Dancing in the Trees – Houston Katy Child/Teen Photographer

A Beautiful Young Dancer, Golden Sunshine, Hills, Water, Trees, and my Camera –  Pure Heaven.

Hoo -Ray!

It’s SOoooo much fun to conduct a photography session for people who are enthusiastic about doing something  just a bit  out of the norm.

My favorite young dancer, who just happens to be my niece, was beyond excited about our scheduled portrait session at the spectacular  Inn of the Lost Pines near Bastrop during a family stay not too long ago.

Dance-Studio shots are nice, but when we can put on bold colorful costumes and get out into God’s creation, something very very special happens.

Call me sappy, but Lee Ann Womack’s song always brings tears to my eyes.

“I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’
Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance”

“To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. ” — Agnes de Mille
