Annie and Josh – Engagement Session in Fort WorthNature & Fairmount District

I am CRAZY excited for this wedding.  In just 4 short weeks these two are saying I do and kicking off a new life together at MOPAC here in Fort Worth.  If you are a bride of mine this sweet lady will look familiar – she is my amazing associate photographer Annie Norvell!  I love her sweetness, silliness and passion for photography, Christ and life.  I have always thought she was pretty amazing from the first time I photographed her – for her High School Senior Portraits!  But, when she met Josh this last year I watched her grow deeper in love with Jesus, focus her life and fall head over heels for a Man that fulfilled her.  It has truly been the best to see her mature along side him AND I have really loved getting to know Josh.  From Facebook messages and texts to plan a surprise proposal (see it HERE) and being at his side as he nervously awaited the moment he would ask Annie to marry him – Joshua has impressed me with his honesty, fun spirt and desire to serve God and the woman he believes was set apart for him.

 

This wedding will be a little extra special for me – Annie is like my baby sister – SO, Josh – welcome to the family!  I can’t wait for you to marry one of my favorite people in the world because I know she is for sure your favorite.

p.s. – HUGE shout of thanks to Amanda for assisting me on this shoot, helping with poses, making them laugh and generally being a great person.  Love you girl!

 

On the Lightly Photo blog today – Baby Addy, 6 Months & Sitting Pretty

Today on my portrait studio’s site you can see precious Addy’s 6 month portraits.  I loved having the chance to photograph this sweet girl again and to hang out with her parents.  Her Mommy and Daddy were one of my couples a few years ago and I still remember their perfect wedding day.  Their ministers preached like it was a battle (2 ministers = a very long ceremony) and the sunlight outside the chapel as they exited and embraced.  It was a good day and they have continued to have many good days now that they have moved into the next phase of their lives.  To see more about Megan & Austin and little Addy check out the Lightly Photography, Fort Worth Baby Photographer Blog!

Addison is a super model in training and she just rocked it and so much fun in front of my camera.  We played, climbed on EVERYTHING and captured her at this wonderful age.  I can’t wait to meet her big brother this Fall for his birthday portraits and some family shots for their holiday card.  See you guys in a few months!

Tracy’s Baby Belly

TracyJW31weeks_0001 I am just a handful of weeks away now from my first baby being born and last week my associate Sarah Bunyard headed out to play with me.  I love being behind the camera but being in front of it is always a great experience as it helps me to understand my clients insecurities, quirks and sometimes strange conversations with their loved ones.  Very few people are naturally comfortable with a lens pointed their direction but my husband, J.W., and I had a great time laughing, being silly and of course intimate and close to one another. We brought props like balloons, a few outfits and checked out a location I have been dying to shoot in….a laundry mat!  It was awesome and I am excited to share some of my belly shots with my amazing clients.  I will be on maternity leave from shooting from Nov 14 until the new year but of course will still be available for meetings, emails and phone calls.  Little Alexander Wayne Autem is due the beggining of December and the bith is being captured by a good friend of mine so Sarah Rizy will make sure and post some newborn photos as soon as he arrives.  Enjoy!
