One of my favorite places to go in Rockwall is the Harbor. The Harbor has several restaurants, a movie theater, and lots of scenic places to sit and enjoy, or to take pictures. I love going out to the Harbor just before sunset and taking numerous pictures of the different stages of the sunset. I love the beautiful orange/pink colors. These pictures were actually taken with an iPhone 6. They turned out pretty good!
I recently got the opportunity to photograph these two beautiful sisters. This was the first time for the little one, but I got the privilege of doing a photo session about 5 years ago with the older sibling. This was so much fun! My favorite part is capturing the candid moments when the girls were just being themselves. I especially love the one of the little one looking through the spokes of an old wheel.
I love having family sessions at Harry Myers Park. There are so many unique areas to create many different shots! Harry Myers Park is located off Washington Street in downtown Rockwall. It is a hidden treasure with ponds, trails, picnic tables and lots more!
I had the pleasure of taking this little cutie's pictures recently. You can tell he is a very special little boy and is very much loved by his parents. His big smile lights up his entire face. His birthday theme was The Hungry Caterpillar. I was able to create a caterpillar banner and incorporate the book into his session. Thank you Strickland family for letting me be part of his special one year photos!
So excited that Shelby will be officially joining our family soon. As soon as I heard they were engaged, I of course took a road trip to Bryan/College Station to take their engagement pictures. Since they are both Aggies, the first pictures we took were in front of the Aggie barn just outside of Calvert. We then took a stroll to downtown Bryan to take a few pictures in front of some of the old buildings, and then of course we ended up on the A&M campus for our last set of pictures. It was such a pleasure to be a part of this and am excited about their upcoming wedding in September!
I have know Leann for a long time. She has been through a lot the past few years so for her to find happiness again is truly amazing. This sweet couple got hitched recently at Double D Ranch in Mesquite. One feature I like about DD Ranch is the ability to have the wedding and reception all in one place. Thank goodness the rain took a break so we could get some great pictures outside. Happy 1 month anniversary to Eric & Leann! It was a privilege to be a part of your special day!
I always love hanging out with these two. It does not look it, but it was pretty cold the morning we managed to get in some great bluebonnet pictures before we froze. Nothing like beautiful bluebonnets in the spring!
I was so excited to take the first bluebonnet pictures of the year this past weekend. Little Miss Rylee just turned one and wanted to have her pictures done in bluebonnets. What a cutie!
There is a very small window of opportunity for bluebonnet pictures. Usually the month of April is best if there is not a late freeze. Bluebonnets look best if we have had a lot of rain so hopefully there will be plenty of beautiful bluebonnets this season. Contact Val Bryant if you are interested in scheduling a bluebonnet session. 972-839-6720 or email@example.com
What a privilege is was to shoot my niece's one year session recently. I can't believe she will be a year old in just a few weeks. She was almost my birthday present last year. She was born less than an hour before my birthday! This little cutie had so much fun with her session...as you can see she loves cake and loves to show her personality through her expressions. I can't wait to attend her party in a few weeks!
Not only do I enjoy photographing people, I also enjoy working with still objects. I have the props, background and proper lighting to set the perfect stage to make your products look their best. Tammy at Lone Star Lather, has some of the best soaps. They not only look yummy, but smell great! I had lots of fun using my creativity to set up each soap scent with specific elements that would enhance that soap's ingredients.
I love to capture those special moments in people's lives through photography. I am constantly looking at a scene and thinking how could that work in a photo session, or what angle would work to capture the beauty that God has blessed us with.
