I just love this little girl so much!!!! her eyes catch the best light of any child I have ever photographed and she has the most calm and sweet little spirit you will ever see….We love you baby mia…..

Peace and Love!

{happy thanksgiving!}

Thursday, November 26, 2009

Hope everyone has a great thanksgiving filled with love and safe travels….I could not think of a better day to share the keyser family than today…I am so very thankful for each and every one of them. I was a junior in college when I met this wonderful family. I was looking for a part time job as a nanny and a friend told me about the lady who lived behind her that had just given birth to twin girls. We met and the rest is history. I dearly love these girls and spent many of my college days on the floor playing block and taking pictures of olivia and claudia. I truly believe the time I spent with them was the best preparation for motherhood I could have ever had. Made one baby seem like a breeze :) Their mother, trica, also showed me so me in so many ways what an amazing mother looked like. She is so caring and kind. Gentle and fun. There are many days as a mother that I think back on things she said and truly take them to heart. I LOVE the chance to capture people so dear to me and I found myself close to tears proofing this session. I just can’t believe how they have grown. The girls are getting so big and sweet little henry is not so little anymore….He is quite the charmer and it is easy to see why with those big blue eyes! Keyser family, please know from the bottom of my heart that I just love you all to pieces. Thanks so much for welcoming me into your home all those years ago to care for your sweet girls. I will treasure it always. Hugs to Matt, Trica, Olivia, Claudia, and Henry! XOXOXO!

Peace and Love!

Little Jayden is just too sweet….I met him for the first time a few weeks back at his parents beautiful home in the country. I will be seeing him a lot this year as he is in the BABY’S FIRST YEAR photo plan. Can’t wait to watch this little guy grow! thanks so much for having me out to your home and letting me have at it – even letting me put your baby boy on the wood stack – love that shot!

Peace and Love!

Their home had such a warm feel, I liked that it came across in the photos as well!


{Downtown FUN!}

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Had SO MUCH FUN meeting these three adorable kiddos! I had met their mom, Kandace, when I captured her sister’s sweet newborn baby girl a few months back and was so excited to meet up downtown for our session. Avery, C.J. and Anabella were just so much fun! Dressed so colorful and cute and full of smiles. I could have captured them all afternoon. Their dad, Stoney, was under the weather and could not make it for the session, but we are cooking up some ideas to still get his face into the christmas cards :) Thanks so much, Kandace, for sharing your beautiful children with Art and Soul! They did so well and I look forward to sessions in the future!

Peace and Love!

c.j is such a sweetie!

anabella and I were best buds….

Avery was beyond beautiful!

with mom….

Each and every holiday season I look forward to seeing my return clients! The Barlow family has been with Art and Soul for a few years now and I love them to pieces! Harper is full if excitement and just the sweetest little girl on earth! Owen is such a kind hearted and sweet little man. It was his newborn photos when I had seen him last so he had grown SO MUCH! He is so adorable! We explored the park for our photos and had the best time. Playing in the leaves and discovering new places to run and play – it was another fun session with a beautiful family! Thanks so much for choosing art and soul for your family photos! hugs!!!!

Peace and Love!

{Edwards Family!

Monday, November 16, 2009

This family just has my heart. They recently moved here from AUBURN Alabama and I think it was just fate that I would get to meet such a wonderful family. Their previous photographer in Alabama had sent them my direction and I just thought that was the sweetest! Leah and Parker did so well in the photos! Once we broke out the giant lolli-pops Parker was all smiles! We made our way around the gardens on one SUPER windy afternoon, but we did our best to find some spots to escape the Oklahoma wind :) I just can’t say enough wonderful things about this family and I am looking forward to more sessions in the future! Thanks so much for choosing Art and Soul and I am excited to create the perfect christmas card for you!

Peace and Love!

I have the cutest clients on earth!

parker, such a sweetie!

oh, my goodness….they are just too cute!



I just love this family! Coleman stole my heart at our spring session earlier in the year. He is such a doll and those big brown eyes are just the cutest! He is about to be a big brother with his little sis on the way. I am so happy for this amazing family and very excited to meet their new addition! Thank you guys for choosing art and soul and for the fun session. I LOVED the idea to bring along the pink flowers – such a fun shot! You guys are the best – enjoy your sneak peek and gallery!

Peace and Love!

kisses for baby sister!

so beautiful! Such a wonderful mother!

soon to be family of four!
