  • Glad You’re Here!

    Hi there! My name is Linsey Stuckey. I grew up in Southern California, but right now Houston, Texas is home for us. We bought our first SLR camera two years ago and I haven’t stopped taking pictures since. Everyone needs a creative outlet right?! I love capturing moments that people might otherwise miss and seeing beauty in everyday life. Our three kids are my inspiration and my adorable husband keeps me grounded. This blog is about our “little chicks” and their silly adventures. Thanks for stopping by!

12 Portraits (9): Sun Flare

This month’s Project 26 theme is Sun Flare.  Getting really awesome sun flare is something I’ve struggled with for a really long time.  But sometimes you just have to dive in and shoot straight into the sun hoping for the best!  And that’s just what I did.

To clue you in on the photos, each year we have a tradition in our family, Halloween photo shoots!  I’m terrible at fitting in birthday photo shoots (I’m too busy planning their parties), but Halloween photo shoots are just as fun, if not way cooler!  My son was up first this year.  I literally said to him at 6:30pm (sunset was at 7:15pm), let’s go take your Halloween pictures!  Okay!  We both jumped up, got him dressed, and raced down the street for some quick pictures.  If you can’t tell, he’s “Ratchet” from the infamous Ratchet and Clank video games series, soon to be turned into a major motion picture!  Maybe I should submit these head shots.;)

12 Portraits (8): Movement & Motion

This month’s theme is Movement and Motion. It has been one crazy summer filled with lots of movement and motion. It seemed like every day we were going somewhere or packing or unpacking. Despite all our vacations and adventures, some of the best moments were spent right in our very own backyard.

12 Portraits (7): Atmospheric Integration

This month’s Project 12 theme is Atmospheric Integration.  For me, it’s hard to imagine a cooler atmosphere than Southern California.  I grew up near Laguna Beach and each summer long to go back.  I love the bohemian feel, the beach vibe, the art culture, and the sun-kissed, laid-back lifestyle.  Plus, I want my kids to experience the ocean too and life outside of Texas.  We spent last week in California and here I grabbed a few shots of the kids exploring the tide pools Crystal Cove Beach.

12 Portraits (6): White

This month’s 12 Portraits theme is White!  And yes, this month’s theme may be a little “stretch,” but my dress is white and I’m going from there!  I’m excited and couldn’t hold it in any longer!  Actually, truth be told, I do need to hold this particular thing in four months longer.  Am I confusing everyone?!  Soon it’ll all make sense.

12 Portraits (5): Blur, Soft Focus, Shallow Depth of Field

You know it’s springtime in Texas when you start to see purple Texas bluebonnets lining the highways and covering random pockets of grass.  For about three to four weeks, they can be spotted just about anywhere and everywhere!  And they are beautiful!   Each year we sneak over to my mother-in-law’s front yard in Sugar Land to take pictures of the kids playing in the bluebonnets!  This week’s theme came particularly in handy because my mother-in-law lives in a typical suburban neighborhood (not in a field of bluebonnets – Ha)!  One slight move of the camera would capture multiple houses, cars parked in the driveway, cars whizzing by, a black paved street, people walking their dogs, and anything else you’d see in your typical neighborhood.  Creative angling and wide aperture to the rescue!!

P.S. I just now realized that my kids are wearing the same clothes as in the last post.  LOL.  Wanna know why?!  These photos were totally impromptu!  After Easter dinner I raced the kids outside for some quick Easter pics.  I got so busy the next two weeks, that these became our bluebonnet pictures this year, Easter outfits and all!
