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.

Enjoy her full slideshow here:

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.

Enjoy a few lasting moments from their session below.  Full Session Slideshow Here

Bluebonnet Portraits with Mae

What beautiful spring weather we have been having here in Texas.  That means time for Bluebonnet portraits and today it was with Ella’s sweet friend Mae.  Ella and Mae snuck in a few photos together but I think Mae stole the show for sure.  What an adorable, precious, little sweetheart!

I love these portraits so much that Mae is featured on my website.  Just click on any of the photos below and it will take you to see her big debut.


Piano Recital

My oldest daughter Breaunna Faith played in her very first Piano recital this evening.  Hats off to her fantastic teacher Karen Murrah and all the students who played piano or sang a beautiful song.  What an awesome night.  Breaunna we are so proud of you and all your hard work as you practice every day and stay dedicated.

Another Year Passed

Each year on my childs  birthday I stop and reflect on how quickly another year passed.  I think about not only the physical changes that have happened but voice, attitude, and personality.  Elijah is our only boy squished between 3 big sisters and 1 little sister.  He is proof that being surrounded by girls will in no way diminish his rough and tumble “All Boy” mannerisms.  Every new day with Elijah is truly a new adventure.  I love my sweet little man.

As I reflected on Another Year Passed, his 4th, I began to think about what or where we would take his birthday portraits.  I decided to take a risk and ask my 4 year old his idea and he said he wanted to take pictures with his skate board.  Immediately I knew where I wanted to go.  I think we captured some great lasting moments together that will be a great memory to look back on that marked another great year passed.
