the tatum family | dallas fort worth family photographer

well here i am….so behind on blogging sessions.  what better session to start off with than this adorable family from the fall that drove out all the way from the other side of dallas.  we were blessed with gorgeous weather + the most perfect sunset.  you would think that with one year old twins, the session would have been a little more difficult but it was the exact opposite!  those girls were the absolute sweetest, most precious things!!  the mom also happens to be a photographer, so i’m sure they are quite used to having their picture taken.  i found out that they actually share the same birthday as my son, jack….too funny!

tatum family, thank you for trusting me to document these precious moments with your baby girls!  i hope to see you all again soon.



my jack | dallas baby photographer

i’ve been doing so much better about snapping shots of my own kids, i just haven’t been very good about blogging them!  but if you follow me on my Facebook page i’ve been pretty good about posting shots there if you want to keep up with my recent work.

anyways, today i decided on a whim to take some diaper shots of jack in our bed.  it’s something i’ve been wanting to do for awhile now + have just never gotten around to doing it.  these are far from ‘technically’ perfect but as a mom, i love them so much because they completely show jack’s fun + carefree personality.  so here’s about 5 minutes worth of jack from today, for your viewing pleasure!  



matilda jane part two | dallas fort worth children’s photographer

if you saw my blog post yesterday about matilda jane’s new paint by numbers collection + you’re still on the fence about their clothes, i wanted to show you just how versatile (and gorgeous!) their products really are!

a few days ago i found a new spot that i thought would work great for photos…lots of trees, overgrown grass, perfect spot for pretty golden backlighting.  so of course i got the kids dressed up + took them out.  i mentioned in my previous blog post how lucky i am to receive hand-me-downs from my BFF + partner-in-crime courtney keim….when her daughter lily outgrows her matilda jane clothes, courtney ships them down here to me for my lauren.  but you know what?  katelyn gets use out of some of the items, too!  the dresses work perfectly as tops, which you see katelyn wearing here paired with her gap skinny jeans.  lauren is wearing a puffer tee + knot top dress from older collections.  all of these items have been worn time + time again, not only by my girls but courtney’s daughter as well….and look how great they still look?!  and their designs never go out of style.  my girls just love their MJ clothes because not only are they pretty but they are comfortable to wear, too.
