Ballet Mini Sessions {McAllen Texas Children’s Photographer}

So my kids have always been my biggest inspiration when it comes to photography…I get ALL of  my ideas by watching them, and photographing them, so it comes as no surprise to me that this ballet idea popped into my head.  Somehow, after 11 years of having three little girls (none of who have been in ballet) I have found myself with 2 out of 3 of my girls in ballet this year!  I feel like I spend all of my time at the ballet studio, and MUCH to my surprise, I’m finding myself LOVING it!  I love the feel of the school, the music, the girls of all ages both seriously training, and little ones just happy to be in their cute outfits… basically the overall atmosphere!   And then the idea came….I would LOVE to photograph ballet dancers in their simple leotards and tights, in a natural dancing environment!  I had a very specific image in my head of what I wanted these to look like, so I took my oldest and my youngest in to the studio the other day and played…my oldest is 11 and just started this year, so she’s not in toe shoes yet, but I still LOVE the way these turned out!

So here’s the deal…I’m offering 20 minute mini sessions this Friday and Saturday (Oct 3 and 4th) at my studio…$175.00 per session…includes a $50 print credit.  Very limited spots available…email soon!!!

Baby C {McAllen Tx Baby Photographer}

Well, the school year has started, which means that it is also the start of the busy FAMILY PORTRAIT SEASON for holiday cards! This school year is going to be a whole new world for me…for the 1st time in 11 years, I won’t have a baby or a toddler at home with me! All 3 of my girls are in school now, which means I’ll be able to work at my studio a LOT more, BUT, since all 3 girls are in school now, that means that they are also all in various (and many) after school activities! I am looking at my weekly commitments (aka taxi driving duties) and I honestly don’t know how I’m going to be able to work after 3:30, or when I am going to be able to do afternoon/evening outdoor sessions! Since this is definitely my busy season for shooting outdoor family sessions, I’m going to have to figure something out soon! So, I’m asking for your help….if you know that you are going to want to do an outdoor FAMILY SESSION with me this fall for HOLIDAY PORTRAITS, PLEASE email me at  or message me on FB soon so I can start figuring out a schedule…My only hope is that my loyal and faithful clients will continue to be understanding and patient when it comes to my scheduling….:)

And now for a sneak peek of one of the sweetest babies!!!  I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again…I LOVE photographing 6-10 month old babies!!!  Baby C was so sweet and easy to photograph…I loved her session!!!  Hope mom loves these!!!
