Winter | Flower Mound & Dallas/Ft. Worth area photographer




While I love portraiture, I have been attracted to nature photography since my childhood.  When taking my daughter's 6th birthday portraits in January, this tree caught my eye with one lonesome horse apple.  I felt that this really captured natures change of season-Winter.  While Winter is not my favorite season of the year, I feel that we should embrace the changes of seasons.  How boring would it be to have only one season all year long?  I also look forward to one of my favorite seasons, Spring which is around the corner!

Bridal Portraits | Denton County Portrait Photographer



Congratulations to April and Mark on your wedding!  I've been dying to post these since January but had to wait not to spoil the dress.  I love all the details of weddings including bridal portraits.  Apparently it's a southern tradition, I love them because it gives the bride a dress, make-up, and hair rehearsal prior to their wedding day.  These were taken of April at their wedding venue, Windsor at Hebron Park in Carrollton, TX.  It's a beautiful new wedding venue, I love the neutral colors that allow couples to incorporate their own colors.

Mother and Daughter | Flower Mound/Grapevine Portrait Photographer




I love sessions with Mother's and Daughter's and capturing their sweet bond!  These were taken downtown Grapevine which makes a great backdrop for portraits, especially in the Winter.

Preparing for a Newborn Session | Dallas/Ft. Worth Newborn Photographer




You are expecting a bundle of joy and you've made a list of must do's before baby arrives.  Have you booked your newborn portraits?  I recommend booking your newborn portraits in the last trimester of pregnancy at least 4-6 weeks before your estimated due date.  It's best to schedule newborn sessions within the first 12 days of life for the most sleepy and squishy poses.  When you contact me to book, I suggest tentatively scheduling your session about 6-7 days after your estimated due date.  This way if baby arrives late or a little early most likely they are within the perfect time frame for portraits.

Okay so you have scheduled your portraits, baby has arrived, now what?  Contact me as soon as baby has arrived in case we need to reschedule.

Prior to your session here is a list of preparations for your on-location newborn session.

1. Take care of yourself, let grandma watch baby while you give yourself some much needed pampering.  Hey you deserve it, you just had a baby!

2. Lay out your clothes if you plan on being in family/newborn portraits.  I suggest black or dark clothing to hide postpartum belly if you feel uncomfortable, which includes loose pants such as elastic waist, maternity pants, or a loose fitting dress.  Another option is to go airy with neutral colors such as beige.

3. Do you have a special blanket or baby outfit that you want to include in the session?  Lay it out the day before so you don't forget.

4.  Be prepared with diapers, wipes, and towels for those naked baby shots.

5. Tidy up the rooms that may be used for portraits such as living room, master bedroom, and nursery.  Open your window shades to let the natural window light shine.  I often will use these rooms for lifestyle portraits of the family and/or siblings together with baby.

6.  Last but not least and the most important!  On the session day be sure to set the heat to your home 78-80°especially for when baby is unclothed.

Baby likes it warm and toasty for those sleep poses!

Arcade Birthday Party | Dallas/Ft. Worth Child Photographer



My daughter requested a party at Chuck E. Cheese for her 6th birthday this year.  It brought back memories of my own arcade birthday party except mine was at Show Biz Pizza.  After some research I found out that Show Biz Pizza was the original and Chuck E. Cheese was a competitor.  To read the history, click here.  I love planning my kids birthday parties and what better place to look for ideas is Pinterest!  There were not too many pins so I made my own board of ideas.

These girls took me by surprise, I wasn't expecting them to be walking so well when I arrived.  They started walking around 10 months!

Miss. R. was hard to keep on the backdrop but she had fun with this hat box!
