I had the pleasure of photographing this young and in love couple. They were so eager to have their photos captured at the majestic location in McKinney. The December evening was a bit chilly, however the sun’s rays provide a warm spring like feel to the photos!
Photographing this young couple was bittersweet. Bailey babysat my children when she was in high school. She has since graduated from college, and is now a teacher. She and Zach have been married a couple of months. They really are the cutest together. I have to add, they have the dip and kiss down!
We used Adriatica Village in McKinney Location. The secluded island chapel provided the perfect romantic setting. The European architecture and stone buildings created an elegant glow. The landmark bell tower was perfect for a sunset silhouette.
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!
