Family Shoot

It was a cold and windy day, but this family braved the elements to get some awesome shots! They’ve been in the livestock feeding business a long time, and it just made sense to do the shoot at the feedlot. With Grandparents, kids, and little babies added to the mix, we had lots of fun! I think you’ll agree: these will go down as this family’s heirloom shots.

Senior Shoot

I haven’t had this much fun on a shoot in a long time. This fine young farmer is going to be a Senior! He’s loved farming and ranching since he was a little guy helping his Dad and Grandpa on their farm. He’s such a nice guy, so Moms of girls, he has my stamp of approval! They go to our church, and he’s just one in a million! I know his future is bright.

He wanted a definite rural feel to his pictures, and I think we got that. We took a pig for an evening jaunt, and trucked out to the pasture for some dusk pictures. Awesome!

Best of Luck, Tanner, during your Senior year!

Bridal Shower!

What a great time for a Bridal shower! The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and this young couple is getting married in August!

I’m so very happy for this couple. I’ve watched this beautiful girl grow up, our families have been friends since I was married back in 1983, and her Mom is one of my best friends.  She has found a wonderful young man, and I just know that God has beautiful plans for their lives! It was a gorgeous shower, and we had so much fun watching them open gifts that celebrate their love. Sweet!

Mother/Daughter shoot

Lake McConaughy is only about 24 miles away, and offers so much for photographers! This lovely mother/daughter asked to have their shoot at Ogallala Beach. Even though it was a little windy, we got some great shots. This little girl will be turning 3 in July, so Mom wanted some portraits updated.

The one of them sitting on the beach was taken with some of my portable lighting, which gives your eyes catch lights and makes you look alive! Awesome! We spent some time splashing in the water, and got some great keepsakes. Isn’t their hair GORGEOUS? What fun this was!

Neighbors

I love this family! They were our neighbors for several years, and they have two young boys, which reminds me of my two boys when they were younger. We have good memories of helping each other out in binds, and it was my true honor to update their family photos.

We had scheduled their shoot for a Saturday evening, but all of a sudden, a bad storm came up and we had to cancel. So, we improvised. We met early one morning, and folks, it was COLD! They were such good sports, though, and we got some phenomenal images I know they’re going to treasure forever. Aren’t these two boys just the cutest cowboys you’ve ever seen?

We had such a good time just wandering around the farm taking photos, and by the time we were done with the shoot, the sun had come up a bit more, and we were all warmer. We made some great memories all in about an hour.

They chose to get the two images below made into metal prints. They are absolutely gorgeous, and I know they’re going to cherish them forever! Metals are stunningly vibrant, have a gorgeous shine, and are almost indestructible. They’re trendy, cool, and will stop every guest who enters your home. The bottom photo next to the bales was made into a brilliant 16 X 20″ metal print. The backside has a standout that makes it easy to hang from your wall, and will appear to “float”. Cool
