Keith, Brenda, Lane & Levi Teel.....

I absolutely loved working with the Teel family. Lane & Levi were just so sweet, and I might add that they're just so handsome. Good luck Mom and Dad fighting off the girls! Their parents, Brenda and Keith, were terrific to work with as well. We had to sneak in some pictures of just the two of them.

I hope your family has a fantastic Thanksgiving. I know how important family is to you Brenda, and I'm sure your holiday will be filled with family and love. Thank you for sharing your family with me. I went home smiling just thinking of your adorable boys!!!!!

Josh, Laura, Dayona and BABY Minshull.....

This session was sooo exciting because the Minshull's had just found out they were expecting. Therefore, we had to take a picture to help them announce this great news to their friends and family. They did an excellent job on the posters, and I know that Dayona will be a great big sister.

I am so thrilled that the Minshull's--Josh, Laura and Dayona decided to share this great news with their friends and family through me. I can't wait for the new baby, and I can't wait to see this family again.

Thank you Minshull's!!!!

Paul, Mandy, Paige & Connor Hesse.....

Aren't these kids gorgeous!!!!!! I loved meeting Paul, Mandy, Paige & Connor Hesse. It was truly a great shoot with this family. They were easy going, and we found a crab apple tree that the kids just absolutely adored.

Thank you Hesse Family for spending the afternoon with me. Your kids adventurous side is very contagious!!! I wound up being just as curious in the crab apple tree as they did. Their excitement of life is spectacular! You've done a fantastic job with them, and I can't wait to see you in the future!

Jason, Adrianne, Zac & Ethan Selvidge

We had so much fun shooting this family's pictures!!!! This is my blonde family!!!!! They were all such a pleasure to work with, and Ethan (the baby) really had a mind of his own. I just followed him on his adventurous trek through the park. He's super cute. Zac (oldest boy) was so mature and sweet. I was just amazed at how grown up he was. He always made sure than Ethan was ok wherever he went. He's a great big brother. Thank you Jason and Adrianne for sharing your family with me. Your style is perfect, and I think it shines through in these pictures!!!!! See you soon!

Matthew, Kelly, Spencer, Maggie and Evan Wells......

This family is AMAZING! I don't have any other words to describe them. The kids were so sweet and very well behaved. They were just excited to get their pictures taken. Turns out, I have a connection to this family. I met them in Okc, but upon proofing their pictures, I was informed about who their family was here in Ada. It's so nice to meet people you have heard about.

I look forward to many more sessions with this family. Just really great all around. Maggie and Spencer--two oldest kids--just played and played and played. Evan, the baby never stopped smiling. Matthew and Kelly were just so laid back and very easy to work with. This made for one really awesome session.

Thanks Wells family!

Larry & Mellisa Yockey.......

I absolutely LOVE weddings! I love everything about the entire day, and the fun events leading up to it. This day was particularly special for two reasons....Larry and Mellisa are really good friends of mine, and I just couldn't wait for them to say I do.....second reason--I was able to shoot with Laura Tusek! It was just a terrific day all around.

There is not a picture that I could have taken where Mellisa wouldn't have been beautiful. She really made my job easy. I hope you enjoy looking at a few of their pictures from that special day. It just brings a smile to my face to see two people who love each other so much.

Thank you Laura Tusek and the Yockey's!

Congratulations Larry and Mellisa!

Brad, Nikki & Carly Lemon

Carly Lemons had me laughing. She did not want to have her picture taken. She wanted a milk shake!!!! Granted, she came around, and we had a blast. It's good to be reminded every now and then how intimidating my camera and lens are, especially when I'm a total stranger to kids.

The Lemon's family pictures are the perfect example of the style that I absolutely love to shoot, True Life. You'll hear it phrased documentary, Lifestyle, True Life.....it's my favorite because it's your family just as they are. I don't focus on making sure that everybody is looking at me just perfect for every shot. Sometimes people can get frustrated when their kids aren't in the mood to have their picture taken, but some of my favorite pictures come from shoots like that.
Carly was a doll, and she really kept me laughing. Brad and Nikki couldn't have been sweeter. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Lemons Family, and I will definitely never forget Carly. At the end of the shoot, I thanked Carly for playing with me. Carly's response....."Where's my milk shake!?"

Thank you Brad, Nikki and Carly for allowing me to spend time with your family.

Emma, Cooper, Amy & Brent.....

I absolutely enjoyed meeting this family!!! They were just as nice as can be, and we really had fun taking pictures. I could have taken pictures of Emma and Cooper all day. They were just as sweet and easy going as can be.
Thank you for spending your time with me to take your pictures. I can't wait to see Emma and Cooper grow up through the years.

Tyler and Oliver Cantrell.....

If I had to describe Oliver and Tyler with one word......FUN!!!!! We had a blast just playing around. It's photo shoots like this one that keep me wanting more! Oliver took a little while to open up to me, but the shot of him peeking at me through his eyes, to me, is priceless. Tyler is by no means shy and afraid of my camera!!!! We really had fun at this shoot.

If you would like to see more of Oliver and Tyler, they're family has a website that you can check out. It's really fun to watch them grow up this way. Abby and Jake have done a fantastic and creative job with them. Check it out if you get a chance. www.jakeabby.com.

Also, fellow photogs and everyone else, Jake has a company that works on computers, Macs and iPhones. Cantrell Solutions on Main Street in Ada. If you're anything like me, you'd rather drop them off instead of dealing with the frustration of working on them.

Thank you Jake, Abby, Tyler and Oliver for spending the day with me. I really and truly enjoyed every minute of it!
