Sweet Father/Daughter Session {Colleyville Chidrens Photographers}

Aah, such a sweet father and his little girl. You can just feel the love and closeness they have for each other. I have known this Colleyville Dad about 6 years now and Mom and Dad have brought little Miss K to be photographed since she was a wee little baby. As, love, love the red hair! And she has such a spunky little personality. And so well mannered, I know her parents are proud!

I love how cute she looks in my "Jose Eber" hat (that's what I always call it anyway) and the one with them snuggled up is too heartwarming. Love it!

My "fame" moment {DFW Photographers}

This past Saturday was the 1 year anniversary of my husband's passing. I had planned a balloon release and scattering a few of his ashes to commemorate the occasion with our granddaughter. My good friend Amber Augustin (Extreme Home Makeover Family) was approached by the producers of that show about their new upcoming show (don't know if I can name it so I won't). Anyway, they asked her if she knew of anyone who had lost a loved one in the last year so she gave them my name and told them this weekend was the one year. They were in town filming a few different people for possible storylines and they picked me for one. It was an interesting, but difficult/emotional experience. They really know how to get you to let it all out!

Anyway, the ceremony at the park with Gigi was beautiful and very touching. Amber graciously donated her time to photograph it/us and we even managed to ignore the filming of it. I'm sure bystanders in the park were wondering why this family was having this big production! I will keep you updated if I get on the show...not really sure if I want to do it or not. It's going to be an uplifting, inspirational show so I definitely will be watching it however my moment of "fame" works out.

How do you know when a session is over? {Southlake Photography}

Southlake photographers casual family portrait session

This Keller Children's and family photographer never knows what to expect during photo sessions, especially location portrait sessions, and this picture says it all!
At this particular Southlake photography session, we showed little Mr. G the water and he wasn't doing anything else after that point! Dad spun the kids in the air (and thru the fountain)....Mom was not too happy with how wet they got because we were so not finished with taking pictures! The kids had a blast and we all had a good laugh. And mom not to worry...we got some great portraits before the children got soaked! Enjoy this sneak peek of what was a fun and fabulous family photo session in Keller.

A special session with a special family {Grapevine Family Photographers}

I photographed this Grapevine family over the Memorial Day weekend at a beautiful spot in Grapevine, and was so very happy to see them again. This is the family that lost their son to SIDS and host the Holton's Drive for SIDS to raise money for research in his honor. They have an older son but after Holton's passing were blessed with another son. This was his final baby session and he has grown so much since I last photographed him. They are the sweetest family who have always exhibited grace through their trials. I told Mom she inspired me with how she handled her loss and when I lost my husband it really resonated with me. One of her friends commented on the photographs that Mom had lost the sad look in her eyes...I agree and am so happy to see all of them doing so well and feeling joy again.
