Back2School in STYLE!!

What started out as a sneak peek for me,
and the mom of this BEAUTIFUL young lady,
turned into too, too many ooooosss  and ahhhhs for me to just touch-up and share one or two photos...
In a mini-session,
the parents are given a choice among 7 images for their packages!
It was too hard for me to choose which 7 to use, so Mike helped me out!
These were his 7 favorite images from our MINI session!!!!

It's now 5 am and I've been up for about 30 minutes!
When I woke up I decided to crawl out of bed and take some serious action on some pictures I very recently took of my sweet lil' angel!
This was a major-mini session, felt like about 3-4 minutes (I'd say)...
But, I think she's ADORABLE here (I may be a bit biased tho :)

back to this morning.....
I had uploaded Pioneer Woman's actions some time ago and took a few minutes to apply one to each of these pictures...... cute, huh?  Which is your favorite???
