2013 Favorite Images

Its become tradition for me to remember the year in pictures… and to choose my favorites from the year. It’s always hard for me to narrow it down, but here goes what I think is a good list. (There are actually a couple missing from the list – but I’m planning on using them in competition in the Spring, so they can’t be posted yet. :))

From our January trip in Corpus – after 3 years of trying, I finally captured a good image of a beautiful white pelican.

I was on a fairy tale kick this year and Kristin helped me create a Cinderella session…

This summer found me once again shooting for the Grand Prairie Air Hogs. I created this image during one of the games of our star closer.

Allie might as well be a granddaughter – I’ve known her mother since she was this size… and she helped me create this Valentine’s Day themed image.

Allie’s cousin Alicia (who’s mother I’ve known since she was born) joined in on the fairy tale theme… doesn’t she make a great Tinkerbell?

One of my senior clients brought her puppy with her for her session this summer…

Erin is a favorite model (and has been a favorite of the year in the past)… this was created during a Super Monday class I taught for PPA this year.

DJ is one of my kids from the haunted house.. I’ve known her since she was 12 or 13.. she’s a senior this year – all grown up and stunningly beautiful. I think she looks like a young Claudia Black (Farscape, Stargate SG-1) here…

Robert is a senior at one of the Mansfield high schools this year… and we created one of my favorite sports portraits of the year.

This summer I worked on a movie set as the stills photographer. The movie stars Ernie Hudson and Kevin Sorbo, but this image was done of a couple of the kid stars during a sunset filming.

We acquired a new puppy this year and I set out to make sure she was not afraid of the camera… instead, she’s become quite the camera hound (or is that ham?) – loving to pose… and the camera loves her. We did this for Christmas this year.

But my favorite image for 2013 is one I created of my daughter at Texas School of Professional Photography while I was demonstrating my compositing techniques to some of the class. She had this Snow White costume she’d pieced together and we grabbed an apple from my fridge. We dropped in an ominous background in post production and it gave us this…
