Costume FUN!

What will you be this Halloween?

September’s end brings in a new season….Autumn! I love the changing of the seasons. Fall has always been one of my favorites as an adult. The colors and the change in hustle of life during this season is a bit slower and yet full of vigor and excitement. The children love it because it brings Halloween, trick-or-treating and CANDY! Can you blame them?

As a photographer, dressing up around this time of year is a GREAT time to take photos that are unique to each individual who wants a fall portrait in costume or in regular every day outfits. The backgrounds are awesome at this time of year when the leaves start changing and different things start blooming…. and that is to say nothing of the desserts that come into season during the fall! ūüôā

Call or email and get your Halloween or harvest photo session done today! And don’t forget to check out the local haunts of the season either!

Don’t forget the pumpkin patches and hayrides…..and all those FUN things we love this time of year!

Memorial Day 2013

Memorial Day Military FlagsMemorial Day means many things to many people.

The holiday was set in place to show appreciation and respect for our military service persons. This particular holiday was formerly known as Decoration Day. Its origins came after the American Civil War in order to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day became a day to honor all Americans who have died while in military service. For some it is also a time to remember loved ones whether in military service or not. For others (such as children) it is the beginning of summer.

Freedom is hard won and the price was AND is very HIGH….

Sometimes history is hard to relate to. Make it personal. discover your family roots and see how long your family has fought for your freedoms, your rights, your current way of life. America may be young but we can continue to be a great nation! Love, honor and respect are a great part of that heritage. We should pass that on to our children and their children for as long as we value our freedoms, our way of life, and those who have served.

“Some gave all…” is not just a phrase. One life is all we have no matter how we choose to spend it. There are soldiers who never came home because it wasn’t possible. There were some who came home only to be laid to rest and their families at least have closure. There are others who continue to serve over and over and over again in the danger zone of war and strife all over the world because they are needed and they believe in the right of freedom.

To all of these soldiers….

no matter their time, their place, or their branch of service….

“Thank You!”

&

“God Bless YOU”

…the beginning of shared possibilities,

…the beginnings of a lineage, a heritage continuing on into the future.

May your Journey together...Last Forever
Congratulations!

Winter Visitations

The weather in Oklahoma is definitely unpredictable….or maybe predictable in its unpredictability. I have been telling my daughter that we have until spring break to see it snow. Yesterday, like many young teens and children, my daughter got her wish….though it is not staying, the winter wonderland created by yesterday’s snow was beautiful. If you didn’t get to enjoy it, maybe this photo will help……Have a great week and stay warm! (POST YOUR PHOTOS on our Facebook page IF you want to share your winter wonderland adventures!)

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!

 

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!!

 

Rolling Hills FireFighters!

I enjoyed the time with friends too! Friends are always needed! Hope you all have a wonderful week!

 

Remembering….

September 11, 2001…

Remembering is key to not repeating…learning from the past.

September 11, 2001 is one of those days that will live and be remembered for a long time to come. It ranks with April 19th, 1995, November 22nd, 1963….to name a few.

There is unity ESPECIALLY in the face of tragedy. Those are the times that no matter who you are or how connected to the incident you are, you remember where you were, what you were doing, and how you felt at that moment in time.

Not many memories offer that stark of a contrast to life nor do those memories bring such heartfelt compassion for friends, neighbors, and even strangers.

We are a blessed nation….we fight for our freedom…we should never take it for granted for there are those who experience these tragedies and other atrocities on a more regular basis…they are still fighting.

God bless our Nation, our Soldiers, our Heroes….and those who support them!

Each plays an important role…for none could do one without the other.

God Bless America and OUR Heroes!

Tulsa from Out-of-Town

On a shoestring, at the drop of a hat

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday. Today we will continue our recap of our big summer trip that we just finished up earlier this week. After spending a great night talking and eating delicious Thai food with our friends Yadi and Rob in San Francisco we boarded a Delta flight to Tulsa early Sunday morning. Well, actually, in order to get to Tulsa we had to fly to Minneapolis. This is absolutely a round about way to arrive in Tulsa but it happened to be the most affordable on our day of departure.

Upon arriving in Minneapolis we realized that we would need to take a long walk across the airport. This allowed us to take in the vastness that is Minneapolis/St. Paul International. There were so many shops that it felt as if we had been transported into a mall. There were souvenir shops, clothing stores, and restaurants every…

Tulsa, OK Photowalk

 

Yes, I am from Oklahoma. No, we don’t live in tents and hunt buffalo.

Tulsa is a wonderful place. Though it is not the only place I have lived, it is the place I have lived the longest. Downtown is beautiful. The City is being redone here and there and is looking wonderful. I love the architecture of downtown Tulsa. Check out some shots I took while walking downtown with friends:
