I first met this mama at AWANA years and years ago when we were preteens. I remember thinking OMG, this girl is so sweet and kind and beautiful...can she have at least one flaw?!? We lost touch over the years, but then we reconnected on facebook and I found out that she is an awesome clown (that is the term she uses for herself!) and an amazing mom.

I was beyond thrilled when we started discussing her family session. It was very important for her husband that they revisit a location near and dear to them -the place where they had their engagement photos, when two were becoming one- especially now that they were a family of three. (On another note, I could just eat little A up! She is too adorable!)

This session, to date, is still one of my favorite sessions. I love the images. The significance behind the location. The gorgeous subjects and the gorgeous lighting. I just love it all. 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

Toni Marie Photography Holiday Mini Sessions 2014

It's been just over a year since I took these photos of sweet baby Katherine and man oh man, do I remember that hair! All my babies were baldies for a loooong time so it's always a nice change of scenery when I can photograph a baby with a full head of hair.

My favorite thing about newborn sessions is being able to capture all their tiny features. I sure miss the days of tiny feet and tiny fingers and all the chubby goodness. And OHMYGOODNESS the new baby smell. I wish I could capture that on camera somehow. ;)

Oh and last but not least, I do have the winner of my giveaway to announce. Of course, LATE. :) The winner of the giveaway is...

Sheri B.!

Which is fitting not only because this sweet baby girl is HERS, but also because sweet K was her very own "little valentine," born a few days before Valentine's Day last year! Congratulations!

The weather here has been crazy. Winter, in all my years here, used to be a few days in the 30s, one random ice day ("snow" if we were lucky), and then days and days 60* and up. But man, now it's 60* and up on the weekends and 50* and below during the week (<-- which if you know me is too cold. I stay indoors wrapped in a blanket. lol)

My SIL had been wanting pictures with her baby girl since baby girl will be turning TWO soon and she didn't really have many pictures of the two of them. However, my SIL is even more of a weenie than I am with the cold so we definitely took advantage of one of those nice days. I haven't gone through all of the images yet, but this one was definitely a favorite.

Speaking of valentines, the big day o' love is this Friday. For the past few years, my husband and I have stayed in with the kids. We'll grab a movie and eat chocolate fondue and just enjoy one another's company. It's become one of my favorite traditions and I'm so excited for the three newest to join in. Since it's been pretty quiet on the Toni Marie Photography front, I thought a little giveaway might be fun. :)

Just comment on this post and tell me 1) your favorite Valentine's Day tradition, 2) about your hands-down best Valentine's Day, or 3) your idea of the perfect Valentine's Day. Pick one or pick all. I'm just excited to read about it. :) Winner will be announced on Valentine's Day 2014 (so um, this Friday) and will win a 30-minute session and a 16x20 print from their session. Session must be redeemed by June 1, 2014.

For an extra entry, post a photo of your valentine (it can be anyone- your spouse, your kids, your dog, your BFF, etc) on instagram. Be sure to tag @tonimarie_14, #mylittlevalentine and #tonimariephotography .

Good luck!
