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

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!  

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.

out-of-towners | dallas fort worth lifestyle photographer

i was so excited when i received a message from an old client that moved out-of-state a year and a half ago.  they were coming to town for a visit + wanted to book a family session…so i was finally able to meet their new little one in person!  i had only seen how beautiful she was + how grown up her big sister was getting in pictures.  when they broke the news to me awhile back that they were moving out-of-state i was so sad that i wouldn't get to be their family photographer anymore….i had photographed them on 3 separate occasions, including big sister's newborn session.  so i'm thinking maybe they should just plan an annual texas trip + we can do their family session each time they are here ;) yes, i like that plan!  or better yet, just move back to texas!

coldest day of the year | fort worth family photographer

you'd never be able to tell from the photos, but oh my goodness it was cold the day of this session (back in december)!  this was my first time meeting this sweet family + i give them props for braving the cold + wind.  i wasn't even sure i'd be able to click the shutter button on my camera because my fingers were so numb from the cold…haha!  but we found some shelter from the wind with some pretty light + moved along as quickly as we could.  Untitled-4parks_web22parks_web28parks_web30parks_web34parks_web35parks_web37parks_web41

old friends | dallas family photographer

this was a session that was long overdue.  and of all days, for some reason i chose today to blog their session, even though i did this session all the way back in december.  well, i just happened to look at the date just now as i was typing this + realized that today is this beautiful couple's wedding anniversary!  and oddly enough, that is exactly how i met them!  remember back in the wedding planning days, an online forum called the knot?  is that even still a popular thing??  i have no clue…haha!  but back then it sure was.  and that is exactly how i met bridgett + wayne.  it just so happened, that they were getting married at the same venue as us…and using almost all the same exact vendors.  and we were both planning from distances….i was in canada at the time + she was in connecticut, but we were both getting married in the dallas fort worth area.   we hit it off instantly + have been friends ever since….that was 10 years ago!  we have been through all life's big events together…weddings, babies, career changes….and FINALLY we were able to meet up over the christmas holidays while they were here visiting family so that i could take some photos of their beautiful family.  we were blessed with beautiful weather that day…okay okay….it was a little bit chilly, but beautiful for a december day!  thank you so much bridgett + wayne for trusting me to capture these memories for your sweet family.  i can't wait to see you all again!  and happy happy anniversary!!!  xoxodallas fort worth extended family photographerdallas fort worth family photographerdallas fort worth natural light photographerdallas fort worth lifestyle photographerdallas fort worth children's photographerdallas fort worth child photographerfort worth family photographermansfield family photographergrapevine family photographerflower mound family photographercoppell family photographergrapevine children's photographersouthlake children's photographerlewisville children's photographerburleson children's photographerfrisco children's photographernorth richland hills family photographerkeller family photographerplano family photographerdfw family photographergarland family photographerarlington family photographerdallas child photographer
