Dallas Child Photography

Acquaintances in Dallas often ask me if I recommend a photographer to capture their child’s baby photos. I see some great photos every week. I will say this: photography is deeply personal. You want to find a photographer who showcases work on their blog and website that really resonates with you. I personally adore the child photography work of Maria with Squaresville Studios. You may remember these baby photos she took of Texas months ago. Last week, my friend Sasha shared these photos below, from a recent photo shoot with Squaresville Studios. Love the bright colors! Sasha is a creative spirit with lots of energy. I believe these ultra modern shots capture her little boy’s fun spirit. These shots just portray ENERGY! Thanks so much for sharing, Sasha and Maria!

Jennifer Garner’s Baby Bump

UsWeekly reports that Jennifer Garner, 36, and husband Ben Affleck, 35, are expecting their second baby. We can see a baby bump in this picture for sure!

Daughter Violet, 2, is so cute; but her baby style is pretty basic. We think Jen and Ben should add a little pizazz to baby number two’s look. Because the family loves outdoor activities, we chose bright, sporty gear. The Bugaboo Bee is sleek and durable. Sold at Saks for $549.

These circles in square blankets from Land of Nod, $29, are cheerful and cozy!

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Debut Levi

Matthew McConaughey and girlfriend Camila Alves pose for OK Magazine with baby Levi Alves McConaughey.

They look fabulous. But A couple of things come to mind.

1. Does Matthew look a little scared/uncomfortable to you?
2. Is anyone else shocked he took the OK Magazine payout and did this cover shoot? Perhaps he is donating the money to charity, or saving it for Levi.

One minute, he is running shirtless on the beach, doing some sit-up maneuver on a picnic bench; and the next he is posing for the cover of a celeb magazine with his insta-family. We truly do wish them all the best!

And we cannot wait for Matthew to be seen carrying little Levi in this Gucci sling!

Available at Saks for $850.
