Sophia: 3 Months

She was a PERFECT baby. She was all smiles with a few squirms and no fusses. Like, I said...perfect. Maybe it's because Daddy looks at her like she's the only little person in the entire world or because Mommy puts pretty bows in her hair. Either way, she was my kind of kid.

Meet Sophia.

Polaroid Love.

I'm still hoarding my shrinking stash of Polaroid film but sometimes I can't help myself. And that's how I reckon it should be.

Every August 3rd my mom and I release balloons in honor of her brother/my uncle who passed 4 years ago.

4 balloons, 4 years without him. It's how we remember.

This is the Wisconsin I fell in love with, otherwise known as America's Dairyland. And if you ever wondered why you don't see more cows in Wisconsin, it's because they're in the barns being milked. But that's another story for another day.

I've been wanting to capture this sign on my Polaroid camera for awhile now. It's dreamy, really.

Here's to hoping I never run out of my favorite kind of film! Pin It

Think you love Oklahoma?

I'm pretty sure they do.

Tubing: A Tutorial

As temperatures have risen across this state plateauing at a most uncomfortable 100+ degrees and leaving Oklahomans with hardly another choice, the Williams family has done what any respectable family would do and taken to the lake without looking back.

I spent a day with them recently at their lake house and on their pontoon boat to capture exactly what summertime means to them. And on this day, I learned a valuable lesson about tubing that I would like to pass on to my readers.

It's for your own good. I promise.

Step 1 - Don't let your sister drive the jet ski unless you are ready for a lifetime of paybacks all in about a 30 second time span.

Step 2 - Hold on for dear life but know full well that you are probably getting exactly what you deserve. Sorry, Brett, but I will ALWAYS side with the sister in a sibling rivalry.

Step 3 - Obviously, you weren't paying attention to Step 2 so I have no use for you now.

And just like that he's gone!

But no worries, little guy, we found your dad. And we're pretty sure he was having the time of his life.

But so was she.

Last night I painted the town.

With fire.

I met a twitter friend at one of my favorite spots to view the Tulsa skyline. Together we managed to burn my foot and singe his nose in our attempt to light downtown right on up. But in the process of playing with fire, we captured some pretty cool images if I do say so myself.

Check out Taylor's here. He's a rockin' photog.

Collaborating with others is a good thing for me, always inspiring.

Oh! And I just realized that one of my goals this year was to do an out of the box photo shoot. Does this count?! Pin It

Ryan: One Year

A few days before Ryan turned one, we did a full blown photo shoot complete with a perfectly lit downtown as a backdrop and a monkey cake to top it off.

I've known this family since I was 10 years old and am completely honored that they've entrusted me with documenting Ryan's first year on this planet. It has been a joy. Plus, I can't get over how much she looks like her dad's side of the family. It kills me!

BEWARE: this kid is so cute it might hurt you a little. Or melt you.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Sneak Peek Sunday!

This cutie pie turned one a few days ago. I might have captured her diving into a monkey cake. You'll just have to wait and see.

I can't believe tomorrow is Monday. My week is going to be insane. The kind that wears you out just thinking about it. So I'm taking it one day at a time. And I plan on enjoying every second of it, even if it means not getting enough sleep.

Because life is amazing.

And my friends have really good taste in music. Pin It
