a mother's love | dallas fort worth family photographer

moms are usually the ones holding the camera + taking all the pictures, which means they never actually make it in any of the photos!  i loved doing this mommy + me session for my sweet friend + her adorable babes.  

alive | fort worth maternity photographer

i'm here.  i'm alive.  and i'm blogging.  don't quite know where to start, but here we go!  first up is this sweet family....and i'll also be blogging their newborn session that i did in their beautiful home.

twenty | dallas fort worth family photographer

twenty....that's the number of clients i had in this awesome extended family photo session!  i'd be lying if i said i wasn't just a little bit nervous before the session....20 people, that's a little out of my comfort zone!  but i loved the challenge + to be honest, they made it so easy.  look at how gorgeous this family is!  every single one of them!  and they were truly the sweetest.  lowe_hull04026

baby blues | fort worth baby photographer

keep scrolling down.....then stop + just look at those gorgeous eyes!  this sweet baby girl is just about the cutest little human being i've ever seen.  such a petite little thing with piercing blue eyes.  i could photograph her all day long.  i'm sure this isn't the last time you'll see her on my blog!

live love lake | dallas fort worth family photographer

sweet baby lake louise was diagnosed with Ebstein's Anomaly at 36 weeks gestation. She was born at 37.5 weeks + has had 3 open heart surgeries since birth.  she is such a trooper!  she is on the road to recovery + doing so well!  i was so honored earlier this summer when i received an email inquiry from her sweet momma, arden, who also happens to a very talented photographer in this area.  we had a great time at her session + i loved getting to meet her crew!  arden is such an inspiration....running a successful photography business, flipping houses, building their beautiful dream home, running back + forth to doctors appointments, and she has four kids!!  basically, she's super mom.  check out her gorgeous family.  and after that, go follow lake's journey on Facebook! that's a wrap!! lol

photographing photographers | dallas family photographer

i can't tell you how many fellow photographers i've photographed this year....lots!  it's always very flattering when another photographer chooses you to document their sweet little family.  especially when they drive all the way in from out of town!  talk about pressure!!  i've known this sweet talented girl elisabeth ross for a few years now through the online photography world....so it was great to finally be able to meet her in person.

catching up + all that stuff

i did it again....i've neglected my blog.  i used to be so good about blogging every single session in a timely manner.  but i'll admit, finding that perfect balance between work + family is a difficult thing!  i find myself picking + choosing....unfortunately blogging is not at the top of my priority list, so it doesn't get done as often as it should.  aside from photography, i also do branding/logo design, freelancing for american greetings, i'm working on releasing a set of film-inspired presets for acr + lightroom, will be launching christmas card templates shortly, i'm now offering online + in-person mentoring as well as a possibility of group workshops, and...oh yeah...did i mention i'm also a mom of 3 amazing little kiddos?  i am nearly completely booked for the rest of 2014 + i am fearing the fall season just a little bit!  between my husband working full-time + taking classes for his PhD,  and my kiddos in sports, i feel like i am slowly sinking!  the thought of hiring an assistant or intern has actually crossed my mind.....so if you know of anyone who might be interested, please have them contact me! anyways, enough with the boring stuff....here's a session of an adorable family from the spring that's been waiting to be blogged!  more sessions to come....at some point! 

perfection | dallas family photographer

gorgeous family?  check.  great wardrobe?  check.  awesome backyard location?  check.  sparkly bokeh?  check.  cooperative children?  check.  yup.  this session was perfection, from beginning to end.  and yet another session with a fellow local photographer, sabrina from sabrina gebhardt photography.  i think about 90% of my sessions in the past 2 months has been for fellow photographers!  and i am loving it!  

small world | fort worth family photographer

a year or two ago, after i had launched some of my first pre-made logos, this gorgeous momma purchased one from me.  little did i know that our kids would be attending the same school + she lived only about 2 miles away from me! lol  after a year of waiting in the after-school pick up car-line often just a few vehicles away from each other, i was finally able to photograph this beautiful family.  it's funny how small this crazy world is after all!  

picture frame family | dallas fort worth family photographer

this was my fourth session with this completely gorgeous family.  i mean, just look at them.  they are like the family in the picture that comes in a picture frame when you buy it from the store.  for real.  actually, one of their photos from our last session made it into a commercial for cardstore.com so they really are models! haha!  and not only are they a beautiful family, but they are the sweetest!!  amii is a fellow local photographer + her senior work is stunning!  along with trusting me to photograph her family, she also hired me to design her logo a few years back.  i am looking forward to photographing this family for many more years to come.
