sun-kissed | frisco child photographer

i love this time of year. not too hot, not too humid, not too many bugs and the sun truly feels like it is kissing your skin.

this day was perfect.

as i started to get my trusty camera ready for the session, it became very clear that my window of opportunity for pictures was going to be about 30 seconds. this kiddo was definitely not "into" having his picture taken and made sure i knew where he stood on the matter. he was so serious and no matter what i tried, he gave me the "stink-eye."

until i found his magic and away we went. gads, he was so funny! kids are simply magical when they laugh and tell stories and play. ours was not the longest session but it had to be one of my most satisfying. every indication told me that this was not going to be fun...for either of us... but in the end we were rolling in the weeds laughing.

i have to admit, when you get right down to it, i am one goofy duck. i have no shame. i am one of "them." i may be...well, older than 20...but deep down i am about 10 years old with mud on my face, shoes untied and cotton candy stuck in my hair. it might take me a minute, but eventually these kiddos recognize a fellow goof-ball, then all is good.

thank you, kind sir, for sharing some of your magic with me.

about to fly | frisco senior photographer

seniors are so much fun. the way they talk about their last year of high school and their college choice is riddled with excitement. they are a breath of fresh air and you just have to love that about them.

good luck next year, missy! you are going to have so much fun and your talents will take you far. i had a great time. come see me sometime... :)

good day | frisco child photographer

do you ever feel "ho hum?" hesitant and cautious? maybe a little frustrated and annoyed? and THEN......

someone does the smallest, kindest thing and it turns your entire day around. i love that. thank you, stranger, for the genuine smile at exactly the right moment that tossed a little light in my direction.

engagement | dallas family photographer

i just love how engaged people look at each other. sweet. kind. excited.

these two were so cute with each other and i had to laugh when a fleeting thought danced through my mind...are we all this patient with each other "in the beginning?" well, more specifically, i was thinking, "was i this kind and patient?" you know, in the beginning...a long long time ago? i am sure i was, i mean, am. :)

thank you for a fun afternoon and i wish you all the best!
