nicole | weatherford, tx photographer

I get attached to pretty much every family I photograph... it is really hard not to.  I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister ~ all the things I photograph, so I feel connected to the families.  Well, Nicole and her mom are no exception.  When we first met (via messages) we set up a session date for me to take pictures of their family.  It seemed fate was against us in some form or fashion ~ we had to reschedule the session several times first because my own daughter was in the hospital, and then this beautiful girl had to spend some time at Cooks as well.  We had never met in person... but we prayed for the health of one another's child.  So Nicole has a special little place in my heart; she is the sweetest little girl and I feel blessed to be chosen to capture these memories.  Her mom and dad are pretty wonderful too ~ and our relationship just goes to prove that prayer is a beautiful, wonderful gift that anyone can give... and it doesn't cost a thing :)

I can not believe how fast time flies by... I met these cuties' mom, dad and brother when she was pregnant with them and I did their maternity pictures.  Fast forward a little more than a year and look at them now!  I have had the pleasure of photographing them several times in their first year of life, and look forward to doing more of the same in the years to come.  I love this job ~ I have met so many wonderful families over the years because of it.  The Keen Family is one of my favorites :)

... yes, I can call them "crazy"... after all, these guys are part of my family!  The "Mom" is my aunt and long before any of these guys were around I used to follow her everywhere.  Now Debbie and Keith have their own kids, and even a granddaughter.  It's always fun to photograph extended families - so much personality to them... it's even better when you love the ones in the pictures!

aiden | weatherford, tx photographer

Aiden is the cutest lil'guy... love the chunky cheeks and that sweet smile.
I can not get over how much he has changed since I photographed him as a newborn.  When I first met his mommy I told her he had the sweetest disposition.  That did not change!

I love maternity sessions... especially when the soon-to-be Daddys are willing to be a part of the session.  There is so much love and hope and excitement.  To me, more than any other session, you can feel the love between two people come through in the image.

It is obvious from these images how strongly these two love one another.  And that is the best foundation you can possibly have when bringing another little life into this world.  Clayton & Jesse, congratulations on this new chapter of your life.  I can not wait to meet Baby Hadley.

finley | weatherford, tx photographer

I first met Miss Finley when her gorgeous momma was pregnant with her.  It seems like that was just a few weeks ago... but this cutie just turned ONE!  I love that I get to watch babies grow into big kids, and then into even bigger kids.  Finley is an absolute doll, I can't wait to see the person she is going to grow into.  Happy Birthday sweet girl!
