Welcome 2016

Check out our year in review of 2015.

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2016…Good-bye to 2015. With photos, there really isn’t a “good-bye.” Photos help you remember and share all those FUN times as many times as you wish to relive the moment (or share it with as many friends and family members as possible).

Let me share with you the best memories from Misha’s Photography & Restoration of 2015. This includes events, portraits, etc. I want to say Thank You to all who purchased event photos, to all those wonderful people who had portraits done, and to those who revisit us every year for MORE photographic adventures.

Best of 2015-MPR-RHFD

Rolling Hills Fire Department (RHFD) is a wonderful group of men and women who devote A LOT of time to their community. It is a great opportunity to help them by photographing some of their community events since 2012. Thank You RHFD for all that YOU DO!  🙂

Best of 2015-MPR-BA Orchestra-logo

Here is a look at some of the Orchestra concerts for Broken Arrow High School. This includes Freshman Academy. I try to shoot at least one photo of every teen on stage. The display here is just the panoramic view of the entire stage area for each orchestra category.

Best of 2015-MPR-OKRF Characters-NOTcast-LOGO

This is a display of some of the visitors at Oklahoma Renaissance Festival from May of 2015. These are NOT the Castle’s “best of” choices. These are the best choices within Misha’s Photograph & Restoration. Visiting the Castle of Muskogee each season has been very enjoyable. I adore people and photography. This community event is a great time to have fun with a camera and capture a variety of adventures.

Best of 2015-MPR-OKRF Pirates

Best of Pirates. This display is mostly Acts that you will see at the Castle. Pictured above are members of “the Jolly Rogers” and members of “the Musical Blades” with a couple of extras peeking in for a visit. For more information on these pirate groups, check them out on Facebook: The Jolly Rogers and Musical Blades.

Best of 2015-MPR-OKRF Comedy

Angus is an all time favorite. OKRF would not be OKRF without this wonderful Scotsman stopping visitors and passers by through Angus Land. The Brothers Dimm has always been a favored stop on Mother’s Day and what would fair be without a Tribal Circus and the Jester Rejects? These are by no means the only comedies available at OKRF. I did not make as many shows as planned so please, check it out this coming May in 2016 and Maybe I’ll see you there (or here in next year’s “best of” post).

Best of 2015-MPR-OKRF

Here’s is one more OKRF display…wonderful things to see at the Castle: The Mermaid Grotto, the Memorial Day Parade (a tribute to Veterans); The Joust; Dancing; and much, much more!

 

 

Weddings are always a favorite. People starting out on a brand new life-long adventure. Those are Memories we all want to keep and re-share over and over and over throughout time.Best of 2015-MPR-WED

Weddings are wonderful whether they are great day-long or week long events OR just a couple of hours with just a few people. Not one wedding should be without photos to remember and look back on throughout your life together. It’s an adventure like no other!

Best of 2015-MPR-Portraits

Portraits are FUN too! The options here are limitless. You can go traditional studio style; on location; life style; dress up; cosplay; You Name IT!

Portraits are meant to share the personality of those in it. It tells a story of who you are. Who are You? What would you like to share with the world (or your world? your family?)….The possibilities are endless. Let’s make 2016 absolutely Unforgettable! Contact us! 405-730-9188

SJS Hospitality

On September 8th,2013–I had the pleasure of once again shooting the company picnic for SJS Hospitality. They are a local company involved in five local hotels in the Tulsa/Broken Arrow area. I have had the pleasure of shooting the event for the past three years. I enjoy it every year. I even look forward to it. This year’s theme was “the West”….Thanks again ya’ll for having me to shoot up the place again! 😉

This post is “dedicated” to SJS Hospitality…a “Thank You” for inviting me year after year to be a part of something so fun and wonderful!

May Day! May Days!

May is an AWESOME month!

A lot happens in May around the Tulsa and Broken Arrow areas.

May's schedule for the Tulsa area found here!
Tulsa News!

May 1st is May Day (or Beltane, if you travel the wiccan or celtic circles of life). This is the time to celebrate spring time, good crops, births and new life in general….though with this year’s record history of snowfall in Oklahoma in MAY(!)…spring might be hard to see at the moment.

May 4th, FREE comic book day! Don’t forget to visit your local comic book store such as Starbase 21, Vintage Stock for great deals! “May the 4th be with you”…..National Star Wars day! 😉

Star Wars, a New Hope
MAY the Force be With You!

May 5th, Cinco de Mayo….I know a lot of us will be celebrating Saturday night instead of Sunday due to work and church but celebrations are good and they usually include a healthy dose of FUN!

OKRF at the Castle of Muskogee

May 4th & 5th also opens up the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival at the Castle of Muskogee for the 2013 season! YES! I knew that’s what you were waiting to hear, right? 😉 This year the fair (OKRF) runs through June 1 & 2….for a 5 week run! Each weekend is a different themed celebration at the Castle.

May 4th & 5th is romance weekend. May 10th is student day. May 11th & 12th celebrates Mother’s Day.  May 18th & 19th is Pirate weekend! arrgh! May 25th, 26th and 27th is Celtic weekend with a salute to our troops on Memorial Day (the 27th).  June 1st & 2nd is Gypsy Bazaar!

We absolutely cannot forget Mother’s Day which falls on May 12th this year. Mothers deserve to be celebrated. Don’t forget to let your Mom know how important she is in your life this year.

Graduations from High School and Colleges all over the state also take place in mid-May….so

Up…Up…and away….as high as the moon and stars….

congratulate your friends and family members for their accomplishments and enjoy the summer with them too!

Memorial Day!! (May 27th, 2013) That day that begins the swim season for so many…Bring on SUMMER!!! and don’t forget to remember our troops, the men and women who have served over the years so we can enjoy our rights and freedoms in our own way and in our own time.

Freedom isn’t free….all gave some, but some gave ALL. God Bless Our Troops….

Thank a Veteran…Hug a Soldier…or just say a Prayer for those who are currently serving & away from families of their own.

May is definitely a wonderful and busy month!

Leave a comment and let us know what you do with it!

Williams Rt 66 Marathon – Tulsa, OK

RUN! ….. RUN!…. and RUN! But have FUN too!

I ran my first 5K in 2011. My Husband is a runner and has participated in several runs and relays over the past 12 years. This year our children have joined the family hobby and ran their first 5K’s this past July 4th.

I love marathons! If you go to the 5K fun run and walk event, you get to see alot of energy and support and FUN! People really do enjoy these. I have ran the last two for Williams Rt 66 Marathon so I haven’t any photos to share. I can say a runner’s competition really is themselves! I accomplished the goal of beating last year’s time….Now being a runner just doesn’t really fit a description I would use for myself. But I do finally have two 5K’s under my belt and next year’s time is gonna take a little more effort I think…but topping yourself is a good challenge.

Williams Rt 66 Marathon 2012
Running is Competing with Yourself! Have FUN!

I did manage to make it out to the marathon/half marathon event this year too … as a photographer. I love the energy and the enthusiasm you find at a marathon. Waiting for someone to cross a finish line takes patience.  Let me tell you, trying to meet them along the course is even more complicated!

It is worth it to see familiar faces along the way and I can see why most races map out the course for their runners! the photo opportunities are awesome too! People run in costumes, colors, and all manner of styles!

Check out the Rt66 Gallery from Sunday, November 18th, 2012.

Run…stay fit…have FUN!
