Portes Family Shoot

"The love of a family is life’s greatest blessings”

I had an opportunity to work with Portes Family. They contacted me to set up a family session at Fort Worth Botanical Garden. They love the nature and doing it at the Botanical Garden was the perfect place for it.

The day of their session, it was the perfect temperature outside. I love fall in Fort Worth, TX because it tends to be on the warmer side so nobody is freezing cold during session! Of course, this can change, but for the most part fall sessions are pretty comfortable for everyone.

Since the little baby wasn’t quite sitting up comfortably on her own just yet, we started with daddy and me images. If your baby can sit up for a few seconds at a time, we have a few tricks to get some images of them sitting up alone and well! If your bay can’t sit up at all, no worries! There are so many other that we can do and you’ll have a beautiful and varied gallery regardless.

Enjoy the images from Portes Family Session! I can’t get enough of this family. They love and enjoy taking pictures!

Roxxana + Zeek


"You make me happy in a way no on else can"

The season of engagement sessions is upon us and I just LOVE it!!! I had the opportunity to work with Roxxana and Zeek last month and my heart was just melting during their entire shoot. They are the SWEETEST couple and they snuggled and giggled the entire time I was shooting, whether I posed them or not!! That’s a photographers dream right there  You can see how much they love each other in every photo I took and I couldn’t be more in love with these two!!!

Los Colinas Canals is one of my favorite locations to photograph in Dallas, TX. The architecture is so grand it’s always the perfect excuse to dress up. Roxxana and Zeek opted to wake up early in the morning to hit Los Colinas Canals at 8 AM to photograph without any people in the background. I will say it was well worth the early wake up call! In such a short window of time, I was able to capture many different angles of the grand staircase.

Rashandah + Lloyd

Summer Engagement Session at Los Colinas Canals

When I first received Rashandah’s inquiry about being her engagement photographer, she was so stinking sweet! I could tell we were going to hit it off from the very beginning – which is always one of the best feelings. Rashandah knew exactly what she was looking for in a wedding photographer. I love it when my clients has a vision and they trust me to capture the perfect moment for them.

When they both arrived, we immediately felt like old friends. We spent the evening in Los Colinas Canals photographing all of my favorite locations – and some that I had never photographed before! Their goofy and joyful love was so easy to photograph – I had a blast with them both. And they have some of the most THOUGHTFUL heart. You could clearly see the love between them and the fun they were having together.

Rashandah and Lloyd: I just love you two! Enjoy some of my favorites and know that I am counting down the days until your wedding in November YAY!

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!

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!

Jazzah & Himmat

Let's Grow Old Together

This session might be one of my favorite engagements sessions of 2018 so far. I truly feel so lucky and honored that I get to photograph the sweetest couples. Jazah and Himmat are no exception – they are the nicest and most sincere people I’ve ever met! We were able to achieve a very beautiful and romantic look with a little guidance and some fun.  I love the result of their photo and they are some of my favorites from this year!

Can this engagement session get anymore adorable?! I loved photographing Jazah and Himmat together. They are full of life and happiness!. We choose Los Colinas Canals for their engagement shoot. This is one of the popular spots for photographers to go. Jazah and Himmat made the most out of it and I was able to take various editorial style shots for them. I couldn’t be more grateful to document this special time for Jazah and Himmat. Thank you for having me!

Christian & Ashyln

A Classically Beautiful Military Wedding

When you think of elegant weddings, this is the kind of wedding you think of.  Military and navy blues, creams, golds, periwinkles and pinks all against gorgeous autumn scenery.  Lace and diamonds, all of Ashlyn's details were soft and elegant.  I loved the traditional and classic charm that their wedding had.  Christian and Ashyln's love for one another can clearly been seen and felt in all their photos.  It's always fun to see a couple get down and have a ball together at their reception, too!  

Ashyln and I hit it off right away especially when we both found out each other's love for the show Friends (I mean who doesn't quote Friends lines at least 5 times a day, right?).  I was so super excited to see that her cake topper was Friends inspired and read "You're My Lobster."  Then, as an added bonus and surprise, her brother (who performed the ceremony) started the ceremony by saying, "We are gathered here today on this joyous occasion to celebrate the special love that Ashyln and Christian share.  It is a love based on giving and receiving...as well as having and sharing.  And the love that they give and have is shared and received.  And through this having and giving...and sharing and receiving...we too can share and love and have and receive."  It may have been the greatest ceremony of all time.

The bridesmaids were elegant and classic in long, fitted black gowns.  The color scheme was black, white and blush.Their first dance was after sunset and was lit by sparklers being held by their guests surrounding them.  It was breathtaking.

Ashyln and Christian wedding was truly everything you would want it to be...beautiful, fun, elegant yet relaxed, filled with laughs and with a lot, a lot of love.  Another different thing about this wedding was that the couple wanted me to have only black & white pictures. It was a different challenge for me but I loved it. Enjoy!

