A Big Crew {Dallas Family Photographer}

Let's see if I can name them all... Shannon & John with their kids, Luke (8), Jace (5), twins Carpenter & have (10 months);  David & Kelly with their kids, Brayden (4) and Bradleigh (2), and Shannon & David's super sweet parents, Jack & Peggy.  Whew!  What a crew!  This big family went with me one morning to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.  I always love the location and this time I thoroughly enjoyed wading in the creek there where we got some great shots.  The boys even made a faux campfire!  Such fun!  So glad this crew was able to get together for a session while Shannon & John's family was visiting from overseas!

Sweetness {Dallas Child and Family Photographer}

There is just something I adore about kissing photos!  I tend to shoot and show them a lot... I just love to surround myself with them.  They are full of such sweetness.  This session had several of those sweet little moments among this beautiful family.  I adored meeting Tracy & Kreg and their little girls, Mallory & Emerson so much!

This session was shot at the beautiful Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.
I love shooting there... Call (214)341-0955 to schedule yours!

Making Up for Lost Time {Dallas Child & Family Photographer}

Oh my goodness... it has been forever since I blogged a session!  As you may know, fall is insanely busy for portrait photographers, so I have not had much of a chance to show you some session highlights.  Well, to reward you for your patience here is a giant, dare I say Super Blog, of highlights from a recent session with some favorite repeat clients... Kristen and Ray and their adorable kiddos, Chloe and Parker.  Loved seeing how much they have grown since last year's session.

We met this year at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano.  I think one of my favorite parts was when they got out of the car and ran down the sidewalk with arms outstretched and saying, "Tracy!"   I adored it!  And, I love this location... great suggestion, Kristen!  Lots of love and playtime in this session and just too many to share.  They are seriously a beautiful family!

Location Scouting Partner {Dallas Child Photographer}

Every day that I get to take a child's portrait I realize how much I love my job.  But some days, I get to to mix my job with my family and realize just how lucky I am.  My son, Campbell, went with me on a location scout last week after school.  It was an interesting trip full of wrong turns and lots of good conversation.  By the time we finally made it to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano we only had about 30 minutes before sunset.  And on top of that the place is huge! But we did manage to get in a little mini-session.  I would have loved to have had an hour and a half there with him.  We loved it and we plan on going back again for more location scouting this week and soon we plan on dragging along the hubby and dog for a relaxing afternoon.  Thanks honey... I love you!
