Painting with kids | Richardson portrait painter

What I’ve always loved (deep down in the bottom of my soul) was putting paint to canvas….specifically as a portrait painter. I loved it so much, I even went through four years of college to receive my degree in painting! I’ve always seen myself as a “painter of light” with photography, and I’ve applied my painting knowledge and technique in a different way with this medium.

Clara | Indoor Newborn Photography | Allen

I love this amazing Allen family! From the first time I did their family shoot when big sis was just a year old, to seeing their growing family…it’s all been a joy.

Her precious little face was made to take pictures of, and she is SO loved by her big sister! Read more

Love • Momma • Grocery Shopping | Richardson Lifestyle Photographer

So here’s another installment in the Love Momma series that I’ve been capturing from the perspective of a lifestyle photographer.

I’m in love with the turquoise table revolution. Oh goodness!! You know when the perfect lighting meets the sweetest REAL family meets the best location? That was this Garland photo session.
