Wichita Falls Family Photography | Ty

November 17th had to be one of the windiest days we've had in a while!  Not only was it windy, but it was cold and cloudy (where's the sun when you need it?).

I was supposed to shoot Jennifer and her three lovely children -- but with conditions as they were, we opted to shoot Ty only - and reschedule the rest of the family on a much more accommodating day.

Now, can you imagine how much fun it wasn't -- being in front of the camera with your little sister and brother watching (and probably making faces)???  Ty was fantastic -- he hit his mark every time!

Thank you Ty for braving the weather -- and good luck on your new job and move!

Wichita Falls Family Photography | Doug, Ruth, Duke -- and Jewels

My creative director (yes, I've given Rick a job, it doesn't pay much, oh wait, it doesn't pay at all) and I arrived at Doug and Ruth's house and were immediately greeted by their very fierce (looking -- maybe I should have said fab -- because she is) guard dog Jewels.

We arrived a little early so while Doug and Ruth finished getting ready, Rick and I went out front to set up. Duke was all duded up and rearing to go so he followed us out.  He's one of the most curious (and totally cute) toddlers I've ever met!  He decided that Rick needed some help so he became my assistant #2.  If it weren't for child labor laws, Rick might be replaced!

Doesn't he look like he knows what he's doing (and he's only two year's old)!

Well, we laughed like little school girls throughout the shoot!  Duke kept us entertained the entire time.  Here are a  few of my favorites from Sunday's shoot!

When we wrapped everything up, sweet Duke brought us each a chocolate chip cookie on a plate.  He dropped Rick's on the floor and never skipped a beat -- we of course got tickled (again) and  had another wonderful laugh!  

It was truly a pleasure taking photographs of this beautiful family! 

PS -- Jewels never did warm up to me (I must be loosing my touch)!

Happy Halloween

A couple of weeks ago, we had a wonderful dinner with our friends Elizabeth and John.  Somehow, the conversation turned to neighbors of theirs who were having a Halloween costume party for their neighbors  on the 30th.  As luck would have it, Rick knows them well -- so, we told Elizabeth and John that we might just drop by unannounced!

One problem, Rick and I so don't like wearing costumes because we're dorky enough -- costumes might make us look normal and then we'd have to dress up all the time!  So the wheels in my head started spinning.

What to do, what to do -- I mean, we weren't officially invited, although our friends of the friends invited us.


Our very elaborate (and expensive) Halloween Costumes!

You guessed it (or maybe you didn't), we came as alleged party crashers.

One lady figured it out -- and asked me where my blond wig was.  I explained that the wig would only have been the start.  I would have had to miraculously grow about a foot taller and lose 50 lbs.  Neither was going to happen in less than a month, so I didn't bother with the blond wig.  Another lady at the party called me Michelle, so I'm quite positive she didn't get my costume.  Oh well -- so, maybe it wasn't the brainiest of my ideas -- but we sure had fun explaining our costumes.

I need to wish my bestest friend in the world a very happy 7th dating anniversary!  He's treating me to Game 4 of the World Series in Arlington tonight!  We (and every Texas Ranger's fan) were thrilled when they won Game 3 last night in front of a home crowd!  GO RANGERS!!!!!

Happy Anniversary Rick!!!!  I love you!!!

Everyone else -- be safe, watch for kids out trick-o-treating, and have a wonderful Sunday!

PS -- thank you John and Elizabeth for (allegedly) inviting us and a huge thank you to the LaTour's for not kicking us out and treating us to a fun party (the food was delish!!!!)!

Wichita Falls Pet Photographer | Sonny D, Patience is a virtue I don't own!

I've been trying to get a decent portrait of Sonny D -- but, sad to say, I've run out of patience. He's just not willing to cooperate!

I tried taking a picture of him yesterday, but he started shaking, and his nose started dripping like a leaky faucet. I thought maybe he was under the weather and started to feel sorry for him.

About 10 minutes later, some bicyclists zoomed by on the bike trail out back -- and everyone came alive -- including Sonny. No shakes, no runny nose, no poor ole me! He was back to his old self.

I told Rick about how weird it is that Sonny can come down with the "doggy vapors" when it suits him -- and then spring back to life when it's all clear!

So -- I was determined to get his 2010 portrait today -- no matter what! And guess what? The shakes started and the nose started running!

Well, you know, sometimes you just have to work with what you have! Here's Sonny D's 2010 portrait (runny nose and all - and yes, I could have been nice and edited the run out in Photshop)!
On the baseball front -- the Rangers aren't doing so well in the World Series.  Two games, two losses.  I'm chalking it up to nerves!  Let's hope they shake this before Saturday's game in Arlington!

Have a great weekend
