the frakes | dallas newborn photographer

Sweet baby Michalena Gracie!! She was born on April 24th and she’s such a beauty…and delight to photo. She slept almost the entire time! I hope little Finley is like that :D. Only 2.5 more weeks to go and she should be here!

casey + caleb | victoria photographer | couples session

Casey and Caleb are such a blast! I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this awesome couple over the last five years, and this session was in celebration of their 5 year anniversary! I can’t believe it’s already been FIVE years. I sound so old, but seriously where does the time go?

We started off in downtown Victoria and finished up at their BEAUTIFUL home.

alanna + garret | victoria photographer | brackenridge park session

Sweet Alanna and Garret!! This couple is so dear, I loved how they treated each other, talked to each other, and were just generally such a positive force to be around. We did their session at Brackenridge Park in Edna. This is were they will be getting married in September! I cannot wait, it’s going to be so beautiful.

This park holds a special place in my heart! I actually grew up in Inez, Texas, which is about 30 minutes away from this park! I have a lot of memories, camping, swimming in the lake, and playing in the playground :D. Awww!
