Bailey – Class of 2017Senior Portrait

Tracy Autem 2015

It is so fun to get a beautiful young lady in front of my camera to celebrate her senior year!  Bailey is the cousin of 2 of my past brides so I was super excited when her Mom asked me to be apart of this special time in her life.  Bailey is a Senior in Kaufman and is a dedicated girl that is smart and sweet and looking forward to college next year.  When she isn’t working hard to graduate early she can be found hanging with her friends and loves to hunt!  Their family are also HUGE Dallas Cowboy fans – they are America’s team!  It’s a good year to be a Cowboys fan so Bailey sported Dak Prescott’s #4 Jersey for some of her photos.  We explored some nature areas and a bit of the stockyards for her photo session.  I loved Bailey’s sense of style and her gorgeous smile!

Congrats on your senior year!

Kailey & Sam-Engagement SessionFort Worth, TX at Stockyards and Botanic Gardens

Lightly Photography 2016

I loved getting to spend some time with Kailey and Sam before their September wedding. We started their session in the Fort Worth Stockyards where they had dinner on the night they got engaged. We then went to the gardens and it was so nice bc we practically had the place to ourselves. Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session.

Michelle and Alex – Wedding at McKinney Flour Mill

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightlyphoto.com

Michelle and Alex were married a couple of weeks ago at the McKinney Flour Mill.  This couple is so beautiful and inspiring.  They have made it through so much together, with Michelle battling cancer, you could just see how much love they have for each other as their wedding day finally came.  Not only did the two of them join together to become one, but with Michelle’s daughter, Tiera, they became a new family.  Alex not only said his vows to his new bride, but also to his new daughter.  There was not a dry eye in the room while he was placing a very special ring on Tiera’s finger to symbolize that they are a family.  You could see so much love between the three of them and how happy they are to be a family.  After the very touching ceremony, it was time for the reception where Michelle and Alex got to spend time catching up with friends and family and the kids took over the dance floor!  Those kids were loving it and having a blast out there!  At the end of the night, Michelle and Alex shared a very special private dance where they could spend just a little time alone to enjoy each other and their reception space.  They were then sent off with glow sticks to start their new life.  Congratulations you two!

Hopkins Family – Cedar Hill State Park Extended Family Mini Session

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.com

It is always fun to get an extended family in front of my camera.  It is so important to document your kids well beyond their child years and this Momma called me up to just that.  We photographed their daughters wedding a few years ago so it was great to catch up and get them an updated family portrait.  I loved their sweet granddaughter who was a complete ham for photos.  Cedar Hill State Park’s Penn Farm was the perfect backdrop for their mini session!

Take it to heart and plan ahead and look to gather your family for an heirloom portrait like Sara did.

Jennifer & Adam-Engagement at Stockyards and Eagle Mountain Lake Park

Fort Worth Engagement Session Stockyards Eagle Mountain Lake Park Lightly Photography by Sarah Rizy-0015

 

Last week I got to spend time with Jennifer and Adam for their Fort Worth engagement session. We started at the Fort Worth Stockyards where we had fun walking around and trying to dodge the cattle drive. We then drove to Eagle Mountain Lake Park that has a great rustic country setting. At the park Jennifer and Adam demonstrated some dance moves they promised I will see at their June wedding at City Club. Here are some of my favorites from their session.

Josephine is ONE – Family portraits at Eagle Mountain Lake Park

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

So excited about this little girl and her sweet Mommy & Daddy!  This was my first time to meet this family as they just recently moved back to the area with their little angel and she is celebrating turning ONE!  I love her name, It is the name of my own daughter we are expecting in March so of course I was smitten from the moment I met her.  Little Josie is just in love with her Daddy and he makes her laugh and smile from ear to ear!  Thanks for coming out for our fall mini’s and we hope to see you guys again so we can watch this little one grow into a BIG girl!

Scott David is ONE! Family portraits at Rustic Eagle Mountain Lake Park

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Little Scott is ONE!  His birthday party was this weekend and I am SO very excited to share this awesome session at the rustic barn area at Eagle Mountain Lake Park.  This spot with its fence lines, barns and simple backdrop fit this little guy and his family perfectly.  They brought along a truck that was his dad, John’s as a baby and it was cute to watch Scott play with it probably just like his Daddy once did.  He also donned some Baylor Bears clothes and his favorite, Mickey Mouse, so we could see all the things this guy is about at this stage in his life.  I have so enjoyed going on his first year journey with him and watching Mom & Dad grow as parents.  It’s the best to see my once bride and grooms become such amazing Mommies & Daddies!
