Baby Claire ·OKC Studio Newborn·


Hello Dears!

Happy Monday, friends! It's a good day to have a good day, so let's start things the right way-- by doting over newborn babies. And maybe some ice cream? That's just how we do things around here. 

 I first started working with Karena and Rychy a few years ago, before they became parents. I captured their Christmas card photos around the Chesapeake lights when it was just them and their fur baby Cesar. It wasn't long after that I was capturing Cooper's first year, and now I'm beyond excited to be capturing baby Claire's first year.

Big brother Coop did great for the photos! One big perk of the Plaza studio is that there are LOTS of yummy spots within walking distance, so siblings can cool off with a cone while we take the individual newborn portraits. (When all else fails, we've got Netflix.) I particularly love the portraits of Karena and Claire, because there's really nothing more beautiful than a mother loving on her brand new baby.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Dears!

Something I love about what I do is I get to watch people's stories unfold. I get to capture the most exciting times of people's lives and then see what happens next. Talk about the best job ever.

 I photographed Brooke and Beau's wedding in 2014, and I can honestly say they are two of the sweetest, most down-to-earth people I've ever met. It's no surprise that baby Gia inherited those genes. Once I swaddled her, she fell right asleep and didn't wake up until the very end of the session! Talk about a dream. 

Everybody knows I'm a sucker for a good rug, and Gia's nursery did not disappoint! I really love all of the photos of Gia on the different patterns and textures from her nursery. The photos have such personality and uniqueness--I love that. Her big brother Isaak made an appearance for a few of the photos, but hanging out with friends is WAY cooler than newborn photos at that age, so we let him off the hook pretty early.

Basketball is pretty much life for the Gerber family, so I made sure to bring my Thunder Up headband from local makers Love Well Handmade for a few photos. It looked absolutely darling on Miss Gia Ryan, but that's nothing short of a surprise!

Hello dears!

I'm so excited to share this session with you, as it happens to be one of my favorite newborn sessions ever.  Olivia's mom contacted me about a month before her due date to discuss newborn photos and after my initial response, I didn't hear anything for a while.  I didn't think anything of it, because time seriously flies in those last few weeks of pregnancy.  As it turns out, Jessica went into labor not long after she contacted me!  (Seriously, what's with all these early babies this year??)

I was a little worried that we might not get some of the sleepy newborn shots because Olivia was 3 weeks at her session, but she sure did prove me wrong.  She was a little wide-eyed at first, but after a belly full of milk and some good swaddles, she slept like a champ through the rest of her session!

Jessica and Brad's home was the perfect setting for their portraits.  Even though a mini monsoon blew through while we were shooting, you'd never know it because their home had  Calling dream house, party of one!  We were even able to catch a little sunshine towards the end of my time there, which allowed us to take advantage of some seriously gorgeous wildflowers in their backyard.

Now, onto the good stuff....
