Vol XI – Friends

{ Dallas Child Photography | Dallas Family Photography | Dallas Lifestyle Photographer }

Hello all!  Here I am again, back for another installment in my ongoing series of personal projects, featuring child photography and family photography from the year 2014, in Dallas and Michigan (and elsewhere) and I traveled around and captured the magic of the moments in the places where I landed.  This post, however, is also going to be featuring a beautiful Fall family session, since the children I photographed in the “play date” pictures were also the children photographed in the family session later on in the year!  Their mom is another talented photographer, and we took the opportunity to shoot together whenever we could, even when pouring-down rainstorms taunted us.  We waited out the rainstorms, and were rewarded with gorgeous twinkly light and beautiful rainbows to match the dresses of dancing children.

In the Fall, the whole family got together for their family photography session, and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more.  I just love this family so much, and it is always such a joy to spend time with them.  It’s only too bad I moved to Dallas so soon after THEY moved to Michigan!  Come on down to Texas!!

Vol XI Dog Days

{ Dallas Family Photography| Frisco Child Photographer | Euless Child Photographer }

Welcome back to another edition (15 already!!) of my personal series of pictures from 2014! In a couple of weeks I will have a LOT of blog posts featuring all my family photography from 2014 to show you, I promise!

Into the VERY HOT days of July in Dallas, Texas, my first dripping-hot taste of Summer in the deep South…and I loved it <3.  Hot doesn’t scare me.  Huge yellow locusts, maybe a little.  Cicadas that sound like heavy machinery…that takes some getting-used-to.  The threat of poisonous snakes and scorpions and red ants, maybe not so much.  But, hot, nah, hot is part of Summer.

Summer is -

Big scary looking yellow things.

Fireworks from the backyard, with cold drinks in the cooler, and something home-made and patriotic in the kitchen.

Volume XIV – Flower Power

Here I am again, with another post featuring my own child photography from 2014, featuring some of my favorite subjects to photograph, my children (of course) and some really good friends, the children of my friend Jamie of Gingersnapography.  I have often photographed my daughter and hers together, and it thrills me always…it’s one of the hard parts about being so far away from them now.  My 8-year-old son and her son are also close in age, and though they be but little, don’t let their diminutive size fool you, they are both pure muscle.  :-)

We traipsed out to a little patch of land in Ann Arbor for this photography shoot, and while rain was constantly threatening to ruin our little play date, we showed them who was boss and managed a lovely time anyway.

Jamie Galloway - <3 We miss you all so much!

Something a little different

I’m taking a break from my series posting my personal family and child photography from 2014, to share with you a little jaunt I took to the Dallas Arboretum, to spend some time with a fun little lens, the Lensbaby Composer with the “Sweet 35″ optic.  It’s an art lens, and the area of focus is intentionally extremely shallow, so it is fun to experiment with something a little outside of the norm once in a while.

I had the opportunity to join up with some other amazingly talented women for a little blog circle, sharing our Lensbaby images on the 20th of every month.  It’s a good reason to make sure I dust this little treasure off and see what it can do, a little more often!

Make sure to go visit Rachel Nielsen’s  breathtaking work next (and all the blogs in the circle following), you will NOT be sorry!

Vol XIII Beach Days

And…I’m back!  Here I am again with a blast from the past – our first vacation to the Texas shore (and our first experience with the Texas sunburn, OUCH!).  I showed a few of these images in one of my previous blog posts, but there’s no harm in repetition.
