Dorean Pope Photography - More Play Date Favorites - Leander Child Photographer

Now that I have finally finished editing all of the play date portraits I have done so far and online proofing is available for all of the moms, I wanted to take a minute to go back and share a few more of my favorites with you all from the past couple of weeks.

You'll notice that not all of these are traditional portraits and the kiddos aren't necessarily smiling in all of them. Part of the fun in photographing children, for me, is trying to capture their personality - to be able to capture a facial expression that is part of who they are at this stage in life, so that when you look back on it you can remember this phase. Another thing I try to do is capture facial features. Whenever I look at my baby girl, I am constantly reminded of how fast she is growing up and changing. For me, capturing her facial features up close will be a priceless memory for years to come.

Happy Wednesday!!

Dorean Pope Photography - Sweet Valentine! - Cedar Park Child Photographer

Last year when our baby was almost 4 months old, I decided to take some pictures of her to make into a card for her daddy as a present for Valentines Day. My brain was still scrambled and consumed with baby, so I didn't do much planning in advance to celebrate the day. This is one of the pictures I came up with - nothing too fancy, but it made an awfully cute card.

This year as the date approached, I decided it was time for more pictures and another card. This will be a good way for me to take pictures of her at the same time every year to really track her growth. (Not that I need an excuse to take pictures of her. Right now her folder on my computer has close to 5,000 files... I might have a problem!)

This was the end result this year. I am loving that her hair is long enough to put into little pig tails now! Sweet baby girl!

Happy Belated Valentines Day everyone! I hope you had a wonderful day.

Dorean Pope Photography - Valentines Day Party Play Date - (Austin Child & Infant Photographer)

I have been busy this week visiting mom's groups! Lots of fun kiddos to chase around. =) Enjoy the latest installment from Wednesday. If you recall, it poured down rain Tuesday night, but lucky for us the clouds parted and it was wonderfully sunny for this Valentines Day party on Wednesday.
Thanks for letting me join the fun! Sorry I couldn't fit a sneak peak for everyone on the blog... there were just too many photos. I will be in touch next week with your online proofing information.
Have a great weekend everyone!!

Dorean Pope Photography - Rainy Day Play Date - (Austin Child & Infant Photographer)

I got to hang out with a great group of moms yesterday for another mom's group play date. These guys were troopers and made it out through all of the rain and dreariness. We played indoors and on the porch and had a lot of fun. I hope you guys enjoy your sneak peek. I'll be in touch soon with your online proofing information.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Dorean Pope Photography - Zilker Play Date - (Austin Child & Infant Photographer)

What a fun morning! I did a play date portrait session this morning with a group in downtown Austin. Six moms (and a couple of dads) got together early to let their children play and I tagged along. While the kids were playing, each child took a turn coming over to do a mini portrait session with me. Below are some of my favorites.

Play Date moms - I hope you enjoy! The rest of the portraits will be available in a few days and can be accessed by clicking on the online proofing link on the right hand side of this page. It was great to meet all of you!

** If you are interested in hosting a play date session for your mom's group please give me a call or shoot me an e-mail to set one up! Every participant receives one free digital negative. **

Dorean Pope Photography - Sunny Day! - (Austin Child Photographer)

Yesterday was such a beautiful day. I couldn't help but grab my camera before heading out the back door to play. These shots were captured while Adalyn was wondering around the back yard enjoying her new found independance at being able to walk and collecting sticks. She seems to have an aversion to looking directly at me when I have the camera in front of my face. I have to trick her into it. She knows I'm up to something.
