Light up the Night - This girl! - Allen, Texas Photographer

I met this  Lovejoy high school beauty in Allen Texas last week.  She reviewed my online portfolio and requested a night shot in her senior photos collection - it required me to think about good night spot then I remembered the carnival coming to town!  Yippee!   She and her family met me there while I was out carnivaling with my own family.  It was a first for me to try but, "Oh that Light Bokeh!"  We met again for an downtown session and she is so easy to photograph!  Just a lovely girl!

Night at the Carnival - Allen Texas Photographer

This beautiful young lady met me out at the carnival for some fun senior night shots. She saw a night shot in my portfolio from a while back and specifically requested a night shoot, and knowing we had a carnival right here in Allen, Texas, I asked if they'd meet me. So happy for their fun spirit.   It's something I've wanted to do since every year we've attended the carnival.  I do hope my light trigger works better next time I can get a few of my own children set against all the bright carnival lights.

Isn't she just gorgeous!! We will meet again soon for the day shots.






 
Just a little peek into my Fall Family sessions. Currently, I am waiting on my boy's soccer schedule for their Allen, Texas games, then will be publishing info about Fall Family sessions! Take a peek and stay tuned!

Go Pro made it down to Mexico - The Woodlands, TX Photographer

A longish weekend  down in Mexico with my family to kick off the summer was wonderful.  We relaxed, swam, read, slept, ate, kayaked, hobie catted, snorkeled, ordered "dirty monkeys' from the pool bar,  and along came my new go pro hero silver.

We did have a hiccup or two as my oldest son came down with a fever and cough for four days. Thankfully I had plenty of advil and rest time for him.  It seems I forgot to check the kids travel kit for a thermometer.   Off to the giftshop we go to buy one  - an old style one  - yep with the mercury.  Then my son who is used to plastic ended thermometer proceeds to "lightly" gnaw down on it and break the thermometer - in his mouth!   This caused a few stressful moments, or hour.  

We weren't able to get into our room until 4:00 pm after a 9:30 am 2 hour flight to Mexico.  Next time pack swimsuits in the carryon and just go swim while you wait for your room to be ready.  Oh and bring an American thermometer!

All in all, we had lovely family time.  The best part for me as a scuba diver,  was to take my family snorkeling and let them experience the coral reef, and beautiful tropical fishes.

See a bit of our VACA here,  all filmed and shot with the Go Pro:





 

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!"
