Chandler Bridal Portraits – McKinney Cotton MillMcKinney, Texas

Oh my!  Chandler killed this bridal shoot!  Chandler just married her sweetheart a few weeks ago, so now I can post her bridals!  She wore a gorgeous fur shawl that was perfect for her winter wedding which complimented her beautiful gown from Mockingbird Bridal.  Check out a few of my favorite pictures from her session!  The gorgeous flowers were designed by the wonderful Holly Viles.

Hailey and Ted – Engagement Session at Highland Park in Dallas

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightlyphoto.com

Okay, I just can’t even.  I mean seriously.  I always say how amazing all of my couples are and Hailey and Ted are no exception!  I can’t get over it.  I am in love with these photos and this couple.  Hailey and Ted wanted to do their engagement portraits in Highland Park because that is where Ted proposed.  Ted had a bottle of Champagne waiting at a bench in the park while he and Hailey took a walk.  Even though people were eyeing the bottle, nobody touched it and it was luckily still there when they arrived at the bench.  That might have put a kink in his plans if that bottle had gone missing.  I had so much fun with these two and I can’t wait for their wedding in July!

Lisa and John – Engagement Session at Sundance Square Downtown Fort Worth and Trinity Park

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightlyphoto.com

I loved Lisa and John’s engagement session!  We timed it just right so that by the end of the session we would be able to get the lights of downtown in some of their photos and they turned out great! These two are so sweet with each other and I cannot wait for their wedding in October.

Amy and Brian – Engagement Session at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightllyphoto.com

 

I met up with Amy and Brian out in Weatherford at Chandor Gardens last week for their engagement session.  It’s always so fun when I can spend the whole time laughing and joking with my couples.  I love being able to have them be sarcastic with me and me with them.  I don’t know why but I think it makes the session just a little more fun!  I loved that Brian would give me a hard time and then Amy would just roll her eyes.  They were too cute and just so much fun to hang out with.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this coming October!  Check out some of my favorite photos from their Weatherford engagement session.

Kristin and Woody – Engagement Session at Fort Worth Stockyards and Grassy Fields

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.comI am so excited to share these photos today!  I met up with Kristin and Woody out at the Stockyards to get a little bit of a rustic feel for their pictures but then we headed for some fields of tall grass and trees where the light was to die for!  I mean honestly, this couple plus beautiful lighting equals AMAZING photos.  Kristin and Woody have known each other since they were in the first grade, but didn’t reconnect until later in life on Facebook.  I loved photographing these guys.  They have such wonderful  chemistry and are so much fun to be around, I  just cannot wait for their wedding day which is coming up soon!  They are getting married in December and it is sure to be fabulous.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Fort Worth engagement session.

Morgan and Jordan – Wedding Reception at Classic Oaks Ranch

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.comAfter the ceremony we headed outside to get some fun photos on the gorgeous property of Classic Oaks, while they flipped the room for the reception.  Morgan and Jordan had a spontaneous idea and decided they wanted to go down to the front gates to take photos with the camels.  I kind of loved this idea so we did it!  How many times do you get to have a camel in your wedding photos after all?  Once the party began it didn’t stop.  The dance floor was packed, they played the newly wed game and Jordan even ordered himself a pizza to be delivered before the night was over.  I have really enjoyed working with Morgan and Jordan and I would just like to say congratulations to them and I can’t wait to see what the future brings them.

Welcome Baby Oliver Kenneth! DFW Newborn Photographer

Newborn_Portrait_session_in_Studio_Fort_Worth_photographer_Lightly_Photography_by_Tracy_Autem_0004I am SOOOO excited about this little guy.  He is the first baby born to one of my favorite couples I have ever worked with.  Their families are awesome, they are totally in love and Mallory and Ryan are going to be spectacular parents to little Oliver.  I can’t wait to watch him grow and to see their lives be changed by this tiny man.  He was a dream during his session, I just wanted to hold him all day and in all seriousness it was hard to even put him down for his photos.

Welcome to the world, you will surely be loved.

Welcome Baby Finley Gray – Fort Worth Newborn, Sibling & Family Photos

Photo by Tracy Autem of Lightly Photography 2013 http://lightlyphoto.comThis little guy and his big brother Reese are to die for cute.  I couldn’t wait to meet him after Mom’s maternity session earlier this fall.  Reese is doing a great job as a big bro and was so excited to hold and kiss baby Fin for me (and for the Coke Dad promised him if he behaved.)  He earned it as he was awesome!  Fin was a little rock star too sleeping almost entirely through his session.  I love the little chub he is already holding on to and the sweet head of hair he has.  Precious is the only word I have for this guy.  Thanks Michelle and Kyle for trekking out to Fort Worth and letting me follow you on your journey, you are great parents!
