Just a little family time | McKinney, Texas Family Photographer

It’s hard to describe a good family session sometimes. You just have that moment where the family all comes together, has some fun, smiles and laughs allowing me to capture that genuine family moment! Whether being playful, or more traditional, the session for the Bartz family just seemed to come together. But, why use words to describe what I mean when you can just see for yourself below! Enjoy a few photos from their session!:)

Fun With Powder Paint | Hayd Turns Six! | McKinney, Texas Portrait Photographer

Whew, what a month it has been. First “Izzy” turns one, and now “Hayd” turns six! We had a blast for his birthday by covering him in powder paint (per his request!). It was an interesting new thing to try out while he blasted himself with some colorful paints. He seemed to be having a great time while making himself look like one of those multi-colored crayons.:)Check out a few pictures from the day, before we cleaned up and went out to have a great celebration with all of the family and friends!

The Princess Turns One! | McKinney, Texas, Children Photographer

My, how times flies! I cannot believe our very own little Princess Ivy (Izzy) just turned one. I still remember when she was so small and tiny, and now she is up and running around! She is still just as adorable as ever, thankfully, and making hearts melt everywhere she goes. We took her out to a park to have her first birthday cake and she seemed to enjoy it a lot! After sticking her little fingers into the cake, she looked up and said, “Mmm!” Below you can see a few photos from her birthday, enjoy!:)
