I’m so lucky to be able to photograph such beautiful expecting moms!  Mandy looked radiant during her maternity session.  She and her husband will be welcoming another baby girl in less than a month and I can’t wait to meet her!  Here are some favorites from their session.


Doesn’t she remind you of Shirley Temple?  Love her curls!

Happy New Year, friends!  After a very busy fall season, I’m finally back to share some of my favorite sessions with you.  First up is the Douglas family.  I’m so lucky I got to see their sweet faces twice in 2018.  I can’t get enough of these handsome boys!  Here are a few of my favorites from their session. ______________________________

When I met Isabella, the first thing I noticed was all that gorgeous hair.  Then she turned around and I fell in love with her sweet face.  It’s not evident in these pictures, but she is quite the smiley one!  It may be due to the cold front that came through that morning, but she was a trooper.  She’s so cute!  I can’t wait to see her again for her one year photos.  Until then, here she is at 6 months old.

Happy first day of Spring!  I went back two years for this one of my son in a field of bluebonnets.  It’s still one of my favorites!

macsef-21-copyI don’t often get to photograph couples so I was very excited for this engagement session!  It was a nice change and hope I get a chance to do it again soon. Change is good!  And this couple was up for anything and was so much fun to be around.  Thanks for the laughs and chasing the sun with me.  Here are just a few of my favorites from their session.macsef-2-copymacsef-7-copymacsef-8-copymacsef-13-copymacsef-15-copymacsef-30-copymacsef-35-copymacsef-42-copymacsef-45-copymacsef-46-copymacsef-52-copymacsef-59-copymacsef-70-copycollage1-copymacsef-90-copymacsef-91-copymacsef-95-copymacsef-105-copymacsef-97-copymacsef-101-copymacsef-108-copymacsef-110-copymacsef-114-copymacsef-124-copymacsef-125-copymacsef-129-copy

amaratana-23-copyI loved meeting these new parents. It brought me back to those sleepless nights and running on little fuel. But all of that goes away as soon as they see their sweet baby boy. They’re still trying to figure things out, but really, aren’t we all?  Here are just a few of their first pictures as a family of three. amaratana-8-copyamaratana-15-copyamaratana-22-copyamaratana-25-copyamaratana-36-copyamaratana-28-copyamaratana-35-copyamaratana-31-copyamaratana-44-copyamaratana-69-copyamaratana-71-copyamaratana-62-copyamaratana-75-copyamaratana-82-copyamaratana-96-copyamaratana-92-copyamaratana-107-copyamaratana-110-copyamaratana-111-copyamaratana-123-copy

hayley-86-copyHayley wanted to take some pictures before becoming a family of four and what better way to capture her family than in their beautiful home.  What a pretty backdrop right in their backyard!  They’re welcoming their second child and waiting to find out if it’s a boy or a girl.  I can’t wait to meet their new addition!  Here are just a few of my favorites from their session.hayley-2-copyhayley-4-copyhayley-7-copyhayley-12-copyhayley-17-copyhayley-21-copyhayley-30-copyhayley-35-copyWhat a mama’s boy.  I’m sure he’s going to be the best big brother!collage2-copyhayley-52-copyhayley-56-copyhayley-57-copyhayley-71-copycollage1-copyhayley-77-copyhayley-88-copyhayley-95-copyhayley-92-copyhayley-96-copy
