A Tree a Month

This is a tree.

It grows on a corner of a busy street in the North Valley of Albuquerque. My client, Brett, came to me a year ago asking if I would photograph this tree, once a month, for the whole year. See, his wife adores this tree and comments on it whenever they pass by and Brett wanted to give her “Her Tree” for Christmas.

Now, to some, loving a tree this much might sound odd, but not to me, for a tree has a spirit and a story and a character all its own.

And while Brett’s wife loves this tree, I think the most special part of this story is how much Brett loves his wife.

Merry Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve, and if ever there was a night filled with magic and wonder, this is it.

On this night, we tend to stop, be still, and realize that in the midst of a chaotic world, there is still an abundance of Good Things all around us: hope, happiness, laughter, friends and family…the only things that truly matter.

From all of us at Frank Frost Photography, we wish you a very Happy Christmas.

America’s Pastime: albuquerque senior photographer

It’s just a ball covered in yarn and wrapped with two strips of white leather, stitched tightly together.

It is only 9 inches in circumference, but that little white baseball is the stuff dreams are made of. The love of the game gets inside you; you carry it with you always.

It makes brothers out of friends and friends out of brothers.

Especially for these three boys.

A BEE-utiful Senior Session: albuquerque photographer

I have walked into cactus. I have fallen down a muddy hillside in the rain while trying to photograph an Oregon lighthouse. I’ve been bitten by at least 5,000 mosquitoes, but tonight was a first even for me.
While shooting Brooke’s senior session this evening, we were attacked by bees. Yes, bees. Where they came from, I still have no idea. As I was shooting the last image, Brooke cried out, “OWW!” She was bitten by something. I ran over, found the bee, and killed it between my hands, which apparently sent off some kind of “Bee Red Alert” because one after another, they started to attack. Brooked kicked off her high-heeled boots and we ran for the car. Once inside, there were two more, hiding in Brooke’s slippers that she had brought with her to the shoot. We were whacking bees like something out of a Hitchcock film.
Thank goodness neither of us were allergic, but I think our faces are now being distributed amongst the Bee Community as public enemy number 1. But, the session was nothing short of gorgeous and I can say with all certainty, that Brooke’s senior photographs are BEE-utiful.

Thanks, Brooke, for BEE-ing such a good sport.
