As some of you may know, we are going through the process of adoption. We recently were matched and we're hoping to be placed early December. OMG. All this time I felt like time was crawling and now it feels like everything is happening so fast and there are not enough hours in the day to get everything ready! As a result, I will be taking some time off to spend time with family. I will not be taking any more sessions in December (if we've already set something up, you're good!) and will be taking limited sessions in the early months of 2014.

What does this mean for you? Well, if you think you might want a session in January, February, or March of 2014, it would best to book early. And if you needed a little incentive, here you go! All 2014 sessions booked (deposit paid) by December 31, 2013 will receive ALL of the best edited images from their session.

If you are a past client of mine, pay attention! Starting in 2014, I will store images from each session for six months. After that time, I will delete those files from my computer. That means you will have until then to purchase any digital files you did not purchase at the initial gallery viewing. And because everyone loves a deal-- enjoy a BOGO sale on all digital files until November 30, 2013.

If interested in either deal, shoot me an email at tjarmusch@yahoo.com. And because a post is always better with a picture, here is my family of seven...as of now. :) We.are.EXCITED! pflugerville adoption photographer - Toni Marie Photography

I was pregnant through the Texas summer for both boys, and man oh man, I might as well have been a mermaid with all the time I spent in the pool! If I wasn't in the A/C, I was in that blue chlorinated water.

Meet Bethany. While gorgeous, she is nuts! She said she hadn't really been in the pool all summer and I about died of shock. You're pregnant! We're in Texas! THE POOL JUST MAKES SENSE! Luckily, she was game for a little poolside maternity session so she at least got in one dip before Baby Boy #2 arrives. :)

Doesn't she look GREAT? austin maternity photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin maternity photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin maternity photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin maternity photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin maternity photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin maternity photographer - Toni Marie Photography

The last time I saw this family, they were waiting for Naomi to make her big debut. A lot changes in a year because as you can see, Naomi is a big girl celebrating her first birthday!

Naomi has the best hair (both my kids were baldies well past their first birthdays) and the CUTEST little cheeks. She was in a serious mood that day, but when the cake came out she was definitely much more expressive. ;) Hands down, she is one of the most adorable little girls I've ever seen! austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography austin family photographer - Toni Marie Photography

I had met Chloe through a group of moms a while ago but never really got to know her. Well recently we've started hanging out more and man oh man...she is AWESOME! :) She's so down-to-earth and sweet, and she's got three of the cutest little boys ever. I've really enjoyed these last few weeks.

So imagine my excitement when she was the winner of a giveaway I held on Facebook. ::insert happy dance here:: We met up at a local park since parks and playgrounds were where the S Family loved spending their time this summer, and we just let the kids have some fun. I didn't get all the shots I wanted because 1) we were starting to melt and 2) the kids were about done, but I think I got some good ones. :)

Chloe, thanks so much for your patience in that morning heat! I loved working with your family! pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville family photographer - Toni Marie Photography

These two are busy. With work, school, and THREE kids it's rare they see a date night. Even rarer (<-- that's a word, right?) that they make time to get pictures taken of the two of them. It's a good thing they've got a pushy SIL (yoohoo, it's me. :) ) that had been begging them to pick a date for pictures. And finally, they did.

I can only speak for myself here, but I'm SO glad they did. I loved everything about this session. The lighting, the location, the LOVE. <3

When Natalie's mama first contacted me about photographing her sweet 5-year-old, I knew I wanted lots of color. Because really, color = celebration, and what's NOT to celebrate about turning 5?

Natalie was a little shy at first but she quickly warmed up and loved being in front of the camera. With those big beautiful eyes and that sweet smile, she is a natural beauty and I loved our time together.

I posted a few of my all-time favorites on facebook HERE and HERE. pflugerville child photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville child photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville child photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville child photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville child photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville child photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville child photographer - Toni Marie Photography pflugerville child photographer - Toni Marie Photography
Shortly after the Sandy Hook tragedy, The Olivia Act was created, a group that served to inspire photographers across the nation to donate a family session to a family that might not have booked due to financial or time constraints. I took nominations and waited.
Shortly after, I received a nomination for Heather's family from an old friend. It didn't take long to realize this was one deserving family. :)
Both M and H have a passion to serve and their love for our Lord is contagious! M is serving in the Army Reserve and is a full-time seminary student. They are on a tight budget, but it doesn't get in the way of their way of serving their church and community. They have a precious, almost 3 year old and a sweet baby girl due in May. This would be a wonderful opportunity to have pictures taken of their growing family!

I truly enjoyed my time photographing the H Family. They were so kind, so fun, and so adorable! <3 round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography round rock family photographer - Toni Marie Photography
