A few weekends ago, I spent three afternoons with some of the sweetest families around. This was my second year to do family portraits for Little Saints and Scholars, and oh the fun we had! Over 5o families came out to smile and play, and we captured some very sweet moments. Here is a handful of my favorites. This year we shot on the porch of Taste of Home in Wylie. The quaint eatery is located in the heart of downtown Wylie, in an old home that was restored to accommodate the crowds that clamor to partake of Kathy's famous Chicken Salad. The next time you're out this way for a session, be sure to make time to stop in for a delicious meal! A special thank you to Charlotte, the amazing director at the school, for another wonderful opportunity. And much thanks to Kathy and her staff for giving up their porch so we could shoot! And, of course, so many thanks to all the families who came out to join me. Here's a little feedback from the mama of the little boy enjoying a leaf dinner (above): Thanks so much for a fabulous photo shoot! You worked magic getting the kids to smile. I know that a 4 year old and a 2 year old are not the most cooperative subjects, but you managed to make it look easy AND get the good shots! I appreciate the time you took to get great pictures and the rapport you built with Danielle and Andrew. Without your hard work I would still be waiting for some photos without "cheesy smiles" or tears. Thanks again, everyone!
