The time is here to to get your soon to be high schoolers senior portraits done! Mom's we know this can be a hard day! Don’t worry we have the softest tissues to wipe the tears of joy away! These are times that you want to look back on and remember all the good times befor they have to slip off to college! When your missing that smiling face you can rest easy knowing that, that memory will be with you forever!

It’s been a minute!!

Winter is a rough time for portraits, but it clears up time to invest on personal projects! It is also a good time to reflect on Gods gifts to us as his beloved sons and daughters!

As as a photographer we spend a lot of time trying to master out trade. If it’s not the best quality in camera, we prefect it in post editing. We spend a lot of time studying and trying to keep up with the trends. Our most recent shoot was with my Godson Nico. Nico aspires to one day be in modeling so we tried to push our limits. Freezing cold is a hard time to get “the shot” but I like to think we did that! He and his mom loved the outcome, so that puts a huge smile on our faces. That tells me that we are truly creating something that is not only creative but we are creating something that can be life altering!

We got an opportunity to cover a very special wedding last year. John and Cheeto’s wedding was one for the books! We had such a fun time because it was a union of Holy matrimony! Cheeto was such an incredibly strong who was at the time battling a long battle with cancer. Sadly after only a couple of months Cheeto lost her battle with cancer. The story of her throwing her wig Instead of her flowers was epic! Just her style! The story went viral and it was amazing to capture that moment! When we as photographers  try to make a living at creating memories, you sometimes lose grips with the fact that your creating something that will be charshed long after we are gone from this world. If you take anything away from this blog post think of this. Life is so precious and you don’t want it to pass you by. Cherish the moments that God has gifted us with! Rest In Peace Cheeto, it was an honor to know you for the very short time we knew you! John if you ever read this God bless you sir. We are here for you!

Merry Christmas!!

Joy and PEACE!! This time of year can be so emotionally draining. So just remember this in Luke the Bible tells us this

 “And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:8, 10‬ ‭

we just want to encourage you to find that peace in the chaos and tell others of the peace and joy  that is found in our Father! 

 

Marry Christmas and here is to a great start to 2018!  

 

Love you all

Well it TEXAS y’all! Home of the ADD weather! 

One of the coolest things about this weekend was the fact that I got to do what I LOVE! With the ones I love!  

Now I’m not going to lie I was pushed way outside my comfort zone this weekend! I have not really worked with toddlers or new borns in a really long time! All and all I think it was a success!

Totally opposite at Metroflex, super nice guys. It seemed like they were all interested in new comers. No games no BS just want to see you succeed. Cool trainers really knowledgeable.

Last Minute Booth, saved little brother!

When you develop an idea for a business, you put together this idea that there is no way anything could ever go wrong! (Notice I said idea) Well last night that idea was followed up with one minor flaw that could have been disastrous! Could have being the operative word here! 

I was given the task of putting together a photo booth session in under a day! Doesn’t really sound like that big of a deal right! Well Dennis was Paramedicing it last night and there was a home game so Ashtin was doing the drill team thing and momma was watching the LD football game, so I was running the show solo! Normally I have months to go through inventory and put together lists to double check it, then have Chrissy (my wife) check it another couple of time to make sure we sd cards and batteries! Well as fate would have it 35w South on a Friday at 4:00pm was a parking lot! From MarKey HQ in Denton to Ft. Funky town would normally take an hour, IT WAS FRIDAY THE 13th YALL!! 3 hours!!!!! Needless to say Jesus and talked a lot that ride! Supposed to be there at 6:30pm well I had the idea I had left with plenty of time! Well I got there on time. Sounds good right! HA! The event was on the second story. So now I get to lug all of the booth equipment and the booth itself up a flight of stairs! Panic starts to set in the out of the corner of my eye I see what was later determined to be the very first elevator in Ft Worth history! This elevator was amazing I would love to do a photo shoot in it! But anyway, I get everything set up as the guests star rolling in. Cutting it a little close, but hey first disaster avoided. Then reality sets oh crap no WIFI😳, that meant not network to link the computer to the printer😱 awww disaster #2 reared it’s nasty head now I am feeling 🤢. So I turned to good ol Facebook out of pure desperation I put calls out everyone, even called FWPD buddy of mine Jacob B. He tried his hardest to help but duty called, he had to fight some crime (Big Thanks to Jake for trying). Then Monica H. A fellow EMT and past client reached out and offers to go to to Walmart and buy me one!🤗 day saver there. (Thank you so much Monica for even offering to do that) Love that loyalty to friends! Then my little brother chimes in and offers up his printer cable! I know that it doesn’t sound like a lot but it saved the night! He rushed over in his 30 or 40 foot tow truck and offers up his cable🙌🏻. So now I can go back and print out what I have already captured. Then as a good brother does he stays with me the rest of the night to help me break down and loads the  expedition up with me. Man took a ton of weight off me shoulders! I actually made about 15 dollars in tips which was kinda cool. When I gave Jacob my tips he refused at first  then I made it clear it wast much but it was all the cash I had, so when we were done he slipped the money into the console of my truck. Jacob I could not have made the night a total success with out you. I love you little brother and thank you 👏🏻 So much for all your help last night! 

So finally got some pictures of the booth in action!  

 

 

“Never abandon a friend— either yours or your father’s. When disaster strikes, you won’t have to ask your brother for assistance. It’s better to go to a neighbor than to a brother who lives far away.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭27:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Congrats to Morgan and Devyn, and thanks for allowing us to be a part of you special day!!

 

Love y’all

WHAT DO I WEAR!!!

 

The big day is creeping up and one of the first questions we are asked when we set up an appointment is what do we wear. That is a great question to ask. Because this can go really wrong!

 

Something to think of; What are you going to do with the pictures? Consider what season the photo shoot will be in. By minding the season it puts a date stamp with out a physical date stamp. That’s just not flattering! Is it something you want to share with on Facebook or Instagram where hundreds of people will see this? Lastly, are you trying to get update LinkedIn to get that dream job? You might want to dust off the old suite and tie. 

 

First and best rule for Family portraits is mind the color wheel. Guys if you Wife or girl friend wants to wear a pastel yellowish hopper with a floral print, that’s not the day to wear your poo brown or green pea soup colored shirt with your tropical swim trunks!

 

You can go with the classical look of white tee shirts and blue jeans if you're going for that relaxed look. Or go with something causal like kaki slacks and build the outfit around the pants you plan on wearing.

 

I have enclosed a link to a very knowledgeable young lady you might know; Whippy Cake! Ladies, this girl has it together! If all else fails, follow her advice and guys, try to keep up! If he is still clueless what to wear, ladies just dress him to match for your perfect portrait session!

 

Love, MarKey Photography

Wednesday 10-11-2017 on the Ambulance today!

So at my full time job today working that grind! We have a little down time so what better to do than to break out the iPhone and put it to use!  

This is Brad my Paramedic partner, we work on one of the Critical Care trucks. Basically that means if a patient is on a ventilator or some sort of IV with a cardiac drug. Don’t really like meeting people like this, but if we can make a someone’s day by getting them to the care they need then we have done our job! 

So this weekend takes us to Burlson community sale to look for some interesting finds! Looking for a dining table!! Wish us luck!! 

 

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

“Audrey Hepburn”
