Baby Margaret ·Lifestyle Newborn Photography·


Hello Dears!

I don't know about you, but I think this winter has dragged on long enough! I'm wanting to thaw out a little bit so I'm going to take you back in time to the fall where the colors AND temperatures were a little warmer.

I was invited to photograph Baby Margaret and her family at their beautiful home in Weatherford, Oklahoma.  (I never mind traveling for work, but when I found out there was a Quiznos close to their home I was like YES. I miss Quiznos, y'all.) Big sister Nellie was enamored with her baby sister and I'm sure they will grow up to be thick as thieves!  I always ask if parents have any special heirlooms they'd like to include in the photos, and it's so fun to see what they include! We photographed baby Margie next to a portrait of her namesake, as well as both sisters with a painting by both of their namesakes.  I love it when names have meaning behind them, especially when it's given to honor the legacy of a special person in that family's life.

(This is also a great segue into my favorite PSA: Print your photos!! This image would not be possible had the family not printed and protected their portraits! ☺️)

Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Lilliana ·OKC Newborn Photographer·


Hello Dears!

I had the privilege of documenting this sweet family while they were in the hospital for their Fresh 48 session and I was just as excited to have them visit the studio for a newborn session shortly after.

You may think that a few weeks isn't a long time, but you know how 1 human year = 7 dog years?  Two weeks in newborn time is HUGE.  It's not uncommon for some babies to grow as much as 2 inches in the first two weeks! Their faces change so much.  Their little eyes are starting to focus and they're becoming more comfortable and secure in this very loud and bright world.   The babies aren't the only ones that change during those first few weeks.  When I see parents during a Fresh 48 session, they're usually still in the shock of it all (I mean...who wouldn't be?).  When the time comes around for their newborn session, it's tremendous the amount of confidence that has grown in that short time span.  Tasks that were slightly terrifying in the beginning have become second nature.  They know what each of the different cries mean (yes! babies cry differently for different reasons!). Everyone is settling into their new normal, and I love capturing that transition in a family.

It came as no surprise to her parents that Lilliana was a total dream during her session. She slept through the whole thing and made my job super easy! Truth be told, I'm almost as smitten with this session as Charisa and Jeremy are with their sweet girl!

Thanks for stopping by!

Whew!  Now that we've got that squared away let's turn our attention to Baby Archer and his wonderful family.  I first met Bethanie and Eric during now big sister Caroline's newborn session back in 2015.  I've loved watching Caroline grow and change over these past 2 years and I was absolutely thrilled that I now get to experience that with Archer as well!  We did Caroline's newborn session at Bethanie and Eric's home in Edmond, but we were unable to do the session in their home this time because they are in the process of building a GORGEOUS home in Choctaw.  They still wanted to have a lifestyle session and fortunately I am able to do that in the studio, so they still got the look and feel they desired for these precious memories.  

Archer has everyone is his family absolutely smitten, including his big sister.  Her favorite thing to do right now is press her cheek against his tiny face, which is so adorable. And what parent doesn't love that precious show of affection smack dab in the middle of flu season, amiright? 😂

Most photography sessions that involve newborns or young children can be very unpredictable but you know what? That's life!  I know that it makes parents nervous or anxious when their children can't stop sticking their tongues out or running around.  Heck, I even feel that way when we have family portraits done with our son! me when I say that's when the real magic happens.  Tickles, silly faces, and belly laughs are the things I live for and, despite how chaotic it might seem, those moments are so beautiful and you will cherish them forever.

You made it! Woo!

This is the part I'm SUPER excited about! We are now offering "home movies" as an add-on option to any session! Squeee! I secretly shot video during this session and surprised Bethanie with this film at her portrait viewing. After the few I've made for clients so far, it's safe to say I'm in love! My little man turns 4 soon (wut) and I can't wait to do a fun interview with him so I can always remember how silly and sweet he is right now. It will pair nicely with some wine and a full box of tissues because howismybabygrowingupsofastidontwanttoforgetanyofit.
