Shanna & Vivi


Shanna & I have been mommy and photog friends for a few years now. Early this year I met her beautiful new daughter, Vivi in this field at sunset for some gorgeous breastfeeding newborn images. This weekend I got to meet with her again at sunrise in the same field to celebrate her (almost) one year birthday.

The confidence that Shanna shows in these images isn't a front. Watching her grow as a woman, mother, photographer and friend has been an absolute blessing. Happy Birthday, Sweet Viv.

Mama's Boy

Shannon is an incredible make up artist and repeat client of mine who ALWAYS brings the giggles and the gorgeous.She visited me during my last trip to Fort Worth with her "Little Monkey" to celebrate the continued breastfeeding relationship she has with him.

I loved shooting in Michelle Monk's adorable little studio (PER-FECT for mini sessions!) with her and her son. He is such a firecracker and she is so sweet with him. She brought a skirt her grandmother made for her that was totally perfect in this all white space.

From Shannon:

"I'm a mommy on a mission to nurse my son "as long as I'll make it and he'll take it"...2.5 years later, we're going strong!  I have chosen Mae twice to capture moments in our nursing experience and treasure every image."

I'm so looking forward to meeting more nursing mamas during my last trip to Fort Worth on November 23. Contact me via the form above or at for more info.


Janae & Babe at Home

Upon hearing that I was coming to Fort Worth, this mama contacting me saying she would love for me to photograph her and her sweet girl in their nursery. She said "It's all white and people tell me all the time that I should have pictures done in it."

Uhm. Hello. WHY no other photographer has taken her up on this before?! I'll never know.

From Janae: "MAE! Thank you so much for doing our pictures. They're what I have always wanted and dreamed of. Nursing my sweet baby in an all white nursery, like a little slice of heaven. Breastfeeding is flying by and I know it won't last forever (at least I hope not) so as I get up over and over in the night, I just gotta say "LORDDD GIVE ME PATIENCE PUHLEASEEEEEEE". Then as Ive been sitting up there the past couple weeks, I can't help but think how much of a bond we've formed through this. Breastfeeding is a blessing and I'm grateful it's been an easy journey for us, because I know it's not the case always. I'm so excited to have these photographs to cherish these soon to be memories of the countless hours spent giving my babe her "delicious treat". You are one gifted mama! The Lord will use you to touch people with your talent. "
