Back Yard Water Play [Allen Children’s Photographer]

I love living in Texas.  The temperature was supposed to hit 90 this past weekend (it almost did- was in the mid 80’s).   Since it’s Tax season, my husband works around the clock.  Our community pool was not open yet, so I took out the back yard water toys.  We had a good amount of neighborhood kids here this weekend (mostly rough and tumble type boys) , so I needed to be the responsible parent watching all the kids vs. taking photos.  But then most left, and this sweet girl came over to play.  Girls are so different than boys.  They still ran and had lots of fun, but much quieter and calmer.  I took this opportunity to practice some of my mid day back light shooting with natural reflectors (Thank you DETRA).

  • Adriana - – Jenny these are all so beautiful. What an amgainzly gorgeous mom-to-be. The setting and the processing is like something out of a fairy tail. LOVE theme all (but especially the second one down with all the negative space)!

  • Brooke - Mary, these are gorgeous photos!! The lighting and compositions are great, and I love the moments you captured! Your subjects look very natural, without the phony smiles and poses that so often are typical of their ages. My hat is off to you!!
