My sister Kathryn is often the subject of my photography experiments and sudden shooting inspirations. She’s pretty cute, I’d say! I’m very drawn to hard flash and ring lighting for fashion and promo photography right now, so that’s what we did!

My sisters and I are far enough apart in age and where we live, so we don’t get to spend a lot of time together. We took a quick weekend road trip to Dallas to hang out and take pictures! The following chronicles just part of what we did and where we stopped.

February 16-17th, 2013

Every year I struggle to come up with a birthday activity that is unique and enjoyable for all involved. This year, it just so happened that a band I LOVE (The Burning Hotels) was playing a rare show the weekend right before my birthday. The only problem is that the band and show were Fort Worth. Solution? Birthday road trip with a handful of my closest friends! I decided to take my camera along (of course) for some freestyle, candid shots with a documentary flavor. P.S. My camera was occasionally commandeered by my sister Kathryn, and who knows who else.

Only one photo of the actual show is included, as The Wild Rooster was very dark, but we had a great time hanging out and listening!

We had no idea who this guy was.

At our “super-high-end motel” later that night and the next morning…

Nice day to climb in a tree. With a sign posted right next to it that clearly read, “For your safety, do not climb in tree.” But what do they know.

Then a few of us continued on to the Stockyards and caught the… cattle run?

This year on Thanksgiving, I decided to capture the day with a retro, documentary style. Very candid and unposed. An exact representation of the way this day passes every year at the Lee house, with all of our family who still live in driving distance. Homemade food, football on TV, and three little nephews with more energy than everyone else combined (after Thanksgiving lunch) playing in the leaves.




















Kathryn in her natural habitat:














My beautiful sister Kathryn often ends up being my go-to model when I feel like shooting, whether I’m trying a new technique, idea, or just for fun. In this session, she shot a few of me as well!







And… one of me:

Lately I’ve wanted to make time for more artificial lighting on location to create a fashion edge, so I grabbed my sister Kathryn and my friend Catie for some just-for-fun experimenting. We found an awesome, tall, wheat field in Yukon, OK and spent the sunset trying different setups for a variety of effects. It was an overcast day, which gave us some cool clouds, and with just a couple speedlights, we were able to bring them out while keeping the front fill soft and dreamy. There’s a natural light shot thrown in as well.




I was going through one of my all-time favorite wedding promo shoots, and decided to throw up a few more photos that I did not include in the original album. Bridal shoots are easily one of my favorite parts of the whole wedding photography experience! It’s a chance to show your fancy side and show off that expensive dress more than once. The model was my sister Kathryn, so for those of you who recognize her, don’t mistake this for her personal bridal shoot, haha. Hair and makeup by yours truly.

You can see more photos from the first post, or  the album on my Facebook Fan Page.
