The Lindsay Family

Meet the Lindsay family.

I love them....LOVE!  This is the second time I've gotten to photograph them and I'm thrilled about that.

They are real.
They are hysterical.
They are a blast.

You don't have to wonder what anyone is thinking because they put it all out there.  Diva remarks are met with good-hearted comebacks.  There is lots of cracking up.


There are several pictures from this session that aren't necessarily blog appropriate, but made me literally laugh out loud when I was editing.  Anything around becomes an impromptu prop....anything!

It's like watching a sitcom and it's the best.

They are a normal family with lots of love for each. That makes them the perfect clients for me. :)

Lisa, Texas Tech Graduate

This is Lisa.  She's graduating from Texas Tech.  How exciting!

Is there a bigger, individual accomplishment in the world?  I think not.

I met Lisa when we were both in Spanish together at Texas Tech.
We turned a bad situation into a sweet friendship.  (How do you say ugh in Spanish?)

We teamed up every time we were given the opportunity to work in groups and did our best to overcome our Texas accents and enunciate those Spanish words.   (We also complained about our life issues to each other on our walks to the BA.  And I learned that she walks fast.  Really fast.  Good times.)

When she called me to ask if I would take her senior portraits, I was thrilled to get back together with my buddy.

And of course, since she is graduating from Tech, where else would we go for her session?

Trevor, Noah, and Hunter

I LOVE this silly shot.  Hunter (in the middle) calls this his atomic booty shot.  So funny!

Mom Laura contacted me about needing some portraits of her three, fun boys. 

I have to admit.  I was a little nervous.  (Ok, more than just a little.)

I'm a girl mom.  I have five daughters.....and.....Because, Laura was worried that her boys wouldn't cooperate because she admitted that she tortured them with pictures when they were small. :) 

She was wrong.

They were darling.  They sat in the sweet poses that I asked them to without fussing.  As a matter of fact, they were cooperating so well that I decided to get some sweet, lovey shots for mom and they didn't complain about that either.

Such. Sweet. Boys!!

On the way home, they told mom that they had so much fun they wanted to do it again.  I'm thinking that's because they got to explore a rock and dirt mound after the session.   Of course, that will be our secret.  I can't go ruining their street cred by telling people they enjoy hanging out with a girl photographer.
