McG Mini Sessions : Fall 2013, Pt. 3

Happy Friday, everyone! Can you even BELIEVE next week it’ll be Thanksgiving?!? It seems like this year speeds up the closer we get to the end, and the holidays are bearing down on us awful quick. We’re looking forward to a little bit of a slow down after the first of the year, but it’s full speed ahead for McG until Christmas!

We’re rounding out our blog week with the second half of Sunday’s McG marathon day, part three in our series of Fall 2013 Celebration mini sessions! If you didn’t see yesterday’s post, that definitely deserves a look-see. 🙂 All told, we photographed 23 families during this season’s mini session event, and each & every one of you was a complete joy. We’re so blessed that so many of you keep coming back year after year, and excited to see a few new faces every single time. We hope to see ALL of you back again at some point next year!

Please note, we only offer these family mini session events twice a year… once in the spring, and once in the fall. We’ll be announcing a date soon for the Spring 2014 Celebration mini session event, so if you want to be on the email blast and get info on that marathon before the dates become public, EMAIL US! chelsea@mcgowanimages.com will get you the scoop. 🙂

We hope you love these few shots from each of our afternoon sessions!!

This precious family absolutely made. our. day. Kyla and LD love their girls so much, and both the daughters were so sweet & excited about picture time. A complete joy to photograph!

Lauren & her family were the last to book in this mini session marathon, and took over a spot left open by cancellation. We were so excited to get to meet them, and help them celebrate (early) their first Christmas together!

We photographed Arly & Ryan’s wedding in 2010, and maternity & newborn portraits when Little Beau made his debut! We were bummed that Ryan’s work schedule kept this session from being a party with the whole family, but it was still really fun to have some “Mommy & Me” playtime. Beau is just SO deliciously cute!

Tammy’s family wins the award for driving the furthest to see us this year! This family came from Oklahoma, and enjoyed all the fall colors still on Dallas area trees. The youngest brother thought his parents looking at each other lovingly was just hilarious, and coincidentally, we thought the same thing about this photo. 🙂

This is the third time we’ve photographed the Bell family, and I couldn’t believe how much the kids have grown since we saw them in the spring. The baby just isn’t a baby anymore!! We love getting to watch these little people grow, and always enjoy a chance to photograph their beautiful parents.

Jenny & Lexi were another fun Mommy & Me session… how beautiful are these girls??

Matt, Kylie, Trent & puppy dog Remington booked a double session so they’d have even more beautiful photos to choose from… this is another family we just LOVE seeing over and over again!

Trent is getting more & more handsome as he grows up… and seems to be enjoying picture time more every year. 🙂

And we ended our 2013 mini sessions with another couple who’s no stranger to this blog… engagement, bridal, wedding, and three mini sessions make them McG PROS. I think at this point, Al might even be starting to enjoy it. 🙂

Kendall, if that photo above isn’t your new profile picture for EVERYTHING, I’ll be upset. You look phenomenal.

And that’s it! While there are still a half dozen weddings and a few portrait sessions coming your way this year, mini sessions for 2013 are officially wrapped! Thank you SO much to all the wonderful families who continue to come back to us year after year, and that tell your friends so that we see new faces. We can’t overstate how much we appreciate your continued support and loyalty to McG, and we hope you love this year’s images as much as we do!

    I really love all of these families’ pictures! I think the bright Fall colors (especially the yellows) were gorgeous. And I agree with what you said to Kendall, EVERYONE should make one of their pictures as a profile picture on FB. Awesome job!! 🙂
