I hit publish on my site a few weeks ago officially announcing my first Tulsa area family mini sessions and, boy, was it exciting! Also nerve-racking. The day arrived, I showed up with chocolate in hand for each family in one hand (because who doesn't like a good Trader Joe's dark chocolate peanut butter cup?) and camera in the other. Everything was going perfectly— sun shining, small breeze— until things began to change. Looking through my camera, I soon noticed cars parking in the background and a crowd of people moving towards us. I was confused and so were my clients! We ventured to ask what the dealio was and found out we were right in the midst of a Pokémon Go location? Hot spot? Good find? (What is it called? I'm so not on the in with that crowd :D) We had planned for everything. Weather, parking, time, location, but, of course, the one thing no one saw coming happened. As you look through the blog, you will notice we successfully avoid the crowds by a bit of patience and shuffling our feet. So! Moral of the story? You can't plan for everything, but you can get a kick out of what you didn't plan for and work around it.
But, in all seriousness, we had a great time! Working with each of your families made my day over and over again. I cannot thank you all enough for trusting me with this honor!
Meet the Tyler family. Terra is my coworker, a fellow Latin teacher, and a great mother. It was such a joy to spend some time with her family and get to know them together.
Meet the O'Connors.
Can we agree this family has the best hair? Aside from the gorgeous red hair, the best part about them was how much they laughed together. The daughter, Kathleen, is moving out of the house this year, so this was the perfect time to get some family photos before she flies the coop and sets off on her own adventures.
Meet the Harrisons.
This family has trusted me with their family photos a few times and each time I'm more excited than the last to capture their love and the children's every growing heights! And, the little guys not only looked the part of a gentlemen, but eagerly helped me carry my bags and open my car door. That about made my day.
