The Anglin’s Fort Worth family session took place early in the morning in Flower Mound. I prefer shooting in the early morning or evening in order to take advantage of the softer, golden light that we all adore. Another plus to morning sessions is walking away looking your best for the rest of the day!
The anglin family
I have had the pleasure of working with the Anglin’s since their oldest, Xander, was still in mom’s tummy! From 2017 to now, every session that I have with this precious family becomes my new favorite! Our first session together was a maternity session, since then we have covered just about all of the bases. I captured Xander’s newborn photos, milestone sessions, and lots of family sessions in between. Then when Eli came along, we did it all over again and loved every minute of it. As a photographer, there are always certain families that you have a soft spot for, that is the Anglin’s for me. They have offered unwavering support to me over the last four years and I hope we get to continue to create these magical moments together for a long time coming!
Having the opportunity to grow with a family truly is the most unique and rewarding aspect of being a photographer. I have made some lasting bonds and friendships with my amazing clients that I cherish! It is so fun to see how fast kids change from one session to the next. Documenting their growing personalities through photos is so special. Xander and Eli never fail to melt my heart with their sweet smiles.
Outfit choice for family photos
I love the outfits the Anglin’s chose for their Fort Worth family session! The fact that Amber is a pop of color in the group really draws your eye in to the photos. Burnt orange, denim and navy blues is a classic color combo and works especially well in the fall season. Tying in the subtle oranges in the trees with a pop of warmth in your outfits is genius.
My second wedding of my 2018 super, crazy, busy wedding season was for Kristen and Jack. The most adorable couple you’ll ever meet.
These two love birds met at Christ Churches youth group when they were in high school, fell in love, spent every moment together, until finally Jack proposed to Kristen under the Century Tree on the Texas A&M campus in September of 2017.
The ceremony was held at Christ Church Plano on July 28, 2018. It was a beautiful sunny day and the church was full of light. Like the whole world was smiling just for these two. They both agreed that saying our vows was the most memorable moment of the entire day and at that venue, it was definitely breathtaking.
After the ceremony the entire party met at the gorgeous Cross Creek Ranch in Parker, Texas for some food, fun, and lots of dancing. I’ve never seen a group so excited to dance to the song Africa. I loved it! Jack and Kristen never left each others side for a moment. You couldn’t help but smile at how in love they are.
Thank you and congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Lucas! I was so honored to be a part of your big day.
Hello Hello! I am back in the blogging game you guys. This time for real. I am going to be so on top of this.
Let me introduce you to something. His name is Maverick and he is the first baby boy I’ve gotten to shoot in a loooong stream of adorable girls. Weighing in at 10 pounds, I believe his mama said, and those little eyes that match his big sister’s. He stole my heart y’all!
This little family has been a part of my client family since 2016. Believe it or not, I met them when that curly haired little beauty was still in her mommy’s tummy. It was one of my favorite maternity sessions.
Then I found out they were expecting baby number TWO and guess who got to photograph that maternity session?
It was perfect and beautiful! I was so excited to finally meet baby Maverick when we finally had his newborn session in their gorgeous new home. Especially because his gender was a surprise just like his big sister’s was.
Here are some of my favorite moments of his newborn lifestyle session!
Oh and don’t forget, I offer discounts on baby bundles! Contact me here for details.
Getting to see a family become a family is a special experience. I met a gorgeous strong woman last year while she was pregnant with her son. Her name is Madeline. She was graceful and beautiful and I fully credit her with my maternity session boom. Her session was amazing and still one of my favorites. You can see it here and I’m sure you will agree with me 100%. She was fantastic! Fast forward to this past fall when she asked me to take family photos of her and baby Mateo. Not just any family photos. Their first family photos.
It was a cold morning but these 2 were bundled up and stuck it out like troopers. Mateo couldn’t get enough of the camera. Looking adorable in his fuzzy hat. We wandered around the park and snuggled in the blankets. We played with leaves and sticks and had all the fun that early morning. It was such a great experience to see this young woman go from being pregnant and excited to meet her baby to being the perfect mommy for her son. Two puzzle pieces that were simply meant to be together.
Being a single mom is not easy. My mother is law was a single mom of 5 boys and just hearing her stories of all the crazy moments, all the fun moments, and all the wonderful memories is amazing. All the credit in the world to single mothers out there doing everything they can for their families. I know Maddy was nervous about taking these photos being just the two of them but I think their perfect. This is their family. This is their life. I know when Mateo is older and graduating from high school, he’s going to see these photos and say “Wow. My mom did so much for me.” and he won’t be wrong. Miss Maddy, you are a genuine, kind, caring person and it’s such a joy to see you be a mom to this little cutie.
Here are some of my favorites from this family session…
