Life by Lens – Whirlwind August

Whew.  I drove, with my five children, from Texas to Michigan this Summer, and the last few weeks have been a flurry of weddings, client sessions, mentoring sessions and photographer “playdates.”  Of course, my children often end up modeling for the mentoring and playdate sessions, so I have a little to show you of my kids over this past month.  :-)

When you are done here, you must must must head over to the page of my incredibly talented friend and colleague, Michigan Photographer Stephanie of Lemmonmade Photography.

Reena - oh goodness, these are just stunning Sally. You are truly blessed in what you do…..to travel and with your kids — to be so talented in your photography (and have such gorgeous kids) wow. I am just truly blow away. I do think you (and kids) need to come to Tucson… :)

August 21, 2014 - 1:40 pm

Chris - Gorgeous! You are so talented. Wish I would’ve gotten to know you sooner, before your move from MI, but I look forward to continue to be inspired by your awesomeness in TX ;)

Shelly Arnold - Beautiful photos… Thank you so much for inspiring!

Misty Maternity

{Dallas Photographer | North Texas Photography | Dallas Maternity Photographer}

Wow.

I happened to be within driving distance of this beautiful couple when they contacted me for a maternity shoot near Chicago, Illinois.  And I couldn’t be happier that I was able to make it, because the entire evening was magical.  It had been raining (and raining, and raining), but just before I arrived to the first location, the rain went away and left a beautiful, sunny mist in the air, a perfect backdrop.  Our next location was on the lake, and wouldn’t you know, a beautiful fog showed up and enveloped the entire beach.  You should have seen this very happy photographer.  :-)  Having the most adorable client with a gorgeous wardrobe, well, that certainly didn’t hurt anything!

I saw in the social media that this lovely lady has just had her perfect baby girl, and I wish them the very best on their adventure!

Gretchen - So very gorgeous! What a beautiful girl, and your work always amazes me!

August 17, 2014 - 9:02 am

Chris - Love, love, love! They are all so beautiful!

August 17, 2014 - 9:49 am

Reena - words escape me — this is THE most stunning session I have ever seen…..the mama to be, the husband, the locations….wow!! and I bet their precious bundle of joy is just as gorgeous.

August 17, 2014 - 11:18 am

Linnae Harris - Wow. These are magical. You are right. You were blessed with amazing light but you also are very talented so its way more than pretty light. From another photographer, I’m curious, it looked like a lot of different settings and a couple outfit changes. How long are your sessions? This looks like it would take half a day to shoot.

August 17, 2014 - 1:52 pm

admin - This one was about three hours. :-) They aren’t always that long!

August 17, 2014 - 10:26 pm

Lemmon - Gah. This may very well be my favorite session of yours. Like ever.

Simply breathtaking!

jeanine - Incredible! So beautiful! These are amazing keepsakes of such a special time.

Life By Lens – a bit of this and that

Hi all!  I’m sure that many of you are knee-deep in the busyness of Summer, and I am certainly no exception.  Traveling to various states, holidays, photo shoots and weddings, beating the Texas heat!  I still consider it vital, as a photographer, to continually shoot for “you” – as busy as life can get, you want to hold on to the memories that matter!  And when you shoot for you, you can experiment more, too.

Again, this post is all featuring pictures of my youngest daughter, because, well, she’s the only one who actually wants to be in them!

After looking through this post, make sure to go to the next spot in our blog circle and see life from another fabulous photographer’s perspective, Joanna of JoAnna Robbins Photography

MINI SESSIONS!

Well, guys, I am sooooo behind on blogging it’s not even funny, but the good news is, I have lots and lots to post and share with you over the course of the next few weeks.  This traveling girl is TIRED, but excited and having so much fun going from Texas to Michigan, Arizona, Wisconsin and Illinois for amazing sessions and lots of joy.

A couple months ago, I had the great pleasure of spending a whirlwind day photographing a multitude of awesome families for mini sessions at The Barn Antiques in Northville, Michigan.  Everything went swimmingly, but definitely not without the help of my friend and fellow photographer, Stephanie of Lemmonmade Photography.

Thanks to all who came to visit that day – it was a pleasure meeting you and yours!

The Texas Bluebonnets

{ Dallas Family Photographer | Dallas Child Photographer | Texas family child portraits }

Well, it’s July, and I’m just now posting pictures from this Spring session in the bluebonnets.  But, oh, how I loved this session!  One of the things I looked forward to the most, when moving to Texas, was the beautiful bluebonnets the state is known for.  So, when this mom emailed, requesting flower field portraits, I was all over that!  Her two daughters were so precious and I had such a great time with them on this beautiful evening.
