the becker kids

Can you call a senior a kid? Not so sure with this one. Meet Jared and Audra. They go to school at Cooper and Jared is in his LAST YEAR. Did you hear that world? LAST YEAR EVER OF HIGH SCHOOL! He has to be feeling so ultra cool.

We spent a good part of Monday night getting to know each other and enjoying the great sunshine and bugs, and biting flies that mother nature let loose all over West Texas. :)



for you photographer freaks/geeks, I shot these in RAW on the 5d only because I wanted to try out Lightroom 2. There are so many pros to shooting RAW, which I used to do for years with the 20d's, and Lightroom is wonderful. HOWEVER, and this is a huge however for me. With the 5d the files are ginormous and it's just not a fast enough processor to keep up with my mode of shooting, which is very fast. So, the buffer fills up and you are waiting. Which isn't a problem with portraits of older kids and families, brides, couples, etc. But for photojournalistic wedding coverage? Forget about it! NO WAY can this mode of shooting keep up with me during a wedding.

So, do I spend $8000 for a faster, better camera? Or just stick to my guns (5d's) and shoot jpg.

on the patio

CYBER sistas! Eat your heart out!

My good friend Julie and I, wandered on over to Abuello's on a Friday afternoon and didn't leave until almost midnight! OMG! Our hubby's joined us after they got off work, and I texted Jennifer and Eric to meet us too. I'm so glad they did!

We had a great time! Probably a bit too great and I paid heavily in the hot sun on Saturday at the Send Off, but it was so much fun to listen to good music, good conversation and good laughs.

Oh, and Stacy and Champ showed up too! Fun night!

Julie and I enjoying the sunshine and watching the band set up.

Jennifer arriving. Watch out! A few more drinks and our tongues start sticking out. :)

Julie and Heath. Don't worry, Heath, I'm not blogging ALL the photos I took of you. :)

Drink of choice for a while. I've been loving these since Jamaica.

Jennifer and Eric. Too cute!

What Heath does between drinks.

I love it when Eric laughs. It's infectious!!!
