Tengberg Maternity Session - Dallas, TX

Brady and Mary Tengberg are not only the most amazing people, but they're also some of my closest friends... AND they have a dog named Moose. 


Meet Moose


The cutest, sweetest lil guy ever!

Nick and I met Brady and Mary our senior year at BYU while Nick was recruiting for a management consulting firm that Brady had summered and signed a return offer for. They generously took us out to dinner to get to know us because that's what you do when you're recruiting for management consulting! As we were leaving the dinner I turned to Nick and said, "I DEFINITELY could be best friends with Mary!" and that was it! We were friends. 

So when Mary asked me to take her maternity photos I quite literally SQUEALED in delight! She wanted to split her session into two parts: homey lifestyle & colorful outdoor.

I had THE most fun at this session! I realized how important it is to have a good dynamic with the people I'm photographing and working with! If I can't have fun then my clients won't have fun and then those happy, candid photos that I love so much won't ever happen because everyone's grumpy, nervous, or uncomfortable. So I'm learning to focus on my interactions with people and create RELATIONSHIPS. Because that's what really matters at the end of the day! If I could have all of my clients be my good friends, then life will be AMAZING! 

XOXO meli
