I love the Baker family so much! If you couldn’t tell by the images they are a large family! Ronnie & Ashlee are pastors of a church in midtown called Audacity.Church. Ashlee is an entrepreneur as well as the educator for all of her children at home (10 children to be exact). This family welcomed us in and helped us figure out how to be first time parents over a year ago! This session was crazy with kids everywhere and I loved every second of it. These are some of the best kids you will ever meet. They are kind, smart, talented, and genuinely love our family! I hope you enjoy this family session as much as I do! I especially love capturing photos but also capturing the family on video is so sweet.
WOW WOW WOW! This wedding is so beautiful and so special to my heart. Kathryn is one of my dear friends from high school and I was so honored to capture her special day! Frits and Kathryn are literally a match made in heaven! They love and compliment each other so well it is so fun to watch. I cannot wait to see what all God does through this union to change the world! But seriously this wedding was so simple and elegant and just so breathtaking! I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
We took a road trip this summer as a family from Waco, Tx all the way to Milwaukee, Wi. It was such a long trip but we had so much fun as a family! We got to stop in Chicago on the way for a few hours and see the bean! Amelia loved it! We did NOT love the price to park! Sheesh, it was crazy! I am not cut out for big city life at all, but I think Hank would thrive in one! Opposites really do attract! But we still had a ton of fun there and found a great vegan restaurant.
Hank was in a wedding in Milwaukee, so while Amelia and I waited for him to take all the pictures we explored the most beautiful neighborhood and found this house with the best garden and flowers I have seen! This is my dream for my house someday!!!
This session will tug on your heart strings! This sweet family has been fostering Gavin and I got to document and witness him officially becoming legally apart of their family forever! I loved all the emotion and support this family has for one another. And of course after you join a family you have a sweet party at the water park because its his favorite!
I am so grateful for our old church and the great friends we made! Skylar and Jarrett were apart of the youth group that we led there and we got to know this family so well! Plus they are so fun to work with! And they are willing to try anything I ask even if it seems weird in the moment. This session is probably one of my favorite sessions that I have ever done! The tickling each other shots are so real and raw and I LOVE all of the different reactions! I think they capture who this family is, they are fun, silly, and love spending time together! Also the weather was amazing (we were a tad bit afraid of the rain but those clouds!) and this location is divine! It has so many different looks and feels on one property!
I LOVED being apart of Brian and Lauren's special day! Being able to capture a bride and groom's wedding day still gives me butterflies. Lauren had such a clear vision vision of what she wanted her day to be and she nailed it! I loved all of her sweet details that helped her guests focus on her and Brian's love for each other! So happy for their marriage and to see their love grow! Congratulations Brian and Lauren and best wishes on your new life together!
Still swooning over this sweet and simple wedding ceremony. I had the privilege to film this special day and capture a few before photographs for some of my dear friends Kara and Barrett. This wedding was about their love for God and their love for each other. My favorite part was how they honored one another by washing one another's feet at the very beginning of the ceremony. Such a humbling beginning to a marriage. I still am in awe of this sweet union and cannot wait to see their love blossom and grow!
Congratulations Barrett and Kara again on your beautiful day and your beautiful marriage!
"It's bigger than clothes for me."
Rachel's heart and reason behind selling Lularoe is so powerful! Every goal she has for her business and for her life is always focused on impacting those around her. She was such a joy to work with and I love how genuinely passionate she is about what she does!
Magic! This session was pure magic! They are such a great match it was so easy to capture their love and excitement! I have known Kara for quite some time and am so excited to see her getting married and to be apart of capturing their special day! Also engagement videos should be a normal thing! The great thing about this shoot was they were getting their engagement pictures done at the same time and the photographer and I got to work together and bounce some cool ideas during our time with this couple! You get two amazing things with one session, amazing pictures to frame and also a video to watch many years down the road!
WOW! Spring!!! Seriously this session makes me so happy! I had the best time shooting the Jelicich's family session! It was so nice to just walk around in the beautiful weather and take pictures! And I cannot get enough of these colors! I really wish spring lasted longer. We had so much fun and Eliza kept us laughing and smiling the whole time! She is just precious! Still booking spring sessions!
This shoot has me swooning!! I had the pleasure of capturing the sweet romance between one of my dearest friends and her fiancé! They are truly made for each other! And it makes my job so easy! They had me laughing so hard during the entire shoot my cheeks hurt by the end! I LOVE capturing love! Congratulations to the happy couple and I cannot wait for your wedding!
Sweet little Lana's newborn home session was so sweet! Home sessions are one of my favorites because its very natural and easy going. Everyone is comfortable and relaxed especially baby which makes the shoot a lot smoother with a happy little one! Taking her pictures was so neat because I have known her mother ,Mikala, my whole life. Being able to share this sweet moment in time of us becoming mothers so close together and being able to share the good, bad, and exhausting parts of motherhood has been so incredible. I am so blessed to capture these special moments in peoples life and it makes it sweeter when they are your friends.
I love products with a purpose, and that is why I loved this branding shoot with Kibibi Design. They sell handcrafted artisan designed goods from Kenya. I love the owner and her heart for these women and for East Africa! They pay their artisans fair wages for their beautiful work, and they are now working on building sustainable businesses for them and they give back the profits into projects helping women and children in East Africa.
"Kibibi (pronounced key-BEE-bee) is an endearing word in Kiswahili that can mean, "Princess". We have no doubt that each woman is valuable and we want the women who make our products and the women who receive them to know they are cherished."
Be watching for a Kibibi Design commercial very soon! But in the meantime check out their website at kibibidesign.com and visit them at Affair of the Heart Tulsa.
This had to be one of my favorite shoots I have ever done! One because I love Swan Bros. Dairy, inc. and their amazing cheese and raw milk! YUM! Two because the family at Swan Bros. Dairy has to be more fantastic than the products they make and sell. And believe me when I say their products are sooo good! You must try their products! You can visit their farm to buy Grade A raw milk, cream, and cheeses or you can visit the Broken Arrow farmer's market for cheese and soon you will be able to order it from their website!
I had the privilege of photographing sweet little Emery while she was at the hospital! This session was so precious just like her and her lovely mama Jordan. I loved this session, it was such a calming and relaxed shoot, and I cannot wait to photograph little Emery as she continues to grow!
It is so good to be back in the states! And so excited to use the first day of the beautiful weather shooting Isaac's senior portraits! They turned out so good and I was honored to get to do his!
I LOVED this shoot! We had so many cool locations and outfits! I am so proud of this girl and I am so excited to see where he future takes her! She is so talented and God has a great plan for her life.
