As you can see, I took a little hiatus from blogging, but after editing this session a few weeks ago, I knew I had to get back to it and share these images with you guys! I just loved working with the Satterwhite family so much, not to mention the incredible light (and location!) we had. It made my job way too easy! We started out capturing some family photos, then a few of sister Sully as she prepared to celebrate her first birthday…so stinkin’ cute, y’all! Be sure to scroll all the way down to see them. I truly had a blast with Logan, Peyton, Ford, and Sully, and I love every single image we got :)

A few weeks ago, we had a much welcomed (and much needed!) break in all this dreary weather as the prettiest sunshine came through for Mark and Olivia’s engagement session.  You would never have guessed it was 40 degrees outside with all that sun, not to mention how incredible these two did in spite of the frigid temps! They brought along their adorable pups and made the most of every single minute, and I left feeling so excited about the images. So many favorites…

“A new baby is like the beginning of all things — wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities…”

I was completely smitten with baby Sarah, so tiny and precious and remarkably photogenic! She never cried; just snoozed and smiled and cooed the morning away. It really was such a wonderful session and looking through these photos, I am reminded yet again how lucky I am to do what I love, and with the very best clients. These moments are so precious and my favorite thing is getting to capture this fleeting time to remember always…

This. This is the kind of session that really makes my photographer heart burst. I LOVE when clients opt for a session that captures the essence of their family — their interests, talents, how they love each other. That’s exactly why I started joyFULL sessions, so people could capture real moments of their family. The Boyters embodied that perfectly, allowing me to move with them through their home as they hung out and played together, even grabbing their favorite instruments for a crazy cool jam-session-turned-dance-fest. I had a blast capturing all of it for them and I LOVE the images we got…

Man have I gotten lucky with so many wonderful new clients. Wyatt’s was my very first official newborn session after relocating to DFW and he certainly started me off on a high note. Just look at that sweet face! Big sister is just as precious, ever eager to watch and help and sneak in a kiss or two for her new brother… clearly I loved getting to photograph the Bays family, and the many images that came from our time together:
