Lauren and Landello~

I just LOVED my shoot with this girl last month and wanted to take my time looking thru her photos and edit what I loved best~soon after shooting this and a few others I went on a much needed vacation~ Happy with my rest and loving the result of not pushing myself into working when I am too tired… (I hope to get back to blogging more)~ taking next few days to finish those edits & then taking August to get some more rest, clean house, do some projects I have been wanting to do and get myself ready for fun fall season!

At a barn near my home I was greeted by Lauren on a VERY steamy Oklahoma eve in June~ I was instantly drawn to her natural beauty and warm smile.  She wanted me to capture her with her beloved horse before he was sent away for Rehab on his leg. I could see the love between them right away:) so sweet…here are some of my faves!

“Prayers answered” ~ baby love…

The most content I have probably ever been was when my life was turned upside down by having a baby. So, I guess this upside down tattoo works:) The crazier the life, the more rewarding at times. This shoot was so relaxed and natural, I love when my clients get me:) Keeping it simple. Here are a few favorites~

I asked the mom what her tattoo meant. She looked up at me and said, “prayers answered”. Indeed.

I appreciate your comments and or sharing post~ thank you!


Kelsey~ graduating!

This girl…ahhh… like a breath of fresh air. She has always been a little on the shy side but not so shy, if that makes sense? A bit of an old soul, artistic, a lover of animals and full of talents:) she is going to be successful in anything she does. Cant believe how time flies~ I have know her for about 12 years….she was just a little girl yesterday!!! Posting a few favorites of mine. I wish someone had been there to capture her on my back as we piggy backed over the muddy spots so she would not mess up her new shoes! We had some laughs, waiting on the light to change..sun in and out…crazy weather. Such a pretty girl~ and the hair! Let us talk about the long thick locks….LOVE her:)

her fave quote~

“I think of life as a wonderful play that I’ve written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part”.

Emily ~ graduating :)

When Emily mentioned she was going to be a journalist and wanted to bring her typewriter and some favorite books along on our shoot I was like, “yes”! I just LOVE shooting seniors. They are just full of hope and wonder~ ready to tackle the great big wide world. Our future lies in them. I am kicking off my photo season with these pics and hope they make you smile. Had such fun with this semi shy/ girl with dreams~ and twinkle in her eye. Here are a quick teasers from our shoot the other evening. Ahhh, Spring!
