Camargo's Connor

Meet Connor: the most adorable little boy I know from Camargo (okay, he's the only little boy I know from Camargo, but he's still stinkin' adorable!).

The Beauty Myth

Think you'll never compare to those women on the magazine covers & billboard ads? You're right...because THEY DON'T EXIST!

I once attended a workshop which exposed me to all the hundreds of photo retouching (you might just call it "photo manipulation!") that every single person who's ever graced the cover of a modern magazine or ad goes through. It's unreal. I can't walk past the news stands without seeing it now. I wish I had known this as a teenager--that all my expectations about being "beautiful" simply were unrealistic.

Yes, I do touch up my photos, but I was taught never to do too much (you always want their Mama to be able to recognize them!).

I appreciate what Dove is trying to do with these ads. Check out www.campaignforrealbeauty.com (Special thanks to photographer,. Dejah Quinn, for bringing this video to my attention)

Sophie Strikes Again!

She's BAAAAACK! My neice, little Miss Sophie, is already 3 months old! She did good for Aunt Megan & endured lots and lots and LOTS of picture taking over a two day visit. Isn't she a cutie pie?

Update on Holiday Mini-Sessions

The mini-sessions that were once set for Nov. 4th at the Leedey Community Center have been canceled due to scheduling issues. However, I am still continuing the mini-session special for the month of November. If you book a private session at your home or the location of your choice during the month of November, you will get a free 8x10 with a paid session fee (see website for session fee prices-they vary by location).

'Tis the Season...for Seniors!

It's almost the Christmas season (which reminds me, get those holiday sittings booked ASAP!), but not quite. Instead, it's Senior Season & what fun it has been!

This is Bethany from Iowa Park, Texas. We had a lot of fun tromping around old downtown Wichita Falls for her session. It just goes to show you that there are a bunch of interesting places to take pictures, even if it is the most unlikely places!

Not Me...the OTHER Megan

This is Megan S., a senior from Iowa Park, Texas whom I've had the priviledge of watching grow into a great young lady.

Congrats on your upcoming graduation (it will be here before you know it)! I know you will do well wherever God leads you!

Bad, Bad Blogger!

I AM a bad blogger, I'll admit it! It's been a very hectic couple of weeks. Last week, I was back in my old Texas stompping grounds doing some photography work & I've been swamped since.

Hopefully, I'll get a chance to post some pics of the 2 beautiful seniors I photographed in TX. Plus, I've taken pics of a bunch of little fellas (& bellas!) lately that I hope to share.

Until then, here's a pic of my neice, Sophie--just because it's my blog & I can! LOL! It was actually taken back before she was even a month old. I am headed to Kansas this weekend for her 3 month pictures proving, once again, that time really does fly!!!

More Pomp & Circumstance

Meet another Senior Rep from Leedey High: Taryn. Isn't she just a natural beauty? And to top it off, she's a real sweetheart, too!

Soon-to-be Grads: don't put off those senior pics until it's too late! I know the school year can get crazy with activities, so book your senior sitting today.
