Back-to-School Mini Sessions

Here are a few photos from my back-to-school mini sessions this past weekend. How lucky am I to have the opportunity to photograph such cute kiddos???

I had one sweet girl who woke up sick the morning her session was scheduled. So, we've rescheduled for October 24th. I have time for a few more that evening. E-mail me at if you are interested in a slot!

This little beauty is a friend of my daughter. She is as sweet as she is beautiful!!

My girls came along with me for these sessions. It was my daughter's idea for Miss M to lay under her brother on the desk. I thought it was such a cute idea!!

When I decided to do these vintage inspired back-to-school minis, I asked my dad if I could borrow his old trucks. He has some metal trucks from when he was a little boy. You can see one of them in the bottom right corner. I think they looked so cute in these photos!!

When my dad brought me the old trucks, he brought me this old chair from when he was a kiddo. I think it will be my new favorite prop for little ones!!

Little Miss C was a natural! She was so easy to photograph. What a beautiful smile she has!!

Mr. C was s little too cool for the vintage desk! But we got some great shots of him in the woods at my neighborhood park!

What a handsome fellow this little guy is! Watch out girls!!

Contact me if you are interested in one of my slots on the 24th for more back-to-school photos!!

Miracle Baby Kate

I had the pleasure of photographing a friend's beautiful baby girl this past week. Kate is truly a miracle!! She was born at 24 weeks & 2 days (roughly 16 weeks early). At birth, Kate weighed 1 pound and 7 ounces and was 12 inches long. She had a rough start in the life and stayed in the hospital for 115 days.

To look at her now, you would never guess how her life began. She is 9.5 pounds at five months old and has filled out to a very healthy looking baby!

Because of her age and size, we weren't able to get some of the cute newborn poses, but I guess that her proud parents (& big brothers) will love and treasure these photos. Just look how far she has come!!

This baby girl is so loved!

You just have to love that little tummy!!!

Here's one with her beautiful mom!

Here's a photo of Kate in her first few days of life. To put her size in perspective, the hat she has on fit in the palm of my hand...and my hands are small! What a blessing and a true miracle she is!

My Sweet Bailey

We had to say goodbye to our 12 year old Lab, Bailey, yesterday. She had a good life, but had multiple health problems over the last few months. Her health was deteriorating and we didn't want to see her suffer any longer. There were many tears shed yesterday.

I knew that this day was coming soon. This past weekend, we took our girls and Bailey to our neighborhood park for some photos. I thought I would share this one.

She was the absolute sweetest dog and we will miss her greatly.

Goodbye, Sweet Girl!

Back-to-School Mini Sessions

Are you tired of the boring school photos that your kiddos bring home? Want something a little different. I'm now offering my first mini-sessions with a back-to-school theme! Please see below for dates and details!!

I took my girls, my nephew, and a few neighbors out for some sample photos last night. We had so much fun doing these!

Additional Details:

What is the cost of the mini session?

The cost is $50.00+tax for your 1st child, $45 for your second child, and $40 for the third or more (siblings only). Each child will receive a 15 minute mini session. This will also include:

(1) 8x10

(2) 5x7s

(8) Wallets of your choice

Session fees will be due at the time of your scheduled session.

What dates and times will the mini sessions be held?

Saturday, Sept. 25th - 9 to 11 a.m.

Sunday, Sept. 26th - 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

If there is enough interest, I may add additional dates.

Do you have additional prints available?

Yes, I do!!

A la carte pricing:

11x14 - $32.00

8X10 - $15.00

5x7 - $ 10.00

4x6 - $ 5.00

(8) Wallets $8.00

These prices are discounted from my regular prices. Therefore, no coupons or discounts can be applied.

How do I sign up for a mini session?

Email me at or give me a call at 214-673-5554. Please let me know the number of children, ages, and if they are a boy or girl.

What if it rains or the weather is bad on the day of our mini session?

In case of inclement weather, mini photo sessions will be cancelled and rescheduled at a future date and time. If you have any questions about weather, please feel free to give me a call at 214-673-5554.

Where will mini sessions be held?

The location is set for a park in Flower Mound. Exact location will be given when you book your mini session.

When will I receive my pictures?

Please allow at least seven working days for editing. Once your images are ready for viewing, I will set up a password protected gallery. The gallery will be active for two weeks for you to place your order. Orders placed after the expiration date will be charged $10.00 to reactivate the web gallery. Once your order has been placed, please allow an additional seven business days for your prints to arrive.

What to wear?

Select clothing that’s colorful, vibrant and fun! Choose colors that are deep, rich and intense! Use patterns, textures and layers to add visual interest. Layers can be added and removed to create different looks in minimal time. When it comes to jeans, opt for the darkest indigo wash. These tend to be the most flattering and least dated. This is a vintage inspired session so anything vintage-looking or with a vintage feel would work. Think ties, jeans or linen pants, cute hats, button up shirts for boys. For girls, think whispy dresses or jeans and a cute shirt. Most importantly, we want everyone to be casual and comfortable in their attire.

What to bring?

Have any of your own vintage items? Bring them!! Hats, belts, scarves and funky jewelry is always fun. I'll have a few things to choose from, but you are welcome to bring whatever you want from home!

Can my child older than 9 be photographed?

Yes! However, we may not be able to incorporate the desk. We can use some of the other accessories to create the vintage photos.

When to arrive?

Please plan to arrive a few minutes early. This will allow you time to complete an information sheet and decide which accessories (if any) that you want in your photos!
