You're learning how to do what? Welcome to Oklahoma.

My friend knows how to dream big. And she's not afraid to be taught new tricks. There is no way on earth that two years ago we would have ever thought barrel racing was in her future. And yet, here we are, on a ranch, watching her run this horse like she's been riding her whole life. She's been bucked off, shaken up, and got right back on. This girl knows how to live life to its fullest. And I'm thankful she's not afraid to chase after those big ol' dreams of hers.

The Many Faces of Jacob Benjamin: Senior Portraits

It's been a big two weeks for my second oldest nephew, Jacob. He turned 19 on Monday, he graduates from high school on Sunday and he heads off to Europe next Thursday. He is the funniest, most daring 19 year old I know. Truly. Maybe even ever - forget about boxing him to his age category. And my heart skips a beat every time I hear him say "Aunt E", even if he does pronounce it "Awnt E" just to drive me crazy!

Here's to you, Jacob. And to a lifetime of laughing and exploring. I love you, kiddo.

You have no idea how perfect it was that we "trespassed" to take his pictures. That's my boy.

Jack: Senior Portraits

Last Fall was so insanely busy that I just stopped blogging. I had so many photo shoots that it was all I could do to shoot them, edit them, and deliver them to clients. And somehow in the middle of it all, squeeze in a trip to California. Since January is definitely a slower month with photography, I'm going to take this time to go back through them and post them now. There will be babies, kiddos, families, weddings, and of course, high school seniors. That's where Jack comes in...

Jack is obsessed with Apple. And Steve Jobs. It's a natural, healthy obsession really, and one that I wholeheartedly endorse. I met Jack and his mom on a dreary, rainy day at My Studio which is located in downtown Tulsa. The Great Outdoors is my favorite studio of all, but for this particular shoot we needed a different feel and we needed privacy. My Studio turned out to be a perfect alternative to what I usually do. And it challenged me in the process to be a better photographer, to keep learning and growing.

I loved how our little Steve Jobs inspired photo shoot turned out. So here's to Jack, and his Apple rocking ways!

Elizabeth: Senior Portraits

My sister-in-law is beautiful, vibrant and full of life. Her personality is colorful. The state fair and the candy store fit her more than you could ever imagine. She's that awesome. I've known this kid since she was 4 years old I think - I've been around these Conrads long enough to, well, become one. And I think her path is going to be one that exudes happiness and sunshine. It already does - that's just her way. But I'll let you see for yourself...
