Basketball beauties...

For the past several years, I have had the pleasure of taking the Norman North basketball photos. It's amazing to think that those that are seniors were just freshmen when I started. It's great to see these kids grow in all aspects of their lives and very nice to see those that have stuck with basketball truly for the love of the sport.

If there is one thing I miss about high school, it's the athletics. Basketball was one of three sports that I played and the one I miss and dream about the most! My jersey hangs in my school gym at home in Wisconsin...pretty cool, huh? However, I'm sure it's just a matter of time before someone comes along and breaks my scoring record...afterall, records are made to be broken, right?

Diane...I'll be in touch with all of the ordering information for you to forward on to the parents! Thanks so much for everything! You are a great asset to the Norman North program:)

The kiddos are growing up too fast!

I love to see the little ones grow...but slow down please:) I can't imagine how the parents must feel! I have been doing these little one's photos now for 2 years and it's amazing how they have grown not only physically but in all aspects especially personality! When brother and sister are fighting as they get older, mom and dad can use the kissing picture to remind them how much they love each other! Heehee. Anyways, I had to share these cuties!

Blonde hair + Blue eyes =

Beautiful! What a great senior "K" was to shoot! I knew when I saw her eye color that I wanted to give the blue paper backdrop a try with her...and I think I like it:) "K" came up from Elmore City for her pics and I hope she will feel it was worth it once she views her proofs! Good luck in basketball this year "K"!

Hair, makeup, personality....perfect!

I had a blast taking "E" 's pics. She is so funny and what a beauty she is. I love her hair...not that I could go that dark with mine, but it fits her so well! Perfect skin to boot:) All makes for pretty pics and making my job easy! And her mom (who I love to death) came along, so fun was had by least I hope so!

It's little sister's turn...

A couple of years back I did this beauty's brother's senior pictures. Both her and her brother were so fun and outgoing...see the hula! And there is one more brother to go! I was so impressed with her...she clearly is a smart, beautiful girl who has her head on straight! I just love to shoot seniors...they have so much personality:)

What a HOOT this baby girl was...

Her eyes are huge...that is where the owl costume idea came from...those beautiful big eyes. You can clearly tell the love the parents have for this little sweetie. And you can clearly tell by the look on "R" 's face in the picture with her dad that one day she is going to get back at me for making her wear that silly hat. Actually I think the hat is adorable...but who knows what we will all think years from now! Susan...I'll be emailing you soon with your log in information! Thanks so much:)

Two little people I love...

I have been taking "R" and "M" 's pics since the little guy was in mommy's tummy:) I just adore this family. Big sister is so sweet and loving to little brother. And mom and dad are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Brent and Jennifer...your pics should be up soon. I'll be emailing you with the log in information as soon as they are ready! Hope you like your sneak peak:)

Roscoe the Dane...

I'm not sure any words need to be said about this sweet faced pup! I LOVE him...and his mommy is lucky to have left with him:) If you look in my archives for a dog named Jelly...they belong to the same lucky people!

This little piggy...

Oh cute are these pigs? And of course the girls are as cute as can be's just that I've never really been around baby pigs, piglets that is. I have never heard such an awful squealing noise in my life...awful yet funny at the same time. And these little guys were so strong! I have some visions of shots that I want to try again which we were not able to get so hopefully the owners will let me know when the next litter arrives...probably next year. Not sure if it is even called a litter...heehee! Anyone with some pig knowledge out there?

Last but not least...Dallas Family...

Little Ms. Saylor was quite the cutie pie and a bit camera shy. But how sweet is that smile when it is caught on camera?! We resorted to get more candid shots with mom and dad and ended up with some great ones. should have all of your log in information in your inbox! Enjoy...hope you like them:) It was so great to see you haven't changed a bit!

Dallas family #3...

One of the only ways to get this little guy to stay in front of the camera was to have his daddy hold him or to let him play with the flowers. Mom said he loved flowers, so we let him be:) Big sister was quite the little model for me...what a sweetheart she was and those eyes are just too pretty! Mom and dad... you are going to have to keep a close eye on these little ones as they grow older! Cathy...your pics should be up sometime today! Hope you enjoyed your sneak peak. It was great getting to meet you can your family and to eat some of the best pizza I have ever had together:)
