Mama's got a brand new blog!!!!!!

I can't hold it in anymore!!!!! I've been working with Theresa to get this going. It's not quite finished, yet, but I just can't wait. Check it out and BE SURE to update your bookmarks!!!!!! And if you have my blog listed on your blog/website, don't forget to update that, too. I know it's a pain, but it's worth it. The new blog is so much purdier.

bonnie blue.

Today has been the craziest day and I am positively beat. But, I have yet to go to sleep withough posting a sneak peek of the day's session and today will be no exception. Since last year's bluebonnet field has become a parking lot, I've been desperate to find a replacement. I passed this place on my way to take the kids to school this morning. This little cutie's mom was SUCH a trooper! I told her the flowers are perfect, the weather is perfect, the timing is perfect...can we make it happen today???

And, just like that, she has packed up little miss M (note: her name is not "bonnie") and next thing you know, we're venturing around in this field of wildflowers. All it took was a little Pirate's Booty and miss M was willing to stay in one spot just long enough for me to snap a few pics.
Keep in mind, this may be part one of our time with miss M, so stay tuned for more pics in the future. Thanks, E! It was GREAT to meet you and drive around with you today!

"Olive Garden"

I overheard this conversation in the back of the van yesterday:
Tristan: "Well, Logan, next year, I won't get to see you at school anymore."
L: "Whyyyyyy, Tee Tee?"
T: "I'm going to go to a big boy school."
L: "My don't want you to go to big boy school."
T: "Well, Logs, I'm going to be a big boy and I have to go to Olive Garden."

Long pause while I recover...
"Oh, sweetie, I think you mean kindergarten."

And now for some completely random Easter/Spring-related pics....

And oh yes, still a few spaces open in the Cupcake Academy this weekend!

Quick updates

Just wanted to let everyone know a few little tidbits:

1. March is, of course, closed for bookings, but I have 2 spaces left for sessions in April. And, I've also opened up May, so let me know if you want to set up a session in the next few months.

2. There is a Cupcake Academy scheduled for NEXT Sunday, March 30th. Originally, this was only going to be for individuals who have not had a Pinkle Toes session, but we've got a few spaces left, so I thought I'd go ahead and open those up for any past clients as well.

3. This is just another adorable pic I had to share from my "little dolls" session last week.

Hope you all are LOVING this beautiful weather!

Lucky for the beautiful weather that let us play outside today.

Lucky for this dress that fluttered so perfectly in the breeze.

Lucky for the light that fell on her just perfectly.

Lucky for the little one that I'll get to photograph in a few months.

Lucky for that perfect little baby belly.

Lucky to have worked with you today, T!
You did great and you look just beautiful, hon!

little dolls.

The title and the pictures speak for themselves, I believe.
This expression cracked me up.

"He's got the whoooooole world in his room..."

Beautiful children, beautiful home.
Getting the two of them in the same picture together: priceless.
Thank you, M, for a fantastic session today!

the view from here.

There are times when the magic of Austin, Texas just hits you and fills your sails. Like tonight. Here is this beautiful couple, SxSW has taken over downtown, great music and the smell of Mexican food fill the air, it's warm with a wonderful breeze, a brand new life is just peeking around the corner, the sunset casts a soft glow over the city...and you think, "Wow. It's great to be alive in Austin, Texas, tonight."
I said I wanted her to look urban chic. She nailed it.

You would not believe what surrounded us in the ally. (Okay, so not all of Austin is perfect. )

These two are so very much in love. Sigh.
See what I mean? Austin, the people, the atmosphere...
...simply stunning.
