Snow! { Austin Children’s Photographer }

Yay! We had snow in Austin today! And LOTS of it!!! There were loads happy children throughout the great state of Texas! I heard of snow reports in Houston and San Antonio too! It looked like a winter wonderland around 1pm this afternoon. My boys spent most of the day outside soaking up the snow.:)Some highlights of their day… Enjoy!

I absolutely loved every minute of this sweet baby girl’s newborn session! Her beautiful mommy and I had so much fun dressing her up in all my newborn hats and props.:)I absolutely love what I do! Enjoy your sneak peek, “S” family! You are blessed!

I love peeling skin on a newborn…
