christmas jammies 2017… chubby cheek photography

so back in 2015 you may remember i brought back christmas jammie minis after a few year break … the setup exceeded my expectations beyond my wildest dreams and yet again i thought i can’t create a better set!  so in 2016 we decided to do the same set up with that little bed daddy cheeks built me  , well mother nature had other plans and rained us out notice but twice!  We tried to move the set up indoors but no studio was available so we had to cancel all together…insert the saddest face ever…i promised my clients that if i got to do jammie minis this year they would be INSIDE!  You see jammie minis are booked late because 1.  not everyone thinks to book Christmas pics in july 2. they are scheduled for my last weekend of shooting and the date is only free if nothing gets rained out earlier in the fall.  Well i booked the studio waaaay back in the summer and daddy cheeks dug the bed out of our messy third car garage.  I decided to keep the setup but add little touch of green to it and voila jammies 2017 unveiled!  this sweet girl is having a pastel colored Christmas birthday party so we opted to go with pastel jammies rather than traditional red and grey and my pastel loving heart literally exploded!

the photographer trade…

photographers need family pictures too y’all!  Well I have traded every year with my sweet friend abby glenn from austin  I don’t really even remember how we met or why we met but we were for sure MEANT to meet!  we have traded family pics for 4 years!  her pics are plastered all over my walls and mine grace her house!  it’s the perfect way to do it, we shoot the session and hand over the card to each other!  yes that means as a photographer you don’t get to scroll through and see “how you did” and it’s a bit of a vulnerable place as an artist because it’s like the old days of shooting where you had to shoot on film and wait 7 days for it to be developed and mailed back to you!  but the most amazing part is you don’t have any extra pics to edit smack dab in the middle of busy season because we each get to edit our own pics on our own time!!!!!  y’all its the best!!!!!  I love abby as a friend, a photographer, a mom and a sounding board!  not only do we trade pics but we are constantly talking about ideas, sets, editing issues, mom problems ha you name it we’ve talked about!  it’s too bad she is all the way in austin 🙁 and not my next door neighbor…this is abby’s family, she edited these and sent them to me so i could share them bc her family is seriously perfections!

Bubble Blower + Glitter Thrower + Magic Maker

Hey yall!  I'm, Shalonda, the eyes behind the camera of chubby cheek photography. I am a nationally published child photographer, based out of Houston Texas, where I am drowning in glitter + princess dresses with my two daughters, also known as the cheeks girls, and the love of my life, daddy cheeks.  I am inspired by REAL life + the magic of childhood and I truly believe that the in between moments mean the most... even when that means stepping on a Barbie shoe before I have had my morning coffee!
