Jenna has been begging me to do a #BabyFoodChallenge so she bought all the baby food and that's what we did. I feel bad that we fed our babies this nasty stuff and then we laughed when they would gag. Well, now we know why. haha

Did you know that Felts Photography had been in business for 17 years before having an official brand/logo?
Yes, it's true. Looking back, I am pretty ashamed that I never took the time to create or decide on a logo to help our business grow. Through the years we simply used various fonts on our brochures and marketing materials. BORING!
Well, last year I enlisted a good friend of mine to throw some ideas at me. At the time my buddy worked in advertising and has years of experience in this area so I knew he was the person to ask. I have had so many people comment about how the logo really sets our work apart and is a recognizable brand. When I asked one client how they found us, she replied "I just kept seeing this red F&P on all these photos on FaceBook" That sure gave me a great feeling. I imminently text my friend to let him know his creation was being noticed, and how much I appreciated his help.

Did you know we have a YouTube channel called Felts TV?
On January 11, 2011 I posted my first video to YouTube. Many of my early clips consist of just personal videos of the kiddos etc., but recently I have been taking video production more seriously. Below are some of the video I am most proud of. Hope you like em. Click Here to view our channel and be sure to subscribe!
Did you know that a couple of Parker County guys have a popular podcast with a huge following?
Cam Hale and Kyle Philson's podcast is called Expanded Perspectives and as stated on their web site, Expanded Perspectives represents individuals inclined to form one’s own opinions rather than depend upon academics or authorities; especially about ancient cultures, conspiracy theories, science, cryptozoology, social and religious issues. Their open minded views allow them to consider all possibilities regardless of how strange or unusual. They invite you to come with them as they explore the many stories, studies and topics through podcasts, interviews, books, blogs and news/magazine articles.
A friend of mine who also has a podcast (Pair of Spades) had mentioned these two guys and the unique but fascinating content they share. I couldn't wait to check it out and was stoked to see they had nearly 150 different podcasts. I soon realized, living in a small town that I actually knew of them but had no idea they even did this. I just wanted to share this with you all. Enjoy!

Did you know that Felts Photography was established in 1998? After Jake graduated from TSTC/Waco with his associates degree in Audio Visual Production, he and his wife Cari started offering photography services in Weatherford, Texas.
No, I wasn't always bald and fat! haha

Did you know that it's illegal in some states to dance to the Star Spangled Banner?
According to Massachusetts State Law, anyone who plays, sings or renders the "Star Spangled Banner" "other than as a whole and separate composition or number, without embellishment or addition in the way of national or other melodies" is subjected to a fine of "not more than one hundred dollars." The law also extends to using the song as dance music, an exit march, or a medley. In other words: unless you want to fork over $100, you should probably stick to the script. Hilariously enough, in January 1944, Russian composer Igor Stravinsky found out he was liable to said fine after he conducted his own arrangement of the "Star Spangled Banner" with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. According to an article published by the New York Times shortly thereafter, then-Boston Police Commissioner Thomas F. Sullivan confirmed "there would be no action" regarding Stravinsky's criminal act. Well, unless you count the Cold War, anyway.
Two years ago I was looking through all of the amazing old photos taken around Weatherford. It was awesome to see horse drawn carriag...
