Oh Little Garrett! The day I showed up in Stillwater for Garrett’s newborn portraits, he was feeling a lot like this:Now, he didn’t keep this up the whole time. He was satisfied if both mom and dad exerted all their efforts into comforting him, which looked a little like this:So after I had exhausted all my ideas for newborn poses in mom & dad’s arms……we just waited for him to wear out. And eventually he did! For a little while, anyway. Garrett is officially THE cutest turtle I have ever seen. Garrett also happens to be hands-down the most adorable volunteer fire fighter that I’ve ever seen. What a cutie patootie!
I met Pastors Skip & Karen Mosely last year when we worked on a picture for her new book His Presence Changes Everything. They were such wonderful people! So easy to work with, so kind, so genuine, so happy- I immediately liked them! Earlier this month I visited their church here in Tulsa, Glorious Light International Church, to get some updated pictures for them. And I have to tell you, their entire church is just as kind, happy, caring and wonderful as they are!
To Kelly & Kevin- I hope you two make many, many awesome babies just as sweet and happy as your little Natalie!
I met Jason & Maris last year when I shot their engagement portraits. I probably blabbed in that post about how cool they are. I’m not sure I can refrain from doing so again, either. It’s just that…well, they’re so COOL! Maris is tall, thin & gorgeous and…well, her name is Maris, I mean come on! She is, thus far in my life, the ONLY Maris that I know, which is automatic cool points. And then Jason is the drummer who can somehow pull off the full arm of tattoos and still be uber sweet to his pregnant wife.
Greyson’s kind of a rockstar around here. Let’s see, he made his first appearance in mommy’s tummy, and then came his newborn portraits, 6 month pictures, 9 month pictures and now finally his first birthday party. Greyson’s mommy and grandmother did an AMAZING job with every single detail of his party! I wish I could show you every picture right here on the blog, but you’ll have to check back in client proofing later to see the rest of the party!
www.StorybookWeddings.org Jon & Samantha actually got married waaaaay back in December. Truth is, Christmas turned me into a lazy blogger. I trick myself into thinking that no one will ever read it anyway…”so why post? yes, I should definitely bake cookies instead”. But you’re here, reading this, which proves that at least one person out there IS in fact reading the blog of this Tulsa photographer! Well, who knew! So anyway, back to Jon & Samantha. You might recognize them from the post with Drunky McDrunkerson who made an appearance in their engagement photos, or from her beautiful Storybook bridal portraits.
Luke and I were lucky enough to be the photographers on their big day. And what a BIG day it was! They put so much care and effort into the decor of this wedding, it was absolutely stunning! It was a Christmas Winter Wonderland!
So almost 4 months later, when Samantha & Jon probably already have their wedding pictures in frames and albums, I’m finally getting around to saying…congrats you two! It was such a pleasure to work with you!
www.StorbyookWeddings.org You might remember Jonathan or Bonnie from some previous posts here and here. Jackey and I were really looking forward to their big day, we knew it would be amazing! And just wait until you see this amazing Winter Wonderland that Bonnie & Jonathan had! Snow, sleighs, twinkles…you name it, Bonnie’s mother had thought of it and had worked hard to produce it. It was really something to behold!
Bonnie’s father was so proud. I love witnessing the moment before a bride walks down the aisle.
We had the most perfectly beautiful day for Nick & Kristy’s engagement session with Storybook (www.StorybookWeddings.org), it just couldn’t have been any better! Well, maybe less wind, but that just comes with the territory of fall, so no complaint! We had a great time and I’m looking forward to their big day!
