The Mother Road.

America’s Highway.

This year, Misha’s Photography and Restoration has taken the Mother Road to the studio. Have your Senior Session done on location OR In-Studio and still bring a bit of History and Retro uniqueness to YOUR Senior Session. Rt 66 travels through 8 states total and connects Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California! Tulsa and several small towns around it were a big part of the Mother Road. Today, Rt 66 is still an amazing road trip full of adventure and nostalgia. Book your senior session Today!route66ok

Rt 66 runs through Oklahoma from the northeast corner of the state at the town of Quapaw, OK to the western edge not quite to the southwestern corner at the town of Erick, OK.

Quapaw, OK is a town in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 906 at the 2010 census, a slight decline from 984 as of the 2000 census. Quapaw is part of the Joplin, Missouri metropolitan area.

Presidents and Lovers 2017

February 2017 is a wonderful month.

This is the month of presidents and lovers. Now before you go looking for a political post, or a scandalous post regarding some other topic, remember this is a photography blog.images-for-valentine-day I am talking of President’s Day, Washington’s birthday, Lincoln’s birthday and Valentine’s Day…. what were you thinking?

February brings these dates YOU might be interested in:

February 4th & 5th: Always Potterhead’s Festival which takes place in Oklahoma City’s Farmers’ Market. Tickets are a must! Visit from 9am to 7pm each day. Have fun! Muggles welcome! If you are a Potterhead…and would like a Wizard Worldly Portrait session-Contact US NOW! We would LOVE to do a shoot with YOU! (Hogwarts, House shoot-Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Griffindor, Slytherin, Steam Engine settings, Platform 9 3/4 ….) This session would be either on location or in studio in Broken Arrow–NOT Oklahoma City unless you choose OK City as your “on location” site.

February 10th: Batman Lego Movie opens in theaters all over town. So Who is up for a Gotham Nights Photo Session?? All through the month of February, book a session to shoot a “Gotham Nights” session. Batman has been a big craze for a while now. No matter which version of the Dark Knight you love, let’s have some photo session fun!!

February 12th: President Lincoln’s birthday.

February 14th: Valentine’s Day… the day to celebrate the ONE(s) YOU love! Now why did I say “ONE(s)”….. well, the word “love” has several levels to it. In some language the word is represented by different words depending on what kind of love you are referring to. You love your family (Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, sisters, brothers, cousins). You love your Husband, Wife, Girlfriend, Boyfriend. You love your friends….but not all in the same sense. Those of us here in the U.S. or the english speaking areas usually only know ONE name for that feeling and it’s “LOVE”. So when I say “ONE(s)”, I am talking about any person that may be close to you…NOT just your significant someone. This is the perfect time to get together with that significant someone or with someone dear to your heart because of who they are as a person…and create a memory that represents a celebration of your relationship. What better way to show how special they are to YOU.

February 20th: President’s Day The day set aside to celebrate our presidents.

February 22nd: George Washington’s birthday.

Not everyone celebrates the same day in the same way. However you wish to celebrate the calendar of events this month, let us help you. Book a session NOW!

 

Tea Time Traditions

Tea Time Traditions are many.

Tea has a history in America dating back to the colonies when the Boston Tea Party took place. While I would love to shoot a re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party, I am actually offering a different setting that has actually become a quaint childhood right of passage for many young ladies through time.

Curious yet? I am actually talking of Tea  Time picnics in the garden or the backyard…or where ever your heart takes you on an adventure. Imagination IS the limitOne special young lady and I had Tea Time with Teddy by the pond.  She became princess for the day with tarts and cake and teddy by the “lake.” 

Teddy Bear PicNic
Tea Time with Teddy.

Picnics are special for every young girl from the age of three to at least the age of seven…some hang on to the tradition a lot longer {like the child in all of us~Adventures are grand things no matter our age or status in life}. Throughout September and October, we would love to shoot a “Tea Time Picnic” with you or your princess (or prince)–or let’s make it a Family Picnic! There are many tea time options for every imaginative person reading this. Take a look:

  • Tea Time with Teddy (1 or more–up to 6)
  • Tea with Mommy and Me
  • Tea Time Princess with (Daddy) the King
  • Mad Hatter Tea Party (group of 2 to 8) … “Who Are You?” …{Alice, the Mad Hatter, Door Mouse, March Hare, Red Queen, White Queen, Tweedle Dee/Dum, the Cheshire Cat, a Cards-men, Absolum-the caterpillar?}… 
  • Tea Time with Your Lovely Lady (couples)
  • Tea Time with Friends (group of 2 to 8) …friends can be your group of gal pals, gals & guys, a child and their doll collection (American Dolls ~for example)
**all adventures may be shot on location or in studio…
each setting and adventure is unique to you and your party.

Let’s have a Party!

Tea Parties are amazing times full of imagination. One of the many adventures that fit one individual or one amazing group of friends. What kind of Tea Party would YOU like to have? Let’s Plan an Adventure!! Follow a white rabbit to Wonderland OR find your fellow at the water’s edge at sunset… OR find your fair Lady on the lawn sipping tea and nibbling cakes… Adventure awaits YOU! What are YOU waiting for?? Contact us TODAY to set up YOUR adventure!

