Part of being a professional photographer in Dallas, Texas means every Spring you shoot thousands of beautiful families frolicking and having fun in the bluebonnets, right?
That’s what I thought too. I was ready to deliver the bad news to the late-comers that I was all booked up and simply would not have time to work them in. Barely enough time to eat.
But, outside of a few wonderful clients nobody came knocking. My website never even crashed beneath the digital strain of the sudden and overwhelming bandwidth overload.
And I’m convinced that it’s not for lack of quality. Hey, I’ve taken some pretty good bluebonnet pictures in my time. Just ask around.
True, the flowers haven’t been quite as brilliant this Spring. But, they’re still out there. We can’t all live in Ennis.
No, that’s not it.
My theory is that, for whatever reason, it’s just not as popular as it was a few years ago. I guess everyone is just blue-bonneted out.
Okay, it’s only a little over a week until Christmas and you still haven’t gotten your mother a single thing. You’re stumped . . . dumbfounded . . . stupefied. What do you give the person who seemingly has everything?
An iPad? No, too techie.
A motorcycle? No, too butch.
An XBox 360? No, she’s already got one.
And don’t even think about getting her another Snuggly. How warm and unfashionable does one person really need to be, after all?
No, what she really wants is a picture of the entire family to hang on the wall.
This Christmas, give that special someone a Gift Certificate from Ben O’Neal Photography . . . the gift that will keep on giving for years to come.
Contact Ben O’Neal for details.
I am almost finished working through the pictures of this beautiful family and I just couldn’t wait to share this group of preview images.
The truth is that I am having trouble editing the session down because there are so many “keepers”. They are just so photogenic, it’s almost not fair.
We had so much fun walking the sidewalks and alleys of The Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff.
Are you kidding me? Look at that kiddo – how cute can ya get?
The family will be welcoming a new member soon and they have decided to wait and find out what they will have. I can’t wait to meet the little cutie-pie they call “Dos” . . . as in kid #2.
I had a super fun time getting to know this energetic, adorable family. Their son was all smiles and I know that he is excited about being a Big Brother in the near future.
We ended our shoot near the MHH Bridge as the sun was setting. Fantastic!
