Yes, We are celebrating! And we want you to join us.
It might surprise you to find out that I’ve never popped a bottle of champagne. How is that possible? Well, photographers are always photographing the person shooting that stream of happiness across the room. (I am very good at dodging that cork)
In honor of Texas Tradition Photography’s 25th anniversary, I decided to try something new. Thank you to my friends Sandy and Kevin for helping me pull this off. Sandy from Sandra Lynch Photography guided me in opening the bottles (it took two) and captured the craziness as it unfolded. It was quite entertaining watching my hilarious attempts to make the champagne spew. And also a big thank you to my friend Kevin from Stuff in the Ruff for creating an amazing winter wonderland background out of my plain brown door.

So did I! Back in the olden dinosaur days, (pre-digital) A photographer had to run down to the local professional photography store to purchase film. Then they had to take their time creating amazing images. After the session, they took the film out of their camera and sent it to the lab for processing and proofing. When the proofs came back, about a week later, we met with the client, showed them the proofs and then placed the order. If there was a hair out of place or a trash can in the background, it was fine. The image was finished at that point.
Fast forward to digital. No, we don’t have to pay for film or processing. We don’t even have to wait to see the image. It instantly appears on the back of the camera. However, we do have to have a super fast computer to accommodate the huge files and our huge processing and editing software. And since we don’t have a limit on how many frames we can take per roll of film, we tend to over shoot. Our mindset has shifted to “I’ll fix it in post” . So after our session, the photographer, herself, has to process the images through lightroom and prep them for viewing and ordering. This process requires an additional monitor for the client to view the images. So, in addition to this extra time for the photographer to prep your “proof” images, once your place your order, the photographer now has to “fix” all the small details to make the image perfect.
Personally, I would not go back to film. Digital has opened up so many wonderful doors for photographers and consumers. But, once you are able to understand how digital photography has changed the game for professional photographers, you can maybe understand their hesitation when you need just that one image by tomorrow. It takes more time than you think.

YES! It could! If you are a long time follower of Texas Tradition Photography, then you are aware that last year was our first time in 15 years to NOT do Santa portraits. This was a VERY hard decision for us to make, however sometimes we have to take a step back in order to move forward.
I felt that our children’s portrait offerings were become a little tired… stale… boring…etc. And for us in the creative world, this is never a good feeling. I either want to give you 100%, or nothing at all. I took the year off from Limited Edition sessions to brainstorm and survey and find out exactly which road I wanted to take with my children’s portraits. My biggest goals are 1. to make it easy for my parents 2. make it fun for the kids and 3. make it exceptionally creative and unlike anything offered in my area.
There are hundreds of photographers in Dallas and I don’t want to mingle in with the crowd. I want to stand out. And I know YOU will benefit from the year of waiting! Here is a little peek of what’s on the horizon. Just to give you a little taste, this set will be designed for kids ages… sitting up to about 8 years old. However, I think a small family would be cute too.
We aren’t taking appointments yet, but if you’d like to save the date, it will be Thursday November 29 and Saturday Dec. 1st. Yes, two days only! In fact, if you’d like to be put on the waiting list, I will call you BEFORE I announce it! Just fill out the form below to get on the waiting list. More details to come!!
