She's about as cute and sweet as they come, and she recently turned one. Stephanie was my instant friend at our photo session, I absolutely loved taking her pictures! She loves her rocking horse, clapping her hands, and making friends with everyone. It doesn't take long to be smitten by her, believe me! And here are a few of many shots from our session. It was hard to narrow it down to post a few since she couldn't possibly take a bad picture--she is about as photogenic as anyone I've seen!

Lieutenant Brady

Here we have a recently commissioned officer in the US Army AND a law graduate from Tulane University--commissioned one day and graduated the next. And in the midst of it all, he wanted to surprise his wife with some official photos. Smart man--what woman wouldn't love some shots of her man all decked out in uniform?

Button, Button, who wants a button?

A dear client of mine recently went above and beyond and created an awesome little blog button for me and now I'm sharing it with you! If you'd like my button on your blog, copy and paste the code on my sidebar and add it to your blog or website and voila! you've got yourself my button--and I thank you all for supporting Becky Thalgott Photography! And thank you, Erika, for the fun blog button!

Dr. Mangum

Watch out, world...there's a new dentist in town! As of last Saturday, this guy here is officially Dr. Aaron Mangum, DDS--and what a happy day for him and his family. It was so fun for me to be there and observe all this amazing family support. They poured in from miles away to be there for his big day and it was awesome! Congratulations, Aaron. We are so happy for you. What an achievement!

Dr. Mangum was definitely the man of the hour and a big hit with all those nieces and nephews. And check out this fantastic family all there for the big day! It was impressive, to say the least!

Poor little Calyn wanted nothing to do with the guy in the crazy robe and hat--hence the crying in the family photo. :( But no worries, she did warm up to him a little later on!

Congrats again, Mangums! And good luck on your next big adventure!

Sweet little Emy! Big blue eyes and gorgeous red hair--what a beautiful combination. She is definitely going to be breaking hearts in a few years. And lucky me, I got to photograph her at 5 weeks old!

DeGraff Family

On Saturday, I headed West on I-10 and landed myself in Baton Rouge at the State Capitol Building, for the sole purpose of meeting and photographing this family. And oh my goodness, was it fun! I knew I was going to have a great time as soon as I met them and saw all that personality. Definitely made my job easy. Doesn't get much better than that! Hope you enjoy, Erika!
