Oh, how I loved . . .

this session! Be prepared for picture overload, because I really did love this one. It was just one of those nights where everything was right. We had beautiful weather, a beautiful sunset and a beautiful family that shared a very beautiful love. We started our time together in a fun urban spot in Dallas where we captured color, texture and a touch of funk.

Then we headed over to a very special place in Dallas for this young mom and dad. They were married just a stone’s throw from this field and are avid cyclists who can often be found cycling around the lake. It was obvious from the first moment that we arrived that it will inevitably become a special place for little Miss. E as well. She was so at home in the midst of the (often rough!) prairie grass. We got such a kick out of watching her run her hands over the grass and smile. She was definitely in her element and will surely grow to love being in nature as much as her parents!

And this beautiful mamma is also a *very* talented artist. You can see some of her amazing paintings here. I am so flattered that they chose me to capture their family on film. Ds, you are a beautiful family with beautiful love wherever you are!

  1. Carolyn says: Sweet Lauren, we LOVE these photos so much! Thank you for posting such an incredible collection of collages & write-up! Your talent and eye for capturing a moment in time are so impressive... and you were amazing with Emory, which we know *made* the photos... we'll treasure these forever.

Fathers are special

*Especially* the two in my life. In a world where really good fathers aren’t always easy to find, I consider myself truly blessed. I not only have a wonderfully devoted and loving father of my own, but I married a pretty great guy who is the world’s best daddy to our two little ones. Maxwell absolutely worships the ground his daddy walks on, and for good reason. Happy Father’s Day to two of the greatest dads I know. I love you both!

And yes, I’m actually posting a picture of myself on the blog. That’s a first, I think!

contagious love

Wow, this is one loved and treasured baby girl! Her mom and dad are so in love with every single inch of her, and I must say that their love is quite contagious. I came home from my session in their home yesterday and loved on my own two little treasures all afternoon. Ks, you are a beautiful family with beautiful love — and quite photogenic I might add!

So excited

When I showed up today to photograph this family’s newest addition, the middle P girl ran out on the front porch before I hardly had my car door open and yelled “Miss. Lauren, Miss. Lauren, the baby is *out* of my mommy’s tummy!” She was so very excited and wanted to be the first to let me know. Miss. G, I’m super excited too and am so happy that your baby is so loved.

workshop mania, part 1

This past weekend, I attended Michele Anderson of Pinkle Toes Photography‘s 3-day workshop for photographers, and wow, what a weekend it was! It was an intensive, challenging, exhausting but wonderful three days. Going into the workshop, I was prepared to learn a ton. Michele’s talent as a photographer and business woman is evident to all who follow her. But what I wasn’t prepared for was how much fun I would have in the process and what amazing friendships I would form. My fellow attendees were such incredible women who I found I had so much in common with. For three days, we worked together, learned together, laughed together, and shared about ourselves and our dreams. Thank you, ladies, for being so real and so much fun!

At the workshop, we worked with lots of different models, and in an attempt to avoid bombarding you with too many images at once, I’m going to post my favorite shots of each model separately. Stay tuned for more, but first up, maternity…

Family Life

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go from a family of three to a family of six in just a little over a year?!? Well, ask the Ds, and I bet they would tell you that it’s very busy, a bit hectic at times, but totally wonderful and very much worth it! Ds, I was so touched by your story and how God has blessed your family so richly in such a short time. Thank you for inviting me into your home to capture you just as you are right now. I love these pictures of your family life and hope they will keep these precious moments alive for you in the years to come!

And don’t worry Mom, the shots of just the babies we worked so hard for turned out great!

Spring is here!

I am so glad that Spring is here! Yes, since we’re in Texas, it means we are sweating already, but I’m so thankful for the warmer weather, beautiful green grass and blooming flowers everywhere! And I love how the H Family wore fun bright Spring colors for our session. You guys looked great! And I have to tell you that this first picture is perhaps one of my all time favorites. Oh how it makes my heart smile — you can just feel how much these sweet brothers love each other (and how smallest H does not want to be left out ;))!

urban family. natural family.

The D family wanted to mix things up a bit at our session on Saturday, so we visited my favorite urban area of Dallas and then ventured over to a beautiful field that has special meaning to their family. The Ds were married just around the corner from this field, and they love to cycle around the lake. These are also among my absolute favorite places to photograph, so I was happy to oblige. I LOVE all the variety in textures and colors we captured, and I can honestly say that I’m not sure which setting I prefer on you, Ds! But one thing is for certain — you are a beautiful, loving, connected family wherever you are!
