My meet-up images...finally!

About a month ago I attended a gathering with approximately 80 of the coolest photographers from all over the U.S. Yes, it happened to be the weekend we received a foot of snow...but, hey...we rolled with it and had a great time anyway.

I'm ashamed it's taken me a month to get everyone posted, but things have been a little hectic around here! I already posted a shot of one of our favorite models, Lindsey, who has worked with us numerous times. Here are a few more models that I had the pleasure of working with...Kelsey, Hayden, Holden, and Jeffrey. Thanks guys! You did a great job!

Daisy & Maggie

I got to shoot a session with sisters Daisy and Maggie recently. Their grandma gave me a call and wanted some shots of them in their pretty pink Easter dresses. I think the girls looked so cute and did so well for their session. Take a look at what we got!

Oh Scarlett!

Check out this little cutie with all the personality! Along with that big personality comes an abundance of ENERGY! You know I'm going to say this Becky...Scarlett wins for my MOST active child ever!! LOL! This little stinker will put the Energizer Bunny to shame people! And I'm saying this as a mother of a child who was very busy when he was little.

Miss Scarlett literally never sat down for more than a nano second. She even managed to find a mud puddle while wearing her darling little outfit (much to her momma's dismay!). She was so much fun, though! I will always take a busy kid with personality over one that sits still every time! I can't wait to see you guys again!

You do realize she IS only 1-1/2! LOL!!

Shoe Session: Part 1

So I had a model search a few weeks back in order to come up with some cool little kiddos to model shoes and hair accessories for me for an online children's shoe store. We were FINALLY able to shoot the first half of the kids about a week ago after fighting weather and schedules.

I want to send out a big thank you to my first group of mini models! Caylea, Chloe, Lillie, Tori, Ruby Grace and guys did awesome!!

Check out some of the fun shots we got!

A special thank you...

I have to send out a special thank you to Lindsey. Lindsey has been a willing model for our crazy photographer group for quite some time now. It has been a pleasure to see her grow and change over the last few years. She is a gorgeous young lady...inside and out. She has endured cold and wet weather to hot and sticky weather to help us grow and learn as photographers. She is the daughter of one of my friends, Becky Gregory...who just happens to be a fantastic photographer herself. You can check her out on my super cool blog list. :-)

There will be more images to follow from the meet-up. Things have been a little hectic so I'm a little behind on posting any. I did want to make sure, however, that Lindsey received special acknowledgement from me, because I appreciate her very much! You rock, Lindsey!!

Congratulations Kari & Jeremy!

I'm happy to announce that Baby Drake was born Friday, April 17th. He arrived about four weeks early! Mom and baby are doing well.

I'm unhappy to say, however, that Dad was unable to make it back in time for the birth. :-( He is set to arrive today. I'm thankful this family will FINALLY be blessed with some time together.

I can't wait to meet Baby Drake! I'll be seeing you guys later in the week!! Stay tuned for Baby Drake's introduction!

Kari: Momma-to-be

This was a very special session to me. I had never met Kari prior to our session but she told me her story via email. She found out she was pregnant with her first baby two weeks after her husband left for Iraq. Unfortunately her husband, Jeremy, has had to be gone for the entire pregnancy. This is sacrifice people! I don't think I could do it. They are hoping that Jeremy's R&R will fall at the time the baby arrives. I'm crossing my fingers and saying a prayer that it all works out for you guys!

It was a lot of fun working with Kari and getting to know her and her mom. I wish you guys the best, and I can't wait to meet baby Drake!!

Please, also, take this time to remember our soldiers who sacrifice SO much to keep our country safe. Their dedication to our country is truly amazing! I, for one, am VERY thankful!

Abigail & Olivia

Meet Abby and Olivia. They came in to have their 3-year and 1-year pictures done. Now I have been shooting Miss Abby since she was a newborn. You will probably recognize those eyes on some of my advertising material (or, actually, those are her feet if you look at the top of the page...LOL!). I've also shot Miss Olivia since she was a newborn too. It's been so cool to see them grow and change. Here are a few shots from their session.

Nikki | Oologah High School

All I can say is check out her eyes!! Wow...she has the coolest eyes I've ever seen! On top of having awesome eyes...she was a total natural during her senior session. Despite the fact that it was very cold with about a 30 mph wind...she was a total trooper and did an awesome job. I enjoyed getting to meet and work with Nikki and her mom. Check out the cool shots we got from her session!

Miss Morgan

Meet Morgan...she is another one of my model search winners. She is such an adorable little girl. I love her beautiful skin and beautiful eyes. She was such a sweetie and fun to shoot. She wasn't too fond of the hat...but I managed to get a pretty sweet shot of her wearing it anyway.

Smiley Miley

Miss Miley certainly has a winning smile and is another one of my model search winners. She is such a happy little thing and has the most piercing blue eyes, which I am a total sucker for! When she would take time out from being her busy little self...we were able to get some really cute shots. Check them out!
