Beautiful Summer Maternity Session in Dallas, Texas

Warm and glowing, and filled with joy. That’s how I would describe this gorgeous maternity portrait session in Dallas, TX. When this couple received their finalized photos, the husband described his expectant wife as “radiant”, and I completely agree! She absolutely looks so radiant and full of love for the sweet little one she’s currently carrying.

This couple’s love for each other is evident and shines through in their photographs. They have such a joyful spirit, and I can tell that their baby boy will be completely loved and cherished.

At Home Baby & Family Lifestyle Portrait Session in the DFW Area

A warm and sunny summer Texas day made for these bright and cheerful outdoor family portraits! Then we stepped inside for a more calm and cool setting to photograph. It’s always a pleasure to witness a family full of joy and love for one another, and this particular portrait session was filled with the best of it!

The main purpose of these family portraits was to welcome the newest member of their family. This sweet baby boy was full of so many smiles. (There are some pretty hilarious photos of him with a stack full of “light reading”. Don’t be surprised if this little guy grows up to be a CEO one day!)

I’m always grateful when clients let me into their home to document their lives. This family welcomed me, and I had a wonderful time capturing these sweet memories for them.

“A house is made of wood and stone, but only love can make a home.”

Baby Preston: Newborn & Family Lifestyle Portrait Session

When I arrived at this beautiful home to photograph a newborn session, I had no idea I would get to meet the most easy-going newborn ever. What a precious, good-natured boy! Baby Preston was a natural in front of the camera and didn’t seem to mind being photographed one little bit. I hope this tiny one stays super calm and oh-so-sweet for his wonderful parents always :) 

P.S. I just love the verse written above baby Preston’s crib:

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
— Deuteronomy 31:6

Baby Aubrey's 6-Month Portrait Session with Her Parents | McKinney, Texas

Baby Aubrey turned 6-months-old, and her family celebrated with a portrait session to document this special time in her life! Full of pink Crepe Myrtle blossoms, this location in McKinney, TX provided the perfect backdrop to highlight this sweet baby’s smile. And her adorable outfit was the perfect complement to her surroundings. 


Early morning sunrise sessions are a favorite way to capture special memories of loved ones during the hottest months of Texas summertime! And to provide even more relief from the heat, this particular morning was completely overcast. Did you know that overcast days don’t have to mean dark and gloomy photos? (Of course it helps when you’re photographing a baby whose smile radiates light better than the sunniest Texas day :)


Aubrey is a sweetheart with such an easy-going personality. She seems perfectly content just spending time with Mom and Dad. It’s always a joy to photograph families who love each other so openly. Being photographed can often feel like an awkward experience, but if you just focus on smiling and enjoying being with your loved ones you are sure to get photographs that you will cherish for years to come – photographs that radiate genuine smiles and highlight the connection you all share.

Today’s little moments become tomorrow’s precious memories.

If you’re reading this blog post and have been considering having family portraits made, feel free to take a look around my website for inspiration! With autumn approaching, it’s often the ideal time to start planning your family’s portrait session. Here in the north Dallas area, it might not feel like fall for a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning ahead. In a few months’ time, the air will get a chill and the colors will begin to change. Fall is often the busiest time for family photographers, so if you plan to do a portrait session before the year’s end for updated family photos, Christmas cards, or gifts… start planning now. 


Your portrait session should be a reflection of your family, so be sure to hire a portrait photographer who is focused on bringing out your family’s genuine spirit and special connection. Learn More
