Ok, so I really wanted to showcase a milestone in my daughters life while she was at this age of loving princesses and having long hair down to her waist. I had imagined Rapunzel sitting on the ledge of her castle window with her pet chameleon. I didn't have a castle to photograph her on, especially here in McAllen or really the entire scene. The whole thing needed to be created from scratch. So I went into my backyard and saw the tree house part of her swing set. Light bulb!! All these ideas flowed into my mind of how to create this scene. I went into my prop stash and picked out florals and greenery. Next, I braided her hair with ribbon and flowers. The problem was that her hair wasn't long enough, I didn't have a chameleon, or a castle. This is where I new I would have to composite some images in during post production. Oh photoshop!....the relationship we have,... is love-hate! That's another story.

Anyway, I researched some stock images online that I could use and studied how the light fell on the them. That way they would fit into my scene with the correct lighting. I also photographed her hair in several different ways so that I could composite several pieces to add length at the end.

Overall an image like this takes methodical planning and hours and hours of post production time on the computer. It's not just a photograph, it's a piece of art. The final product will be printed on fine art giclee paper, with hand torn and painted edges and framed.

Miss L's 3 year portrait http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2017/11/miss-ls-3-year-portrait Oh how I love magical portrait sessions. I was beyond excited when Little Miss L's mom came to me with some whimsical ideas to highlight her daughters third birthday. My favorite part is that she dressed her in tutu du monde. One of my favorite designers; ballet inspired, feminine, and so ethereal.

 

Here are some of mom's favorite highlights from our session.

Baby B http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2017/11/baby-b When you need a reminder of how small they once were,....just look at the portraits you've invested in.

One thing I'll never regret is the mountains of photos I've taken to reflect on. What I do regret is not documenting some of the early milestones in my little one's life because I was too busy surviving as a new mom.

Document your memories, you won't regret it!

Blue Star http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2017/7/blue-star I had this crazy amazing dream a while back, after my dad passed away. It's something that I've been thinking about a lot and I have really been back and forth on whether to share it or not because it's so personal. I guess I'm going to go totally out on a limb here and just be vulnerable for bit. I can't stop looking at the stars lately and all of my creative energy for photography keeps leading to celestial themes.

 

I had the most amazing dream last night. 

I dreamt that I was in a college classroom. For some reason I had to take a very advanced chemistry class. I had already taken Chem1 and Chem 2 for my degree. I had graduated so I didn't understand why I was there and why I had to take this class. So I sit down in this auditorium. The professor is a Native American looking man (he has an uncanny resemblance to Graham Green, most known in the 90's movie Maverick) and as he starts to speak the lights go down and halogen stage lights are present over where he speaks. I look up and I see the night sky with hazy white striations resembling clouds. He explains where they come from. Then I look ahead and see a very small very vibrant deep royal blue light. (Kind of like the deepest blue that you would see from a welding arc). It begins as a small ball of light and then morphs to a cylindrical flattened out shape. He explains that this is before the world or creation. He said don't worry about this, this is before all creatures, aliens and other species (aliens,..mmm...oh really?), . Then in front of me I see a few clouds and another royal blue light but it's a little lighter. This was creation.  This was the beginning, he said. There were more colors from the entire spectrum of the rainbow. I saw orange and yellow and some warm vibrant colors under the Blue. He said this is where God is, in the blue. The warm colors were a representation of God's love.  

Then he starts to speak in a chant. It was a beautiful poem, where the ending of each line had a rhythm and rhyme. He had a Native American Indian appearance and this chant was so beautiful that it gave me chills. As he started to recite it, there was another class room auditorium behind him and they could here his voice and started to recite this chant with him (as if it was on the other side of the wall). The classroom I was in had never heard it before so we were all listening intently. As he was speaking he looked so poised and confidant. His chin held high as he peered out of the corner of his eye to see our reactions. He had a sense of pride in what he was saying. This is what I gathered from his body language. 

