Isn’t she CUUUUUUUTE?!
LOVE THIS!!!! My HILAAAARIOUS jokes work on kids, too 😉 This happens to be a favorite! ❗
So handsome 😉
The forecast called for rain… and it DID rain 🙂 In the middle of the shoot we all had to sit in our cars while Mike checked out the radar to see when we could go back out. It went from being fun and bright to dreary and wet. Luckily, because of the forecasted rain Mikey and I bought these umbrellas to make the most of it. 🙂 They ended up working PERFECTLY!
Mikey’s fave ❓
This one reminds me of Peter Pan and Wendy 🙂
🙂 What a perfect day…
AUSTIN, Texas. WE LOVE THESE KIDS!!!!!!!! We don’t get to photograph many kids at this age, but we want to do it more. What great fun they are! SO full of personality, goofiness, fun, love, etc etc etc…
Madison reminds me SO much of me when I was her age.Â She even kinda looks like me when I was that age.Â Oh, and Madison’s FAR from shy, that’s for sure! She has no problem being the center of attention. She’s a drama queen, and I love that! 🙂 She asked me if she’d be famous on our website… So Madison… will this work? 😀 Are you famous now?
Jackson, ironically… is JUST like Mike was at that age. He’s smart, sarcastic and sweet. About halfway through the session I mentioned that it might rain during the session. Jackson said, “Yeah, it might… but the strong weather is really supposed to be here tomorrow.” Mike’s eyes lit up! He found a friend who loves the weather just as much as he does! Mike busted out the laptop and pulled up the radar (we have one of those Sprint things so that we have the Internet wherever we are 🙂 ). And there’s Mike and Jackson… checking out the radar. SO CUUUUUUTE!
We’ll DEFINITELY be back to Austin sometime next year… and we’ll DEFINITELY be making a trip to see them 🙂 DUH!
Here’s an email from Alyssa (their dad’s girlfriend, who set up the whole session) and it really made me smile. 🙂
“I just wanted to let y’all know we all had a GREAT time on Friday afternoon. The kids still haven’t stopped talking about you guys! On the way home, Maddie said she wished y’all were coming to stay with us rather than a hotel! Jackson agreed. Ha! This morning I woke up to Maddie yelling ‘I’m hunting waaaabits!’ I think the two of you made quite an impression on them!”
We adore you guys. 🙂
LOVE TO YOU!!!!

❗ MISS YOU ALREADY! ❓
Awesome photos! I especially love the bright colored umbrellas. Great improv! They sure made for some great props and probably fun too! Iâ€™m going to have to borrow the umbrella idea for sure! If I had to pick a favoriteâ€¦.the one with the great kidsâ€¦..one on each side with the umbrellas and the golden field, aka-photo #9!
oh my gosh, these 2 are quite a pair! the umbrella pics all ROCKED! they look like they really knew what they were doing – i am impressed. sooo happy and fun! it looks like your TX shoots were all so great – what a super trip. looking at the photos on your blog always make me happy, and then i love to think about the reaction of the people IN the photos…they must be so excited! i remember being crazy excited when our engagement photos went up – and Madison, I know what you mean, this blog made me feel famous, at 26 years old, too. 🙂
As much as I love the color in these, the B&W (Mikey’s fav) is …phenomenal! Just…wow.
love the red and blue umbrellas!
my kids are my favorite subject. i am not very happy that they are growing so fast and one day i will no longer have them as my happy go lucky willing subjects.
kids are just so honest and real.
what BEAUTIFUL kids!! you captured so much personality in these pictures…if sundance had kids clothes, these two would be perfect models. what gorgeous, gorgeous kids. love it.
First time commenting!!!! I love these photos. My favorite is photo 13, I reminded me of the adventures my cousin and I would take when we were younger . Walking through the woods and park but thinking we were GREAT ADVENTURERS. HA! I love all the work that you two do, your website has been an addiction for well over a year now. Keep it up and Thank You!
This shoot was really great…I love the sibling interaction in these. All of your Austin shoots have been great!! How fun to travel!
Oh Bobbi I love it!!!! I’m actually sitting here with tears in my eyes. The last two are what choked me up because these two will CHERISH these photos together. Sorry to get personal on your blog, but after losing my sister, I have a whole new renewed respect for how important it is to capture not just the kids themselves, but their interaction with their siblings. You nailed it!!!
I love these pictures!!! The memories and personalities you have captured will be a treasured gift for their parents forever. As always, I’m so proud of the two of you.
goodness gracious you two!! you just outdo yourselves each and every time!!! LOVE IT! (though you didn’t mention anything about Mike’s hilarious jokes this round….?) 😉
Oh My My My……..this session is one of my favorites! These kids are absolutely adorable! I love Maddison’s expression in the peter pan and wendy pic…what a little actress! I love all the umbrella shots too! You guys are amazing!!
the shot of them in the field with them holding up the umbrellas is my favorite! it’s sooo perfect!
I am so in love with these! The umbrellas are too much fun! My fav is the one where he has his arm around her. I have a 10 year old son, so I know how few and far between those kind of moments are. Great job!
I love how you guys can photograph all ages! Next we need a couple who is celebrating something like 35 to even 50 yrs or beyond of marriage!! I would love to have you photograph my 80 something year old grandmother she is absolutley beautful. I look forward to checking your blog everyday!
Best. Shoot. Ever.

