Stress Sessions

Sometimes when I feel stressed, I grab my camera and go find things to capture. 

It doesn't happen too often, but for some reason today has been rough. So, I headed out to find anything that would stand still long enough. I found some cute things... including baby calves, new colts and pretty sunsets. 

Thankful to have this creative outlet that I love so much.

Chris+Cerra | Wedding

Remember that wedding I was second shooting for? Well, here it is! What a beautiful day with beautiful colors, flowers and super fun converse shoes! 

Thank you to the talented Megan for letting me come and spend the day shooting with you! I had an absolute blast and learned so much from how you run the day with your bride and groom. 

Be sure to like Leap of Faith Photography by Megan on Facebook to see more from Chris and Cerra's big day!

Weekend+Minco Rodeo

This weekend has been one of my favorite weekends of the year. It seems like so much has happened in just a couple of days and my Sunday Funday is just now starting too! I always count my weekends as officially started at 5:05 p.m. Friday.  So on Weekend Day 1 I left work and headed for Highway 47 . You see, my best friend lives somewhere off 47 and I was making the 2 hour trip to spend the night catching up, eating cake, chatting with her momma, and playing with her doggy son, Sammy.  To say we had a fun evening was an understatement. We spent all day Saturday doing nothing but chatting in our pj's (with a slight pizza break in the middle) and I loved every minute of it. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful best friend and I can't wait until the Zwilling's move back to Oklahoma! Eeeeek!

After making the two hour drive back to Minco, America, I headed to the rodeo. Because what small town summer is complete without a rodeo, right? 

I always love rodeo weekend. My family has been going since I was just a little thing, so it was fun all going again. A couple of co-workers had family riding, so I brought my camera just in case anything looked outstanding to capture. And, it did of course. I caught a few pictures for my Project 365 album and a few for my co-workers. However, some images look a little more painful than others. 

So, now I sit here on Weekend Day 3 and prepare to second shoot with one of my photography besties, Megan. I met Megan through Pursuit 31-Lawton and have loved getting to know her ever since. She asked me a few months ago if I would come and shoot with her and I immediately said yes. No matter how many weddings of my own I have done it is always great working with other photographers to see how things happen on their wedding days. I am excited to learn from Megan and get to work with her! This is my first time second shooting and I can't wait. Updates will be coming soon-- don't worry! 

See, like I said. This weekend has been FULL. Not only with activities, but with blessings too. And, it isn't over yet! 

Have a wonderful Sunday Funday, Friends!

These two girls were so fun! My big brother has been friends with Jamie for a while, but I finally got a chance to meet her and her daughter, Norah, this week! 

Norah is a girl after my own heart... because after all a girl really only needs her momma, piggy, a crown and a cute pair of boots, right? She is too precious and not to mention too smart. She knows way to much for an almost big three year old! haha 

Jamie-- Thank you for making the trip to Minco. I so enjoyed hanging out with you and Norah for the evening! She is a doll!

This session was one of my favorites ever. But, then again these girls are always a fun time! 

We started out at Amy's land with plans of using the big silo for photos... and then we found this little run down barn of a thing to the north and it turned out to be the perfect backdrop for the evening... with the most beautiful soft evening sun! 

Hanna is a dream. Such a photogenic little gal that I could probably take pictures of all day! And, Ivy is just the most precious little thing! Seeing Ivy and Hanna together is so sweet! Hanna is such a great big sister and you can tell Ivy thinks the world of her. We laughed and laughed all evening... especially when Ivy found that the silo echoed (it was adorable!)

I think Amy is going to have her hands full when these two get older! :) 
 Thanks again for having me out!

A couple weeks ago, I met up with Nicky and Terry to take some super beautiful engagement pictures. 

This couple is so fun and sweet together and I so enjoyed getting to hang out with them! Now I am even more excited for bridal pictures and their October wedding!
