Lakeside Park | Tania & Harley

August 28, 2019

Filed in: Lifestyle, Senior

When we first moved to Dallas, we were desperate for a baby sitter. Running a business, moving homes, switching schools, pent up kids… need I say more? A friend at HPUMC told me to post on a job board for SMU students, and this is when the universe was kind enough to bring Tania into my life! I love this girl. I came home from our first meeting absolutely thrilled that I had found someone I felt I could connect with and be myself around. My first Dallas friend! We met at my favorite hang out spot, San Martin Cafe, and ended up talking business instead of babysitting when I saw she was a design grad who might enjoy a peek into my world of photography. I love spending time with this girl because she isn’t afraid of life and inspires me to be my best self! In the short time I’ve known her, she’s tackled intimidating life events with grace and passion. Tania has an absolutely adorable pup-child named Harley who loves the camera, as you’ll see below!

I’ve been dying to take portraits around our new neighborhood, so Tania & Harley made great subjects for a casual session at Lakeside & Davis Park. This park is on my new list of AGP approved shooting locations!

Here’s from Tania:

What’s your definition of joy?  
A quiet Saturday morning — a good book in hand, with Harley by my side and a nice cup of Bird Rock coffee
