i truly believe that each of you, no matter what kind of camera you have or dont have, no matter how perfect or imperfect our days can be, it needs to be captured…LIFE needs to be captured.  As a group we hope to inspire you to take out that camera, capture a full day of YOUR life, capture your afternoon swinging at the park, or riding bikes to check the mail, any of it, all of it, just capture it!  No one but your family will prob ever enjoy these images and hey they may not ever even be edited if you are a photog but the bottom line is someday you will look back and you will be so happy you have these memories captured.

PLEASE CONTINUE THROUGH THE CIRCLE by heading over to my incredibly amazing friend and try inspiration of what it means to be a mom, a photog and a bright light in this world for so many

so as the year came to a close and i was working on our family year book i was simply giddy to see so many of our everyday images in one place…truth is i am every year since i started the project, it makes my heart sing and brings a smile to my face about all of the wonderful-ness we have relished in over the year.  AS A PHOTOG AND A MOM IT NOT ONLY MAKES ME PROUD BUT FEEDS MY SOUL…THIS IS WHY I DO WHAT I DO (period).  so without further adieu here is a small compilation of our every images from 2012…what our 2012 looked like! 🙂 xoxo

I’m playing a little catch up from the end of the year’s holiday craze there were so many All Wrapped UP mini sessions i never got to blog and a handful of full sessions that didnt get blogged either….you now its not like me to miss a chance to blog but sometimes the insanity gets the best of me and it happens, ha…

so ill try to add some goodies here and there as we skip through january…

love love love this family!  if you follow this blog you would know they have been here about a gazillion times, and each time we seem sot have more and more fun!  we tend to take little random crazy adventures and…well…the inside jokes are in abundance, bwhahahaha

we hit up an old fav location i hadn’t been in so long, market street  and as luck would had it the cold snap that joined us was soooo not welcome!  well we made it happen and it was better than we could have imagined…as i always seem to say when i shoot this family LOVE just seems to ooze from their pores, and

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!
