Jasmine Maternity Session | Dallas Family Photographer

When another photographer, is in front of my camera, I always feel honored and a little nervous. As photographers we all work a little differently and our visions are unique to each of us, so it’s just a teeny bit nerve wracking to work with another artist. In this case, Jasmine’s warm welcoming personality and ease in front of the camera, showed me that she was completely confident in my vision! The sessions when a client is most confident in the photographer are always the most stunning!

It doesn’t hurt that Jasmine is just glowing with joy and anticipation. Her sense of peace radiates from her smile and manner. We talked a little about what she was looking forward to most, and as most mothers in late pregnancy, getting to finally meet and hold her little one, was what her heart most desired. Can’t wait to meet this little one and see her mom and dad holding her in their arms!

White Rock Lake Engagement Session with a Puppy | Dallas Wedding Photography

Thrilled to share this adorable engagement session from a couple months ago! White Rock Lake was looking particularly beautiful this evening with that gorgeous late summer sunlight. Natalie and Matt are just adorable and I’m so happy that they brought Mia along for their engagement session. Incorporating your dog into your engagement session (or even family session) makes perfect sense! When your pup is part of the family, having beautiful photos with him in them is extra special! And when the puppy is as cute as Mia, it was hard not to have puppy fever after this session!  

Dallas Arboretum Motherhood Session | Dallas Film Maternity Photography

So thrilled to be sharing this film maternity session I shot for my lovely friend Liz, at the Dallas Arboretum. Liz brought along her 1.5 year old little one for part of the session and she was so cute. Busy and curious, as any toddler, she ran around exploring and laughing, but was more than happy to give her baby sister, kisses and her mama, hugs.

Having a second child brings a whole new set of changes to a family. You already know to expect the sleep deprivation and the constant needs of a newborn, but you don’t know how you’ll manage that and the previous life with your first born. Liz’s composure and peace about this new little one is so inspirational. It is such an honor to photograph motherhood and families. What a gift a new life is and I can’t not wait to meet this little one!
