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.

Christmas in Arizona

1-of-3

Well, I have gotten a few new camera toys to play around with these last few weeks. Being a Sony shooter, I tend to run into a few problems have certain items “fit” my camera. One of them being Pocket Wizards. After doing days and days of research, I found Lon at Flash Zebra.com. He fixed all my problems!! I was able to get a few adapters and even some brackets to fit my flash/umbrella to my light stands. I finally could do some off-camera lighting!! THANKS LON, you rock!!

Now, off to my first test…I did a little off-roading tonight to find the perfect cactus at sunset in the desert. Well, I found one, but it was so tall I had NO chance of getting that darn Santa hat on it. So, I had to go find a much smaller one. As you can see from the pic above, the cactus I wanted to use is in the background. This was my very first attempt at off camera lighting. Probably not the most technically perfect photo, but I kind of like how it turned out. Enjoy!

Our vacation to Las Vegas…

As mentioned in the previous post, we just got back from a family gathering in Las Vegas.  My brother-in-law, Paul, was in town for the Baseball Winter Meetings, so everyone (Mark’s family) decided to meet up in Vegas for a little family get-together.  We took the kiddos to see Shark Reef, Tiger/Dolphin Habitat, fountains at the Bellagio, shopping at The Forum Shops, and some of us even rode the gondola at The Venetian Hotel.  

The ladies were able to catch a showing of Mamma Mia and enjoy a morning at Spa Mandalay.  It was WONDERFUL!!  

Here are a few snapshots from the trip.  I only pulled out my camera one night, so I don’t have that many photos.  But, The Bellagio had their Atrium decorated for Christmas, it was BEAUTIFUL!!

Meet Baby Anna…

We just returned from our family vacation in Las Vegas.  We had a blast and packed a lot in for 4 days!  We met up with Mark’s parents and his sister’s family.  This was the first time we got to meet Baby Anna.  She is now 5.5 months old and looks just like her daddy!!  I don’t get to photograph newborns too often, so it was fun to do something a little different.  Anna was a dream!  She cooperated so well, I think she has a future in modeling!  :-)  I have only edited a couple photos, but I have LOTS!!  Here are two of my favs so far!  It was good to see you all!  Have a SUPER Christmas!
