Cedar Break Park in historic downtown Montgomery was the perfect location for little Ms. Kennedy’s 1st Birthday portrait session.  She wasn’t too sure about the camera at first but quickly warmed up after running, laying and having some snuggle time with Mom & Dad.

I believe little Kennedy may be a super model in the making.  Just look at her posing….and those beautiful blue eyes.  WOW!!

I love 1st Birthday sessions, especially the ones with CAKE!!!  Jamie, brought a single Birthday Cake for Kennedy to dig into and she wasted no time covering herself in icing!

Savannah, her mother (Denise) and I set out on a beautiful Sunday afternoon on a photographic adventure through several hundred acres of property that a friend of theirs allowed us to use for her session.  It was amazingly beautiful and almost everywhere you looked there was a spot to stop and snap a few great images!  I just loved a huge spot we found loaded with wisteria and Savannah braved the Texas sized bumble bees and jump right in for the shot!  The bees weren’t quite so cooperative but they did leave her alone.  Thank goodness.

Savannah is the Magnolia High School FFA 2014 Sweetheart and I just love the sash and the crown on her hat!!   I’m thinking maybe I need to get me one of those just because.   Savannah is beautiful on the inside and out, tall and statuesque so it’s no surprise that she also plays basketball.  Her mother is fairly tall too but her father arrived later in her session and as soon as I saw him I told him that I could see how she wound up so short.  HA!!  That’s just my short self being jealous!

We also had a great time at the Magnolia High Ag Barn photographing Savannah with her pig who didn’t seem all that cooperative at the time but turned out to be a rather photogenic little fellow!  She asked if we could do that and told me that she brought a formal and had her boots!  Of course we can!  I live for stuff like that!  Absolutely LOVE it!!:P She heads off to Texas Tech this summer so lets all wish her luck!!

Congratulations Savannah and thank you for choosing me to capture your Senior memories!!

The eyes definitely have it this year when it comes to DLP Seniors and Adrienne is no exception!  WOW!!  Adrienne, a Senior at Montgomery High School,  her mother and I ventured to downtown Conroe for her photo session then back to Starbucks on the lake for a few photos in her Naval Academy shirt with the lake in the background.  Did I mention that Ms. Adrienne is headed to the United States Naval Academy this summer?  WOW!  What an accomplishment that is!!

She is also the younger sister of one of my Girl Scouts, Corinne.  Corinne graduated in 2011 and is currently at the Air Force Academy in Colorado.  We were fortunate to do most of her Senior Portraits during a troop trip to Adelboden, Switzerland!  I tried to explain to their mother how Adrienne’s images would be amazing if we hopped a flight over and did her session there as well but couldn’t manage to convince her.  he he

No matter….Adrienne rocked it!!!  Absolutely beautiful!!  Thanks for choosing me for your Senior Portraits Adrienne and CONGRATS!!

I’m sure lots of you ask yourselves why you need to hire a photographer when you can take great shots these days with any smart phone or even a good point and shoot from the store.  Why hire out and why do they charge so much?

Because there IS a difference!  A good photographer knows how to get the best lighting in any situation and believe me…it is ALL about the lighting my friends.  They know how to edit a good image and make it great and they know how to fix boo-boo’s or those shots we all get and love that well….just weren’t right!!  It happens to ALL of us!

Making your images fantastic and hand editing each image takes time as does shooting, culling (narrowing down the files), backing up, maintaining equipment, etc.  There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes of your favorite photographers beautiful blogs and images.  :P

Here’s an example of a good portrait edited into a fantastic portrait!

And an example of a bad lighting situation corrected.

When in doubt – hire out!

Have a fantastic day all!!
