A Timely Spring

{Dallas Family Photographer | Dallas Child Photographer | DFW Photographer }

After having lived in Michigan as long as I did (that is, 3/4 of my life!), I am pretty accustomed to Spring coming, well, late.  And then staying for about 10 minutes.  :-)  Now, I’ve moved to Dallas, where Spring showed up right when the calendar said it was supposed to, and I’ve been soaking it all in and enjoying every moment (even the crazy thunderstorms!), taking the opportunity to photograph the beauty of Spring in Texas, especially the beloved State Flower, the Bluebonnet.

Lucky me, I live a few minutes’ drive from a vast field of bluebonnets, and I had a blast with two of my kids in the golden hour light.

Early 2014 Babies | Dallas Newborn Photography

{dallas newborn photographer | dallas baby photographer | dallas family photography}

Early 2014 has brought lots of beautiful new souls into the world, and I was lucky enough to be there to capture them in those first days, when they are all sorts of squishy, sleepy goodness.  Photographing newborns is such a rewarding job.  Not only do I get my baby “fix”, but parents are able to get, in photographs, images of their beautiful children, knowing full well that the newborn stage is fleeting….and FAST.  7 weeks will fly by and they will wonder where their teeny baby went!

Are you in Dallas and looking for a photographer to capture your newborn in that first precious week of life?  Whether you want a more “lifestyle” photo session, relaxed, in your own home, or more “posed”, I’d be delighted to be your newborn’s photographer.  And if the parents, siblings and pets want to join in the fun, the more the merrier!  Contact SallyKate Photography today to set up your session.

Ice and Fire

{Dallas Portrait Photographer | North Texas Senior Photography | Dallas Child Photographer}

Things sure were very, very, very busy back in the tundra, before I packed my things to move to Dallas, but no way was I going to miss a chance to have a styled photo session with two of my very favorite photographer friends, Stephanie and Jeanine.  I rounded up two darling teenagers I know (and adore), and we got them a couple of amazing dresses, and those girls sported the sleeveless gowns in two (three) feet of snow, like champs.  We couldn’t have asked for a better evening.  It was cold, I won’t lie.  And thawing afterwards might have taken a ridiculously long time.  But the night began with beautiful, gently falling snow, and cleared just in time for a fiery golden hour sky to provide the perfect backdrop for these beautiful young ladies.  I’d say the night was definitely worth drying my pants up against a space heater for over an hour…

New Times Two

{Dallas Newborn Photographer | North Texas baby photographer | Dallas baby Photographer}

I had the incredible opportunity to photograph my very first set of newborn twins, alongside Jamie of Gingersnapography, and these guys were so incredibly adorable.  Gorgeous identical twin boys with the most amazing eyelashes I’ve ever seen on a newborn!  Seriously, wow.

Am I right?

Always Fun!

{North Texas Family Photography | Dallas Family Photographer | DFW Child Photographer }

Ah, one of my most-very-favorite families to photograph, and such loyal clients for the last two years.  Every single time I meet up with these wonderful people for family photography time, it is ALWAYS a blast, always new and interesting, and always beautiful.  I just love these people so much.  So much that I will have to keep traveling back to Michigan frequently, just so they don’t have to miss any of their quarterly photo sessions.;-)

We headed outside, where the snow was nearly over the kids’ heads at this point, and this guy loved it.