Vanessa & Jason Engagement Shoot

Vanessa and Jason are proof that online dating isn’t as bad as it’s stereotype! The couple met on E-Harmony in August of 2016 and had an immediate connection! They texted back and forth for a couple of weeks and really got to know each other! Eventually, the two agreed to meet in person and as they say, the rest is history! Vanessa says, “I’m my truest self with Jason and we’re constantly laughing with each other. We’re each others best friends and we can’t wait to be just as in love 50 years from now!”

In February, the couple had a ski trip planned to go to his family’s cabin in Bend, Oregon with friends. Jason made dinner reservations for the two before his friends were suppose to arrive so they could have one meal together. They arrived too early for the reservation, so Jason took her to a dreamy bridge covered in snow were they looked at the beautiful Oregon views. Vanessa's face went stark white when Jason said, “I have something to tell you, I’ve been lying to you for the past 3 months.”  She was shocked when he told her their friends weren’t coming and then proposed! Jason had it all planned, complete with a photographer to capture the moment. Back at the restaurant, both of their families surprised Vanessa and met them to celebrate over dinner! The two spent the rest of the trip skiing and touring breweries with their families.

We’re so excited to share this beautiful Fort Worth Botanical Garden engagement session, featuring some of our favorite clients, Vanessa and Jason! Botanical Garden is the perfect backdrop for this photogenic couple! Some of our favorite shots include Vanessa and Jason’s cute Daughter and the chemistry between the two lovely couple! We love our clients and are so excited to keep designing and planning to make their dream wedding a reality!

Khadija & Shujat

Elegance and Regal are the two words that come to mind when thinking of Khadija and Shujat’s wedding. We have done several wedding ranging from Sweet and Somber to full-fledge “Dhamaka” (crazy fun-filled). Khadija and Shujat’s wedding was nothing short of Royal Elegance and Simplicity. Not only was the bride beyond gorgeous both inside and out, the groom was nothing short of a fairytale Prince. 

Sonia and I were mostly in contact with Khadijah’s family, who treated us with so much affection and respect. Becoming part of the family, being able to assist them with last minute changes, giving advice and sometimes even changing plans altogether to make the wedding more efficient allows us to build a very personal relationship with the families. Sometimes we feel like we are literally family members, which is how Khadija’s family made us feel. 

It was so much fun directing and “negotiating” poses with the bride and groom. By negotiating, I mean we had to convince the camera-shy groom to take pictures with any sort of “filmy” agenda. Needless to say, once we got the groom on board...with some help from the bride, the pictures turned out to be stunning. Have a look and let us know what you think!

Elizabeth & Tim Engagement Shoot

The season of engagement sessions is upon us and I just LOVE it!!! I had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth and Tim last week and my heart was just melting during their entire shoot. They are the SWEETEST couple and they snuggled and giggled the entire time I was shooting, whether I posed them or not!! That’s a photographers dream right there  You can see how much they love each other in every photo I took and I couldn’t be more in love with these two!!!

Elizabeth and Tim's engagement session was the first shoot of the year where we found blooming flowers!!! AH!!! The tulips here in Grapevine, TX have started to bloom and I am SO ready for spring. Elizabeth & Tim met each other at their work. Chemistry within them was so heartwarming. They were a true example of a happy, cheerful couple. Their playful love was so fun to photograph. They are so sweet and fun together…I just adore working with them! There were lots of giggles throughout this entire shoot.

Shazil's 1 Yr Shoot

Have you ever taken a picture of children? How about a baby? A one-year-old? Well, let me tell you that most one-year-olds squirm, cry, fuss, blink and a whole lot more. I know. I have 2 little girls. To get one proper picture of them takes several shots with us constantly asking them to stand straight, not to lift up their dresses, smile, but not that kind of smile, etc. etc. etc. In short, taking pictures of children is not as easy as it seems!

And then I met Shazil: the coolest, cutest, and fuss-free one-year-old. In the middle of winter, without a jacket, on the railroad tracks, this baby was all smiles. We had such a fantastic time shooting Shazil’s one-year-old pictures. With 3 locations changes and 3 outfit changes, this baby was just doing his thing and letting us do ours.

Shazil was not only such an easy baby to take photos of, he was so inquisitive and interested in the simplest things around him. Yes, like any other baby he would try to put everything in his mouth, but it was so innocent. As I was taking these pictures, I realized how simply children can entertain themselves. There is such a raw beauty in observing children and capturing a smile as a child discovers a rock or a leaf, which is just an after thought to us as adults.

So, I want to wish one-year-old Shazil, the baby who made me once again appreciate the beauty of the simplest things in nature, a very happy birthday! Thank you for allowing me to have this magnificent learning experience. Happy Birthday Prince Shazil.

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. Alina 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!
