Remember Lauren and Shaun’s pretty winter maternity session at the Arboretum? I’m so excited to share their in-home lifestyle newborn session at their home in Dallas. Their color palette was neutral and perfect for showcasing their sweet baby boy, little Hudson! And how sweet is his dinosaur-themed nursery?! I’ve said it before and I’ll say […]

The Tullos family was so much fun to get to know and photograph at River Legacy Park in Arlington this spring. The kids are just cute as can be and you can tell there’s a lot of love in their family. And seriously, what a good-looking family! Could they not all be models?!

I talk to moms all the time who stress out about their family photo session. You’re paying good money for a session and it would feel like such a waste if your kids were wild and uncooperative, or if your photographer didn’t do the job you had hoped they would. I hear you. You want […]

My guess is you know someone with a photography horror story. Or maybe you are that person. The wedding photographer didn’t get a photo of the mom and bride and barely knew how to work their flash. The amateur newborn photographer/nextdoor neighbor did the session in his garage and it took four hours and not […]

How to choose your family photographer

I don’t know about you but I soo miss the days of the TV show “What Not to Wear.” Stacey and Clinton had such a knack for turning train wreck fashion no-no’s into beautiful works of art simply by transforming their wardrobe and how they saw themselves. Talk about POWER. I, like a lot of […]

The sweet Alvarado family met me early a few weekends ago on a gray morning for their family portrait session. I knew from the second Taylor started sending me their outfit options that they would be one stylish and well-dressed clan. I was not wrong! Their color palettes of blues, gray, whites, khaki, and a […]

Lauri Ann has been a friend for a long time — we both started as newbies at our job together six years ago and formed a tight friendship. Though we’ve both moved on, I’m so thankful we’re still friends! Last fall, I had the honor of doing her maternity session at Arbor Hills in Plano. […]
