Webster’s dictionary says that heritage is something handed down from the past.  Your photographs should showcase you and your personality at that moment in time so they can be the heritage that your children and grand children inherit.  Here in the Tyler area, that can mean anything from a lifestyle senior session of you fishing on Lake Tyler.

To “that laugh”….. You know that laugh, and every friend and family member of yours could identify you in a crowded room from that laugh of yours.  Even seeing a photograph of you laughing causes them to “hear” that laugh of yours.


Preserve your heritage.  The last thing your children will ever have of you will be photographs.  Make sure you’re in them!



Newborn Portraits in Bullard, TX

Adorable baby Silas Heath was born on April 16th 2016 in Tyler, Texas and now resides in Bullard, TX.newborn photographs tyler tx Normally, at the end of a three or four-hour newborn photo shoot, I am covered in baby poop, pee and tears (sometimes of the exhausted mother) but Silas went out like a light!  Besides one little sprinkler accident, Silas slept through two hours of an indoor shoot and jostling around on the walk to and positioning of him for the outdoor portion of our shoot.  I was impressed!  Mom & Granny patiently held a blanket up to block his little body from the sun so he wouldn’t wind up with a sunburn.photographer of newborn babies tyler txWe had to wake him up at hour four just so mom could get some awake photos with baby.  And adorable portraits they are!  Mom loves her precious little baby so much.
