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 - elizabeth@elizalexphotography.com

 


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.

Saving a seat . . . pregnancy announcement! - photographer Allen Texas.

Just two cute city kids biking along, but oh look -  there's one extra trike.    I think they are pretty happy about it!    So excited to be a part of this family's pregnancy announcement - enjoy your pregnancy mama.

 (we've had 18 of our last 24 days had rain here in Allen, Texas, so fields are muddy messes and flower fields disappeared in all the rains we've been having, so off to the city streets we went for this shoot)

The Wildflower Sessions Wrap Up - allen texas photographer

The Wildflower Sessions 2015 are just about wrapping up, so what better a time to share some of my favorite images over this spring season.   It's been a wet one for sure, and we've had lots of new fields pop up.   Just so ya'll know, we not only have bluebonnets in Texas - we have grape hyacinth, bluebonnets, yellow wildflowers, red poppies, queen anne's lace and more.  In fact, I've yet to identifying my yellow wildflower field.  Each year is a treat and we never know what will grow!

Thanks to all of you who enjoyed a bit of getting outdoors in nature, breathing fresh air,  to have fun, and explore this beautiful earth and all the beauty it brings us.

Have a wonderful summer!

Oh lots of Daisy flowers little one! - allen, texas photographer

It was so wonderful so see her pretty smiles on this day. As the last time I saw her and her family on a cool sunrise morning at the tulip field, she wasn't not the happiest little camper in the flowers.

This time, it was warmer and it was just her and - oh my - L.O.V.E.

 She even got to test our her brother's new-to-him Radio Flyer trike in a field of Daisies.
