Sara Before 8am

Before 8am sessions are back!

I’m excited to share with you Sara’s Saturday morning today. We shot this on Valentine’s Day weekend, while Sara, her husband, and her twin 2-year-olds had a leisurely morning making pancakes (pink and heart-shaped for the holiday, even). Check out what Sara’s morning looks like.


And you can also go read what she says about her mornings on the Denver Metro Moms Blog today.

Donna Before 8am

Sunday morning at Donna’s house. We shot this back in May, but time got away from me and I never got around to blogging them. So now as I’m about to start sharing a bunch of new before 8am sessions (I can’t wait!), I thought I’d go back and post this one to get things started.

Donna cracks me up because she has a very dry sense of humor and is very direct and she tells it like it is. She’s a interior designer with an art history background. Here’s a Sunday morning in her house.


Going outside to check on the ladybug house that they set up.


No ladybugs. 🙁


Only trophy animal head I’ve ever liked!


Making cinnamon rolls for breakfast.


Looking up what time the museum opens that they were planning to visit later.


A little modesty.


When you can be measured on the kids’ giraffe height chart. Short people problems. LOL.

Jennifer before 8am


Jennifer won this before 8am session from the Houston Moms Blog contest. This summer morning, Jennifer was getting ready to go to work, her son was getting ready for school, and her husband was getting ready to work from home for the day.

And the cat is named Peeve. Best name ever.

Jennifer wrote a guest post on the Houston Moms Blog today about her morning. Check it out!

Win a Before 8am Session!


I love this photo series. That is probably obvious (or why else would I be shooting them?), but I have loved seeing the response to these sessions over the past few months from other people who love them and who connect with them in the same way I do.

I am super excited to announce today that I am giving away a Before 8am session over on the Houston Moms Blog this week. You can have your VERY OWN Before 8am session (if you live in the Houston area), and the opportunity to share it with all of the awesome Houston Moms Blog readers as a guest blogger.

Enter HERE for your chance to win. The contest will be open until Friday.

Good luck!!
