Here we go

A doula client and fellow photographer friend took some sweet family photos for us yesterday evening.  I thought long and hard about what I wanted and this is what I came up with and I think it was captured perfectly.  Thankyou so much to Stephanie and Kevin of K&S Snapshots  for helping us with our exciting news

Underwater Maternity Session

I think last nights Underwater Maternity Session just topped my list of favorite Lasting Moments Sessions.  It’s always fun to work with families that allow me to dig deep and use all my creativity.  Yesterday was no exception.  On top of being an absolutely gorgeous mamma, this sweet client has a heart of gold.  I am posting a few sneak peeks here today while I continue to edit and decide on so many more wonderful captures.  Hope you Enjoy them as much as I do.  And if you like what you see then please contact Laurie Melissa Photography or check out the website for more details

Senior 2012 Portraits ~ Amanda

I probably say this about most of my sessions but I am going to say it again.  I had so much fun doing the Senior 2012 Portrais of Amanda.  Not only did I have a blast, I came out feeling like these were some of my most favorite portraits to date.  Amanda and her mom allowed me a creative mile and let me run with my ideas that I gathered from Amandas personality.  I am proud of the finished product and thrilled at the families reaction.  Thankyou to the wonderful family who allowed me to do what I do.

2012 Spring Family Portraits with the Murrah Family

I am sad that it took so many years to photograph this precious family.  I am however, so excited that in 2012 I did finally get to do a Lasting Moments Spring Family Portraits with the Murrah Family.  I could likely come up with many adjectives to describe this wonderful family but I think the pictures will speak for me.

Texas Bluebonnets and the adorable Ella Grace

Portraits in the Texas Bluebonnets are a tradition for many families here in North Texas.  I had the pleasure of capturing some lasting moments of the adorable Ella Grace last week.  We had beautiful flowers and lots of light and plenty a precious personality.

Spring is in the Air

It’s  April in Texas and Spring is in the air for sure.  Beautiful Texas Bluebonnet blooms and luscious trees make for gorgeous Spring portraits.  These two Sisters made my job pretty easy.
