Susan & Mickey are members at my church; in fact, Mickey is one of our shepherds.  He needed a new headshot for the church directory and for business use.  But they hadn't had portraits done in several years and this was close to their home.  The light here is almost always wonderful, whether morning, mid-day, or evening.  In this case, we were working about an hour before sunset in late March.  So it wasn't terribly warm and, luckily, the locals (aka mosquitoes) weren't swarming around.  Wardrobe had already been discussed at church, so the only decision there was which jacket looked better on Mickey.  Otherwise, these were done fairly quickly and they got some great images for their home as well as an image cube for their daughter.

Using a styled shoot for inspiration http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2018/3/using-a-styled-shoot-for-inspiration I recently participated in a styled shoot for inspiration.  As any artist will tell you, sometimes your eyes and mind need a little reset to freshen up, see things differently, and put some more wrinkles in your brain.

The Carriage House (@thecarriagehouseweddings) in Conroe, Texas, was the venue used and they have a brand new chapel that is just gorgeous and filled with wonderful light.  Here's a few samples:

Working with Jazlyn at Houston Warehouse Studio http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2018/2/working-with-jazlyn-at-houston-warehouse-studio Jazlyn SkyyJazlyn SkyyThis is a sample of what we did at Houston Warehouse Studios (https://www.houstonwarehousestudios.com) the other night and Jazlyn was a joy to work with. Enjoy!

 

That is one of my favorite images working with Jazlyn Skyy the other night.  David Baker Photography reached out and asked if I'd be interested in sharing time as we tried some new lighting techniques.  We both attended a workshop with Joey T Photography, because I firmly believe that the minute you stop trying to learn new things, you might as well stop trying.  Jazlyn was gracious enough with her time and cooperation to work with us and here's a few of the results.

That brick wall is just a great look and it's great that you aren't exposed to the elements to get that look, day or night.

Jazlyn SkyyJazlyn SkyyThis is a sample of what we did at Houston Warehouse Studios (https://www.houstonwarehousestudios.com) the other night and Jazlyn was a joy to work with. Enjoy! That is actually a sliding door behind Jazlyn and it creates a wonderful texture.  And she just rocked this look as well as the title image.  

 

One of the things we were trying to achieve was to keep the detail in her dress instead of losing the small floral prints but also have the light so that her face had some depth and wasn't lit in a flat style.  For the most part, this was done with simply two speedlights shooting through white umbrellas.  Jazlyn's shadow on the wall was minimized, but the lighting on her face draws you to her.

The last one was against a pure black wall on a vanity chair that reminded me of my MamaDot.  This was the toughest because the black was matte paint and just soaks up the light.  Keeping a light from up and slightly behind Jazlyn separates her from the wall.  Again, not wanting to lose any detail in the dress but keeping her face sculpted with the light was interesting.  I love this look and the pose.  The twist of her towards the camera, the smirk, and how the lighting draws you into her gaze.  This one is going to look great when printed.

 

 

To see the rest, simply click on the images and you'll be redirected to the rest of the images with Jazlyn.  

 

One of the things that you won't see here is that Houston Warehouse Studios has great northern light that fills it during the day. It's a wonderful intimate space to work in.  And it isn't the only one in Houston.  There are several great studios available all over Houston run by wonderful photographers.  We have one of the most photogenic cities in the country and the community here is great at supporting each other.  But that's another blog for another time.

Tips for your photo session http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2017/8/tips-for-your-photo-session Last Sunday evening, Sarah, Jon, and I met to do their engagement session.  We had a great time and captured some great images.  It wasn't as hot as it could have been, but we didn't start until a little after 7:00 p.m.  But something that struck my mind as we wandered down the breakwater between the channel and the marina was that Sarah and I had discussed clothing and what to bring.  With all the couples that I've worked with in the past, it seemed to be a good idea to share a few tips for your photo session. First off, comfortable clothing and footwear.  Dresses are great and fine as long as they aren't so short that the wind picks them up too much.  Also, being that a lot of photographers use ground posing, you want flow in a dress or skirt and not being bunched up around your waist.  So my general rule is something that hangs just below your knees or longer.  If the wind catches it, you get a nice flow in the fabric.  Or, if that isn't what you want, clamp a few split shot fishing weights inside the hem to hold it down more against the wind. They're inexpensive, easy to put on and take off, and work very well.

