Miss Kaydence the natural!

Seriously...Miss Kaydence couldn't have been any easier. I knew it was going to be a good day when we sat her in the rocker and she burst out into a smile without anyone doing anything. At one point towards the end of the session, she puckered up and cried just a little...only for the next shot to be a great big smile! I really think she just can't help it! She is such a precious and happy baby, and I can't wait to see her again!

Kayla | Bristow High School

Kayla and her mom came to see me for what seems like FOREVER ago. With the Christmas rush, I got behind on editing her session. It was a lot of fun when I dove back into her session to see the cool shots we captured. Kayla is definitely a beauty. She is a very sweet girl who has a lot going for her. She was a little on the shy side...but we managed to find that fun personality behind the shyness. Best wishes on a very cool senior year!

Caleb & Adrian

Is this couple adorable or what?! We had a lot of fun working with these guys, and I had a terrible time just trying to pick five favorites! We just thought we were having fun until Caleb broke out the motorcycle (I think he secretly had it planned the whole time, Adrian!). LOL! Take a look at just a few of the cool shots we came away with...

Christmas Sessions | Day 2

I had another really fun day of Christmas sessions last Saturday. Again, I got to see some old friends and meet some new ones! Here are a few from day two...Chapman, Cyler & Cooper, the Webb family, Abbi & Chloe, Halee & Ashton, and the Hayes family.

Baby Graham

Baby Graham came to see me a couple of weeks ago for his newborn session. Mom, dad and grandma (though I don't think that's the name she exactly wants to be called...hehe) have been patiently waiting to see Baby Graham's images. His session got caught up in all the holiday rush and it's taken me a little longer than normal to get to him. He was such an adorable and sweet baby! He made it all the way to the end before he decided to christen dad's ball glove and the back drop! LOL! Happens every time! :)

What do you get when you have a bowl of Graham, some Hershey bars, and some marshmallows? Why s'mores, of course! :)

Silent Night

So there has been this Pamper's commercial that has played for the last several years around Christmas that, admittedly, makes me tear up every time I watch it. It's the Silent Night commercial of all the Pamper's babies sleeping. Well...there really is nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby! So I decided last year that I would make a tribute to all my newborns that I've worked with this year and dedicate a gallery to them set to the song Silent Night. If you would like to check it out, go to my website and click on the first gallery that says "Merry Christmas."

Christmas Sessions | Day 1

Here are a few images from the first day of Christmas sessions. I had a whole batch of adorable kiddos come see me! Here are Sydnee, Berlyn, Carson & Caden, Austin and Caylea.

Christmas sessions = Success!

Thank you to all that came in Wednesday and Saturday for the Christmas sessions! It was a great time, and the best part of all is that I now have a huge basket filled with gifts to deliver to Bristow Social Services on Monday!

Congratulations to Carla Webb for winning the $100 print credit! It looks like it's just in time for Briar's one-year session! :) I will be posting a few images from the Christmas sessions stay tuned!

Merry Christmas!

Hudson & Parker

The Sezate family came in to see me to have Hudson's pictures taken again. I've had the opportunity to work with Hudson since he was born, and I think he definitely wins the rapid growth award! My goodness, he is a big boy! We also managed to get a few shots of big brother, Parker...and even a couple of family shots (well kind just had to be there...hehe!). Here are a few from their session...

Cooper {aka "Muscles"}

Oh my! Mr. Cooper was a firecracker! This little man was full of energy and personality! He kept me on my toes and made sure I was paying attention at all times. I think my favorite shot is his "muscle shot." :) He will look back on it when he is old and appreciate the guns he had when he was four! LOL!

The Tidwell Kids

It was so nice to see the Tidwell family again. They were in from Tennessee visiting family and decided to have some new portraits of the kids. Now the last time that I got to work with these little guys, Jess was still pregnant with Finley. But for this session, I got to work with all three of them PLUS shoot Finley's one-year session. And guess what? By the time they come and see me again...there will be a fourth little Tidwell added to the crew! Can't wait to see you guys again!

The Pinson Family

The Pinson family came to see me again for their family portrait this year. We shot the first part of their session on some family land, and then we retreated back to the studio for some shots in Brynlee's adorable Christmas dress. Miss Brynlee is one of my favorite kiddos to work with...and I'm sure you've seen her here frequently. :) For this session, Miss Brynlee definitely found her opinion...and her opinion was that she was over having her picture taken! LOL! Even with her new "diva" status...she will still always be one of my favorite kids to shoot!
