kaburton-1wmThis couple recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary.  What better way to reflect on their first year of marriage than a photo shoot in some of their favorite spots in Dallas!kaburton-10wmkaburton-8wm kaburton-15wm kaburton-17wmkaburton-25wmkaburton-28wmkaburton-46wmUp-cycled paper flowers using their wedding programs.kaburton-38wm kaburton-40wm kaburton-43wmkaburton-50wm kaburton-58wm kaburton-61wmkaburton-70wmkaburton-76wmkaburton-88wmcollage2 kaburton-102wm kaburton-111wmkaburton-82

It was hard for me to choose just a few, so here’s a picture overload.  We need a little happy on a Monday anyway!

A is one | personal

Our baby girl is ONE!  She is our little burst of energy and has brought so much joy into our lives.  We couldn’t be more proud of her.

blended | family | mckinney, tx

The last time this group saw each other was probably when their parents said their “I Do’s” back in August.  Dad was very excited about this mini reunion and getting everyone together for an extended family session.  So glad I was able to capture some pictures for them!

I worked with this Mom for 5.5 years!  So good catching up with her outside of work!

Extended family sessions may be my new favorite!

a family affair | maternity | richardson, tx

Managed to squeeze a quick session with my friend before she gave birth.  Literally, she had her baby girl three days after we shot these!  I love that she brought her whole family along, dog included (and her name is Baby Girl, too)!  Can’t wait to meet her new bundle of JOY!

mother + daughters | maternity | plano, tx

Some of my favorites from a maternity shoot for my friend and her daughter (and another one on the way).  It sure was hot and there were some creepy crawlers roaming around, but it was fun just gabbing away with the girls and lose track of time.  So excited for their family and the new addition on the way!

rain, rain, go away | family | mckinney, tx

This beautiful family met me bright and early on a Friday morning despite pops of showers in the forecast.   The clouds parted and we were able to take a stroll around the Square.  I even gained a new best friend!  I loved seeing their family dynamic.  So glad I got to start my day with them!

new adventures | personal

IMG_2815

Hello, and welcome!  My name is Aissa (that’s ice-uh) and I am a stay-at-home Mama living in North Dallas, Texas with my husband and two kids.  I have always had an appreciation for photography.  Like most Mom photographers out there, my passion grew when my first child was born.  I took monthly pictures, outfit of the day, milestones, holidays and more.  I am that annoying Mom you know always taking pictures, and after the birth of my daughter last year the pictures didn’t stop- they doubled!

Photography allows you to capture a moment in time.  For me, it’s also somewhat of a creative outlet.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed looking back at pictures over the years, and I would love the opportunity to help you and your family do the same.  This is why I created Aissa Tendorf Photography.

So here’s to taking chances and new adventures.  I hope you’ll join me!
