Bravyn Thompson

This is Bravyn Colte Thompson!

He's a pretty amazing little boy. He's got such a happy disposition and he's just full of love.

I'll have several more pictures of him soon - but I'm still editing. But this one seems to capture his sweet little personality!

The Green Family

This is the Green Family! I met them at Medicine Park Saturday evening for family portraits. Their little one is only two months old and although it was warm for this time of year.... it was cold! Especially for a baby!
But, like his big brothers, this little one was a trooper! Isn't he just the sweetest little thing?

Comanche County Catering Services & Concessions

Saturday night I went to the fairgrounds and took pictures of the food offered at the Comanche County Coliseum. I did concession pictures as well as catering pictures.

Their fruit and veggie trays are beautiful! Just look at the carved watermelons and cantaloupe!

The Comanche County Caterers really have a lot to offer. So, for those of you who'd rather relax and enjoy your holiday parties without messing up your kitchen... this just might be something to think about.

Davian & Naomi

I recently did pictures for this little sweetie pie!

Isn't this shot just precious!

This is her big brother, Davian!

And - she is just about to turn ONE!

So, we just had to do this!

Custom Christmas Cards

I've been making a lot of custom Christmas Cards!

I can make them in any size and use just about any color!

I love the uniqueness of these!

I'll probably continue making them and post more as it gets a bit closer to Christmas, but these are some of my favorites right now!

And - custom means Christmas no longer has to be RED and green! Orange is pretty festive, too! I really think this is one of my favorites so far!

Childhood Innocence....

I love children!

I love the fact that they live life for all it's worth. They're enthusiastic! And they know how to enjoy themselves.

I met this little guy while I was walking back to my car after Lindsay & Bryan's Christmas session and he asked me to take his picture.

Isn't he cute?

In the short time that I spent with him, I learned that he's smart, resourceful and he loves life. He's a Nana's boy! And he's precious!

His name is Shawayne!

Just look at all of this personality!

Doesn't it make you just want to celebrate being alive!

If you are - or if you know - Shawayne's Momma, please have her contact me so I can e-mail her some pictures.

Looking Forward to CHRISTmas!

I am really looking forward to Christmas this year! I know it's early, but it's going to be the best Christmas I've had in a long, long time!

Those of you who have immediate family members in the military, will completely understand!

In 2008, I spend Christmas in Okinawa, Japan! It was a wonderful, happy time! I left early on the morning of Thanksgiving and went to be with my daughter and her husband while they welcomed Little Miss Grace into the world. She was born December 10th and I was thrilled to have her. I got to enjoy her first Christmas, and it was exciting. But, I missed being with my husband and my three sons.

In 2009, I went to Japan to celebrate Grace's 1st Birthday. It was a happy and exciting time. We made a cake and went to the zoo for a party. I took lots of pictures. And then, I flew back to Oklahoma for Christmas. I was happy to be home and to be able to spend the holiday with my husband and three sons, but I missed being with Heather, Dustin and Grace!

And when I'm gone, I also miss Abby!

But, Christmas in 2010 will be different!

On March 9, 2010, Andrew got married to Brandy, so I have a new daughter in law this year AND Heather, Dustin and Grace have moved back to Oklahoma! So, I am looking forward to spending Christmas with ALL of my kids and Grace!

And Christmas in 2011 will even be BETTER!

Andrew & Brandy are expecting a little girl in February!

Heather & Dustin are expecting a little girl in March!

And by Christmas they should both be big enough to enjoy the excitement of the season!

Life is so full of blessings! Just when I begin to think that it can't get any better, I come to realize that there will be so much more to come.

Lindsay & Bryan's Christmas Pictures

Sunday evening, I did Christmas Pictures for Lindsay and Bryan! While I was editing I thought I'd play around and make a card. I actually saved it as a template, so I can change papers, pictures and embellishments and use the same layout to create multiple cards. I plan to play around and make many more templates before the Christmas season is over.

Here I liked the subtle reflection in the water!

And I really liked this shot of Lindsay. She has such a beautiful smile!

I liked this one for the color! Can you even tell that it's mid-November? It almost looks like spring. It does FEEL like November, though. It was pretty chilly out.

I liked the sunset color on the water here.

And really, I got a lot of good shots. To see more from Lindsay and Bryan's Christmas session, you can go HERE

and choose Lindsay & Bryan Christmas!

Hugh Bish Cheer

This is one of the beautiful little cheerleaders from Hugh Bish!

And here is her Memory Mate!

Aren't the cheer leaders just precious? They were really sweet little girls, too! I think every single one of them was patient and polite.

Fall is for FOOTBALL!

Fall is a busy sports season. For the most part we shoot football and since football teams require more players than other teams they tend to be larger. But, we are also doing our share of soccer and cheer leading.
We did pictures for Almor West last Friday. We've worked with their coach for years and was happy to see that he was still coaching the team, even after his own son moved on to middle school.

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you probably recognize the coach - Robert Newport. I did family portraits for him and his wife recently and they were featured on my blog.

The Newport Family

This is the Newport Family!

I've done pictures for them for years, but up until now they have always been sports photos. Robert coaches, Reed plays football, basketball and baseball and is now into wrestling. And Abby has played baseball and basketball and she's now into cheerleading.

For family photos they chose The Mattie Beal Home for the location because that is where Robert and Alicia were married.

I've really enjoyed watching these kids grow up.

Reed & Abby with Alicia!

Reed & Abby with Robert!

The whole family!

Reed and Abby!
