This sweet family was so much fun to have in the studio! We had a ton of fun and captured some beautiful moments as well. They are baby planners, so I can't wait to see how much Henry has grown at his six month session!

I was thrilled to be a part of this sweet couple's birth. They were expecting a "surprise" and were so excited when they met their son for the first time! Mom and dad were a fabulous team during labor. I especially love it when a couple has a ton of family waiting on the arrival of the baby. This was no exception! Everyone, grandparent's, aunts, uncles, friends, etc were all waiting for this baby to arrive. The excitement was contagious! It was an honor to be there to welcome this sweet baby.

I was so excited when I found out this sweet family was expecting again. I had photographed the birth of William a few years back and couldn't wait to meet the newest edition. I was out the door in the middle of the night only to walk into the birth 20 seconds after sweet Samantha was born. Everyone was shocked to see how quickly Miss Samantha wanted to be in this world! I am just so glad I made it when I did to capture these precious moments.

So this sweet family has had to wait very patiently to see their birth sneak peeks since the server transfer managed to take down the blog! We are back up and running and I am so excited to share the arrival of Spencer. What a sweet and CHUNKY little man he is and I am honored to have been there for his speedy arrival. Mom and Dad were an amazing team and mom was able to acheive her desired birth. Welcome, Spencer! You are a lucky boy to have such a beautiful family!

{Joshua ~ December 2, 2011} Richardson- Plano- Anna Birth Photographer

I was so excited to help welcome this little man into the world. This sweet family has six girls at home and were overjoyed to discover baby number 7 was a boy! I was blessed to be there when they had their 6th daughter, so it was so much fun to be there again. Little Joshua came out strong and mighty and had an opinion for sure. He may have been on the smaller side, but he wasn't going to let that stop him. He is just simply delicious and I can only imagine he is never set down with all those sisters wanting to love on him all the time. Congrats, you guys! He is in the best home! krbirth_web_1

Birth of Caleb ~ November 6, 2011 {Frisco- Plano- Carrollton Birth Photographer}

I had the honor of photographing Caleb's birth! I was a little worried about making to the hospital in time since he was number 3 and his brother and sister had arrived very quickly. Thankfully it all worked out perfectly. He came when he was ready and we were all ready for him! Not only was the birth beautiful, but he was too! Not to mention a little chunkier than we thought he would be. His mom and dad were so thrilled to meet him and it was a pleasure to get to photograph their first moments together. jsbirth_web_1

I have been lucky enough to photograph this sweet little boy since birth.  I couldn't belive that he is already one!  With a very warm fall, we were able to really enjoy the evening shooting.  We even took a dip in the creek! esoneyear_web_1

Cooper~ July 27, 2011 {Dallas Birth Photography}

It was such a pleasure to get to help this sweet family welcome their first baby!  This mom did an AMAZING job and was able to acheive her beautiful natural birth with the hel of her sweet and awesome hubby.  They were a great team and I was so glad to get to witness their miracle.  Not to mention that we had a pretty amazing OB too.  Thanks Dr. Hunt! So without too much more, I know everyone is waiting for pictures!  Here they are!

Getting So Big {Dallas Child Photographer}

This sweet boy has been on my baby plan for the last year and I so loved getting to know him and his family. I was excited to get to photograph his one year session and to get the whole family together as well. It was a beautiful day at the Dallas Arboretum. Spring is wonderful! dsoneyear_web_1

Welcome Austin John ~ April 8, 2011 {Dallas- Coppell- Grapevine Birth Photographer}

I love this sweet family! I have had the honor of photographing them since they were expecting their first baby and they have continued on our baby plan and have now welcomed baby number two. They are my biggest cheerleaders and I feel so blessed to know them. This birth was beautiful and went just a smoothly as you could hope. Mom was relieved to not have to push for hours and even more amazed that she pushed for only a few minutes! What a blessing.

Baby Austin was born and almost immediately started looking around. He was truly aware of his amazing parents. Praying that you guys enjoy these images as much as I do!

Welcome Beckett ~ March 28, 2011 {Plano- Dallas- Allen Birth Photographer}

I was so excited to attend this birth because it meant that this sweet boy was coming out and giving his mama some relief! We all expected him to be big, but not quite as big as he was. It was so much fun to be with this family while they rejoiced in this new addition. I think the funnest moment was when the big brother and big sister got to meet their new brother. My favorite comment was when sweet Lydia announced that her baby brother was "Eating mom all up" when she saw him nurse. She was so concerned! I just love the innocence of these babes. It makes my heart swell. Well here are the sneaks of this sweet boy, who weighed in at 10lbs 8oz! Enjoy!

