COVERS BERRY Web Merry Christmas 2013!!

 

Merry Christmas from my little family and the team at Lightly Photography!  Here is our very own Fall Portraits taken by my awesome associate team, Sarah Rizy & Amanda McCollum.  I love all these as they really show off my families silliness.  In case you didn’t know I am totally outnumbered, A husband, 2 sons, a boy dog and a  male cat means a whole lot of boy and little girly me.  We have lots of fun and I don’t think I would have it any way. Hope your Christmas is filled with happiness and craziness like ours surely will be.  Catch you in the New Year!

-Tracy Autem

Tracy Autem Photography & Lightly Photography from Turquoise Video Productions on Vimeo.

We are SOOOOOO excited to finally share this amazing film by Adrienne and Aytek of Turquoise Video Productions. They are a fan favorite of ours and we love working with them every chance we get. Working with them on this short film about myself, my wonderful team and most importantly my family was awesome. They totally got me, the studio and my love for relationship and photography. I’ll be honest, when I watched it the first time I teared up because it was so perfect. Seeing my photographers laughing, my sweet dog and most of all my loves, my boys, JW, Alex and Gideon. Thank you so much Turquoise team for making this happen for me.

So if you want to know more about me and my studio watch on.

Side note: This video showed me how truly blessed I am, I give all praise to God. I am so thankful.

October 14, 2011 Welcome Gideon Matthew!

GideonMatthewBlog  0004 Welcome Gideon Matthew!We are so excited to announce the newest addition to the Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography Family. Gideon Matthew was born October 13 at 8:02 am . He weighed 9lbs and 3 oz and is 20.5 inches. I was so blessed to be there when Tracy and her husband got to hold their precious baby boy for the very first time and I wanted to share some of those images. Of course I couldn’t help but cry as I experienced their joy with them. We all truly are a family.

Tracy Autem Photographer NOLA 2010 Holga strip prints 0004 Fine Art Photography {Holga Film Strips} in New Orleans

Thanks to all our friends, vendors and Fort Worth people that came out and braved the rain on Saturday night to the Arts Goggle.  It was a treat to show off the progress on our new studio that we hope to be operating out of some time in November.  The Arts Goggle also gives myself and my staff a chance to share our fine art photography.  One thing that sets our company apart is that all members of my team have fine art photography degrees.  This means we all learned how to shoot on good old film cameras, played in the dark room, miss the smell of the chemicals deeply and love having a chance to truly play with a camera.  We find that putting forth a theme for our Arts Goggle shows works best and this year we displayed photos each of us captured in New Orleans last year using a film camera called a Holga.  This little “toy camera” as it is referred to by many has very little controls, takes 120 sized film, is plastic and comes in some super cute colors.  I first fell in love with the simplicity of this camera in college as it truly becomes all about composition and the unexpected.  You can shoot the camera as individual frames, you can easily expose each frame multiple times or you can shoot the negative as one long overlapping strip.  The later is my favorite and when I’m shooting it forces me to think about the last frame and how it could potentially interact with the next.  I wanted to share the work I displayed over the weekend, enjoy!

Tracy Preggers Gideon 22 Weeks Web 0001 Autem Baby #2 Update

I’m at 25 weeks pregnant and thought you might be in need of an update!  Baby #2 is a BOY!  I am going to be surrounded by boys and my little Alex will have a baby brother to play with, wrestle and generally fight with but love with all his might.  We are pretty sure on the name but I am waiting to reveal that here just a bit longer.  We are working hard on his Owl themed room and I only have 3 more weddings to shoot before I officially become to BIG to run around for 8 hours taking pictures.  I will be accepting limited sessions during the morning hours due to the heat through the middle of September and will be returning the middle of November.  This fall Sarah Halferty, will be shooting all of our holiday portraits and I am SO very excited about it because she is good.  I mean, she shoots my family every year so you know you are in the best of hands.   A few impromptu pregnancy photos by Sarah Rizy and of course the telling sonogram photo, definitely a boy!
