Baby's 1st Christmas | Las Colinas Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting with this brand new family for this sweet baby girl's first Christmas portraits. How special is it to commemorate a faithful family's first Christmas with their first child? It just makes me so happy that I got to do it. You might remember her from the newborn session we did back in September: Love, Lovely, Loved.

Class of 2011: Megan | Southlake Senior Photographer

My gorgeous senior rep, Megan, is a total sweetheart. She's not only tall and beautiful (Hello, Angelina Jolie lips and Jennifer Garner dimples!), but she is an all-around awesome gal. She aspires to become a nurse and I truly believe that whether it be nursing or anything else she sets her mind to, she will accomplish it.

I love that all of my senior reps this year are such awesome representatives of what 18-year old girls should be. They are all sweet and talented, good students, and so impressive, each and every one of them. I am so proud to call them YLK photography reps and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Megan, the best of luck to you as you near your commencement... you're going to do great! Your future is surely waiting for you, filled with blessings.

A Pretty Lady and Her Boys | Fort Worth Family Photographer

Back in November, I got to meet with this handsome family for a relaxed session in Fort Worth. As I understand it, it was a job just for Mom to get everyone's schedules straight so that we could have our session. I guess that's what happens when you've got grown kids! Anyway, as most people know, having one's picture taken isn't usually a favorite past time of most men. I am glad to know from some feedback I got, however, that they didn't think our shoot was half bad. Hahaha! All I know is that I enjoy each of my sessions for different reasons... getting to hang out with little kids is fun, but spending a couple of hours with adults has its own brand of fun. Enjoy!

Holly Go-Sweetly | Grapevine Newborn Photographer

I had the joy of photographing this precious newborn and it was such a treat because I had gotten to take pictures of her family at my fall mini-sessions when she was all cozy inside her mama's belly. It is always such a neat feeling when I get to take someone's maternity portraits and then get to meet the little one. I almost always walk away from a session feeling "connected" to my clients in some way, but being with a family for "in" and "out" portraits makes me feel even closer to them. May this sweetheart and her family be blessed!
