Blog Post 8.18.12 (Son & Baby Photo)

I love technology!  What would we do without our smart phones? When you just don’t have your camera with you and you just have to take a photo these smart phones really come in handy!! I went to see my new grandson (my son’s baby) and I had to photograph their interaction.  It’s just so sweet! I love this photo!!! (Next time I need to remember to take my big Canon!!) 🙂

This was taken with my Evo, made B & W in Photoshop.

Blog Post 7.23.12 (Dino Paintings)

Inspiration comes from all over!!
I just became a grandmother for the first time, and Mom & Dad wanted to get dinosaur things for the baby’s room. Dinosaur kid things are not that easy to find! Also I decided that he just had to have some original paintings from his grandmother, so I decided to paint a series of dinosaurs. This is one of the paintings from my “Paxton’s Dinos” Series.

I really like the way they came out!  They are playful & bright!
I decided I will sell prints of them, since the originals obviously belong to Paxton!  I will be posting the series on my website shortly with prices for the prints.

I did giraffes a few months back that came out really cute also…

This got me thinking about making different animals also, so I will have a whole children’s line of paintings!  Stay tuned!

Photo Post 7.27.11 (Cow Parade Austin)

I got to check out the amazing cows done by some local Austin artists for Cow Parade Austin.  CowParade Austin is proud to partner with the City of Austin and the Children’s Medical Center Foundation to benefit Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas and Superhero Kids Fund.  You can go see them right now at the Long Center (not sure how long they will be there).  I got to photograph almost all the cows, but I realized I missed one of my friends cows!  I have them all posted on my Facebook page (and will add my friends cow when I get the photo! 🙂 )

Here’s a few of them!

Daily Photo 12.10.10 (Carnival at Night)

My daughter and I went out tonight to shoot some carnival photos.  Also a chance for her to learn her new Canon 50d.  We went armed with my tripod and an extra lens and got some good stuff!  I think this is one of my favorites.

Daily Photo 7.20.10 (At the Pool)

This has to be one of the cutest most photographed little boys ever! (yes, his mom follows him with a camera also.)  He came over to hang out and swim at the pool.  I love photographing little kids.  They are just being themselves, so if you are willing to spend a little time and take quite a few shots you will get amazing photos, just about every time!

Daily Photo 7.17.10 (Kids Photos)

I love photographing kids!  I guess it comes from following my own kids with a camera when they were little.  My daughter said that I was getting her ready for when she would be famous, so she could handle the paparazzi! 🙂  I took these photos at my niece’s son’s birthday party.
