Vol VI Spring in Texas

{Dallas Child Photographer | Flower Mound Child Photographer | Texas Children Photography}

As I continue along in my little journey documenting a year of personal photographs I took over the year 2014, we are finally getting into happy sunshine-y outdoor pictures.  I had finally moved to Texas, after a whopper of a Winter in Michigan, and after being welcomed into Texas with a huge March ice storm (haha, not kidding), a nice, timely Spring emerged.  Being a new child photographer to Dallas, the children I photographed in those early days were, of course, my own children most of the time.  We had fun, exploring little pockets of Flower Mound and patches of pretty light and gorgeous flowers and warm air, so unusual in March when we were so used to waiting until May for that kind of weather.:-)

As soon as bluebonnets started sprouting, before they reached their peak I was bolting from my house and photographing my daughter on sides of roads and wherever else I could find those first glimpses of that beautiful Texas flower.

Lori Pickens - Love this! Did you have a bubble machine going too or is all of that from the bubble bath soap?

Vol IV – Ice and Cupcakes

{ Flower Mound Child Photographer | Dallas Children Photographer | Dallas Child Photography }

So, I timed my move to Texas “just right” and managed to stick around in Michigan long enough to enjoy one of the coldest and snowiest Winters on record in the last 100 or so years. When I say cold, I mean COLD.  Too cold to go sledding, too cold to go to school many days, too cold to venture outside without your face and all your extremities feeling extreme pain.

On one of these very frigid days in early February, 2014, I went out on a mentoring excursion to work with Gretchen of Gretchen Noelle Photography, and we braved the elements for, oh, about 45 seconds before I couldn’t feel my fingers anymore, and my children (my dutiful models) were frozen solid.  So we happily retreated to the warmth of a cupcake shop to finish out our February session.

A SallyKate Photography child photography session with my own girls in my basement studio, to show off some new clothing for a child clothing company online, and to celebrate Valentines Day.   I just love photographing these two girls together.  <3

And, while I can’t say that I miss all that snow (yet, perhaps), I do miss basements here in Texas!  Here’s a bunch of friends together in mine!
