Avery Christmas Photos

Sam and I took Avery to Union Station to grab some snaps of Avery for Christmas.  Union Station was just completely refurbished and it looks stunning.  We had such a fun day downtown with the little lady.  She is just such a spunky little munchkin and this was her first time riding the light rail. She. Loved. It. IMG_3423 IMG_3429 IMG_3433 IMG_3446

Once we got to Union Station, we were both blown away by how gorgeous the city has made the former train terminal.


There was also a HUGE, gorgeous, Christmas tree that a TON of people were taking pictures in front of.  IMG_3477

Cheeky girl. IMG_3511 IMG_3513 IMG_3536 IMG_3592 IMG_3612

Then we took this little peanut outside and let her run around. IMG_3644

I love this picture cause it looks like she has crazy dance moves. IMG_3649 IMG_3655 IMG_3657 IMG_3672 IMG_3681

Finally we took Avery to Tattered Cover and she POURED over her horse books. The kid is obsessed with horses. IMG_3693

A Mind Like an Elephant...

Or a gnat. Or whatever it is that forgets stuff all the time and everyone thinks it is OK. I was about to publish the Christmas pictures that I took of Avery, when I realized that I hadn't yet shared the family pictures I took of Avery + Alan & Sam. So, with a 3 month delay, and the whole delayed gratification is better thing, here are their pictures. :) She is SO. Dang. GROWN. UP! I look at this picture and can see her as a teenager... it scares the living daylights out of me.


And that headband!? I die. IMG_2840 IMG_2879

Chocolate face and everything. This kid likes sweets more than any other kid I know. IMG_2887 IMG_2888

Warning: I was clearly loving the coordinating bright pants color thing happening in these photos. So when you ask what happened to their heads I just say: "THE PANTS Y'ALL!"IMG_3048 IMG_3057 IMG_3062 IMG_3072 IMG_3091 IMG_3104

I am obsessed with Avery's face in this one. Love that little peanut's mischievous personality for days. IMG_3106

So there ya have it-- my second ever family shoot for friends. It is pretty cool that I can feel myself improving every day that I pick up the camera. I am so grateful that I finally just dived in and bought the camera and got to shooting in manual. Knowing I can adequately capture something is just plain awesome.
