This beautiful girl is graduating! I was fortunate enough to photograph Darrah’s brother Austyn last year. I was so excited when her mom reached out to me to do Darrah’s senior session. She’s a gorgeous and I know her mama is so proud of all she has accomplished. Darrah is so blessed to be surrounded by family and love. LOTS of family and LOTS of sisters.
Oh… you may have seen this handsome guy in some other posts…. John Wayne came along with Darrah. She may be beautiful – but he sure tried to steal the spotlight. OK OK… he was a pretty good boy for most of the time while we were shooting Darrah’s senior session down in the West 7th area in Fort Worth. We just couldn’t take him off of his leash. He may be super cute – but he sure has a mind of his own. Darrah even brought her sisters for the session as help… but I don’t think any of us could have caught him if decided to run his own path.
Congrats Darrah! I can’t wait to see what the next few years bring your way! Thank you for allowing me to be your senior photographer. I love your images and love your smile.
If you haven’t noticed, floral is making a comeback.
The timing couldn’t be more perfect with spring right around the corner, a denim & floral combo is just the fresh & versatile look we’ve been waiting for.
Floral embroidery on denim is all the rage, & it’s just ONE of the countless ways the two staples can be paired.
It’s fun, fresh, and retro, all in one! What are your go-to floral items?

Prom. You envision in your head the perfect dress, perfect hair and makeup, the perfect date of course, and dancing the night away.
What happens when you wake up the day before and your skin is not being your friend?
I’ve been to dances, had special events and I have learned a few tips and tricks. Giving your skin some extra love the week leading up to prom is always crucial.
Let’s start with the basics:
1. wake up every morning and drink a big glass of water to stay hydrated, and cleanse your face with a gentle daily cleanser.
2. At night, make sure to remove all your makeup and clear your pores and exfoliate your skin.
3. In the shower it’s also important to exfoliate your arms and legs as well, and then after you get out, make sure to lather up with lotion to keep your skin nice and soft.
4. Make sure you moisturize your face with a gentle moisturizer after you wash it and before you put any makeup on.
Follow these basic tips and your skin will thank you when prom rolls around.

Mack… this girl. She’s a beautiful girl, she’s quiet, she’s funny, she’s awkward… but she is an incredibly genuine and kind girl. Mack is a Class of 2017 graduating Senior at Burleson High School.
Mack and her best friend Hannah spent a morning with me shooting in Fort Worth, TX. We laughed and walked and walked some more. Mack was a little nervous getting started but by the end she was twirling around with the best of them… well, not really twirling – more like walking in circles. Kidding… kinda.
I asked what made Mack special… here are a couple of things:
She loves to tell pun jokes… especially when she’s nervous
She’s awkward… and she completely knows this.
She could survive on Twinkies and Gushers. (go ahead world, roll your eyes at how thin she is and that is her diet)
Mack has decided to attend McMurray University and I have absolutely no doubt that she will move mountains in her life. Every day is a celebration in Mack’s life…. cheers to all the things that are upcoming to celebrate.
Sweet Hannah. This beautiful girl and her best friend rocked out their senior sessions in the Magnolia area in Fort Worth. We had so much fun even though the weather wasn’t just stellar. After a visit getting hair and makeup done – we started our morning out walked to the far end. It couldn’t have been more perfect for these girls.
Hannah is a Class of 2017 senior at Burleson High School!
She has a beautiful heart and full of laughter. She has a smile that lights up a room. Her kindness truly beams from her and you just can’t help but adore her.
I know her parents are SO proud of her. She has signed with McMurray University and will be playing soccer. I know she’s excited because every time we bring it up – her smile runs so big you think her cheeks must hurt. I am so excited to see all the great things that come her way.
Hannah you are truly a remarkable young lady and I’m so blessed to have the honor of doing your senior session. Thank you for just being you! You are pretty amazing.
