I survived family photos!

Being on the camera side of most photography sessions, it isn’t often that I can appreciate the struggle that my clients go through in preparing for their own sessions. We finally got around to our own family photos this spring and here is what it took…

  • 17 trips to different stores to find coordinating outfits.

  • 1 last minute trip the day of the session because I decided I didn’t like MY outfit.

  • 5 whining kids who had to be bribed with ice cream.

  • 2 locations changes because… I don’t recall why. At the time it seemed important.

  • 1 pair of forgotten spanx. I mean… how did I forget to put those on?!?!

  • 7 sweaty heads of hair that needed brushing or touch ups.

  • 3 rescheduled dates for sick kids.

  • 1 very hot doggie who was way more interested in walking the trails.

  • 4 advil to stave off the headache of coordinating this event.

  • 1 very patient, loving and dedicated partner who knew how important this was to me.

  • 1 amazing photographer and friend, Megan, who made it all possible.

  • Finally $73 spent on fast food and ice cream to satisfy the angry lawn gnomes… I mean my beautiful and cooperative children.

The Rutledge Family Bluebonnet Mini Session

We were so honored to be welcomed into this beautiful home to capture their newest arrival. Big sister was the sweetest!

Newborn Session

This family was just the sweetest to work with. While they had a simple newborn session, their sweet boy was so sleepy that we were able to do so much!

Love getting to document a new baby soon to arrive! This sweet family has been a joy to photograph over the last year!

The Six Month Session of Reverie

Two Year Old Session in Studio

The Birth of Scarlett Elanor

It was truly an honor to watch this mama work so hard and beautifully to bring Scarlett into the world. We had an amazing team at the Dallas Birth Center and she rocked her VBAC! I still can’t get over how incredibly beautiful she is… good work mom and dad. You were quite the team!

The Family Session of the Alexander Family

The Birth of Ford & Davis

Since the day I met these two beautiful women, I knew they were meant for each other.  Years later, they are now a family of 4 and I could not be more thrilled.  While these two little babies weren't supposed to arrive for a little while longer, they just couldn't wait.  Arriving at 31 weeks 6 days, they were 4lbs 1oz and 4lbs even and are so strong!  Ford, their son, was born first and Davis, their daughter was born second.  I can't wait to watch them grow with these two amazing mamas and a huge family that loves them.  Welcome sweet babies!
