As I edit these family photographs from White Rock Bath House Cultural Center many memories flood my mind. Cortney, Bryan and Bryant were some of my very first clients and I am reminded about the journey in which photography has taken me. I have met so many clients along the way and many of them I am amazingly proud to call friends and loved ones. This is so much more than a job to me – photography is a love and I hope to spill a little of my love in each image I share. Family portraits to them come about once a year and last time marked the first time they drove from San Antonio to spend time with me. I am so honored to have repeat clients like this and those that will make a day trip to have me create a memory of a milestone in their lives. Cortney is a super-creative and inspiring girl, so she was filled with ideas about the session. She brought along outfit changes, hand-crafted props (that she beautifully made) and lots of laughs. As we walked the walk around White Rock Lake, we spotted one of my favorite docks and started to shoot there. One of the VERY kind members of yacht club decided that was not enough for family portraits and invited us in a little further for some more interesting backdrops. One of those was a boat…..it was a happy accident that we were able to shoot a few frames on a boat, but totally worth it. Some from that series really remind me of a Hilfiger ad from shot in the Hamptons or something. She even held my reflector for me and offered us food and drinks. Dallas people are so cool. I love living here. Enjoy this set of some of my favorite friends and clients – see you next year, Cortney, Bryan and Bryant!!
