you’d never be able to tell from the photos, but oh my goodness it was cold the day of this session (back in december)!  this was my first time meeting this sweet family + i give them props for braving the cold + wind.  i wasn’t even sure i’d be able to click the shutter button on my camera because my fingers were so numb from the cold…haha!  but we found some shelter from the wind with some pretty light + moved along as quickly as we could.   Untitled-4 parks_web22 parks_web28 parks_web30 parks_web34 parks_web35 parks_web37 parks_web41

this was a session that was long overdue.  and of all days, for some reason i chose today to blog their session, even though i did this session all the way back in december.  well, i just happened to look at the date just now as i was typing this + realized that today is this beautiful couple’s wedding anniversary!  and oddly enough, that is exactly how i met them!  remember back in the wedding planning days, an online forum called the knot?  is that even still a popular thing??  i have no clue…haha!  but back then it sure was.  and that is exactly how i met bridgett + wayne.  it just so happened, that they were getting married at the same venue as us…and using almost all the same exact vendors.  and we were both planning from distances….i was in canada at the time + she was in connecticut, but we were both getting married in the dallas fort worth area.   we hit it off instantly + have been friends ever since….that was 10 years ago!  we have been through all life’s big events together…weddings, babies, career changes….and FINALLY we were able to meet up over the christmas holidays while they were here visiting family so that i could take some photos of their beautiful family.  we were blessed with beautiful weather that day…okay okay….it was a little bit chilly, but beautiful for a december day!  thank you so much bridgett + wayne for trusting me to capture these memories for your sweet family.  i can’t wait to see you all again!  and happy happy anniversary!!!  xoxo dallas fort worth extended family photographer dallas fort worth family photographer dallas fort worth natural light photographer dallas fort worth lifestyle photographer dallas fort worth children dallas fort worth child photographer fort worth family photographer mansfield family photographer grapevine family photographer flower mound family photographer coppell family photographer grapevine children southlake children lewisville children burleson children frisco children north richland hills family photographer keller family photographer plano family photographer dfw family photographer garland family photographer arlington family photographer dallas child photographer

as usual, i’m way behind on blogging sessions!  here’s another one from back in the fall with one of my favorite families to photograph.  i’ve been photographing them since their little guy was born + i loved being able to capture him + his beautiful sister getting bigger.  this is my one family that has really bad luck with the weather….i swear, every single time we have had a session booked, we’ve had to reschedule like 5 times! haha  we finally lucked out with some beautiful sunshine for this session, even though it was super cold that day.  maybe next time we’ll luck out with both sunshine + warm temps! dallas fort worth family photographer dallas fort worth child photographer dallas fort worth children dallas fort worth lifestyle photographer fort worth lifestyle photographer dallas lifestyle photographer dfw children dfw family photographer dfw child photographer dallas fort worth couples photographer dallas fort worth family lifestyle photographer dallas outdoor children dallas outdoor child photographer dallas natural light photographer children mansfield family photographer
