Beautiful girl plus beautiful gardens =

beautiful photos! The color in the background and Ms. S's clothing choices just were perfect together! Doesn't she have the best hair? And her eyes are killer! We had a great time walking around the gardens and then into Bricktown for more. We then came back to my studio to finish the session off. The girl doesn't take a bad photo! Beautiful!

I can't get enough of this little guy...

and I think you will see why! Doesn't he look like he belongs on a Gap advertisement? That hair, those eyes and that outfit just scream model! He was really funny the day we shot these. He was running around and being silly like most little boys do but his imagination is what cracked me up...he told his mom and me that he was hunting. Apparently daddy is a big hunter and little "B" wants to be a hunter too. We managed to get a ton of great shots of him and some awesome ones of him and his mommy who you can see Mr. B gets his good looks from!

Another beautiful smile by...

Dr. Phillip Parker, a pediatric dentist here in Norman. He also does orthodontics for adults and children. I get to see many of his former and current patients and I feel so lucky to do so. Now...the smile is gorgeous, but Ms. "M" is gorgeous all around...what a sweet kid! I can't wait for her to be a senior so I can do her senior pictures next!

So much to be thankful for...

and it all starts with my family, my boyfriend and his family, and my wonderful clients and friends. It has been such an awesome year and my business has flourished all because of the many special people in my life who have supported me, listened to me, encouraged me and loved me.

Having my own business is a great thing, but it is a lot of work and long hours and unfortunately that time is taken away from those I love, but the great thing is...they understand and know that I have a deep passion for what I do. It is my goal next year to better manage my time, so that I will be able to travel home more often to see my family (I've got the best parents in the world) and to spend more time with Scott, my boyfriend.

So in a nutshell...I am thankful for YOU...for reading my blog and caring about my work and giving me a chance to follow my dreams. And of course, I cannot forget the two in my life that are always there for pups, Lucky and Sulley. Dogs are such great gifts and the unconditional love they share is amazing.

OK...I've got to stop writing because I am now teary eyed! Love you all! Happy Thanksgiving!


Below you will see my parents and their great sense of humor...they wanted to do something special for the grandkids and this is what we came up with:) Don't they look super for almost seventy!

And my pups from last year at Christmas. As you can see by looking at my 90lb. baby, Sullivan, the studio is not their favorite place to be:)

Yet another trip to the Myriad Gardens and ...

another beautiful family! Little "E" was quite the wanderer and had his own agenda on this day...explore and explore some more! It was fun chasing him around and quite the challenge. We did manage some nice shots so it was worth it and more exercise for me!

B is for ...

Beautiful Baylee who is no longer Bashful and has never been Bald! I have been taking Ms. B's pics since she was about 6 weeks old (pic 1) and she has grown not only taller and stronger but she has become so much more's great and I love every minute of her smiles and goofiness! Along with her growth, my photography has grown as well...a thanks to my many clients who gave me a chance and saw my potential in the beginning of my career!

Having fun at the gardens...

as you can see in the first picture! How funny is that? I can tell these grandkids have a lot of fun with their silly grandpa! And words can't describe the cuteness of each one of these kids. If I had to choose just one word to describe them, it would be beautiful!

Senior boy full of...

good looks and personality! I was very impressed with this senior boy and little does he know he is quite the model. What a smart and polite kid he and dad did very well with this one. Keep your eyes open for him because I think he has a bright future ahead of him:)

Who says picture taking isn't...

fun? I had such a fun time with these two boys...although the youngest was not feeling well and well...yawned a lot of the time:) Maybe I'm just pretty darn boring. But big brother played it up and we got some funny face shots for mom and dad. It was a hoot! Don't you just love the spikey hair on big bro and the orange hair on the little guy? Adorable:)

Hugs and Kisses all around...

I've been taking this family's photos for quite some time now, so you all may recognize the kiddos! Each year around this time the whole famly gets together for a birthday celebration, so it is perfect time to get family photos done. I really love all of the kisses so I had to post them. One of my faves is little "S" and her mom's special eyelash kiss...for the life of me I can't remember what they called it! But it's sweet none the less:)

Gumballs and Gorillas... Curious George is a monkey, but the title just sounded better that way! And can get this Curious George and his Christmas book at Kohls...all profits go to the Kohls Cares for Kids Charity. For $5's a steal and you are doing good for the kiddos:)

Ok...I just adore little "A" and I love her dress. I just knew I had to get the gumball machine out and she really seemed to like it. She is one of the most active little girls in the studio. At age one, she was standing up on a chair by herself with no fear in the world and this time she was having a blast climbing and contorting herself on and in the ladder...yes, inside the was funny! Chris and Debi...your pics will be up soon. I'll be in touch:)

The perfect family but...

not so perfect day...we had thunder, the bomb squad and suspicious package on campus and a sweet little boy who cried every time he looked at me:( It turned out the little guy was hungry and at the end he started smiling and his twin started fussing...I guess that's twins for you:) They are both very handsome and have the most striking eyes! Little sister was a hoot and just so excited to get a laying down pose to give to Nanna...adorable!
