2015 | A year to remember...

2015 was such a great year for CLP. It started out a bit slow because our family grew through the blessing of adoption. We welcomed our then 2.5 year old son home from South Korea in January of 2015. 2015 was huge year of growth for me personally and professionally. It was a struggle learning the balance between being a mom while running my business...well who am I kidding, I'm still learning. It meant a lot of late nights editing, returning emails, etc. I will be changing a few things for 2016 and all will be to provide the best services possible for my amazing clients. I have many goals for this year that I am just so excited to work towards. One of those being continued education. I love learning and look forward to attending a few workshop/mentoring sessions this year.

Thanks so much for supporting me this past year. Clients, family, friends, and fans...you all have been a blessing to me and this precious business I have the privilege of running. Every single like, comment, encouraging email, text, etc. truly means so much to me! To every family I have had the privilege of capturing an important milestone in 2015, Thank You! I am blessed to have been a tiny part of your lives. Wishing you all a happy 2016!

I leave you with the precious newborns that I was in entrusted to photograph in 2015. (Please push the HD button when viewing!)

Shepard | My Little Valentine!

This is a our precious son, Shepard! I have been waiting years to have his sweet face in front of my camera! I couldn't help but throw together a quick little Valentines backdrop to get a few photos of him for the holiday. He sure has captured our hearts! I LOVE being his mommy!Shepard2015_0027-blogpsdShepard2015_0030-blogShepard2015_0034-blogShepard2015_0037-blogShepard2015_0039-blogShepard2015_0043-blogShepard2015_9499-1blogShepard2015_9506-1blogShepard2015_9513-1blog

Lawrence Family Vacation | Destin, Florida | Personal

In June we headed to Florida for a trip with my in-laws. We had a nice relaxing vacation with plenty of time spent at the beach and by the pool. It was wonderful. One evening we gathered our khaki and white and headed to the beach for some family pictures. With a tripod in hand we set up shop and snapped a few. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Addilyn 1 year old | Tulsa Children's Photographer

As I said in an earlier post my precious niece turned 1 recently! Below are her 1 year portraits...she is every bit little girl and nothing could make her auntie happier! Enjoy!

She loves books!

Addilyn's 1st Birthday! {Personal}

My precious niece turned 1 on July 30th!  What a wonderful year it has been! She is such a blessing and makes me so proud to just be her aunt! Love her so much!!! We had so much fun decorating. I always say if I wasn't a teacher/photographer I would want to be a party planner (or a florist). I can only imagine what I would be capable of with no budget (I think about that in all aspects of my life ;)
