Christmas in July

Yes, I know, it’s almost impossible to think of Christmas in this miserable heat. And while it may not be time to get our Christmas trees up (thank goodness!), it is time to start planning for Christmas cards! I will have lots of cards to choose from this year (this is obviously just a tiny sneak peek). All are fully customizable with the text of your choice and your favorite images from our session. In most cases, card colors can be changed to compliment images.

Session availability is limited this fall. I can’t believe it, but I only have a few openings left — 2 in September, 3 in October and 2 in November! You can go here to reserve your family’s spot. I look forward to creating a memorable session (and card!) for your family this year!


And if you want something really unique…we’ve got you covered there too!

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!

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!

all. tuckered. out.

Sweet Baby R was such a trooper through our entire session, but I’m afraid we wore her out! The amazing thing to me, though, was that she didn’t really fuss, she didn’t cry. She just laid her head down and went to sleep. A new mother’s dream. This was the scene as we wrapped up.

She was so sleepy that she even let me have a little fun posing her (at 4 months)! What an absolute doll.

Have I mentioned how much I love sleeping babies lately!?

workshop mania, part 3

This little guy was so stinkin fun! A tad unsure of sitting in the suitcases at first (can’t say that I blame him, though), but boy did he love playing peek-a-boo. He was so excited about the little game we had going, and he was up and down so much, that he completely tired his little legs out! When it got to the point that he was just poking his head over the top of the tub, mama came to his rescue. May you always find life so amusing sweet little man…

I . Love . Newborns.

Newborns are among my very favorite to photograph, and this sweet little guy was no exception. His mom responded to my Dallas Newborn Model Search (there are two spots left!), and I am so glad that she did. I had such a great time getting to know you J Family and discovering our random connections — it’s such a small world, isn’t it?!? And it goes without saying that your new little man couldn’t be any sweeter or cuter! Congratulations on his arrival!

And just look at how sweet his big sister is with him. I think he was most content in her arms, and I can understand why. She was incredibly gentle and patient with him. What a fantastic big sister you have Baby O. You two will be great friends, I’m sure.
