Hey there! I'm Angela.

When I asked Shelby to tell me how he proposed, this is what she said…”Well it’s kind of a long story LOL but we picked out the ring together a little while ago so I knew he had it and that it would be coming soon. We’ve been talking through details and I knew he was trying to plan something special. But he was putting a lot of pressure on himself LOL he called me that Tuesday night to tell me that he was going to do some big thing in my classroom with my kids, but that he kept getting the feeling I didn’t want it to be in front of people. Which I didn’t. (Good call!)
So he made reservations for Ipanema Brazilian Steakhouse that night and I just knew it was coming!! I got all dressed up and right before we were about to walk in he grabbed my arm and I immediately thought it was happening LOL and he hugs me and says please don’t be mad but I forgot the ring!! 🤣🤣🤣 so I was like 😳🤣🤣
So after we got back to the house, and had been about two hours, I thought for sure it wasn’t happening so I went and got in pajamas and took off my make up and then he asked me to go outside LOL and I said no 🤣🤣🤣
He is used to dealing with my moods and he is a saint 🤣🤣 we talked outside for a little while and I cried because I felt so silly LOL then he asked me please not to move and he literally sprinted to the truck LOL he opened the box and it has a light in it, so being outside in the dark and the light on it looked like a disco ball shining! We both busted out laughing and he got down on one knee and asked so sweetly. And that’s our story.”
And here we are, on a blustery, rainy summer day for their engagement session at Protea.

Ready for some serious family photography eye candy? These people are so good looking, and the location on their property is what photographers dreams are made of.

We had to reschedule their session due to bad weather, and boy am I glad we did. We had beautiful blue skies, with even more beautiful golden light.

Enjoy!

When a well respected family photographer asks you to do their family pictures (again), first you do a little dance, then you start worrying about doing a stellar job.

Well, these sweet people made my job very, very easy. Momma found the perfect location, and we rolled through the session with snuggles, laughs, and some hugs! These adorable kiddos are equal parts sugar & spice, and I just love being in their company!

Be sure to check out Megan at Halcyon Days Photography. She is a very talented, Gainesville based photographer.

I knew all along that Meagan was going to totally rock Dallas’ One Year / Gladwell Family portrait session, and yet she still amazed me! This super talented, hard working momma juggled all the balls that day to pull this one off. She’s spends all day, every day raising little people, both at work and home, and she’s loved by so many!

And just look at her results!

Sweet kiddos who I can’t get enough of and would love to put in my pocket and take home with me. Of course, let’s all give dad a big huge nod… all his girls adore him, and he obviously will do anything for them, including sitting in front of a flowered teepee in his front yard!

Speaking of their front yard! I could have stayed there forever. They have an absolutely gorgeous view.

So that’s enough of me gushing over this sweet, kind, funny, and stunningly beautiful family!

Now, enjoy some eye candy courtesy of a momma who knows how to celebrate!

This is the family session that literally weathered a storm, and it was worth it!

Megan had a bit of a hard time finding a session date, which is a common problem as we get closer to the holidays. And after daylight savings, there’s even more difficulty as sessions start at 4 pm, which feels so early.

So, when the beautiful day turned stormy, we had to push through. We managed to get in some pictures before the storm and some more after.

You’ll notice the difference vibe and color, which was pretty cool to us!

Hold on to your hats for this family session! This supremely fun and free family totals 10 humans!

I had a ball with this laid back family. There were no rules, no crazy expectations, and best of all, mom wanted the kids to be completely themselves. It made for a good time, with an unexpected and happy ending.

Welcome to the Morgan Family Petite Photo Session!

We get so much out of a 30 minute session, and truthfully that’s about the limit for a toddler!

And this toddler! Oh my! She was a bundle of joy and excitement. She was eager to show off her outfit and loved taking pictures…. for about 7 minutes. Then she was ready to run! Good thing 7 minutes is all I need to get that smile-at-the-camera picture. Then we played! I sure got in my steps keeping up with her!

Then this momma. She was radiantly proud of her family, and she had every right. They are a fun bunch who love to love each other. It was a joy to watch her smile get so big as she watched her babies smile and giggle!

See for yourself!
