and Mama is brewing a new addition in her cute little baby bump!  I had a great morning with them and am looking forward to see how their family portrait will look like a year from now!  Here are some of my favorites from their session.blumenfeld-17-copyblumenfeld-21-copyblumenfeld-28-copyblumenfeld-31-copyblumenfeld-36-copyblumenfeld-40-copyblumenfeld-47-copyblumenfeld-53-copyblumenfeld-65-copyblumenfeld-70-copyblumenfeld-76-copyblumenfeld-82-copyblumenfeld-88-copyblumenfeld-92-copyblumenfeld-99-copyblumenfeld-107-copyblumenfeld-113-copyblumenfeld-116-copyblumenfeld-120-copy
