Jimmy the Adventurer!

Had an awesome time with this little guy and his grandparents last weekend. We hung out on an airfield and inside this fantastic hanger with an odd dozen planes ranging from WWII to modern! Jimmy loves to fly, loves OSU, and loves his grandparents. It was really fun to be able to capture such a big part of Jimmy’s life and personality; here are just a few of the shots from our session!

Keep ’em flyin’ Jimmy!

Danny loves Beka

Winter is in full swing here in Oklahoma but there are a few days of truly beautiful weather sprinkled in for variety from the cold and that was exactly the type of day we had for this engagement shoot. I had such a fun time getting to know Danny and Beka a little better and I can’t wait for their wedding in March!

Starks Family Shoot : 2013

“They came to see that family need not be defined merely as though with whom we share blood, but as those for whom we would give our blood.” – Nicholas Nickleby

Meet the Starks family! Had such a great time the other evening out on shoot with these cool people. I’m so grateful for you guys, for your laugher and your fellowship, and for always being my home away from home.

Olsen Family Shoot : 2013

Someone once said, “You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.”

Well that is certainly true for this awesome family that I got to hang out with the other night. Meet the Olsen crew! Β This family is such a tremendous encouragement to me and I absolutely loved getting to hang out with them and a chance to document their story.

So without any further ado, here is Nate, Angie, Gavin, Jaden, and Elijah!

Mark loves Jillian : Married 2 Years

Jillian and Mark were married on November 11 two years ago and to celebrate, we found a beautiful park with incredible fall colors and had a lovely mini shoot.

I had a wonderful time with this very sweet and in-love couple, thanks for making it so much fun Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins! May you be blessed with many years of joy and grace.

Tom and Dee : Married 28 Years

This was a very special shoot for several reasons, one that it was to celebrate that this couple has stuck together for 28 whole years, and second, they’re my parents, and third, they both went on a diet this year and lost 40 pounds between them. They look pretty good, don’t you think? =)

Thanks for such a beautiful and fun evening, Mom and Dad, I love you and I am very proud of you!

Stephen married Sarah : June 1, 2013

I was pleased and honored to be the photographer at my friend Sarah’s wedding yesterday in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Sarah married my bestie’s older brother, Stephen so I’ve had a front row seat to watching their love story unfold and it was as lovely and perfectly suited to them as their wedding day, here is a sneak peek of this amazing day!

Sarah and Stephen, I hope that your lives together are wonderful and perfect and beyond your wildest dreams. May you always know peace and grace and joy.

Sarah and Stephen decided not to see each other before the wedding but they had a sweet quiet time of prayer hidden around a corner of the church.

We found a band stand and we said, “Yeah it is, it’s an AIR BAND STAND!”

Love me some bridal parties that know how to have a good time and rock some invisible instruments! πŸ˜‰

Ryan loves Rachel

One day there was a boy that fell in love with a girl, and finally she said she would marry him so we took some pictures!

This is Rachel and Ryan, they are getting married this summer and I am so excited for their wedding and to see their lives unfold together. They are so fun and adorable, and were great sports about the ferocious Oklahoma wind too. πŸ˜‰

Here is a sneak peek of their awesome engagement shoot:

Meaghan :: Senior 2013

The other night I went out on one of the most fun shoots ever… the weather was beautiful {a little chilly, but fantastic for early March!} and I got to hang out with this lovely girl right here. Meaghan is my friend and she is graduating this year. She’s going to study to be a nurse practitioner, oh and next week she is going on a spring break missions trip to Nicaragua… She’s really awesome like that. She is also hilarious and we laughed the entire shoot.

I like laughing. It’s good for my health.

Meaghan, you are so sweet and so lovely, dont ever let the world change you. Keep on being an incredible representation of Christ. May these next chapters of your life exceed your wildest dreams.

Stay beautiful,
