Cheyenne - SENIOR 2010

Cheyenne hails from my home town of Velma! WOO WOO! :)
I remember when she was just a kid!!! ;) Wow - these seniors are making me feel old!
After having to reschedule because of the rain, it started sprinkling on us during our session! But we were lucky & the weather held off - just barely! One positive - the bad weather makes for awesome sky shots!

Cheyenne was so much fun! She is a future photog herself, so maybe you will see her backing me up at a session soon!
Here Cheyenne is wearing her dad's old football jersey! SOO SWEET! I love it!

Kaylee & Jeremy = THE WEDDING

There is one word that describes Jeremy & Kaylee's wedding - CLASSY!
Everything was that exactly!
The wedding was so much fun to photograph. The church had the most beautiful stained glass window that made for THE perfect backdrop! And the reception was picture perfect! Their reception was at the Valley Vineyards and Winery in Pauls Valley. The place is spectacular! It is there that I discovered their "Chocolate Delight". WOW. It is absolutely divine. I'm a little obsessed.

I have to thank Tina Allen from Lanae Photography. She shot with me at the wedding. She is so much fun! It is nice to have a friend there to help calm the nerves - and it is a huge bonus when she is a kickin' photographer, too!

As you can see Kaylee is beautiful and cannot take a bad photo! She was a stunning bride.

Jeremy & Kaylee -
I wish the two of you a lifetime of laughs, love, & happiness!

Mariah is a senior at Ada High School. She has such a unique sense of style - I love it! AND she brought two outfits with purple in them - I am currently obsessed with purple - so I was happy!

LOVE these shots!!! The shots of her with the beautiful colors of the sunset are some of my favorites I have taken all year.
PLUS I think Mariah looks like Jessica Biel!

I have known the Campbell family forever. Seriously, forever. I have known Amy (the mom) since I was born! It makes me feel so old that the girls, Kirsten & Brooklyn, are growing up so fast.
They took me to some beautiful places for their family photos. It was a beautiful day!
Here are some of my favorites...

About five minutes into Ashley's session I was certain that I was terrifying her. It was absolutely freezing and I was running around like a mad man! ha ha! I was trying to hurry and get all the shots I wanted without freezing her to death. MAN it was cold! But Ashley was such a good sport! I had so much fun (even though I was FREEZING!!!) I have to say that Ashley is one of the most polite and respectful seniors that I have EVER worked with. There is no doubt in my mind that she is going to go far in whatever she decides to do in the future!
I love this one. It reminds me of America's Next Top Model.....

When I was in college I taught a gymnastics class. There were three ADORABLE little girls in my class that I just loved!
Skip forward 8 years....
Now I am photographing one of their senior portraits??? This can't be! I must be getting old! ;)

Hanna is a senior at Ada High School. Hanna has long beautiful hair and even longer more beautiful legs! ;) I think she should be a model!

We had a blast during her session. (Even though it felt like 100 mile an hour wind! And even though I somehow managed to step in dog poop while standing on a huge pile of rocks. HOW do I manage that!)

Newakis is a senior at Ada High School. She is a talented basketball player and a beautiful girl! She had some awesome ideas for her session. I love when that happens! She and her step-mother took me out all around their land. It was absolutely beautiful! (but I did spook the horse when my reflector popped open! ooops!!! )

LOVE this photo! It looks like a prom ad!

Joanna & Chase - The Wedding

Joanna and Chase had a beautiful outdoor wedding at one of the best venues I have seen in a long time! The Cliff at Cedarvale is THE hot new place to host your event. The grounds are beautiful and the staff is amazing! I fell in love with this place! I want to have a reason to throw a party now!
Joanna and Chase are absolutely gorgeous! I had such a blast photographing them. Two beautiful people + beautiful location to photograph = a photographer's dream! :)

Messersmith Family

The Messersmith Family won a gift certifcate I donated for a Velma Fire Department fundraiser after the recent fires. Luckily for me I have known this family since I was young. One of my earliest memories is of Sunnie singing in church. (awwwwwwww!!)

I had an absolute blast photographing this family. They are so much fun! AND the girls were so well behaved! (and that doesn't happened to me often) I thought the girls' little skirts & outfits were adorable.

The Messersmith family ROCKS! I can't wait to photograph Wil & Carly's wedding next summer, too!

McKenzie = Senior 2010

So I officially stink at this blogging thing! I have been too busy working!
(and I got really sick last week....no I did not have the swine flu. Maybe just the regular ol' stinkin flu) But not to worry - I am back! And I have about 15 sessions to post on here!

McKenzie's Fall Session
McKenzie is a senior at Byng High School. She is a golfer and she is also a sweet, sweet girl!
McKenzie works downtown at the Brown Box (which I frequent).

I absolutely love this photo! I think I actually clapped when I first downloaded it! (I'm such a nerd. I know.) Looking forward to her spring session now!
