MEET Chelsea

This isn’t the first time you’ve seen this adorable family. They’re great friends of mine whom I’ve photographed for some of their biggest milestones! What could be more of a gift?! They were one of the first couples I ever shot engagements for and I even got to photograph their maternity photos last year! This was the first time I met their sweet girl, and it could not have been more of joy. This light and airy family session is one of my favorites for sure.

We took these photos at White Rock Lake in Dallas during one of my visits back there to see family. These three took notes from my What to Wear for Family Photos blog post and my client exclusive Portrait Style Guide! They looked perfect. Rachel wore a light green and white checkered peasant dress that went so well with her gorgeous red hair. JD wore a light blue button down, khakis and cognac brown shoes. And sweet Lucy’s light pink and blue floral dress was the icing on this outfit cake. The pattern added the perfect amount of interest to their look. A light and airy family session like this is such a photographer’s dream.

Spring time is by far my favorite season for family sessions. Or any photo session, really. The weather is perfectly mild, the colors are bright & fresh, and everyone just has a lively energy about them — including me! Plus, there’s just nothing dreamier than flowers cascading overhead as we spend time together. They bring […]
