One thing that has been so exciting to me is to submit my beautiful sessions to be published online and in magazines. It’s thrilling. But I have to say the wait just kills me!! They want fresh content that is exclusive, which means no sharing before being published. I am happy to finally share these darling images from a session that I did with my adoption series. My husband joined...

Earlier in 2015, I was selected to be part of an amazing project for adoption.com. I had so many people nominate stories about adoption on my facebook page, and I could only choose one! After talking with my husband, I decided I wanted to share more stories than just one. I’ve now been blessed to meet a number of families now whose lives have been blessed with adoption, and I...

This sweet boy has been in front of my camera since he was just a few days old. A memorable halloween newborn session… we wound him like a mummy for one shot, and put his tiny body in a huge collection of candy corns. It was pretty epic. Oh!! And a “hot” air balloon too!! I should really go find those images to blog soon! Nash saw me throughout his...

Family Pictures in Norman, OK || Ringus Family

Photographing happy people since 2006

There are some people who are so neat that you just want to be near them. Sue is one of those mommies. I met her first when my sons were going to the same Mother’s Day Out that her kids were, and she was pulling up to the doors with energetic smile and full of energy pushing a stroller in front of her. She lived fairly nearby and chose to walk...

Family Pictures Norman, Oklahoma :: Thompson Family

Family photos in NJ

One of the first things this momma from up in Edmond, Oklahoma said to me over email was that her family wasn’t good at candid photos. Hmmmm… I wondered if I would be the right photographer for them since I like to mix some posed and some candid. But her last family portrait was lovely, and I knew I wouldn’t mind hanging out with a group of obedient kids. So...

Newborn Portraits: With a fall twist

Photographing happy people since 2006

Are you ready for some adorable newborn images? How about with a fall theme? This momma is in LOVE with everything fall, so I bought things to make some beautiful creations for her. This little man has a very special name, Maks. At the newborn session mom explained it was a combination of their initials and September, since he was due in September. But who would have known he’d come 3...

Mothers.

Photographing happy people since 2006

Who are the beautiful mothers in your life? Who quietly plugs along, bringing joy and peace to others without calling any attention to herself? A few months ago I was chosen to be part of a Beautiful Mothers project. I received my copy shortly before my babe was born, and I am in love– so many powerful examples of wonderful women. I wish I knew them all personally. But I...

Love my Cloward Clan: Missouri

FBCloward2015-008

    I first met Benita at my first local photographer’s networking dinner years ago, though we had mutual friends and my husband had met her before. When Im not teaching or presenting I tend to be a wallflower in large groups, and this was no exception. Not only did I admire her comfortable manner talking with everyone, I love how she didn’t seem intimidated by anyone. When I helped her...
