Maddie Dean Photography is SEARCHING!

I'm in the process of updating my portfolio, and in order to do so, I need guinea pigs. LOL.

I'm currently in need of:
1 Newborn Session
1 Big Dreamer Session (ages 2-10)
1 Tween session (ages 11-14)
1 High School Senior to serve as an ambassador for Maddie Dean Photography
2 Maternity Sessions
1 Family Session
2 Couples/Engagement Sessions (you can already be married, I won't tell)
1 Trash The Dress Session. I prefer bridal, but prom dress would work as well.

If you fit any of those descriptions, contact me to find out how you can book your discounted session.

Rainy Day

What do you do when it's rainy (and HOT) outside? You finish sewing an outfit then torture the new baby with pictures :)

Aunt Karen ROCKS!

We spent our morning at "Aunt Karens" swimming with some friends. Aiden is still pretty unsure of the water - you know that bothers his fishy-mama!! Mike has taught him how to jump in from the side, so that's all he wanted to do - ugh! I got tired of lifting his two-ton-soaking-wet-self out of the pool! Oh well, at least he had fun. I think all the kiddo did - even Maddie! Well, I guess she was having fun - she pretty much slept the entire time :)


(Thanks Aunt Karen - we had a BLAST!)

The Brittish are Coming! The Brittish are Coming!

Our next door neighbor is from England and has family visiting for a bit. They came over yesterday and asked if Aiden would like to swim in their pool with their grandkids. Of course we jumped on that idea! Even Miss Madeline got in for a bit(didn't last long, she was more interested in eating!) We had a wonderful time and were very honored that the White's allowed us to join in their family fun!!


Check out that Air!!

Nothing like Ice Cream to cool off after a long day in the pool!

Swimming is exhausting!

Hairbows & Rock Star Photographers

Wow, Madeline is already six weeks old - it's amazing how much she's changing! Little Lady is very alert now - and loves to follow Mike and I's voices! She's really such an easy baby - though I think she eats too much - but maybe that 's because I'm always feeding her. Mike calls her his little leach :) Aiden is still a super big brother though we're really having to watch him now - he likes to practice his WWF moves on sister - YIKES! I love watching my kiddos grow and change but it makes me sad to think about how fast time is passing.... I try really hard to enjoy every moment - the good and the bad!

Independence Day at Palm Beach

We didn't have big plans for the 4th so we took the kiddos and met up with some friends at Palm Beach Moody Gardens in Galveston. It started out as a beautiful day even though Aiden took a bit to get used to the water - he was in his typical toddler fussy mood! Once Mike took him to the sprinkler part of the park he went crazy! Even Miss Madeline got into the water for the 1st time. (rant - why do they not make swim diapers smaller than 16 lbs and swim suits smaller than 12 months?!?) Aiden really loved the slides! We were only there 2 short hours before huge rain clouds rolled in and forced us to go home - we didn't even get a replacement pass! Oh well, it was fun for a little bit.

Fishy Kisses!

You can clearly see why our fun was cut short!

One whole Month

Wow, time is truly flying by for us. Miss Madeline will be a month old tomorrow and it simply doesn't seem possible! Where did the last four weeks GO? She's a wonderful baby - sleeps well, eats a lot and is becoming very alert. Her big brother simply adores her and if the truth be known - he's too much help!! I've taken a small break from Maddie Dean Photography to be able to enjoy my baby moon and our new family. I'll be back to taking pictures soon though. In the meantime, you all just get to enjoy sneak peaks at my baby girl!


Aiden loves kissing on his sister

Hope she keeps those baby blues!

Sharing a little snuggle time before naps!

Told you he's a lot of help!

Sweet Kiddos!
