Caroline | (Tulsa Newborn Photographer)

This month I had the privilege of photographing little Caroline Grace.  With Dad back at work, Grandma came up to lend a hand.  These two have slipped in to their new roles as mother and grandmother, like they were born for this.  I was so fortunate to spend the afternoon, photographing these lovely ladies as they enjoyed this special time.

To those new mothers out there, doing the late-night feedings, diaper changing, house cleaning, clothes washing, baby bathing, bouncing, rocking, swaying, singing and loving…I hope you were celebrated this Mother’s Day.  We are so very proud of you!

Annabelle’s 1st Birthday | (Tulsa Lifestyle Photographer)

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Psalm 139:14

She was the baby that doctors said would not survive, and if she did survive, she would not be healthy.  One year ago, Annabelle Faith arrived, completely healed and thriving.  This evening was incredibly special, as we celebrated her 1st birthday, thankful for this little girl and the blessing she has been to her family.  She has two older brothers, so I think her mama is enjoying this stage of pink and frills.  Saturday night, she threw a party fit for a princess…

A Shower for Baby Caroline | (Tulsa Lifestyle Photographer)

 

Then he looked beyond the thornbushes, out into the big dark night.  Nothing could be farther than the sky.

“I love you right up to the moon,” he said, and closed his eyes.

“Oh, that’s far,” said Big Nutbrown Hare.  “That is very, very far.”

Big Nutbrown Hare settled Little Nutbrown Hare into his bed of leaves.

He leaned over and kissed him good night.

Then he lay down close by and whispered with a smile, “I love you right up to the moon – and back.”

 

From “Guess How Much I Love You,” by Stan McBratney.

A Day in the Life – The Goodson Family | (Tulsa Lifestyle Photographer)

You, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch and every smile
Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time

– Steven Curtis Chapman

The Johnson Family | Tulsa Lifestyle Photographer

I wish I knew you
Way back when
Before you were part of my plans
I think that we would have been friends

There’s only time to live our lives
And you’ll be the one who’s by my side
And I can promise you then
You’ll always be my best friend

Till the end when we part
I will give you my heart
And I’ll promise to love you with all that it is
And I’ll promise to be there whenever you need me
Because you’ll always be my best friend

Written and sung by Matthew Ryan Hoopes
