These two are seriously the sweetest! You know it will be a fun session when they literally offer to “frolic through the fields” haha! Sunrise sessions have such amazing light if you plan it for the right time and shoot at a location that lends itself to the light coming from the right spots.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with the Louis family several times now and was so excited when Laura reached out to me this year for their fall family photos and wanted to switch it up! Last year we shot at a gorgeous park, this year we went for something a little bit classier with the Kimball Art Museum in Fort Worth. Laura’s inspiration came from the Kardashian family Christmas photos from a few years ago- so creative and so much fun to shoot! Don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
Such a joy to hang out with the Smith family again for Rowan’s lifestyle newborn session! A lot of newborn sessions take place in rooms of the home such as the nursery and master bedroom, but living or sitting rooms can be just as appropriate and give such a great laidback feel to the session. Anywhere there is natural light, i’m there!
This session was the first one since the technical beginning of “fall” in Texas that we had beautiful chilly weather!! The mixture of overcast and peaks of sunlight throughout the session was a dream come true. I adore this little family and loved getting to create these beautiful memories for them.
This sweet family was such a joy to work with! Millie not only has two super loving parents but an older fur brother to protect her as well! The natural light and natural color scheme of the Balkin’s home was a dream come true for sweet and simple lifestyle newborn photos. Miss Millie has two different colored eyes which is SO cool and unique, only time will tell if they will stay two different colors but her parents fingers are crossed that she will get to embrace such a special trait. Millie’s parents decided to wait until Millie was a little bit older (3 mo.) than a typical newborn for her session, which worked out perfectly because she was awake and made such great eye contact which doesn’t usually happen for newborns in the first few weeks of life.
After shooting their pregnancy announcement photos just a few short months ago- I knew their maternity session was going to be stunning!! Jordan has an amazing sense of style and I love the dresses she chose for this session. These looks just go to show that you don’t have to shop for only dresses that are specifically made for maternity, you can find pieces that will fit both during your pregnancy and after. It’s always nice to know you’ll be able to get use out of an outfit more than once. Cannot wait until their newborn session towards the end of the year!
Vanessa + Joe always bring their A game to their sessions- this was no exception! Not only is Vanessa absolutely glowing while carrying their first child, but these two glow just from the love that they show each other every time I see them. Their little one is going to have two of the sweetest parents out there. I was so excited when Vanessa and Joe were down to get in the lake for a few shots at the end of their session! Wading in just a few feet in the shallow water of Lake Grapevine makes for some really magical shots when the sun is setting. Anyone who wants some water shots- just let me know! I love doing them!!
First of all: YES, you can bring your pups! Always bring the pups!!
Second: I just adore Ana’s smile and how vibrantly she is glowing in these photos!!
Ana’s blush pink lace detailed dress was a dream and happened to look so beautiful in front of the little patches of sunflowers that were on the side of this dirt road. I love finding little surprise spots even at locations I shoot regularly.
Everleigh is one lucky little girl! After doing Chassidy’s maternity session I knew she had amazing style, but when I saw how beautifully decorated their home was it made all of my photographer dreams come true! I especially fell in love with Everleigh’s nursery and the soft colors and variety of textures they used to bring together their first born daughter’s room. I made sure to capture each hand made detail of Everleigh’s nursery, so much thought and love is put into nursery rooms and they won’t always look like that. I also have to applaud Chassidy for the bow collection she has acquired for Everleigh- she will have on brand bows every time she goes to target, Starbucks and chick-fil-a!
The Matthew’s house had the most amazing soft lighting throughout and the sweetest details that made this lifestyle newborn session oh so special! I especially adore all of the sweet little bows Michelle had ready for Callie to model. So precious.
