Thanksgiving a time for reflection.

I love Thanksgiving. It's a time to reflect, to look back on the year and to be in a state of gratitude. I recently attended an Anthony Robbins seminar and something I learned was  you cannot be upset if you are in a state if gratitude. It's impossible.  What makes you feel grateful? God? Family? Your pets? Your home? The health of a loved one who battled a disease and won?  The little things? A flower garden? A second chance ? Look wound, reflect instead of dwelling on things out of your control , instead focus on the things you're grateful for. You'll feel a shift, a lightness.   happy Thanksgiving y'all.

God wont ask you these things.

10 Things God Won't Ask When You Die.

1. God won't ask what kind of car you drove. He'll ask how many people did you give a ride to who didn't have transportation.

2. God won't ask the square footage of your house. He'll ask how many people did you invite into your home.

3. God won't ask about the clothes you had in your closet. He'll ask how many did you help clothe.

4. God won't ask what your highest salary was. He'll ask if you compromised your character to get it.

5. God won't ask what your job title was. He'll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.

6. God won't ask about how popular you were. He'll ask how many people to were you a friend.

7. God won't ask about what neighborhood you were in. He'll ask if you were a good neighbor.

8. God won't ask about the color of your skin. He'll ask about the content of your character.

9. God won't ask about the things you didn't understand. He'll ask about how well you acted upon that which you did know.

10. God won't ask about why it took you so long to seek salvation. He'll lovingly take you in his arms and call you his child.

Beach portraits with Sallys beautiful family!

I was so honored to be asked to create some Family Reunion portraits this weekend at Galveston Island for my friend Sally!
We met up at 9 Am and it was a beautiful day As a matter of fact the weather man said the night before that it would be a "GOOD HAIR DAY" with Mild temps and it was!
Im not sure exactly how many members of the family there were, but Sally had told me around 75 total. They were dressed in great colors for a beach portrait (i had sent some clothing suggestions via email beforehand) and they definetly looked great!

I am not finished editing yet but i expect to be complete by Sunday or Monday and so I wanted to give just one sneak peek. What an adorable family!
I live about 90 minutes from Galveston so Im looking forward to doing more of these in the future!

Thank you Sally! It was such fun and everyone was great!

Photo shoot on the 27th floor downtown HOUSTON!

I really enjoyed photographing this precious couple in their luxury high rise downtown Houston.  What an amazing view. This couple is just so precious, i cant say enough good things about them.

Creating a portrait with Floor to Ceiling Glass walls is a challenge. Also trying to balance the ambiet light outdoors with the indoor studio lighting is a challenge, something I learned my 2nd year of Photography School.
I used a light meter and took an ambiet light reading outdoors first and then set my Studio Lighting strobes to be just 1/4 stop higher.  
Using a tripod as well, for the exposure and ensuring my lighting did not reflect off the glass. I am so pleased with how all the images turned out from this session.
It was a beautiful apartment and this couple was sweet to invite me to stay the night in one of the guest rooms.
I look forward to taking more portraits in the Greater Houston area now that I live here! I never knew this city had so much beauty and such gracious people!
