Get your own photo shoot of course!!

We had such a fun time during this mini session, changing poses, expressions and backdrops! I hope she's as thrilled with the experience as I am!

The Boys Mini Session | Altus Childrens Photographer

These sweet brothers stopped by my studio just before heading out of town. They are moving to sunny California!! I'm so glad that we were able to get some fantastic, funny and light-hearted shots before their long journey.


Best of luck {P} family! You will be missed!

Year As A Military Spouse: Week 13

Week 13:


Woah, it feels like I just did this yesterday....oh wait it almost was ;) Atleast I was on my game and got this posted on the correct day! Woot!

It was another busy and fun filled week here in SW Oklahoma! Big C was allowed to use my point and shoot all by herself one day while we were playing in the backyard. She took 94 pictures!!!!! The large pic is one she took of me (ahem....with no editing) and she also took the one of her brother's feet on the bottom row. She really enjoyed herself and only 1/3 of the pics had her fingers in the way ;) The other top 2 pics were from my children's Easter party at school. The 2 horizontal pics along the side are from my photography workshop held on Saturday!!!!! It was a HUGE success! I'll try and do a separate post about the workshop, but we all had a great time!!!! Last but not least my hubby got a new job last week. No, we aren't moving from OK but he is in a new office so as is customary in the AF he got a signed lithograph from his old squadron and a nice going-away lunch!

I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Easter week! See you again soon!

Patriotic Mini Session | Altus Childrens Photographer

The {R} Family was my first of the Spring Mini Sessions. Beth told me that she fell in love instantly with the flag backdrop so that's what we used!!!
The kids were dressed perfectly in their red, white and blue. =)

Year As A Military Spouse: Week 12

Week 12-

Ugh, the first time I haven't been on time. We had a very nice Spring Break vacation to the Dallas area! We enjoyed going to the zoo and seeing all the animals! We were all exhausted from a short stay at Great Wolf Lodge! (If you haven't been to a GWL, you should check it out!)

I hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break as well!!!

Year As A Military Spouse: Week 11

WEEK 11:


We has a very busy week! Obviously, our Irish family celebrated St. Patrick's Day! Love my kids green outfits and accessories =) In the bottom right is our St Pattys Day tradition of making rainbow cupcakes.
Back up at the top, Big C's new glove! We signed her up for Tball!
Next to that is our very green grass. It's one of those strange things I'd never seen until moving here to Oklahoma..... a green/blue weed killer & fertilizer that is sprayed on your grass every Spring. Interesting huh?
It's definitely March Madness around here! I'm originally from Michigan and a HUGE Michigan State University Spartans fan! And I'm ringing my kids up right.... of course ;) MSU is doing really well and currently in the Sweet 16! Go Green!
On Sunday it was our dogs 9th birthday! This was the most recent 'good' picture of our male dog, Dakota.
Last but not least is a picture of my first attempt of making salsa. Um....... I think I'll be trying it again, after slightly altering the recipe ;)

Well, it's Spring Break around here so we are off on vacation this week! Hope you're all having a great day! See you when we get back!

Year As A Military Spouse: Week 10

Week 10:


Mini Sessions have arrived! I did my first set of mini sessions this weekend. Those cute kids at the top did a wonderful job! When the flag backdrop was up I couldn't help but snap a pic of my little man. But he's certainly not looking so little in that pic! How can he be only 2 1/2???
We had a few nice days of sun and warm weather so I took my kids in the backyard and took some pics of our dogs while playing around with some settings on my camera. How many of you use back-button focus??? I've heard such great things about it that I had to give it a shot. While it does take some getting used to, I think I'm going to LOVE it!
After those nice sunny days, we had a cold front come through and bring rain. Lots of rain....it flooded our back yard =(
By Saturday we had dried up a little bit and I was able to go pick-up my Bountiful Basket! I LOVE having this available in our small town. I had no idea how much I was going to miss fresh fruits and vegetables when we moved from Florida. I know Bountiful Baskets aren't available everywhere, but I'd suggest you check it out to see if there is a pick-up near you!

Have a wonderful week everyone! 1 more week until Spring Break!!!
