Thirteen Days of Halloween: FIVE

This session was a lot of fun. Children don’t often have a long attention span before they are school age and sometimes this discourages people to take up projects like this one. Pets tend to have even less of an attention span…depending on the breed and personality. ¬†This young lady is a ball of energy and “Toto” was too. We did have a LOT of fun shooting and my little model loved getting dressed up to go out and play. ūüėÄ Meet “Dorothy and Toto…her little dog too”.

High School Forever

Following my path to the Future...
Following my path to the Future…

No I don’t mean High School is forever…but the one thing that seems to be forever, is that Senior Picture that sums up your High School life. This is the one portrait that is sure to be how you, as a senior in high school, are remembered. Why do I say that?

Most Seniors purchase a yearbook, a class ring, and graduation memorabilia. The ONE YEARBOOK sure to be searched through again and again and to show up at every reunion to come is the Senior Yearbook.

Why is this important? Your senior year is the beginning of your future and the end of high school but seems to last eternity. So? Have FUN with it and be yourself! Be WHO YOU ARE….in your photos! ūüôā

So…what are you waiting for? Let’s book YOUR SESSION now!

Holiday Portraits: An Easter Celebration

I know you probably read the title of this blog and thought you were going to see a bunch of kids’ portraits for Easter, right? I hope you aren’t disappointed. I wanted to do something a little more original this year. I want to display a portrait of Easter.

Are you wondering what I mean by that? How would you paint (or create) a portrait of Easter? East conjures so many memories and so many meanings….each is different for ever individual person that reads this.

When I think of Easter, I think of the childhood memories with my familly…the new outfit my grandmother had made for me, the Easter basket with candy and toys, the church service that would be taking place that Sunday…and the dinner and egg hunt that would happen after church.

I also think of the symbolism (for me) and this may of course be different for you….we each have our own thoughts, images, and memories that make up what we believe and how we perceive things.

If I was to create a “Portrait of Easter”, I would start with a glorious sunrise filled with birdsongs on a cool but not chilled foggy morning…..though this isn’t ¬†a foggy morning…it is a golden sun:

Add the warm feeling that (for instance) Thomas Kinkaid paintings create or that walk through your favorite park path or special quiet place gives you…. “Remember Me

then add the laughter of children with happy hearts and not a care in the world for anything other than love of the people around them and the moment (which no child ever consciously thinks about)…

FireCracker 5K of 2012

add the image of a golden egg (like Jack in the Beanstalk’s treasure when you first heard the story and imagined the scene in your mind)….with Warmth and love surrounding it (instead of the giant)….

Last…but not least, add a guide, friend, someone special to share this image/feeling with…

and NOW You have:

Easter’s portrait….

 

 

It’s THE Long Holiday Weekend!

Thanksgiving!

Turkey Dinner! or Ham! …. FOOD!

Oh, and FOOTBALL!…I like the parades too. ¬†However you celebrate this particular holiday, I hope it brings you lots of¬†joy, family, and friends.

Run Turkey Run!!

I will be taking home photos of my daughter in the kitchen. I’m sure if there is a game on, it will be¬†viewed in our house as well….maybe even a game of catch out in the front yard… Memories are fun to make. I am looking forward to time with my family…and I will miss the family members that are celebrating in other places.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Celebrate ALL that YOU HAVE!!

 

Holidays…part 3

OCTOBER!!! Yes, it is finally here!

If you live in the Tulsa, OK area, then October brings the State Fair, the Haunted Castle, Oktoberfest, and many other things to do!

The Tulsa State Fair is a tradition and I can’t wait to get out and do some shooting at the fair this year. That will be new for me. I love new things and new experiences!

The Haunted Castle in Muskogee is a lot of fun too! If you have ever attended the renaissance fair there in May, then Haunted Castle is a blast! If you are looking for a costume for Halloween, Haunted Castle is a GREAT place to get some wonderful ideas! The cast is of course in costume but so are a lot of the visitors. And the costumes you will see are amazing! Something else you are very likely to see at the Castle of Muskogee’s Haunted castle is Royal Gauntlet and their Birds of Prey! Always a joy and a thrill….Eurasian Eagle Owls, Harris Hawks, and more!

Oktoberfest always brings a laugh and lots of music and fun!

Enjoy October and don’t forget to add some fun: call a photographer and spice up your fall photo session with some¬†Halloween¬†fun!
