A Bribe is worth a Thousand Photos…

I wanted to spend the night with my Kiki, and this is what we did in about 12
hours! We started our morning with scrambled eggs and an English muffin eating
at the kitchen counter. Then after dressing in my vintage looking dress Kiki found
at Salvation Army for a photo shoot ($3.00), we headed out the front door to
visit the kitty’s across the street. That’s bribe No. 1.

No. 2-Pez for sitting in pinkish chair
No. 3-Licking the brownie batter
No. 4-Putting on Makeup for the shoots
No. 5-Getting to see Kiki’s vintage Barbie Dolls and playing with them
It took all of this to get all of these photos, narrowed down from about 745 images!

My Wish for You…

is a blessed Christmas season and  much happiness in the New Year!

baby Liv at 5 months posing, yet another time for her KiKi! Poor thing, wonder

how much time I have to photograph her before she rebels???

Those silly little animals overheard my story…

They overheard me chatting on the phone about my trip
to Round Top and The Prairie luncheon with Rachel Ashwell! I
casually mentioned that I had been to a fabulous and fun party
and well, they decided to have a party of their own! They wanted
to check out all of the fun gifts I received in my parting bags so they
took it upon themselves to dress up in their finest and decorate
themselves in cards and gifts! Lot’s of fanfare was in order and
everyone was there, Bunny, Horse, Sternsey Rabbit, Rag Doll and
more! Miss Molly must have been sleeping as she never appeared!
Party Bear said he would model the T shirt from HGTV since it matched
his hat and fancy collar! Leave it to him to steal the show! Oh well,
hope they got everyone in the photo as we don’t want any hurt feelings!
We got soap by Favorito,a bright pink cork screw from Junk Gypsies,
Hermann’s in Brenham donated a tissue pack, HGTV gave us a T with the
Junk Gypsies logo, some bubble gum from the Busy B gifts
in La Grange, and then we have a wooden coin for a
free drink from Buffalo Creek in Bellville! So many gifty items!
Royers has a card in there about his Operation Desert Pie which
sends a pie overseas to a soldier… really a nice idea,
and Texas Living magazine gave us a couple issues so we can catch up
on all the happenings in this part of Texas! What fun to be a
photographer for them, that I would love! Rachel gave us a
“hot off the presses” Idea Map that will be fun to hang for inspiration!
There’s even a package of coffee from Independence Coffee in Brenham
Mimi Bella, Beau’s Best soap in Round Top donated a teeny, tiny bar
of Lavender soap that smells so good you could just eat it! And finally
we each got a box of zip lock bags called Tili Bags, each decorated in
a different pattern so easy to distinguish one from another, great
for travel, etc!
Whew! I don’t know if the animals will ever recover from such a fun
party! They may want to take a road trip down to the Prairie just to see
for themselves what all the fuss was about!

Texas School … simply amazing

Texas School is over, but not the memories!
At the closing seminar this morning after receiving lots of door
prizes by many in the audience, Arthur Rainville, gave a story about
never giving up! He played a tear jerker video, and not a dry eye was
in the house! He ended his story with the advice to “Simply Amaze”,
and since we are all so passionate about our craft, I think it was a
great end to a wonderful week!

bebe Chloe

Last week i had the chance to photograph a precious, 2 month old baby at
her grannies house in Frisco. What fun we had dressing this little one
in lot’s of different outfits! Here is one quick photo i couldn’t resist
turning into a piece of art, as i have been busy and a little delinquent
finishing up their photos, as i have been shooting this week for
the Dallas International Film Festival. Not sure if folks like to see
their kids turned into art or not, but she sure looks pretty! Deanna
and I hit it off as we both collect so many of the same things! It was
tons of fun, and i look forward to watching little Chloe grow!
