{sweet, sweet, baby girl!}

Thursday, July 30, 2009

Before heading out of town I had the pleasure of capturing this adorable little sweetie! I headed up to Edmond for an early morning session and was so happy to meet this loving family! Exploring their lovely home I found lots of fun things to use for the shoot. Her big sister was just the cutest and I can see lots of hugs, tea parties, and giggles in their future! Thanks so much for having me over to capture your baby girl! Enjoy your sneak peek and gallery coming soon!

Oh, she was so good to me!

with mom….

we really could not believe she did not mind being propped up in this vase! She loved it!

Enjoy your sneak peek!!!

We played some tennis, ate some YUMMY irish food and plan on a trip to the coast tomorrow. Missing my loves at home, but soaking up all the beauty this place has to offer…..Simply amazing!!! Here are a few pics of the last few days!

This wedding was so amazing! Full of fun, happiness, and a beautiful couple!!! Kelsey and I made the long drive down (without even getting lost, yay!!) must have been courtney’s great directions.  I must say, it sure was worth the drive!!! Courtney was a beautiful bride head to toe. Her calm nature and kind spirit are just a few of her wonderful qualities. I loved seeing these two tie the knot. They are a shining example of true love! Kels and I were in LOVE with the outdoor setting and amazing evening reception. I truly was a lovely site….Thank you both so much for the honor of shooting your awesome wedding. I can’t wait to show you all your pics – talk very soon!

The sunset ceremony was AMAZING!

Cutest bunch of flower girls and ring bearers…

oh, man…..this reception was rocking!!!!

having a blast in ireland! the flight was loooonnnngggg but good! Got to stop off in London which is always fun! Headed to meet up with my loves, Erin and Steven in their hometown the next day. The showed us around the wonderful city of Galway. We ate amazing food, drove crazy on the wrong side of the road, and had a wonderful time learning about ireland! I was so happy to see erin and steven’s beautiful place filled with her artwork. Today we took a countryside horse back ride and our tour guide was adorable! we could not understand his very thick accent the entire time, but rode along and agreed with much of what he had to say :) Tomorrow we head out to the first of two castle’s we will stay in and hope for a day of relaxation after being in the city. Man, this driving thing is nuts! roundabouts – left side of the road craziness!!!! So far all I can say though is, I LOVE IRELAND!

erin and steven, love you both!!!!

yep, it rains a lot here….erin under the umbrella!

I was so wonderful getting to know Korri better as we made our way around the Paseo a few weeks back! She is a very talented senior from Oklahoma City University. Korri contacted me for some updated head shots and I was more than pumped to capture them for her! Look at her, she is so beautiful! So happy with so many of our shots, so here are a few favorites! Thanks for choosing Art and Soul Korri! Can’t wait to work with you again!!

Had such blast covering this beautiful afternoon wedding with the wonderful Ashlee! Dawn was such a beautiful bride and can light up any room with her smile! I had gotten the chance to also capture the engagement photos of these two love birds and knew it was going to be a beautiful wedding day! They are so in love. Snuggling up all evening and not getting more than two inches away from each other. It was amazing! The reception was filled with laughter – amazing guitar playing – and some great dancing!!! I could not have asked for a better evening. Congrats you two and hope the honeymoon was awesome! (it was pretty neat when we realized that we were both on the same flight to dallas the monday after the wedding. talk about a small world)

I loved dawn’s dress and the bridesmaids dresses were beautiful as well!!!

SUCH a cute cake!

dawn’s mom was glowing the whole day, so excited for her daughter!

LOVE this above shot…..

these napkins were the cutest!

Meet little cutie-pie Zoe! She was such a doll for our session a few weeks back. It was pretty hot out but she was a trooper giving us some super sweet smiles. It was such a pleasure meeting her mom and dad and even grandma joined us on the session. Zoe had some WONDERFUL outfits and they were full of color, just like this photographer like :) Thanks so much for choosing Art and Soul for Zoe’s photos and your gallery information is being sent now.
