Gray

Children and Families

On my first day of work in Oklahoma, I met a group of about six ladies. We were all within a couple years of each other, and we all had a list of 17 things we needed to be doing to get ready for the new school year.  Instead of rushing away to our classrooms, we got to know each other. One of these girls was Andrea.  We had a lot in common, including that we both went to SEC schools, had moved recently from the Southeast, and had husbands pursuing their PhD degrees.  Our classrooms ended up being across the hall from each other, and I now consider her one of my best friends.

About a year ago now, Andrea and Alex invited us to frisbee golf.  As soon as we got out of the car, they told us they were expecting!  I screamed in excitement (Sorry, everyone in the parking lot!).  Baby Gray Wilson is now here, and we got out on one of the warmer days for a few family pictures!

The grandmas came into town for the holidays, so Gray got to enjoy some time with them as well!

Haynes

Children and Families

A few weeks after documenting Haynes’ birth, I was invited into his home to snap some shots of his first weeks of life.  At just three weeks and a couple of days old, Haynes was a little skeptical of the sound of the shutter snapping on my camera.

It was so wonderful to see mom and dad bonding with Haynes and already having so many smiles and laughs.

I love the relaxed setting of newborn shoots.  If Haynes needed a break, there was plenty of time to take one.

Thank you, Karli and Chance, for letting me a part of Haynes’ first few weeks.  I have loved every baby snuggle.  And thanks to one of my favorite pups, Beatrice, for keeping an eye out for her new brother during our session.

Chandler

Children and Families

At the beginning of the school year, a teacher at our school announced that she was expecting.  And then, a couple weeks later, another teacher announced that she was expecting.  And not long after, Ashley announced she her husband, Jonathan, were expecting their first child.  Our work became abuzz with the anticipation to meet all of these little ones.

Last week, I had the honor of meeting and photographing Chandler.  I was so wonderful to catch up with my friend and see the happiness in her eyes.  Ashley and Jonathan, your little one is beautiful.  I look forward to watching her grow!

Babies sure can wiggle, but goodness those eyes.
