It Must Be Summer

Wasn’t it just 2 months ago when it wasn’t sweltering, humid heat in Dallas? Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, but I can’t believe it’s already July!

There’s been some good things happening at Pink Dot, but I wanted to tell you all especially about this one for a local modeling agency Kim Dawson . Thanks to them so much for sending me such an amazing job!

Basically, we got to do what we do best and shoot amazing kids all day. Well, actually, for 11 days! For 11 days we were shooting 250 awesome kiddos for the KD kids headbook. I was super excited for this one, not just because of shooting the kids, but I also loved the concept and design of the job. Check this out!

Is that not the best thing ever?

This was an intense job, but when you are working with such amazing talent, you can’t help but have fun.

(: Good Times at Good Shepherd :)

Every once in a while I get to do something totally different and it reminds all the more me why I just love what I do! Recently I had the opportunity to shoot the classes of Good Shepherd Episcopal to benefit their school auction. Check these kiddos out!

I love it! These kids and I had so much fun.

The backdrops were painted by my kids and I. We wanted to do something special and unique that could be gifted to the school, so we painted the watercolors and after the shoot I digitally composited them as the background to the image. Then I had them printed on canvas.

I said these kids had so much fun, and they did of course ;), but I might have had more. Setting up these shots was a joy. I wanted to do something that brought out the personality of each individual and each class, and these guys were totally into it!

I mean, c’mon! They are amazing!

I want to say thanks to Good Shepherd for the opportunity. I also want to give a huge SHOUT OUT to the moms who volunteered their time to help wrangle these amazing kids and keep the shoot moving. This wouldn’t have happened without you!

Last, here’s a little Easter Egg from the shoot, an outtake video showing some of our talented subjects up close and goofing off, as well as some behind the scenes.

Fantastic Foto Friday

Hey everyone! This collection of images comes from one of the most fun tests I’ve done yet. This little girl was a perfect match for our “majorette” inspired shoot, and she pulled it off with ease. Have a fantastic Friday and weekend. Much love from Pink Dot!
