Bryce & Lexi {Dallas Teen Portrait Photographer}

Bryce and Lexi were a blast in the studio.  I've know these two since they were in elementary school back when I was splitting time between photography and being their school librarian.  Last time I photographed the whole family in their beautiful backyard but this time it was just the two of them and a change of scenery.  Bryce is now driving (Yikes)!  And Lexi is in junior high.  Oh... And they pretty much rock.

Cotillion {Dallas Tween Photographer}

Last night was the first night of Cotillion for my son.  Boys may not really WANT to sign up to put on a suit and dance with girls at this age... But I think my tween son, along with MANY of his friends, ended up having a really good time.  This was the first time Campbell has actually worn a suit. He has worn a tie before... But that has been a black skinny tie with short sleeve edgy plaid shirt, jeans, and his standard checked Vans.  I was a pretty proud mom when he stepped out of his room in his black suit and black & white gingham tie.  But I still can't believe how fast he is growing up.  Please make time stop!

Welcome Baby Emma {Dallas Newborn Photographer}

Remember this little one?  She was very close to arriving when her family joined me for a session full of love just a few months ago.  Naturally, I was so excited when her mommy, Lindsay asked me to do her newborn pictures.  Little Emma may have waited awhile before she fell asleep for us but once she did she was out.  Which gave us lots of time to get some sweet sleepy shots and for me to chat with Lindsay and her mom, Lori, during the shoot... love them!

Congratulations to Lindsay, Chris, and big brother, Tanner, on such a beautiful addition to your family!

My Little Space Featured {Dallas Photographer Studio}

As a photographer you have to multi-task and love many aspects of your business... shooting sessions, building relationships, editing images, delivering a great product to clients and knocking their socks off, and so on.   This business takes passion, love, talent, time, dedication... and money.  Well, while you are doing all of that it certainly helps to have a happy place to work.  When I shoot, that happy place is usually on location but last year we expanded my happy place by adding on a studio, designed by my architect husband, Robert Croysdale.  Every morning I step through the door of the studio I'm invigorated and ready to dive in creating portrait art!   I blogged some images of the space back in August so you may have seen it before. 

Today, I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that my little happy space has been featured on the Epiphanie blog.  Hop on over there to see the feature... and while you're there check out their amazing camera bags.  I love my mustard color Lyric and the turquoise colored Lola Epiphanie bags!  They are seriously camera bag perfection! Hard to stop at just two and sure I'll be adding more!

Enjoy the feature on Epiphanie!  I know I did!
