SanAngeloBlog 20 Something Personal
Wow. What a great day today was. I am blessed to do what I love for a living but today I picked up the camera for myself and hit the road. My family lives out in West Texas near San Angelo and over the last 10 years I have been driving past things that were begging to be photographed. This morning I headed out on my own and made a 4 hour drive a 6 hour drive as I stopped and photographed some dilapidated old buildings. Here are some of my favorite shots from my road trip from old barns, an abandoned church and a few homes.

In addition these photos are featuring my new logo for Tracy Autem Photography. My new line will focus on my wedding and personal work. Lightly Photography will continue as my portrait line and weddings by my fabulous associate team. Please see more about the new line at

I will be on my way home in the morning and plan to shoot some more and can’t wait!

GreenwaldBelly 0001 Michelle & Jason   Expecting!
Michelle and Jason were one of my many awesome couples last year and the first to be expanding their new family. Michelle is due any day now and I can’t wait to see them again in just a few short weeks when the baby arrives. They have kept the sex of the baby a surprise so there is so much more anticipation about this little one. The Dr. keeps saying “he” when discussing the baby so they are thinking that it may be a boy or the Dr. is just super sneaky!

Since we have been working from my home the last few weeks while waiting for the new studio to be completed they came over last week and we took some time to document Michelle’s pregnant belly. Here are a few of my favorite shots and one of them from their wedding last year.

Lopez1yearBlog triptic Lucia, Aurelia & Mommy

These two little girls are dear to my heart. I started photographing them both about a year ago when little Lucia was born. Since then I was able to document her at 6 months and now again at almost a year! It is amazing to see how she has grown, started holding herself up and should be walking any day. Aurelia has turned into a three year old with attitude and spunk and it is so cool to see her becoming herself.

Mommy and me sessions are some of my favorite as the focus is very much so on the children but with the young ages having Mom so close gives them a sense of security so she is often in the images or interacting with her children. Here are some shots I just melted over and notice Lucia’s amazing eyes and Aurelia’s excited little laugh.

As most of our clients and friends know this last month we have been in limbo, working from my home as we have waited for our new studio to be completed. We loved our home at 1612 Park Place and the neighborhood so we have stayed within Fort Worth South and will now be located at 106 E Daggett right off the 200 block of South Main.

This Friday night we invite you to join us and all the great Fort Worth South business owners in the Arts Goggle. We will be showing off the new studio from 5 – 10pm. See and click the flyer below for more information about all the participating business’.

We will be unveiling our new company, Tracy Autem Photography, which will cater to high end brides in the area. Original artwork by both my associates, Sarah Bunyard & Sarah Rizy, and myself will be displayed. Live music and beverages as well as more at our neighboring buildings.

We look forward to seeing you there!

SpringArtsGoggle New Studio Preview Night!

SiebmanWed 3.14.09 0015 Mr. & Mrs. Wade SiebmanLast week Amanda & Wade were married in Weatherford and it was awesome to share their day with them. My favorite part of their day was before they ever saw one another, when they exchanged gifts. Many of my couples do this before the ceremony but never have I gotten so choked up over a gift before. Wade had a beautiful scrapbook made of their history together as a couple and there really was not a dry eye in the room. He also gave her a necklace and she bought him a fun black watch he had been eyeing for months.

Romantics were fun as we stopped traffic in downtown to jump out of the limo and sneak in some photos in front of the courthouse before their reception.
