LaChelle and Jesse

LaChelle and Jesse were the winners of my second chance wedding photos contest. I shot their session in Stillwater on a beautiful summer night. I had so much fun shooting the session since there was no pressure of a wedding day timeline. For some reason we drew so much attention to ourselves and everyone went out of their way to say Congratulations to the happy couple. It was so much fun!

Here is a reminder of their original wedding photo.
I was so happy to give them some beautiful new photos!


Everyone was hootin' and hollerin' at them!
This was a sweet and real moment:







Congratulations you two! I look forward to my next contest!

One step closer...

Aidan learned how to ride a two-wheeler on Sunday! We had practiced with him before but it finally just clicked with him and after a couple of pushes he took off! I was really emotional and sadly didn't have my camera with me but I got these shots the next day. I'm such a proud mama and it's just another reminder how fast life flies by!

Sylvia and Grady - outdoor Lonsdale session

I've been photographing Sylvia since she was a baby and now she has a brand new baby brother!

Sylvia LOVED getting her picture taken! She just posed and laughed and I happily snapped away!
While Sylvia was getting dressed, I went back to my studio to grab a chair... when I came back with my blue chair, Sylvia was dressed in this... it couldn't have been more perfect for my set up!
my favorite...



This is just too cute for words. I hope that this shot is cherished forever.

baby Grady born June 16, 2009... he is so cute and sweet, I just couldn't get over it.

Megan and Tom

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Megan over the last few months. She is another local photographer and a blast to work with! She entered my second chance wedding photos contest and when she didn't win, she wanted me to do photos of her and her husband anyway. We had fun exploring Grand Avenue on a warm summer night.

Lucy and "Bake" - Central Park

I've been photographing Lucy since she was a baby so it's a little crazy to see her running around and talking a mile a minute! She calls her little brother Gabe, "Bake," so Gabe has an affectionate new nickname that just sort of sticks with everyone.
