Clint, Kim and Collins – Family Portraits

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

We are so happy to share these photos of this beautiful family!  Sweet Collins is 4 years old and has already conquered cancer once, but she is facing that battle once more.  Collins has the sweetest spirit and is just so precious.  We were able to get in some family portraits before she gets too far in her treatments and she was such a trooper.  She didn’t feel very good, but you’d never know it!  She showed us her very cool fringed boots and we talked about her favorite Disney Princess, Belle.  Collins has a sweet smile, but when she laughs it is incredibly infectious!  We love getting photograph Collins and her parents, Clint and Kim.  We ask for prayers for their family as they go through this tough journey with Collins.  We can’t wait to photograph them again as soon as she is feeling much better!

Hannah is 5 months old and just as sweet as ever!!  We were so excited to photograph this little munchkin again!  She is so smiley and giving so many expressions these days.  Hannah loves it when her mommy and daddy read to her, when Grandma sings “I’m a Little Tea Pot”, and swinging her new swing!  She also enjoys being outside at the park.  We love having the opportunity to photograph this sweet family just doing what they do in their everyday lives.  Can’t wait til the next time!

Jordan, Zach & Baby Hannah – Family PortraitsIn Home Lifestyle Family Portraits - Fort Worth, TX

Lifestyle portraits Amanda McCollum Annie Norvell Lightly Photography-004

We, as photographers, absolutely love what we do. Whether it’s capturing the moments of your wedding day or making time stand still with a family portrait, photography brings us so much joy.  Then there are the times where we have the opportunity to use our talents to help bless the lives of others.  This may be my favorite.  When thinking about what you can do to serve another person, photography does not always come to mind, but in certain situations what could be more precious and more treasured than those captured memories?  Memories of good and happy times that will last a lifetime.  I (Amanda) am so grateful to one of my best friends from high school who referred to me to Jordan and Zach a couple of months ago.  This incredible couple welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Hannah into the world in March.  At only one month old, sweet Hannah was diagnosed with SMA type 1: a form of spinal muscular atrophy that affects infants within the first few months of their lives. The diagnosis of this specific genetic disease is an incredibly heavy situation, as all the muscle groups eventually lose tone and deteriorate.  This, however, does not effect Hannah’s mind and she is a happy, 3 month old baby girl who loves playing with mom and dad, balloons, getting her diaper changed and bath time.  Oh man does she love bath time!  Annie and I arrived at Zach and Jordan’s home to photograph them just hanging out and going through their daily routine.  Hannah loves watching dad make silly faces and holding her balloons.  When it was time for her bath though, oh that smile just made our hearts melt.  The whole time we were there, she was happiest in the water.  Zach would help her float and then hold her so she could dip her head back into the water and she was just having the time of her life!  After bath time, Hannah pretty much falls straight to sleep, so we took that opportunity to get a few more photos with mom and dad.  I am so impressed with this amazing couple and I am so glad to know them now.  They have some hard trials, but also out of those trials you can see they are also wonderfully blessed.  Hannah is such a beautiful and happy girl and we are truly grateful to have the blessing and opportunity to use our talents to capture this time in their lives.  We look forward to seeing Zach, Jordan and Hannah again and watching her grow.  If you would like to know more about Hannah please visit https://www.crowdrise.com/hannah-elizabeth-costlow-   or https://www.hannahcostlow.com/pages/frontpage

Jennifer, Jason, Bryce & MaryJane-Family Portraits at Trinity Park

Lightly Photography 2016

Here is our first winner from the “Share the Love” contest.  I can’t tell you how sweet this family was!  Jennifer and Jason tried for five years to get pregnant and were finally blessed with little MaryJane in 2012.  The last several years have been hard for this family after they found out MaryJane suffered a stroke after she was born.   Jennifer became a stay at home mom to take care of sweet little MJ and she is learning how to love every moment!  I am so thankful I got to photograph Jennifer, Jason, Bryce, and MJ!

Clint, Kim and Collins – Family Portraits at Trinity Park in Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightllyphoto.com

I feel so blessed to have been the photographer for this wonderful family.  Kim and her family are one of the winners from our recent “Share the Love” contest.  Collins was 3 1/2 when she was diagnosed with Stage II Wilm’s tumor on her kidney on May 21, 2015.  She immediately had emergency surgery on May 22nd to remove her entire right kidney and a 10 inch tumor.  After nearly over a week in the hospital, Collins received her first of 19 weeks of chemotherapy before they were discharged.  She is currently in remission and just had her 3 month scans, which came back CLEAR!  Since yellow is the symbolic color for children’s cancer, they brought some yellow balloons for Collins to release to represent being cancer free!  We are so excited for Collins and her parents and so glad we could give them their first family photos since they found out.
