Rocking the Fourth - Allen Texas Photography

Rockin' out for the FOURTH! Found these cool flag glasses at Target in Allen, Texas months ago, so saved them for a special shoot and they so matched this fun flower field I've been shooting in for year. Time to wear them again this week! web 4th Flowers Storyboard

A peek inside . . . one of my wildflower sessions . . - Allen Texas Photographer

Just a peek inside one of my wildflower sessions so you can see the sweet children having some fun, some smiles, and some sillies while we are together. This is just a quick snippet of the session, as I usually have along "bag of tricks" like my piggie, (also known as Walter), my "tickle' owl, some bubbles and maybe a special treat or two. My bag of tricks didn't make an appearance in this session! Guess this comes from working for a toy company for many years, our old logo tagline was, "Where FUN Lives!"


Kayaking adventures - Allen Texas Photographer

It's your 10th birthday. We go there so fast. It's your first time kayaking your own boat. Your daddy and I met kayaking. Before we moved from the Woodlands we took you and your brother in a double kayak on the lake. Of course, I took photos to remember the adventure yet my camera slipped into the water never to be seen. I've been waiting 1 year to take you kayaking at LLEWA - last year there was so so so much rain all water events were cancelled. It is for you and your brother and our family for which all this photography business begin, so it should be that I will share some images of our adventures once in a while. web Eliz Alex Bday kayak

Thank you for these sweet Clients - allen texas photographer

I'm so honored for these clients to have me, an Allen, Texas photographer, photograph their maternity session 1 year ago , then their sweet baby's newborn session, fall family photos and soon her official 1st birthday photos. It really is a treasure to have them come back to me, especially when there are so many photography choices out there in the world today. As a THANK YOU to them I gifted our latest session just to capture their not-quite-yet 1 year old in the same flower field where we photographed their maternity session over a year ago. These are the things I don't announce but do like to offer clients who come back to me and recommend me, it is one of the perks of being loyal. It's my way of Thanking them for being them. THANK YOU - you know who you are! Eliz Alex F Four  8 x 10

In the Secret Garden with her bunny - allen texas photographer

A lovely little lady came to visit me in Allen Texas at my secret garden.  She went in and out of the garden, swung on the garden gate, took a little spill but protected and took such good care of her sweet soft bunny.

Take 2! - Mckinney Texas Photographer

We met in a pretty field near Allen, Texas.  It was a gorgeous sunlit field of little white and tall yellow flowers. And when I arrived, it was mowed.  . . gone. nothing.  . .  just green grass.  I had borrowed my neighbor's fabulous lens,  the 70 - 200L  (thank you Paula!).     It was a comparison really for me as I photographed this girl in that field last year with my 200L lens, and I wanted to see how my 200L images compared to shooting with the 70 - 200L.  In my heart I knew I would not get the images I'd had already set in my mind, but I shot anyway.     This sweet girl loved exploring my bags of goodies to see what else she could play with while I photographed her.

Two night later I saw another similar field and asked if they'd meet me a second time,   and YES they said YES!.  These are those images - a beautiful sunlit field of tall yellow grasses shot with my 135 and my 200.    No borrowed lens though - still trying to decide on that investment.

Secret Garden, long lost love - Allen Texas photographer

My English "grandmother" brought me many gifts, and one I remember well is the book - The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It might be time I should read it once again. So surprisingly this beautiful Indian Hawthorne shrub plant in my yard, here in Allen, Texas, bloomed so many beautiful pink flowers this spring. Many pink flowers . . . in my yerd. . . in my side yard right here in Allen, Texas! vv We arrived home late on evening and I thought wow that looks like a secret garden entrance, snapped a quick iPhone pic and posted it to social media. Many people commented on it's natural beauty. So ding, ding, ding let's do some shoots here. I must say how lovely it is to step outside your door and start shooting!!
