Photo Shoot Contest

The Broadcast TV Dallas Photo Shoot Reveal

Here it is! The BIG REVEAL! Dee, Meghan, and I had a blast on The Broadcast TV today showing Dee her photos for the first time! As usual, the people who make The Broadcast happen were all SO welcoming and kind, it's starting to feel like a second home!  Dee was so cool and confident, a peaceful and energetic soul.

Dee got her classic red dress from Rent The Runway because she wanted to add something extra special to her photo shoot.

Check back soon because I'll be adding The Broadcast TV's recording of the show when it becomes available.

The Broadcast TV Giveaway: Photo Shoot Winner!!!

And the winner is.......  Dee Robinson!  I was so touched by Dee's story because once you're  a mom your needs go to the bottom of the list.  Your kids always come first and all that hard work is easily followed by sweat pants and whatever feels comfortable!  It's so easy to forget how to dress yourself up so you feel like a GODDESS.

I love photographing moms because when you love yourself, value yourself, and take pride in yourself that somehow translates to your kids and they learn to do the same thing.  This is why it's important for all you mamas out there

I'm afraid you will pick me.

And I'm afraid you won't.

Because if I win -- if I am really that lucky--I cannot hide behind my own Canon camera any more. At least not for that one day of a makeover.

I'm Dee Robinson and I'm 48 years old. People are surprised to learn my husband and I have 2 boys age 21 and 22. I guess we've held up pretty well through 25 years of marriage. (The picture I have submitted is taken from our anniversary trip, and the amazing new ring he gave me!) My last portrait was my bridal portrait.

My mom's idea of makeup was Revlon Tawny Beige foundation, and using her lipstick on her cheeks for blush. Occasionally she would go all out and use some mascara. That was it. She died at 51, when I was 26. She doesn’t know that I’m a successful business woman who grossly lacks confidence and a sense of style. I am a curvy size 8/10, who hides under tunics and sweaters.

So if I don’t win, I will continue to fumble with my own collection of Mary Kay (God bless my consultant for trying…) and an assortment of CVS sale items that pour out of my makeup bag. I will curl my hair on Mondays, and wear it in ponytails on Tuesday and Wednesday, then rinse and repeat… I will stare aimlessly at my closet each morning, clueless on how to be "stylish", and I will resort to black or blue slacks and a gray or beige sweater.

In jeans and an oversized sweatshirt, with my hair in a ponytail, soon I will be on a baseball field, behind the lens, taking pictures of my boys. And I will smile. Win or lose.

Katie Nixon Photography Hosting Portrait Contest with KTXD The Broadcast

The Dallas photographer announced the contest this morning live on the show.

January 6, 2014 – Dallas, TX – Dallas’ natural beauty photographer Katie Nixon has teamed up with KTXD The Broadcast to give one lucky viewer a makeover photo shoot. Nixon announced the contest this morning during her live interview with Meghan Jones. The winner will go to Nixon’s studio in Dallas for a photography session complete with champagne, professional hair styling and makeup application. The contest winner will also join Nixon on The Broadcast on January 27th, where they will reveal the photos live on television.

“Photography is a way to capture a moment and I know I treasure the photos I have of my mother and grandmothers,” states Nixon. “I do what I do because I believe that we are each worth celebrating. Not when you lose ten pounds or you do this or that, but now. Women are notorious for sneaking their way out of photographs so I do everything I can to make it a fun, relaxed experience and work with them to get photos they can be proud to show off.”

To enter to win the free photography session with Katie Nixon, visit and follow the instructions. The winner will be chosen on Friday, January 9th. Entrants must live in Dallas and be available for the photo shoot next week.
