Through the Lensbaby: March

Welcome back to my second blog circle post, where a group of us posts images taken with our Lensbaby lenses.  I just added a new “baby” to my arsenal, the Edge 80 optic.  And, ohhhh, I’m so in love I can hardly stand it.

My good friend brought her gorgeous pregnant friend to my house for some indoor maternity images, and it seemed the perfect time to try out my new lens.  Oh my goodness, I’m hooked!

After this, make SURE to head over to Anna’s blog, Alchemy of Art, for the next gorgeous stop in this blog circle!!

Vol XXI – Summer Evening

I had the opportunity to meet up with a photographer acquaintance when I was in Michigan last Summer, and the two of us went out to get a little shooting time on a beautiful Summer evening, refining our photography skills and teaching one another.  It was a great night and we got in a lot of awesome practice, photographing my child in the glory of golden hour, natural light outdoor photography.

Vol XX – A Little Shel

dallas photography workshops mentoring

Shel Silverstein, my very favorite childhood book author.  As an artist, I was, and am, constantly inspired by the whimsical, happy-go-lucky, colorful, magical poetry.  So, years ago, I decided to start a series of Shel-inspired images.  Sadly, the project never got really far, but thanks to a wonderful and talented friend of mine, Laura, who started a Shel project of her own, we now have accountability to finish the project, and I am thrilled.

I took the above image one Summer day last year, and then just a few more images of my own whimsical, happy-go-lucky child.:-)

Vol IXX – Light and Whimsy

{ Dallas Child Photographer | Photography Mentorships | Flower Mound Child Photographer }

This installment of my ongoing series of personal photography images of children and families in 2014 brings us to a wonderful Summer evening, spent mentoring my talented friend from Little Farm Photography in Michigan.  We had a great time with my girls, traipsing around Parker Mill Park in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and capturing images from a gorgeous, sunshine-filled night of fun and beauty.

Vol XVIII – August Besties

{ Dallas Child Photographer | Flower Mound Child Photographer | Texas Child Photographer }

As I continue along in my series of personal child and family photographs from 2014, I am now making my way into late Summer, August, where I spent most of my time away from Dallas, and in the somewhat cooler state of Michigan for most of the month.  :-)  Of course, any trip to Michigan MUST include PLENTY of playdates for my youngest child and her bestie, whose mom is also a photographer, so all playdates include pictures.  These girls are used to the camera!

I also did a lot of mentoring (take a look at my shop!) while I was traveling last Summer, and it was nice to have these two camera-ready gals as our beautiful models.
