Milestone for Macie: Dallas Senior Portraits

Macie is graduating from high school (a whole year early)!

I've been taking photos of this beautiful family for the better part of a decade now! Over those years, our connection has turned into a full fledged friendship, and I get super excited whenever it's official photo shoot time. While chatting on the phone just a couple of weeks ago, Lindsey (Macie's momma) asked me to visit Texas to take Macie's senior portraits and of course, I booked my ticket the next day. I hadn't planned on leaving Boulder for the rest of the summer, but there are certain trips I cannot resist!

We adventured in the late-July heat of Texas and shot in downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum, and ended for golden hour in Arlington at a park where many of my Dallas portraits have been taken over the years. This visit showed me more of the city than I've ever experienced in all my time spent in the area. Admittedly, I never knew this town was full of amazing street art. There's so much to explore and learn. 😃

And Noah Makes Five: NYC Family Portraits

Ashley, Chris (and Ruby) were my first official clients after announcing Melanie Rose Photography as a full-time project in Spring 2010.

Early on, we started with a maternity session, and that led to me documenting Ruby's entire first year (she was actually my first "First Year" baby).

As the story went, Dylan's upcoming arrival was announced as I wrapped up Ruby's first year, and I happily accepted the invitation to photograph his 12 month milestones. I even took a family trip with the foursome to celebrate Thanksgiving in Texas shortly before moving to San Diego. My first experience of clients turned sweet, caring friends. ❤️

I have had the pleasure of staying in close touch with Ashley through the power of social media, and have visited (and photographed!) her family in Texas. It was with much excitement and honor that 7 and a half years after our first shoot, I had another opportunity to capture some memories during a family mini-session while visiting from Boulder. This time with a third baby joining the crew!

The newest member Noah (now 6 months old) is a joyful, happy soul and it was precious to watch Ruby and Dylan tend to and play with him.

Here's the story of our reunion playdate last weekend. :)
