January 1, 2012 Hello 2012!

We are so excited for this upcoming year at Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography.  2011 was an over the top year.  I bought our new studio building, we renovated it and we moved in.  I shot my 100th wedding.  I had a second son, Gideon, in October.  Sarah Halferty graduated with her BFA in photography.  Amanda McCollum, TCU photography graduate, joined our team.  Sarah Rizy (my indispensable right hand girl) became an avid runner and is participating in 5K’s to raise money for cancer research.  We worked with all of our favorite vendors and had the most beautiful brides.  Can’t wait for whatever 2012 brings……

Here is a sneak peek of the wedding we photographed last night, on New Years Eve.  This is how we brought in the new year and it was an amazing time.

4c3de5221ba711e1a87612313804ec91 7 We have moved to our new location!

Love our Instagram Ap – it makes cell phone pictures pretty when you are on the go!

We have been working hard for almost 7 months doing some major renovation to our new studio location and today we made the BIG move!  We are excited to have found the most perfect place for our business.  Our new 1920′s studio home at 1215 6th Avenue in the Fort Worth Southside neighborhood is beyond what I even hoped.  The transformation has been miraculous and after the holidays I will share some before, during and after photos of all the work!

At our new location we now have 2 consultation areas, a dressing room/shooting room (perfect for indoor baby, toddler and boudoir photos), separate office, play room (for my children) and a kitchen!  Not to mention a backyard that when we get around to all the plans I have brewing in my head will be fabulous for children’s portraits!  Oh, and did I mention our HUGE front porch.  It is just dying for some cute siblings to hug on each other while sitting on the steps.  Today we broke in our new space with a 2 month baby session (had to get right to work!)

It was sad to say good bye to our Daggett location as it was so perfect when we moved in but we definitely outgrew it.  I can’t wait to see how it turns into the perfect place for it’s new tenant, Stir Crazy Baked Goods!720f9d901b7a11e19e4a12313813ffc0 7 We have moved to our new location!ceb712581b9311e1a87612313804ec91 7 We have moved to our new location!
