This family has far more beauty in it than is even fair. Dad, we all commend you and wish you luck fending off the boys for the younger two girls still at home.
Jennifer and Eddie, you have a sweet family and beautiful girls. They are stunning… inside and out.
When Jennifer and Eddie came into the studio to see their images, I’m not sure who was more nervous… Jennifer or me. Her goal was ONE good family picture. I think we nailed that and then some.
This image… while it may not be the perfect, posed, every hair in place, standard family photo… to me, this is what it is about. Laughter, love, enjoying each other and living life.
Thank you Menting Family for allowing me to be your photographer this year.

I had a mom reach out a few months ago about scheduling family pictures. We talked about whether or not the mini session or the full family session was the right option for what she was looking for. She was VERY quick to tell me that with her group… we would need longer than 30 minutes. She then went on to explain that it would be her, her hubby, and 5 kids. I would be lying if it didn’t stop me in my tracks as I was reading… 5 kids. Well ok… let’s do this!!
yes, you see that correctly. That beautiful girl is surrounded by 4 brothers…
This beautiful family absolutely stole my heart. The kids were incredible and we had SO much fun shooting. Mom, of course, wanted everyone in fall clothes… however, the day of the session was in the 90s. They pile out of their van when we arrive and I see that everyone is in flannel shirts, jeans and boots. I think I started sweating for them. I apologized a few times for the day being so hot, as if I had any control over the weather, but they all just smiled and said that it was ok. They were there to make mom happy and knew better than to complain. Even dad was an absolute trooper and was a great sport the entire time.
We laughed, we joked around, we were completely inappropriate at times… we made some incredible images. Mom (and dad) now have to rearrange their living room walls to make room for the beautiful family portraits they just ordered. Lots of room actually…
Thank you so much Stafford Family for allowing me to spend the afternoon with you and be your photographer. I absolutely can’t wait to see all the great things these kids do over the next few years.
All my love
Earlier this year, I was blessed with an opportunity to partner with a local jeweler, Woolard’s Custom Jewelers, on a few projects. One of those is a beautiful way to thank their customers; for each custom engagement ring that they create, they gift an engagement session to their customer.
Meet Erica and Austin. Austin had a ring custom made by Woolard’s a few months ago. He asked this gorgeous girl to marry him and they are now currently planning their wedding for April of 2017. Their story is super sweet, they met while waiting in line at a local restaurant in Fort Worth, realized each other was eating alone and decided to eat together. They’ve been inseparable ever since.
The love the share for each other is absolutely beautiful. The laughter they get caught up in, is sweet to watch. Austin doesn’t like his smile… but, Erica… she just adores it.
Congratulations to you both. I truly hope that your wedding is all that you dreamed it would be. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to create some beautiful engagement photos for you.
Let me introduce you to Dylan, he is handsome and charming. Dylan is graduating this spring from Martin High School, I am blessed to have him on my 2017 BE Street Team.
Dylan is current section leader in his band, Trumpet. One of the greatest things about my seniors that are musically inclined is that I ask them to play or sing for me during their session. It’s one way that allows them an opportunity to relax a little and helps me get to know them a little better. Well… Dylan had other plans in mind. While he didn’t technically play for me, I can only imagine how great he is if he has made it to be the section leader.
We rocked out Dylan’s senior session and around downtown Fort Worth. His parents were absolutely wonderful and lugged around his clothes and trumpet for the whole session. Thanks mom and dad!!
Dylan, you have great big dreams after school and I truly hope you find a path that sets your soul on fire. Thank you for being so awesome during your session… and yes, I like your sideways look as well! You are remarkable and I appreciate you for trusting me with some crazy ideas for our session. I feel like we went on a small adventure… and it was so very worth it.
