Fearfully & Wonderfully {tulsa birth photography}


I don’t even know where to start.  If you’re a mother, you know what I mean.  And Brooke knows exactly what I mean, too.  I’ll begin by saying that these pictures are very minimally edited.  This is not about flawless skin or perfect lighting.  Rather, this is an open and honest look at the work and the prize of giving birth.  Although I will mention that these few images have been carefully chosen with both you, my average viewer, and the privacy of the mother in mind.
There’s just something about giving birth, that instills in us a deep respect for each other and makes us want to stand up straighter.  I for one, after giving birth to my son, gained new perspective as well as a greater appreciation for my own mother and all mothers.
southcrest hospital birth with tulsa photographers Gary & Brooke planned to do a home birth, but Baby Girl didn’t want to come out.  I’ve never known anyone to be pregnant for over 43 weeks, but now I can say that I have.  Brooke did not get an epidural, she chose a natural birth.

Emily & Danny’s Storybook Engagement Session {tulsa photographers)


Did you ever meet someone briefly and think to yourself  “I like them!” and you can’t even put your finger on why?  Well, that’s exactly what it was like to meet Danny and Emily.  I only spent a short amount of time with them, so it’s not like I know their life history, all I can say is that I like them!  And I’m absolutely looking forward to their wedding day!  Which just happens to fall on my very own 12 year anniversary!

Shelly & David’s Wedding party {tulsa photographers}

David & Shelly’s Storybook Wedding Party

David & Shelly got married on a ship, in the sun, in the ocean, in the middle of nowhere.  Lucky ducks!  Anyway, they didn’t invite us to the wedding but they invited Storybook to their reception.   So  Luke and I were happy to take a break from the usual weekend weddings to photograph their party!

I’m leavin’ on a Jett plane… {tulsa photographers}

(Technically, I’ve been back for 2 weeks now.  But it makes a great [read: cheesy] pun since this cutie’s name is Jett).  Jett’s kind of a rockstar around here, and you might remember him or his older rockstar brother from here or here.    I can’t believe how big he’s getting!

Annie & Beau’s Storybook Engagement Session

With names like “Annie” and “Beau”, how could I possibly not like this couple immediately?!  In fact, I knew I liked them before I even met them!  (But now I’ve met them and I like them even more.)
