These Fort Worth family photos featured one of my favorite families that came back to me for year two of family photos. This time we headed to Oakmont Park and crossed our fingers that we would find some good fall color even though it was very late in the season.


It's safe to say that Oakmont definitely did not disappoint, and neither did this family! They were (once again) so so easy and cooperative, and how fun are those outfits! Hanging out with wonderful people like this family is the absolute best part of my job.


This family chose to donate to one of my personal favorites Operation Underground Railroad, an organization that rescues children from slavery. Gotta love some fellow modern day abolitionists!
























So many happy feels for these Fort Worth plant nursery family photos, because this was the session that started it all! Courtney reached out to me for family photos for her adoption profile book through the incredible kindredand.co and since I'm all about supporting adoption, I didn't feel good about charging her. So I offered a trade - she could use her super Instagram skills to help me with my new give back wedding planning website merrilly.co and in exchange I could do her multi-day photoshoot for free.


Turns out Courtney killed it with my social media and we fell in love with the idea of us teaming up in the give back world. I also saw that she had a true eye for photography and so I jumped on my chance and invited her to join the GIVE team as my new associate photographer. It's funny to look back on these photos and realize I had no idea what was coming for us! I am so happy this photoshoot happened and changed both of our lives.


Courtney has since adopted the SWEETEST little baby girl and since I took these photos, I'm pretty sure that baby is half mine. Adoption rocks!
















I cannot get enough of these Denton Jeep senior photos! Trinity was so fun to work with and as a huge perk, I got to chat with her mama who is a true angel on this earth. I met her through the local nonprofit organization she directs called Refuge for Women North Texas where she assists in providing a place of refuge for sexually exploited women. I first volunteered my services with the organization for a purity ceremony with one of their residents who was rededicating themselves to God (it was set up very similarly to a typical wedding ceremony). It was such a special experience and a great reminder of why I first got into photography. I have since offered my services for their galas, including their upcoming gala on April 16th These are amazing people doing incredible work and I highly recommend checking them out!
