As a photographer, the best compliment I can receive is to be asked to take photos for a family as they grow and change through the years. So I was very excited to meet up with Davia and her family for Daevon’s senior photos, as well as take some family photos. I have been taking photos of Davia and her family since 2012! My how time flies!
We met up in downtown Tyler, and also took a few pictures along the Azalea trail, which is in full, beautiful bloom at the moment!
Along with participating in track and basketball at school, Daevon is also a great big brother! Congratulations Daevon on your graduation!
I had so much fun meeting up with Maggie & Cameron at The Boulders on Lake Tyler for their engagement shoot. These two are adorable together and have such great chemistry. It was a perfect evening for photos- albeit a bit buggy! No joke, I had to edit some of the mosquitoes out of the photos! But it is that time of year in Texas :P
There was an absolutely gorgeous cotton candy sunset which made for some great photos. Thanks so much for a fun shoot guys, looking forward to the wedding! It will be here before you know it!
I'm going to get a little nostalgic here! I have been blessed with having older siblings (about 10 years older than me- I always like to remind them of that fact!) In the year 2000, when I was 13 years old, I became an Aunt to my first nephew, Eric.
I have always LOVED being an Aunt to so many nieces and nephews- it has given me a lot of practice when it comes to raising my own kids now! When Eric was little, no older than 2 or 3, he would follow me around and imitate me, as you can see below where we are both striking the same pose! Try not to envy my braces or awesome late 1990s glasses. Oh and I definitely have a turtle sand box in my back yard now, just like the one you can see through the window here!
Fast forward to 2018 and Eric is a senior in high school preparing to graduate. I don't even want to think about how old that makes me feel! We are so proud of what a caring, fun and funny, hard-working, talented, Christian man you are. We love you Eric and Congratulations on your graduation!
I met up with Skylar and Connor on an absolutely FREEZING afternoon for their engagement session this past weekend. These two were absolute troopers! Thank goodness there was a fire pit to provide some warmth during breaks! I had fun getting to know this sweet couple as we braved the elements together. These two have a natural chemistry and it really comes across on camera. I especially enjoyed the waterfall and awesome Dr. Pepper sign at The Boulders.
Thank you two for an awesome session!
I met up with Casie and her family this past weekend at their place, hoping to take advantage of the mild fall weather and get some photos outside. Well, this is Texas after all and wouldn't you know it, there were 20-25 mph winds that afternoon! So we improvised and took the shoot indoors. Luckily, they are all so photogenic that it doesn't matter where they are photographed! :) And also there's the fact that Casie's house has some really great spots for photos.
Thank you guys for being flexible- let's meet up again soon and try for outdoor photos!!
I met up with the Hensley family in Whitehouse for a family photo session/1 year smash cake session for their youngest this past week. As you can see their two boys are so adorable, and despite the wind and the cold, we still got some great shots! I absolutely loved the bear smashcake that Lynsey herself made and the decorations were perfect as well. Thank you guys for a fun shoot!
I met up with one of my favorite families at the Children's Park in Tyler to take pictures of their precious 1 year old for her birthday! Along with birthday portraits, we also took some very sweet photos of her with big brother, they are just TOO cute together! Enjoy this preview of the pics!
