A belated 10 on 10 for April | a wildflower field, Allen, texas photographer

This month's 10 on 10 was all set and ready to post on the 10th, but life gets busy and now it is a very belated 10 on 10.  It's spring and photographers are super busy, so I am hoping after the spring rush my other photographer friends are able to join back in.  

I just CANNOT not share this session.  It's in an amazing wildflower field.

I wanted to say thanks for this little one's mom for bringing her sweet little girl out on a warm, overcast morning to play amongst this amazing flower field.   Isn't it to die for?       I've transferred  a few of these far away amazing flowers to my backyard so hope to have my own personal flower field next year.

Green at Rock the Shot

We had an after preschool playdate with my son's best friend. 
 It was a warm November day. 
 We all did a little hike and came across this beautiful ivy forest. 
 I had my camera and a rented lens, so I asked them to take their shirts off. 
 They just get along so well, and care for each other so. I
 think they felt silly being shirtless and were laughing and being silly.
 I kept shooting and I loved this! 

 Green is this months theme at Rock The Shot - please go take a peek
 or enter your own green themed photo!

Wildflower Sessions - bluebonnets, Queen Anne's Lace, Allen Tx wildflower photographer

10 on 10 | February 2014 | Snow Bunny session and a bobcat - Allen, texas photographer

It's the 10th of the month! Do you know what that means? 10 photographers share 10 of their favorite images on the 10th of the month, so here we go!

 We had our first snowfall of 2014 here in Allen, Texas! So glad for this fellow northeastern friend who was willing to brave snowy roads and 18 degrees with her adorable little girl for a quick and easy snow session. We'd been chatting about for a while and waiting on a snowfall to get to shooting and I'm so glad we did. I just love this little session, this cutie didn't mind the cold or the snow and had fun finding my little "snow bunny".

 And I'm going to add that while I'm editing this session, I noticed something big moving outside my window, and low and behold it is this big bobcat. (you'll see the photo after the snow bunny session)  They are quite elusive, fast, and hard to spot, so the fact that he stared at me for 25 or so seconds was amazing. Possibly even more amazing was that I had my camera nearby and the settings from this little girls snow session were perfect for the bobcat as I had NO time to mess with camera settings! I only got 4 shots before he meandered on.

Lifestyle at Rock The Shot - photographer allen texas

So my "baby" is now this 6 month kitty Smokey who longs to be outside with one of his humans.

This is just a day around our house with children playing outdoors pogo sticking and a kitty wanting to go outside.  He isn't allowed outside due to the coyotes and bobcats about!
