I am fortunate to be part of a {fun little group of gals} who are shooting creatively, for us, once a week for the next year.  We have a word a week and it’s been awesome to brainstorm, to shoot, to process & to see what each person reveals!  I’m having a blast, using lenses I don’t normally shoot with, and using light and settings in ways not typical for my style.  It’s fun to learn and grow and it’s only WEEK TWO!  :)

So this week’s word was :: addiction.  I have this thing about glasses.  Annnnd it must be an addiction if I feel like I need a new pair (or three).  ;)

IMG_4999webI have to admit that before the shoot I had a flashlight out. looking under the couches for a couple pairs that I hadn’t seen in a while…and SCORE…found a pair!   :)

Hope you have a lovely week!

gorgeous momma-to-be + her benry ;) | dallas / fort worth maternity photographer

I met up with this stylin’ gal yesterday (and our FUN friend, Savanah, who just so happens to be my awesome hair stylist!) for a KILLER maternity session!  They both work at the popular Scott LeMaster Salon in Irving which has EVERYTHING a gal could ever want/need in the “get beautiful” department.  Seriously love getting pampered there.

“Benry” is the nickname her pals have given the little guy that is forever poking her ribs, kicking, and growing in her cute belly.  We definitely had some laughs about his nickname.  :)

Anyway, we had a blast being creative in several outdoor spaces and really soaked the moment up, capturing C’s little bump and gorgeous “glow.”    I was totally blown away by her beauty and the way she could make pregnancy look so chic!

I especially loved all her carefully thought out outfits, full of color, texture, accessories, and quite the selection of boots!

Thank you SO very much, C and S, for being a part of such an inspiring, creative afternoon…it just flew by and I literally cannot stop editing these because they are SO MUCH FUN! :) Seriously, I never post this many!!!

And lastly, here’s a shot with an incredible new lens I recently purchased. I’ve been loving the dreamy effect this lens produces and have been so excited about this upcoming session so I could really practice using it! It involves a whole new set of skills to learn and master, so I’ve been experimenting a ton! I love the emotion it captures, especially in maternity photography, and to me, there’s nothing more perfect than a momma-to-be enjoying her belly with the golden sun at her back and the wind in her hair!
