I am excited to announce that I have finally built a site just for portrait photography!
Here's a screen shot:
You can check it out for yourself by heading to the main page at https://www.brandithompsonphotography.com and clicking on the portrait link!
Another note.. do you ever feel that sharing what's open on your browser is a bit like sharing the inside of yourself? You can see what I've been doing lately, or the things I do all the time... Here's what's open.. Gmail, info on stock photo sites, Twitter, the top 10 baby name sites, my website, DIY network homepage, vegetarian recipes, reviews on Lightroom 3, Placebo's website, a suggested projector, Blogger and another home remodeling website. Whew!
Tonight we will be heading down to Austin to photograph Delaney and Philip's morning wedding. Sneak peeks will be coming soon!
There is nothing that gets a photographer's heart pounding a little faster like anticipating a session with a gorgeous, creative couple like Sara & Ben. Sara & Ben were married at the Fort Worth Courthouse the week before our session, with only a few people in attendance. Instead of photographing the actual ceremony, Sara wanted to wait and do a fun just married session. That's exactly what we did.
We started our session at the courthouse where Sara & Ben wore the same duds they wore to get married in. Ben's daughter (and Sara's new daughter!) Lauren came along too for some family portraits.
Aren't they a great looking family?
You can see how close Lauren and Ben are.
I loved Sara's nautical inspired shoes!
After we finished at the courthouse, Lauren headed over to her grandparents for some fun while Sara & Ben changed into some gorgeous Scottish outfits.
The light was just delicious.
I was inspired by the romance of their outfits.. doesn't Ben look like's ready to take on the world to protect his fair lady?
These shots had me squeeing outloud, quite literally.
I hope you enjoyed viewing this session as much as I enjoyed shooting it! Have a great Wednesday.
Our last day in Paris was beautiful. The temperature was amazing and we started the day off at the greatest cemetery I have ever been to.. Pere Lachaise. I have seen cemeteries in New Orleans, I have been to the cemetery island in Venice, Italy. They were both beautiful, but Pere Lachaise really takes the cake. It was incredibly beautiful and historic. Not to mention, my favorite author is buried there.. Read on!
Jim Morrison's grave was smaller than I expected.
There were many war and holocaust memorials within the cemetery as well.
And finally, we came to the one I had been waiting for.. (and Brian was excited too!)I truly had a huge fangirl grin plastered on my face as we approached.
Despite the urge to respect the grave stone, it was covered in kisses and writing.
The memorial for the Bastille.
We then headed over to Notre Dame.
Not far from Notre Dame is the smaller Sainte Chappelle, which is famous for it's bright colors and intricate stained glass. It was beautiful but very dark, and very crowded, so a little difficult to photograph.
Later that evening we headed up into the Eiffel Tower. It was a pretty spectacular view.
One last shot as we exited.
Day four was our last day in Paris. The next day we headed out to explore more of France. Those photos will be on the blog shortly!
I know it's been a while since I had a real kitty adoption post - but we've finally got one today! As always, be sure to check with my friends at North Texas Cat Rescue if you are interested in any of these kitties!
Antione was super playful and loving, but that sometimes makes for difficult picture taking!
He was all black except for tiny bits of white on each of his back paws. Really cute.
Thanks for looking and I hope you've all had a fabulous weekend!
I can't even describe how much I love this session! I actually met Meaghan back when I was still in school, and we connected over our love of tattoos, animals and general sarcasm. Now Meaghan and Wes are expecting their baby girl in only a few more weeks. They were completely open to whatever I could come up with for the session, and I love how it turned out!
Sweet and gorgeous!
Meaghan worked it like a supermodel.. even if she might disagree :)
I am crazy for the gorgeous light at sunset..
I can't wait to meet baby Nora, I know she'll be just as awesome as her parents.
