okc fall family photos – worthen family

You know one thing I love about my friend Jenna? She knows how to get things done. This shoot day at her home was the perfect example of that. She booked me to come photograph her daughter’s baby dedication ceremony and smash cake one year old celebration, and we knocked out family pics while I was there. So smart for people with busy schedules (that’s everyone these days, right?!) to do multiple sessions on the same day when possible. :)

Anyway, here are some faves of Jenna and Trebor’s awesome fam.

one year old smash cake pics – june worthen

Yesterday, I shared photos from sweet June girl’s baby dedication. That same afternoon, June’s mama Jenna had a smash cake for June to eat in celebration of turning one. It’s always so fun to photograph babies eating their smash cakes. They have no idea what to think of all that sugar! June was so cute eating her cake. And she had a bit of help, too. :)

baby dedication photos – june worthen

Last November, my dear friend Jenna asked me to come photograph her daughter’s baby dedication and one year old birthday celebration all wrapped up into one outdoor, intimate, joyous occasion. My friend Scott was the pastor who dedicated baby June. My heart was so moved by the sweet words of faith and hope spoken over June that day. I know that her parents, Trebor and Jenna, are people who will continue to pour out love and offer godly guidance to their daughter.

It feels fitting to share these photos on the same day as our great nation inaugurates a female Vice President for the first time ever. The future is so full of possibility for the all the daughters out there! What hope lies before us.

texas family photos – britz family

Sometimes in life you just gotta roll with the punches. And you know what, sometimes that can lead to you rock and rollin’ your way into something very cool. :) Okay, that was a super cheesy opener, but it’s perfect for the session I’m sharing today. See, I had booked two hours at The Lumen Room in Forth Worth, TX; one hour for the last session I shared (the Gussis family) and one hour for this lovely family I’m sharing today (the Britz family). But Eileen messaged me on their way to their session to let me know their daughter had just gotten sick in the car. :( I was only going to be in Texas until the next morning, so we agreed to play it by ear and see how their daughter felt the next morning.

That night, my best friend and I went exploring to find a possible place for a photo shoot. When I’m in OKC, I can come up with a million great locations at the drop of a hat, but I’m not as familiar with the area north of Dallas/Ft Worth, which is where I was staying with my friend and also where the Britz family lives. But we ended up in the magical little town of Roanoke, TX. I loved it! I messaged Eileen and she said they love that area, too, so we met there first thing the next morning (once Eileen had determined her daughter wasn’t sick still), and we got these cute pics. I really enjoyed shooting there! And I’m super appreciative of my great clients who roll with the punches when needed.

texas family photos in studio – gussis family

We’re going from Iowa to Texas in my sessions, because that’s exactly what I did at the beginning of last November, with a few days in Oklahoma in between. I love that I get to travel so much for photo shoots every year. And I really love going to Texas for so many years now to do Nicole and Dane’s family photos. I photographed their wedding way back in 2008 in Napa Valley. A few years later, they moved to Texas, and I’ve been photographing them their every year since. Their kiddos are THE MOST FUN during photo shoots, as you can see from the images here. :) We also did some quick headshots of Nicole during this session. I love to grab whatever kind of photos people need during a shoot. No need to book multiple sessions if we can do it all at once.
