Lazy Sunday Afternoon

We recently spent a glorious Sunday afternoon with dear friends Sara Lee and Mike and their gorgeous 9-month-old, Marlowe. We haven’t seen them in ages, so BBQ lunch and watching our kiddos in the baby pool in their huge new backyard was a great way to get caught up. Before we hit the road, I had to get some family shots. Check out Marlowe’s eyes, they are absolutely stunning!

Maddie

Back in March, I had the honor to photograph my dear friends’ daughter, Maddie. She just turned 13 and is beyond gorgeous both inside and out. She’s a talented young actress and definitely one to keep on your radar. Pam and Joe, watch out!! Our son, Luke, adores her and to this day, when I get my camera out, he asks, “Mommy, are you going to take pictures of Maddie?” Oh, how I wish!

Valentine’s Day 2013

I recently took a private calligraphy refresher lesson from the very talented master calligrapher Susie-Melissa Cherry of Calligraphic Arts here in Dallas. I had a blast catching up with her and practicing script. After a few more days of practicing on my own, I decided to script some Valentine cards for my husband and family/friends incorporating some recent photos I took of Luke. I’m very pleased with the results considering my first class with Susie-Melissa was over 10 years ago and I haven’t practiced much since then. My letters aren’t formal or necessarily “correct,” but I was going for whimsical, so I think it works.

Baby Eva

I’m so excited to post these photos of sweet little baby Eva for her birth announcement. She was one week old the day we met and so very alert. I had the honor of photographing Eva’s big brother, Max, a couple of summers ago after meeting him and his mom, Megan, in swimming lessons with my son. Max and Luke have had some great times together and I look forward to watching Eva as she grows. Her announcement is the last image.

Will, Jake & Katie

On a very warm November evening, I had a blast with my son, Luke, taking family Christmas card photos with these three sweet kiddos. Luke tried to crash their party a few times, but we managed to get a few shots in before the sun went down. I love, love, love this time of year because I get to combine photography with typography to produce one-of-a-kind Christmas cards for my treasured clients. Their final family card design is the very last image.
