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. ;)Read More
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!Read More
Alia and Jacob are one of the sweetest couples I've ever had the privilege of meeting! Alia wanted a sunset session, but her time in Oklahoma City was limited and the forecast showed rain this particular evening. So rather than risking it, we decided to shoot earlier and avoid the rain (but my goodness, was it hot outside!).
I have to say, though, that the lighting worked in our favor and turned out beautifully. Their session was at Bluff Creek Park, where we utilized different trails and paths. The trees provided just the right amount of shade while still filtering light through. I instructed them to do a lot of silly things that made them laugh, and the end result was totally worth it!
Congratulations, Alia and Jacob, and your engagement. I wish you all the best in your coming marriage!Read More
As the wife of an OCPD officer, it is always SUCH a huge honor when I get to photograph police families and couples. Jared recently joined OCPD and Laurie asked me to document this special time in their lives. Congratulations you two, and welcome to the family!Read More
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!Read More
When Leah contacted me and told me she and her husband, Michael, were needing a mini session, I was happy to work with them. I learned that their beloved dog, Miles, had been diagnosed with liver cancer and they only had a few remaining weeks with him. This session was an emotional one. Miles is such a sweet, funny, enthusiastic guy and just looking at him, you'd never know he was sick! I can tell he has brought his humans unspeakable joy throughout his thirteen years in this world. Thank you, Leah and Michael, for trusting me with this special session.Read More
