Tulips in the Spring

Colors that brighten up the days

Y’all, flowers aren’t just for girls. Mr. S had the best time exploring the flowers. I recently went back looking at photographs of my sweet little ones, who are pretty old now. I can remember the stress of the every day life that exists when you are surrounded by little ones. It is beautiful and exhausting at the same time. But now that my kiddos are older I actually long for the days of  hearing ‘momma’ all day long. I know that growing up happens but it shouldn’t have to happen so fast. It may sound like this would be self promoting and I don’t mean it to. But y’all preserve those memories. They grow up so fast.

4 Years In…

June 1st is my birthday. My business birthday that is.

I would like to thank all of my wonderful friends and clients and clients who are now friends. It is because of y’all that I am where I am today! June 1st is my birthday. It is my business birthday. I have officially adopted that date as my start of business. A few of you know that before 4 years ago I also had a full time job while running my business. But circumstances came up that provided me the opportunity to take that leap. And I am so blessed with the outcome! But with growth comes a few changes.

.

So what is changing?

Everything. Well not everything. Let me tell you a short story but first let me ask you a question. How many of you, my wonderful clients/friends, have a usb that I have made or a downloaded link that I have provided you and it is sitting in a drawer? Or on the computer? How many? Honestly I can raise my hand too. I print a lot of images of my kiddos. We have a wall gallery that grows with them. I have a few albums of special moments. But I have so many images that live on hard drives it should be an embarrassment to me.

So back to my story… I was talking with one of my favorite clients and she said she hasn’t ‘done’ anything with her pictures yet. But plans too. Y’all, this is where I have failed you. And I want to make it up to you! I have failed you at the core of my promise to create art for your home. Now I know that might scare you… You might be looking at your screen and saying but I want digitals. Did you know that every print you purchase includes a digital copy? Did you know that any album I create for you includes a digital copy of the images inside that album? The same goes for my mini albums, wall art, gift portraits, collages, metallic, acrylics, metal prints, coffee table books.

.

So what does this mean for me (well for you)?

Viewing and ordering appointments. I know we are all busy so these will be custom to YOU. Whether you would like to meet in a coffee shop, at your home, or at my home. Current and travel clients even can connect their appointments by Skype and by phone because they understand the process already.

.

Oh great now she is going to pressure me for a sale.

Nope! I don’t want to pressure anyone into anything. But I will help guide you to what you want. And get it done for you. Y’all are busy and do not need the burden of ordering prints or albums. That is my job! I will take on that burden for you.

.

But what about Mini Sessions and Limited Edition Sessions? Are they going away? Will I have to do an ordering appointment?

They aren’t going away! I love them, y’all love them. Yes we will do a consult for your ordering. I know my wonderful busy mom clients might need a break, so how about a coffee shop date to view your gallery! My newborn clients already know that I love snuggling the babies while they view their galleries.

I will also be adding a few new kinds of sessions that will be personalized to YOU! Lifestyle sessions, documentary sessions, and childhood magic sessions. Do you want an elaborate themed cake smash? Or to create a magical birthday milestone session? These are coming y’all!

.

I don’t want to do that at all.

That’s ok. I want to spend my working time creating art for your family. I want your kiddos to be able to see their pictures on their walls. I want their self esteem to go up because they pass by their beautiful pictures every day. I want them to be able to look at a newborn album of them when they are 4 or 5 or the weekend before they graduate high school.

.

Thank you again for reading all of this. While some changes take a little while to make, these will go into effect on June 1st. These changes might look scary but they aren’t. I promise.

Three Reasons You Should Fall In Love With Tulips

Dallas Newborn and Children’s Photographer | Tulip Farm Sessions

Those of us in Texas understand that winter can be anywhere from 1 week to 3 months. The wonderful owners over at Texas Tulips have brought the best way to jump start Spring in Texas with their tulip farm. Why should you love the tulips? It is a pretty far drive to get to them. It is so worth the drive though. Here are my top three reasons why you should fall in love with the tulips in Texas.

1

It marks the beginning of spring. The official beginning of spring. In the last few years the tulip farm begins blooming in mid February into March. By mid February North Texas is usually either still a little chilly or already warm. This year it was pretty warm. When we went out for our photography session, the weather was perfect. A little chill in the air but the sun gave us such warmth that it was perfect.

.

2

It is a day trip that your entire family will love. Y’all my 13 (yes I said 13) year old son still loves going out to the tulip farm and looking around. The varieties are one of a kind. I never knew there were that many kinds of tulips. Our favorites include the ice cream tulips and the fire tulips.

.

The tulips are photograph beautifully. I cannot tell you how magical the tulip farm can be. The rows of color that, like I said earlier, bring life into the beginning of spring. Spring marks a wonderful photography season for me. It starts so many things I love like bluebonnets and wildflowers. For little ones like this cutie who was practicing her standing in the tulips what better place to capture the adventures into toddlerhood. My sessions in the tulips are favorites.

Dancing in the Tulips

Dream sessions in the Tulips

Oh my blog. Y’all I haven’t blogged in a while. And I am going to make up for that NOW. So here is the heads up apology for the upcoming onslaught of blogs. So this year the beautiful Tulip farm at Texas Tulips was better than ever. We made the long trek up there a few times. Y’all it was worth every photograph taken. Dancing in the Tulips and running around the farm was so much fun. Sweet E ran up and down the aisles. Looking at them while I photographed her adventure.
