DFW Family Photographer

DFW Family Photographer | Back to school Petite Sessions

Its that time of year again when parents feel excitement to finally get into a regular routine and start school. Sibling arguments may end, and the never ending “I am bored” statement will be hushed with the busyness of school days. Other parents may feel an ache in their heart as they realize it is time to let their children take another step of independence. Either way, it is a stepping stone in childhood and parenthood!

It is time to set our children free, but also help them have stable roots to face decisions when parents are not present. It is a large task to give our children wings and also roots to stay grounded.

I pulled some seeds of knowledge from Roots and Wings: How to Give Your Kids The Best Gift Ever by Cally Worden. from A Fine Parent

Parents are like parachutes. They soften the fall, but the trick is knowing when to pull the chord!

“We have to remember that we are our children’s parachutes – there to let them break the fall and land softly. But in order to help our kids flourish we need also to be willing to allow a little free form skydiving before deploying the chute.”

Roots hold up a tree and provide nutrients for it to remain stable and grow strong. We give our children roots by helping them develop a healthy emotional and spiritual well being. This foundation can help them face different situations.

We want our children to fly and soar! We have to help them take the first leap. Encourage them. Acknowledge their feelings. Create a safe environment for them to feel comfortable sharing their feelings.

“Raising strong kids is partly about providing a strong base to which they can feel attached and safely grounded. When this is in place, our children will internalize it and use it as a springboard for healthy growth. In allowing our children this freedom to explore in the context of caring boundaries we provide the ideal platform for them to fly.”

As school approaches, I wish you all the courage to help your babies take another step in growing up!

Looking Back at 2018

Dallas Tx Portrait Photography 2018 Review

Reflecting on 2018 leaves me feeling quite proud, thankful, and fulfilled! This photography business has blossomed exponentially, and that is due to all of the wonderful clients and mentors I have met along the way! Nothing would have been possible without these people!

I took the year as an opportunity to explore a variety of photography genres from outdoor natural light to studio settings. From newborn, to maternity, from families to extended families, I experienced all forms of family photography sessions. I also ventured into high school senior portraits as well as engagement photography and assisting at weddings. This time of exploration introduced me to many wonderful people including photographers, models, and the sweetest clients!

The year has also brought accomplishments and philanthropic opportunities. I am so very thankful for making front cover of Iconic Child magazine. It was such an honor!

In addition, I have donated my time and photography to the Mercy Run organization that provides resources for families who have lost a child/ sibling. I enjoyed photographing their annual fundraiser Fun Run/ 5k/ 10K event. Giving my time to this cause is near and dear to me as I know the grief encountered with losing a sibling. I also had the pleasure of offering complimentary family photo sessions to six first responder families during the DFW 9/11 First Responder Event. It is my pleasure to invest my time in non profit organizations that connect with me deeply.

The goal for 2019 is to hone in on my specialities and further develop my art to serve my clients with the very best quality and costumer service. I am so appreciative of the fact that my clients have trusted me completely with capturing their family bonds. Preserving these moments is the most precious gift I can provide.

Cheers to 2019! May we all have a prosperous year!

Enjoy highlights from 2018!
