Life with a toddler is always an adventure! I had so much fun spending a day out in downtown Dallas with sweet, rambunctious 2.5 year old Vera Lynn recently! Like any toddler, she is go go go!
We started the day with a quick stop into her favorite coffee shop "Bucks" to make sure mom and I had the energy to keep up with her! And of course we had to grab a few photos in front of the infamous "I love tacos so much" graffiti.
Then we hopped on the M-Line Trolley where she got to help the conductor push the peddle to make the bell ring, letting everyone know she was coming through. She loved looking out the window and pointing out all the dogs we passed by!
Not one to sit still long, by the time we got close to Klyde Warren Park, Vera was ready to get off and do a little walking around. She loved racing back and forth in front of the mosaic mural at the Dallas Museum of Art and looking up at all the tall buildings around us!
A quick outfit change, and Vera was more than ready to splash around in the fountains at Klyde Warren. Luckily, it was still more than warm enough to be lots of fun!
Then we headed over to Whole Foods for a little snack. Vera very much enjoyed her chocolate chip cookie!
Finally, we got back on the M-Line and headed back to our starting point. Vera found a paper someone had left behind and enjoyed "reading" it while we rode along!
I can't wait for our next day out adventure! The city is so full of wonder and possibilities!

I love love love pumpkin season! Those big, bright orange veggies just make me smile any time I see them! So I thought the perfect way to celebrate the new month is with a throwback to a session from last year, with sweet little baby Roland and his first visit to the pumpkin patch!
This adorable little guy is a year old now, and a big brother, but I still love how wonderful and bright our visit to the Calie's Acre in Longview turned out!

After my amazing session with Lily last year in May, and their sweet little Christmas Mini session last December, I've been anxiously awaiting my next session with this awesome brother and sister! They both rock their own unique personalities, and they let them shine bright! The love between big brother Conner and little sister Lily is obvious right away. Conner listens with true interest to all of Lily's stories, and they both are so comfortable being silly and sweet. I am just in love with their whole session!

Just over 2 wonderful years ago, I was honored to be able to photograph a very sweet, beautiful little newborn girl, Waverly, when she came home after roughly 2 months in the NICU. It is still one of my very favorite sessions, and I just fell in love with the entire family. I have been so fortunate to be able to photograph this family as they have grown, and most recently, I was once again invited to photograph their newest little addition, handsome baby boy Jefferson. He was an absolute perfect little angel for the entire session. And big sister Waverly was terrific as well! Jefferson already has such a fiercely loyal and loving protector in her. Mom Chesley and Dad Terrence are so amazing, and it's so obvious how much love is in their home. I am already looking forward to our next session together! ♥
These five sweet sisters made our session so much fun and they made such beautiful models!
Maybe I'm a little biased since three of these beautiful young ladies are my own bonus daughters, and I've been a part of the other two's lives since they were born, but they all really are so great in front of the camera! Oldest sister Azriel was so amazing at helping to keep littlest Ainsley happy and occupied between shots. And second oldest Ava and second youngest Anna were so fun to watch as they kept racing around together and checking out the area around us. Sweet sweet middle sister Alanna was a wonderful and giggly help whenever I needed an extra hand!
Sibling sessions are one of my favorite sessions to do because I just love capturing all the unique and interesting relationships between siblings! Contact me and let's capture those sweet, silly, beautiful moments between your darling kiddos today! ♥
As a photographer, sometimes I have ideas that I want to try out first, before I decide if I want to offer them to my clients. This usually means either putting out a model call, or using the four gorgeous models I have lounging around my house. ;)
So when I thought about offering pajama and plushie sessions, of course I wanted to try it out first. And even though I decided not to offer them for this years holiday mini sessions, we did have such a blast shooting them! And that's the most important thing, isn't it? ♥
Sweet sweet Myla. I just love when her mom calls me up and says "Myla needs a session!" because I know it's always going to be something fun and different and oh so very Myla, whether it's a BoHo theme or a glamourous dress up time. This year was no exception! Myla has a gorgeous collection of American Girl dolls and she felt they needed some camera time. So what better activity than a tea party!
But first, we had a little fun on the playground with one of her favorite dolls. They both even got a little time on the swings! ;)
I can't wait until our next session to see what Myla has in store for me and my camera!
I just ADORE sibling sessions! And I especially love working with brothers, Kyler and Daxin!
This was our second session together, and this time we got to add in a sweet little sister, Melia!
Kyler just shines as a totally devoted big brother, and Daxin is following right in his footsteps. Melia is one very loved little girl, no doubt about it. ♥
Even though my speciality may be in tweens and teens, I still take on a few Family sessions each year in the fall.
Vanessa, James and sweet little Eli were one of those families, and we had such a blast! I loved getting to step back for a moment and just watch this adorable little family play and interact together on the playground. Eli just LOVED going down the slide, over and over again! And he couldn't stop laughing and smiling while flying high on the swings!
He was a little less interested when we moved away from the playground to do some more focused family shots, but we still managed to get a smile or two from him!
I still have a few openings left for family sessions this fall. It's the perfect time of year to update those family photos, so let's talk!
Goodbye Summer, and Hello Autumn!
It is almost time for school to start again, and what better way to celebrate and to capture this fleeting moment of the year, than with Back To School photos?
Daniel is entering the 7th grade, and I can't believe how much he's changed and grown since this time last year! I love his new sense of style, and the early signs of interest he's showing in his appearance. We had so much fun shooting this little mini session. It didn't take much for his goofy, playful personality just shined in each shot!
Back to School might happen every year, but each year is so different from the last. These really are once in a lifetime moments. Don't miss out on them!
