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!

Page 104 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailing

I do have a true love story with brides and wedding dresses.  One of the main reasons I am passionate about shooting weddings is that I love the fairy tale, the excitement and the uniqueness that surrounds each wedding gown and the bride that chooses it.  When the owners of Brides of North Texas Magazine approached me about this dreamy vintage shoot I was on board from the  moment I saw the inspiration board.  It was completely up my alley as I love all things that are soft, natural, vintage and romantic.  It stood out to me as different as well from other gown editorials as we were going to throw into the mix a good looking young man, some designer suiting, a table-scape, detail shots and a boudoir look!  I was completely taken a back as well as I thought, little old me, shoot a gown editorial?  I knew I could do it but I also think that a degree of humbleness and wanting to improve is essential to any artists growth.  This shoot humbled me, wowed me and when I finally held the magazine in my hands I was in awe of what I created.  I actually looked at my staff and said I can’t believe these are my photos!  I am so in love with each image and the Brides of North Texas staff so blessed me with this opportunity.  I can’t wait for the projects I will shoot with them in the future!  Later this Fall I will share some more images from the shoot that are not in the magazine as well as a few behind the scenes moments.Page 106 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 108 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 110 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 112 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 114 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 116 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 118 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 120 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 122 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailingPage 124 Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailing
