Denisha Maternity Shoot

Denisha’s red flowing dress with a long chiffon train channels her inner Queen Elsa while also showing off her adorable baby bump. Her curled up-do and beautifully bronzed smokey eyes paired perfectly with the striking color of the dress. Not to mention, all the bold contrasting colors made her bright blue eyes pop! Here at From The Hip Photo, we think that a mommy-to-be should never be afraid of being bold! Embrace the nine month chapter of your life with open arms!

I have a great time shooting this beautiful couple as they were excited for their first born. Spending the evening with them was like hanging out with old friends. Even though we met for the first time at Grapevine Botanical Garden, by the end of our shoot I felt like I'd always known these two.

I wish the best of luck to them on their new adventure with their first born!

Alimah's Family Shoot

I had the lucky task of photographing this adorable family. I loved taking picture of Alimah’s Family. They were definitely not camera shy and they all looked amazing. I did not have to do much. They were all ready to pose and easy to work with. I had a great time knowing the family and saw the love they had with each other.

It was such an honor when Alimah asked if I can photograph her family portrait session at the Grapevine Botanical Garden.  I had such an incredible time hanging out with this sweet and genuine family.  There was nothing but smiles and laughter!! Alimah and her husband have two lovely kids and they all were such a joy to be around.  It was so great spending the day with them.

As we wind down from wedding season, we begin a new season…  Family portrait photography. Family pictures are especially popular in September, October, November, and early December; it’s  perfect for holiday cards.  One of the things I love about family sessions is being able to share the couple’s “continuation of happiness” from their wedding day.  From being engaged, to getting married, to creating a family of their own, all of which I’m so honored to preserve.  

Enjoy these images from the Alimah’s family session!

Christenson Family Shoot

As we wind down from wedding season, we begin a new season… Family Photography Sessions.  Family pictures are especially popular in October, November, and early December; it’s  perfect for holiday cards.  One of the things I love about family sessions is being able to share the couple’s “continuation of happiness” from their wedding day.  From being engaged, to getting married, to creating a family of their own, all of which I’m so honored to preserve.  

Christenson family was a delight to work with .  I’m so excited to share with you… the Christenson family!! The Family little shy at first, but by the end of the session, we were best friends!!  In fact, he had to sit next to his new best friend (that would be me). We continue to establish our relationship with the family.

Moledina Family Shoot

They say beneath a mother’s feet is the pathway to heaven. Okay, obviously not literally, but it makes sense right? Our mothers lay the foundation on which we grow and learn the difference between right and wrong, good and evil, modesty and arrogance. It is simple, the goal of every mother is but one: to guide her children to be the best people that they can be.

Ms. Maroonisa is exactly this kind of mother. She has persevered through all the ups and downs that life has given to her with grace and humility. Her goal too, was but one, to raise kind and loving children. Knowing the family for over two decades, I can whole-heartedly confirm that she has been successful in the way she has nurtured her daughter, Heena and her son, Shan Ali Moledina. It was an honor to be able to see this family overflowing with love and happiness during this humbling photo shoot.

Zaria & Izzy Fall Shoot

With the holidays being just around the corner, it seems like 2017 has flown by in the blink of an eye. What else has changed so quickly? How fast our girls are growing! We love capturing different moments of our children’s lives so that we can have these memories to treasure in instances like this; when we realize an entire year has gone by.

Zaria is our 6-year-old diva. She is smart, strong and never falters to ask the hardest questions- whether we want to answer them or not! However, Zaria also has a very big heart. She will give her last piece of candy to her sister or give away a toy to a friend that wants it. She has even donated her long beautiful hair to the Pantene’s Locks for Love on the eve of her 5th birthday. She definitely is a very beautiful little girl, both inside and out.

Izra, Izzy for short, is our 4-year-old fire-cracker. She is witty, independent, and boy is she persistent! Izzy will not mold into a confined box, just because she has been asked to do so. Oh no, she will analyze and determine what she feels is the best for her. Izzy is the perfect example of a whisper on the outside with a roar on the inside. She is so cool and collected…and that too as a 4-year-old? She never seizes to amaze us.

This year, we missed a lot of opportunities to take pictures of our girls, because of the weather, prior commitments, or even us just being too tired from the weeks long hustle and bustle. We finally got the perfect opportunity, on a rather gloomy day, to take Zaria and Izzy’s fall photos. Check them out and let us know what you think!

Alina's Graduation Shoot

Alina is a total ray of sunshine.

I don’t use this phrase often because I love it and I feel like, if I say it a ton, it loses it’s value (which probably isn’t true at all but totally makes sense in my head) but, really, Alina is just a total ray of sunshine. Erin is graduating from the University of Dallas in just a few short weeks and, to celebrate this amazing accomplishment (go Alina!!), we took some awesome senior photographs and I am totally obsessed with every single one. This girl is so full of personality and so much life! I loved photographing her!!

We started Alina’s session with some traditional graduation shots and, afterwards, it was one of the most fun sessions I have had in, like, the longest time (and all of my senior sessions are the best!!). Alina has this amazing boho feel to her – I swear she belongs in a Free People ad or magazine – and, after a super dreary day, the sun magically came out as soon as we stepped into the forest. We were so excited!! I absolutely loved photographing Alina – she is one of the most likable people I have ever met – and I am so excited to share these with y’all today!
