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.

My night with Elton John and Billy Joel.

I just had to blog about the AWESOME concert I saw last night. Elton John and Billy Joel. I am AMAZED by their talents. These two can JAM…I mean, they are older gentlemen who can play the piano like nobody’s bizness and can sing with the best of them. I have a college friend who reminds me a bit a Billy Joel…Brian, if you are reading this, you need to be on stage, brother! Billy Joel even busted out some dance moves (they looked A LOT like my Dad’s dance moves).

Just to let you all know, there are several things that get me teary-eyed. One of them being the two talented men I saw last night in concert. Another is when Cal Ripken hit a home run in his last All-Star appearance at Safeco Field, when Paul Allen raised the 12th-Man Flag at Qwest Field, when the Saints won their first play-off game after Hurricane Katrina (who dat, Brandi!), when the Seahawks won the Championship game to get into the SuperBowl, and watching athletes cross the finish line at a marathon. I have been fortunate enough to see all these things in person and if you have the opportunity to witness stuff like this, DO IT…Carpe Diem my friends!!

I was just so inspired by their talents, I sang all the way home. That is also why I love my job. Sometimes I get emails from people saying that I am their inspiration…what a honor! Seriously, that is the best thing in the world, what a compliment, thank you!

Well, since a photo blog is pointless without any pics, here are some cell phone pics from the concert. You can’t really see much, but it is my proof I was there.:-)Billy Joel, Elton John, if you are reading this blog, leave me some blog-love. LOL!!

Happy Birthday Gavin!

I had the pleasure of capturing Gavin’s 1st Birthday pics this weekend.  Gavin is such a sweet boy, he is already up and walking so we had to think of some creative ways to keep him on the backdrop (a rocking chair works wonders!).  After the clean pictures we decided to bust out the ‘ole birthday cake.  At first he just wanted to walk around, but after he tasted that frosting he sat perfectly in front of that cake the entire time…yummy!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAVIN!

Janet’s Maternity STUDIO pics!

A couple posts ago, I took Janet to the Boojum Tree for an awesome outdoor maternity session. The boys (Janet’s husband and son) weren’t able to attend, so we had a second session, in a studio setting, so the boys could have some pics taken with their hot momma/wife. I normally turn most of my maternity studio pics into black and white, but I just loved the color of Janet’s shirt, so I left a lot of them in color.

To all you photographers, one of the more difficult parts of a studio setting is trying not to blend a black shirt in with a black background or else you will get a “floating” head. I made sure to get enough light on the subjects shirt to show definition/texture and then I just darkened the background with my burn tool in Photoshop. Pretty easy fix.

Janet…you are almost there, girl! You are doing great, hope you enjoy your pics (Part 2).:-)

What does a photographer do on her day off?

I LOVE to golf! The in-laws are in town, so Mark and I were able to play 18 holes in BEAUTIFUL 75 degree weather while they watched the kiddos. It was WONDERFUL! I even got a little sunburned. Sorry to rub this in for all of you who are still in below freezing temperatures, don’t hate.:-)Any of you golf pros out there, feel free to give me any tips on my swing, looks like I need to work on having a straight arm in my backswing.
