Fall Announcement

Are we really talking about fall?

It feels like we were just counting down for summer. What. Happened.

Well life mostly, and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way! I’m going to miss sleeping in (which is 7:30 around here) and long days spent with absolutely NOTHING on the agenda. Sadly, that is soooooooo over. We are gearing up for a new school year and one major change: I am going back to teaching. I get to teach ESL Kindergarten at Anne Frank Elementary. I’m nervous, excited, and in full OCD planning mode.

The decision for me to step back into the classroom has been a long time coming. My lovely, supportive, dedicated, incredibly intelligent husband has always dreamed of starting his own company and I’m excited to say that he has officially opened CDMX Technologies, an innovative security solutions company. We’re living out the things we dreamed of when we started life together ten years ago! Three kids, two businesses, and one bustling classroom mean a whole-lotta responsibilities.

With that being said, my plate is FULL.

I’ve been asked over and over if I will be stepping away from my photography business. It has been so fulfilling and I have loved every minute of it! So much so, that on top of everything we have on our plates, I’ve decided to head into my busy season head on, super mom/wife/teacher/photographer style.

Honestly, I know there’s no such thing as perfection, but there is such thing as balance and self-care. To preserve the time I get to spend with my family, I will only be booking a limited amount of sessions this fall. To preserve myself, I will allow myself a night off as needed, and have those Trader Joe’s almond butter cups whenever necessary.

I will do my best to accommodate everyone, but these sessions I’m offering are first come first serve. I will be offering 10% off for returning clients as a big THANK YOU for your continued business year in and year out! (Offer ends Sept. 1)

I hope you enjoy a peek at my favorite summer session!

Thank you!

xx,
Adia

Olivia’s Miracle

One year ago today, I photographed the birth of Olivia Renee Solis. Her entrance into this world was incredibly beautiful and moving. Everything was simple.

A few days after her birth, her parents were hit with the devastating news that Olivia had a heart condition that had gone undetected. Olivia would have to fight for her life, and fight she did. She endured countless operations, including a heart transplant and went through many highs and lows. It was such an honor to be able to capture their story along the way, but mostly it was amazing to watch our very real God move in the lives of this family.

We talked about the day that we would take her one year photos, it seemed so impossible then. I am so happy to share these photos of the beautiful, lively and thriving girl who beat all of the odds and her incredible parents that helped her every step of the way!

I’m sharing some of Olivia’s birth and journey too, I hope you enjoy scrolling through!

Chris + Sara

I’m sharing this session in honor of Valentine’s Day and all of the love associated with it! Even though running after wild and free two year olds is kind of my thing, I still really enjoy being one-on-one with a couple. Sara and Chris were perfection on this sun filled Texas day. I worked with Sara to style our session and I’m so happy with the way they turned out. I definitely get a Sunday-kind-of-love feeling when I look at this session!

In family sessions, I always pull parents aside for a quick picture alone. Most of the time we laugh about the fact that the last portrait they’ve had was either their engagement pictures or their wedding pictures. We quickly move on to the rest of our session but I enjoy capturing the warm embraces, laugh wrinkles and scrunchy nose laughs that come with years of going through life with your best friend.

I will be opening four session slots on February 9th for children, families and couples. These sessions will be held at an outdoor location here in the DFW. You can find more information below. Sessions are first come, first serve. If you’re interested, you can DM me or email me at info@adiarenee.com. I’d love to answer any questions you may have!

I hope you enjoy scrolling through,

xo,

Jonah and Amelia

I met Elizabeth and Justin for their maternity session back in May, I was so happy to photograph their love for each other and the babies they were soon to meet. At that time they didn’t know their names, or what they would look like but they knew their entire life was about to change.

Just a few weeks later, I received the text that the babies had arrived! I was incredibly excited because they would be my first twin newborn session. I bounced over to their home with Emily (Emily is my best friend and photography hand, the absolute best) and Elizabeth opened the door with a baby in each arm, Jonah and Emilia. We quickly looked around, found the best light and set up!

We started with the babies first so that mom could take a second to finish getting ready. Wrapping them was an absolute dream, they were perfect in every sense of the word. The way they embraced each other just painted a picture of what they must have looked like in the womb. Every detail was essential and I found myself saying “just one more…” until everyone laughed at me for lying to myself. My favorite thing about this session was seeing Elizabeth and Justin step into their roles as mom and dad, and capturing the whole family together.

I love this session and I hope you do too!
