Amy and John-Paul – Engagement & Family Photos

Tracy Autem Photography 2014 https://tracyautem.com

Am7 & John-Paul are getting hitched in just a few weeks and we can’t wait to celebrate with them!  It will be a family affair as Issac, Amy’s son, is very involved in the process.  He is even getting his own wedding cake!  So super cool!  Issac is a neat kid and I know he is happy about his Mom marring John-Paul.  I love this couple!  They are fun, spunky and a load of laughs.  We spent more time chatting and just enjoying each other than we did taking pictures!  Amy has assembled an all star cast for her wedding next month so I will be surrounded by vendor faves and clients that already feel like dear friends.  Can’t wait!

Taylor & Keaton – Engagement Photos in Fort Worth at Urban Walls & Trinity Park

Engagement-Session-Urban-Walls-Trinity-Park-Fort-Worth-Family-Portraits-Tracy-Autem-Photography-Taylor-Keaton

Oh, HOTNESS is about the only way to describe this couple.  I just fell in love with them from the moment they started interacting during this session.  Taylor & Keaton selected some fun urban walls and a more city cool style for their locations and I LOVE it!  It was great to get to check out some of my favorite local spots just down the street from my studio.  After some steamy romantics and some general silliness (these girl cracks me up!) we met up with Keaton’s kiddos at Trinity Park for a mini family shoot.  When a couple is getting married with kids it is so important to include them in all the festivities, even engagement photos.  Can’t wait for the wedding next year at The Piazza!  It is going to rock!

Brighton Chad Engagment Field rustic child country barn Cedar Hill State Park Tracy Autem Photography by Tracy Autem

Brighton and Chad are getting married in September at The Four Seasons and last weekend I joined up with them and their little boy, Blaise, for a fusion of engagement and family photos.  I instantly loved these guys as we actually met for the first time at their session.  Their little guy is just 2 weeks younger than my Gideon that I totally got where they are in life and all the challenges and joy they are facing as a family.  Blaise was a smiley little man and looked OH so cute in his fedora hat.  Chad and Brighton are great parents and I can see how much they love each other, they were so sweet to one another.  I know there wedding, designed and planed by Tami Winn Events, is going to be off the chain amazing, I can’t wait!

To see more of their photos check our their slide show!

Summer & Paul are expecting! Following our Bride and Groom’s on their Journey

My dear clients (and friends!) are having a BABY in just a few weeks.  Summer and Paul were married in February and decided it was time to start a family and by their one year anniversary they will be holding their sweet Preston.  Photographing my clients as they move on to the new stages of life are the COOLEST part of what I do.  I can’t wait to meet him and I am truly privileged that they have choose me to be with them on all these life changing events.  I feel like one of the family.  They joined me for our mini portraits last Saturday so we could capture her pregnancy.  Congrats guys!

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.

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.

Eden & Finnley {6 Months Portraits} Botanic Gardens of Fort Worth

Eden & Finnley are growing SO fast!  I can’t believe it was just 6 months ago that I photographed their newborn session at Trish & Scott’s house.  It was amazing to see how they have developed and how different they are from one another as well.  I am sure by their one year birthday they will have me running after them!  This cuties are to die for and they did so good for me despite the heat at the Botanic Gardens a few weekends ago.  Here are some favorites from their second session of their Baby’s First Year Package.  To view more photos check out the Lightly Photo Portrait blog where you can always find my non wedding portraits as well as work from my team.

The Autem Family is Growing!

This October we will be welcoming a new little one to the Autem Family!  Alexander will be a big brother and a fabulous one at that.  He already practices with his Bob the Builder “baby” doll and loves to feed anything that moves.  We are so very excited about it and will of course be sharing photos of my growing belly and the little Neeboo (pronounced Knee – boo).  Alex was Weeboo so this baby has taken on the name Neeboo until we find out what they are later in May.  What do you think I will have???

Alex likes to hold and kiss the photo of his baby, when I brought it home and told him what it was he immediately kissed it.

LOVE this photo.  As happy as I know he will be to be a BIG brother other times he will feel like this.   🙂  I sympathize, JW and I are both the oldest siblings in our families.

Welcome Baby Miles! – Fort Worth Newborn Photographs

Fort Worth Newborn Children Baby photography urban cute Tracy Autem

smiles on newborns are so rare and I totally got him grinning!

I am so very excited to share these photos.  Miles is just a sweet little bundle of perfection and he happens to be a member of our studio family.  He is Sarah Rizy’s nephew!  Miles along with his parents and big sister, Audrey, hung out with me at the studio for some photos together.  Audrey tried to steal the show because she is A-Dorable but I think Miles still stole my heart.  Here are some favorites and I can’t wait to see these little ones grow!

Family & Kids Portraits in Atlanta!

Little girl vintage outside walking atlanta tracy autem photography

Love this little girl, I could just pinch her.

Most of my clients and readers know I was out of town last week. Nope, not a end of summer vacation.  It was a business trip.  I am super lucky that for me a business trip is the most fun thing in the world because I get to do what I love.  No, I wasn’t shooting a wedding in some super cool place.  I was taking time out to exercise my brain, learn from some fantastic photographers and shoot some kids and families!  I am a firm believer that education can never end and that in order to continue loving what I do and ensuring that you love it too I have to continuously learn new things.

Weddings are most definitely the cornerstone of Tracy Autem &  Lightly Photography but we also love to do portraits.  This year I fell in love with photographing families because my husband and I had our first baby.  It has thrown an entire new dynamic into my life and into the way that I see children and parents.  This workshop in Atlanta allowed me to see portraits in some new lights with some great photographers including: Liana Lehman, Amber Horlitz, Heather Essian, Garrett Nudd & Alice Park.  Each were so different, some very far from what I do and others really close to how I approach my clients.  We had some classroom time and then the best part, shooting!  We had “models” that were real life families from all over the city.  They came to one house with 30 photographers and these kids did great.  I don’t do well with one camera pointed at me so I was super impressed with them and their parents.  Here are some favorite photos from the model sessions.

These little girls were not my "models" but they stole my heart and were not really wanting to coperate with their photographer. I captured this on the fly when the older sister was not that into hugging. I really like it though.
