Emmy is ONE : Stillwater Oklahoma Baby Photographer

It has been so much fun watching this little sweetie grow over the last year.  From a little tiny squish at her newborn session to the chunkiest little 6 month old and now a totally personable happy ONE year old!  Love this girl and her family!

Hunter : Stillwater Oklahoma Senior Photographer

You know how you see kids all the time when your own kids are small?  Like, they are at the same elementary school and often in the same classes and you’re there for all the parties and whatnot so you know exactly who they are?  That’s how it is with this kiddo.  He and my Teagan are the same age and so when I think of him I picture him as little Hunter.  This weird thing happens though and you aren’t paying attention and all of the sudden you see “little Hunter” that you haven’t actually SEEN in years and he’s now young man Hunter and it’s super weird.

Yeah, that.

The last time I took his pictures, Hunter was a little guy.  We actually did a family session and got some of mom’s favorite images of all time so we recreated a couple of those during his senior session.  It was so fun to spend some time with them again and catch up.  “Little Hunter” has grown into such a nice young man.  I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for him!

Colee Cate J : Stillwater Oklahoma Newborn Photographer

One Sunday, years ago, I went to pick up Eli from the church nursery after service. He was probably 1 1/2 at the time and Madi was close to 3. The sweetest little girl handed me my boy and said, “My name is Tarissa and if you ever need a babysitter please let me know because I love your kids!”


Tarissa started watching Madi and Eli for us and was soon just like a member of our family. She watched the kids when we were in the hospital having both Sadie and Teagan. She would watch them at her home sometimes and then as she got older and could drive (thank goodness!) she would come to our house. She even stayed over when we needed someone and she was the BEST babysitter. She would make fun crafts with the kids and always made yummy food for them. To this day, they prefer her grilled cheese over mine.  lol  I just knew that some day she was going to have her own babies and she would be the best Mommy out there.

Well, that day has arrived. And I was SO honored to take baby Colee’s newborn pictures. I even had the opportunity to document the birth and it’s not QUITE ready to share yet but lemme tell you…it was amazing. Watching new life come into the world always gets me, but when it’s someone you love so much yourself that’s in labor, it’s awfully emotional. It was truly so emotional and amazing.

Tarissa, I love you sweet girl and I’m SO thrilled for you and Dale at the arrival of this little angel. Come over again soon so I can snuggle that baby!
