The Bartons | Lifestyle Newborn

When I entered Jared and Laurie's home, Jared was rocking his newborn daughter, Remy, while Laurie finished getting ready for our session. I recognized something very familiar in both of their eyes—they had been transformed by her birth.

The Bartons | Maternity Lifestyle

I cannot even tell you how sweet this couple is. I first met them when Laurie requested some celebratory photos after her husband's graduated from the Oklahoma City police academy. It was such an honor to do this maternity session as they eagerly await the arrival of their sweet baby girl, Remy Rae!

Marley Langston | Bethany Children's Center

I've known Kaela and Landon for a few years and have watched Marley's story unfold via Facebook for the past few months. We have been planning an in-home lifestyle session for some time now, but Marley has needed immediate health care for longer than planned, so I wanted to come and document this important, special part of their journey, too. When I first saw Marley in person, I felt an overwhelming sense of adoration and awe.

Brittany Abernathy | Lifestyle Session

If you know me, you know I love horses. I grew up around them and I've been horse crazy since I could walk! So when Brittany contacted me for a session with her horse, Sandman, I was instantly excited and couldn't wait to get started.

We had to chase the elusive sun, but I think we still captured that fresh, autumn glow!

What a sweet horse! He took incredible care of his best friend, who was nervous to ride bareback AND in a dress. Brittany, you did amazing, and I am so glad you chose me to capture the essence of your bond with your sweet boy!

PS: Check out the very last photo for a hilarious blooper. Brittany was a bit nervous the first time I asked her to lope, and she looked like someone straight out of Braveheart! I even added a sword for hilarious effect. ;)

Ashlyn Crowley | Fresh 48

One of my favorite things about lifestyle photography is that it's so versatile. I love going into hospitals to document a newborn when they are less than 48 hours old! There's a "newness" to them that you can't quite capture at their newborn session; the difference a week can make is huge! 

At this session, I got to snuggle this sweet babe before taking her photos. She was so tiny! I can't even remember my daughter being that small! I was even able to offer a tip that helped soothe her: a white noise app on my phone. It always worked for my daughter too. :)

Here are a few of my favorite shots from her session!

Patrick Morgan Jr | Lifestyle Newborn

I recently did a maternity session for the Morgans, and I have come to adore this little family so much! Thankfully they live right up the road from me, so our little ones can have playdates in the years to come! 

Baby Patrick stole my heart immediately. He was so tiny and sweet, and when he fell asleep in my arms it SERIOUSLY made me miss those tender moments I shared with my daughter ten months ago! He is absolutely precious, and I had the hardest time choosing which photos to deliver. I didn't even want to stop editing because this session was such a joy to work on! 

Your son is perfect, Megan and Patrick! <3 <3 <3 Thank you for giving me the honor of documenting this special time in your lives!

The Lakins | Lifestyle Session

Cooper was born very shortly after my daughter, Evelyn, (and Shanna works with my husband), so I have had a blast getting to know this family over the past several weeks! This session was SO much fun! I've had the pleasure of enjoying time in this hot tub with my baby girl, so when Shanna said she wanted photos of their family doing the same thing (which is also their nightly routine), I was immediately on board! Such a sweet, funny, warm family!

Becky Walker | Nursing Lifestyle Session

There is something so special about capturing the precious moments of a momma nursing her baby. It makes me feel so honored—like I'm allowed to immortalize their sacred bond, and that's something I will never take lightly. This session was no different. I absolutely adored seeing the love in this little man's eyes as he gazed at his mother. There was such a joyful atmosphere in the room and I couldn't stop grinning.