{Cashel~ March 21, 2011} Dallas- Highland Park- Downtown Birth Photographer

I was so surprised to hear from this beautiful family last Monday. Apparently Little Cashel wanted to make his arrival about 3 weeks early! I wasn't complaining as he arrived on a gorgeous first spring day. It was a fast and beautiful labor and I was so honored to be there. They also had the support of their amazing doula, Sarah whose birth I was also honored to photograph. I look forward to seeing him again next week for our newborn session. Welcome little man!

{Teygan ~ January 26, 2011} Plano- McKinney- Dallas Birth Photography

I was honored to be asked to attend the birth of this sweet boy. I was there two years ago when his big brother Noah was born. I love getting to work with a family for the second time. The birth was beautiful and went as perfectly as we could have hoped. I was so happy to get to see big brother Noah get to meet "Baby Teygan". What an exciting day for everyone. Enjoy a few images from this beautiful birth! kbbirth_web_1

{Walking Already!} Frisco- Plano- Highland Park Child Photographer

This little man is on my baby plan and we have managed to get a little behind.  I didn't realize HOW behind we were until he showed up at our "9 month" session walking!  Since he had already had his one year birthday, we just did some fun one year type shots.  He was so sweet toddling around the park and patient with us as we made him swap outfits in the heat.   He is just a gorgeous baby and I love photographing him!  Enjoy you guys! hrweb_1

{Fall at the Arboretum} Dallas- Plano- Frisco Family Photographer

This time last year I was at the Arboretum with this little family. They were expecting their first little girl. I can't believe a year has already gone by. Amazing how fast time goes! I love, love, loved this session. Not only is "Baby Brooke" the cutest dang thing you have ever seen, the weather and the colors at the Dallas Arboretum were just incredible. What a fun session! Enjoy! web_1

{Kennedy ~ September 12, 2010} Arlington- Irving- Grapevine Birth Photographer

Sweet Kennedy arrived as scheduled to an amazingly loving family. Her dad, being a high school football coach, asked that she come inbetween game weeks and she did! If she wasn't going to have him wrapped around her finger already, that would have done it. She came out with the most gorgeous curly hair and an attitude to match! She was strong and fiesty! She knew what she wanted (to eat) and was going to let everyone know about it. It was great! It is always such an honor to see the instant bond of a new family and this was no exception. Congrats you guys!

{Maddox ~ August 5, 2010} Anna- McKinney- Allen Birth Photographer

August and September have been full of repeat clients. I absolutely love it when I get to work with a family a second (or more) time and see how their family has grown. Baby Maddox was no exception! I was there when his big sister was born. She was born in the hospital, so you can imagine my excitement when Mom announced she was expecting again and this time planning a homebirth. Double yeah! Her labor wasn't too long, but she did work very hard. She was strong and beautiful and baby Maddox is just as incredible. She had a great support team and was surrounded by people who loved her and baby Maddox a whole lot. I think these images show just that. Enjoy!

{Allie~ August 17, 2010} Frisco- McKinney- Little Elm Birth Photographer

Little Miss Allie decided that she would cause us all distress over her method of arrival. After weeks of being breech and refusing to budge, her Mama went in to the hospital to see if they could flip her. Much to our delight, they were able to do so! I headed up to the hospital a little sooner than might have been necessary, but I had a feeling that this little girl would get a move on and come out quickly. Boy was I right! It wasn't 2 hours later and she was in her mama's arms. It was quite a whirlwind, but this lovely family worked beautifully together.

The exciting part? I was their when their first baby came into this world 4 years ago. I couldn't believe that I was sitting there having a conversation with "baby" Andrew. Time flies way too quickly. Thanks again you guys. I wouldn't have missed it for anything!

{Jaiden~ August 25, 2010} Dallas- Carrollton- Plano Birth Photographer

Jaiden didn't arrive the way his family hoped he would arrive, but he sure came into a lot of love! I was so honored to be there to support this family and to capture these special moments for them. He came just a day before his due date and came out at a whopping 9lbs 3oz! We couldn't believe how cute and chunky he was. What a love. I was able to see him this last weekend for his newborn session and he was just yummy as I remembered. His family is loving their new arrival and I hope things continue to go smoothly as they transition into life with the newest member!
