My Girls {South Texas Beach Photographer}

My family had the best time this past August at South Padre Island!  I took lots of picture of my girls this time, which is unusual because I generally don’t like to take my camera (usually I just snap a ton of pictures with my phone) out at the beach much unless I’m shooting actual clients…but I’m SOOO glad I did!  I forgot to post them on my blog though, lol!  So here they are!!!

On another note, I am about to close out my calendar for holiday sessions…I have a few spots left for October, and only a few available in November as well.  If you are planning on doing a holiday session with me, PLEASE email me SOON…lindablackwell@rgv.rr.com or message me on FB on my business page Linda Blackwell Photography

M Family Beach Session {South Texas Photographer}

I’m so happy this session happened!  We almost didn’t even attempt it because of the continuous rain the entire night before and the day of…in fact, as we were trying to decide whether or not to make the trip from McAllen down to the island, people were posting videos on Youtube of people using kayaks down the main street on the island!  But this family is always up for anything, which is what makes them so fun, and one of my favorite families!!!  So…. it stopped raining about an hour before this shoot, and started pouring right after we finished dinner!  Hope mom and dad are happy with these…I had a great time shooting them!

Ballet Mini Sessions {McAllen Texas Children’s Photographer}

So my kids have always been my biggest inspiration when it comes to photography…I get ALL of  my ideas by watching them, and photographing them, so it comes as no surprise to me that this ballet idea popped into my head.  Somehow, after 11 years of having three little girls (none of who have been in ballet) I have found myself with 2 out of 3 of my girls in ballet this year!  I feel like I spend all of my time at the ballet studio, and MUCH to my surprise, I’m finding myself LOVING it!  I love the feel of the school, the music, the girls of all ages both seriously training, and little ones just happy to be in their cute outfits… basically the overall atmosphere!   And then the idea came….I would LOVE to photograph ballet dancers in their simple leotards and tights, in a natural dancing environment!  I had a very specific image in my head of what I wanted these to look like, so I took my oldest and my youngest in to the studio the other day and played…my oldest is 11 and just started this year, so she’s not in toe shoes yet, but I still LOVE the way these turned out!

So here’s the deal…I’m offering 20 minute mini sessions this Friday and Saturday (Oct 3 and 4th) at my studio…$175.00 per session…includes a $50 print credit.  Very limited spots available…email soon!!! lindablackwell@rgv.rr.com
