Senior Fun!

{Dallas Senior Photographer | DFW Senior Photographer | Flower Mound Senior Photography}

I love shooting seniors!  It’s a big milestone, graduating from High School and setting out into the world to begin new adventures.  I love the easy laughter, the sheepish smiles, the fun-loving attitude.  Photographing Seniors gives each individual a chance to shine, to express him/herself, and to celebrate this milestone, most of the time with proud parents accompanying them.

My first senior today is Miss M, a beauty with amazing eyes!  She was so smiley and up for anything, and she loves and dotes on her baby sister.

Next up is J, a young man I’ve watched grow and mature since he was just a preschooler.  So amazing getting to see how he’s transformed into such a gentleman, in both stature and demeanor, and how proud his parents must be.

Then there is beautiful K, one of the smiliest seniors I have ever photographed.  She laughed and grinned her way through the whole session, and loved on her dog (who, by the way, is NOT a fan of water).  She was such a good sport for all the traipsing around I had her doing, despite the hordes of mosquitoes.

These next two were LOTS of fun.  Their moms knew each other (and me) and we put together a session where two seniors went out together and took turns in the spotlight.  It was SO fun and I recommend this to anyone who might want senior pictures with me in the coming months.

Shoot Out!

{Dallas Portrait Photography | North Texas Portraits | Flower Mound Photographer}

 

Hi there, I told you I’d be back!;-) Today’s feature is from the early Summer, when I went to Wisconsin to join my friend Danah of Danah Zoulek Photography for a shoot-out with a few other local photographers.  She supplied all our gorgeous models and we had such fun exploring all the many possibilities we had on that beautiful day.  I was in love with all the variety, and of course, all the beautiful people!  It was an amazing day and I’m so glad I had the chance to join in the fun in beautiful Wisconsin.

Maternity – Glowing Gals!

{ Dallas Portrait Photography | North Texas Photographer | Flower Mound Photographer}

Hello neglected little blog!  Neglected, no more!  I am going to be filling you up with sessions of all kinds over the coming weeks.  I have so many treasures to share with everyone – newborns, family photographs, children, styled photo sessions, and more.  It’s been a crazy and overwhelming year, but as it draws to an end, I’m committing to sharing all the fun I’ve had in 2014!

The first feature will be many of the gorgeous maternity sessions I’ve been blessed to photograph this year.  I’m simply in awe of the gorgeousness – have pregnant women gotten that much more beautiful since the days I was having children?  Apparently so!

First, beautiful Gretchen and her family.

Every one of these women (and their families!) were a joy to work with.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this exciting time in your lives!

So many blog posts, so little time….

I wonder if the blog-reading world has given up on me, now that months have passed with only a couple of rogue blog posts featuring my many Dallas and Michigan photography sessions.  This year has somehow sort of slipped by and carried me with it, in a haze.   Moving across the country presents a lot of new and interesting challenges, for both life and business, and I’m slowly starting to get my groove, but it has taken a while.

Now that the count of sessions I WANT to blog is climbing over 50, I need to just suck it up and start posting, like, a LOT.  Because, you know, it’s almost October and I have not caught up on my sessions from, um, April?

So here goes.  Be prepared, you might see a lot of me here.

First up – the lovely family of a fellow photographer, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  (Check out her wonderful work here!)

Life By Lens – September

Whew, WHAT a month.  August and September were a flurry of activity.  The kids and I drove back to Texas after an extended trip to Michigan, and we kept busy starting up the school year, diving into Fall sports, and working on some fun personal projects, and taking our kids out for styled photography sessions and playdates with their friends.  In that time, I also took a trip to Utah for my first-ever photography conference, Clickaway.  Amazing and life-changing experience.  Afterwards I took a quick trip to Montana to visit my parents and their fur-babies, and I had some fun shooting some non-human subjects for a change.:-)

Some pictures from along the way….

Reena - Sally, you have the magical touch with that camera of yours….your images are always so stunning…looks like you and your kids had a fun road trip…love the Montana pictures. Sorry I didn’t make it to Clickaway to see you.

JoAnna - I was just thinking the same as Reena. You have such a gift for capturing moments and emotions in just the right light. Love everything about these!

Lemmon - Magical indeed. Your photos continuously blow me away!

I know you’ve heard it from me a million times, but you truly are my fave photographer! Your ability to capture love, life, and emotions is absolutely breathtaking. And your use of light? I need to channel my inner Sally or something!

Beautiful work! <3
