Documenting pregnant bellies and bumps is something that I think is so beautiful! After all, becoming first time parents is such a HUGE life change and an event in life that is so miraculous and mysterious! This seminary couple wanted to capture their third trimester and first pregnancy by exploring 'outside' of the city of Dallas. So we made our way to White Rock Lake and caught some prime sun.  Check out this excited daddy & momma-to-be! 


Meet the Baileys - a family of [almost] four with so much life and love one another. J is a typical little boy, ALL toddler who loves to run around, play and explore.  This sweet family has been through a lot with their son.  J was born with HLHS but he is one strong two year old dude, that's for sure.  J is a Heart Hero, with a showcase of beads identifying every surgery, transfusion, IV, and poke.  His mom said it best, "he has half a heart and a rockin' scar showing how brave he is!" What a joy it is to be able to capture the stories of families through photography and specifically celebrate the health and happiness of J!


Last week I traveled to Minnesota to shoot a wedding and I got to sneak in a newborn session with baby Jacob!  What made this shoot extra special is that my mom was there to assist with baby placement and make amazing suggestions for backdrops and props.  When you mix the help of my mom, all the silly facial expressions of this small human and my dad's amazingly green lawn it makes for a perfect summer newborn session in Minnesota!
