Beauty in the Walking

20 07 2012

“But the beauty is in the walking — we are betrayed by destinations.”
Gwyn Thomas

Here’s a sneak peek of the Knox family photos.  I love this family and I loved their idea to walk around train tracks and other areas of Guthrie for this photo shoot.  The lighting was great, the places we visited were perfect and I’m very happy with the way these pictures turned out.  This family currently has two boys…but a sweet little girl is on the way.  Thank you, Knox family, for allowing me to capture this time in your life!

 

 

  





A Mother’s Arms

8 05 2011

“A mother’s arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.”  ~ Victor Hugo

Happy Mother’s Day to my sweet friend, Katie, who is very likely spending this day just staring in wonder at her two week old baby girl, Zoe.  And she should…I mean, look at this beautiful baby. 

Katie & Isaac share a love for literature & OSU and it was fun to incorporate those elements into this photo shoot.  Enjoy your sneak peek, guys – you’re a pretty amazing family & I’m blessed to know you!

Happy Mother’s Day.





Opportunity

1 01 2011

We will open the book.  Its pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.  ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

On this day, 1/1/11 – I would like to thank everyone who has allowed me a glimpse into their lives and to capture beautiful moments, both somewhat ordinary and others quite extraordinary.  So thank you for soliciting brownhouse photography this past year.  It has truly been my honor & I am thankful for the friendships made or the ones gone deeper as a result of being a part of your lives in some way. 

Here are a few pictures from a sweet family shoot that did not get put on the blog before Christmas but I would still like to share them with the blogging world, even though the family has had the images for several weeks now.   I have the pleasure of working with the mother of this family, love it when her husband stops by, took one son’s senior pictures awhile back and have prayed for their other son who has been in the armed forces.  It was a privilege to finally meet him and his beautiful wife during our shoot.  Clarke family, thank you for spending time with me one cold December day – your lives have touched mine, whether you know it or not, and I am excited for what 2011 will hold for you.  🙂 🙂





Autumn Leaves

16 11 2010

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. ~ Elizabeth Lawrence

Have you been outside this week & noticed the glorious colors of autumn?  It always leaves me in awe of our Creator and the masterpiece He paints for us this time of year.  And when you put beautiful faces in that landscape, too, you get some great family photos.

Enjoy a sneak peek at the Siegman Family photos 2010 – featuring Kayla, Jack, Braden, Kamryn, Madelyn & this year’s autumn leaves.

  

Capturing beauty in ordinary & extraordinary moments,

Where You Belong

22 08 2010

“I’ve known it from the moment that we met, no doubt in my mind where you belong” – lyrics, To Make You Feel My Love

Hollee & Price’s wedding was a fun day – full of beauty & laughter, love & joy.  Thank you for allowing me to take part in the beginning of your amazing journey together.  It’s clear that you guys belong together!  Here’s your sneak peek…more to come at a later date…

  





Truly Beautiful Family

17 08 2010

You might remember this couple’s beautiful smiles from the beginning of my photography blog…right here

In that earlier entry, little Miss Olivia was just shy of 3 months old.  Now she is almost 2.

And she’s a big sister to this little guy, Tucker, who is 2 months old…

And here they all are together…beautiful family, don’t you think?

I do.  And anyone who knows this family can attest to their amazing servant’s hearts.  I am blessed by just knowing them.  Julie & Trevor, thank you for allowing me to capture some moments with you this weekend.  I truly love your family.
