More Snow = No School ...

So I asked for snow and apparantly we are getting it ... and more on the way I hear! Weather Bug predicts 8 to 11 inches by tomorrow. So here I am working from home while the boys are in & out playing in the snow ... YAY for winter!

Shooting the Hughs Family

When I photographed the Hughs family over the holidays .... Flora's son-in-law Michael had his video camera out and wouldn't stop shooting. At the time I thought OK ... cool but you need to put the camera down so I can see you :) it was cute! I wasn't sure what Michael was planning on doing with his footage until I got an email from him the other day. Attached he had a little clip of the session. His plan is to give it to Flora as a gift but he gave it to me tool.

Thanks Michael! And thanks to Katie our OU intern this winter for shooting with me! I thought it would be fun to post it here as well ...

corri + james :: part II

So after the church we headed downtown to The Canary where Corri + James lived before they moved to California. I did make one pit stop "no not the Cox Arboretum" but a construction site across the street. It was cold, dusty and dirty ... thanks to the gang for letting me do my thing. Oh and sorry to the Hummer driver .... he was definitely not happy with the trail of dirt that made its way back into the limo.

But what a beautiful background this made. I personally prefer this to a gazebo, a man made pond and keeping all the other photographers shooting at the cox out of my shots .... don't you think?

thanks again to Libby .... some of the shots below are taken by her as well.






























Corri's sweet sister ...
