Sigmund the Great

There's a reason they're called "man's best friend"...

Siggy brings a lot of happiness to my life. There will never be a greater dog in my eyes. He is the very best.

Beckham Beckham!
I adore newborns. This little cutie is just perfect! Although newborn shoots tend to be the longest, I always enjoy the time I get to spend with the parents. Beckham's sweet mom allowed me to use all sorts of furniture in their brightly colored home. There were so many great pieces I wanted to use! Just a note to parents- brightly colored props (ie-furniture, blankets) are great backdrops for newborn sessions since most take place indoors. The colors are a great contrast and add a little "pop" to the photos. Of course, Beckham was the best prop of all;)

I love being an aunt.

Have I mentioned how crazy I am about my niece and nephew? :) They are the best. I am absolutely, head over heels, in love with these two. They can make anything, any day better. They're so fun, so smart and so adventurous! I love watching them grow but sometimes I wish time would stand still so I could hold onto their huggable little bodies as long as possible! I am so thankful God blessed my family with Ellie & Owen. Life is too sweet when they're around. With the holidays around the corner, I can't help but get excited about all the fun Christmas festivities I will get to experience with them! Nothing beats watching them open gifts from Santa Claus:) Well, except watching their adorable expressions when we put "The Polar Express" in the dvd player! (Owens fave) Anyway, since Thanksgiving is next week I wanted to blog something personal that I am thankful for and naturally these two are at the top of my list. Of course, the rest of my family ain't half bad either!;) Surely, God has been too good to us.

A little fun, fall photoshoot...

My mom made this dress for me when I was little. It's so fall appropriate! Couldn't have picked a better model for it!

Scamehorn Family Session

Feliz was referred to me through my friend Dana whom I shot photos for last year. This shoot was unfortunately put off for a few weeks due to both Feliz's family and myself catching the flu. But lucky for us, we shot this session in the prime of fall. We captured these images in the Myriad Gardens one beautiful day in OKC. The kids were awesome! I've found that if you just let kids be themselves, you tend to get the shots that bring out their little personalities! A big thank you to the Scamehorn's for asking me to take their holiday photos! Your family is beautiful!

Isabella sells jewelry so Feliz asked if I'd add a design to one of her photos. Here it is..."Cross My Heart" jewelry by Isabella!

Happy Holidays!

The Ash Family

The best part about the holiday season in the photography world is returning clients! Heck, it's the best part about any season:) And not to mention, it's quite the honor. I've known the Ash family for some time now. We shot their family photos last year before baby Elliott entered this world. Lindsay is the sister of my friend Hayley, whom I met at OBU, so I've gotten to know her throughout the last 5 years. We shot their family photos at Hafer Park in Edmond when the fall colors were in full bloom. The images speak for themselves! The colors and the Ash family make for a gorgeous session. Ethan and Elliot are two of the cutest kids. Ethan is one week younger than my nephew so it's always fun to see him and listen to all the cute things he has to say. I don't think I'd ever had a shoot where a child told me they'd missed me & loved me until this one! I was floating by the end of it all!

Besides saying "thank you", I'd also like to congratulate Dustin & Lindsay on their job transfer to Delaware! As long as you return next year for family photos, I guess I don't mind the move too much;) Y'all are awesome. Thanks for a great shoot!

Clint & Merydith/E-shoot

I met Merydith & Clint back in high school. Mery and I were in Student Council together and became good friends throughout the years. When I transitioned from OBU to UCO, Merydith contacted me in hunt for a new roomy. It was 4 years ago now that we lived together in a crazy, little apartment in Edmond. It was such a fun and precious time. I dont know what I would've done without Merydith then. She made the transition so much easier. I miss those days!
Merydith & Clint are high school sweethearts. I got the chance to know Clint better when rooming with Mery. If there is one thing I know, it's that these two lovebirds are the best of friends. Which, in my opinion, makes being in love what it is. There's a lyric by Teitur that describes it best:

"So you wanna be my friend, so you wanna be my lover
With you I do confess, I can't be one without the other"

Yep, they got the real deal, folks. Congratulations Merydith and Clint! I'm so happy for you two!
