The theme of this sessions is TWO!  Jacks is turning 2 very shortly and Mommy Morgan is about to have baby #2.  In fact this little guy or gal will be here in time to see their big brother’s birthday.  Jacks is pretty excited to be getting the ultimate birthday present – a promotion to big brother even if he isn’t 100% sure what that means.  I know this little guy will be a great big bro and I know Mom & Dad are ready to know – pink or blue!  I have so much admiration for anyone that can hold out and keep the gender a surprise until they deliver.  It has to make the last few weeks even more full of excitement and anticipation then I could ever understand.  I am bursting to know too though, because I get to photograph this little bundle when they arrive.   Mom, as always, is looking gorgeous!  I have loved this lady since I first met her for her New Years Eve wedding and ever since ringing in that new year with them I have been so blessed to capture all their other news!  Love you guys and see you soon! -Tracy van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-4 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-1 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-5 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-6 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-7 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-8 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-9 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-10 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-11 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-12 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-13 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-14 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-15 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-16 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-17 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-18 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-19 van zandt cottage fort worth portrait photo session maternity expecting brother siblings tracy autem lightly photogrpahy morgan-20

Madeline and Colin – Engagement Session at Van Zandt Cottage and Sundance Square

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.comI am so excited to get to share Madeline and Colin’s engagement session.  Seriously, these two couldn’t have been any cuter and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect.  Madeline and Colin met at TCU in their Stats class and will be graduating this year.   They will not be getting married here in Texas, which makes me sad, but up in Oregon where Madeline is from.  From what they’ve told me about their wedding day, it is going to be simply beautiful and I’m totally jealous that I won’t be photographing their big day.  I feel so honored to have had the chance to meet them and photograph their engagement session.  Please enjoy some of my favorites!

Lucy is ONE! Happy Birthday at Van Zandt Cottage

So many of our babes are turning ONE lately!  Lucy had a pumpkin patch themed birthday party earlier this fall and it is just perfect to share the eve of Thanksgiving!  I loved the vibrant pinks and oranges her Mommy selected for her party and Lucy LOVED her cake!  Man how she loved that cake.  We saved it until very last during her session and she perked right up and was ready to dig in when she saw it.  I love this girls style, and even though she refuses to wear a bow she is undeniably all girl!  Happy Birthday Lucy Jane!  I have loved following you this year and know she will become a darling little lady as she grows.

Happy Birthday to Lucy and Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Asher is ONE!  How can that be?  Well, as the year has gone by he has just grown in cuteness and those curls are starting to come in!  He is all boy and spent the majority of our session trying to heat lots of fiber – dirt, sticks things like that.  I love it!  Got to let the boy be a boy.  His Momma and Daddy joined in for some sweet family photos with their big man!  He is starting to walk with assistance and any day now this kid is going to take off!  Happy Birthday Asher!

Addison – Baby Pushing up Milestone and Family

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

Addison is getting so big and her sweetness just steals my heart each time.  The daughter of one of my past bride and groom’s I was so happy Daddy Adam could join us for this session since he missed out on the newborn shoot.  I loved seeing him cradle his little love in his arms.  See you again soon Addy!

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.

Robin and Mike – Engagement Portraits at Van Zandt Cottage and Trinity Trails Fort Worth

Engagement Session Van Zandt Cottage Trinity Trails Waterfall Amanda McCollum Lightly Photography Robin Mike-0005

Oh man am I excited about this session!  Robin and Mike are just the cutest.  They met at TCU and you know how much I love my fellow Horned Frogs.  We started out over at Van Zandt Cottage and they were making each other giggle and laugh and being super sweet.  We then headed over to the waterfall area that I love SO much off of Trinity Trails.  There, we got somewhat adventurous getting to a really awesome spot, walking through some not so great looking water.  We were joking that we may all grow webbed feet or something.  I had such a great time with these two and I can’t wait for their wedding in January to take place at UCC and Fort Worth Club. Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Fort Worth engagement session.

Graham is ONE! Birthday Smash Cake at Van Zandt Cottage

Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography 2014

What a glorious mess Graham made with his birthday cake!  He was ALL about it.  Mom, Kelly, thought it might be too big for a smash cake but I think Graham thought it was just right!  Kelly brought this super cute red vintage high chair for his session and I loved it!  It was perfect with his little overalls!  So classic.  Graham is a hoot and loves to stick his tongue out at pretty much all times.  I am so sad for this little’s year to come to an end as I have enjoyed watching him grow from a newborn to a big boy!  Happy Birthday Graham!

Fort Worth Engagement Session at Trinity Park and Van Zandt Cottage Lightly Photography by Sarah Rizy-0008

 

I met up with Ansley & Stuart last week after they came home for the summer.  Stuart has just graduated from Baylor and Ansley is on a break from OU. Ansley & Stuart basically grew up together but it wasn’t until high school they decided to date. I am so looking forward to their Decmber wedding at Ashton Gardens. Here are some of my favorites from their Fort Worth engagement session.
