The Priest Family : Stillwater Oklahoma Family Photographer

When I met this family at the park for their shoot I asked their oldest daughter what her name was. “My name is Hazel Olivia!” she said with spunk. Her Dad mentioned that he was surprised she didn’t tell me her name was “princess” so then she added, “My name is Hazel Olivia Princess!” She and her little sister Elle look like little carbon copies of each other but their personalities so far are like night and day. Hazel spent most of the time running around, tackling Mommy, and busting out crazy “princess poses”. Elle on the other hand quietly ate a cracker while intently watching Daddy so that he didn’t get too far away. Such a sweet little family, and I have no doubt that it is loads of fun at their house!

The Houser Family : Stillwater Oklahoma Family Photographer

These kiddos were fired up! It was starting to spritz a bit at the beginning of our session so we worked fast. Luckily, the rain held out till we were finished with our session. I go waaaay back with these kids mom, all the way to the days of Regina Ann Dance Studio in Tulsa. Somehow we both ended up in Stillwater and have really gotten to know each other in our post-high school years and I’m so glad! Growing up, I always thought of Bethany as someone who was quiet and reserved so when her kiddos seemed more like they belonged in my super crazy family I asked her how she ended up with them. She says if I’d met her husband I’d understand. Too funny!

Thanks for letting me capture your kiddos this fall Bethany!

This is one of my tricks when photographing kids. “I’ll take one of you like that and THEN I get to choose how you pose.” Works every time.

The Kirkland Family : Stillwater Oklahoma Family Photographer

With the bribe of cheese fries from Joe’s, Matt and Carrie made the trip to Stillwater with their brood. I’m so glad they did! We had a ton of fun and did some serious laughing. And I got to hang out with some pretty awesome kiddos. Check out that littlest one. That’s Caleb. Except when I asked him what his name was he said, “Nothing!” with a big huge grin. So of course I called him Nothing during our shoot. I thought about trying to steal him but since Dad’s a police officer I decided against it. I really would’ve taken any of these kiddos, they were so fun! Hope the cheese fries and milk shakes were delicious guys…thanks for coming to see me!
