Oak Cliff Family Session

I met Molly and Helen and their parents on the Davis Street Espresso bus, which to be honest is where we've met most of the families we know in our neighborhood. Its a true community hub. Being a mom of triplets means when I spot other young multiples I feel an instant connection to what life is like for that family. After many overlapping coffee mornings we finally scheduled a session on that very bus and caught some of the magic that makes four year old twins so special. I also LOVE that the girls chose their own dresses for the session and went with their favorite super sheroes. Win-win!

We wrapped up the session at a new mural in the Bishop Arts District, painted by another friend of mine, the super talented Haylee Ryan in collaboration with Courtney Miles

 

Dallas Arts District Family Session

The Arts District that sits just between downtown and uptown Dallas is one of my favorite spots to explore. There's an endless variety of textures and colors to add interest to photos and I love seeing the way little ones interact with their surroundings. The Richters and I had done several sessions in a more natural setting, so for Ada's mid-year session we decided to mix it up a bit and I love how it turned out. 

Millie is 2

Any time a friend or acquaintance announces they're expecting a baby I quietly hope that I'll one day get to make family portraits for them. It just brings me so much joy to capture all of the little details and mannerisms unique to each family. The Joneses were no different, so when Michele reached out and asked me to do 2 year portraits of Millie I of course couldn't wait for our session. We wandered around one of my favorite spots in Dallas—Fair Park. Its such a fantastic location for family photos when the fair is not in town. The grounds are beautiful, the buildings are full of art deco details, and its easy to walk around with little ones since there aren't cars everywhere.

Millie was delightfully 2, following anything that caught her eye, squealing in delight at flowers and butterflies, and teasing her parents by running away from them just at the moment they were about to steal a kiss.