So he begins reciting this beautiful chant that gave me chills. I can't remember any of what was said until the very end of the chant or poem which said "God with us."  Maybe I couldn't understand the language or I couldn't remember what was said, either way, I awoke abruptly after the last line "God with us". 

Then I woke up.....

I immediately thought in my mind, as I went from subconscious to conscious alertness. I said to myself "God is with us" means Immanuel. Wow! Ok, so what does this Blue light and God is with us really mean. I saw this spectrum of colors but blue was the most important. 

So I get on google and look it up. It says Blue light is the light of God. Blue light is Christ consciousness. In this dream I didn't see Jesus or feel an angel. There was no human physical anchor to relate this too. No personification of God. God was the blue light as well as the spectrum of light and color I saw below the blue. This light was God in my dream. It was God's colors. It was a glimpse of the beginning and maybe the color spectrum was a representation of heaven but in my dream it was more primitive than that. 

Dark blue (the light I saw which wasn't as important) means revelation, authority, kingship, priesthood, faithfulness. 

 

The Blue light that was most important and representative means heaven, Holy Spirit, divinity, serenity, revelation. 

 

Originally I thought that all I saw in my dream was God and his light. No personification of Jesus or angels etc. What I saw was the beginning, the root, the core of God. It was the beginning. But after looking up Immanuel (God with us) in the Bible. This is what I discovered.

 ““The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).”

Matthew 1:23 NIV

"God with us" IS Jesus. Jesus was actually part of my dream because that was the very last line of the poem/chant. Jesus is the physical manifestation of God, the flesh, and someone tangible that our human side can relate to.

 

The Holy Spirit in my dream was the dream itself, the messenger. 

 

I experienced the trinity. 

 

My interpretation is that God is not some old white man with a beard sitting on a throne in heaven but just pure light, energy and love.

Anyway, this is just my interpretation of what I saw. I don't have all the answers so please be gentle with me if I missed the mark.

Addendum: When I was thinking that God was pure light,..... maybe that is just the way that God was able to relate to my human mind. Maybe He would represent himself to others in another way, maybe through thunder and lighting for example or however else. What if He spoke to me in a way that I would understand and to someone else, the message could be delivered differently. Who am I to say who God is.

 

Look up on Google Blue light, God with us. It explains a lot of more of the meanings of the colors of light. 

The end.

This is such a rudimentary illustration of what I saw in my dream but I just can't seem to recreate all of the colors that I saw.

Reavis Family http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2016/12/reavis-family Wow! What an amazing family this was to photograph. They are THE SWEETEST!

It was such a lovely experience to go out on an "adventure" with the kids. We pretended to look for magical creatures in the field,...big dinosaurs for little "P" while little Miss "L" chased butterflies. 

Editing these portraits "behind the scenes" was so fun for me. I had a huge smile on my face looking at the sweet innocent faces of those littles. I hope it was just as memorable of an experience for them as it was for me.

Aramburo Family http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2016/12/aramburo-family So often we worry about the perfect location for a family portrait but what better way is it to have a family portrait taken in your own home. The kids will surely remember their childhood when they look back on these images. 

 

I just love photographing this family and have had the pleasure of doing so over the last few years. It's so special to watch them grow.

Palmer Family Beach Portraits-SPI http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2016/9/palmer-family-beach-portraits-spi This was a beautiful beach session at South Padre Island and a celebration of family love. The colors! Oh my!

 This is such a great way to preserve their family legacy and I'm so happy that they did. They'll be able to pass down their heirloom artwork that I created for them, to their grandkids. (at the end I'll post a preview image of a wall art piece that they went home with.) So cool that they'll get to look at it everyday in their home. How will you remember your family legacy?!

Did you know that I offer custom heirloom artwork for your home? 

You know, it's one thing to have professional portraits taken, and another to actually do something with them. So often, I see people investing in digital files for them to simply sit on a hard drive and never to be seen again. Print it, it's worth it! You'll get so much more value out of your investment in a piece of artwork that you get to admire everyday hanging on your walls. What a remembrance of family love!

