I met Dave & Courtney several years ago – I’ve lost count of how many – and immediately started praying for a baby!

It’ s been emotional. It’s been a long time waiting. Now – they’re little one is due SOON!!

These might be the BEST cupcakes I’ve EVER had in my life!!

BARDEN PHOTOGRAPHY – BEAUTIFUL

In 2010 – I started a a new program: BEAUTIFUL!!

I quit my job as a secretary to pursue photography FULL-TIME in 2009!

During 2009 & 2010 – photography was certainly my FULL-TIME business!!

Then Fitzy was born in 2011 & Enoch in 2013 and raising babies became my FULL-TIME business and photography took a little bit of a back seat.

The boys are older now and I feel like I won’t be missing out on ALL the things by diving back into photography on a more full-time basis!

2020 was a CRAZY year BUT I did get to photograph SO MANY OF YOU!!

I am hoping I get to see even more beautiful faces & help tell more beautiful stories this year!!

Email me @ dcbarden@gmail.com – write a paragraph or two about a family you know that deserves a FREE photo session.

Here are the rules:

1. You MUST EMAIL me. NO FACEBOOK MESSAGES!! NO INSTAGRAM DIRECT MESSAGES!!

2. You can NOT submit your own family!!

3. Generally – the session takes place in/around Mansfield!

4. The session is for an immediate family. For example: I CAN submit my brother & his wife & their two kids but NOT my parents & my brother & his family & my sister & her family & the four of us.

5. In order to give a session away I need 10 submissions by April 15th!!

I will be choosing from the entries and announce the winners at the end of that week!!

Make sure to tell me WHAT MAKES THEIR FAMILY BEAUTIFUL.

HINT: Don’t be afraid to write too much!

I can’t wait to read your submissions!

GAH!!! SO CUTE!

I ADORE THAT SHOT!!

ADORABLE!

Hannah had asked me how I felt about a snow-baby shoot!!

The day we scheduled was COLD – so we watched the weather and rescheduled for a mild February afternoon!

It started to rain when I pulled in their driveway and then it stopped JUST IN TIME!

The sweetest little girl!!

Sierra recently learned to play the piano – so I grabbed a few shots – and they’re my FAVORITE!!

I ADORE those shots!!

Jose had REALLY wanted snowy photos – BUT – the cold is AWFUL!!

Thankfully it was mild enough that we could grab a few shots outside!!

Sierra & Jose – I am SO thankful for you in our lives!!

The pictures on their wall are pictures I took last summer. A picture of a picture.

It warms my heart to walk into people’s homes and see the photos I took on their walls!

I absolutely ADORE that shot!! The reflections – his little fingers on that game piece – the concentration – EVERYTHING!

I love that shot too! Sierra is SO gorgeous – and look at the way Jose is looking at her!

Max – he was NOT ready for a close-up!

Felicia – she wasn’t ready either!!

They spend their Friday nights watching a movie together – so we recreated that for the afternoon!

ONE MORE POST!

Sierra & Jose are some of our best friends. I’ve been taking their family photos for the past 6 years – I think!

This year we talked about a session in the fall but our schedules were CRAZY!

Sierra had mentioned that she wanted some in-home photos of their family doing what they love!

I LOVE this session!! I’ve got LOTS more to show you so stay tuned!!
