Meredith & Jason :: Wedding in Ft. Worth

I never thought I'd hear the words "Hy-Vee" while shooting a wedding in Ft. Worth, TX!  But it all makes sense, when the bride, Meredith is from Illinois, a mere hour from where I grew up.  We met thru a mutual friend who is also from my hometown back in Iowa.  I've said before, it's a small world, people!  

Meredith and Jason met in 2008 playing softball, and thou it may not have been instant romance...the two became close friends...and, well, sometimes that turns into more!!  They both donned Nikes to dance the night away after the ceremony, and the groom had an amazing NY Yankees cake!  

The love they have for each other really showed on their faces all day and into the night, which ended with dance between just husband and wife, with no onlookers...such a sweet way to end the evening!  Here's to best friends falling in love!!

Venue: Belltower Chapel & Gardens
Florist: En Fleur
Bakery:  Society Bakery and Exquisite Perfection
DJ:  Black Tie Sounds
Caterer:  Vance Godbey's

Gray Family :: Maternity Session in Frisco

I'm finally back amongst the living!  After a family trip to CA, Baby G and I both came home sick!  We've been quarantined in the house for a week now, but finally both on the mend.  Whew!  I finally got a chance to edit some maternity images for my dear friends the Grays.  Allison and Von are expecting twin girls at the beginning of November.  We had to get a few pix of Big D (Daniel), and as usual, he stole the show!  (see last picture, that pretty much sums it up!!)

Daniel G :: Lemonade Stand mini

After a few scheduling delays...we were finally able to shoot Daniel's Lemonade Stand pictures! He was so adorable in his little suit! The rolled-up pants say, "I'm dressy, yet casual!"  Luckily, no lemons were harmed during shooting...thou I think more lemonade wound up on his suit that in his mouth!  What a handsome devil!

Baby Yanchak Makes 4 :: Family Maternity Session in Plano

Babies, babies everywhere!!  At least, all over my blog lately!  I'm always honored when people ask me to do maternity photos for them.  It's such a special time, whether it's your first or fifth baby!  My good friends Kendra and Cody, and of course Miss Harper toughed it out in the sweltering Texas June heat for some sweet photos before their new baby boy arrives in a few weeks!  Cody and I took the brunt of the suffering...as we both have a bazillion chigger bites as souvenirs of the shoot!  Gah!  I can't wait to meet their new addition!

Tanika & Eric :: Maternity Shoot in Plano

I love reconnecting with past clients now that we're back in Dallas!  I met Tanika thru a wedding website back in 2009, and thou they were married in Detroit, they had me take some local engagement photos for them!  It's so fun to see how everyone's lives have changed, and now Tanika and Eric are expecting their first baby, a girl, due later this summer!  They were such troopers, enduring heat, bugs and burrs (and Eric's jokes) at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano for this shoot!  I can't wait to meet their bound-to-be-gorgeous baby girl!
