Erin & Friends :: Birthday Session

Erin is one of the sweetest girls I know.  She is kind, sweet, funny and loving.  To celebrate her special birthday, Erin and her closest friends decided to spend the day enjoying downtown Fort Worth.  I tagged along to make sure we captured the fun these sweet girls had hanging out together, and I so enjoyed my time with them! Their sweet spirits and contagious laughter was so refreshing, and I absolutely loved how much they enjoyed each other!

Sylvia & Norm :: Wedding Session

Love is such a gift!  This last weekend was a great reminder to me how precious love is.  Sylvia is the mother of my dear friend Natalie, and the grandmother of Madison.  Several years ago, her husband passed away. Although I never met him, I have to think he was someone fabulous, based on the way his family loved him.

Over this year, the Lord brought Norm into Sylvia’s life, a tender-hearted and sweet man of God, who very much loves Sylvia.  This last week, we all got to witness a beautiful moment as Norm and Sylvia got married.  It was the most wonderful ceremony, celebrating the heart of the Lord for us and how marriage is really His creation.  It also was a beautiful picture of how the body of Christ functions together, as family and friends worked closely to bless this couple with a very special afternoon.  I am so blown away to see how this family honored their mother and welcomed Norm in as part of the family.  Definitely the coolest family ever!

Norm and Sylvia, you both are precious, and I pray the Lord blesses you beyond your wildest imaginations!

The Hall/McCollum Family :: Extended Family Session

Several years ago, I was able to attend an event hosted by Kerygma Ventures (Successful Christian Living Ministries at the time) and was so blessed by the heart of this ministry.  Since then, I have kept close tabs on this ministry, and have loved seeing how God has worked through this ministry in a myriad of ways.  I also have been so blessed to have a chance to develop a friendship with the family behind the ministry, and they are fabulous!!  I had the pleasure of taking Karis and Brian’s engagement pictures (check out the love birds here!), so when she asked me about taking pictures of the whole extended family, I was so excited!  Check out what is going on with this fabulous ministry at www.kerygmaventures.com!

The Coxs:: Family Session

I love Danny and Heidi, and when they expanded their family with the addition of Ella, we all were excited to be honorary aunts and uncles!  This is Ella’s first Christmas, and what better way to celebrate with a fun family session in downtown McKinney, which is all decked out for Christmas…Charles Dickens’ style!

The Veitenheimers :: Family Session

It was the day after Thanksgiving, and the wind was not interested in the fact that we were trying to take pictures.  Luckily, this family has always been up for an adventure, and this day was no different.  I have known the Veitenheimers since I was in high school, and I am so grateful for the gift of their friendship!!  I was so excited when we started planning their family photo shoot, and I am even more excited to show off the finished product!

Clay and Christy :: Family Session

We had been planning our photo session for weeks.  Unfortunately, colds and sickness got in the way two weeks in a row, so when we were all finally healthy at one time, we rejoiced and finalized our plans.  Christy had picked a beautiful park outside downtown Fort Worth, and we were so excited for our session.  Just as we arrived, the ominous clouds started spitting rain at us.  Undeterred, we pressed on, determined to find dry land for our session.  I am so glad we waited it out, because we were able to capture some beautiful shots of this precious family!  Christy, thanks so much for being adventurous and flexible, I so enjoyed our afternoon!!!

Shane and Emmalie :: Daddy & Daughter Session

It was going to be a wonderful surprise for her mommy.  Emmalie and her daddy had come up with a fabulous plan for her mom’s birthday, a plan that involved tutus and sword fights.  Our time galavanting around Fort Worth and discovering fun little spots for our pictures.  Shane (the daddy) was such a fantastic trooper, and was up for even trying ballet at the request of his daughter.  I hope that Emmalie’s mommy was completely surprised on her birthday!

Gavin :: Birthday Session

Gavin is known as the Little Prince in his family.  So when his mom started planning his first birthday party, it was the perfect chance to incorporate this theme into his special day.  Gavin is seriously one of the most adorable little boys and is so sweet and happy, there is no way you can resist his charm!  He seemed to really enjoy the fact that he had his own cake, and really seemed to enjoy all the sugar!  Happy birthday Gavin!!  We all enjoyed celebrating with you!
