Look Ma, No Tooth!

Months ago William fell on his face pretty hard. His front tooth turned grey but the dentist looked at it and said it was fine. Well, last week it started hurting. To the point where he was waking up crying. We went back to the dentist and of course, it was abscessed. So this morning we had it pulled. I was worried it would be traumatizing for him, but honestly I think it was harder for me to watch than for him to experience. It didn't seem to bother him at all and now he's really proud of his tooth-in-a-box and hole in his mouth.

Just before.

And after.

Just as a side note, if any of you are looking for a pediatric dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Joseph Harris. We were referred to him by our dentist and I really like him. He reminds me of the dentist I had growing up.

Meet Bela. What a beautiful little baby she is! I love photographing newborns and I'm so glad I'll be getting the chance to capture her first year in photos. She had some extended family in town so we were lucky to get some photos of her with them.

with Grandpa...

with her cousins!

Some of you may remember Dilan. He's Bela's big brother. It has been quite awhile since I've seen him and I can't believe how much he's grown! He is running all over the place and talking up a storm. We did manage to snap a few photos of him....doesn't he look like his dad?

Raechel's going to be a mamma pretty soon, and what a beautiful mamma! We shot her maternity session this afternoon and it was so much fun. She is such a beautiful lady with such a big heart. I can't wait to meet little Abby!

A Bride's Tale

Back in October I photographer Taylor and Rachel's beautiful wedding. Veronica Bessey did hair for Rachel and a couple of her bridesmaids. (She is an award-winning stylist for those of you in the DFW area looking for a great hairdresser for your own wedding!) Anyway, she has put together "A Bride's Tale" on her website with photos from Taylor and Rachel's wedding. Check it out here!

Triumph Basketball has commissioned me to get some shots to update their website. It seems like such a long time since I've shot basketball!! Especially since I used to do it so much... Anyway, I have been working on my latest event with them and thought I'd share a few.

New Logo

Some of you may have noticed I've had a new logo on my photos the past few weeks;

Even though it is so very simple, it actually is the result of weeks of work and correspondence with my awesome graphic designer (and client!), Shari Van Vranken of Em-press Design. I have to brag on her a bit here because this is the first time I've ever hired anyone to design anything for me and she made the experience a great one. She listened to all my vague ramblings about what I wanted and the sort of "feeling" I wanted to evoke, and gave me pages and pages of examples. This E was actually in one of the first designs she gave me, and I just kept coming back to it. After some tweaking, I think we got it perfect. What do you think?

Ethan is 1!!

It seems like I just met this little guy when we did his 3 month shoot, but it has almost been a year already. I can't believe how much he has grown in such a short amount of time and how much he has changed. Here are some of my favorites from his last "1st Year" session with me this past Saturday. What a cute kiddo!

He started racing Big Brother...

...but then he quickly got distracted.


Happy birthday again Ethan. I've had a great time photographing you over the past few months!!
