The Tidwell Kiddos

Talk about some of the sweetest little boys! These two were so funny and full of life. I just loved spending an evening with them, capturing their love for each other and their beautiful mom. I always love being able to share in the intimate moments of couples and families and this was no exception. It was such a blessing that they happened to be in the Tulsa area for the week so we could get these beautiful shots. One of the funniest things the oldest said was when I asked him what his favorite place about home was he said “My house is in Texas and I like that.” For any of my good friends that know me and know my general despise for the state of Texas, I couldn’t help but laugh and think this kid had a convincing argument.

The Fitzgerald Family

I was so excited to get to work with my old friend Kim, her husband, and little girl. Kim and I knew each other from high school softball and so it was wonderful to get to spend some time with her and catch up on life. Their little girl is one of the cutest and sweetest little girls I have ever seen! Hopefully I’ll get to work with them in the future when their new little girl joins the house.

Lang Kiddos

I have been lucky enough in my photography to continue working with some of the same clients while I watch their families grow. It’s such a great thing to be a part of because the only thing I get to see grow is my dogs and they’re pretty much done with that. My friend Kara has three of the sweetest kids and I always love taking their pictures. We made a little trip down to the Arkansas River here in Tulsa and let the kids spend some time down by the water. It was great to see how intrigued they were by everything.

Hawaii 2012

About a month and a half ago my mom, two sisters and I all went on a family vacation to Hawaii. It was so amazing! One of the most extraordinary experiences I’ve ever had. We had been talking about how our family needs a break and needs to get away with all that has happened to us in the past two years. My mom asked where we wanted to go and my step-dad had always wanted to take all of us to Hawaii so that’s what we settled on. I cannot express how beautiful the whole thing was. Next time I would love to go to some of the other islands and spend some time in the less touristy areas but at the very least I can say that I’ve been to one of the most breathtaking places on earth.

James & Lacey – Wedding

I have to say that this wedding was one of the most fun I have ever had the privilege of shooting. These families are so funny and full of love and life! James and Lacey got married back in March with their parents present and then had this formal ceremony so nerves were low and everyone was relaxed.

I know it’s common for friends and family to want copies of pictures from these wonderful moments in life and for those individuals there will be a posting soon on how to order these shots so please stay tuned!

Catch-up

Ok so I just decided to just make one massive post about all the shoots I’ve done over the past few months. This is the easiest way to do this because there really is a lot and I’m just going to post some of the highlights.

Well, no post of mine would be finished correctly if I didn’t include some pictures of animals, and more specifically my dogs. This first image of a squirrel that I met in Colorado, the next is obviously Jimi.

Chicago

This is a severely late post but I’m trying to play catch up right now.

Over Thanksgiving my mother and 2 sisters and I all went up to Chicago. There was really no particular reason behind it, we just wanted to kind of get away from it all and have a little change. On the trip my Sister-in-law and her husband came and met up with us, bringing my AMAZINGLY funny niece and nephew. Talk about 2 people I could never love any more just because I don’t think it’s humanly possible.

We went and saw The Bean! It was was pretty big highlight of the trip.

Also on this trip, my nephew turned 4. His big gift from Grandma was to get to go to the Lego Store. I think the best part for the rest of us was we now had an excuse to go to the Lego Store. We all were playing with the pieces, building things, and OOOOing and AWWWing over the “Architecture Series” that Lego has now come out with.

It was a trip that I will never forget. I loved spending all this time with my family. I count myself very blessed.
