I was so excited to have an evening this week to do these photos of my girls! They were pretty excited too because they got new clothes and fun accessories just for this shoot. It was a beautiful evening at Guthrie Green in downtown Tulsa and we managed to get these photos done in a pretty short time, which made all of us happy! Big thanks to my husband, without whom I could never get decent pictures of my girls together.
We did this session weeks ago, but I'm just now getting around to blogging it! This family was fun to photograph. They made me laugh so much, especially the boys. This session was a gift to Mom/Grandma from her daughter-in-law. I thought that was such a great gift idea!
I was so thrilled to photograph this sweet, brand new baby and his mama. His daddy had to be at work, but mama wanted to hurry and document him before he started changing, and I know she'll be glad to have these pictures of the way he looked during those first days. Baby R could not have been more compliant! He was sound asleep when I arrived and stayed that way for most of the session. When his eyes did open, it wasn't for long. I had the best time capturing all those little details - the lips, the feet, that perfect swirl of hair! I'm so glad to finally share these images with you all!
I just love shooting a teen who loves to be photographed! Caylie was so easy to photograph and she was as sweet as can be. I loved the ideas she had about incorporating her pointe shoes and her pom uniform. The night we had this shoot, it was extremely hot outside, but her smile never faded. I hope I get a chance to photograph this pretty girl again!
This sweet mama is such a dear friend of mine. Baby number 3 will be here in just a few weeks and I'm so glad she let me document her bump! She looks so beautiful! It was kind of a crazy adventure. The random field we were in was thicker than I had anticipated and was also full of cacti. So we parents were trying to make the kids be careful and then my youngest started crying about the "captuses" and then someone else got a thorn from some strange weed stuck in her finger and it just fell apart fast! But fortunately, we got some great pictures before that point. It was a beautiful summer evening!
I cannot believe I haven't yet blogged this session! It's been a busy summer around here, as it usually is for most people, I suppose. It's no secret that lifestyle sessions are my favorite. Add a newborn into the mix and I'm in heaven! Sweet baby G was so bright-eyed for most of his session. He was such a pleasure to photograph and his parents were very obviously in love with him. Documenting first-time parents is so special. It's always easy to see that new love in their eyes, the kind they have never before experienced. And so it was with this sweet family.
If you have a baby on the way, I hope you'll consider a lifestyle session! It's such a sweet and natural way to capture your new baby and the changes he brings into your life.
I love doing sessions for people who have received gift certificates! Last week I had the privilege to photograph a family who had been given their session as a gift. They were so easy to photograph and I loved how the photos turned out! If you're looking for a great gift for someone, a gift certificate for a photo session is a great way to go! Just contact me for details.
