How do we style a Valentine's themed photo shoot? 

Well...

Last Sunday we were laying around the house being lazy. Like you should on a Sunday afternoon.  I was snuggled in my bed checking for lint under my eyelids when Jason snatched the covers off the bed and said, "It's perfect outside, lets go do a shoot."  Grumble, grumble, glare, glare....  Oh fine. We had been talking about a Valentine's Day themed shoot, so why not?  Knowing we needed to hurry to beat the sunset, I went flying through the house trying to put together outfits in my head, while formulating a tempting bribe to lure my girls out of their pjs and away from their Barbies. {Yes, they were still in their pjs at 4:00. I did say "LAZY Sunday". Yes, I also said "bribe". Don't judge me. Ya gotta find their currency. I'm a realist.} Pink and white. Hair brushed. Shoes. Blanket. Activity. Done and done.  We were off to Old Town Spring. Jason wanted to find a field that matched their hair, and Old Town Spring, TX is the place for golden fields.

And that is that. No muss, no fuss. I like to keep it simple. It's beautiful out, Houstonites. No reason to put off photos 'til spring.

Oh, Netherlands. How I miss you.    

One day, before I became a family photographer in the Spring TX area, we decided to leave our little life in The U.S.ofA. and head out on an overseas adventure to the Netherlands.

 

{This little story will include both DSLR pictures and Instagram snaps.}

 

On the way we stopped off in Iceland.  The Blue Lagoon is super cool. {All the square photos are Instagram photos. You can click on them to see my whole Instagram feed.}

Our time in Assen, The Netherlands was lovely.  If you have a chance to visit, DO IT!  Don't just do Amsterdam. The country side is unbelievable. We lived in a little town about 2 hours from Amsterdam. While it required that I do some adapting {I became a wiz donut and Mexican food chef, and had to get comfortable on a bike.}, it was such a lovely place to live. I was unable to really pick a very satisfying array of pictures to represent our two years.  Here's a sampling. {Check out my Instagram feed for a more comprehensive look.}

I got to take some glorious personal photos with my big-girl camera (Canon 7D):

Seriously, I can't say enough about our time there.  My only regret was that I wasn't able to do much "work" as a photographer.  I did a few shoots, though.  I'll be featuring those in the next few blog posts.

This past long weekend I finaly got to do a photo session after taking some time off to concentrate on moving and school.  I was so excited to put on my photographer hat again.  How lucky that I ended up with two of the sweetest sisters, Ally and Mady R.

Mady was the perfect big sister (and quite the posing Diva).

I was so impressed with just how NICE she was to little Ally.

Ally was just a doll. 

 

 

She loved to sing and dance.

I particularly loved her "shake-it" moves at the end of our session.  Too freakin' cute.
