Launched my new website!!!

I have spent the last month working on my new website and I finally have it done. Yeah! When I was at my photoworkshop in February we all had to have a website critique and I was dreading mine because I knew that they would probably tell me to scratch the old and start fresh. I had a great mentor, Millie Holloman and yes, she told me that I had some strong images but needed a whole new look. So, go check my new site out and leave me a comment or two! http://www.brandinellis.com

Tye-Dye Twosome

I've had the pleasure of photographing these two brothers every spring and fall for the past few years and our shoots are always fun and interesting. This particular day I happen to be getting a serious stomach bug at the onset of our shoot and managed to weather through an hour of shooting. Needless to say, I wasn't quite sure what in the world I would end up with but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when I finally had a chance to go through my images. Their colorful shirts make me smile!

The Varble Family

I got some great images of the Varble family on our recent shoot. Their boys are so cute and they weathered the photoshoot very well considering there was a playscape in their line of sight the entire shoot with lots of screaming kids having a blast.

D & T

So, I photographed two little cuties today. They are so funny! They kept me on my toes chasing them around. T is celebrating her 2nd birthday soon and had an oh so fancy dress for her sassy shoot.

Karoake Queen

Ok, so I celebrated my birthday this past weekend with my Missour girls and our Texas husbands. We hit Trudy's for some din-din and then my pick was Austin Karoake. This place is hysterical. It's in the Asian part of Austin. Who knew Austin had an Asian district, right? Well anyway, you go into this karoake joint and order a room...yes, a room. The worker guy walks you down this dark hall with numbered doors and my girlfriend says, "Where have you taken us?" He opens the door and there's this huge half moon, bright yellow, leather booth, 5 tv screens and 2 microphones and that's when you are ready to rock. It was so fun! We sang for 3 hours. Even Chucky Poo (Jana's cop hubby) got into it and sang us some heavy metal Metallica for his choices.

9th Anniversary Gift

I love these photos from our family vacation last year and I haven't been able to do anything fun with them UNTIL I came up with the idea to make my hubby a collage for our 9th anniversay this month. This collage is from our Bahamian vacation this past summer and I just love it and hope he does to. Are you kidding? No, he doesn't read this blogger thingy. The framed collage will still be a surprise.

New Website Update

I've been working on my new website for the past week and half and can't wait until it's finished! I've had a slight delay this week with my birthday and my parents and Gigi visiting from Missouri. A "Gigi" is my grandmother in case you were wondering. Hee.hee. Stay tuned...the website is going to ROCK your socks off! Double hee. hee.
