Zaida’s 7th Birthday Party

Well, I may be a little bit late, but I am happy to finally post Zaida’s seventh birthday party! We held it at House of Hadley Kate with a cake by Reverie Bakeshop in Richardson. The girls had a blast with the American Girl inspired party, complete with makeover. Here are some of my favorite […]

Sparkle and Sass – Little Dancers

It’s hard to believe that Z is already starting her fourth year of dance! This year will be really exciting, because both she and K, her BFF, made the company at their dance school. So, we’ll get to go to competitions and other fun things. Lots and lots of dancing this year. But, Z loves […]

Zaida’s 5 Year Portraits

People often assume I take endless perfect photos of my own children. But, the reality is it often feels like a case of ‘the cobbler’s children have no shoes’. Last year, neither of my poor children had more than 5-10 minutes of ‘official’ birthday portraits. Life just gets in the way sometimes. But this is […]

Zaida’s 5th Birthday – Gymnastics Party

This year was my easiest, and least DIY party I’ve thrown to date for my kiddos. I normally love to DIY all sorts of things, but this year was so easy, it made me uncomfortable. I’m that type! We had her party at ASI gymnastics, which was so much fun to watch with the kids […]

Zaida’s Cinderella 4th Birthday + FREE Cinderella Party Printables

Zaida has been in love with Cinderella since Christmas of 2013, and she told me out of the blue one day that she wanted a Cinderella birthday party for her fourth birthday. I was all for it, since a) it wasn’t Frozen and b) we did pirates last year, so I thought I’d be fun […]

Zaida’s (very belated) 3 Year Pirate Portraits – Plano Children’s Photographer

I actually shot these back in January, before Zaida’s third birthday. It’s September now, in case you hadn’t noticed. I’m finally blogging them! It’s amazing how much she’s already changed since back in January. It won’t be much longer before I’m thinking of four year pictures. Argh, matey, are you ready for a pirate adventure? […]

Little Bity Ballerinas – Plano Child Photographer

Zaida just recently finished her first year in dance class. Of course, there was a recital and a recital costume. To stretch our the costume use, I decided to take Zaida and her BFF Kiera (who you might recognize) out for some photo fun. It doesn’t get much cuter than this! Thanks for stopping by!

Zaida’s Pirate Birthday Party

I’m finally getting around to sharing some photos of Zaida’s party with you. It’s hard to be lead pirate AND take photos at the same time (so I suggest you hire someone for big parties that you value photos from!) but I did snap a few. I’ll share details under all the photos for anybody […]

Happy Third Birthday, Zaida!

Words cannot begin to express how much I love this little person. She never ceases to amaze me, amuse me, and adore me. She is everything I could never have imagined her to be – just beyond perfect. I am excited to see how she continues to grow this next year and every year after […]

Two and a Half Going on Sixteen – Plano Child Photography

Everyday she heads further and further away from being a baby. It’s amazing to look back at the photos and see how much she’s grown. I wanted to do some photos in honor of her passing the official two and a half year mark (too old to refer to in months anymore!). The first few […]
