Once again, I’ve fallen behind on my blogging. It’s been a long winter at the WildHouse – one cold after another both for the WildBaby and the WildFolks. We’re digging out of the trenches though, and I’m hoping that with summer rapidly approaching (who am I kidding, it’s here already), we’ll be home free for a while. No colds means that I can sit at the computer and hopefully play catch up and show what readers I have left some lovely photos that I have stacking up. Aaaaannnyway, without further adieu -

The Wilhelm’s were referred to me by a local Austin Design blogger who I’m a big fan of and has shown me a lot of love over the last couple of years. As most of my readers know – my name, Tali, is quite unique and you don’t hear it every day. What are the odds that I end up with a kiddo who shares my name (or close – Talia?). Pretty awesome if you ask me :)

Anyway – I think it’s pretty obvious how cute this family is from the pictures, so I’ll just let them do the rest of the talking.

Funny story about how I met this adorable family. They were referred to me by previous clients, and contacted me way back in the fall and decided to wait until spring to schedule. I started music class this past winter with my own daughter, and at our first class – sitting across from us is a little girl who had her name written on the bottom of her shoes and it’s unique enough that I remembered it from their email. I ask her mamas if they’re who contacted me and sure enough!! Did you follow that? We finally get to schedule our session, get to talking and find out that we have a whole bunch of friends in common as well! I’m convinced that once you live in Austin long enough, life becomes a game of the six degrees of separation if not fewer degrees.

Anyway, sweet baby Kiyah is as precious as can be! She just turned one and enjoyed running around the park and watching the peacocks during our session. It was still a bit chilly, but a wonderful day! I also learned that if I try real hard and squack like a peacock, I might get a good smile or two out of a wee.

The first picture below was the first I looked at from our session. Could it be any cuter? Every time I look at it I can’t help but giggle :)

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is finding out that clients and friends like my work so much that they refer others to me. I have been fortunate enough that every single one of my clients to date has been through word-of-mouth which is a huge honor. Jeanine and Scott were referred to me by a dear friend (and customer) and we recently did a Downtown-Austin engagement portrait session and had a blast! I really love having the opportunity to do engagement sessions prior to weddings. Not only do we get to capture fun moments on film (…er…memory card), but we get to spend some time getting to know each other and getting couples used to being in front of the camera prior to your big day which makes wedding pictures a lot more fun and easy! Anyway – I know Jeanine is waiting on the edge of her seat for these pictures, so enough of the small talk – and on to the fun :)
