Studio Photography – McKinney TX

This year I am doing things a little differently. I’ve decided to use studio photography for my Winter sessions instead of outdoors. Texas weather can be so unpredictable, and last year I struggled fitting in my clients for outdoor Christmas sessions. This year I prepared! I found a super cute studio for rent in the … Read more

Birthday Photos – Legacy West Plano

My son was turning 11 this July, and I asked him where he’d like to take his birthday photos this year. He promptly replied, “the Gucci store”. LOL! Here I was thinking that he wanted to go out in a field and run around. Nope, he wanted to dress up and go all out. His … Read more

Hickman Family Adventure – March 2020 Enchanted Rock

I won’t be able to photograph every month’s adventure because some of them involve water, and I refuse to take my precious camera in water (well, for the most part).

For Christmas this year, my husband and I gifted our kids a box filled with 12 envelopes. Each envelopes represented a month out of the year. At the beginning of each month, they get to open the envelope and read what adventure we picked for our family to do. It was a little tough coming … Read more
