I’m not sure if we ever get a true “Fall” here in Dallas, but this time of year where it begins to transition from oppressive heat to pleasant warmth is just the best! We had a nice breeze and plenty of warm sun for this delightful family photoshoot as we dodged joggers, walkers, and cyclists who were all out soaking up this weather! These guys were an absolute treat to photograph – Riya, Zahin, and Zubin could not be cuter if they tried! Those smiles and Zubin’s curls, oh goodness – I was smitten:)Hope you enjoy this sneak peek of their beautiful family!

The last time you saw this family, there were only 3… check out that cute new addition! Like big brother Will, Drew came to them through the miracle of adoption, only this time around, the universe saw fit to fast-track his arrival! Surprise! And then there were 4! I still remember getting the email with a picture of Jodie and Spencer holding a baby and doing a double take as I read and re-read Jodie’s note, trying to wrap my brain around the fact that this was all happening (as I’m sure they experienced x100 when they got *the* call)! It took some time to get them all back home to Texas, but they are finally settling in and taking all the non-stop activity that comes with a new baby – and an almost one year old – in great stride. Drew is now a little over 4 weeks old, so he’s beyond the window for a traditional newborn session but we still managed to get a few sweet photos of him wrapped in the blanket that belonged to Jodie when she was little! He has porcelain skin and what looks like will be blonde hair – such a cutie. Trying to orchestrate a brother photo involved some skillful maneuvering, but I loved how the more candid shots of Will just checking out Drew turned out! Speaking of, Will now has a head full of beautiful curls and a bubbly personality to match! Today he was full of giggles and squeals, I assume because I’m SO MUCH FUN! A girl can dream. Meanwhile Wrigley the dog probably wonders if these new humans have mute buttons by the sound of her groans and sighs – we still love ya, Wrigs! It was a pleasure spending time with these guys and I could not be more thrilled for them. Welcome, Drew! You are so loved!

So glad I was able to meet up with this cute crew today! They’ve been forecasting rain all weekend, but luckily we didn’t see a drop and were able to get a family session in this afternoon, complete with bluebonnets! Brad and I have known each other for years through work, but this is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing his whole family – aren’t they a good looking bunch?! You will not be surprised to hear that little Miss Keely runs the show (I’ve got a little sister, I know how that goes), but big brothers Brandt and Drew don’t seem to mind and gave me lots of big smiles. It’s hard to outshine curls and cowboy boots, but they did an awesome job! After getting a few shots along Main Street, we ran over to the bluebonnet fields where we jockeyed for position to get a few of those trademark Texas shots. It’s a battleground out there, with photographers trying to stake their claim on the best spots! Hope you enjoy a few of my favorite shots – thanks again for a great afternoon, guys!


{ will, 7 months }

Just 7 short months ago, I was honored to document Will’s much anticipated arrival. It’s been such a pleasure watching Jodie and Spencer transition from husband and wife to Mom and Dad so effortlessly and naturally. How lucky they are to have found each other, and what a perfect family they make! This time around, we got Miss Wrigley in on the photoshoot and I practically squealed with delight when I saw how cute their pictures together turned out! A boy and his dog, is there anything more adorable? Will is just the smiliest little guy  (I was determined to catch those 2 little teeth in at least one shot!) and I can’t wait to see even more of his sweet personality emerge as he approaches his first birthday. Here are a few of my favorites from our time together!

It was no surprise that lots of folks were out this evening, enjoying the perfectly crisp Fall weather! And the light? So gorgeous. That small window of time just before sunset is the absolute best time to take pictures, and today it was particularly lovely. I’ve run out of clever ways to introduce these guys after 6 years, but it’s always an absolute pleasure to take their pictures! I was just looking back through my old photos of Lauren’s very first photo shoot 6 years ago at their old house (when I had NO idea what I was doing, but they kindly obliged me anyway) to the snapshots of me holding baby Harris at the hospital the day after he was born 2 years ago. I can’t believe how fast the years have just zoomed by, but I’m so honored to have captured many of their happiest memories!
