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 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!

Malinda and Marshal :: Sibling Session

Malinda and Marshal are two of my favorite kids.  They are both so sweet and well-behaved, and absolutely as cute as they can be!  There is nothing cuter to me than a little boy in a tie!!  Our afternoon was full of playing, laughing and avoiding ant hills, and it all was fabulous!  M & M, thanks for playing with me and letting me take your pictures! You both are so cute!

Jay and Hayden :: Sibling Session

He kept asking when we were going to play with the balloons. Hayden was so excited about the fact that we had balloons with us, and could barely contain his excitement!  Jay, the awesome big brother, did an awesome job keeping his little brother entertained throughout the shoot.  It was so much fun to spend the afternoon with two sweet boys and remember the simple moments that make us love life a little more.
