Kendall & Collin – Engagement at Nature Park & Sundance SquareFort Worth, Texas

These two braved the cold for their early morning engagement session!  We were able to capture some beautiful Texas fall color while we explored.  Check out some of my favorite photos from their session.  Can’t wait for their wedding next year!


Nicole & Jacob – Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the BRIKFort Worth, TX

Nicole & Jacob got married on a beautiful, if not slightly warm (Hello Texas!), day in Fort Worth.  I have had the privilege of shooting at BRIK before and I just love it.  With all the natural light and fun textures this is definitely a great space to get married.  She chose some great vendors to make this Texas themed wedding come alive.  The bridesmaids wore beautiful navy dresses that complimented the white, ivory, and light blue florals.  As the bride and groom kissed for the first time, family and friends rang cow bows!  How fun!  These two also had a very fun band play during their reception.  The Dick Beldings are a 90s cover band that one of the groomsman is a member of.  Not your average wedding band!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their wedding!


Special thanks to all the vendors!

Atali – 9 Months Portraits in Fort Worth Fairmount Neighborhood

Little Atali is a sweet angel that her Mommy and Daddy waiting a long time for.  She is 9 months old and from the time I spent with them I know she is beyond loved, she is cherished.  Adopted when she was only a few days old this girl is an answered prayer and a bundle of joy.  Glad I could capture her at this darling age and get to know her amazing parents.

Sellers Family – Rustic Urban Walls Portrait in Fort Worth


college ave fort worth urban rustic by tracy autem lightly photography

The Sellers family are friends with a few of my other clients so I was excited to meet them and their two little ones, Liz and Sloan.  I love these sisters and how different they are yet perfectly matched personality wise.  Having two kids of my own I always love seeing the dynamics between siblings, and however different, they usually compliment one another well.  Mom, Tracy, did a great job on outfits as I always love a pop of red from the sisters sweet heart sweaters to her own red heels and belt.

Ashliman Family Portraits – Fort Worth Rustic Urban Location

These sisters were super sweet and each so unique in their personalities.  It was great to finally meet this family as my team has been able to photograph them before through Operation Love Reunited.  We met this family at the airport when Dad was coming home from deployment so it was great to see them all together and expecting baby number 4!  I know they will be finding out any day now if it’s a boy or girl and these sisters are split on if they want a brother or another sister.  I hope regardless the baby is healthy and perfect!

Wade, Amanda & Tate – Fort Worth Family Portraits on College Ave

Tate is a munchkin full of energy and a boy to the bone and that made me just fall for him completely.  He completely reminds me of my own silly boys.  Tate’s Mom and Dad are another of my past wedding clients so it was great to catch up and meet this little guy.  You can tell how much fun he has with his parents in these two photos with each parent.  I love his energy and his sweetness.

-Tracy Autem

Um, I just want to scoop him up and hug him.  Look at that pout!!!



Austin, Megan & Addy – Family Portraits at Rustic Vintage Urban Location

Addy is WALKING!!!! I am so excited and can not believe how big this little girl is getting.  It was last Winter when I photographed her newborn photos and watching her grow has been amazing.  She will be one soon but Megan and Austin wanted to get some holiday portraits before we glam it up and get girly for her one year celebration.  They joined me at one of my favorite rustic vintage locations to play and Addy cracked me up with some CRAZY faces.  Her personality is definitely forming and she gets more and more like her Mommy every time I see her.

-Tracy Autem

LOVE her crazy faces, she cracks me up.  She was shaking her arms and smiling so big it was almost scary.  Love her.

I think this captures her spirit.

So happy.

It’s about me guys, all about me.  Forget those people behind me.


Head Family Portrait at Rustic Urban Location near our Fort Worth Studio

OH how I could photograph these two for hours.  I wanted to keep them and take them for hot chocolate and play some more.  Josephine and Eliza are dolls and have personality to boot.  Josie (the BIG sister) is super silly and loved hamming it up for the camera.  Eliza is sweet and I loved her playful attitude.  The parents, Hayden & Alison were pretty cool too.  I just loved photographing this family at one of our rustic urban locations near by our studio in Fort Worth.

-Tracy Autem

p.s. I think I have fallen in love with children and family portraits.  Weddings you still have a big chunk of my heart but portraits are creeping their way in there.

BIG hugs!

Look at that face, you know she is ready to play.

Little Eliza has a sneaky face (above) but I got that smile out of her in the end.

Like I said, Hamming it up for me.  Such a little poser.

Sweet sisters.

OK, enough with the cuteness of the little ones, here is the entire family looking amazing.

These last two photos make me joyful, they completely capture the essence of these two girls personalities at PLAY.

Jaclyn & Javier {Engaged} at Clark Gardens & Downtown Weatherford

Last week I met up with Jaclyn & Javier at the beautiful Clark Gardens. We had several interesting encounters during their session. We ran into hundreds of daddy long legs, sat in some ants and ran into some geese and a peacock. We tried to get the geese in the photos but they just wanted to run away from us. Here are some of my favorites from their Weatherford engagement session.
