Dance Like No One Is Watching at Rock The Shot, Allen Texas Photographer

One sweet summer evening in Allen, Texas we wandered into this field to photograph this young dancer.  I knew we could capture some beautiful images of that big orange ball in in the sky dipping down to earth behind a tiny dancer.

I'd had this idea in my mind for a while, and since the field was starting to be developed, it was time to make this idea a reality.

So here is our little beauty dancing in a field like no one is watching!  More entries at Rock The Shot

Cuddling ducks at Savannah's Meadow - Allen, Tx photographer

One sunlit evening my boys and I trekked up from Allen, Texas to Savannah's Meadow  with a few of our wonderful photographer friends and their children to revisit the lavender field, and to get a quick tour of the life-size treehouse.   My boys were so excited to get to walk atop the tree and explore a house in the trees!

What surprised me most on this visit was our graceful host Gwen who gave us a wonderful tour of their farm, we met the beautiful Savannah. Savannah's meadow isn't only about the lavender and the treehouse, but there are ducks, a little pond, a canoe, beautiful walking trails, and a trampoline all available to guest who choose to stay at the treehouse.   The funnest part for the kids was feeding the ducks and being able to gently hold a duck.  I love the look below on our friend's face with her hand reaching out to touch the duck my son is holding - see below!

 It was such a wonderful evening with our children out in nature that I wish the light had not left us so soon as to hasten our trek back home.

The Treehouse at the Lavender Field | allen texas photographer

I've always wanted a treehouse.   To sleep on a starry night under in a treehouse on a cool, crisp evening -  just aaahhhhh.

My littlest and I love watching Treehouse Masters  and he was begging me for a treehouse.  (little does he know these are $70,000 tree houses, easy right?)

The best I could do was find one nearby so I did a google search and found this magical, wonderful place:

So excited that we are going to stay one night next year.  I can't wait for my boys to see it!


In the meantime, this wonderful Savannah's Meadow has two lavendar fields that have recently bloomed and they were so gracious to give me permission to borrow their field for a shoot one night.

It was my first time smelling a lavender field and the most surprising thing is the constant buzz from the bees in the lavender!   I think the bees scared the little ones and here and there a bee shows up in my photos.  Even so, the kiddos got used to it and did a fabulous job!

10 on 10 | June 2014 - Woodland Fairy - allen, tx photographers

10 photographers post their 10 favorite images on the 10th of the month

Be sure to click below my post to visit Maricruz Photography.


I had dreams of creating a woodland fairy with a sweet little girl standing in the forest in white wearing a crown and a glowing orb.   I drove past the perfect spot one day, so was in a mad rush to get this dream photographed. These dreams turned out beautiful.

We turned to the other side and the amazing setting sun just glowed through the forest.  So lovely.

(I think I'll shoot here again!)
