2012 Fall Specials 741x1024 Fall Mini Portrait Sessions by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography

I am SO excited about portraits this FALL!!!!  Last year I was on maternity leave with Gideon so I completely missed this busy portrait season.  Since I had an entire extra year to think about how much I love doing them and where I wanted to photograph my mini sessions I have a great line up.  It is making me think about my own families yearly photo and what on earth I will select for our holiday card.  We have a whole new line of cards this year I am in love with so I am not sure how I will choose.  In case your new, Lightly Photography is my portrait line and of course fabulous team of associate wedding photographers.

This year we will be offering Fall Mini Sessions on select Saturdays and weekdays.  Available weekend dates are October 6th & 27th or November 17th.  October sessions will be photographed in Fort Worth near our studio and you may choose from rustic urban, bright urban or field/nature.  November 17th will be at Penn Farms at Cedar Hill State Park.  The farm has vintage barns, open fields, dirt roads and fence lines as well as beautiful trees.  Please note there is an additional cost for admission to the Farms, individuals over 12 are $7 each.  (The Farms rock and I may very well be doing my own family here this year.)

For more information or to check availability for dates and times call us at 817.810.9282 or email me at tracy@tracyautem.com

City Club Wedding University Christian TCU Horned Frogs purple pink tami winn by tracy autem photography 0010 Natalie & Ryan {Married First Look & Portraits} University Christian and City Club Fort Worth

Natalie and Ryan’s wedding was quite a beautiful affair.  The details, location and food were magnificent but more on that tomorrow.  Today it is all about their first look and portraits.  Natalie is an event planner out of Houston so she completely understood the importance of photos and knew that to get the most opportunity for images a first look is the way to go.  A few hours before the ceremony we set up Natalie in the courtyard of University christian in her to die for Vera Wang dress (does it look familiar?  Think Kate Hudson in Bride Wars!) and Ryan walked out to her with the biggest grin on his face.  I adored that he was so cautious as he walked up to her, careful not to step on the gown and leaning in for a kiss.  It was sweet that Natalie looked him over and smoothed his hair.  So truthful and a window into their loving marriage that was about to be.  After we took some romantic images of them both before family photos and a very fun night of celebration.  Check back tomorrow for all the details and tear jerking moments!

city club fort worth tcu robert carr chapel purple horned frogs super frog tracy autem lush cotoure flowers 0021 Jadrien & McCall {Married Part 1   Romantics, Portrais & Details} Robert Carr Chapel & City Club FW

Jadrien & McCall had a very TCU wedding from purple bridesmaids gowns, floral, cuff-links, popcorn and an appearance by super frog.  They are so incredibly sweet on one another and my heart soared while I photographed the two of them alone.  They were extra nice to me and gave me a bit of extra time at a location of my choosing so we hit some urban walls including the purple one above.  Jadrien wore a gorgeous gown from Bliss Bridal while her bridesmaids dresses were from Ocones.  One of my favorite people, Dietra of Lush Couture Floral provided all the fabulous arrangements.  Shannon with Something You made sure Jadrien and her Mom had flawless faces while my great friend Kelly Arroyo provided hair services.  The cakes were made by Lesley’s Cakes and Glenn Roush kept the dance floor full and going all night long.  It was truly a perfect day for my “Disney Princess” Bride (more on that in the moments post!) at Robert Carr Chapel & City Club of Fort Worth all pulled together by Chrissie Stuntz Events.

Old Red Courthouse Dallas Wedding Brandi TJ vintage pink black white historic photographer tracy autem 0017 Brandi & TJ {Married Part 1   Portraits & Details} Old Red Courthouse in Dallas

I am so excited to share this wedding!  I have known the Groom, TJ, for many a years and I was super thrilled to share in his wedding day. Their day was a complete tear jerk-er but I’ll tell more about that in Part 2 of their wedding blog.  This one is all about the pretty.  Brandi had always had her eyes on Old Red Courthouse in Dallas for her wedding and she could not have picked a more perfect venue for her vintage chic wedding.  Wendy with Birds of a Feather Events helped pull it all together with cute silhouettes of the bride and groom on cookies and wall art.  Wendy also made the most beautiful hand sewn flowers for the place settings and brought together a fabulous array of vintage books and items to complete the decor.  Brandi wore a gorgeous gown from Pence & Panache in Burleson while her bridesmaids wore Priscilla of Boston.  The simply delicious brides cake and the zombie grooms cake were made by Sugar Bee SweetsKabloom provided the magnificent floral and Randy Ro Entertainment kept us dancing all night long.  I can’t wait to share the little things that made me have watery eyes ALL day soon.

Hendrix Family Portraits Baby Girl Newborn grandparents in home pink candid lifestyle portraits by Tracy Autem 0015 Jennifer, Max & Avery {Family Portraits}

I love this family and this darling little girl.  Earlier this month I took photos of Avery Elizabeth solo but we had to get Dad and the grandparents in for some family photo action so we did another session last week.  It was great seeing Max, who I hadn’t seen since the wedding, and catching up with Jennifer’s parents.  They are just amazing people and I really enjoy their company.  Avery was a doll and showed off her new tricks.  In just 3 weeks it is amazing the changes a baby makes, now she was doing little baby push ups and rolling over like you wouldn’t believe.  Can’t wait to see her sitting and crawling around!  To view more photos and a slide show of their session head over to my sister studio and portrait brand, Lightly Photography.
