Family Recital at the Cactus

Ok, I am really late posting these. The Craig and Glenda Kitten Family had their annual Family Recital at the Cactus theatre. All of those who take voice from Kami Caldwell sing in this end of the year recital, the only thing is, all of the parents have to sing too!

The Kittens sang “We are Family” and Elliot had his very own line. You know the chorus. Yes, every time he would sing “I got all my sista’s with me!” They all did so great and Craig even did the splits! I can’t wait until next year.

50 Years and Counting

It has taken me quite a while to post these, but I figure maybe if I start posting once a day in the next two weeks I will be all caught up.

I went to Post, Texas to photograph these two wonderful grandparents, 5 kids and 7 grandkids.

We started talking about my being married for 6 weeks and their being married for 50 years and she gave me some great advice that I try to live by. “God first, family second, and your work third. If you live by this everything will work itself out.”

Thanks Diann and it was great to meet everyone. I can’t wait to see you again for your post-design session.

The Kitten Koloche Kitchen

Sunday the whole family came over and we made Nick’s Grandma’s family Kolache Recipe. Actually, we make Leslie and Glenda Kolaches because we found out that this whole time we didn’t have the right recipe!

The dough recipe was hers, but the filling was a little bit different.

We had so much fun! It was Andi’s birthday and we also got to sing to Luke and Janet.

Thanks everyone for letting me have Sunday off. But after being in the kitchen from noon to 11:00 pm and after almost 800 handmade Kolaches, I might need a break from my break!

Shelby and Ky

I have been a little behind on blogging and you will see why after I blog about this weekend!

I photographed Shelby and Ky last Thursday. They will be getting married in December, but don’t worry about the weather, because they aren’t!

They will be married in Hawaii. What a lucky couple. I know it will be perfect, and perfectly them!

Not once did I have to tell either one of them to smile, because Ky would whisper in Shelby’s ear, or Shelby would put her arm around Ky and that is all it took.

Here are a few of my favorites.

Cade’s Newborn Photos

Last Friday I went over to LaShawn and Mark’s house. Yes, I am aware that this post is late, but that is beside the point.

I tapped on the door, and in new mom form, LaShawn waved me in, Cade in tow. He was sleeping peacefully in her arms. He is such a wonderful baby. I stayed for a long time after the shoot and held him. I think he likes me, if I do say so myself.

I can’t wait for our 3 month shoot!

Here are some of my very favorites. To view all of my favorites, Click Here. More will be posted after this sneak peak.

Fun with Photos

We are half way through the second week of classes at Texas Tech. Hopefully my 3310 class understands how to use the most important buttons on their cameras. Tuesday we stepped out of the class and practiced a bit. While they shot stuff, I shot them. I decided to play with the pictures in Photoshop for 30 seconds each to see what I could do.

Here are a few of my students…
