well okay, if I’m being honest, I’ve been staring at the weather ap for a month now!  So saltwater sessions have been a straight up weather disaster this year and there is no way to sugar coat that one bit y’all!  After having to cancel half of the session the weekend we went a month ago because of 30 mph winds, I’ve now had my rainout, rained out TWICE!  But lets not dwell on the negative stuff right?!  let’s be glass half full kind of people over here :) so while i was there and i was able to shoot, THIS WAS one of the sessions I shot!  …dramatic pause…because, I FREAKING LOVE THESE PEOPLE!  like in a weird i-just-met-them-kinda-of-way, yes but hellloooo do you see these little girls!  we sang moana the entire session and y’all we sang it LOUD!  and it was simply amazing!  yes, i do realize that I’ve ended every sentence with an exclamation mark but that tells you how serious i am about this beautiful little family <3   as for the weather say a little prayer or throw up a no-more-rain-dance for this monday or june 11 because those are my next two set dates to head to galveston and hopefully get these sessions done…

If you live in our town you probably know this fabulous lady!  (I swear she is friends with every single person who lives here y’all) but in all seriousness my beautiful friend will be the first to tell you she “wasn’t real sure” when i launched mommy and me minis but after reading my blog post where i poured my heart out she said she HAD to have one and i told her to trust me.  she did!  She’s kind of amazing like that!  Anyways this mama is one of those friends, you know she gets life done and makes it look easy, she is in the business of making things happen and wife’ing, mom’ing and working out all at the same time :) Her family is her world and there is just something special about showing a mom like that a gallery full of images of her loving on her babies with all of her heart!  gah!  every time i revisit these mommy and me sessions from last month i get a little teary …

 

Mama A… I love the way you love on your family!  I see you running to the school for this and that all day every day!  As different as each of your babies are you know just how to show them that they are special and amazing!  YOU, my friend ARE pretty darn special and amazing <3

this is my adorable, precious, ridiculously cute niece…she loves me, like i am for sure the best aunt ever UNTIL…du du duuuuuuhhhh until i get my camera!  then this little stinker refuses to look at me, pretends I’m not even there and ignores my voice!  y’all this started way back when she was a newborn and she refused to sleep for me during her session … then we attempted 6 months pics and well that was laughable, her one year session was a sweaty mess and then this!  i mean this child totally lures me in by smiling and dancing and even fake laughing with me and then i get her in a cute outfit, sit her in this amazing head in the clouds set and pick up my camera and BAM she literally turns her back to me people!!!!  like insert crying hysterical laughing emoji here cause i can not beat her at this game hahahahahaha…send help please she will be two before i know it and I’ve got to be able to exclaim victory y’all!  and ignore the typos in my watermark y’all its been a looooong weekend after the second swim meet of the year am I’m not even going to pretend like I’m going to go and fix it

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!
