You should recognize one of these gorgeous faces from a few of my other blog posts. Marisa was such a fun muse to have while I was in California, she helped me out quite often with different posts I would need to get done. So I was beyond honored when she hired me to photograph her yearly anniversary shoot! I just love that this adorable couple makes time to schedule sessions each year to be able to look back on. And in each of their sessions you will see these chalkboards, as their love grows stronger so does that first number marking the years.
Marisa I adore your strength and your heart, I wish you and your husband so many more years of happiness, adventures, and memories! Thank you once again for coming into my life and being the beautiful soul you are!

Say hello to sweet little 9 month Dominick!

This sweet little guy and I became fast friends during the year I was blessed to watch him grow. It is totally sad to think he now has a new baby sister, Where does the time go? For Dominick’s 9 month session his family and I did a fun in-home session. Children are just way more comfortable in their own homes so bringing out a camera is a little less scary for them it seems. Capturing Dominick in his environment though was such a blast, he was just about everywhere quicker than you could blink. So his momma for sure has her hands full if baby sister is anything like him. He was one of my favorite newborns to photograph with his gorgeous chunky self, and he just got bigger for his 3 month session, and crawled everywhere during his 6 month shoot. I still have his super fun 1 year session to share with y’all so keep an eye out for that!

If you are interested in your own in-home session of you and your family please hit that message tab above! I’d love to capture moments where you are most comfortable!

What better way to come back than sharing images of one of my beautiful nieces. I’d consider this a bang! But maybe that’s just my auntie goggles, either way it is a win in my book. The goal now is getting two posts up a week. past sessions, until I get caught up will be going weekly. And like I attempted to do in 2015 with my Project 52, I hope to start a new project that will be posted weekly or close to it. So lots in store for this little space of mine on the inter webs.
It is hard to believe she will be 16 next month, but it has been so fun watching her age and her personality change as the years went by. I took these images when I was visiting them to meet little Remy and photograph her newborn images. It was fun exploring close to my brothers house with her Bethanie and my camera in tow. Now that I live here in Lawton not too far from them be expecting more of this beautiful face and her siblings here on the blog.

friend·ship    /ˈfren(d)SHip/      noun        the emotions or conduct of friends; the state of being friends.
I had a whole big plan to go through all my old cd’s of pictures and get the best ones of some of my siblings and I to post. You know those cd’s from walmart that you would pay a little extra for when you would get your disposable camera developed. Yeah I have like 20 or more, I was that girl with those little throw away cameras always in my hand. But that big awesome plan of mine failed when I waited till the last minute as usual to get this together, only to remember my even more awesome IMac doesn’t have a cd reader – duh! So you can bet I added an external CD reader to my need to buy list. So scrolling through Facebook had to suffice for this post.
Having a sibling is like having a built in best friend. We fight and push each other’s buttons, but my siblings and I have always had each other’s backs no matter what. I can think back to many different over the top fights between my siblings and I, but I can also remember each time we came to one another’s rescue. Regardless if we were standing up to a parent who we felt was punishing the other too harshly or another kid thinking they could bully one of us. I wouldn’t be the same person without all my brothers and sisters teaching, testing and watching me through out this crazy life. Being in the middle I had the best of both worlds. I had the protective older siblings and had to protect my younger siblings as well, all of that taught me a lot and I still stand firm I’m so glad my little brothers didn’t have only me as the older sibling because I failed at that more times than I could count, but that is where our older brother got the job done. Of course I have to get mushy and over share about my late brother, Billy, who clearly is in most of the pictures. the anniversary of it all starts tomorrow. I can’t help but do the count down and relive all those moments. But I will stop myself there and spare y’all 🙂
All that spill is because now I get to watch all my nieces and nephews be blessed like I was, with built in friends. It is amazing seeing my siblings in each child, and seeing the birth order came alive in them as well.

When I got to hold this sweet girl for the first, I literally could not believe my eyes. Her red hair, her perfect amount of chub – who am I kidding any and all amounts of chub is perfect – but little Remy could not of been more perfect to me. It is just unreal that her 2nd birthday is fast approaching, just does not seem fair how fast time goes by. These little ones change every day almost, I have been so blessed to be able to watch her change over the past year. This reason is why I love what I do, some things are so hard to remember about teeny little newborns. I take my job pretty seriously capturing your new little ones and all their teeny details so you won’t ever have to forget. Remy was a dream and slept so soundly for our session that lasted about half a day. Hey when you are family you don’t put timelines on sessions and you just keep shooting, plus we had to wait for the oldest brother to get out of school so might as well shoot until then, right?! Enjoy these images from her newborn session and just know she and the rest of her family will be all over this blog slowly but surely, even more than they already have been. The pros of living in the same town as them finally.
