Hello! I'm Beth, thanks so much for visiting my blog! I'm an Oklahoma City based photographer. I use only available light, shoot on-location, and 90% of my work is with kids! I love that my JOB is to make art and make friends. My sole purpose is for my images to say, 'WOW'. Life will be different tomorrow so make sure and remember today :) Best ~B

My MERRY Christmas Shoot..

This was a special shoot for two reasons:
1. I haven't seen my niece, Vivi for many months - last time I really had a good shoot with her was at 5 days old.... So now that she is at my absolute favorite age (8 months) I was excited to capture the perfection. She is the happiest most joyful baby. And, YES, her eyes are REALLY that blue, who wouldn't want to photograph her?
2. Reason #2 the shoot was fun; I got to be the first 'guest' photographer to shoot at Kelley Ryden's new studio. Kelley was my original mentor and while our styles really couldn't be more different I still credit her for all the initial tools to get me moving (seriously the best money I've ever spent!). Kelley and her twin sister Tracy are seriously AMAZING newborn photographers, if you're not already a fan, I encourage you to jump on the bandwagon. All these (aside from the newborn pic) were taken at her new studio space. My sister prefers the simple approach (I can do simple!! ;) and for babies this age I can't disagree, GORGEOUS LIGHT and hardwood floors - what else do you need?

Kelley, Me, Tracy (and her bun in the oven..)
