Travel Tip for Photographers: when you are spending the weekend with your gorgeous girlfriend, who just so happens to be expecting their second child… you bring your camera bag just incase.

I spent the weekend in the DFW area and got to hang out with my friend Jessica, who flew down from Kansas.  Next time we see each other she won’t be pregnant, so we carved out an hour during our last day together and shot around our rental home. Couldn’t have asked for a better model, & we pretty much laughed the entire time 🙂







i first met the W family during last year’s minis.

& it was wonderful seeing their name pop up this summer to book another session!

especially Miss K… she is full of personality!

best of all…she will smile for Mac & Cheese!

i just love watching my little clients grow each year

here’s a little preview into our session…

a little rain (okay, a LOT of rain) didn’t keep Courtney & Skyler away

after changing our location last minute, we found sunshine+dry skies!

these two have a wonderful connection which made my job easy

their constant laughter was so addictive and the results: priceless
