Family Portraits | Shelley Edwards Photography

My goodness. Has it really been 5 months since I last blogged? Seems I spend more time on Facebook or Twitter. Sure would be nice if they could somehow be inter-connected. You know – update one – update all.

Last weekend I decided to go out and take family portraits. It’s been so long since I’ve taken “professional” portraits of my children. Yes, I know – bad photographer. We picked the Stockyards for our location and it was such a pretty day. We ate at the LOVESHACK – they have such great burgers. YUM!

It was a beautiful day – very blue sky.  It wasn’t too hot or too cold – it was just right.  The kids were dressed cute and ready to smile for me.  We had one problem though – the wind.  OMG – it was so windy.  You know what that means right?  Wind + Stockyards {cow/horse smell} = allergy attack.  Daniel and Sara were smart – they took some Zyrtec before the shoot.  Cameron didn’t.  She sneezed so much that her nose bled.  She was miserable.  Unfortunately, we had to cut the shoot short.  I couldn’t even talk her into just shopping around.  You know that girl doesn’t feel well when she doesn’t want to shop.

Here are a few that I was able to capture before we called it a wrap.

I think we’ll have to do our session over – I just didn’t get to hit all my favorite locations at the Stockyards.  So get ready Daniel and Cameron (you too Sara) – Family Session part II coming soon!

Where’s Shelley | D/FW Photographer

OMG – has it really been since September since I last posted on my blog?  Well, actually, it has been.  Why?  I’ll tell you why.  I’m lazy.  Most of you know that I spend time on Facebook, so I’m pretty current there.  However, shame on me for not posting on my blog more frequently!!!  I seriously can’t believe how bad I’ve been.

Things have been going VERY well – I totally can’t believe we’re at the end of 2009.  I had a fun photoshoot this past weekend with a GREAT group of ladies.  They’re about to launch something BIG, but I cannot say.  I’m sworn to secrecy.  Those of you that work with me know that I can keep a secret – so don’t even try to get this one out of me.  I’m so excited that I was able to play a small part – these ladies are amazing!

I’m able to share some of the image I took – just a teaser you know.
