Thrilled to photograph this simply stunning teen in Florida this June. She was sweeter than Florida sweet tea (and WHOA it’s sweet!) and just such a natural beauty. Her golden hair blew in the beachy breeze as we talked about her plans for the future (loves to dance) and explored the gorgeous setting. A perfect afternoon!

I’ll let her portraits do the talking…

Hope you’re having a spectacular day!

Let’s REWIND to the beginning of the summer… | Colleyville & Southlake Family Photographer

Friday, August 19th, 2011

So, pretty much the summer has flown by and YUP, I’ve been a terrible blogger!  We’ve been vacationing AND when we’re not away, I’ve been shuttling the pumpkins to various camps around town.    And believe it or not, I’ve actually been having some sessions in this crazy TX heat!   I seriously can’t believe that next week, I’ll have one in school again…and the other kiddo the following week.  I miss ‘em already.

I’ll be sharing some peeks into our summer, but wanted to put this storyboard up from a *FUN* farm session at the beginning of the summer.

I love tractors.   Tractors and kids = a guaranteed awesome time!

These active cousins kept us on our toes!  It was fun watching them discover together and separately!  The little lady was tentative at first, wanted nothing more than to be holding her grandma’s hand, while her older cousin was off to the races, with a big smile on his face.  They would keep checking in on each other with quick glances throughout our time together — too cute.

I’ll be back SOON — first up, pics from Long Boat Key, Florida!

Have a lovely day,

P.S.  Grandma got this storyboard as a stunning 20×20 Museum Mount (portrait mounted on a 3/4 inch board, ready to hang!) — it looks INCREDIBLE!!!!

*2011 Holiday Mini Sessions* | Maggie McDonald Photography | DFW Phoenix Photographer

Holiday Sessions??!!!  I realize it seems WAAAAY too hot to think about the holidays, but the end of September will be here in a flash, then we’ll all be busy with trick-or-treating…Thanksgiving…and then Christmas!  You’ll be SO glad you scheduled a session and designed your fabulous cards ahead of time!  :)

Check it….  ;)

 

Included with each session are the items clients *love the most* for the holidays:

  • Gift Prints (your choice of an 8×10, 5×7, 4×6 portrait or 8 wallets)
  • Three web-sized, Facebook files (with a small logo) for sharing online

AND

  • Custom holiday cards created for you with your stunning portraits OR 4×6 prints to include in your own cards OR a high-resolution digital file for those that would like to create a card on their own (top two packages).
Add-ons to packages are quite a deal, too (portraits, disc of images, canvas), so send me an email and I’ll fill you in!

And…2011 holiday card choices are currently being designed/purchased.  They will be displayed on the blog in late August/early September.   I always LOVE to give clients variety and can’t wait for you to see this year’s cards!  Gorgeous.

 

If you’ve decided you’d like to reserve a mini session, please email me at maggiejmcd@msn.com and I’ll send you a link to the holiday session booking form. Payment is due at the time of booking (I’ll send a PayPal invoice) to hold your spot.   Last year there was a wait list, so don’t wait too long!

Hope you have a lovely day — I’m excited about the prospect of working with so many gorgeous families again this year and sure hope yours is on the list.  :)

My best,

Maggie

Heat of the SUMMER {August} and NEW WEBSITE Sale!!!

Monday, August 1st, 2011

You read that correctly!  I am actually having a sale for all the DFW peeps that want to brave the heat in the early morning (8ish!) or late, late afternoon (6:30/7ish) for an August session.  I am rolling out holiday session details later this week and there are only a few dates (some happen in early September), SO now would be an awesome time to hop on board for a session at a super discounted price…why not have your HOLIDAY session in August??!!

Details…

OH, and I totally revamped my WEBSITE! (another reason for this August crazy deal SALE!)!!    Stop by, and have a little visit!   I’d love for you to let me know what you think.  :)  I am SUCH a lucky gal to have such gorgeous, creative, colorful, fun-loving clients!

If you’ve been thinking about a session…now’s the TIME!!!!!!    We could have a juicy watermelon, chilly sprinkler, or messy snow cone session!   Can’t wait to collaborate, see old clients and meet some new ones along the way…lemme know soon, as there are a limited number of spots available.

Hope you have a lovely day!
