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

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression or winter blues, is a mood disorder in which people who have normal mental health throughout most (most being the operative word here ;) of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter.

Sound familiar?

I can't really complain, it was 75 a few weeks ago and I'm from OMAHA, which is bitter cold and dark all of the dang time but the OKC just got a pretty good ice storm and we were told not to leave the house, so the boys and I hunkered down and did a whole lot of nothing. School was canceled, my car was iced over.... it was dark and dreary. Coincidentally, during the enclosure a moderate flu bug was also being freely distributed. So just when you thought you'd enjoy a nice glass of wine by the fire, you were interrupted by a not so pleasant stomach bug, prohibiting any fun. WINTER. WE WILL PREVAIL, YES WE CAN....

I'm always grateful for the clients that book shoots in January and February, i mean, c'mon, the ground is brown, my skin is seriously translucent and one may lose a finger or two from frost bites on some days, but hey, no better time for a session ;) Here are a few of the brave ones...And really, being inside in a nicely heated space makes for easy sessions! And photoshop will take care of the tan..

As for these guys, SIX kids, can you imagine? MAYBE in the summer... And as if it's not amazing enough that these kids were so amazingly behaved, mom home-schools them. I'll have what she's having!
