Our Friends {By:JJ & Lindsey Vavra}

The first of October we had the privilege to go to New York to shoot portraits and hang our with our dear friends that moved there in July.  We miss our sweet friends, but SO enjoyed getting to see where the live.  It is the cutest little town and fall had decorated it beautifully.    JJ and I loved all the walking we got to do in the fresh crisp air.

While we were there we drove to Penn State, to document their family at the college and got to go see an amazing football game.    What a fun time we had!

Here are some of my favorite images from our friends sessions in their town.

Sweet brother and sister!  They have grown so much!

Sweet baby Anna!  I miss that infectious smile!

So fun!

She is sweet like her mamma.

Seriously my favorite image!!!!

…..All because two people fell in love…… :)

So sweet…I love this one.

Thats all for now!

Sweet Twins {By:Lindsey & JJ Vavra}

I LOVED getting to shoot and snuggle these precious twins.  It was double the fun!  Their parents and grandmother were gracious enough to let me just take over and feed them and change them when the need occurred. So, I  enjoyed the little breaks where I got to sit and just feed one of them!  It was AWESOME and they did great!  They really enjoyed being in the bucket together, once I got them in.  I think they would have stayed in there for hours.  And they enjoyed laying on the soft blankets while I shot images with the heater between my knees blowing on them, nice and snugly. :)

Thank you P family for allowing me to document your precious babies at this stage in their life.  I cannot wait until their next session, but will not wish the time away for you :) Enjoy them!!!

Here are a FEW faves!

My fave…I think.

Seriously, so precious.

Big Sis!

Lil’ brother

Fresh, I love this.  And am happy to say neither of them tinkled on the other :)

Close up. :)

The Holiday Season is here!

The Holiday Season is upon us. Can you believe it?

Brief  “cool” fronts have blessed us with a slight glimpse of fall.  But before for we know it will be Christmas.  I’m not ready!  Are you???

Full of Joy Photography has officially booked all evening and weekends through the 2011-year.

However, we  have a few Mini Sessions, Weekday Newborn and Weekday Children Sessions still available.

Please contact us at or at 956.536.1094 to schedule your session.


Miss M {By: Lindsey Vavra/ Texas Professional Photographer}

Again, I have to say what a blessing it was to meet another wonderful new family and their PRECIOUS little girl.

They were all a delight to work with!  Miss M was so entertaining and had a hundred different expressions!!!  Just looking at her images make my day a little brighter!

My sweet Carterman came with me in the afternoon to assit me with the family portion of the session and I must say he was great help.  Miss M seemed to like him, but her favorite people are her mommy and daddy.  Not until the session was over did she lean for me to hold her. Too funny, I guess she likes me better without the giant camera :)

Thank you Sweet M family for letting us spend some time with you!  It has truly been a pleasure!  We look forward to celebrating Miss M’s 1st Birthday with you!

Mr. E {By:Lindsey & JJ Vavra/Texas Professional Photographers}

Here is another new wonderful family that we were blessed to meet!  JJ and I loved working and visiting with them :)  Such a sweet couple and precious little boy!!!!

We did get some super cute family shots too, but for now here are some of just Mr. E.

Thank you both for allowing us to come into your home and document your precious little man at this stage of his life!  We hope you love all of your images!

P.S. I must say I love going to clients homes for their newborn sessions and getting to use pieces from their homes to make personalized artowrk. :)

Mr. E’s in his cute train car.  Love it!

Such a happy little boy…

Close up of those beautiful features :)

Mr. E, you are the best 6 week old that we have ever worked with!  Thank you for letting us have fun with you!

Miss A {By:Lindsey & JJ Vavra/Brownsville,TX Professional Photographers}

Wow!  I am humbled and grateful by the amazing new families that we have had the privilege to work with these past couple of weeks.  I am constantly being reminded how blessed we our to have our photography business.  Our lives would not be as cheerful and full had we never been able to meet our clients.  We have made so many long lasting friendships…


Here is one of our recent  blessings, Miss A.

This precious 2 year old was so much fun and so friendly.  JJ and I would have gladly taken her home with us and called her our own.

Here is a sneak peek from her session.  It was sure hard to pick.

Thank you Momma M for letting us capture memories for you!  It was truly a pleasure!  We hope you love all your images!

Fun at the beach{By:Lindsey & JJ Vavra/ South Padre Island-Professional Photographers}

Here is the other half of kiddos from a fun beach session.

This brother and sister sure loved each other.  They were so sweet and cute together.  Little sister reminded me SO much of our little Colin.  Her brother and cousins followed her around like she was the leader of the pack.  So cute!

We LOVED working with ALL of the kiddos!

Big giggles!

LOVE this….

Just having fun.  Someone was fighting smiling for us….can you guess who??? What a doll.

OH gee…I think this is my favorite of these two…it was sure hard to decide.

Cousins!  What a fun and sweet group of kids!

These little pumpkins did not let me capture too many shots of their sweet faces and smiles.  Might be the age :) But I sure love this image and their cute little curls.

Again, I LOVE these too!

Thank you all for letting us have some fun with you!

Okay, I had to post another…..
