It has been quite a year to be a family and newborn photographer in the OKC area! When 2021 started out our family was starting the migration process of moving from our home of 3+ years in NYC back to the Midwest. Since my husband and I are both originally from the midwest and this is where are our families are that was the main reason to move back when our time was finished out on the East Coast. As I look back over the year I am grateful for the leading and faithfulness of our Lord Jesus. It has been quite an adventure and involved temporary living in PA but God provided a home here in Norman, OK.
Most of the year was invested in moving, saying goodbyes and then hellos, settleing in and finding our way in a new city and state. But in the midst of this I’m so grateful I was able to do a few family photography sessions and also a few newborn photo sessions. So before I keep adding a lot more words…
here are my superlative awards for 2021!
Family Session with the Cutest Dog
this sweet family session was a chilly day in NYC but quite fun in spite of it all! (and yes you can bring your pups to sessions! Just do let me know first. :))
the next one…my last NYC family photo session
It was so hard to say good bye but glad I got to squeeze a few family photo sessions in before we left the East Coast for good.
the most adorable outdoor newborn photography session
(it was also my only outdoor newborn session. 🙂 ) but this sweet family wanted to capture the spring beauty but it turned into quite a chilly day so we made the best of it with hot tea and blankets. You can see more of this session here.
our first adventure to the Wichita Mountains – Wichita Mountains OK
One thing we have loved since moving – getting out and exploring. A trip to the Wichita Mountains was definitely a highlight of the summer along with swimming in the local lakes. I can’t wait for us to go back again this next year. (and if you’d want a session done there just contact me and let’s chat how to make it work!)
my first Christmas Tree Farm Mini Session
When you move to a new area, you have to find new places to do sessions at! Doing Christmas Tree Mini Sessions at Wells Family Christmas Tree Farm was definitely a highlight this past fall. The farm is so beautiful and it was a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
…. most beautiful personalized location for a Family Photo Session
This sweet family chose to do their pictures at the family farm passed down to them from their grandparents. The location was absolutely beautiful and I so enjoyed getting to capture this family at the place that held so many memories for them!
…. extended family session with the most people!
An extended family session is always great fun! I love people seeing the importance of capturing generational photos!
…. cutest anniversary couple (Couple Session at George Sutton Wilderness Park)
this cute couple was doing an outing for their anniversary and picked a quick mini session. I personally thought it was such a great idea to do a quick session while celebrating your anniversary! Like enjoy each other and have fun and get photos where you can truly relax!
Thank you for following along on this fun post. I am quite excited about the growth for 2022 and am looking forward to bringing out some new offers and growing my business! To my amazing clients – thank you so much for supporting me and choosing to trust me with capturing the story of your beautiful family this year!
