{from the past to to the present} | Colleyville / Dallas / Fort Worth Child Photographer

I love a golden field just before sunset, especially when there’s a dear, sweet, smart beauty to take it by storm! This cutie did a spectacular job hunting for flowers, bugs, and doing lots of spins for me in her mom’s First Communion dress. This dress was made by a family friend in the 70s and we all smiled HUGE when C put it on. What fun! ***I’m dying to see pics of her mom in it — hint, hint! :) ***

The bell sleeves, eyelets, and big yellow bow are such incredible touches!

A natural beauty, inside and out.

I am incredibly honored to be asked to capture this special time in C’s life, as she prepares for her First Communion. We started our day out at her family church in Colleyville, where we took many traditional portraits and details of her dress (see below), a beautifully beaded flower girl dress from her parent’s wedding. Then we headed to Fort Worth, to the church where this little lady’s mom and dad got married. I absolutely love it when families tie in parts of their past with the present and future. It truly makes sessions more meaningful as familiar places, and items from the past are are revisited and celebrated.

Truly a magical afternoon.

Hope you have a lovely day!
