Frisco, TX Senior Photographer bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog! This is a place to showcase my work at Keri Doolittle Photography and share a bit about my family. We recently moved to Frisco, Texas after living 4 years in Colorado. We are adjusting nicely to the Texas lifestyle and I am excited to start photographing local seniors. I am now booking Class of 2014 and Class of 2015 high school seniors. Please visit my website to inquire about senior portrait packages and pricing. Thank you for following our little 'ole blog from Frisco, Texas.

FC Dallas Meet The Team night!

Tonight was Meet the Team night for FC Dallas season ticket holders.  Not only was their food, entertainment, photo booth, autograph sessions, but we also were invited to watch the English Premier team Aston Villa practice.  They will be playing FC Dallas tomorrow evening for an international friendly match. The kids were very excited to meet the players.  Their most anticipated player was Richard Sanchez because they got to race against him at the Perot Museum.  He asked the kids if they beat him (they did not).  All of the players were very friendly! Go FC DALLAS!FC Dallas Photographer

Oregon Coast 2014

After our stay in Colorado, we kept on traveling west to the beautiful state of Oregon. I hadn’t been to the OR coast in FOREVER!!  Maybe 20 years?  So, it was nice to be back in the beautiful PAC NW.  The boys were in awe of the trees and driving through the forrest.  For them, all they have known is the desert of Arizona, the high desert of Colorado (although we made multiple visits into the Rocky Mountains) and the flat-lands of Texas.  They had never seen trees so big in their life!  Funny to hear them talk about the nature since I grew up in the Evergreen State.

I am going to attempt to document everything we did/saw while we were there:

Day 1: 5 of the family members needed to depart back to Seattle to be at work, so we only saw them for a brief couple hours, but still managed to get a family picture in of the ENTIRE group!

Day 1, evening:  We had a family “retirement party” concert for my Dad and Kris and hired a local band (Sedona Fire) to come out to the house and play.  It was SO MUCH FUN!!

Day 2: A quick drive up to Astoria to visit the Oregon Film Museum and learn about all the films made in Oregon (especially the Goonies), then a quick trip to Shipwreck Beach at Ft. Stevens. Shipwreck Beach was probably one of my favorite things to see!

Day 2, evening: The Doolittle and Lathrop clan decided to go for a walk in the neighborhood.  I had an assignment from my mom to get a picture of Ry, East, Layne and Lucy together.  :-)

Day 3: A hike through Ecola State Park.  I think we took the “advanced” trail, as we were all huffin’ and puffin’ through the forest while the kids sprinted up a very narrow and muddy pathway.  Later that evening we played an intense game of Bocce ball!! Katie lost her footing a bit at the end of the Bocce game and of course all of us sister’s just decided to watch and laugh.:-)_DSC0147_DSC0151_DSC0165_DSC0176_DSC0182_DSC0183_DSC0207_DSC0209

Day 3, evening:  SMORES by the fire!! Lovin’ my Sony A99 doin’ it’s thang in the nearly pitch dark w/ no flash.

Day 4: Wake up early!! We woke up at 5:15 AM to witness a negative tide and walk WAY out on the sand before reaching the water.  This way our day to get great pics of sea life!  We found starfish, crabs, jellyfish, sea urchins and more!

Day 4, evening: One of the traditions of the rental property my dad and Kris got was to paint rocks and leave them for all to see.  We spent the evening picking out the perfect rock and painting it.  I did a Coug logo (Go Cougs!).  Day 5 consisted of a trip back to Portland to see some Seattle Seahawks on their 12th man tour and our flight back to DFW.  Had a GREAT time, THANK YOU to dad and Kris for renting out an amazing property!  I hope we get to get together again soon!

Waterview Golf Course – Ryland’s US Kids Golf Tournament

Ryland has really gotten involved with the US Kids Golf program lately.  It is a nationwide program that host local, state and national tournaments.  They even have a WORLD tournament that is held in Pinehurst each year…if you haven’t seen the documentary The Short Game, check it out, it is based on that golf tournament.  A few weeks ago, Ryland had a tourney at Waterview Golf Course, which he shot a 48 (9 holes only), which was his best score to date.  He has 2 more golf events this weekend, which will give him his require 4 tournaments to get “priority status”.

Since Mark was his caddy for this round, Easton and I were able to take out the golf cart to get a few pics of his warm-up and official round.  Ryland and Mark must walk the course and can only ride in the cart between holes.

The Sanctuary Wedding Photographer – Brittany and Doug

Over 4th of July weekend, we were honored to be a part of Brittany and Doug’s wedding at The Sanctuary Golf Course.  It is a stunning location, just south of Denver, in a suburb called Castle Pines.  Brittany (and her sister Brooke) were Ryland and Easton’s babysitters when we lived in Colorado.  The boys adored them and they were SO EXCITED to be a part of their big day.  Ry and E got to be the ring bearers!  This was my first time working as the photographer and having my own kiddos walk down the aisle.  It was so fun to see!!  Brittany and Doug had a fabulous wedding party, who were SO MUCH FUN!  They also surrounded by amazing family, which is a blessing to witness.

A huge thanks to my second shooter, Amy with Amy Caroline Photography.  If you are looking to get married in the Denver, CO and surrounding areas, give her a call/email and connect up with an amazing photographer.

Cake is by Intricate Icings.  (I will work on posting the other vendors after doing a little research).

Frisco Senior Photographer – Styled Shoot at Lavon Farms in Plano

A couple weeks ago, I did a styled shoot with my current senior reps at Lavon Farms in Plano, TX.  We were graced by Altar’d State by wearing their clothes!  We got two “looks”…one was a more boho-light type clothing and then, completely opposite, clothing from their bright and vibrant line. We were so blessed and thankful for having them on board for the shoot!  Altar’d State is a faith-based, give-back company, so please go check them out online or at a store near you. Another contributor to our shoot was the lovely Tricia.  She made about 8 different custom jewelry pieces that were AMAZING!!!  Her Etsy store will be online soon and I will make sure to link her up once it goes live.  THANK YOU, Tricia, you have an amazing talent!

Lastly, thank you to my senior reps for going to the fittings and coming to the shoot, I couldn’t have done it without you.  And, thank you to your parents for raising such amazing women, I am excited to see what the future holds for all of you!!
