Trip & Kacey, Bringing Home Baby

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

I had the biggest pleasure slipping into Trip and Kacey’s beautiful home and capturing some truly precious moments for them of their early days with sweet baby Margaret. I watched them ohhh and ahhh over their sweet girl as we hummed to lullabies by JJ Heller and I carried them through their session. I loved their fascination with their wee girl, the way they were captivated by every yawn and sigh and grin. How many times did Kacey say, “Oh gosh, Trip. Look at her!” And I kept thinking the same thing. ‘Look at her! She is perfect!”

I sat down next to a woman at the Y this week, we were both feeding our babies and commiserating about the whole thing that is pregnancy. The exhaustion and the pain, the way we had both been stretched and torn and wounded from carrying our precious people. This beautiful and wonderfully loving momma, said what so many mommas feel during the wounding work they are doing, “In the middle, I wondered if it was worth it… and then she was here, and in my arms, and I knew I would do it again and again and again for her.”

“I loved her instantly. Of course, most parents love their children instantly. But I mention it here because I still find it a remarkable thing. Where was the love before? Where did you acquire it from? The way it is suddenly there, total and complete, as sudden as grief, but in reverse, is one of the wonders about being human.” —Matt Haig, How to Stop Time

Oklahoma City + Vincent Family Greenhouse Session

Ok, I don't always get families with older kiddos in front of my camera... but when I do, we have THE best time.

The Vincent family humored me and we head to a local greenhouse and I had them snuggle up in the sweetest light. I mean, come'on, give me all the snuggling, laughing, teasing families in this pretty light. I loved leading them around these plants and eavesdropping on their family stories as I captured their family snuggles.

Vincents, you all were precious! Thanks for trusting me with your family photos during this fun season. Watching your love on your growing kids gives me a glimpse down the road I am walking with a toddler and a preschooler... and that glimpse makes me smile.

Oklahoma City + Miller Family Session

Oh hey Spring. We love your warmth and your flowers and the way toddlers float along your first blades of fresh grass, blowing wisps off dandelions.

It was so very Spring this week when I strolled through the Myriad Gardens with Clint & Christi and their little girl ducklings. We are so very very masculine in the Sanders house, and watching these little female fairies flit around their parents whisked me away to another world with so much more pink lace and girly giggles. And I did not hate it for one second.

Clint & Christi, blessings on your sweet family, may Spring be filled to the brim for you with life and love.
