I don't get too many teenage clients aside from Seniors, but I sure enjoy it when I do. They are SO much fun, and these girls were no exception. Cute and Crazy. =)
Here are just a few for ya, Judi! I'll have the rest soon....
Last week, Barry and I flew down to shoot Megan and Brandon's wedding in Puerto Vallarta. Had a great time! But.... it put me very behind as far as work goes. That part is not so great. I couldn't help but proof a few photos from the wedding day, though. LOTS more to come soon, as well as some personal "vacation" photos we took. =)
Last week, Kelly and I joined forces once again and tackled another wedding. I'm really starting to enjoy myself and not stress out so much during the day. Kelly on the other hand..... oh, I'm kidding, she's not that bad. ;)
Here are a few of the moments we captured on their special day. Jaimee and Josh, thank you so much for allowing us to share in your day. It was truly beautiful.
Spent a gorgeous evening with these guys this week. We started off inside their home and then headed outside for a bit.
I am SO pleased with these shots! I think we captured some really great moments while just outside playing around. I love it when a client asks me to visit their home. I feel like it takes a little pressure off, allowing them to feel more comfortable and the children really seem to enjoy themselves in their own environment.
Anyway, here's the sneak-peek for Kelly and Clint! Hope you like...I'll have the rest for you soon. =)
I am WAY behind in posting my sessions here on the ol' blog, so I decided to just start with the most recent and work my way back. (we'll see how far I get. Ha! )
I met up with these guys last night. Old friends from School.... it was fun to see how they are doing and chat about us being all grown up with kiddos. ;) I had a great time! I know they were a bit worried I wasn't able to get much....but I assure you I did. I'm telling ya, I do what it takes. Whether it's crawling through duck droppings or running backwards and falling on my butt, I get the job done.
Totally embarrassing myself in the process, but whatever. =)
Liz & Allen... I hope you like! I'll have the rest for you soon.
a.k.a. Wedding No. 4 for Kelly and I. We have one more scheduled together and then I'm on my own for two more this year. Yikes!
Okay, so this is my little cousin Ryan. I remember back in the day when she use to sit on my lap so I could play with her hair....it was SO long and just gorgeous. Can't believe she's old enough to be married already.... Oy.
So... they got married at the OKC Farmers Market downtown and it was nothing short of awesome. Really cool colors, textures, a great mix of old and new...I'd love to shoot some seniors there.
Here are some that jumped out at me after my first run through.....
Running towards the elevator as quick as we could on our way outside to take some pictures. Didn't want anyone to see her! (something about the colors and motion in this pic make me giddy, no...it's not perfect, but nor am I)
Edited to add: I almost forgot to post these. You see.... John and his buddies were playing a little trick on little ol' Ryan. One of the groomsman came up to her before the wedding wearing this red bow tie and she about died! He had her convinced he was going to wear it during the ceremony and that it was the only tie he had. She had major hatred for this thing. So what does John do? He forces me to play along and take some pics of him wearing it. Ryan...I apologize, really. hehe
I know she must hate it every time she hears me say her name. I butcher it. Which is unfortunate, because it is a great name! For some reason it is just so hard for me!! I've almost resulted to just thinking up a cute little nick-name for her, but I think I've finally figured out how to make myself remember: Shalana like Banana. I use to say Shu-lane-uh....and when she came over to babysit my kiddos Julie called her Shu-wayne-uh. I'm sure she loved that. Ha!
Anyway....she's the sweetest thing and cute as all get out. And I guess she doesn't hate me too much, because she let me shoot her senior portraits. Yay!!
I promised her I'd post a few before I headed to bed tonight and here they are:
So, I'd never made such a fool out of myself at the last session...so that was a first. Well, this session from the other day had me running around the park like I've never had to do before! This little guy was on the move, man. As if he had just finished off a dozen cans of RedBull. ;)
BUT.... I somehow managed to get some keepers. Here are a few of my favorites:
I don't think I've ever made such a fool out of myself or laughed so much at a session before. This little one just didn't find me amusing. Unless I was singing "I like to move it move it! I like to move it move it!" In full Madagascar fashion. They clued me in on how much she liked that song and all things Princess so while her mama sang Sleeping Beauty's "Once upon a dream" (and she knew ALL the words! I was impressed!) Grams, Auntie and I sang and roared like Alex the lion. ;)
These girls were up for anything. Laying all the way down on the concrete sidewalk and walking barefoot in duck poop..... seriously...loved these ladies!
And we got some awesome shots because of it.....here are just a few.
