Proud to Be Their Mom | Dallas Family Photographer

This is a session that was in the works for a very long time. My friend Patty had wanted to get some photos of her with her two awesome, grown kids, only it proved pretty hard to schedule!

Firstly, I should mention that Patty's husband is the master of dental implants at Oliver Dental Implants in Colleyville. He practices next door to my husband and is also our office's landlord! Hahaha. Anyway, they are good people and we love them.

Anyway, our session was difficult to schedule namely because of the crazy touring life of Patty's son, Jason. Jason is the drummer of a band called Neon Indian and they are making a name for themselves as one of the foremost chillwave bands of the decade! Rolling Stone even named them "one of the hottest new bands of 2010" and they have been written about in SPIN as well as Pitchfork, too. If you haven't checked them out yet, you should, because chances are that you will be hearing more about Neon Indian in the near future. Congratulations on all of your success, Jason!

I'd just like to say here that Patty is an inspiration as a mother. She is so obviously proud and supportive of her children and their accomplishments, but she makes it so evident that it is their character and goodness that are most important to her. Born the daughter of a minister, it is her faith that shines -- faith in the Lord and faith in her family. God bless, Patty.

(Addendum: Neon Indian played a live set at NPR WNYC today hosted by none other than Moby, so click on this link to check them out!)
