Family Portraits: Not All Shoots Are Sunshine & Roses

In contrast with the last blog post, this next family portrait session that I’m about to talk about took place on a chilly, off-and-on rainy day. But the family I worked with, much like the great state of Texas, was made of tough stuff. We made sure to take breaks to wrap up in warm […]

A Glowing Client Review

Wow. I’m truly touched that a busy mom, with 2 boys under 2, invested time & thought to write such a thoughtful client review. I mean, her portrait session was only 2 days ago!

Cloudy days, as I’ve mentioned before, provide the best lighting for portraits; provided they’re not storm clouds. I discussed the weather with Angela 2 days before & we decided to proceed. That chance of rain […]

Oh BOY!

This week I returned to College Station to capture the Casey family in portraits. Did you know I went to Texas A&M for 1 year before deciding to study nursing? It’s been such a treat to come back & spend some time with this sweet young family. I could not contain my excitement when I […]

Turnquist Annual Easter Egg Hunt

For established clients I offer event photography. This Sunday I was invited to photograph a special family at their Easter party. The party was HUGE! I can’t begin to estimate how many Easter eggs were involved. There was even face painting, balloon animals & a bounce house. Olivia with her Nana & Pappy (& our […]

This week we went to one of my favorite places: Destin! Picture white, soft sand; clear, green water. And if you can’t: check out below. Lol. The beach is good for the soul. I feel recharged. While many family members & friends supported me when I first opened Caty Dunlap Photography my brother & his […]
