Written by on March 21st, 2016

A Magical Combination… Since we opened our doors twenty years ago, we’ve had a lot of good ideas come and go.

The Halpins came, as many do, to SFA to further their studies. In fact, both Michael and April were students of Greg’s in the Communications Dept. They asked Greg to [click title to read more ;)]

So, What Have We Lost?

Written by on August 28th, 2014

While perusing new book titles on Amazon I saw one that caught my attention. What could a book titled “The End of Absence” be about? I wondered.

Greg Patterson cleans up a large fallen pecan branch at his portrait studio in Nacogdoches.

One of my absolute favorite aspects of our portrait garden and surrounding property is our GINORMOUS pecan tree.  Years ago, an arborist (a tree expert) visited and said that it was one of the largest and oldest pecan trees he had ever seen.  Pecan trees are familiar to everyone in the Nacogdoches area, but this [click title to read more ;)]

The Blooms are Coming! winter's white canvas will soon be painted with all the color palette of spring

Written by on February 27th, 2014
Colorful blooms abound in Nacogdoches as springtime awakens after a cold winter.

Winter is a confusing season here in Nacogdoches.  It seems like half the time we are covering our plants with sheets and wrapping our pipes to keep it all from freezing.  Then, the other half of the time we are wearing shorts and drinking ice tea as we rake our lawns.  I compare it to [click title to read more ;)]
