{birthday fun!}

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

the beginning of august brings lots of birthday’s in our little world! three of my bridesmaid’s and life long friends – both my father and father in law – and lots of little kiddos we love all have birthday’s in the FIRST week of august. not to mention, my best friend kim whose birthday we went out to celebrate along with mega megan’s birthday. i am soooo beyond blessed with a group of  friends who have shared in so many amazing times with me. i brag and brag on how wonderful they are and just could not ever brag enough. megan and i met in high school and now live super close to each other in the city. it is GREAT! it is going to be a BIG 2011 coming up for her and i am so excited to share in the journey. dana and michael are home heading up an amazing summer camp (the theater camp auburn went to) so they were out with us as well. kim turned the big 2-9 and although we are a little sad to enter our 30’s we can’t wait for another decade of friendship and fun! 1

{a midsummer nights’ fair!}

Saturday, August 29, 2009

I have been so honored to be the Firehouse Art Center’s official photographer for their events this year! Such a wonderful organization that helps spread the love of arts to the community! If you have not looked at the fall schedule of classes, I encourage you to sign yourself or your child up for a class. They are amazing!! The midsummer nights’ fair took place at Lion’s Park in Norman and was filled with amazing artists of all kinds. From pottery to jewelry the booths were nothing short of wonderful! As always, many hands on art for the children. I loved seeing the kids deep in art – glazing their ceramic vases and bowls! Even building their own creatures out of clay. Auburn got a HUGE kick out of the glazing process! Along with the art was great music and yummy food! It all has me ready for next year and even more art and fun! Firehouse – YOU ROCK! Keep up the wonderful work and spreading the love of Arts!

Peace and Love!

love seeing those imaginations at work!

just some of all the amazing art!

LOVE this family!

{out of the office}

I will be out of the office beginning tomorrow, June 22nd – June 26th. I will be returning all phone calls and emails once I return.

For those of you who have sent payment for orders after June 21st, I will be placing those orders once I return on the 26th.  Many more sneak peeks to come -with the June schedule being very full the blog is being updated as much as possible but gallery completion and order shipment taking first priority. Thanks so much for your patience and for choosing Art and Soul! I have the best clients EVER!

…..Sea World bound…..

I put it off long enough, a few years…. :) I have been needing some new shots for upcoming promotional things and updated website and blog goodies. So, Kris Boevers Photography to the rescue!!!! Kris and I traded out services and got crackin’ on some new headshots for the both of us. We explored Classen and got some super fun shots near the studio. Man, LOVING all the new areas I am seeing lately. Good ole’ OKC never disappoints! Thanks so much, Kris! Had a blast shooting with you and laughing our heads off the entire time! goodness, we decided photographers should stay behind the camera, we turn into total goofs in front of it. We were both saying how lucky we are that our clients are much better models than us. We are just goofs :) Love ya, Kris!

and, a special thanks to Debbie, at WEDDING IDEAS MAGAZINE for the honor of the July cover. All brides-to-be check out this wonderful publication to find some great vendors for your big day!

Once again my best friend, Kimmy is on the cover. Man, who knew trashing her dress would get her this much cover time. Love you Kimmy, thanks for being so brave and trashing that dress!!!!

My amazing friend, Kelsey is just months away from her big day! She is marring her Danny mid-August, and we had to get the party started with a bridal shower at my place. Nothing is better than having a group of super fun gals over for the afternoon! we had amazing cake (thanks to the wonderful Carolina Cakes) some yummu crush, and played toilet paper bride (one of my personal faves). Kelsey got some AMAZING gifts, even ORANGE appliances. This is one wedding I cannot wait for, and not just because my little sunflower is the flower girl (she gets to wear a brown tutu and brown chucks!!! ahhhh!!!! so excited) but, because I simply ADORE Kels and Danny. You have never met two people more in love. Can’t wait for August, Kels, LOVE YOU!

This little two year old does not mind getting dirty, one bit! she is quite the little gardener – helping me all the time….Well, mostly picking the flowers and playing in the mud :) But, I don’t mind…When your fellow gardner is this adorable, you just have to soak it up!

Still getting lots of sneak peeks up. Wedding season is in total full swing and the Porch Family also just adopted a pup,  little trudy. Our newest family member is fitting in just great and keeping us on our toes. Photos to come of little miss trudy….

{first birthday as a “mommy”}

Saturday, March 14, 2009

A happy birthday shout out to our dear friend, Priscila! It is her first birthday as a “mommy” to baby Mia and we could not be happier for the whole family. I just happened to get Mia’s birth announcements in today – and thought I would share. A lot of design work going on at Art and Soul Photography with Senior announcements in full swing :) Happy Birthday again Priscila! We love you!
