Summer's End : just because // northeast, tx portrait and lifestyle photographer


What is it, this golden sheer draping itself over us
Like silken tapestry painting the sky and everything below?
Tis the last drop of summer's light
Treasure it, children
Because sooner than you would like to believe
It is gone. 


You probably have already gathered how dearly I love these girls. I am both highly aware and extremely fond of every time they blink their long perfectly curled eyelashes, shining up those dazzling sapphire eyes. I giggle inside when they talk to me in their country accents so thick and rich like honey, molasses, and maple syrup combined. I can't help but smile when a frosty blonde tipped curl brushes over those round rosy cheeks. And when they smile back, sometimes mischievously, or shyly, or excitedly, or trustingly...I would freeze time, if I could, and just squeeze 'em until they couldn't take it, not a minute more. :)
Lack of front teeth. *sigh*
This is a favorite Maggie face of mine. :)
This is Maggie's favorite Maggie face. 
Sometimes I wish I could see what is behind these dramatic looks...what beautiful thoughts are reeling in that mind of hers? :)
Perhaps you have noticed that things have been rather quiet around here...vlog wise. I haven't forgotten about it. :)
My Mam-maw has been very very sick this past month. We had scare after scare as she dealt with severe blood pressure irregularities which caused her to pass out and stop breathing multiple times through the past few weeks. She had a major operation to repair a main artery in her neck that was blocked. And she has spent more of her time in the hospital than not as of late. She is home for now, still taking it easy. The Lord has been very merciful to her and to all our family as we wait by her side. He has given us all peace, knowing that no matter what He determines to happen, it is perfect because it is His will. :)
As you can see, Graham is fixing her up just fine and so a vlog may be quite feasible in the near future. 
Thanks for the help, Graham. :)
Things don't really feel like fall around here yet. Maybe because Texas hardly has a true autumn. Its more like hot, Hot, HOT...then, Does it feel a little cooler to you? and BAM! It's winter, baby!! You didn't cut firewood?? It's December you fool, don't you know it gets cold?! Yeah. We don't have a gradual textbook transition from summer to fall to winter. It's all discombobulated and timed very...uniquely. Despite the lingering of the scorching heat at midday, I can feel summer singing its swan song as tans fade, the days get shorter and the mornings  and nights are crisp and chilly. It has been quite a summer indeed. And this fall is promising to be just as delightful. :)

  11. Could those girls get any more precious?!? I think not. These photos were just so adorable, and cute, and definitely captured the last few days of summer. 4, 11, and 20 were my favorites :D
