In case you are new here :)

Quite a few of you have mentioned recently that you are new to the blog!  So, I just wanted to say a big “Hey, y’all!” to my new friends, and “Thanks for coming back!” to my old friends!  Here’s a little re-introduction in case you were curious about the girl behind the scenes!  Here we go!

Hey, y’all!  My name is Narci, and this is my little piece of the Internet!


I am a mama and Dallas-based family and newborn photographer.  My husband and I have three precious kids and a tiny little puppy named Dixie who has a penchant for mischief.  😉


I am a Texas girl, born and raised, which means that I say things like “y’all and fixin’ to” and Siri doesn’t always understand me when I ask her something.  😉  I am partial to sweet tea, SEC football (Hotty Toddy!), monograms, and big porches with rocking chairs. 🙂

Robert and I met after college.


He grew up in a small town in Michigan, and loves the outdoors and his family.  After we got engaged, my parents’ recommended that we forego the traditional wedding, so we hopped on a plane and were married in Las Vegas by Merlin the Magician.   (True story!)   Robert works in engineering, and is easy going, hardworking, and the kind of guy who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty.  He’s real, true to his word, honest and I love him to pieces.   These days, we do exciting things like binge watch on Netflix and  catch sunsets on our back porch.


We have 3 children: Jackson (13), Luke (8), and Presley (7) and being their mama is  such a joy to me!

I am so thankful for our story, and I credit it all to the grace of God and his redemptive love for us all!  When Jackson was 9 months old, we were in a car accident that we probably shouldn’t have walked away from.  The force of the collision totaled the car, landed me in the hospital, and had my entire left arm in bandages for weeks.

Two months later, I was saved by the transforming power of Christ, and I like to think that accident opened my eyes to where I might spend eternity when my time really did come.  If you want to read about my faith journey, you can find my testimony here.

In between our boys, we experienced 4 years of secondary infertility.  Luke was born 5 years and 5 days after Jackson, and we were thrilled and shocked to find out that we were pregnant with Presley (naturally) exactly 7 months after Luke was born. God is so good!


Our little family loves Tex Mex, anything competitive, and movie night cuddles in mom and dad’s bed. Our happy place is the beach…we are noisy, imperfect, and love each other BIG.  I’d love for you to stay awhile!

To find me on Instagram, you can go here, Grace and Love Blog Facebook here, or  visit my photography facebook page here.  And as always, you can email me at if you have any questions or want to chat.  Have an amazing day!

    I’ve been following all you McKinney girls for years and feel like any of you could be my best friends (or my daughters, I’m old enough to be your mother). I love the way you share real life, pictures, struggles and joys, clothes and recipes and through it all, you always point your readers to Jesus. Hey Shay, Sheaffer and Erica!


I love to hear from you! Leave a comment here! :) XO Narci
