Looking for airplanes at an old Texas Barn , Allen texas photographer

It's almost time to wrap up my summer shooting at what has been a very popular old barn this summer season. This little one enjoyed her time sitting on my old suitcase, walking about, and be on the lookout for airplanes. Remember that time when you baby is still title but on the verge of toddlerhood, so walking and chasing are common themes. That sweet time when little ones point about at things new to their world and try to say the words. So Sweet!

A Vintage White Tufted Couch - Mini Session Maybe?

Mini session Maybe?

For the first time in a few years, I am considering holding one mini-session date with this white couch in early November in a pretty treed area.    It would just be a 15 minutes session with 4 images for your holiday cards.

This fall, take a bit of time 
cuddle with your family
on this couch of not mine
I'll capture your love,
capture your joy
you put it on a card
for your friends and family
to enjoy!

All fall sessions will need to be photographed by November 15th so we have time for card design, card printing and mailing for the holidays.


I am offering The Treelight Sessions at a special rate for clients who hold a FULL session with me this fall.   Again, for FULL session clients Fall 2015.

Thank you to my adorable models.  This dress worn by this sweet older child is mine, so we can also use that in a session if the dress fits your child!

D R E A M sweet little girl! - McKinney Texas photographer

We first met in the wildflowers in a popular Richardson park. Little did I know that evening was P R O M night!! I am so glad this couple braved the waterfall to get away from the prom crowd to capture some beautiful images of their growing baby with the waterfall behind them. And here we are now shooting their sweet little one off to D R E A M land. . . . web eliz alex brittani
intimidated . .

that is what I was . .

before . .

before my first big workshop . .

heresay is passed around and I fell for it,  I was apprehensive . .

then we met, she was down-to-earth, gave us little tidbits about many topics throughout the day

tidbits like where to stock up on glittery shoes at good prices, we talked indoor shooting, lighting, posing, styling, settings, outdoor setting, perspective, where we came from,  how to find a location in any location, and so much more.

she's now a jersey girl in birkenstocks and a long dress .  . I felt comfortable and being a jersey girl familiar

beautiful images taken by me, styled by Meg Bitton Photography.

A Castle in the Mountains - allen tx photographer

Boys, mine, a castle, Scottish heritage.

It's easy to photograph a girl in a pretty dress in any setting and have it be beautiful and magical.

 But my boys, it's not as easy with boys.

So a group of photographer friends trekked a couple of hours from Allen, Texas to a castle. I HAD to think of something different for my boys to go with a castle setting and keep it interesting for them - swords! My boys' grandmother is Scottish with a full brogue and all.   On a last minute whim I decided to sewn a kilt and sash for them, borrowed a couple of swords from a good friend and off we went.

 It was quite hot, like very hot, and the boys had a blast swimming, diving, sliding, sword fights, fireside s'mores. It was a lovely way to kick off the summer!

And here is a little video story about the castle:

We almost made it Scotland this summer, almost . . . so we decided to recreate what we might have seen there right in this beautiful old castle.

Savannah's Meadow Lavendar Farm Mini Sessions - Eliz Alex Photography

One sunlit evening last summer my boys and I trekked up from Allen, Texas to Savannah's Meadow. We are so excited to visit the farm again this summer - not only is there a wonderful lavender field, but walking trails, a pond, a canoe, ducks to feed and hold, a treehouse,  maybe some fireflies, oh and my older son's "girlfriend". It's an awesome summertime adventure out in nature in the country.   Did you know they also have a treehouse that you can book for the night and sleep in? Coming up this fall you'll be able to see one of their treehouse builds on The Treehouse Guys.

This year, I'd love it if you'd come join me by booking a summer session on June 20th or June 27th. Please take a look at the wonderful slide show to see some of my images from last summer.
 Just message me for more details -


Last summer's blog post by me for  Savannah's Meadow 2014

And if you are a photographer, and would like to hold your own mini session on the farm, you can do so. It must be held on the dates specified by Savannah's Meadow as the meadow is also their home and they do need some summer evenings to themselves. The price to Savannah's Meadow is $50 per photographer.  Please be sure to mention you read about this on Eliz Alex Photography.
