This One's Close to My Heart

I always love family sessions, but this one was extra special for me because this is my brother and his family! My big brother is my only sibling and I have always loved having an older brother. It’s the best! What’s even better, his wife is one of my dearest friends. Oh, and his kids are awesome too! Basically, this is one of my favorite families and I couldn’t have been more excited to take their portraits this year! They lucked out and got the BEST autumn weekend we had in Tulsa and we braved the crowded insanity known as Woodward Park together. It was worth it!

Gorgeous Fall Family Session

The location this mama found for her family’s session was just perfect! We have had a lovely fall and it has made for some beautiful portraits. Can’t wait to photograph this family next year when they’ll have a baby in tow!

Family & Senior Portraits

This session was so fun! I was thrilled to take both family portraits and senior portraits in the same session. And what made it even better was the gorgeous location and fall colors! This family is fortunate to live near a beautiful lake and we took full advantage of that. It was the perfect evening!

Downtown Family Session

I love doing portraits in an urban setting. Every pose has a different feel and the session has so much variety. Downtown Tulsa has changed so much in the last ten years and it’s such a vibrant and fun atmosphere. This family was so fun to spend the evening with and I love so many of the images we ended up with!

An Infant Baptism

The first time I met this family was a couple of years ago when I photographed their middle son's baptism. How sweet it was to photograph his new baby sister's baptism now! Every time I see this family, they are surrounded with family and friends, which is so special to see. This day was no different. Everyone joined together to celebrate baby V and her special moment!

Mommy & Me

What could be cuter than a Mommy & Me session? I have captured a lot of memories for this family, from the day after this little girl was born. I can't believe she will be turning 3 this summer! We had a fun session in downtown Tulsa, and even though little Augustine doesn't smile a lot in front of the camera, she sure does love her mommy.

Downtown is one of my favorite places to shoot! If you want a lot of variety in your photos and a relaxed atmosphere, downtown is a great place to make it happen! And now excuse me while I go schedule a session with my own girls.

Grandma's 90th Birthday Party

Few people are as special as grandmothers. We honored my sweet grandma recently with a surprise birthday party. It was a big deal, because she turned 90 years old! It has been several years since we have all been together, so it was a really special time for our family and we had so much fun! 

Big events like these deserve to be photographed properly. I would hate to reach the end of a special day like this one and only have a handful of blurry cell phone photos to show for it. These photos will most likely be turned into books that are kept in many of our homes. And many of these photos will even hang on our walls for years to come -- reminders of that special day when we celebrated the best lady we know.

If a family member of yours is celebrating a big milestone birthday, give them a gift of those moments and memories captured forever! Trust me, it's a gift they'll LOVE and one they will treasure for years to come!
