If there is anyone that has been putting off having pictures taken, I have ONE LAST SPOT! It’s TODAY (Wednesday) at 4:00. Let me know ūüėČ

If you are up for a quick last minute mini session, let me know! I’m opening up this weekend….mornings only.

 

Last chance for the weekend……

I have TWO spots left for mini sessions THIS Saturday morning! If there are more than two interested, I might open up Sunday morning too!

Great house, great location! ¬†I’m also obsessed with the master closet!

Real Estate photography is something that I started doing a couple of years ago. ¬†I love doing it! ¬†Agents, if you book me for the first time in the month of September (the shoot doesn’t necessarily have to take place in September, just the booking), I will give you 20% off the cost of the shoot! ¬†So spread the word!

The Fordhams are of course, adorable as you can clearly see. ¬†Not only that but they carry such peace coupled with a sense of adventure. ¬†I’ve done many kid sessions and I’ve pretty much seen it all. ¬†Some are harder than others but I always walk away seeing it a little differently than the parents. ¬†I know what it’s like to be a parent and wanting your kids to cooperate for pictures (hence why I couldn’t even send out a Christmas card last year). ¬†The thing that the parents don’t usually see until the pictures come back is that even when the conditions seem tough, there is almost always a smile or a smirk that is in there that can be captured. ¬†Sometimes it’s stepping back and allowing them to just be who they are. ¬†It creates an environment that is safe and authentic for them. ¬†I know I’m going off a little here but I really see these sessions a little differently now. ¬†I think it’s so important to capture who the kids (families, individuals) TRULY are. ¬†The pictures end up being ones that you will look back on years later and smile, remembering how they were and the authentic smile that they had at that age. ¬†The Fordham kids are such sweet kids.¬† The boys wanted to help their little sister, who wanted NOTHING to do with me or especially my camera. ¬†Whitney (their mom) and I¬†finally stepped back and just let them be and play and through that, were able to catch some sweet photos that show their true selves.

Eli is fun and adventurous. ¬†He will have a very positive influence on¬†the world….

Cooper has such a sweet, gentle spirit and extremely kind. ¬†He will be a safe place for people….

Avery is powerful and full of grace…

Big brothers helping to distract and entertain their little sister….

Avery was a little stuck on the word “no” throughout most of the shoot (see first pic below) so Whitney¬†pulled out all the stops, gave her a phone, and let her be. ¬†We ended up getting some great smiles out of her (see below)….

…and like every good event¬†with boys, it ends in a tackle ūüėČ

Cooper, Avery and Eli….

It’s time to start thinking about Fall sessions! ¬†I have set my mini session schedule and have already started booking people (early). ¬†If you want a spot, grab it now. ¬†I have several options but it’s first come, first serve. ¬†The locations are different each day so make sure to ask before picking the day, if that matters to you. For info on dates and pricing, email me: info@cyndeasampson.com or you can text/call me: (830) 998-5802.

This house has so much potential! ¬†The yard alone (front and back) is amazing with so many trees and space! ¬†It’s worth going to see for sure.

 

 

Meet the Chester Family! ¬†I was referred to them through a friend this summer and I’m so glad for that! ¬†They were such a fun family to hang out with and photograph. ¬†I took my oldest son (age 9) as my assistant for this shoot and upon leaving he said, “Mom, they were such a nice family. ¬†I’m so glad I got to go with you.” I felt the same way. ¬†They were friendly, easy-going and fun. ¬†It’s families like The Chesters that make my job not feel like work. ¬†Here are a few of my favorites from their session….