As you can see, Sarah and Jon both opted for boots.  It fit their style and what they're planning for their wedding day.  Besides, we're in Texas and everybody has a pair of boots, right?

Keep in mind where you are doing your session when thinking about footwear.  If we were on the beach, something that you can slip on and off easily and don't mind getting wet is a great idea.  If I do your session on a beach, expect me to be in shorts and hiking sandals to get into the surf.

Benita's maternity session in GalvestonBenita's maternity session in Galveston For Benita's maternity session, this was an idea we wanted to play with.  It was a comfortable fall morning in Galveston and we got there about fifteen minutes before sunrise.  This was one of the last images we took.  When a wave came in, both of us were about knee deep and one of my light stands was just within reach to my right.  But we knew ahead of time that we were going to get wet at some point.

 

Now let's talk about coordinating outfits.  Below are two images of two families, one a Christmas session and the other a summer beach session.   Seabrook family photographSeabrook family photograph Hamm family on the beachHamm family on the beach Both have used blues, but not the same hue.  While it is great to have everybody wear the same colors, it isn't your only option.  While I don't post often on Pinterest, you can get some great ideas to coordinate your outfits.  Here's one link that I found particularly helpful, but you can search and find something that suits your needs.  

https://www.pinterest.com/treenadanylo/how-to-coordinate-clothes-for-a-photoshoot/?lp=true

Last thing on your wardrobe is keep it simple.  Solids and stripes almost always are best, rather than have a plethora of patterns.  I'd say that's true whether for an individual, couples, or family sessions.  It also doesn't hurt to have a second choice of wardrobes.  Any of my high school senior clients are encouraged to pick many pieces and we can mix and match them.  I also bring a changing room for location work, if we're not renting a studio out for their session.

Mother and daughter and why on location http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2017/7/mother-and-daughter-and-why-on-location Jody recent hired me to do a session with her mother/daughter session.  Being that I work on location, we talked about what her daughter liked and what was a convenient place for them and the style that they wanted.  Inside the loop was a factor, so I suggested a unique park near UH.

We started on the stage, because she loves musicals.  Being my wife and I met through theatre in college, I have a soft spot for those myself.  It was an interesting mix of art on the stage and gave a very one-of-a-kind look.

After a few on the stage, there's some great art installations using found materials.

So that was our morning session.  I'd love to create an artistic portrait, whether for home, work, or just something sentimental.

In a few weeks http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2017/6/in-a-few-weeks In a few weeks, Michelle and Matthew are tying the knot and I couldn't be more excited for them.  If you have browsed through the wedding gallery and seen Lindsay and Marc's gallery there, Michelle is Marc's sister and how we met.  Michelle was so pleased that she booked me as well as Vince Blasco (www.vinceblasco.com) for videography.  Below is a few faves from their engagement session and I can't wait to share her bridal portraits that we did in Bishop's Palace in Galveston.

10131013Michelle is the sister of Marc, whose wedding I did previously. (Marc and Lindsay are the couple with the sunrise on the beach.) She loved their wedding album and we did her and Matthew's engagement session a few months later with a "Marry Christmas" theme in Kemah. Being a reading teacher and a love of historic places, we decided on Bishop's Palace in Galveston, Texas, to do her bridal portraits.
Their wedding day was mid-June. The ceremony was at St. Mary's in La Porte, with the reception at the historic Sylvan Beach Pavilion. They were a wonderful couple to work with and I hope that you enjoy browsing their gallery.

