in the studio :: 10 year old photos

Welcome to In The Studio, a place to show off your studio and meet some great artists! Since we just celebrated a birthday around here, that meant some fresh ten year old photos were in order! This girl cracks me up. It’s always a struggle for me and her to agree on wardrobe and hair. It usually involves compromise on both sides and a willingness for each to do some photos as they please. Thank goodness we had fun during the shoot, so we didn’t both come home in tears!

It’s Spring here in S. Africa which means the jacarandas are in full bloom. There’s nothing like that beautiful purple that lines the streets of our town. It’s a treat that we only get in October, so I try to enjoy it as much as I can.

Last year I said I was going to do her photos in the midst of the jacarandas, but I waited too long. This year I vowed to make it happen, so we didn’t miss the opportunity. A Sunday afternoon was the perfect time since not many people are out.

I can’t believe my baby has entered double digits. She’s growing up way too fast and not listening to her mama when I ask her to please slow down. Sigh.

Family photography

family portraits can be fun?

Make Family Portraits Fun

Fall is an excellent time to take family portraits. I know some people dread it, but honestly, it doesn’t have to be stressful. I’m over at Tommy Nelson sharing sharing tips I’ve learned both in front of and behind the camera, so the event doesn’t end in tears but in a memorable shot to be treasured for years to come!

in the studio :: home try on photography

Welcome to In The Studio, a place to show off your studio and meet some great artists! I can’t believe we only have a week and a half left in the great state of Texas. The chiggers have just about eaten me alive, so I wonder if there will be much of me left to go back. 🙂 We’re busy meeting up with as many people as we can and trying to clear out our storage unit. The schedule may be busy but that doesn’t mean we don’t have time to stop for a little photo shoot.

I fell in love with Warby Parker‘s frames when I ordered my first pair almost three years ago. Since I’m contemplating ordering another pair to make me look even more fabulous, I ordered five frames from their free home try on program. It’s really great. You pick out five frames. They send them to you. You keep them for five days and then send them back. It’s all for free. Score!

You can’t have a box of five cool looking glasses without having a little fun with them, so the kids and I went to the park, and they modeled their little hearts out. I’m so glad they play along with me sometimes.

in the studio :: graffiti photography

Welcome to In The Studio, a place to show off your studio and meet some great artists! Y’all, I’m am so sorry! We have been traveling all over the place this week. We got home this morning at almost 1 AM. I slipped into bed and slept in until 10:30 this morning. As I woke up, I panicked as I remembered I hadn’t written this post! To give you an idea of just how crazy this week has been, Emma Grace asked me this morning, “So where are we driving to today?” That pretty much sums it up, folks.

next to crazy people

One of our destinations this week was Austin, TX. If you’ve never been to Austin, you’re missing out. The food scene is amazing. The creativity is everywhere. Did you know it’s the live music capital of the world?? It’s a great place to visit.

so cool

against the wall

My budding photographer just got his own camera and was intent on finding a graffiti wall to practice his photographer’s eye. Seriously, who’s kid is this?? Not only did we find a graffiti wall but a whole graffiti park. Hope Outdoor Gallery totally delivered. I took the opportunity to do a little photo shoot in the midst of all the colorful art. So fun.

Our travel adventures continue for another almost 2 months. Who knows what other interesting photo shoots you might find next. 🙂

in the studio :: family photography

Welcome to In The Studio, a place to show off your studio and meet some great artists! Well, I’ve been in Texas for a week and a half. I think I’m over jet lag. I’ve managed to drive once and not get into an accident, even though it took total concentration on my part. It’s been great being back, and I’m really excited to enjoy part of a Texas Summer, hot as it may be.

don't mess

One of the things I enjoy whenever I come back is getting to do some photo shoots. It’s such a great way to get to know families while doing something that I love. Win, win!

This week I did a photo session over by Heritage Museum in Frisco. It was SO windy, but we managed to find some great spots where the buildings were blocking the wind.
