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

My little guy enjoying summer swimming in the buff! There is no other way when you are this little. 🙂

This summer was amazing.  The Lightly Photo and Tracy Autem team had some amazing weddings, fabulous new babies, cool seniors and great families this summer and we are looking forward to all this new school year and fall will bring.

Fall is a great time to update your family portraits for the holidays and we will be rolling out NEW specials this year starting in September so stay tuned over the upcoming weeks as we announce them.  There will be special incentives for booking and shooting early!  If you (or some one you know) is a 2011 graduate now is the time to start planning for senior photography.  This year we are vamping up our senior packages and will be releasing them soon!

No post is complete without photos so here are some of my favorite summer moments of my little boy, Alexander.  So  many firsts for him and Daddy stayed home with him every day so it was a good time for both of them.

Dillion Family


A few weeks ago I met Owen for his newborn session at the Dillion house.  Dad and sister were out that day so I was so excited when Mom, Jessica, called wanting to do a family session before the holidays.  Owen has grown and gotten even cuter and kept those baby blues like I hoped he would.  Big sis, Laura, is ah-mazing.  She is cute as a button with the freckles, curls and a huge heart for her baby brother.  This session was also really fun for me because we did something I have been wanting to for awhile, we shot right out side the studio!  For many of our family sessions we shoot at their home or at a locations through out the area but I have been dying to do a more urban looking shoot like we do for so many of our engagment session.  Jessica and her family trusted me and I think it turned out awesome.  Here some favorite shots, it was hard to narrow them down!
