Maternity : Ann : Flower Mound

Ann and Mark are the happiest expectant couple I have ever had the privilege of photographing! These two are going to be the best parents to their little girl due at the end of August! Ann has been blogging her whole pregnancy - you can read up on it here -

This gorgeous mama ROCKED her maternity session! I was thrilled with how it turned out despite the heat! (Texas summers....ugh!) This field was PERFECT and I want to photograph out there more and more!

Engagements : Jeremy & Denisa : Deep Ellum Dallas

As soon as these two stepped out of the car to meet me at our first location, I could tell they were nervous! You wouldn't know it at all looking at their portraits and they were a dream to photograph, but it was so sweet to see that they were so hopeful and trusting that I would take care of them and make them look good! I had an amazing time with these two. We laughed a lot and I about lost it when Denisa actually went along with my joke that she should pick Jeremy up after he had picked her up! Haha! 

Congratulations you two and I wish you many blessings in your future together as Mr. and Mrs.!

"We had a blast, Alison! Thanks so much for making us feel so at ease and for making the photo shoot fun. It was a real pleasure meeting you!" - Denisa

Proposal : Ross & Lauren : Fort Worth Water Gardens

Lauren said yes! 
I could not be happier for these two lovebirds. I've known Lauren since college, taught her how to swing dance, and while she has always been a bubbly soul, I've never seen her happier than she has been since Ross came into her life. 
A week before their third anniversary dating, Ross emailed me to as me if I would be there to photograph him proposing to Lauren. I screamed! Of course! I was so excited! Apparently he had the whole thing planned out and besides the parents, I was the only other person who knew what was going to happen. Lauren had no idea!
I arrived early, scoped out my secret-hide-out-in-the-open spot, donned my sunglasses and ballcap (I never wear these two things...) and waited patiently. As soon as Ross was in position, I called his cell to give him the OK and he dropped his knee! Woohoo! Ohmygoodness I was shaking with excitement! The backdrop couldn't have been prettier either. 

Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. McGarrah!

 Ross was trying to nonchalantly look for me....
You're in a good spot, Ross, you can ask whenever you're ready! *this is when I called his phone.
 And this is when Lauren realized it was Me! So surprised.
