Snappity Snap : Fort Worth Baby Photographer

I've read before that it's hard for an artist to play Pictionary. They say that the remedial stick drawings people use in order to win the game are so different from the skills that artists have spent years trying to learn and perfect that it's just impossible for them to draw something without the details which suck up their time during the game. I never fully understood the concept of this until the last year.

Since I've opened my doors professionally for photography I've used my son as a primary model for new locations, equipment, and insane ideas before presenting them to a client. He has so many digital images of himself tucked away on my hard drive just waiting for me to have a spare minute (ha!) to go through and pick out the ones I want to print. But really it's sad how he is lacking the traditional snap-shots of childhood that fill so many of my baby albums.

I'm on a mission these days to bring the camera with me more often and not be so focused on the technical aspects of the photography, but to just enjoy the moment and feel free to take a snap-shot once in awhile.

So today, while at the mall, I took some snap shots of him playing with his friend Lea. I did some very light editing to them, and I'm sharing them here with my readers.

Fort Worth Maternity Sneak Peek

You know those sessions where you walk away thinking "I cannot wait to see how many awesome images I got!"

I had one of those on Friday. It was a lucky break all around that I was able to schedule this session but I'm so glad it worked out and I'm drooling over the thought of the newborn images come this September. I don't even know if I can properly describe how much I enjoyed myself during this session and getting to meet the three doggies and one bird. ;-) Did I mention I'm an animal lover? Bring on the slobber and the furballs!

Here's a little sneak peek so you can all see why I'm so excited.

They had the most amazing furniture I've seen. I've been drooling since I left.

And this crib. It's gorgeous. They even have the room all decorated and ready.

I finally found someone willing to use my tie! I just loved how this one turned out.

And, I must admit, this is one of my all time favorite maternity images I've ever taken.

And, of course, we couldn't leave out her first baby.

N & T thank you so much for welcoming me into your home for this session. You guys have great style and I can't wait to come back to meet your little one.

Things have been quiet.

There's always a reason why I seem to suddenly disappear. This week it was because of a death of a family friend. I was working on a photo slideshow for the funeral and a little out of reach for awhile, I'm sorry about that. Please expect to be receiving a return email or phone call from me early this next week.

The funeral was beautiful. The slideshow I managed to put together despite technology difficulties was perfect. ( ) And it was just a very touching service.
