Saturday, October 31, 2009

I was so excited to meet these sweet boys a few weeks back. They were up from dallas for the wedding of their uncle and we were able to get in a session with the two of them as well. bright and early and pretty chilly out, but these two were full of smiles and giggles! Such sweeties! They were posing it up big time and I was loving every second of it! You know what they say, “boys will be boys” and it was too adorable! Thanks Mary for sharing your sweet sons. They did amazing and you and steve are amazing parents!!!! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Peace and Love!


big hug!

and like I said, “boys will be boys ” :)

{pumpkin pickin’}

Friday, October 30, 2009

It has been quite some time since i shot out a personal post, so I had to share a few photos of my little sunflower before halloween. she was quite the pumpkin picker this year. Actually she loved THROWING them of all things. It was pretty funny, but I was worried one might bust so we had to put a stop to that. We ventured out with our pals, priscila and baby mia in search of the perfect pumpkins. we found (after many wrong turns and a tank of gas) chesters pumpkin patch. it was totally worth the drive!!! goats and animals all over the place and even a hay ride. the girls were in heaven! auburn was a pro on her pony ride and wanted to stay on forever! it was a great afternoon! happy halloween to all! have fun trick-or-treating! auburn is going to be a little indian girl, and gets two night of halloween fun, so stay tuned for photos of all that :)

Peace and Love!

I wish words could explain how much I adore this family. Talk about sticking with me from the beginning. I have the pleasure of calling little alex “my first real client” I met them at a little park in Norman five year ago now for my first photography session. Man, how time flies! Alex and I have  very special bond. She can crack me up like no other! every year for family photos she has a one liner that sticks in my head the entire following year. She is full of personality and spunk! she is a little artist herself and makes my day when she says things like “when I grow up I want to be an artist like angel”  I could just eat her up she is so much fun! And, no other dad but billie would let us put a yellow flower in his hair for a family shot :) gotta love a never grumpy dad :) last but no least candace….she has the biggest heart you will ever see. will do anything for anyone. the BEST mom ever. so funny and patient with her sweet girl. I love seeing the two of them together. It sure shows me what I have to look forward to with auburn. the good and the bad, right candace. the two of us could talk all day about our girlies. nothing like being the mother of a daughter…..Thank you mcginnis family for being art and soul’s biggest fans! thank you for the pleasure of capturing your family for so many years! I just love you all to pieces…..

Peace and Love!

I had such a great time capturing this beautiful family! seeing the fun spirits they all had and love for each other was just great! They were up for lots of fun and total pros in front of the camera. we made our way around red cup square for some hip – urban shots. I just have so many favorites from this session. I adored how unique and bright the girls were dressed and how much style the guys had as well. Each and every family member is so unique and happy. It was great getting to know them all better. I love seeing the relationships that families have and capturing the little moments that tell the true story of a family. Thank you so much for the pleasure of capturing your holiday photos!  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Peace and Love!

such a beautiful family!

mom and dad….

Stephanie is the mother of two beautiful girls! she contacted me to capture some photos of the newest addition, addison. she is such a beauty! Look at those eyes, they just sparkle! I was so excited to meet this family and sad to see them go as they travel out of oklahoma with the military. Excited to hear about their future adventures. Jacob has proudly served in the military for some time now and missed much of his older daughter’s first year of life. I was so glad to see him snuggled up with his new baby girl and hope he gets lots of time to spend with his family. I thank him for his service and stephanie is such a trooper herself….It is amazing to meet all the beautiful and strong families out there. Thank you for choosing art and soul for Addison’s first photos! congrats on another beautiful baby girl~

Peace and Love!

addison is so beautiful!

jacob proudly serves our country in the military and missed so much of his older daughter’s first year of life. It brought tears to my eyes to see him now snuggled with his youngest.

I just love the cook family! I have been capturing their family photos for years now and loving every year of it! This family looks like they walked straight out of  gap ad. beautiful read hair with the green they sported this year just made me smile! I have lots and lots of favorites, it was hard to choose just a few. Ben and Hedi are always great little models for me and this year katie joined in a hammed it up for me! we made our way around norman and had just the best time. by the end I had totally wore these three out, but I just can’t help but get a zillion shots of them they are so cute! Enjoy your sneak peek, nicole and thanks for choosing art and soul for your family photos! you are the best! hugs!

Peace and Love!

I always say i have the cutest clients in the world, and this family just added to my growing list of beautiful families….They were such a pleasure to photograph and the boys all did so well! I was in heaven, they were the best behaved little guys you have ever seen. Took direction like little models! Have so many favorites from our session. Their mom is just such a super mom! I told her she was my new hero as she made having three boys under five look like a breeze. Thanks so much for choosing art and soul for your family photos! It was a pleasure meeting you all!
