I love it when someone calls me and says, “I know you are a wedding photographer, but…..”. It usually ends with something like “your style is perfect for our Dallas family and do you offer family portraits” or “we are pregnant and want to have a little something different, do you offer maternity sessions?” I usually take on sessions like this because I really do love all types of photography – no matter what stage of your life you are in. I love stretching and flexing my creative photography muscles. I love to have a “specialty”, but lately I say “specialize in weddings and underwater photography“. The underwater part gets a lot of raised eyebrows and is a great conversation starter. Being a wedding photographer, you actually are specializing in so many photography genres. When I shoot details, I am doing product photography. When I am shooting the family formals, well, that’s family photography (sort of). When I am running from the Church to the reception hall backwards (praying to God I do not bust my buns and break any bones if I fall!), I am doing event photography. Any way you slice it, I just love photography.
Here are some of the family sessions I have been doing lately. I have been really blessed to have a lot of faces repeat offenders on my blog over the years and I am happy to show them to you another time. Better, older, and sweeter than ever. For those newcomers to the site, meet The Ryan’s, The Johnson’s, The Garcia’s, The Krausse’s, and The Coker’s. I love all these faces like my own family!
