Tanja + Rickey ·Myriad Gardens Maternity Session·


Hello Dears!

It's a good Monday to have a good Monday, right friends? Today I get to share with you a beautiful maternity session, and I'm not playing around when I say beautiful. Tanja and Rickey couldn't have picked a better spot for their session-- the Crystal Bridge at Myriad Gardens. The color is just breathtaking, not to mention the stunning momma-to-be!

One of my favorite moments from the session was when Tanja, Rickey, and I bonded over Bernie Sanders, because #bernieforever. She also made the flower crown she's wearing in her session, and I think it was the perfect compliment to all the wonderful nature around them. I mean, who doesn't love a good flower crown?

Tanja is originally from Austria, so shortly after their session they flew to Austria so she could deliver there and spend time with family during those fresh newborn times. We all know how important it is to have support with a new baby around-- for sanity reasons on our part and for baby cuddles on their part. It's a win-win for sure! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Little Miss Lily ·6 Month Lifestyle Portraits·


Hello Dears!

I'm so excited to share this session with you! When Jimmy contacted me, he mentioned that he wanted pictures that really captured the natural essence of his family's personality, not the traditional posed portraits. It was also a 6-month milestone for sweet Lily, so the timing couldn't have been more perfect! We decided on a lifestyle session, because those are so great for little ones, and are perfect for getting those real moments.

We took the pictures in Jimmy and Tommy's beautiful home in the historic Lincoln Terrace in Oklahoma City. I was straight gleeful when I saw what a wonderful job Jimmy did when it came to decorating their historic home. He is the owner of the newly opened Interior Gilt on 23rd St, so I'm not the least bit surprised! Their home was so much fun to shoot in because I was able to play around more than usual.

Picking a favorite from this session is nearly impossible, but I do love the photo of everyone walking down the stairs. Sure, it's not the most traditional, and yeah maybe you can't see everyone's faces. But I love the movement and realness that it captures (while showing off that AMAZING staircase!). I also adore the image of Lily's dads dressing her. It made me picture them buttoning her wedding dress someday, and of course I got a little weepy just thinking about it!

So often the small moments can get lost among the big ones. I hope these photos help Jimmy and Tommy hold onto these precious memories as long as possible. 

Thanks for stopping by!
