I had the pleasure of doing my first maternity shoot with these sisters who were* only two weeks apart in their pregnancy. 

* I say were because Michelle (the one in the blue) had her little baby girl the day after this shoot.

The Upps, a family shoot

Alright so a few weeks ago I did a family photo shoot with a family from our church. They have an adorable two year old boy and one on the way. 

After this shoot I have found the nice thing about having an assistant, it is really hard to try and get the little one to look at you and smile while watching your edges and thinking about exposure. I wish I had an assistant. lol

I absolutely love the above two pictures. 

In these last two the light was starting to get really bad so it was tough to get a clean image.

I had a lot of fun doing this shoot and learned a lot. Thank you Upp Family!

What do you think?

So I am change my look up a little bit, and I would really like some input. What do you think of the header? Is it to much? Does the background color work well with my blog? Do you think I should add something? Should I go back to a white background color?

I would really like to hear what you have to say.

Day 3 in Oklahoma - Western Museum - Drive Home

So on our third day in Oklahoma we went to the Western Museum. It was a lot of fun. They had a TON of western stuff, and the museum was absolutely HUGE!

I couldn't take a lot of pictures because there were a lot of places where they didn't want allow flash, and the lighting was so dim that it was impossible to take pictures with out either a flash or a tripod.

So there aren't as many pics in this post as the other 2. :( 

Western Museum

They have this big statue in the entry way, it is huge. I think it's kind of the Oklahoma City mascot. lol There's painting, rugs, coasters, and blankets of it there. 

They had this big bronze statue of "The Duke" (that would be John Wayne for those of you who don't know), and being the big John Wayne fans we are, we HAD to get a picture with him.

Ok! There is something horribly wrong with these next two pictures. 

I still don't see how I got stuck with the super small saddle..... :\ The tallest guy gets the smallest saddle..

Day 2 in Oklahoma -- The OSU campus

So day 2 of our Oklahoma adventure was going to OSU, where my older sister goes to school. It was really cool, but we went at like noon so lighting wise it wasn't the greatest. What better way to get use to a new camera, heh?

Now before we went to the campus my sister took us to her favorite little nicknack shop. It was weird to be walking through there at the end of summer and seeing the nativity scene setup. Being my bored self in shops like this I decided to take some photos of the scene.

Alright so after the nicknack shop we went to the campus. Now the coolest building on the grounds that I saw was the 5 story library. It has that old building feel to it, well actually it is old. It still has wooden widow frames, and the doors are super heavy. 

The Library

I think the one above and below are my favorite pictures of the library. What do you think?

The lighting inside the library is TERRIBLE so there wasn't a lot I could do but I did get one shot of some really old books.

So those are the library photos.  What do ya think? Which ones are your favorite? Is there anything I should of tried to do differently?

I don't know what this building is for now, but it use to be the old fire station. It was being remodeled on the inside so we couldn't go inside. :(

Then there was the fountain. Of course we got there at like 2 o'clock and the light was super bright. There were a few times that my eyes were watering from seeing the bright light through the camera. Ugh! Well a couple of days ago I kind of thought the slanted angle was cool, but now that I am looking at it again I am not so sure. It kind of looks like an accident. What do you think?

Next stop the OSU Basketball court! Man that's a lot of orange!! The steps to get up to the top a definitely some calf killers. They are super steep and small, but as a photographer I will make sacrifice for the shot. ;P

Now last but not least I will end with the OSU mascot. Pistol Pete!

So that was day 2 in Oklahoma. What do you think about my photos?
