Family Lifestyle Session In Tulsa’s Pearl District | The Beers Family
It is such a joy to get to follow mamas through pregnancy, birth, postpartum and beyond... and is arguably one of the coolest aspects of my job... allowing me to make wonderful new mama friends as I seek to serve my clients and their families well. This family lifestyle session in Tulsa's Pearl District was the cap on a year long photography journey with this family from pregnancy to first birthday (a journey I hope continues for years to come!).
I met the beautiful mama in these photos through my volunteer work with Tulsa’s newborn palliative care program, The Silas Program, at Hillcrest Medical Center as Sarah is a fabulous labor and delivery nurse in the Tulsa area. Since, I’ve had the privilege of capturing the Beers family through the seasons, including their pregnancy via a maternity session, while settling in with Conner at home during a Christmas-time newborn lifestyle session, a fun 6 month summer mini session, and a lovely fall family lifestyle session with dreamy sunlight, and even dreamier baby grins, as this little guy rounds on a year old!
How does a year fly by so fast?!?
One of the things that was impressed upon me the most during this session was just the sheer, natural JOY that glowed from the eyes and playful smiles of these two parents. From playing tickle monster to wiping a snotty nose for the 1000th time, is so clear that they truly DELIGHT in their little boy. And he definitely has flourished in that love, as his chunky cheeks and goofy grins so clearly attest in the photos.
Truly, the joy here might as well have lit up Tulsa's Pearl District like Silver Dollar City as Christmas.
...except when Mom and Dad kissed. You know, because kids with their parents are all #getaroom - am I right?! (HA!) Hey, I'm all for more babies to photograph! ;)
Beers family... thank you for making me fall in love even more with what I do! It's been a joy documenting your sweet family this year! <3
Side note: After having shot a couple of sessions this year in the Pearl District... I am officially in LOVE with that location. It has the right mix of urban meets gorgeous green, and I can't wait to shoot there again soon! (If you are hoping to have a season in your family documented in 2018, be it through a family lifestyle session, some newborn snuggles, or perhaps a birth story... contact me! I'd love to connect with you!)
