Noah has to be the cutest, blue-eyed, almost-three-year old, blonde haired, lil' boy, we've photographed. We've been photographing Noah since he was born, capturing his newborn portraits at only a few days old. He had the cutest Dad and son pic I think we've ever taken. A large print of it hangs in out studio. It's been a joy and privilege to watch Noah grow up. Our photographic journey with the Duke family started back with his parents wedding. Noah was funny, he would make these roaring noises and funny faces. He ran out in the fields and did lil' boy stuff. We captured him in all of his personality. Afterwards, we photographed mom and dad together with him, and then individually. The images turned out wunderbar and I think this was all done in record time (1 hour). I hope Matt, Andrea, and Noah like the images... Enjoy.....

Janna will be a senior in a few days at MacArthur HS. I had her in class a couple of years ago. She's a cute as a button, outgoing, creative and intelligent, young lady. If you ever get to meet her, you'll immediately become friends because of her captivating personality. She's all smiles (atleast when I'm around her). Janna will be a great rep for us this year.... We're excited about having her. More images on the site....

This is our fourth time photographing Scott, Chelli, McKayla, and Hannah (as a family). To reminisce visit their previous sessions: session 1, session 2, session 3. It's such a privilege and honor being trusted to help capture and document the journey of their family. In just a short time, we've seen the girls change so much. Seeing their personalities develop and watching them interact is such a joy. As a photographer, this is why we do what we do. I just hope I never lose this appreciation for being given such a special opportunity. Scott and Chelli, thanks for entrusting us and sharing your lives with us. Feel free to leave comments....

Rebekah will be a senior at Randolph HS at the end of next week. She'll be our 2012 Senior Rep from there. We met her through a senior we photographed late last year (thanks Martha). Rebekah is a bright, smiley, and athletic young lady (not to mention she has killer blue eyes). She plays volleyball for the RoHawks, as well as being a member of NHS, Student Council, and one more group I don't remember. I think she'll represent us well. Thanks again Rebekah, we'll be seeing more of you this year. A couple more images on the site.

Ashley will be a senior at JM in less than a week. I've had the privilege of having her for two years in classes. She is a very athletic, intelligent, and trustworthy young lady. The reason we picked her is because in two years of knowing her, she's constantly shown us respect, diligence, and an appreciation for life. We love to see these kind of character qualities in young people, it's getting rarer these days. I think she'll be great for us this year. You'll be seeing more of her later in the year. Ashley, thanks for being one of our Reps this year... More images on the site...

The Campbells came back to us last weekend for their casual family portrait. We photographed one of their daughter's senior portraits, and did their formal portraits back in January. They are a very close and loving family; one that most people dream about having. The military tends to bring families together, and it sure has solidified this one. Due to weather conditions not suitable for outdoor portraits, we rescheduled for May (when all the family would be together again). They are about to move to TN, so an outdoor Texas portrait was desired. The images came out fantabulous, of course its easy to capture beautiful people (and their outsides aren't bad either ;) ). Just a side note, I got into some poison oak again. This is the second time in the last month and a half. I'm feeling itchy right now. Oh well, the images and experience were worth it.... Enjoy.

I think this is our seventh year photographing the JM Dollies Dance Team. I've been wanting to do something different for a while now, so this year we did. We put all of the Dollies in Barbie boxes. They loved it. Feel free to leave a comment or two... Click here to see a video of the session... Enjoy.

Sydnee is a senior at MacArthur HS. She came to us from seeing images of one of her friends we photographed last year (thanks Jori). She’s a very intelligent, friendly, and family oriented young lady. After college, she wants to be a nurse and take care of babies in the neo-natal area in hospitals. She’s also athletic; she’s played softball for most of her life, so we incorporated her gear for one of the outfits and got some cool images. When we met for the pre-consultation, Sydnee changed her mind about one of her outfits. I’m so glad she did because she looked stunning in her white sun dress in the flowers (nice choice Syd). We started out with her black outfit and the Texas flag. The black hat just seem to fit her outfit perfectly. We got some great images there (not mentioning what we had to say to get that Sydnee smile to come out). We then went down to our neighbor’s fields and took some images with the flowers (some of my favorites). We had to spray ourselves with bug spray to keep the chiggers off (who said making great images was easy). It was getting late, and since our boys hadn’t eaten, we ordered pizza. What a day, great images, Sydnee got her flowers, and everyone had pizza. Can’t say that wasn’t fun! I hope Sydnee likes ‘em, we certainly do… More images on the site. Click here to see a short video from the session. Feel free to leave a comment of two… Enjoy…

Rubi is a senior at JM. She’s good friends with another JM senior we’ve recently photographed. I didn’t know Rubi before the session, but since have come to know her and really like her. She’s funny, well-mannered, and seems to know her direction in life. She brought her friend Joann with her, so with the two of them laughing and telling stories, we got some great images. Rubi wanted to go back by the creek (aka – the poison ivy/oak area), I was reluctant, but ended up making our way back there. Time will tell, hopefully no one got exposed to the nasty little plant (even though Joann picked one up, oops). We got some very elegant dress images by the creek. While driving back there, I spotted some patches of yellow off in the distance. Come to find out, a good size area of yellow flowers were waiting for a subject to be photographed in. While we were there the sun turned hazy, so the light was perfect. The image below is probably one of my favorites from the entire 2011 senior season. There’s something about backlit, country scene images that draw me in. Hopefully, Rubi got the flower images she wanted. We finished up with the swing (battling the all-of-the-sudden wind). We had a great time and got some fantabulous images. Hopefully they like ‘em. More on the site, and click here to watch a short video from the session. Enjoy….
