dallas walk-about | dallas child photographer

a few days ago i hauled the kids off to a friends house at the crack of dawn, in their jammies so that i could brave the sizzling heat and head downtown for a walk-about. i have never gone on one of these adventures and was so excited. the premise behind a walk-about is to gather a bunch o' photographers (professional/ hobbiests/ newbies) and stroll; taking pictures of anything and everything.

it was fun. it was crazy hot. the kids that volunteered to be our models were so cute AND (this is a very big and...) it was cool to just take pictures with absolutely no agenda.

i met a couple of "characters" along the way. the kids had a dance recital and had to leave so the other photographers started taking pictures of the architecture, etc...but i love faces. so i found me a couple of kind people who allowed me to shove my camera in their face. the first gentleman was ever so kind. he and i chatted for a minute in the scorching heat. he wore a smile the entire time. his eyes tell a story, dont they?

then there was one of dallas' finest. who knew the man was a natural in front of the camera?!! what a HOOT!

the kids were adorable and so easy to photograph. can you imagine how tough it is to be the focus of 30+ photographers cat-calling you "look this way?" it was like they had their own pack of paparazzi. but, they handled it all well.

thanks everyone for a great morning!

GREAT Shots!!! Everything is so bright and crisp. So happy you made it to the walk:-) I was going through "play" entries and recognized your blog banner... didn't put a face with the blog at the walk. I'm so bad:-)
