Jordan + Jeff | Winter wonderland wedding at Renaissance Waterford Hotel in Oklahoma City

Draping crystals, metallic decor and linens, and vibrant red rose petal accents transformed Jordan and Jeff's November wedding at Oklahoma City's Waterford Renaissance hotel into a stunning winter wonderland.  Their wedding team included many of my personal favorite vendors from Oklahoma's wedding industry.  And they did not disappoint!  (click on the post title to read the full post)

Introducing the signature portrait series “In Mommy’s Wedding Dress” | For girls ages 3-8 | Sessions April 21 only

For ladies especially, our wedding day is one of the most important days in our lives...until we become a mom.  And then our kids become our everything.  I'm mom to a spunky almost 5 year old daughter, and as both a mom and a photographer, my kid is probably one of the most photographed kids around (ok, so that's pretty much every photographers' kids). LOL!  But my mommy heart loves that she and I will have all of those photos that document the various stages of her life and personality, both in professional portraits and every day candid photos.

Aleta + Drew | Enchanting rustic Fall wedding at Hillside Manor in Norman, OK

I don't often get to photograph weddings at rustic venues, so I was really looking forward to photographing Aleta and Drew's Fall wedding at Hillside Manor in Norman.  It was my first time photographing there, and it did not disappoint!  Beautiful location all round.  (click on the post title to read the full post)

Ballet-inspired portraits at the Classical Ballet School | Special edition portrait series for little kids

I can't express enough how much I loved doing my ballet-inspired portrait series sessions last Fall with kiddos ages 3-7.  As a former ballerina myself who has been out of the ballet world for some time now, it was an absolute treat getting to work with several little aspiring ballerinas (and even a little boy) to create these precious portraits.  (click the post title to read the full post)

After working with ICU nurse Kelli and PGA of Australia golfer Corey for their engagement portrait session this past Spring, I knew their April wedding at Gaillardia Country Club was going to be a really fun time.  They are so cute together and have an awesome sense of humor.  (click on the post title to read the full post)

Cozy Christmas portraits at a tree farm | Kayla + Ryan family portraits | OKC family photographer

I photographed Kayla and Ryan's wedding 3 years ago in December (happy anniversary, you guys!), and I was thrilled to get to do a wintery Christmas-themed anniversary session with them this Fall.  Kayla loves Christmas and pine trees, and she really wanted pine trees for their portraits.

Burton Fall family portraits | Playtime at Martin Nature Park | OKC family photographer

I love when I get the opportunity to photograph other photographers' families because it makes me realize that we're just like our clients when having our own family portraits taken.  Kids will be kids...pets will be pets.  The whole thing can get to feeling a little (or a lot) chaotic and stressful.  And by the end of it all, mom and dad may feel deserving of a little wine therapy.
