Southeast Oklahoma Photographer| Christa & Sumish

Meet Christa and Sumish.  They met and the gym and love spending their time outside together, being active and enjoying the weather - so it was perfect when their Engagement Session happened to fall on a gorgeous day! for-blog

Funny story: In 1998, when we were little girls, Christa and I used to play together! (see photographic proof above)  We both lived in Pennsylvania at the time; 17 years later our paths happened to cross again as we both live in Oklahoma now and I drove up to Oklahoma City for the day and we spent a few hours catching up and taking Engagement Photos!

Southeast Oklahoma Family Photographer | Allie turned two!

When Allie's mom asked my to come and photograph her birthday party, I was so excited about the opportunity to capture some beautiful moments with her friends and family and I wasn't disappointed.  She even got her very own horse! Web-BW-10

My favorite thing about these is that even though Allie probably won't remember her 2nd birthday, she'l be able to look at these photos someday and see how loved she was.

Watch this video to see more of the story of her special day:

Hugo OK Family Photographer | VanDerBijl Family

"You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them." - Desmond Tutu

While I love to capture families in authentic moments, I also understand the value of a traditionally posed Family Portrait - the one you'll hang on your wall, put on your Christmas card, and send to Grandma & Grandpa.  And I love that too.

Hugo OK Family Photographer

So whether you decide to have me capture your family at home in a Documentary-style Session, like the Hellyer Family, or in a more traditionally posed Session, I'm happy to do either.  It's your life and they are your photos, so you get to choose.

For the VanDerBijl Family's session, we started out with some more traditionally posed photos.  Then, about halfway through our session we let the kids run around and play and I captured that too - the best of both worlds!  We can most definitely capture both posed and un-posed portraits in one session!

Without further ado, enjoy some favorites from this Family Session.

Some thoughts on Session Locations

Let me tell you a little secret. Location doesn't matter nearly as much as you think it does.  Or, at least not in the way you think it does.

 

Contrary to popular belief, the location of your Photo Session doesn't have to be a beautiful park, or a giant empty field, or a spot downtown with awesome architecture.  I promise.

But don't take my word for it.  Let me prove it to you!

 

Take Keely's Session for example.  Remember her Senior Photos?  They must have been in some gorgeous location, right?  NOT!

Hugo OK Senior Photographer

 

Let's take a closer look at where we took her Senior Photos:

An overgrown, dirty old garage - in between the dumpster and the air conditioner.

The back of a shed, in front of the pile of debris.  It might look like a field of flowers, but in actuality there was only a tiny patch of yellow flowers!

The parking lot of the local pharmacy.

And the alley.

 

Nothing special. At all.

My knowledge of light and how my camera works means that I can make pretty much anywhere look pretty, so I can take your photos anywhere.

 

So if it's not about the location, then what?  

This is why I encourage my clients to choose a spot that is meaningful to them to have their Session.  How about your backyard - or your grandparents backyard?  Maybe your favorite store, the place where you like to go fishing, or outside of your school building.

Because twenty years from now, that's going to mean something to you.

 

Hugo OK Family Photographer

The Hellyer family had their session right at their house.  They're probably not going to live there forever, and in twenty years they're going to look at these photos and remember their first house.  When little Grayson is all grown up, he'll be able to show this to his kids and tell them about the house where he grew up.  That's what makes these more than just photos - these are memories, frozen in time.

10 on 10 | July 2013

I went to Wisconsin last week to spend one of my best friend's wedding week helping her get everything done and as a bridesmaid in her wedding.  It was such a blessing to have so much quality time together with her.  Their wedding was amazing, beautiful, and tons of fun!  I didn't get my big camera out a whole lot during the week, and not at all during the actual wedding day - that's what they hired a real professional for, right?!

 We started the week with the town's firework show the weekend before the fourth.  I didn't have my tripod, so fireworks shots were definitely a challenge!

 There's something about fresh fruit.  Bright red, bumpy, fuzzy raspberries!

 Steph brought her hamster, Ronnie, along for the week.  So much entertainment.

 On the Fourth of July, Holly's parents had a party for the neighborhood, their family, and the bridal party that was there!  Tons of fun, food, friends, and fireworks!

 What is it about boys and fireworks?

 The happy couple!  They're so cute! :)

 Holly's dad is quite a musician.  He wrote a beautiful song for Holly & Brandon and then he and Holly sang a duet.

More fireworks.  I love all the sparkles!

Day 27 - 32

Almost a whole week behind... yikes.  Playing catch-up today!

Stained glass at church after everyone left and we turned off the lights.  The light shining through was too much, I couldn't resist!

I swear the dishes were multiplying - just when I thought I was done, I'd turn around and find another pile that I'd missed!

Sitting on the porch with my brother and Bella stood by the door.  I could tell she wanted to come sit with us. :)

I installed more ram on my computer all by myself!  It was incredibly easy, really!

My mom needed 3D shapes for school, so I made some for her.  And they were so fun and colorful!

Time for a new sketchbook since the old one is falling apart!
