The ~M~ Clan!

The best part of my job is seeing my families each year! Mr. Kylan and his parents came out last year about this same time. The was HOT, STICKY and OVERCAST. This was WINDY, COLD and SUNNY. :) Nevertheless....I had a blast and I hope you guys did too! Now...before you go to far down in the post...I have to claim now that this first picture is now one of my ALL time perfect is this!?

The ~B~ Family!

The B Family was great!!! I give them the honor of being the FASTEST regular session of all time! :) We were in and out in 30 minutes. Normally, I might be nervous about leaving a regular session in less than 30 minutes but when I got in my car...I had no doubts that I had MORE than enough shots to fulfill this session. These kiddos did not let me down! :) How super cute are they!!!!! Thanks mom and dad!

His, Hers and Theirs!

So....I know they have heard it tons of times and will continue to hear it in the future but Chunky Monkey got the opportunity to shoot DFW's own Brady Bunch! This wonderful couple is celebrating their recent engagement and included in the celebration is their 6 children! They were great! 3 girls who were all camera divas and 3 boys who where...well, BOYS! They had a blast running around and climbing on trees. This family is going to have nothing less than an exciting life ahead of them and I wish them all the best!

Expecting a little miracle..... will laugh at me but I told his dad-to-be that he needs to write a book or teach a class on how to be the BEST husband in the world! Talk about sweetness. He honestly treats his wife like a princess. It was amazing to watch them interact and I think you can really see their love thru their pictures. If she needed her shoes, not only did he bring them...he put them on her. It is to no surprise that they are expecting a little miracle and this little one is going to be sooo loved by mom and dad. I can't wait (not much longer) for our world to be graced with the birth of their baby! Hope you enjoy your pictures!

Pumpkin Patch Mini's- Dallas!

So...this year pumpkin patch mini sessions were quite eventful. With all the rain we had to reschedule and move people around. Thank you to all my families that were patience and underestanding! This winter is going to wash us all away! With that being said, though the rain, mud and chill.....all the kiddos had a great time and we got some super cute pictures!

See everyone next Chunky Monkey Photography's OWN pumpkin patch...I can't wait!

Chunky Monkey Warms DFW....Blanket Drive!




Chunky Monkey Warms DFW (or as much as we can!!!).

I have sat for months and tried to pick the best way to support my fellow families in the metroplex. One night while sitting at home right after a cold front moved though, I thought about turning on the heater (hence, I hate being cold!). I settled for just a blanket. Then I thought...what about those families that don't have that option of just grabbing a soft, warm blanket??!! What do they do? is the deal!

Chunky Monkey Photography is holding a BLANKET DRIVE for the month of November! If you have a session in November and bring a new unused blanket to your session, you will be entered into a drawing for a FREE session in 2010! For all those who do not have a session booked in November, you have a chance to help us too! During the dates of the CHRISTMAS MINI SESSIONS (Nov 14th, 15th and 22nd), we will be taking blankets at the location of the mini session and you will also be entered into the drawing for the FREE session in 2010. So please help Chunky Monkey warm DFW (or atleast some of it!). ALL Blankets will be donated to the Womans and Childrens Shelters in the area! Lets show them how awesome everyone is and warm all the moms and children in DFW!

(Location will be announced in November for those wanting to drop off blankets!)

If you have any questions, please do not hesistate to give me a call or send me an email!

AKA: Mommy, Photographer, Wife, etc!

This was a special maternity session for me. I did not know the family, yet I was super excited to meet them and capture this special time for them. Why was it so special? Kendra, aka: Mommy, is a photographer as well. She had called me and asked if I could be a part of this session. As a photographer myself, I totally understand the feeling of choosing someone else to photograph you family. I was honored that she asked me to do this for her. We had a blast and her little boy is just ohhhh soooo adorable! She already has her CD but I had to post my all time fav images from the session. Thank you Kendra for trusting me to be a part of your family for a short time and freezing this moment in time! :) Can't wait to meet Baby M! She should come out smiling! :)