OMGosh, I now want to adopt those two beautiful little suckers. Beautiful, perfect.
What cute kiddos. I love the field with the umbrellas!
Oh my gosh . . . that is too funny you said she looked like you because as I was viewing the photos I thought to myself “that little girl looks like Bobbi! How funny!
ESPECIALLY in photo #5 . . that is when I first noticed the resembelance. Especially aruond the mouth, chin and smile! Great photos and super cute kids! Anne
It should totally be a crime to be this good. And then we will all want to become criminals, like you 🙂
These are so sweet and LOVE the umbrellas. I hope my kids are this close when they get older!
Oh Bobbi! I’m at school and can’t write much but just had to see if they were up. I have tears in my eyes and am so blessed to have Maddie and Jack in my life.
I am in love with these! How cute! 🙂 I love the first one and the umbrellas!

Bobbi and Mike——— These photos are more than I ever dreamed they could be! Simple, beautiful, timeless, loving, ethereal. I can’t wait to see the rest of them!
I hope you know that next time you’re in Austin, you won’t be allowed to stay at a hotel if the Madison and Jack have anything to say about it! You guys are now our forever friends!

Bobbi & Mike,
I’m completely in tears with gratitude and happiness. I’m Jack & Maddie’s mom and I have to tell you how precious these moments are and you and Mike completely and full heartedly captured them. I can’t tell you how blessed I feel because Alyssa found such phenomenal people to capture these incredible beings from above. It’s taken me a good 10 minutes to wipe the tears before I could focus on telling you how much I appreciate and admire you two. You completely had Jack and Maddie eating out of your hands. You brought out the best of them and captured it forever. You turned a dreary day into a trip of fantastic energy and joy. The word energy is an understatement, but it was one of the best experiences and simply magical. Thanks so much for letting me share in it. Alyssa, you are an angel and I couldn’t wish for a more caring, beautiful person to be in their lives. Thank you just isn’t enough. You have a mother’s heart and a profound and deep gratitude.
God bless y’all,
Y’all did a beautiful job! I can really see the kids’ personalities shine through in each photo. I really love the black&whites! It turned out that the rain didn’t really put a on damper afterall, as the bright umbrellas worked great! Sandy-your kiddos are adorable!!
I cried too. The B&W’s are all my favs. Thanks so much to Alyssa, Sandy, Bobbi, and Mike. Love, Jenny Gill
What a way to start the day. I woke up to find an email from Jack & Maddie’s mom (love you Sandy!) with the link to these incredible photos. I’m just sitting here in awe! What beautiful children, and your skill in capturing their adorable personalities is second to none. I tried to pick a fav, but I can’t! Kudos to Alyssa for setting this whole thing up (love you girl!). How do I get copies?!
Hooray for rain! the shots with the umbrellas are AWESOME!
