Your Photographer in Westlake Texas
The area known as Westlake was originally settled in 1847 by Charles and Matilda Medlin with about 20 other families. In the mid-twentieth century, what is now Westlake was known as Circle T Ranch, a 2,000 acre ranch founded by Dallas attorney and oilman J. Glenn Turner. When incorporated in the late 1950s, the name Southlake, Texas already existed, so ranchers and homeowners took the name Westlake.
During the late 1990s, the City Council attempted to disband the city. The large Solana development was annexed by Southlake, while several large tracts of land were annexed by Fort Worth, Texas. A local district judge ruled the annexations in violation of state law, and the properties returned under Westlake jurisdiction.
In 2000, the radio program This American Life featured a story about the battle to disband the town in the face of development by Ross Perot, Jr..
Westlake is known for having by far the highest per-capita revenue from traffic tickets of any town in Texas. The city does not provide its own police force. Instead, law enforcement services are contracted from the City of Keller, which provides patrol and traffic enforcement officers to serve Westlake. The city does, however, provide its own Fire-EMS services.
Family is an important part of everyone’s life. It’s probably the most important aspect within one’s life. From children to parents to grandparents and siblings to cousins, you most likely have many members who make up your family.
You definitely want to remember each and every moment with all of them. And as time goes on, you and your family will grow together, build bonds, encounter new milestones in your lives, and overall, love one another.
With professional photographs, all of these memories can live on with your generation and generations to come. You and your family can relive these moments whenever you want.
If you have ever tried to be the photographer and capture pictures of a toddler, you know how difficult this can be. The reasons are due to the non-stop moving around, their inability to focus and remain focused for more than a few seconds and their emotions can go from one extreme to another.
Once you actually do get photos of this age group, I’ve found that the pictures are usually more rewarding than any other age group. Babies definitely have their own charm, but toddler photos are far more interesting. At this age they can walk, run, touch and interact with everything around them. You can communicate with them and get a response, even though sometimes it isn’t the response you’re necessarily looking for. A parent understands this, their first and easiest word to say is typically “No”. Taking pictures of them is more like action sports than most other photography sessions. I thoroughly enjoy sessions of this age group and would love to work with your toddler(s). You can see my toddler photos below.

Maternity photos have really become more popular over the last 15-20 years. Many point back to the early 90’s when Demi Moore was in Vanity Fair with her maternity photos.

Even the next generations can enjoy the photos.
