Oh my goodness! I absolutely loved this family/maternity session with The Enriquez a few weeks ago! Rebekah and her little family was seriously the absolute perfect family I've had in a while. They were so easy going and so full of love for one another - and if you know me, I love capturing that kind of connection! I'm excited to share a few of my favorites and hope you all will fall in love with them just as much as I did! 

Rebekah

I'm so excited for you, Eric and Rio on adding another addition that will bring so much more love and joy to your lives. Baby Nora is going to be so loved and protective by big brother Rio! Thank you for having me capture these precious memories for you and your family! <3

Fresh 48 | Young Hospital Fresh 48 Session at Baylor Regional Medical Center | Dallas Newborn Lifestyle Photographer

This super sweet Goodall Hospital Fresh 48 session at Baylor Regional Medical Center was such a blessing for me to photograph. The Goodall Hospital Fresh 48 session reminded me the importance of siblings and family. It also reminded me how fast time flies, and how much we need to appreciate the time we spend together, because trust me, it moves quicker than we think. Being a mom myself, I am reminded all the time of how much we have to cherish this time with our precious little ones.

While I spent time with DeAnna and her sweet family, I've forgotten how small and fragile a newborn baby is. How sweet their scent is and how delicate they are. I reminisced to when my little girl was just as small and delicate as DeAnna's newborn daughter, Makenna. Oh how bittersweet it is! I didn't get the opportunity to have a Fresh 48 session with my little girl, nor did DeAnna with her son - so when I received an email from her inquiring about one, I was so excited to help photograph this precious moment for her. 

Austin who is DeAnna's firstborn was so excited to have a new little sister. He wore the cutest big brother shirt and showed it off proudly! He wasn't used to her yet but he was very curious of her and would often peek at her every now and then. I can just tell that he's going to be the best and big protective brother to his little sister Makenna. 

So raw and beautiful parenthood is! Congratulations again to DeAnna & Mark, your family is perfect <3

Eva & Fahim | Outdoor Maternity Session | Bob Woodruff Park

Wow, I've been so behind on blogging! This spring and summer has been so busy as wedding season is upon us. I've been so blessed to witness so many beautiful couples getting married or about to get married! Not only have I been blessed to document weddings this year but also families, maternity and newborns!

I'd like to share with you all today, Eva & Fahim's maternity outdoor session! They were such a lovely and sweet couple. Eva and Fahim had been trying for over 2.5 years and finally got pregnant. They were so thrill that they were expecting and going to be parents!

I loved that they were so comfortable with one another and with me! You can really feel the radiant connection they had in these portraits, and the affectionate connection they had for their baby girl. It is with pleasure for me to announce that they delivered a healthy baby girl on Mother's Day in May of 2017. How beautiful is that?! Motherhood is simply raw and beautiful <3
 

So happy for you, Eva & Fahim! Enjoy parenthood as your baby girl's first year is going to fly by! They really do grow up so fast, so enjoy and capture every little moment as much as you can <3

 

The Hoffmann Family | Family Session at Bob Woodruff Park in Plano, Texas

I present to you all, The Hoffmann Family. I'm not even sure where to start to share with you all about this wonderful family. It's a funny story actually.

I remember exactly a year ago, that Kevin, Emeri and I were shopping at the cheese section in Walmart and we came across Taryn and Maven. Our little babies were the struck of a conversation and they were so little back then! It just hit off! We made some small talks and since I didn't have any mommy friends yet at the time, I asked for Taryn's phone number. That following next week, we all met at Chuy's (BEST MEXICAN FOOD EVER!) and did proper introductions and got to know one another!

I didn't think that Taryn, Mark and Maven would become such a great impact on my little family. We've had numerous play dates and family dates. It's always refreshing when we all got together because having the company of another family with a toddler was nice. My family is far from me, along with my niece and nephew, whereas Kevin's side of the family doesn't have any other children near Emeri's age to play with. Maven is only 6 months older than Emeri, and so we all got to watch them grow together. They're still getting used to playing with one another (haha) but it's still pretty awesome!

When Taryn told me that they would like to have a family session and include Isaiah, who they've been fostering since the end of last year, I was more than happy to gift them this session. Seeing how this experience has made them and their family stronger was uplifting. It takes a great responsibility and selfless heart to take someone in and provide for them. Isaiah is just the sweetest teenage boy that is musically talented. I know that he will go far, as long as he doesn't stop chasing his dreams. It's cliche to say but it's so true. Never stop chasing your dreams!

Our session was so much fun and we had the most gorgeous light after a couple weeks of thunderstorms! It couldn't have been more perfect.
 

I'm so blessed to have met this family and proudly call them our friends! I hope that these memories captured will forever be in their heart no matter where this road takes them. We love you guys! <3
