  • I love photographs. I just do. And I love making people laugh. So that is what I do, I take photographs and I make people laugh. I don't strive to make my clients look like someone they aren't, or photoshop an image into something that isn't real. I don't want my images to look like those in a magazine because the people in magazines don't even look like those people. And that's fake, and who want's to remember fake? I want Real. Authentic. Emotional. Happy. And in the moment.

    My clients aren't clients, they may start that way but they become more, they become my friends, my families, and a part of my life, And I love that. It's what I want. My clientele is a exclusive group, we have a special dynamic and that is what we capture. We would love to have you join us.

Sweet Baby Reid is already a month. Boy, that happened fast… the days go so quickly and well, the nights….

Honestly they take a little longer.

But he is a happy baby, and Madison and Jacob seem to have accepted him into the pack with minimal hazing.

(A plus for this tired momma!)

And he seems to have taken to his role as muse and coworker in this very small cubical quite well,

so I can’t complain!

I just can’t believe that it has been a month already.

It was a hard go finding bluebonnets this year in the north part of the metroplex.

But luckily one of my clients had a backyard that looked like this.

It made me all happy and giddy as a photographer.

I actually at one point had to stop myself from doing the happy dance, which looks a lot like a fish that has been caught and is flopping around in a boat.

That being said, this little guy made my job pretty entertaining this past weekend.

I do enjoy a beautiful field and a spunky little guy.

Back from maternity leave, and frankly just pregnancy leave.

Not the easiest pregnancy but the transition to three has been pretty awesome. Now, we are throwing work into the mix.

(if anyone has tips on how to work a full time job from home and have three coworkers under 4 years let me know!)

Back to the work of editing, blogging, shooting, and hiring an assistant… I need to schedule that first interview…

And I am hoping to add a few more personal posts here and there on my page.

And I am going to have a lot to blog about!

New baby, new house… decorating the new house, new studio, moving to a new city, living in a VERY small apartment with the three kiddos and the hubs.

(12 months in 5 more to go!)

I would love for you to follow along, and when needed book a session.

Happy wednesday y’all. And I hope to see you very soon.

How to choose your family photographer | Laurie Endsley Photography

How to choose your family photographer | Laurie Endsley Photography

Oh, this is big. Huge even. It’s that time of year again, or its been a year or its been… never and you have decided that family picture need to be taken and they need to be done right. So now the hunt begins! Finding you family’s professional photographer.

The first thing now-a-days that people do is to hop on Facebook and update their status with “Who knows a photographer?” This is a semi scary way to go about looking for a photographer, since anyone with a camera can claim to be a pro and now one is the wise until you get your images back.

I want to help give you some power in finding the right one for you.These are a few simple ideas to keep in mind when hunting for the perfect photographer.

1.     Asking around is a great way to start. See what I did there? You thought I was going to tell you that you were wrong! But you’re not. I mean word of mouth is how most photographers stay in business. So ask your friends and family. Scroll through their pictures; see what they have up in their homes.

2.     Once you get the list of names, don’t ask for the cheapest just because it’s the cheapest. The cheapest might be the best of the bunch, but that snowball rolls nicely down ether side of the hill and you may end up getting what you pay for. Look for the best you can afford.

3.     Gather the names and go to their Facebook pages, go to their websites. Read what the photographer has written, see what they have shot, Ask yourself, do I like their style, do I like their edits? These are important questions. If you are not in love, then go on to the next one.

READ THEIR ABOUT ME SECTION! It is the easiest way to see if you will like their personality.

4. Look at their work, is it consistent? Do you like it?  If they shoot a lot outdoors and you want an indoor session, or if you like soft vintag-y  images and theirs are all bright and bold you may want to keep looking. Look past the first page, look at the categories on the page. Check out their facebook page, what do they post? Most likely they post the images that they love the most, this will give you a great feel of what their work looks like and what you can expect.

5.     Next, most photographers usually offer packages and/or prints. Most of the time it is listed on their website, look and see what they offer. How are you going to display your images? What sizes do you need? You are going to print them right? Please say yes…. Art is meant to be displayed not stuck on a cd in a drawer.

5.     Check out more than one. Check out multiple pages on each site. Make sure you really like what you see.

6.     Contact the photog and book! Many photographers book months ahead, particularly with weekends. I can be booked up to 4 months in advance, so the sooner you pick a date and time the better.

7.     Rock your session!

Shooting Glitter- Laurie Endsley Photography

Third Day of being Iced in, in Texas and I feel like I should be doing something productive. We have made cakes, cookies and bread…

 I actually change the sheets on the beds without complaining and

I thing my hubs has had more home cooked meals in the past three days than he has in the past three months… but hey its been busy season!!

But I thought I would right a quick tutorial on shooting glitter for all of you who wanted to do something festive for New Years….

I have had shooting glitter on my bucket list for a while now, so when I found a little friend who was game I said “Let’s do it!!”

For a starbucks Coffee cake and hot chocolate I got to check it off my list and hang with on of the funnest little humans I know.

You see lots of these shots but let me tell you what I did so that you can recreate!

First what you don’t want to do is pic a day when it is 28 degrees out, because its cold and you want to move really quick to get make in the heated car…

Second I set my camera to f 1.4, 1/800s, ISO 125 (Nikon D600 with a 500 1.4mm)

And then had my buddy just blow!

Pretty easy right?

I chose to use cake decorating glitter that I got at Homegoods, since I was worried about how close she had it to her mouth and inhaling.

I would definitely suggest this for younger kiddos as you never know what they are going to do with the glitter and might think licking it is fun.

I also chose to turn her from the camera and away from the raising sun so that the gold glitter would stand out against the back ground.

That was just a little artistic bit for myself. 🙂

Either way, I love how these turned out and have every intention of using glitter a lot more in 2014

Cheers and happy Sunday y’all!
