Emily McGartland… My sister from another Mr…  I’m so blessed to have FINALLY gotten all your family members in front of my camera.  LOL!  I believe the last time she said they had a full family photo session was when she was in high school.  Meaning… this is going to be the BEST Christmas present […]

The McGarland’s | A Grapevine Botanical Family Session

So thankful to do life with this family!   We have one of the best small group families from church.  All our kids are around the same ages and it’s basically organized chaos each time we all get together for our monthly gatherings.  Out of all the families that we are connected to, I’ve always […]

Seris Family | Flippen Park Family Session

And baby makes 5!!!!   What a special time in life where your babies become siblings (again!).  I can only imagine (and will only imagine) what Declan would be like as an older brother.  For Katie & Jake, they get to witness this happen first hand with their little Derek.   Addie is already such a […]

Nelson Family | A Frisco, Texas Family Lifestyle Newborn Session

“A mother’s love will never end.  It’s there from beginning to end.”   This mother daughter session was so special to me.  Each little lady… little woman… (what should we call it these days when they are in between the high school to elementary phase??  LOL!) is in their own unique stage of life.  One […]

Pennington Family | An Arbor Hills Girls Day

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family of three from our home church.  Jessica is in charge of the children’s program there and we’ve been so blessed to have her in our family’s lives as our kids attended Mother’s Day Out for a couple of years.  She is such a giving, loving […]

Janscha Family | A Harry Myers Park Family Session

The bonds of friendship and brotherhood (Nick was in Theta Xi) in college are unbreakable.  You meet each other during the best season in life where everyone is growing into the adults they want to be.  We step out of our parent’s home, move away from our family and create a new one.  And no […]

Little Miss Olivia | A St. Louis Newborn Lifestyle Session

I’m so blessed to do what I do!!  I get to meet amazing families like the Burkhaulters each time I go into a family portrait session.  I am allowed the opportunity to witness their family through a camera lens and lock memories into a photograph for them to hold onto for years to come.  I […]

Burkhaulter Family | A Frisco Commons Family Session

I think Jim Croce said it best… “If I could save time in a bottle The first thing that I’d like to do  Is to save every day ‘Til eternity passes away  Just to spend them with you”   Those lyrics kept popping up in my head as I edited this sweet family of three’s […]

I dare you not to smile as you go through this family session!  🙂  I’ve honestly tried and cannot do it.  Each photo is sweeter than the last.   This family is absolutely amazing!  I cannot believe I have been photographing them for two years!  When I first picked up my camera, I had originally […]
