Grace and Faith | Mckinny TX Child Photographer

Aren't Grace and Faith lovely names? This was my first session with this family, but I think we will be seeing a lot more of each other. I am so glad that I was able to capture some moments with their grandmother. The move from California is going to be tough on all of them for while. There is something special about the bond between girls and their grandma!

3 Month Mini Session | Mckinny TX Child Photographer

I have a lot of inquiries about first year baby plans. Instead of offering a prepaid plan, I offer options for my clients who want pictures every few months the first year. Newborn, 6 month, and the birthday session are regular sessions, but I give you the option of doing a mini session for the 3 and 9 month stages. I couldn't have been happier with how this mini session turned out!

Tory's Bridal Portraits | Mckinney TX Wedding Photography

I promise...this is the last wedding post! Here are just a few from our Amarillo session. I was so thankful that my mom scouted locations after speaking to a local photographer. We couldn't have asked for a better spot!

The Wedding | McKinney Texas Wedding Photography

If you know me, you know that I don't "do" weddings.  Now don't get me wrong.  I love weddings.  I love the gorgeous dresses, the beautiful flowers, the intimate moments.   But with all the fun comes a ton of stress!  Being asked to photograph this wedding was such an honor that I had to accept and I am so glad that I did. Tory is practically family.   I have known her since birth and always adored the fact that we shared a name.  It still amazes me that she is a grown up!   Here are some of my favorites from their big day.  Enjoy!

Little J | Newborn Photographer Irving Dallas McKinney TX

It was such a pleasure seeing this family again, especially with their new addition! It is so much fun watching families grow.  Their big sis will be the focus of our next session.  I can't wait!

Zoe | Senior Photographer McKinney Dallas TX

The beginning of your senior year in high school is exciting on so many levels.  It is going to be a year full of firsts and lasts.  Zoe was a true pleasure to photograph.  She is stunning, with her long red hair and picked the perfect outfits to compliment her beauty and her personality.  I enjoyed her sense of humor and listening to her talk about her life.  It was a very eventful session, but totally worth all the unexpected places and visitors!  Thanks, Zoe!

Finally! | McKinney Dallas Baby and Family Photographer

I had been waiting to get my hands on this little doll since she was born!  Mom, dad, and sister braved the incredible heat and I am so glad they did.  We were all more than toasty by the end of the session, but it was definitely worth it.  Looks like this little one is going to have the same stunning blue eyes as her sister.  I'm not sure how daddy is ever going to be able to say no to these two!
