close up portraiture | dallas lifestyle photographer

last year I was very fortunate to participate in a fantastic my oldest son, Andrew, who just turned four.  he was slightly easier to keep still than my two year old 😉  macro is an area that I struggle with, but I do love experimenting and am happy we got something out of our little ‘session’.  the first is my favorite + since he’s my own I could seriously stare at him all day long.

enjoy! and make sure you hop over to my fellow-texan friend Kelly Garvey’s blog to see her amazing work!!
