I am an on-location, natural light photographer based in Dallas, Texas. My style is based on beautiful light, pastels, and intimate connections. My goal is to beautifully capture the most precious moments in your life in a way that you will cherish for many years to come. I can't wait to get to know you!
As a photographer and busy mom of three, I know how hard it can be to get your Christmas shopping done on time. Bringing kids to the store, keeping them quiet and entertained while you make important buying decisions—these are no small feats! And if you try to do all your shopping when the kids are in bed or over the weekend, you risk feeling rushed and overwhelmed by all the crowds. I’m all about gifts that come from the heart even if I bought them a little last minute or ordered them online.
Here is my list of easy, meaningful holiday gifts to finish off your shopping this year:
Dallas Photography Gift Certificate
Is there anything grandparents love more than photos of their sweet grandbabies? This year, gift them a lifestyle photography session in DFW at my Dallas studio or a location of their choice! They will cherish the opportunity to spend time snuggling grandkids during a laid back photoshoot. Then, they can enjoy a beautiful gallery for years to come. Contact me about gifting a portrait, mini, or partial session!
Cooking Class at Eataly NorthPark
Is there someone on your list who loves to cook or craves all things Italian? Then a cooking class at Eataly in Dallas is the perfect gift for them! From pasta and pizza making to artisan baking lessons, Eataly offers gourmet cuisine classes for the food-lover in your life.
Massage or Spa Experience
The perfect gift for a friend, spouse, or sibling, a massage or spa day is a wonderful way to show someone how much you appreciate them! Treat yourself by making it a couple’s massage, or book an experience at Spa Castle in Carrollton, TX, with traditional Asian saunas and a bathing house.
Escape Room or Virtual Reality Experience
Looking for a gift for the whole family? Escape the Room in Dallas and Fort-Worth offers thrilling escape room experiences that are fun for all ages. If your family isn’t into riddles and puzzles, a virtual reality experience like those at Dreamscape at AMC NorthPark Center can also be a great bonding opportunity. These immersive VR experiences allow you to choose different adventures to share as a family.
You’ve heard of gift boxes for food and alcohol, but have you heard of tea gift boxes? Tea is such a cozy drink for the winter months, and gifting an assortment of flavors can brighten anyone’s day! Tea Forte offers gorgeously packaged gift sets with a wide array of flavors or Tea Drops offers unique, dissolving teas with Boba options!
I hope this list gives you a few ideas for uncommon but thoughtful Christmas gifts, even if they are last minute! Now that I’ve finished editing my clients’ gorgeous Christmas mini-sessions, I’m looking forward to diving into my holiday shopping!
