The P Family {Keller family photographers}

family portrait in Keller Texas photography
Creative sessions ideas are at the forefront of this Keller photographers work; loved photographing this family and their pictures are great!

I can't even pronounce their last name (and I'm sure they feel that way about MY last name...) so just know them as the "P" family. The mom's extended family was in town to celebrate her birthday...and can I just say I want some of what's she's got...she is so young looking and in the 4 or 5 years I've known them hasn't aged at all! So not fair...

They always come up with some cute ideas and this particular family portrait was no exception. This year was all about the cowboy hats, don't they make great props or accessories for photos? What better backdrop to put them against than this western looking location.

Let me help you plan your family pictures and know that Keller family photography is our niche.

The Glass Cactus Surprise Party

Well, I won't say "who" and I won't say "how old" but one of my regular, great customers booked me way back in July for his wife's birthday (it was yesterday...happy birthday)! The party was about two weeks or so ago (I'm so behind right now...) at the Glass Cactus on the Gaylord Hotel property in Grapevine. I had heard about this place and it was great! L, the birthday girl, has a favorite band, the M80's, a faux British 80's tribute band and they were scheduled to play that night, so that's why her great husband picked that night. I am not a dancer - at all - but even I was shaking my groove thing a little bit while I was photographing on the dance floor. The mark of a good band is when you can actually get people on the dance floor and it was full!

So here's a shot of the M80' some great shots of the birthday girl up there singing with them but she may not appreciate me sharing I'll be good and just show the band!

Little Man C {Southlake baby photographers}

I got to meet and photograph this cute little toddler last weekend...his mom is an awesome interior designer in Southlake that I have photographed homes for, but this was the first time I photographed her family. Mom's gorgeous and her son inherited her looks obviously! He was so observant throughout the whole photo session it made me chuckle; very much observing and analyzing what was going on. It was wonderful that he was a very good sport about it all, I think he approved of it his portrait being taken. Grandma came with him and mom and got him to smile for me...but she informed me later that when they were in the car on the way home he was grinning from ear to ear...isn't that always the way? lol

I referred to him as a toddler above but he's actually only 7 months old, a baby really...already crawling, climbing and standing up...I suspect he will be walking by 9 months. I think he's got places to go and people to see and is ready to get on with it!
