say what??? | dallas child photographer

as i am driving down the tollway, in rush hour traffic, listening to 'Annie' belt out a tune on the dvd player...my phone rings. it's my sister. she is bursting to tell me about my niece's funny comment. this ought to be good. my niece is not your average kid.

apparently, out of nowhere, this 8 year old pipes up with "Mom, Daddy met Lindy [current wife] on the internet, maybe you should go on ebay and find yourself a man."

ehhh, what? hmmm...how did you...eh...what??!!

so after i stop laughing and wipe my eyes i think 'hmmm, i wonder?' i just had to turn on the computer and get on ebay. maybe the kid knows something. it was worth a look-see, i figure.

how do you search for a man? what search terms do i use? i tried the obvious... MAN...but got a lot of male underware hits...not sooo bad, especially after i saw the pictures. ok...MALE DATE...this produced all types of watches for sale. the closest i was able to get was an instruction manual for $165 on becoming a male escort. that has got to be one interesting read. :)

so, i guess my sister cant buy herself a man...but she could get a how-to-guide on becoming the perfect male escort. easter is coming up. could make a lovely gift for that special someone.

i swear, i LOVE kids. life would be so boring without them.

road trip update | dallas child photographer

we have had a request to head out to Hilton Head and set up shop for a couple days...i am not opposed to this, or to traveling anywhere really. just email me or call and the same holds true for your location as for my crazy, summer road trip. i need at least 4 sessions lined up to justify a stop.

thanks for the interest!! i love to travel!!

road trip!! | dallas child photographer

Herd of Birdz is thinking of taking to the open road this summer...and we might stop in your area! We are tentatively planning a crazy-four-week-stop-at-every-quirky-road-side-attraction kind of trip and thought, "Hey! We could actually justify this if we book sessions along the way!"

We have received enough phone calls and emails asking us to travel and shoot that we thought this could be the year to do something fun.

So, this is what we have so far: leave Texas in July. Travel to Roswell, New Mexico for the Alien festival (cool!). At some point along the way, stop in Southern Utah & Northern Arizona. Then...Vegas baby! San Diego, LA, San Francisco and everything inbetween. Portland, Oregon, Seattle and then on to Park City, Utah.

I need to have at least 4 sessions booked in your area to warrant pulling off the road and I will likely book no more than 6 or 7 sessions at each stop, because hey, there is the 'World's Largest Gopher' and the 'Famous Pink Dinosaur' to experience. If you are in, around or anywhere close to these areas and are interested in having us take some of the grooviest pictures for you, send me an email or give me a shout and we will start the planning.

The Herd is taking flight!
