Sami’s Safari Senior Picture Session

Sami did our Safari session. What is a Safari Senior Picture Session? First we start in the studio, then we go outside, then go wandering through streets and alleys looking for unusual and different. The end result is a lot of fun and a lot of great senior pictures.

The outdoor part of our session featured our “tall grass” scene outside. We’ve been getting great results with this. The studio part of our session had a real nice full length picture of Sami in her dress and some very fun pictures of her wearing a “Sponge Bob” shirt against a bright background. The best part of the studio was the Nepal images. Sami moved from Nepal five years ago. She brought in a traditional Nepal outfit – and I photographed her against a plain background that I would later drop out and replace with stock photos from her native country. The results were awesome!

After the studio, we went to downtown Norman and found some great alleys and storefronts. The results are fantastic senior pictures! Thanks Sami. It was a blast!

Brittany’s Beautiful Senior Pictures

I actually have photographed Brittany and her family several times. It’s always fun working with someone you know; and Brittany and I had a blast doing her senior pictures.

She was one of the first to try out my new “rock star” set. I turned on the lights and rolled out the fog and I told her to act like she was at a rock concert. She made the rest happen.

Brittany was also one of the first to do my new “tall grass” outdoor scene. I’ve always liked the look of sitting in a field of tall grass, so I designed my own scene in my back yard.

Thanks for coming by for your senior pictures, Brittany.

Julie Lewis and Jason Gray

There is something to be said for smaller weddings. There are fewer people running around confused and bewildered. There is less pressure to meet deadlines. Everything proceeds at a more leisure pace. Such was the situation at Julie and Jason’s wedding. It was very low key. We were able to capture our images easily and without coordinators breathing down my neck. The couple had plenty of time to enjoy each other and their guests at the reception. It was a very nice time.

Sara Smiley and Aaron Southerland

If the times fall just right, I will photograph two weddings in a day. Today would be such a day. Photographing two weddings in a day is always a challenge, but driving from Oklahoma City to Ardmore would make it a greater challenge. Everything went smoothly and we got to Ardmore 30 minutes earlier than we thought we would.

Health care is their future. Aaron and Sara are both attending the Health Science Center in Oklahoma City. Sara is pursuing training to be Registered Nurse while Aaron works in Dentistry.

Melanie Carter and Daniel Lewey

Where did the tradition of decorating the couple’s get-away car ever come from? It’s like the decorators turn into animals sometimes making the car unsafe and occasionally doing damage to the car.

Somehow Daniel gained a reputation of being ruthless in his car decorating, so of course, there were several people who looking for a little pay back the day he said “I Do”. He claims this is all false accusation and that he actually restrained the last crowd he was in that was decorating a car. His mistrust of his groomsmen turned out to be reasonably well founded and their lack of access to the car thwarted some of their grander plans (like putting the car on jacks). They left him a message about their displeasure on the windshield.
