Amanda’s Bridal Portraits {Sparrow}

Amanda is as gorgeous on the inside as she is outside! I’ve loved the opportunity to work with her and her new husband, Justin. Here were some of my favorites from her bridal portrait session earlier in May. Sparrow is Stillwater’s newest wedding venue, located south of town, it offers so many beautiful spots for pictures with mature trees, awesome views and of course the stunning barn that has just been built! Check out that first picture on the right… I didn’t see that butterfly until I pulled the pictures up on the computer, and of course immediately sent it over to Amanda 🙂 Bouquet by Garden Party Florist.

Maggie’s Bridal Portraits {Rosemary Ridge}

Maggie and Michael were married Friday and I’ve been patiently waiting to share some of my favorites from her bridal portrait session!! It was a potentially stormy day that cleared up and gave us some awesome skies to work with!

Laura and Brian {Stillwater Wedding}

Laura and Brian were married at First United Methodist Church with the reception following at Meditations. This was a special wedding to photograph because Laura and I were classmates in school; I’m so thankful she met a great guy like Brian! Memorable moments that stood out to me were the family relationships, the bubble exit after the ceremony, and all the DANCING at the reception! Definitely a lively crowd for dancing, which is always a fun way to celebrate! Here’s a recap of the wedding day through some of my favorite pictures. At the end of this post I have listed the professionals who were involved. Thank you to Brittany Smith for doing a great job, 2nd shooting with me. Congratulations Laura and Brian!!!

Meditations has recently added this great area in their north courtyard. Such a great place for kiddos to get out some extra energy and have fun.

Newborn Boy and Family at Home!

Sweet boy at 9 days old, home with his adorable sister and wonderful parents!! I met this family last fall for family pictures and some cute “baby announcement” pictures. Here’s a preview from his session:

Catching Up!

It’s been a month since I last blogged… possibly because it’s been the month of May and I’ve always felt like it is one of the busiest months of the year. In this past month I’ve photographed celebrations of individuals completing college and high school, beautiful brides, couples joining their lives in marriage, couples expecting their first babies, and newborns, LOTS of newborns :)!!! It’s been awesome! I’m going to make an effort to get caught up on blogging the highlights of most of these portrait sessions. In the meantime, a quick recap of our family this month:

Ty LOVES playing catcher and he actually hissed at me when I suggested he might even try pitching sometime when he moves up to kid-pitch.
