Community Volunteers

Warm weather is almost here and schedules are getting busier by the minute.

I want to take a moment and say Thank You to some really important people. We all have volunteers in our community. Most Home Owners’ Associations (HOAs) are made up of volunteers. Some Fire and Rescue teams are made up of volunteers. Though our Police, Fire, and Military are not volunteers, their pay is not nearly equal to the time and efforts some give on a daily basis.

I had the privilege to give back to my community this weekend and will again next weekend. I write this not to communicate my efforts but those whom I get the opportunity to photograph in their efforts. This is my way of saying “Thank You” to those who volunteer and give more than most realize. Sometimes we all take for granted those things which are right in front of us…(myself included) and sometimes a thank you can make the hours, days, months of volunteer time worth every second. 🙂

“Thank You” to Rolling Hills Fire Department and to Air Evac Lifeteam of Claremore for all you do for our communities in and around Oklahoma and all over the nation.

For those of you reading this, if you have time, support your local volunteers and if you are around Catoosa on Saturday, April 4th, 2015–come and enjoy the Easter Egg Hunt that Rolling Hills Fire Department is hosting from 12:00 noon until 2:00pm.


Smash Cake Party!

Smash Cake Sessions are GREAT FUN for Everyone!

Young Mister Kolton had a great session on Sunday. He celebrated his first year which is normally what a smash cake session is for. Why do we call it “smash cake”?…If your a Marvel fan as both my children are, you have heard the quote “HULK SMASH!”

When you set a one year old in front of a beautiful work of art (the cake)…you never know what to expect…but the cake (artwork) usually ends up in a crumbled smashed up mess of FUN! When both of my children turned one, we gave them their own cake and had a separate cake for the guests. This has been a tradition in my family for at least three generations. Now you can enjoy this tradition on camera with delightful photos and a professional photographer to capture the memories you will have fun sharing for a lifetime.

Cake SMASH! :D
Cake SMASH! 😀

With a “Cake Smash Session” your child gets to enjoy a treat and some fun time and so do you. The celebration of having a one year old is something grand that each family member should enjoy for a lifetime…let’s book your session today!

Happy 1st Birthday Kolton!

Thank you for such an awesome, fun time! 😀
