LYNN AND HER PUPPY DOGS! | WICHITA FALLS PROFESSIONAL PORTRAITS PHOTOGRAPHER

I met Lynn while volunteering for A Soft Place to Land , and in the spring she contacted me to get some LinkedIn and other professional profile pics done!  She asked if she could bring some of her own pups along for some portraits since she only needed a couple of good ones of herself.  How could I say no?!  We chose a little known park where the trees were blossoming in full color for the spring.  I can't give away the super secret location though..  ;-)

THE GHOSTS OF BINGHAM HILL CEMETERY | WICHITA FALLS GHOST PHOTOGRAPHER

So what happens on your best friend's birthday when you aren't sure what else to do?  On this particular night we decided to visit one of  the most haunted graveyards in the state.  Bingham Hill Cemetery is a place I love to visit just for some random photography shenanegans, especially when my friends are willing to be subjects!  At Bingham Hill many of the headstones have degraded into things that look like nothing but bricks that are scattered about the ground.  But be warned, when you think you're just stepping over rocks, there's a good chance you're stepping over a grave.  Many of the deaths occurred in the mid 1800s all the way up to the early 1900s.  There are countless women and children who died, I am assuming, during a time when the state was riddled with disease outbreaks.  Ghost hunting can be a hobby and is a fun one at that!

LIBRARY FAMILY PHOTO SESSION | WICHITA FALLS FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER


Whenever I am hired as a photographer for my clients, I ask them a series of questions.  The questions probably seem really silly and pointless, but they are not! The questions I might ask are what everyone's favorite colors are, what their style is (geeky, hipster, plain, etc.), where their favorite places to hang out are, favorite foods or desserts, and since it's usually women hiring me, I always have to ask how the dad feels about the photo session (haha, it's not uncommon for dads to be less thrilled about getting in front of the camera).  What these questions help me determine are the best location, best color schemes, what my behavior should be as the photographer, helps me prepare for the lighting and decide on other factors as well.  When The Pechs asked for a photoshoot at the library I was thrilled!  And I am in love with this set!
Wichita Falls Creative Children's Portraits Photography
Yes!  The library, which allowed me lots of awesome lighting and lines to play with!

All this was was the back of a chair which had a moon cut-out in it.  Turned out to be a pretty rad frame!

FEELINGS AND IMAGINATION SESSION | WICHITA FALLS CHILDREN'S PORTRAITS PHOTOGRAPHER


This was a fun set in which the purpose was mostly feelings and imagination.  What do you do when you're scared, Danika?

"How do you feel when you know you're going to get cupcakes?  Do you get really excited?"
"Yeah!!!!!"  She replies.

What about when you are told to clean your room?  Then what?
"Neeyahhhh!"

"What is the best thing to do when you're scared?"
"You just hide your face like this."

"What makes you the happiest?" I ask. Besides her brother, My Little Pony is what made her the happiest.
Wichita Falls, Texas Creative Children's Portraits Photography  

When I asked if her brother could have one of her ponies - this was the response.

She can even wave goodbye with her foot!  Glad we got to enjoy this session together and express feelings and take imaginative pictures!

THE BRICKELL'S FAMILY PORTRAITS | WICHITA FALLS FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

The Brickells ordered a combination of sessions for their one and a half hour session.  They put up with my bad puns and even returned some back to me.  I did not see it coming, haha.  This was one of my favorite sessions to date because the energy was so loving and full of excitement!  Mom and dad love their little one, Claire, and she is a super happy energetic little soul.  And mom and dad are clearly super in love too!

LEVI'S HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR SESSION | WICHITA FALLS SENIOR PORTRAITS PHOTOGRAPHER

This was the winning photo that was used for Levi's yearbook photo!  This session was creative, fun and taken in an urban setting.  Who says senior portraits need to be boring?!
Wichita Falls, Texas Creative Senior Portraits
The pics usually turn out better when I'm making bad jokes or blessing clients with my wide array of anti-jokes and bad puns.
Wichita Falls, Texas Creative Senior Portraits
Oh, hai guise!
Wichita Falls, Texas Creative Senior Portraits
Show us how you really feel about cliches.  Psh.
Wichita Falls, Texas Creative Senior Portraits
Just some cliche portraits to get the set started.

Trains and old creepy train tracks, especially the abandoned variety, are one of my favorite places to shoot!  I'm so glad he suggested this as a backdrop for his senior pics.
