Canvas Sale!! Just in time for Christmas!

From now until Monday, November, 30th, at 10 p.m. central all canvas prints are 20-30% off

If you order more than one canvas add an additional 5% to each one after that ~ for example, your first canvas is 20% off, your second canvas is 25% off, third canvas is 30% off (maximum of 30% off). If you buy 5 or more I’ll take 30% off the entire canvas order. Why would you want more than one canvas? Gifts for birthdays, Mother’s/Father’s Day, or Christmas. Wouldn’t your children’s grandparents love this!?! Or maybe you want one for your home! Also, a grouping of 2 or 3 or 4 canvases would be very dramatic! There are many sizes available that are not listed, including square sizes, inquire for pricing.
These gallery-wrapped canvases are gorgeous and come ready to hang on the wall. They may be framed too if that is your preference.

Call or email today for this limited time offer!!

All my 2008 customers should be able to access their galleries to participate in this sale. If you have any trouble, please let me know.
Please email me your order, rather than using ordering system as the prices do not reflect the sale. Scroll down for a pricing table (I don't know why blogger put this huge space here but I cannot get it to go away-I tried everything!)

Watch for it...

On Black Friday, I will be having a sale! You won't want to miss this opportunity so check back here on the ol' blog to find out more...

Ladies, hold onto your fallopian tubes!

Is it just me or does this little 6 month old cutie make your ovaries do a little dance on your uterus? She is a doll, even with a case of the sniffles that she had the morning of our session.

I couldn't decide on just one so you get 2 and I may need to add more as I proof. And I'm not even showing my fave from the session in case you want to use it for your cards!

I can't believe it's been 4 years!

I have been photographing this family for four years! With 4 very active kids, they always blow me away with how sweet they are to each other, how well-dressed they are, and their house is clean too! I don't know how they do it!
I'm not showing the family shots so they can send those out on their Christmas card, but here's a sneak peek of some others.

This family had such a cute house brimming with character...but not filled with light. We found some light where we could and then we went outside for a few snaps! I love shots that show how tiny newborns are!


What a sweet little beauty Miss A is! And her proud parents couldn't be nicer! I look forward to seeing them in a few months for their next Baby Plan visit!

teaching photography

I just gave a lesson to my mom's group on photography. I had fun doing it and I really hope the ladies learned a lot! Most had point-and-shoot cameras (purse cameras, not SLRs) and just want to take better pictures of their kids. Some do have SLRs and maybe they would be intrested in a beginner small group photography course I am thinking about doing (I am still working out the details).

I was thinking on the way home about a question one of the ladies had. Her camera's focus point was always centered, as many are, and if she wanted to create an off-center composition as we has discussed, it seemed she would have to do this with a crop. Then, on my way home, I remembered this: You can press your shutter release button (the button you push to take a picture) halfway down while your focus points are on your subject. Then recompose, moving your subject off-center while still pressing that button halfway down. Once you are happy with your composition, fully depress the button. I forgot about this because it's been so long since I've used a point and shoot and my SLR does it differently. I'm sure many people can use this tip to make more intresting compositions!

Warmth for your heart

Did you see this news story about an Aledo High School girl who has Down's Syndrome getting elected homecoming queen? I have a soft spot for kids with Down's but I think everyone would enjoy this story.

Here's a few quotes from the article:

By MICHAEL E. YOUNG / The Dallas Morning News

Never has the selection of a homecoming queen sent so many tears falling so freely.
Kristin Pass, an 18-year-old senior with Down syndrome, became Aledo High School's homecoming queen Friday to a joyous standing ovation and the flutter of a thousand tissues on a remarkable night for an amazing young woman.

"Kristin has a lot of friends – she likes everyone. It doesn't matter if you're tall or short, pretty, not pretty, smart, not smart – she likes everybody. She has great friends. And Aledo is a great community."

"She's just the neatest kid in the whole wide world," added her aunt, Chari Hust of Houston, "and everybody sees that."

She was so thrilled, her mother said, that she took her crown to bed with her.

"She's real proud of it," her friend Meaghan added.
Kristin and her family, including sister Kendall, now a freshman, moved to Aledo when Kristin was in the third grade. She was embraced by the people in town through good times and bad, including the death of her dad, J.T., two years ago.

Kristin doesn't care what's on the outside, Meaghan said. She's friends with everyone, and everyone admires that.

"She's the person we all want to be," Meaghan said

Not So Little Miss Kenslea

Here she is decked out in her favorite color, PINK! Yes, she has a favorite color and she's not even 2 weeks old in these pictures!
This mom is great and always up for anything--I love it! I got to wrap mom and baby in this fun fabric...Kind of reminds me of when I wrapped her and baby (while pregnant with her first) up in a piece of flowing fabric for some gorgeous maternity photos. This is such a sweet moment and Kenslea is loving being skin-to-skin with mommy.

ETA: wanted to add this crop for Kenslea's mom.
