Mary’s 1st Birthday – Dallas, TX Children’s Photographer

Being a parent is one one of the hardest, but most rewarding experiences I've ever had. The first few months are filled with so much love and doubt that it's a bit of a roller coaster of emotions. One minute you are just so in love with your new baby and the next you are just so, SO sad that you can't sleep or eat or shower or do anything without the little monster baby right there with you. Then ...

Ray Wedding – Corsicana TX, Wedding Photographer

Maddie and Cody were married just outside of Corsicana on a warm spring evening. With all the rain Texas has been getting for the past couple of months we were seriously worried that the wedding was just going to be a soggy mess. Not good when the ceremony and reception are both outdoors and there is no indoor space to hold the wedding guests. Thankfully we had some sun and some clouds throughout ...

Bag Gardening – Waxahachie TX, Lifestyle Photographer

Some of you may remember one of my first posts on this blog about our little herb garden. In case you missed it, let me fill you in. We are not gardeners over here in the Baca household. We have a house plant that is hanging on for dear life (although it is about 6 years old now) and we grew a small herb garden last summer in a wooden planter box that Chris had specially made for my birthday the y ...

Meeting Blaire – Waxahachie, TX Birth Photographer

Some of you may remember a facebook post I had a few weeks ago where I talked about how I was considering throwing in the towel with this whole photography thing. In case you missed it, basically I was severely discouraged and probably tired and hungry... I don't make good decisions when I lack sleep or need some food - ask anyone who knows me... I get grumpy, REAL grumpy. Anyways, so I decided to ...

Funchess Family – Dallas, TX Family Photographer

This family is so special to our family. We met Calvin and NiCole almost 6 years ago when we moved down from Alaska to Waxahachie to attend Southwestern Assemblies of God University. Calvin was Chris's dorm pastor and I became good friends with NiCole when I was her student worker before Chris and I got married. They have walked with us through some of our biggest life moments and hardest challeng ...

Meeting Preston – Plano, TX Birth Photography

Being a photographer lends me the privilege of being a part of really big life events. A couple's wedding day is something they will likely never forget. I still remember several weddings I attended as a child, the dress I wore and the bow my mom put in my hair. When families hire me to take photos of their newborn baby or their senior graduating from high school, I have the job of capturing these ...

Snow Day – Waxahachie, TX Family Photographer

This has been a weird week. It started off with a snow day. We had been anxiously watching the weather all week as soon as we saw the little snowflake appear on Monday's forecast in the weather app. Like most forecasts in Texas, you can't really rely on anything that is said (no offense weather forecasters), but most people start to get their hopes up as soon as anyone even mentions the chance of ...

Jongejan Wedding – Waxahachie, TX Wedding Photographer

I love breakfast. It doesn't matter if it's morning, noon or night, I could eat it for EVERY. SINGLE. MEAL. I'm not even exaggerating a little... which is kinda sad. I don't know what it is that I love so much about breakfast; the sweetness of a waffle, the savory goodness of a crisp piece of bacon, the wonderful warm feeling when you bite into a fresh biscuit. Man.  Willem and Wendy win the awar ...

Mary Lillia – 6 months, Dallas Family Photographer

I seriously love fall, especially brightly colored leaves when they cover the ground like a blanket. I only wish the season lasted longer down here in Texas, or came during the appropriate month. I think I've become accustomed to these mild Texas "winters" because I just do not enjoy harsh temperatures anymore (I moved here from Alaska 5 years ago). Especially now that I have kids, I just can't wa ...
