He puts up with me.

I bought a new lens last week and I thought what better subject to try it out on than my brother, right? I pretty much fell in love with this lens. It makes my heart so happy and I can't wait to use it more and more!

I love my brother too. I think he loves me. Not quite sure by the look on his face here but I'm gonna chalk that up to a camera pointed in his direction and not so much a feeling toward his baby sister specifically.

Really?

The inevitable eye roll. It's ok, go ahead and pull your eyes down from the sky.
eric

Good. Now pose. Because he might as well make the most of this camera and apparently I'm not going anywhere anytime soon.
eric

The smile. We won't get into the smile. Suffice it to say, it gets him what he wants and always has :)
eric

And the classic. Open you eyes! This has been a problem for awhile and the reason I take multiple pictures of him at a time.
eric

And finally a plea to whoever is standing close by to get his sister away from him.
eric

He may put up with me, but I think he secretly likes it. Don't you, bro? Okay, okay...

I'm outta here! Pin It

Kris & Jenn: Maternity

One of the things I like most about doing photo shoots is getting to meet new people and capturing a moment in their life for them. But I must say there is something really special about getting the opportunity to photograph your dear friends and such is the case with Kris & Jenn. I've known Kris since I was 10 years old and when he started dating Jenn, we instantly hit it off.

Kris makes me laugh. Hard. And you can just count me as gone if he busts out the high kick. I think that is seriously one of my favorite things. And Jenn, well we share a mutual love for pepsi coolies, the card game Nertz and baby talkin' our puppies. I'm thankful to have these people in my life and count them as lifelong friends. And now with a little one on the way there is only more love to go around. So here we go, Baby Ryan Elizabeth's first photo shoot...

My love is strong.

Please forgive me.

I've been away.

I don't like being gone for so long.

I miss you.

But I've been busy.

Climbing fire towers.
fire tower.

Enjoying the forest.
yep.  this is oklahoma.

Learning about trees.
survivor.

And stopping long enough to remember just how beautiful wildflowers are.
wild.

Did I mention I did all this and never left Oklahoma? That's right. We have trees. And while I could never give up my wide open spaces, I never have to. We have it all right here in the Sooner State. Don't get tired of me, please, but I can't help myself...

I love Oklahoma. Pin It

Matt & Lisa: In Love

Seven years of marriage, two babies, countless campaigns, and one blackberry later they are more in love than ever. We met on the grounds of Tarp Chapel and Gardens to capture these moments. They ignored me for the most part and were completely focused on each other (except for SOMEone who would ocassionally glance at his blackberry but I'm not naming names, I'm just sayin'). It was incredibly refreshing to be around a couple who have been together awhile but are still completely into each other. And come on, it doesn't hurt that Lisa is fabulously gorgeous now does it?!

Another thing that's gorgeous? Tarp Chapel and Gardens. It's the perfect setting for weddings and engagement shoots and I was thrilled to get to shoot there. Everything was so green (thank you rain!) and intimate and romantic. So if you're thinking about getting married there - do it! And then hire me to shoot the wedding ;)

Now on to the beautiful couple...

I think this first image is my absolute favorite. Love.

Polaroid love. And just in case you wondered, my clients get to keep their polaroid for their very own. I'm that nice ;)
