Branden, Heather, Van, and AveryFamily Portrait Session in the Stockyards, Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

I had a great time getting to know this sweet family!  The kiddos, Avery and Van, were so great and happy to be taking pictures.  Branden’s service dog, Capone, also made it into several photos and was as sweet as can be.  It was such an honor to take photos for this family.  Thank you for your service to our country, Branden!

Welcome Baby Ava – Dallas In Home Newborn Session

Tracy Autem 2015

Ashley & Travis welcomed home Ava, a precious baby girl weighing 7lbs 12oz and 20 inches long on February 26, 2016. She is doted on by her parents, and even her two furry siblings love her and were close by during the session. Ava was very sweet, and loved to be wrapped up and cuddled.  Check out her sweet nursery decked out in pink!  Congratulation Ashley and Travis!

Oliver – Sitting Up at Van Zandt Cottage

Sitting up Session Van Zandt Cottage Fort Worth Lightly Photography by Tracy Autem-0005
Oliver is growing up!  Look at this little man sitting and grabbing his toes!  I just adore his big eyes and curious face.  He is ready to MOVE!  Don’t you lay him on his back now, that is not where he is in a position to see and bee seen.  Put him on his tummy or sit him up and he is happy as a clam.  Loving watching him grow this year!  Oliver joined me at Van Zandt Cottage last week for his sitting stages session – it was HOT but he was a trooper.  See you next time bud at the big ONE!

Avery and David – Sibling Portraits at Van Zandt Cottage in Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.comI always love when this family comes into town!  I haven’t seen Avery since Christmas and I was excited that I got to have Avery and her brother, David, together this time.  I can’t believe how big they are getting!  We headed over to Van Zandt cottage and got some really cute photos of them together in the little red wagon and then a few individuals on the porch.  It was the perfect spot for this brother and sister.

Merry Christmas from my little family and the team at Lightly Photography!  Here is our very own Fall Portraits taken by my awesome associate team, Sarah Rizy & Amanda McCollum.  I love all these as they really show off my families silliness.  In case you didn’t know I am totally outnumbered, A husband, 2 sons, a boy dog and a  male cat means a whole lot of boy and little girly me.  We have lots of fun and I don’t think I would have it any way.

Baby Graham- Newborn Portrait Session at Fort Worth Studio

Kelly Levi Stowe Family Newborn Portrait Session hate beenie yellow orange wrap linen wooden box cover suspenders bucket bowtie blue boy Fort Worth studio Lightly Photography by Tracy Autem

Welcome baby Graham!  This little bug is adorable and stole my heart, much like his parents stole our hearts at their wedding a few years ago at Chandor Gardens.  We love following our couples journeys and were thrilled to meet this little guy.  Graham was a doll during his session and being a sweet moldable man for me and I could have probably photographed him all day but allas I think I was wearing his Mom and Dad out. 🙂  This year I get to see him grow and I can’t wait to see if he looks more like Kelly or Levi or whose personality he reflects.  See you soon little chunk!
