Landry & Chloe | Maternity Photography

Landry and Chloe make for one afternoon well spent. I met them a few years ago when they were enjoying their engagement and wedding journey. And now… they are welcoming a little one and i am SO excited to take a moment to capture this happy time in their life!

And as if having a baby & selling their home weren’t enough… they are also building and opening a new wedding venue here in Amarillo! It’s just further proof of their ability to shine and choose joy in all circumstances and to really MOVE in this life and their world.

Be sure to check out their website – Homestyle Country Weddings as they build!!!

mWChloe000mWChloe001mWChloe002beautifulmWChloe003mWChloe004mWChloe005my favorite thing about these two is their overwhelming joy. they are so happy and laugh easily and often. Being in front of the camera is nerve wracking. But when these two feel awkward, they laugh their way through it. It’s my most favorite thing about our sessions together… their ability to smile and laugh their way through it together. mWChloe006mWChloe007mWChloe008mWChloe009mWChloe010Thank you SO much for being you. and for being so real. i feel so “at home” with the two of you and cannot say enough about your spirit. your laughter. and your genuine presence. You are the salt of the earth and i am over the moon for all the exciting things happening in your lives! also… remind me to talk to you about birth photos! {{wink}}

Blakely Ann | Amarillo Birth Photography

i want to tell you a million things about the evening when Blakely became a part of this world and made Dallas and Caroline parents.  I have never witnessed a more loving and encouraging and uplifting evening as family and friends waited anxiously for the arrival of this little gem.

Labor began in the wee hours of morning and ended almost twenty four hours later.  Nothing in this world could be more worth the wait. Blakely is perfect and beautiful and so so loved.

bMBlakely000bMBlakely001bMBlakely002when people ask me why i love birth photography so much, i tell them it’s because i get to witness so much love. it’s when i feel the closest to God… you know… being able to see His promise and miracle. in these tender moments i feel so connected and alive. bMBlakely003bMBlakely004Dallas … you are already such an amazing father. bMBlakely005bMBlakely006bMBlakely007bMBlakely008bMBlakely009a few days later, i met them at home for newborn photos. blakely had already changed so much.

Thank you for being so dedicated and faithful. Loyal, passionate and loving. and for infusing God’s goodness into everyone you come into contact with. I already had so much care for our friendship and Blakely… she just made everything so complete. I love this little girl as if she were mine… and cannot be more honored to have been there in the moments that she made her home in your arms and hearts.  thank you again and again for sharing this special life with me.
