Bluebonnets were so good this year, although my field from last year did not bloom full, I went to a few of my previous favorite locations around the DFW area. I am still working on edits, but here are some I recently finished.
Last night I went out to meet some other photographers in my area to do a meetup and take some photos of my kiddos. I took my daughter, Jillian and my son, Jack. The Texas Tulips is a new farm of just tulips, it is a pull and buy type place. The parking is free and entrance is free, you may pick any tulip and buy for $2.50, they will wrap them up for you and put them in some gel for the ride home. My daughter had fallen asleep on the hour drive to get out there, and was very cranky but when she saw the tulips she was so excited. She loved naming all of the colors, she is 3 and also picked a few to take home. Here are a few of my favorites! The sun was very strong and there is no shade, so I really had better photos close to 7:00 pm.
I went to Clearlake two weeks ago with the family and did a few family photoshoots while I was near the coast. My boys went to space camp at the Johnson Space Center and we had a great time, we decided to stay one more night. It was a much-needs vacation with the family. I have had a pretty steady Summer, doing a lot of full sessions and newborns which I really enjoy, more time with each client to get to know them and see what fits their needs best.
We are in full sing Summer over here and we have had some dry spells but also some great sun, cooler temps and wonderful light! I am so thrilled with the new editing techniques I am learning and continue to grow and strive to be the best I can be to keep the light alive. This years’ theme has been a lot of water, lake and creeks. I am doing some truck and van themes in the next few weeks and then BEACH!!!
Mr. William and Mr. Nolan are identical, so fresh and new, that we could not tell them apart. The trick with tho scenario is to paint their nails in order to tell them apart. We couldn’t do that for the shoot, so we noticed Nolan had a “navy” bruise on his hand from a IV, so that is how we worked with these guys at their firs photoshoot. At three weeks old, they did so well and only woke up once. Big sister had fun with my animal sounds impressions.
