Catherine is a beautiful music theater Woman, who needed some head shots, and we snapped some fun shots along the way. As always. :) This girl is just too beautiful, when she came over I realized two things, A. this girl is wearing no make up and B. usually people wear a lot of make up for head shots, and usually I'd be scared if someone came to me without make up for head shots, but my goodness she is BEAUTIFUL. See for yourself,
I shot the maternity session of this loving couple when Gunner was still in Kylie's belly. Yesterday I had the blessing of meeting him, and shooting him at 3 months. He was a bit tired and cranky, though we got some adorable photos of him as a lion and candy corn! Aside from the typical cute baby photos, I wanted to capture a little something more. I will most the cute ones in a couple days, but there is something to be left unsaid and simply admired about the relationship between a mother and her child. Something truly only a mother and her child understand, something that remains untouched. I felt like I saw a glimpse of it yesterday, and to me, this is what it looked like.
The other Saturday it was raining cats and dogs here in Oklahoma. Something I've been missing, and wanting lately. Doesn't everyone love a rainy day where they can just snuggle up at home and enjoy themselves? Gwyn has just moved into this quaint little place, and when I went to home for the first time a couple weeks ago, I asked her if we could shoot in it sometime. You know that feeling when you see something you absolutely have to capture. Gwyn is one of those people, and her home just amplifies the whole presence. So on a rainy Saturday afternoon we got together, and we had an incredible shoot. I couldn't have wanted these images to come out any differently.
The other day I had the pleasure of meeting with some fabulous local photographers, Lenin Glass, Chris Odell, and William Chik. We all shot together and had a blast! Here are some of the photos I took of Lenin's beautiful girlfriend, Rebecca. She was not only easy to photograph, but is absolutely beautiful and really versatile.
Krista came to me for her senior photos, and we had a blast together! Her friend and mom came along, and the four of us made some incredible images. Special thanks to her mom and friend for holding the reflector, and special thanks to Krista's amazing curls, providing me with endless creative opportunity. She is going to go far, I love working with happy people that love their family and enjoy life. Here are some of my favorite snippets!
Faith came to me to do Senior, SENIOR photos- aka: Senior in college photos. I absolutely love the idea of this. Everyone needs to remember their college years and how they looked in their early twenties, not just when they were 17-18! When you're young, your appearance changes quite rapidly, so those 4 years make quite the difference, and it's important to document that. A little something to add: all of her hair? It is REAL. So are her incredibly blue eyes. :) Here are some of my favorite 100% candid/natural shots.
