Burkhalter Family Session | McKinney, TX

The Burkhalter crew trekked all the way out to this gorgeous spot in McKinney and we got some lovely shots. It was a little wild and crazy but what shoot with little kids isn’t at some point? Bottom line is we had fun and got some great shots. Adriana and Eric looked stunning in their attire and those boys… the suits! I just LOVE little boys in suits. Don’t you?! Hello cuteness overload! And who could outshine sweet Miss EB in her pretty pink dress with that seriously grown up hairstyle? Love those shoes EB! ;)

Teng Family Session

This is the Teng family! Full of life and fun, these sweeties are a hoot! We had a great time playing around at their session in Keller. Their children, Foster and Elliot, are full of life and happiness. They are just a joy to be around. I love seeing their little personalities and smiles.

I hope you enjoy looking at their images. Can’t wait to catch you next year Tengs’!

Baylee Senior Session

This girl I’ve nicknamed (in my head) “Beautiful Baylee.” She’s such a natural beauty with a heart of gold. Easy to like and talk to, I had a great time during her session. We decided to bum around the stockyards because BB (beautiful Baylee) like a more rustic feel. Well, we definitely got that. What’s your favorite pic? I think mine is the green door.

Luckett Family Session | Southlake, TX

The Luckett family session was amazing. Great location. Beautiful weather. Well, ok if I’m being honest it was a tad cold. But the skies were clear and we had a gorgeous sunrise to work with. Ah… I just love it when mother nature plays nice for a session. It’s almost like God is like “Yes, I’m happily going to grant you snobby photographer person superb lighting.” Haha. Wow. That sounds totally vein and self-centered of me doesn’t it? It does speak to how excited I get when “the stars align”. Ok, I digress.. so…

This beautiful family brought their four children out for Mom’s Christmas present… a photoshoot. I just LOVE it. When my kids grow up, I want a family picture just like theirs. Kevin? You taking notes?? Enjoy viewing their images!

Jack Senior Session | Keller & Denton, TX

Jack’s session was beyond fun. We had the first part of his session in traditional senior style and bummed around Downtown Keller. We got some really cool shots in that series but I think the one if front of the wooden wall is my fav. The second part of his session is where things really got interesting. Jack is a member of the Civil Air Patrol and we decided to highlight that at the Denton airport. It was stinkin’ cold that morning and although I’m pretty sure my fingers went numb at some point… it was TOTALLY worth it. See below and tell me what you think!

Halloween Image - How did she do that?

I’ve had a few people as how I made this my kids for Halloween pic this year. Below is the basic run down. I took individual pics of my kids on a white background with two lights on them. One light was to their right and another was just behind them to the left.

 It took about an hour to dress and photograph the first three individually so by the time I got to Sam, I was feeling lazy so we didn’t put any shoes on him. Those had to be added in post. Luckily, I did have the foresight to have him hold a piece of a toy so it could later be turned into a hammer.    Next came the bit everything was put together. The first step was to create the background which was combined using three separate images.

Dague Family Session | Keller, TX

Sarah and Derrick Dague have the CUTEST little man in their lives. Everyone, meet AJ. He was such a treat to capture. He was happy and fun and busy… just like a little boy should be. We were able to get quite a variety of families pics for this beautiful family. Enjoy looking at them!

 This is probably my fav from this session. There’s just something that touches my heartstrings when I snap a pic of a momma comforting her baby.

Dawnelle Senior Session | Fort Worth & Roanoke, TX

Miss Dawnelle had her senior session recently. She’s a drop beautiful girl to photograph (I’m supremely jealous of her eyes). We had a fun time hopping around a variety of locations in Fort Worth and Roanoke. After a variety of your typical girly senior shots, this beauty ended her session by showing her archery skills. Don’t worry about this one Dad… she can hold her own!

Hoy Family Session

Kyndall and Austin contacted me to get some pictures of their family which consists of the two of them and their two fur babies. As most sessions are with animals.. it was busy, but fun. Their pups were SO EXCITED to be out in the open. We got some really cute shots of their family as a whole and Kyndall and Austin together. I hope you enjoy looking them over!

 Aren’t they adorable?!!!

Brown Family Session | Fort Worth, TX

Do you ever meet someone and think to yourself… these are the kind of people I can hang with. These are MY people. Everyone… meet the Browns. For me… they are those kinda people. Fun, down-to-earth, laid back kinda people. Always smiling. Up for whatever. Easy to like and a joy to be around. The Browns brought their two boys Grayden and Jaxson out for a fun family session. We had a blast creating these beautiful images. I’m so excited to have met them and create these with them. My absolute FAVORITE is at the end so don’t forget to scroll all the way to the bottom!
