honored

What an honor it was to be contacted by this talented photographer for a session with his family. They were such a pleasure to work with and oh so in love with each other and that darling baby girl of theirs. And those baby shoes! I had heard of them before, but I had never seen them in person. Let’s just say that I’m now officially hooked! I won’t embarrass myself by telling you how many pairs we have bought since this session! Thank you, N Family, for trusting me to capture you together this year. I am truly honored.

an unexpected detour

I was so excited about my vision for this family session. It involved this reflecting pool, beautiful flowers and an adorable 4-year-old little girl. But when I arrived at our intended destination, there were tents, DJs and marketing promotions everywhere! Little did we know that it would be a major stop for the Dallas Marathon that was going on that morning. Eeek! So we did a u-turn and headed deeper into downtown, which turned out to be the perfect backdrop for this ultra-hip, fun family of three. Thanks, Ms, for being flexible and making the most out of our unexpected turn of events! Your love for each other clearly shines no matter where you are, and I happen to love the graffiti wall we stumbled upon! 🙂

And while I’m at it, I realized that I had never shared more from this beautiful and incredibly talented mamma’s yoga headshot session from earlier this year. Can you believe the grace and precision in these poses?!?

Smurf’d

Sweet Baby M had so much fun digging into her first birthday cake at the end of our session together, and boy did we have a good laugh over the blue little smurf that she became…

And those weren’t the only laughs we shared this beautiful September evening (yes, I’m just now getting to my fall sessions!). There is such an ease and effortlessness about your love for each other, N family, and you are so much fun to be around! Thank you for trusting me to capture these precious moments in your family’s journey through life.

new life

What an honor it is to be trusted to capture those first few days after a family welcomes new life. Anyone who has had a baby of their own knows how quickly those days pass and just how precious they are. The endless snuggles, complete dependence and ceaseless wonder of how tiny and perfect they are. Thank you, B Family, for trusting me to help you document your growing family. I hope these images will help keep these days *alive* for you for years to come.

the hottest day of the year

We met early to try to escape the oppressive summer heat that Dallas was so lucky to enjoy this year, but it was still hot. hot. hot. The “take your breath away” kind of hot. But despite how hot it was that day, we had fun and captured some wonderful images for the S family to cherish forever…of their family while their three littles were still little, with chubby baby cheeks, cars hidden in their pockets and fairies dancing in their sweet imaginations.

Hope for Harper

Meet Harper Elle Howard, an 18-month-old little girl who should be a busy toddler by now…into everything and entertaining her family with those precious toddler antics. But she is not. She has trouble holding her own head up, can’t sit unsupported, crawl, talk or walk. As her mom stated in a recent interview, “she is an 18-month-old trapped in a 2 to 3-month-old’s body.” She was born with a rare genetic disorder that affects less than 300 people world-wide and doesn’t even have a name. You have probably never heard of it; I hadn’t. It is referred to as CDKL5, the gene that it affects, and it causes intense seizures, sensory issues, gastrointestinal difficulties, visual impairment, scoliosis and severely delayed developmental growth.

That’s the bad news, but certainly not the end of sweet Harper’s story. The good news is that there is Hope for Harper and hope for better treatment and a cure to CDKL5! Harper’s family has found a doctor at Children’s Hospital of Boston to study the disorder, improve treatment and, ultimately, find a cure. They are diligently raising money in hopes of meeting their commitment of $100,000 by December 31st so Harper’s study can begin in January. They are about 25% there, with only 2 1/2 months to go. Would you consider visiting this page to contribute to this worthy cause? I just did, and I hope you will too!

Penny, you are an inspiration to me and an example to all mothers. The tenacity with which you and Dustin are fighting for and believing in Harper is so beautiful and encourages me to be a better mom to my two little ones. I pray that people’s hearts and lives are touched (as I know mine has been) as you continue to tell Harper’s story and fight for a cure to CDKL5.

Refreshing love

You might remember this beautiful family. I met up with them again at my holiday Mini-Sessions, and they are still just as beautiful and in love with their baby girl as ever!
