Highland Park

The Hinze Family Session

When you have four kids and a super busy life, it takes you a long time to finally get your family session scheduled.  But when it happens, magic!  It was so much fun and the kids did great.  We loved the creek in Highland Park and enjoyed the touch of summer we had in the fall.

dallas area baby photographer- chloie

This was the first time I had met sweet Chloie and her family and we had so much fun! We ended up at the Arboretum on a very warm day and despite the crazy humidity, little Chloie was amazing. I loved the colors they chose and how beautiful Chloie looked in her dress. Six months is such a fun and interactive age... the perfect time for a session. Enjoy a few of their images!

dallas studio child photographer- ella

Sweet Ella is so much fun to photograph!  She came in for a studio photography session in our natural light Dallas studio.  She is fun and playful, but does a great job of interacting with the camera as well.  I have loved photographing her at her newborn session and she was just as beautiful in these portraits. 

dallas studio newborn photographer- laney, sammy & jules

After getting to photograph Laney and Sammy's newborn sessions and meeting Jules when she first arrived, it was an honor to shoot her newborn session as well.  She came to our Dallas natural light studio for her individual portraits.  They have a stunning home in Rockwall, so for the portraits of all three kiddos, we photographed them in their home.  Not only are the more comfortable, but we were able to incorporate their home in the photographs and shoot all three kiddos outdoors.  They just love their new baby sister which made it so fun to photograph them. 

dallas studio child photographer- gabryella

Gabryella and her parents came into the studio for her four year old session.  It was a gorgeous Texas day so after spending some time playing in the studio (and modeling A LOT of Matilda Jane clothing) we went to the Bishop Arts district for a fun lunch at a local diner.  This family is so full of love and play and so this worked perfectly for them.  I love being able to photograph in a variety of places that perfectly capture the personality of a family.

dallas studio newborn photographer- max, mason & marleigh

These three kiddos are so much fun!  Having photographed both boys as newborns, it was so exciting to meet their little sister.  They are the best siblings and just love her so much.  She will have to work to keep up with them!  We photographed in their Lucas, Texas home as well as in our natural light Dallas studio.  The boys were great and little Marleigh was a perfect angel.

dallas area child photographer- tyler, justin & aiden

These three boys joined me in Highland Park for an outdoor session.  You wouldn't expect three boys to be so cooperative, but they were!  And their mama came up with some fun ideas that we had a blast fulfilling.  Those balloons were wild!  And no worries, that image of Aiden flying away was totally photoshop magic.  He was safely being held by his parents while we photographed him.  But it was still a bunch of fun.  I love outdoor sessions in the spring when the kiddos can be free to play and be themselves.

dallas studio newborn photographer- piper

Just a quick sneak peek from a recent newborn session with sweet, little Piper!  She was a gem and I loved the color in this one. 

{Samantha~ July 2, 2012} Flower Mound- Irving- Dallas Birth Photography

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.

I was so excited to have a client go into labor on Turkey day and even more excited that it happened in the wee hours of the morning so I didn't have to miss the feast! I was honored to attend this peaceful and beautiful birth and see a mom so calm and relaxed bring her sweet son into the world. It was the perfect way to spend Thanksgiving. Mr. Samuel arrived weighing 2 lbs bigger than his sister and oh was he cute! I can't wait to get my hands on him again for our newborn session! Enjoy!

Birth of Teo ~ September 21, 2011 {Dallas- Downtown- DFW Birth Photographer}

I was so excited to be at this birth and even though it was intense and a lot of work for mama, it was also full of laughter and joyous tears.  It was so beautiful to watch this mama and papa bring their second son into the world.  Not only is he just a sweet and handsome addition to the family, but I know he will be so loved.  I am excited to share these photos, especially since they have family in Europe who I am sure are anxious to see the newest addition! mlbirth_web_1

{Ainsley~ September 8, 2011} Allen- Plano- McKinney Birth Photographer

I was so excited to get the call to come to this sweet girl's birth. I was glad I left to go when I did, because when I got there, mom was already pushing! This sweet girl was in a hurry to arrive. Mom did an amazing job bringing her into the world and Dad was right there the whole time. Big brother was THRILLED to meet Ainsley once he woke from a deep sleep. Overall, a beautiful and calm homebirth where Ainsley was surrounded by love. whbirth_web_1

{Mercy Elizabeth~ September 8, 2011} Dallas- Lewisville- Downtown Birth Photographer

Words can't express the honor it was to be at this birth.  Sweet Mercy was diagnosed with Trisomy 13 and was not expected to live.  I was there to document the time they had with her and to share in the joy and sorrow of her birth.  I was honored.  Everything went smoothly and the staff at the hospital was really wonderful.  The best part is Mercy is still with her family.  They know she won't last too much longer, but every minute they get to share with her is truly a gift from God.adbirth_web_1 adbirth_web_2

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!

Expecting a Sweet Boy {Dallas- Downtown- DFW Maternity Photography}

Working with toddlers can be challenging. But usually I have a few tricks up my sleeve that makes it a lot easier. This session couldn't have worked out better. We got some beautiful images of mom and dad before sweet M woke up from her nap. We were able to include her in this special time as well. I love documenting the sweet moments a little family has before adding another member. asmaternity_web_1

Mercury Finn~ April 17, 2011 {Frisco- Plano- McKinney Birth Photography}

I had the honor of photographing Mercury's big sisters birth a few years ago and was so honored to get to help welcome this little man into the world.  Amazingly, he wasn't so little!  He weighed in at 10lbs 7oz and was just as beautiful as his big sister.  Thanks again you guys for having me there.  It is always a pleasure! gcbirth_web_1

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
