Life through a lens

This little family was so cute!  Thank you {H} family for letting me document this time in your lives!  Enjoy the favorites from the session…


Tulsa Family Photographer: {J} Family

Late last fall I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable family of 3…

I had taken photos of little Gunnar before, so when momma asked me to do a family session, I was thrilled!

Love this one…

Could he be any cuter??

Catching Up…Children’s Photographer: Isaac, Andrew & Kate

Wow.  How in the world have I let 3 months go by without a single post?  Disorganization, that’s how.  I got so caught up in the whirlwind of sessions and weddings that hit at the end of the year that I let this little blog of mine go by the wayside.  Well folks, I’m back…and with a plan!  One of my goals for this year (no, not resolution, because who really even keeps those anyway?) is to blog at least once a week.  “Whoa! Once a week?? Watch out!,” you might be thinking..but yes, I’m going to try.  So as the title suggests, I have A LOT of catching up to do!

I love kids. I really do. But chasing them around with a camera for a couple hours is exhausting! And these little cousins made me WORK! : ) Andrew and Isaac’s mom and dad used to go to church with us until they went and moved all the way up to Minneapolis for dad to do an internship at Bethlehem Baptist (if you haven’t heard of the pastor there, John Piper, you should check him out! He’s kind of amazing!) and ended up staying there. I was so glad they contacted me for pictures when they were in town this past summer.

Here are a few of the boys, Isaac and Andrew…

and here is their precious cousin Kate, who I could barely get a smile out of…

…but boy do I looooove those chubby little cheeks! : )

and now all together as rock stars…

Thanks so much for letting me document your little ones!

Children’s Photographer: Sankie & Owen

You may have seen these adorable little boys on my old blog back when I first started taking pictures with a dslr. The have been my guinea pigs from the beginning since their mom and dad are two of our closest friends.   They have become like family to Matt and I and we are so thankful for their friendship. We’ve gotten to watch both of them grow from newborns into little boys and it has been such a blessing to see. A couple months back their mom, Jamie, actually asked me to take some photos of them (normally I beg her to! : ) ) and I of course said yes!  These two were a hoot and definitely gave me a workout chasing them around during our session!  My legs were eaten up by chiggers, but the photos were so worth it : ). Here are my favorites…

Look at that innocent little face!  I could just kiss him all over : )  Owen’s favorite word to me right now is “No!”  I’m tellin’ you, anything I ask him, that’s his answer.

Sankie went through a phase a while back where he didn’t want anything to do with me.  I’m not gonna lie, it totally hurt my feelings even though I know he’s just a little kid.  But several months ago, he finally started warming up to me again and I’m so glad!  I just love this kid!

They are such hams….love it!

Sankie is such a loving older brother to Owen, and it’s just so sweet to watch.  Owen follows Sankie around everywhere and tries to do everything brother is doing..

And I’ll end with pretty much the only photo I got of them both smiling at me!