All wall portraits, prints, and albums have a 75-100 year archival rating which means they will last a lifetime if you take care of them properly. Digital files on the other hand will only last as long as the technology that they are on is functioning. Ever had cd/dvd not play because it was scratched or had a corrupted file. Remember the floppy disk? It's obsolete! Once a digital file is corrupted, it's lost into the digital abyss. What would happen if your computer gets a virus or the power goes out. You can't view them!

That being said, I believe both print and digital files are important. One is a back-up to the other. That's why we are a hybrid studio and offer both print and digital files. Now all your bases are covered!

Miss "L" and her sweet girlfriends. While getting to know them, and a little insight into their lives, I found out that they are all just as beautiful on the inside.

Mermaid http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2016/7/mermaid Loving summer and dressing up like a mermaid. We truly do have a fun time together scheming up fantastical ideas to do together. During this shoot she was very eager to "just swim already."

Over the Rainbow Bridge http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2016/7/over-the-rainbow-bridge One day I'll see you on the other side of the rainbow bridge.
To some you were just a dog but to me your were family. I will always miss you! I'm sure you're in heaven chasing all of the possums and lizards you can find.
The day before he left us. I took him outside. He couldn't walk well but I noticed 2 yellow butterflies fly right in front of me. At that moment, I knew it wouldn't be much longer. Butterflies have always been a symbol of change and metamorphosis to me. The next day, he got his wings.
(This is as close as I could get to what I think heaven looks like. It took me 2 days and 33 photoshop layers to create this piece but I really enjoyed creating it.) (Heaven)

Fabio's 10th Birthday Cake Smash! http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2016/6/fabios-10th-birthday-cake-smash Yay! Our family dog and best friend has made it to his 10th birthday and what better way to celebrate this special occasion than a doggie cake smash and portrait session.

While we were already in studio, I decided to do a few more setups. I love this one because it looks like a painting. This is how I remember his face.

Happy Dog! You can't really tell he is sick here and that's how I want to remember him. Happy, playful, full of love. I'll always remember his strength and toughness when darting across the yard to jump to the top of a 6 foot fence in an attempt to catch a possum. (If you don't follow me on Facebook, you wouldn't know that he's been diagnosed with bone cancer. Since he doesn't have much time left, I wanted to do this shoot so that I'll never forget about the best dog I ever had.)  Dog birthday cake smash McAllen Texas.

Just him and I.  Dog birthday cake smash McAllen Texas. Birthday celebration, pet photography, dog portraits Dog birthday cake smash McAllen Texas. Birthday celebration, pet photography, dog portraits

Puppy love and kisses! Dog birthday cake smash McAllen Texas. Birthday celebration, pet photography, dog portraits Dog birthday cake smash McAllen Texas. Birthday celebration, pet photography, dog portraits

Photography has been such a blessing in my life and it's a tool I use in coping with the joys of life and it's heartbreak. I'm so thankful I'm able to capture these special memories. In the blink of an eye, it will all be over.

My magic power is a time machine, what's yours?!

Miss I's First Dance Recital http://kimboggusphotography.com/blog/2016/5/miss-is-first-dance-recital Isn't she darling?! What a way for Miss I's momma to remember this special time in her daughter's life,...by having her portrait taken. 

What a fun time we had listening to music and dancing. Portrait sessions like this take you away to another place,...just for a short while; to pretend, to play, to escape the everyday and sing, act, dance and really get into a character.

Never lose that spirit sweet girl and keep on dancing! Such pure joy!

For the record, mom was hesitant about getting in any shots during the session but I MADE her. These are just outtakes but one day little "I" will cherish such a simple moment with her mother. She doesn't care if her mom was made up for the camera but she will forever hold in her heart the memory of her mother and who she was on that day.  Dance, ballet, tap dance photographyDance, ballet, tap dance photographyDance, ballet, tap dance photography, mcallen texas child , kid photographer

Many blessings to your family! It was a pleasure to have been included in this moment in your lives!