Specials: the Day for Mothers

I know. Every day is special for mothers when you are a Mom. Moms deserve to be celebrated daily…but sometimes we take every day people for granted. Moms are special. Moms are the ones who are there for you from the first moment of your life up until the very last day of hers…No one can be what your mom is to you. Take the day to celebrate HER…in 2016…and include her Mom… Check it out!

Generation Portraits

are a wonderful gift for mother’s day.

What is that you ask? Well I posted a blog on that earlier but here’s a refresher: “Generation Portraits” are special portraits that include usually three or more family members from three or more generations. For example: my mother, myself and my daughter in one portrait together would be a “generation portrait” showcasing three generations of women in our family.

Generation-collage-02HartzellWomen-5gens-plain-logo-smThis is a generation portrait. What are the numbers for? The first lady in this portrait passed away some time ago. The photo of her was taken in 1973. Her daughter next to her passed away a few years later and her photo shown here was taken in 1983.  A photo of the matriarchal line to share with future generations was desired.  I put my artistic skills to work with the materials in possession. Here is that result. A generation portrait showing the women who have been key influences in someone’s life and of whom they are a direct descendant. Now…that special offer I mentioned…From Now (April 12th, 2016) through May 2nd, 2016–> Misha’s Photography & Restoration is  offering this style of generation portraits to YOU! May 2nd will be the LAST day for sessions to be done. Mother’s Day is May 8th, 2016.
IF you are interested in YOUR OWN generations portrait, please visit our contact page and make an appointment OR request a special order. Here’s how!

Generation Portraits do not have to be the female line. You can do a male generation portrait or even a mixed generation portrait. It depends on your family and your personal preferences.

Specials: Month of Love

February is the month we all stress about Valentine’s Day and what to get that special someone…or what to do if that special someone has not yet appeared.

Special Someone doesn’t have to be the Lover in your life. It can be your Mother, Father, Grandparent, Son, Daughter, or any Special Person that means the world to you and you just can’t imagine life without them there by your side.

Some People have the opinion that giving a photo of your self to someone is vain. That may be true….but having a photo session WITH that person makes it special and loving… instead of all about vanity. So…what are YOU waiting for?

 

Make Your appointment with that Special Person TODAY! Valentine’s Day may pass you by…but it’s never too late! That person in your life is always going to be special. Tell them. Contact us. Let’s get your session set up today! Mention this blog post when setting up your session and get a free 8×10 portrait from your session!

Back To School: 2015-16

Back-To-School season is here. Everyone has passed that very busy “first day” and all the photos and shopping trips. Now you can relax and look forward to open house night and fall school photos.

Senior Portraits, Holiday Family Photos, Themed Sessions all are popular in the Fall season.
Senior Portraits, Holiday Family Photos, Themed Sessions all are popular in the Fall season.

Back to school also begins the holiday season activities for fall. The weather is cooling off and everyone is getting excited to see the heatwave that hits us during Oklahoma Summers pass by to be dreamed back up during the freezing spells that winter brings. But I am getting too far ahead.

Two things to consider right now:

  1. Fall Photos: These come in two varieties.
    1. The first is that family portrait everyone sends out with (or for) the Christmas Card season. Holiday portraits take time and energy to put together for a lot of families because this season is so busy. Back to school is over and then comes PTA; then Halloween planning; thanksgiving baking and Christmas cards (or holiday cards depending on your celebration/event); and then the yuletide shopping.
    2. The second is Senior Portraits. Senior Portraits can be done at any point in the school year but it is best to book them early. If you want Fall photos, you need to keep in mind the time change and when the daylight hours start getting shorter. morning and evening light are best if you are looking for an outdoor shoot. With the Oklahoma weather, we all know that the cold season can start anytime around mid October (or can wait until mid December)…IF you want an indoor, on-location shoot then the weather won’t really make a difference with regards to photos…however travel is still a consideration. Plan ahead and book early. Be sure to include the school activities you are involved in this year. 🙂
  2. Themed Photos: Why mention themed photos? Fall means cooler weather. Cooler weather means more outdoor, on-location comfort for those costumes that require a lot of layers and/or make-up. Oklahoma summer heatwaves can cause discomfort or at the least a bit of inconvenience when your theme requires layers of fur, armor, make-up, etc. Though you don’t want to wait for the winter months to set in either unless of course you require that white winter wonderland 🙂 though we can work on that during post process or during scene set-ups too.We would love to get together with YOU this Back to school season to have some photo-FUN. Give us a shout! You can find us on Facebook, online, or you can shoot us an email or text message. Come find us and book YOUR session TODAY!

Holiday Seasons!

Happy Holidays!

I know it has been a few weeks….but it was posted that through the months of November and December of 2013 YOU could get a free shoot….and here is a reminder on HOW to do just that!

Check Facebook.com to find out where a shoot is already taking place…if it is posted…and YOU can get to THAT location….YOU can get a 30 minute free session. This is just a session…it does NOT include any photos, extra’s or additional times or locations. IT is just a shoot session. Find us on Facebook!

Photos make the perfect holiday gift also. Pick a nice frame, add that current portrait or family photo, then pick a few snapshots from the year that might be a favorite for someone special….and you have a unique gift to give someone special this holiday season. 🙂 Memories are priceless! Share one with someone close to you…what are you waiting for?? Want a new Canvas Portrait to put on your wall? Contact us…we can help with that too!