Annual Fund Raiser http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2017/5/annual-fund-raiser Every year in August, the Lakewood Church of Christ runs a Back-To-School clothing drive for local families.  School age clothing is donate by members and others in the community.  Breakfast is served beforehand, tickets are given on a first come, first served basis, and about 175+ families are provided for, which means about 600-1000 people come through there in a matter of hours.  They maintain the clothing room year-round and work with local schools, but this is how the whole project started.

One thing that has to be new is socks and underwear.  I mean, really, who wants those used anyway?

They also have an extreme need for jeans in sizes for teens.

So, for all sessions booked in the months of May, June, and July, I'm wanting to help them out and I hope that you do, also.

The first way to help is to donate two items for the clothing drive and your session fee is reduced from $150 to $45.  The two items don't have be the same and I'd recommend a package of socks and package of underwear.  A pair of jeans in teen sizes would be great because we know how rough kids can be on jeans and they don't last long enough to be donated.  Just pick two.

The second way to help is through ordering products.  Twenty percent of all purchases from those sessions will go directly to the clothing room fund for whatever they need.  So you'll be helping out a great cause twice!

This applies to any portrait session, whether it's for professional use, family, a 2018 senior, or just because.

Please share this on any social media you are on.  I'll have it on Twitter and Facebook, so help me spread the word and support a great work!

FNF Coach Magazine cover http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2017/1/fnf-coach-magazine-cover I was called out to this assignment for a new magazine to feature Huffman Hargrave's football coach, Mike McEachern.  While I've been doing sports photos for another company for nearly nine years, this was a little different.

Being late in the afternoon in December, the sun was getting low and making for a lot of contrast.  Since we needed to work quick before it got too dark, I pulled out two of my strobes to help fill the shadows under their eyebrows.  We did about a dozen takes in less than fifteen minutes and came up with this image.

Megan & Chris http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2016/2/megan-chris Megan visited the Houston Wedding Showcase last May and talked mostly with my wife, Rhonda, about her wedding.  A few weeks later, I met her and Chris (on a very rainy evening!) and it was obvious that they had something special between them.  We talked about how they met, their first date, how they wanted to remember their wedding day.

 

Their first date was at the Houston Zoo, so we headed there early on a crisp Monday morning.  At least one giraffe cooperated with us and turned into a poser.

1001The giraffe poserHe just stood there and watched us. We took our time and tons of photos, with one of the last ones going on their wedding program.  It was just on a lark but it so fits them.

So, a few weeks ago, their wedding day arrived.  They had hired an awesome coordinator in Egna and the church they attend is beautiful.

That's just a few memories we captured; there's over 300 images in their (private) gallery.  The album is already started and I'll share that once they have previewed and ordered it.  

 

But I can't say enough about how strong and in love this couple is.  They are a complete joy and I'm blessed to capture their wedding day.

Family photos by Galveston Bay http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2015/11/family-photos-by-the-bay I had the pleasure on Black Friday to meet with the Spicers and do their family portraits.  Being November on the gulf coast, you never know what the weather will have in store, but we got some great images of three generations.

If one of these faces looks familiar, you may recognize Matt.  I did his senior portraits last spring, after a few rain-outs.

 

You can see their family session under my portfolio or just click on an image.  If you need a family photographer who works with you, I'd love to chat sometime.

Being an on-location photographer http://www.bayoucityphotography.com/blog/2015/10/being-an-on-location-photograher Fall is one of my favorite times to photograph.  Galveston is still warm enough to do beach portraits, we get a little fall color in November, and it's time families start thinking about Christmas portraits.  Football season is in full swing and seniors are realizing that they're about be out in the world.

Above is Katelyn and Dakota, and they're special to us.  I did Katelyn's senior portraits a few years ago and now she's getting married this fall.  In fact, two days before my own anniversary.  Dakota is an polite young man and I'm excited for their future.

There will be a featured blog of their wedding afterwards.  But for now, go outside and enjoy our beautiful weather on the gulf coast.  We have tons of great activities going on and beautiful areas to enjoy.
