Garden Session | Fort Worth Family Photographer

I’m really starting to appreciate the whole seeing the same families every year part of this job. It is truly my JOY to capture yours!!! And to see more sweet babies added to your portraits…the dynamic keeps changing but the constant is the love. Love that keeps growing and it is such a beautiful thing! Besides that, in the busy-ness of life, it’s so tough to keep up with people so I love getting to just hang out with a family for 1-2 hours. That’s exactly what it was like with these four. Just catching up, and catching them loving on their adorable kiddos at the beautiful Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. Thanks again, G family! Always a lovely time with y’all!

Morning | Mama post

Oh this boy. Life can get so crazy busy at times but sometimes between the time-outs and the do I have enough food for dinner, and to-do lists, I’m able to just take him in. All two years and two months of this extraordinary little love that I’m so blessed to call mine. Simple, lazy mornings with him are my favorite. When we don’t have to go anywhere and we can just kick back in alligator pajamas and play with whatever trinkets we find in mama’s room. (The baby monitor is a fav, tiny sheep, Easter egg). I love the light in our room and I’ve been setting him up here since he was super tiny. With my pregnancy creeping to an end and the excitement growing to meet baby sister, I’m thankful for mornings like this to just enjoy, document, celebrate this sweet boy and his joyful spirit. Soaking it all in. Cherishing the one on one time.

Aggie Baby | Fort Worth Newborn Photographer

I’ve known this sweet family for years now (since college) and it has been a blessing watching their family grow! I was able to take photos of the three of them last year and I was so honored that they asked me back to capture the first moments with their little man! I loved getting to meet them in their home to catch those real moments. There is something so special about lifestyle newborn sessions and I’m growing to love them more and more! Also, they went to Texas A&M (like me, of course!) and I loved getting to set up their rings and celebrate the excitement for the newest, cutest, fightin’ Texas Aggie! Thanks so much again to the lovely G Family and congratulations on your precious boy!

ONE | Fort Worth Family Photographer

My sweet little niece is one and just getting so big!! I was so excited to do these photos for her in the same place where her mom and dad did her gender reveal!! The morning sunlight in this location always makes me swoon and I just couldn’t get enough of little one’s sweet scrunchy nose smile! Ah! Time just flies when you’re chasing a baby, right?! My sister and BIL have fit a whole lot of life in less than two years of marriage and I’ve loved getting to help capture this little sweetie from day 1! (Newborn post here) Though it’s been crazy for them, I love seeing the joy on their faces and how absolutely in love they are with their girl. Love you three so much!!

TWO | Mama Post

Today. Oh, how did two whole years fly by to get us to today?? My baby. My BIG, handsome, sweet and silly love is TWO and I just cannot believe it. This mama thing is sure tough sometimes, but days like these are so full of joy and extra thankfulness for my time with him. Life can get so busy but today has been beautiful so far and I’m doing my best to take it all in.

That is really what I want to do not just on his birthday but more in the everyday. To stop what I am doing and just be together. To not worry so much about the cleaning, the bills, the “to-dos” and just soak it all in. Because two years sure did FLY and I want to remember everything I possibly can about this time in our lives and about this extraordinary little human that God has so graciously gifted us with. He is truly a joy and a blessing and I have loved every single moment of being his mama.

Here are just a few recent ones of my boy just being his sweet self. Even though I still slip back in time and remember those precious newborn and baby days when the snuggles were much longer, I am cherishing this time of toddler-hood and soaking up these days with him. I am loving every bit of the little person he is today. Learning new words, trying on our shoes, climbing on boxes, hiding my brush under the bed. I love this little blue eyed, puppy loving, coloring, messy eating, book reading little guy to pieces and I wouldn’t change one wispy hair on his blonde head.

We love you sweet boy!! Happy 2 years 🙂

Laughter | Fort Worth Family Photographer

I was so happy to see this sweet family again! While all of my sessions are fun, I’d say this one was chalk full of more laughter and giggles than even I thought possible. I have been blessed to know this lovely family since these littles were only 7 months old and it has been such a joy watching them grow into the sweet, smart, and silly six year olds they are now! I just love all the joy I see in them! You can just tell how much they love each other and how much love is in this whole family. One of my favorite parts of this business is getting to see families come back the next year and capture the changes of their kiddos. We all know how fast it goes, and I just love getting to be there to capture big laughs and personalities as well as fresh freckles and mouths with a few less teeth. Thank you so much for letting me jump and play and photograph your family again this year!

2015 Year End

It was crazy difficult to choose my favorites from 2015!! Here are just a few of the beautiful smiling faces, teeny tiny toes, and wispy haired toddlers I had the joy of working with this year. I feel so incredibly blessed to have this job…Snuggling babies? Running and jumping with families and kiddos?! It just doesn’t get any better than that!! Hope you all had a blessed and Happy New Year and you are entering 2016 with anticipation and JOY! It’s a whole new year, people!! Oh, the possibilities…
