Baby Hayden ·OKC Lifestyle Newborn Photography·


Hello Dears!

I hope Mr. Hayden's yawns aren't too contagious this Monday morning! But don't let that sleepy face fool you, Hayden was quite the little milk monster. He'd have nursed all day if Karina let him! He also had the softest head of hair. That's one of those things you soak in as much as you can when you have a brand new little one. It's the good stuff.

It was so nice getting to know Karina and Craig during their newborn session. I asked what piece of advice they would give to new parents, and Karina said "Take care of your wife!" Baby Hayden was breech, and despite their best efforts to spin him, the birth day ended with a c-section. Karina said seeing her husband take charge was much needed, and quickly reminded her why she married him! Help from your partner goes so far during this difficult but oh so rewarding time.

Now, can we PLEASE talk about their precious new baby with the sweetest dog ever? My favorite photo from this session is the one with Hayden laying on Ash's paw. Ash was such a sweet and gentle dog, and was very much involved in what was happening with baby Hayden. When we headed into the toy nook, she followed suit and plopped down on the rug. I knew she was calm enough to try out what ended up being my favorite photo from the session! We laid Hayden on her paw and dad was right out of frame, but Ash didn't even bat an eye. She posed like a pro and didn't move until Hayden was in dad's arms. (I refrained from saying her special ear-perk word *Popcorn!* because I didn't want her to jump, but trust that Ash was happy as a clam the whole time, despite the long face!!)

Little Miss Amelia ·One Year Studio Portraits·


Hello Dears!

Can you believe Miss Amelia is already a year old?! It seems like we just finished up her newborn session last week. Please. Stop. Growing.

It was so good to see Tiffany and Eric again, because they're just about as sweet as can be! For their maternity and newborn session they opted to stay in home, so they wanted to try something a little different for Amelia's one year session. Since they're such fans of lifestyle sessions, we decided to head over to the studio! 

This session is particularly special to me because it was one of the first sessions I shot in the studio and I absolutely love how it turned out! Amelia looks so grown up in her short qipao, which is the beautiful purple dress she's wearing. I love when we're able to include things that mean a lot to your family and family history. It just makes the photos that much more special. So in case you were wondering, yes please do bring that 100 year old blanket that belonged to your great great grandma, or the teddy bear that Paw Paw played with as a child. You won't regret it!   

Thanks for stopping by!
