Lindsey & Colin – Maternity Session at White Rock Lake

Tracy Autem 2015

Lindsey & Collin were married a few years ago in Highland Park with a reception at Room on Main in Dallas and now we are getting ready to celebrate their next big adventure!  Baby boy is set to arrive in just a few short weeks and I can’t wait to hold him and see his little face.  Mom & Dad are waiting to meet their little man to firm up his name so I will be anxiously awaiting news on Facebook of his birth.  We met up in Dallas last week in the morning for some beautiful light at White Rock Lake to capture some photos of this special time in this growing families lives.  Congrats you two!

This beautiful lady is a dear friend of the Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography team.  Adrianne & Aytek are parents to be and the owners of Turquoise Video – one of our very favorite wedding video teams!  These two have been waiting for the arrival of their sweet baby boy and in just a few short weeks he will be here!  I love these two and can’t wait to see them melt as they hold their little man for the first time.  For their session we met up at The Modern – where they had their own wedding reception many years ago.  At the time they didn’t take any photos outside by the reflecting pool so we took advantage of some amazing warm sunset light and the beautiful architecture of the museum.  Puppy dog Izzy joined us for some family photos.  She is ready for her baby bro!  Congrats you two!  We are truly blessed to be going on this journey with you and I am so excited to meet baby K!

The theme of this sessions is TWO!  Jacks is turning 2 very shortly and Mommy Morgan is about to have baby #2.  In fact this little guy or gal will be here in time to see their big brother’s birthday.  Jacks is pretty excited to be getting the ultimate birthday present – a promotion to big brother even if he isn’t 100% sure what that means.  I know this little guy will be a great big bro and I know Mom & Dad are ready to know – pink or blue!  I have so much admiration for anyone that can hold out and keep the gender a surprise until they deliver.  It has to make the last few weeks even more full of excitement and anticipation then I could ever understand.  I am bursting to know too though, because I get to photograph this little bundle when they arrive.   Mom, as always, is looking gorgeous!  I have loved this lady since I first met her for her New Years Eve wedding and ever since ringing in that new year with them I have been so blessed to capture all their other news!  Love you guys and see you soon! -Tracy van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-4 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-1 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-5 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-6 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-7 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-8 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-9 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-10 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-11 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-12 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-13 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-14 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-15 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-16 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-17 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-18 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-19 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-20

Tessa & Lance-Expecting Vivian Rose

Fort Worth Portraits YWCA Field Expecting Maternity Lightly Photography by Sarah Rizy-0005

It was so great last week to see Tessa and Lance one of my bride and grooms from 2011. They will be celebrating their 4 year anniversary in June but before they do they will welcome Vivian Rose in May.  I love the family name they chose. She will be names after Lance’s grandmother and Tessa’s great grandmother. Here are some of my favorites from their maternity session at the YWCA and a field.

Aimee & Adam Expecting! Maternity photos at Van Zandt Cottage

MaternitySessionVanZandtCottageFortWorthPhotographerTracyAutemLightlyPhotographyAimeeandAdam-0010Aimee and Adam are as sweet and cute as they were the day of their wedding!  I haven’t had a chance to hang out with them since their wedding at OW Ranch a few years ago so one morning when Aimee called me to share the good news that they were expecting I was bouncing in my chair!  I must say that may be one of the best calls to get from a bride.  Well, now these two are just weeks away from welcoming their little girl into the world and I can’t wait to hold her, cuddle her and adorn her with all my bows and bonnets!  I pray these two have a great last few weeks and that this little one arrives perfect in every way!  See you both soon.

Meg & Corey – Fort Worth Maternity Photos at Stockyards Rustic Nature

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.com

 

Meg and Corey are expecting and I can’t wait for this little one to arrive!  Will it be a boy or girl???? We don’t know as this sweet couple is keeping it a surprise!  I know that makes the anticipation that much greater for these parents to be but when the baby arrives oh how much more excitement comes with it!  These two were married a few years ago and we just love that we are following along on this new journey.  It was a little BRRRRRR cold for their photo shoot last week but Meg looks amazing despite it.  I wish you two the best last weeks of your pregnancy and can’t wait to see you soon with your son or daughter.

Mallory & Ryan Expecting Baby Oliver! – Maternity Session at Van Zandt Cottage

2013 Lightly PhotographyOh boy oh boy oh boy, I can not wait for this baby to arrive!  Little Oliver is going to be one little doted on man with some amazing parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents all waiting on his arrival. This couple is like family to me after photographing their wedding and her sisters.  I know everyone is excited about the families first baby!  Malory and Ryan were as cute as ever at their maternity session last Saturday.  It was chilly but that might have actually helped as Mallory is in those all important (and HOT) last few weeks of her pregnancy.  I hope these two have a great Christmas and before they know it he will be here!

Mary & Bobby – Maternity Portraits at College Ave Vintage Buildings

2013 Lightly Photography Mary and Bobby were married a few years ago and were photographed by Sarah Halferty.  We were super excited to hear they are expecting a baby boy!  He is going to be so adorable and I can’t wait to meet him.  Now they are narrowed down to 2 names for this little guy but they are waiting until he arrives to decide.  I love that idea as when they look at him I know they will know the perfect fit for him.  We got together with them last week right after that awful ice storm, it was still quite chilly out and there was ice on the ground still (as you can see above).  Thanks guys for braving the cold with me and good luck on these all important last weeks!

Sarah & Justin – Maternity Portraits in Trinity Park

  2013 Lightly Photography

Sarah and Justin are expecting a baby boy in just a few weeks.  They are keeping his name top secret until he makes his debut which I think is super fun.  I am sure their family and friends are dying to find out!  It was great to learn a little bit about these new Texans as they have only lived here a little while after moving from St Louis.  They seem to have fully embraced our great state though as they came prepared with boots for themselves and their little boy to be.  Can’t wait to see them again!
