The Alagar Family

It was so much fun doing this extended family shoot at the Dallas Arboretum! We battled the bitter cold with lots of smiles, hugs and happy faces and photos came out so beautifully! ♥

Three Reasons to Have a Mini Family Photography Session This Holiday

Somehow, over time, we have forgotten the sentiment of gift-giving, especially during the holidays. We choose something of materialistic superficial value and gift it as though it means something.

But the truth is that it only takes a few months for the other person to forget where they got their gift from. It’s just a thing to them, a trinket. And that is where we fail in the spirit of gift giving. (more…)


Such a cutie pie! Poor little guy didn’t feel so good during his families session last week! I know buddy, blame it on this crazy Texas weather! Patience and a little time is always needed during these times and luckily we were able to get some of the sweetest photos on him smiling! Loved it and mom did too! ♥

Met Jackeline a few months ago when I did sweet little Mathew’s newborn photos! Such a handsome stud and have to say these, oh gosh! Love how candid they are! As a mom of 3 boys myself, I totally understand the sweet disfunction! Cutes thing ever! ♥

Documenting my own children's lives and they're organic way of being day after day, did I truly understand how PRICELESS photographs were. How much I wanted to spend every waking moment documenting their everyday life, before it too, became a faded memory. Soon after that it became an obsession to capture your very own life, and the life you love! :)
