Vera 18 Months (& Family!)Fort Worth, Texas

This little nugget is 18 months and getting SO big!  Vera is a sweet little thing with lots of sass and I always love getting to have her and her darling family in front of our camera’s.  For this photo shoot we met up at a nature location for some fun in the sun and wagon rides!  Big brother, Oliver was super excited to be in the wagon but Vera wanted it all to herself!  Can you blame her?

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.

Christin and Robert – Engagement Session at Trinity Trails on Trinity River

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.com

I am so excited to share this engagement session.  A few weeks ago we went to scout out this location and when we found it I got incredibly excited.  I knew when I saw it that it would be the perfect spot for Christin and Robert.  They told me they liked an outdoors/nature look and I think I hit the nail on the head if I do say so myself.  I think they were also pretty excited that they were the first of my couples to be photographed at this spot.  I love how sweet Christin and Robert are with each other and were so cute through the whole session.  I really adore them and can’t wait until their wedding in November!  Please enjoy my favorites from their Fort Worth engagement session.

Janie & Kelly Maternity photos at Grassy Trails

Janie Kelly Skillman Maternity Portrait Session couple grassy landscape pink girl Lightly Photography by Tracy Autem

Janie and Kelly were married a few years ago and we had the privilege of photographing them and are SO excited to start this next big journey with them.  Just weeks away from their little girl’s debut their lives are quickly changing and I can’t wait to hold her in my arms and see these two become Mommy and Daddy!  Also I NEED to know this little ones name as they are still deciding, it is SO very hard to know the right name.

 

It is so truly special to follow couples on their lives journey!  Janie is one fabulous looking pregnant lady and I know this little girl is going to be so sweet and cute if she follows in Mommy’s footsteps.  Thanks guys for continuing to trust us and letting us be a part of your lives!

Callie, Jason & Brady – Family Portraits at Train Tracks and Tall Grassy Field

I was SO excited to photograph this family last week.  A few years ago I photographed Callie & Jason’s wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel and Ashton Hotel and now they have this awesome big boy for a son.  Brady just kills me with his cuteness.  I mean, who could not love those curls and baby blue eyes!  This little man is in LOVE with trains so the tracks were the perfect place to capture his attention and allow him some time to play.  We were super lucky because a train actually happened by and stopped for us!  The engineer got off the train and invited Brady to climb on the steps and get his photo taken.  It was so sweet, there needs to be more men like that in the world.  Can’t wait to see how Brady continues to grow and I hope he will get to be a big brother soon!

Jessica, Shawn, Laila & Kingsley {Holiday} Portraits!





 

Last Wednesday before Thanksgiving weekend I was blessed to get to photograph a few couples celebrating their first Christmas as a married couple. I met Jessica and Shawn that morning. They brought along their dogs Laila and Kingsley in order to capture their whole family for the holidays. Here are some of my favorites from their holiday session.

Kimberly & Rob {Engaged} in Fort Worth at Trinity Park and Urban Walls





This past Sunday I had an adventure with Kimberly & Rob. We started by going to Trinity Park and climbing on the railroad tracks there. We then went to various urban walls near our studio. We bonded over our love for the show GREEK which Kimberly and Rob described their relationship as the two main characters involving rival fraternities and sororities.  I always love hearing the stories of how our couples met and Kimberly and Rob were friends for years and started dating about 8 months ago and knew they were meant to be together.

Rachel, Annie & Jessica Father’s Day Portraits





This week I had the pleasure of photographing my good friend Rachel and her two sisters, Annie and Jessica. They are wanting to give their father a portrait for Father’s Day on June 19. I took them to a nearby field with tall grass and then to one of our favorite abandoned buildings. Here are some of my favorites from their Fort Worth Session.

Mr. & Mrs. John Martinez





 

Last weekend I photographed Adrian & John  on their wedding day. It was a beautiful windy day out on Rockwall lake. They had a daytime wedding, and it was very laid-back and super fun! One of the unique things that they did was see each other before the ceremony. We call this a first look. It allows the couple to spend a few quiet moments together before the craziness of the day begins. We also managed to sneak away before they rushed off to their honeymoon for a few romantics at a harbor near by. Here are a few of my favorites…
