Liz + Bill Family. A family session,Texas style, Part I.

When I first dabbled into photography a few years back, one of the first photographers I talked to online was Liz.  She was a budding portrait photographer in Florida and we began talking via Flickr.  We struck up a friendship pretty fast and talked often.  At that time I didn't even photograph people ... I was 100% fine art nature.  Liz was one of the photographers that actually pushed me towards documenting people and for that, I thank her.  All the encouragement I got led me to try it out - which in turn led me to my passion. Liz and I have talked several times about photographing her family - I was honored she wanted me to do it.  But the logistics never worked out.  This time, it did.  She had moved a couple times and ended up in McKinney, just outside of Dallas.  A few weeks back I got to head down to Dallas and shoot a wedding with a friend (I will get to the post later) and told Liz.  Finally, we were able to coordinate something.  And man, did we ever have amazing conditions ... perfect 75 degree weather, clear blue skies and fields of gold.

So here is Liz's family ... Liz, Bill, Sariah, William, Chase, and Samantha.  A wonderful, happy and beautiful family that I'm glad to call friends.
