Meagan and Anabelle's Urban Portrait Session - Fort Worth, Texas

Meagan of Camille & Grace Photography is one of my closest photographer friends, and a beautiful subject! She introduced me to this super cool, urban location near Downtown Fort Worth. I absolutely love the textures and deconstructed look, especially with their adorable Fall outfits (even if it doesn't FEEL like fall yet in Texas!) 

Law Maternity Session - Richardson, Texas

I was so excited to be able to do Arron and Cathy's maternity portraits at a new location! I made the trek from Fort Worth to Richardson to Prairie Creek Park. They have a beautiful (and easily accessible) waterfall that was just amazing! 

Baby Landon made his big debut shortly after these photos were taken! 

Rudy and Cooper's TCU Family Session - Fort Worth, Texas

Typically, when I head to a session that includes a teenage, or pre-teen boy, I give myself a little pep talk (let's just say that family portraits aren't usually a teenage boy's favorite thing to do!). I didn't have any worries with Rudy and Cooper. Cooper has to be the most polite and most cooperative young man that I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. 

Not to mention how PHOTOGENIC these guys are. Aren't they GORGEOUS? (The doggies, too!) 

Rudy is the Best Friend of MY Best Friend, which makes her my extend BFF Family! I was so excited to be able to spend my evening capturing these images of her beautiful family. 

Michaela's Fall Senior Session - Fort Worth, Texas

Michaela, a Senior at Northwest High School, and I had a blast at her Fall Senior Session. Her first session (check it out HERE) was SUPER windy and much dressier, so we decided to do a more casual session at Eagle Mountain Park in Fort Worth to capture some images in her tennis gear, and to celebrate her BIG NEWS! Michaela is going to be an Aggie! 

Congrats, Sweetheart! I know you will do GREAT things at A&M!

Miss B's Princess Cake Smash - Saginaw, Texas

I was thrilled to get back into the studio with this adorable cake smash! Although we originally planned to be outside, the crazy Texas weather had other plans (but at least we were air conditioned!) 

Can you believe this precious sweetie's headbands were all made by her grandma? I was SO jealous of this one year old's super cute birthday fashion!

Michaela's Downtown Senior Session - Fort Worth, Texas

I had such a great time wandering around downtown Fort Worth with Michaela! It was HOT and HUMID, but we stuck it out to get amazing fun and urban senior portraits! (As well as laughing our booties off as I chased off creepy guys who stopped to talk to us!)

Grace's Outdoor Senior Session - Fort Worth, Texas

When I met Grace and her Mom, we got along instantly! A fellow "band nerd" (well... colorguard, but Marching Band nonetheless), I knew how busy her upcoming school year would be, so we braved the Texas Summer and ventured to Eagle Mountain Park for Grace's senior portraits.

My Rainbow

"I've been working on this Rainbow series for a while. The first image, the Red, was created in memory of my Mom. It was her favorite color, red roses were her favorite flower and I just felt the urge to create something for her. I added the butterflies at the urging of my little model, who, every time she sees a butterfly, says that it is Mimi coming to say Hello. After finishing the red image, I decided that I had to do more. What started out as photo inspired by my mom, turned into a whole project devoted to her memory, her spirit and her love. She was an amazing woman, a funny woman, a loving woman, she was a rainbow."

Awe, Shoot! My Favorite Places to Photograph in Fort Worth - Volume Two

In Volume Two of my Favorite Places to Photograph series, I'd like to share a location that MANY of us Fort Worth natives have visited, but not many people have really explored. Each time I photograph a new client at the Stockyards, I am surprised at the number of times I hear "wow! I didn't know this was here!" I'm not one to keep my secrets hidden, so I'm going to share all of my not-so-secret favorite spots in the Stockyards.

2. The Fort Worth Stockyards, Main Street and E. Exchange Ave, Fort Worth, Texas 76164

I usually have my clients park in the "Free Parking" area and we start photographing in the back of the Stockyards, behind all of the hustle and bustle of the popular tourist areas. 

If my adventurous subjects are up for it, I try to take a walk down to the river, and get some shots on the rocks by the water in the little-known Saunder's Park. The great thing about this location, is that you can escape the "rustic" setting of the Stockyards without driving to another location. 

Happy Mother's Day - Heather and Julia - Saginaw Texas Photographer

Mother's Day is rough for anyone who is Motherless. The days and weeks leading up to the Sunday are torture. I have even avoided grocery shopping at Wal-Mart or Target, to bypass the onslaught of pink roses and "Love you, Mom" balloons. What I will never avoid though, is photographing mothers and children together. I had such a wonderful time capturing the bond between Heather and Julia in their Mommy & Me session in a wildflower field in Fort Worth, Texas. 

 

Awe, Shoot! My Favorite Places to Photograph in Fort Worth - Volume One

The #1 question I get asked as a photographer is "where should we take our portraits?" or "where did you take these portraits?" I am a FIRM believer that it's not the location, but what you do with it, but a beautiful, rustic or modern location can add to the overall essence of a photograph and really help to bring out the personality of the subject.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing my favorite venues in the Fort Worth area, starting with... 

1. Eagle Mountain Park, 11601 Morris Dido Newark Rd, Fort Worth, TX 76179

Now, I have to admit, one of the main things that draws me to Eagle Mountain Park is convenience. It is just a short, 5-minute drive from my home, and after years of visiting the park, and photographing families here, I know it pretty well. Me knowing it well only benefits my clients MORE. I know the spots with the best light, the spots that you MAY need hiking boots to get too, and how to utilize the more "popular" spots in the park to create a new look. 

Ashlyn - Saginaw, Texas Senior Portraits

Hello Everyone! Meet Ashlyn: My Class of 2016, Senior Representative, Homecoming Queen, and all-around sweetheart! I am SO glad that I had an opportunity to capture part of Ashlyn's Senior year, from Senior Portraits in the Fall leaves, to her cap and gown and prom dress portraits. Ashlyn is one of a kind, and is going to SHINE at TCU next year. 

Ashlyn's portraits were taken at Eagle Mountain Park near Saginaw and the Fort Worth Stockyards! 

 

 

The Little Gatsby's - 20's Inspired Children's Glamour Portraits

Sometimes, when inspiration strikes, you just have to run with it! Last week, on a rainy, fall, day here in Texas, I decided to take my little one into the studio and have some fun! After a little hairspray, a little makeup, and a lot of bribery, I am so excited to share what we captured! 

The next day, I knew that I had to try some of these styling and editing ideas on another precious little princess! When my daughter's friend came over, we got to capture even more sweetness! 

For glamorous and artistic children's photography, please contact me! We can work together to find the perfect way to capture your child's character. 

Mr. River!

A little while ago I had the pleasure of photographing the SWEETEST little boy! River has the most adorable personality, and is super handsome to boot! 

I am so excited to photograph this little one AGAIN this weekend at my Fall Mini Sessions! 

Can't wait!
