Trick-or-Treat, Keller Texas Holiday Photography

These sweet girls made a pit-stop at my studio for some Halloween portraits before Trick-or-Treating. They looked great! I hope they have a fun night tonight and get lots of goodies!

Picture Perfect, DFW Family Photographer

Recipe for the perfect session:

Fall leaves at their peak, check! Great fall outfits, check! A breezy overcast 70 degree day, check! 3 adorable children....priceless!

Next week is the time for fall pictures people! The leaves are at their best and the weather is looking good. (those leaves will not look like that in a month....well they will but they will all be on the ground!)

Fall Leaves, DFW Family Photography

I am so in love with this baby boy. He has the cutest chubby cheeks and is always sporting a smile. And the girls were so good throughout the entire session. Such a cute fun family.

Couple Portraits, DFW Family Photographer

This couple really went the extra mile, waking up at the crack of dawn, braving the chilly morning, and tromping through swampy grass in high heel boots. (hopefully that swampy grass didn't attack their allergies like it did mine!). So glad we did all this though, pictures are always worth the work!

Extended Family Portraits, Part Two

This is the rest of the sneak peek from the extended family session I did this past weekend. I really liked this group and admired their strength and courage as a family.

For Dave Cisco.........

A couple of years ago I met a Master Photographer through a volunteer organization called "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep". His name was Dave Cisco and he was the director for our area. (The organization provides free photography to families spending their last moments with a dying baby in the hospital.)
I asked Dave if he would help me with my photography. What he said really caught me off guard. He said "Throw everything you've done up until now away and start over!" Huh? Say what? "Yep, you need to start from scratch if you want to improve". He spent an afternoon with me teaching me about light and then encouraged me to go to several schools and classes over the next year. I told him he was my OB1 or my Mr. Miyagi and I was the karate kid. It hurt my pride just a bit but in the end I think he was right. I really needed to look at light in a new way. I still have a lot to learn but I'm getting there. I used a lot of what I've learned over the past year in this session with Ciara. We have a lot we can learn from our elders and I'm grateful for one who told me to start over. Dave, you will be missed by the photographic community.

Extended Family Portraits, Part One

I have a bigger sneak peek coming soon, but in the meantime I thought I'd post a few of the couples from the extended family session.

Fall Family Portraits, DFW Family Photography

These boys were REALLY well behaved and easy to work with....even the little 2 month old baby. As long as we kept moving around he was fine. I love these first two images. The light was so pretty in this spot. The last one was their bike from home. I had to laugh when one of the boys balked at riding in the grass because his mom and dad forgot to bring his helmet. Oh to have my son trained so well. :)
