a little about me and my style....

Photography is in my heart and is as much a part of me as my arms and legs.  The best part of my job is hands down the people that I meet along the way.  Getting to know someone through my lens is so very rewarding and fun. I feel quite lucky to have landed this cool gig I call a job.  It is really so much more for me.  

my style

Simple.  No perfection required. I strive to capture the real-ness of each person.  I need you to be yourself and nothing more.

I will spend time capturing details about your kids. big gorgeous eyes, wispy hair, long eyelashes, silly faces, pouty know,that kind of stuff.  The important stuff that you love so much about them.  The things you will always remember.  

I will also spend time capturing the little details I see.  a found ladybug in the palm of a hand, a tin of crayons, a loved 'blankie', a little hand holding a flower, those simple things that made the session special.  These are sometimes my favorite images to photograph.

I keep things as natural as possile, without posing anyone.  I will simply direct you a bit and let life unfold while I snap away.  

Call me, book a session...lets have some fun!

Everywhere he goes…..

Still the same….

adorable smile and sweet nature.  The first image of Abbie was taken in 2008 and the second this past fall.  It is so much fun to look back and see how much my clients have grown.

little sister…

after posing with her big sister, it was time for this little star to shine.  These were taken at the end of her session.  She wandered over to the rock wall, climbed up and  gave me these gems.  Those adorable cheeks and missing tooth are toping the cute scale!

It’s cozy inside…

…taken during  the recent ice storm that hit DFW.  These adorable brothers  were scheduled for an outdoor shoot and the weather wasn’t cooperating.  I stopped by a local library and asked very nicely if we could use their window area to photograph.  So glad they appeased my requests.  The light in this space was amazing […]

The dog days of summer….

These two adorable brothers have been in front of my camera before.  They’ve grown up a bit since we last met and they have become the perfect (playful) gentlemen.  I spent the afternoon with them and their fun family this past September.
