How gorgeous are these girls?

I've known Amber + her girls for many, many years. In fact, back in 2012 - her girls were some of my first 'models' for the 'photography business' I had hoped to grow. Of course, life got in the way & I never really jumped in until a few years later (2015). When she asked me to do a mother's day mini for her + girls, of COURSE I wouldn't pass it up! I honestly can't believe how much the girls have grown over the years - or how gorgeous they are! Someone's gonna have their hands full when they get to dating age ;)

I met these two cuties when their mom scheduled a session with me last summer! They are just a ton of fun to follow around. They bring tons of laughter and smiles to those around them. I just love their whole family and I was so excited that she got with me again to do these precious pictures for Mother's Day! I love watching kids grow and change over the years - and I hope to see these two grow as well! <3

I decided to do some last minute mother's day minis this year, and these beautiful women met up with me a few weeks ago for their mini! They were a blast to work with and I'm pretty certain that I laughed until I cried. This momma and her daughters are absolutely gorgeous and total sweethearts! More photos below:

aren't they gorgeous? 

I got to meet up with this beautiful couple back in August for their free police mini. They weren't able to be in town for us to do it during July, so I made an exception and pushed it to August because I just truly appreciate what Officer Broach does. I'm thankful I did. This couple is so sweet together and I truly enjoyed getting to meet them and do this for them. We had lots of laughs and tried to make the best of the hot summer evening. I just have so much love for fellow LEO families. ♥

Thank you for doing what you do, Officer Broach!

Have you thanked a law enforcement officer today?

Behind every strong police officer, 

there is an even stronger family who stands behind them and supports them. ♥

I also got to meet up with the sweet Flynn family for their police mini back in July. I had so much fun - even though it was so hot that day and the bugs were so frustrating. It went well, though!

And, isn't their little girl just gorgeous?! She's seriously a doll baby, even though she wasn't very interested in posing for photos. I'm a little partial to the blonde hair as well. :) lol 

If you didn't read the Klein Family blog before this, you may not realize that doing this is a special way for me to give back to my fellow LEO families near me. My dad is an officer in Texas and I have the utmost respect and love for law enforcement officers. I understand the job they do and I know the situations they come across daily. I provide LEO families a free mini session every July, but I also provide LEO families a discount on many other sessions. To learn more about this, go HERE

Thank you for doing what you do, Officer Flynn!

♥ blessed are the peacemakers.... 

If you know me, you know that my dad is a law enforcement officer in my hometown in North-East Texas. Last year, when the 5 officers were taken from us by hate in Dallas - you can imagine that it hit WAY too close to home for me. These officers didn't get to go home to their families that night, and that weighed so heavily on me & other LEO families. 

One photographer came up with the idea to do #freephotosforpolicefamilies, and of course - I jumped on board! Every year in July, to not only honor those 5 officers that lost their lives in Texas last year - but also to show my love and respect to all my fellow LEO families around me, Shanna True Photography © will be providing local law enforcement families the opportunity to get some updated photos for FREE. I also offer discounted prices for LEO families the remainder of the year. 

You can learn more about all of this HERE

This year, I had several families jump at this opportunity! The first of those sweet families was the wonderful Klein's. I had the privilege of meeting this sweet LEO family and capturing a few new photos for them. Aren't they beautiful? I promise, they're as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. I had so much fun doing this for them & I'm so thankful for his service to our small town. 

I look forward to hopefully meeting more LEO families next year!

Thank you for doing what you do

Just how cute is my little nephew?

Yeah.. we may be a little partial.... but, he seriously is just too cute for words. We decided to do some quick Easter photos with Silas... and my sweet pup decided to join in for a few of them. ;)

We seriously just love these two:

and of course, a few more photos of Si... 

P.S. I may or may not have had to bribe him with a small candy offer in order to get him to sit still and model with 4 different outfits for us! After an hour, he had had enough. He said he "needed a break!" But, he did AWESOME. He's the real MVP. ;)  Haha! 

Have I mentioned.. I love this kid.
