Family Portraits

Ed Brock and I had a running joke.  We could guarantee rain by scheduling a time for outdoor pictures.  Our first scheduled date, 6/11/09, was the date of the Flower Mound tornado.  The second time was rained out, too.

As Jamie reported in her facebook status, on July 16 we overcame tears over ants, 100 degree temps, Ashton’s sick tummy, and in-coming storms (again!)

A few items of trivia:

  • Official high temperature for Highland Village on 7/16/09 was 102°
  • Our photographer, Ed Brock, once won the coveted Golden Egg by the DSVC for his work in commercial design.  Stan Richards writes about Ed in his book (find an excerpt here)
  • He used a Canham field camera and a Horizon panoramic camera (read: not digital)
  • We were a stone’s throw from Super Walmart
  • Our photographer is legally blind

    I love your family photos. The girls continue to grow more beautiful everyday!
    Also love the fact that your photographer is legally blind! We had a piano tuner that was blind, but that makes sense- using his ears for tuning more than eyes, but a blind photographer??? He is awesome! Give the girls a hug for me… miss you…
