I so enjoyed my afternoon with Andrea and her sweet family out at the Grapevine Vintage Railroad as we captured their winter family photos!

It’s been such a joy to follow Levi and Heather from their engagement, to their pregnancy and maternity session (check back soon for that blog post!), to the first few days of sweet Sydney Reese’s arrival.  Boy was I glad we did their maternity session when we did, because Sydney made her entrance just days later! And it was with a small sense of pride that I noticed some of my work from their engagement session in their living room when I arrived for Sydney’s newborn photos.

Please enjoy just a few of my favorite photographs from her wonderful newborn photo session.



Our crazy Texas weather often makes it difficult to plan what to wear for Christmas family photos, well into the month of November.  And we definitely experienced that predicament with this family photo session.

Autumn is my favorite season… for the weather, for the leaves, for the apple cider, for the crisp fall air, and especially for taking autumn family photos! What do  photographers do when we are bored?  We look for new and beautiful places for family photo sessions! And I’ll be darned, but I refuse to be the plumber with the leaky faucet; I want lots of great photos of my own family surrounding us in our home!

It’s the Kennedy family, back for their second photo session!



We spent a weekend with Grandma Great Vivian and all the rest of the Polyak clan in August. Included in the weekend fun was the opportunity for Sawyer to get acquainted with his second cousin, Carson.

Baby Sawyer had his first birthday photo session, complete with a smash cake, at Pensacola Beach in Pensacola, Florida!



This large family from Fort Worth and beyond got together over the holidays and had me capture a few photographs to give to their father as a gift.
