I feel so happy to work with such wonderful, low-key, stylish clients.

Looking forward to editing Sarah and Tim’s Fort Worth stunner. Such a fabulous wedding.

Meanwhile, let’s celebrate a few bridal portraits and details.

The Extension of Love | From Engagement to Baby

Life is wonderful.

It flows with such grace.

Capturing moments in time that showcase love at its finest …

well, it’s one of the best feelings in the world.

Here is a story of a darling trio:

In May 2010, I photographed their engagement portraits.

The sunset was particularly memorable that evening …

So was their connection.

Flash forward to September 2010 and we were smiling our way through bridal portraits.

Every inch of her was glowing!

October 23, 2010 was their wedding.

It rained. A lot.

And then the rain stopped …

just in time for us to dart across the street from the chapel — dodging traffic — to a field before the sun went down.

In what felt like seconds, we were able to snap the perfect sunset shots.

.. such happiness ..

Flash forward to December of 2012 and their sweet son was born.

All newborn sessions are special to me,

but I particularly love photographing a child when I have such a special connection to the parents.

And now today! He is already one year old!

Isn’t he the cutest?!

(He fit IN that same radio flyer during his newborn session!)
