Over His Head: Texas Child Photographer

The I Heart Faces theme is “Over My Head” and it took a little while to get inspired.  I thought through some of the cliche shots then some more labor-intensive shots before settling on this idea.

This is my almost four year old, Tristan, and only some of the toys that watch over him as he sleeps.  Even though he has the entire floor to play, his Happy Meal toys wage wars over the coveted spots on the headboard.  The dinosaurs, lions, robots, and bad guys wait in the cubbies until he decides a happy meal toy needs to be demolished by the plastic jaws of T-Rex or the super kick of a Ninja.  When he’s finally ready to fall asleep, he likes to line them up so they watch out for the monsters and other things that go bump in the night.  And that’s how you know which toys he loves most, by which ones are right over his head.

S Family: Harker Heights Family Photographer

I met the S Family at Hagan Stone Park on Friday for some family pictures.  I’ve known Mama S since we were little and it’s hard to believe we’re grown with our own kids.  The kids were so cute and we had so much fun. 

Thanks S Family!  Hope you enjoy your photos!

Kernersville’s Independence Day Parade

This morning we headed out to see Kernersville’s Independence Day parade.  It’s not a huge production like the Christmas parade but I liked it.  I love the small town feel of everyone and their dog out in lawn chairs, shouting out first names as floats go by.  I like to watch Tristan’s face light up when people return his wave and especially when they throw candy.  I think my favorite is the bands.  I love hearing the drums as they march.  Maybe it’s because it’s a talent I’ll never possess since I have no sense of rhythm.

I think I also love the unity that the independence Day parade brings.  The red, white, and blue in the floats along with the clothing of the spectators.  It’s one of the few happy things that brings people together as Americans.

Enjoy the pictures  and have a fun and safe 4th of July!
