Stay safe when taking photos. {College Station Photography}

This morning I was driving along highway 6 when I saw them...

The first bluebonnets of the season. 

Rumor has it, all the rain we have had this year is going to serve us with a killer bluebonnet crop.

Bluebonnet season for College Station Photography is HUGE time for family portraits but every year, I cringe when I see families pulled over on the highway squatting in the wildflowers to try to get a good shot. I cringe 100x more when I see that they have toddlers who could so easily slip away and run into the road. 

So it has inspired me to highlight some of my favorite safety issues when it comes to family or children's portraits. 

1. Railroad tracks. 

Just say no to railroad tracks, please. This issue hit close to home 2 years ago in 2017 when a 19 year old, pregnant Navastoa resident was struck and killed posing for a photographer on a set of railroad tracks. You may think that you will hear a train coming in time to move, but I am here to tell...

I LOVE that drive in your drawer!

Hey there Bryan/College Station!

You remember the last time someone came over to your house and said, "OMG I LOVE that thumb drive in your drawer. What photographer did you use? They must be amazing!"


The other night my Father in law sent me the most incredible photograph. It was take in in 1982 and my husband as a baby was sitting on his lap in the MOST fantastic clash of wardrobe, hair and glasses you could ever hope for. It was glorious.

He found it when he was cleaning out a closet and within minutes there were texts flying between various family members all bonding and having a great laugh from across the country.

So what I want you to understand here is that I am not opposed digital images. The ability to text these images back and forth came from the advent of digital imaging technology, but I PROMISE you, that this moment was brought you you by: the old school paper print.

He never would have found this image cleaning out an old hard drive. He found it cleaning out a...
