What a Year | Events of 2012

- - Comments Off on What a Year | Events of 2012

It’s exciting to look back over 2012 and remember not only the wonderful families and seniors I’ve worked with, but also the outstanding events I’ve had the privilege of photographing.   I hit the ground running in 2012 by taking my camera behind the scenes of HGTV’s Curb Appeal and...

Klyde Warren Park | Downtown Dallas Family Portraits

- - Comments Off on Klyde Warren Park | Downtown Dallas Family Portraits

Klyde Warren Park is a five acre green space built over the recessed Woodall Roger Freeway and is located on the edge of the Arts District, between Downtown Dallas and Uptown.  It’s a welcome addition to the area and hosts an impressive schedule of seemingly nonstop daily and weekend activities (I get great updates from them...

Boys and Bikes | Mansfield Family Photographer

- - Comments Off on Boys and Bikes | Mansfield Family Photographer

Boys, bicycles, trains and baseball. I’m always amazed at how much kids grow up in a year!  It’s been that long since I last photographed the Stone and McKinney family– and bicycles have managed to theme themselves into both sessions. Eventually I’ll be photographing three daredevils on dirt bikes…and maybe...

Rock Climbing at River Legacy Park | Arlington TX Senior Photographer

- - Comments Off on Rock Climbing at River Legacy Park | Arlington TX Senior Photographer

Senior Portraits are always more special with friends or family around.  I always encourage my seniors to bring along a friend, big sister or mom and dad to share in the excitement of their on-location senior photography experience.   Matthew made the trip from Joshua, TX to Arlington River Legacy...

Funyuns and Family | Arlington Family Photographer

- - Comments Off on Funyuns and Family | Arlington Family Photographer

80 is definitely the new 60. I had the privilege of photographing Ray alongside his family during the surprise 80th birthday bash thrown in his honor last month.  Two cool facts about Ray:Ray worked as a scientist at Frito Lay in the late 60’s when he invented, Funyuns.  He still has the...

The Pink Zebra + A Ferocious Tiger | Arlington TX Family Photographer

- - Comments Off on The Pink Zebra + A Ferocious Tiger | Arlington TX Family Photographer

It has finally cooled off in north central Texas and the extreme summer heat is all but a distant memory (just stick around). The leaves are changing and falling and the crisp air makes it an ideal time to get outside.  It’s the perfect time to grab everyone and head...

The Laugh | Arlington TX Family Photographer

- - Comments Off on The Laugh | Arlington TX Family Photographer

“A day without laughter is a day wasted.”- Charlie Chaplin. Three year-old Branch made my job as a family photographer super easy. Seriously–you can’t fake laughter like that!  And he brought it the whole time. I grew up with Branch’s mom, so it was fun to reunite and spend some...

Feeding the Giraffes | Arlington TX Senior Photographer

- - Comments Off on Feeding the Giraffes | Arlington TX Senior Photographer

Have you ever had lunch with a giraffe?  The Dallas Zoo offers a very up close and personal experience with these amazing animals.  Five bucks gets you some juicy lettuce leaves and all but guarantees a pleasant visit from a friendly neighborhood giraffe.   Martin High School senior, Larissa, has an...

Homecoming Hangout | Fort Worth Event Photographer

- - Comments Off on Homecoming Hangout | Fort Worth Event Photographer

There’s nothing quite like the energy of high school students before a school dance.  This was my second year to photograph this group of young friends.  A little older and wiser since last year, these sophomores and juniors are an easy-going group of long-time friends (with a few new ones)....

Lightenupandshoot Workshop | Dallas Street Photography

- - Comments Off on Lightenupandshoot Workshop | Dallas Street Photography

Maybe it isn’t street photography in its purest form, but I’ve grown to enjoy this type of interaction with people and I’ve found that almost everyone loves a good picture of themselves, even from a stranger with a camera! This was my second Lightenupandshoot workshop with Michael “Mikey” Thompson.  Seven...

Botanic Garden | Fort Worth Senior Pictures

- - Comments Off on Botanic Garden | Fort Worth Senior Pictures

The Botanic Garden in Fort Worth is always a popular place for photographers.  We chose to hang out in the Fuller Garden, an area I’d honestly never seen or even knew existed for that matter. We shot during the pleasantly cool evening around an actual wedding that was underway in...
