A COLD Day at McKinney Cotton Mill {McKinney Photographer}

Friday was such a fun day!  I have been dying to do a session at the McKinney Cotton Mill and waiting for the person willing to do it.  The Cotton Mill is not climate controlled, and precious Ashley braved 40 degree temperatures to have her senior pictures done.  I was so cold...I can't imagine what she was feeling but I never heard one complaint and we got some amazing pictures.

I had the hardest time picking my favorites, but here we go...

The Cotton Mill is very dark and moody inside.  We wanted some picture that reflected the nature of the mill itself.  I thought this one turned out very old move glamour style.

Can anyone say "model"?  She is gorgeous!

Mom carried balloons all over the mill waiting to take these pictures at the end.  The wind got to us but they still turned out pretty cute!

Thank you Ashley for a fun day!  I can't wait to show you the rest of your pictures!

Braving The Cold

Whew...winter is upon us.  First, I must say I am way behind on blogging and have several families that I owe a post to for their sessions.  Thanksgiving week was a whirlwind with sessions every day, trying to decorate my home for Christmas, and FOUR people down with the stomach flu including me.

Anyway, this dear mother and daughter braved the cold the morning after Thanksgiving at 7:15am to have their pictures done.  We were COLD, but they were troopers and we got some great shots.  They are so sweet and this session was just a joy to do!

How wonderful a fire was lit that we could use to warm up a little bit.  Isn't she beautiful?!  I love the color in her sweater.  Color is GOOD!

I could just tell that mom and daughter really love each other.  I have many outtakes of them laughing together.  Even when I asked them to look off in the distance, joy radiates from their faces.  You gotta love that.

We had fun taking pictures with the guitar.  I just had to throw the artsy shot in.

Anyone that braves 40 degree weather and is willing to take her shoes off and get in the frigid water gets a gold star in my book.  I sure wouldn't have done it.  But what a cute shot!

Thanks guys for a fun morning!  I hope you enjoy your photos!
