{Liz, Senior ‘09!}

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

I had the pleasure of capturing Liz last week. A beautiful, smart, and kind Yukon Senior. We made our way around The Farmers Market on a VERY WINDY Oklahoma afternoon. You never know just how windy it is until you try to take photos :) We found some fun spots to escape the wind and I love so many of the shots we got. Liz brought some colorful and fun outfits, which always helps make a session wonderful! We had the best time getting to know each other and Liz has such a bright future ahead. Heading to OU and she is going to enter the medical field. Best of luck to you Liz, it was so great meeting you and enjoy your sneak peek!

Liz has the most beautiful smile!

Love this one!

LOVE this shot!!! So beautiful!!

Oh, little Ella….I just adore her to pieces! Ella is part of my baby plan that includes four session in her first year of life and I could not be happier to capture it all! She has the brightest blue eyes, adorable smile, and best little personality!!! She just made my day at our session last week. Check out the 8 week old English Bulldog too, their family friend was kind enough to bring the sweet pup up for the session and it turned out amazing! I was so happy to see the smile it brought to Ella’s face! I have so many favorites from our session in the Paseo, so it was hard to pick just a few. Can’t wait for you to see the whole gallery, Alexis! You are going to love it! Thanks for sharing your wonderful Ella with Art and Soul!


This puppy made ella so excited!!

Those blue eyes, so adorable!

Kisses from mom and dad!


It’s that time of year again.  I’m looking for senior reps that are fun, outgoing, edgy, fashion forward and involved to help promote my business.

  • you will pass out business cards with your own photo on them from your “mini” session to your friends promoting my studio.

I was so excited to meet this little guy. His mom and dad had decided to wait until the arrival to find out whether they were having a boy or girl, so when I got the call a baby boy had arrived – I was so pumped! I have had a handful of clients waiting to find out the sex of their baby and I just think it is so cool! Baby Liam is just perfect! He was so peaceful and sweet our entire session. Snuggling with his new big sister, Addie, and giving us some sweet little smiles. Addie cracks me up because she refers to me by my whole name, so she was running around the house saying “angel porch.” It was cracking me up! I LOVE the shots we got of Liam with his Mommy. They just melt my heart and I hope they are everything you were looking for Kim. Thanks so much for letting me come over and capture your little man. He is perfect and adorable beyond words. I can’t wait to watch him grow. Give Addie and Liam a big hug for me!

I love the sun flare in this shot!

oh, I love this one….

April and May are bust months for birthdays around here. With Dusty’s yesterday and Auburn’s in just a few weeks. We has a party for Dusty yesterday and the house was filled with family and friends, plus lots of little ones running around playing. We also celebrated Lily turning THREE! Lily is the daughter of my lifelong friend, Wendi and she is as cute as can be! Auburn loved the “cupcake themed” party and even got to decorate her very own cupcake. She spent most of the time eating the icing :) It was the best! Here are a few pics of the birthday filled week!

Auburn and her “aunt timmy” aka Aunt Kimmy.

We broke out an early birthday gift for Auburn and she was in HEAVEN!!!! The other kiddos had fun with it too! And, see – who says the photographer can’t be in the picture?…. I got my shadow in the shot  :) 

Happy Birthday Babes!

Auburn and Lily!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Lily!

Auburn thought the cupcake game was pretty cool!

Time to decorate cupcakes!

Lily perfecting her cupcake!

Andrew is getting so big! He has his very own skate park in his back yard!!! He busted out some tricks for me :)

I was REALLY impressed!!! And, glad to see him wearing a helmet!

I love this kid!!!

What a wonderful wedding to be a part of!!!! Had the pleasure of capturing Brian and Shelly’s big day last week and it was nothing short of amazing! The church was so incredible, and we were able to get some nice shots outside before the ceremony. I was so glad to have Kris along for the fun and she helped the day run perfectly smooth. Brian and Shelly are so great. I loved meeting the entire family and all their awesome friends. The reception had a few bumps in the road, due to the ever changing Oklahoma weather, but no one let it get them down and the fun continued downstairs. Thank you both for a wonderful wedding! I am so honored that I was a part of your big day and I won’t soon forget it. Enjoy your sneak peek, you two are the BEST!

these girls were so much fun!

Had the wonderful opportunity last week to meet up with Kelsey and her mom at one AMAZING home to capture her Bridal photos. I have truly enjoyed photographing the engagement and bridals of Miss Kelsey! She is so much fun and great to be around! We had an amazing morning capturing indoor and a few outdoor photos. I was in love with her dress (and her awesome pink shoes) and I know she will be such a beautiful bride at her upcoming wedding. Thank you so much for the honor of capturing such a wonderful and exciting time in your life, Kelsey! You are the best!

Instead of the traditional bouquet, Kelsey had a heirloom fan. I LOVED it!

We had the most amazing light for our morning session!

adorable shoes!!!

beautiful, beautiful Hannah!!!! Wow from the very beginning of our shoot. She is nothing but fun and beyond adorable! I was SO excited when my former teacher contacted me to shoot her only daughter’s senior photos. Carol (still hard to call her by her first name) was my 6th and 7th grade Creative Communications teacher. To this date one of my favorite classes of all time. I have nothing but wonderful memories from the class – and nothing but fun memories from our session last week. Thanks so much for the honor of shooting your senior photos, Hannah! I can’t wait to hear about the exciting future ahead of you!!!! You are amazing!

such a beauty!!!

hannah made my job a piece of cake!!!

Forgive me for being behind on the blog, but the warmer weather finds me shooting A LOT! Out and about three or more sessions a day at times. I love it, but it sometimes means that blog posts take a bit longer than I like. Here is the next senior on my list  of blogs to catch everyone up on. She was SOOOOO much fun and the camera LOVES her! She has my heart being a Norman North Senior (where I graduated from almost 10, eeekkk, really – 10 years ago) We made our way around Paseo and she rocked it with some awesome outfits and the best accessory of all – a beautiful smile! Thanks for being so patient for your sneak peek, and your gallery is coming super soon!

sooo adorable!!!!

Hello, new favorite jumping shot!!!

LOVE shooting in Paseo, you never know what you might find!

I tend to shoot morning or early evening light, so I had forgot how much I love full sun!!

some killer shoes!!!
