“A” is Two Years Old! {Dallas Child Photographer}

This sweet girl has been in front of my camera since she was brand new and I’ve loved watching her grow into the precious little two-year-old she is.Β  A bit shy at first, she quickly warmed up to me and we had a beautiful sunset session.Β  Thank you again “P” family!Β  I can’t wait for “A’s” baby sibling to get here and to continue photographing your growing family!

My Wild West Adventure {West Texas Part 2}

I’ve lived in two other states besides Texas and one thing is for sure – there is absolutely no place like home.Β  I’m one blessed Texan and proud (like most of us born and raised here) to say so.Β  I love that our great state has so many different landscapes, that the people are the friendliest you’ll find, and our history is so very rich.Β  After finally seeing the great plains and desert of the west (you can view part 1 of my Marfa, Big Bend and Alpine trip here), I can say that I’ve experienced every landscape and region of the Lone Star State and appreciate them all.

John Steinbeck pretty much sums it up…

β€œI have said that Texas is a state of mind, but I think it is more than that. It is a mystique closely approximating a religion. And this is true to the extent that people either passionately love Texas or passionately hate it and, as in other religions, few people dare to inspect it for fear of losing their bearings in mystery or paradox. But I think there will be little quarrel with my feeling that Texas is one thing. For all its enormous range of space, climate, and physical appearance, and for all the internal squabbles, contentions, and strivings, Texas has a tight cohesiveness perhaps stronger than any other section of America. Rich, poor, Panhandle, Gulf, city, country, Texas is the obsession, the proper study, and the passionate possession of all Texans.”
― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
