it has been a month, i am trying to do better! (oklahoma childrens photographer)

That was Trendyn. He comes in every year and every year Tara, his mother, wants something different. I tell her to pick something he is into and enjoys and lets go from there. This year was a success yet again and we got some cool stuff! Obviously he is into motocross, so we shot him riding, jumping and just looking cool! lol great session and great images!! can't ask for much more than that!!

This is Sam Miller. Another of Lacy and Clay's offspring. His sister is below here! I could of shot him for hours and hours! I loved his entire session and had a fun time shooting him. His mom brought just enough props to make the session personal, yet not so many that it looks over crowded! I am lucky to be able to photograph the Miller kids, she comes in from over an hour away! Thanks Lacy!!

Rily Miller has been coming to me since she was 6 weeks old!! She came in her first year every 3 months as a part of our "Lil' Steps Collection" It is so much fun to shoot her. She attended an art school this summer so I told her mom of this idea and we just shot some journalistic images of her painting and it was awesome!!!

What you have seen above is Miss Brooke. She brought in her daddy's old, nasty, smelly, dirty, etc etc hat! Do not worry we scrubbed her down afterwards and made sure she did not contract any diseases from it!! She is gorgeous and has an awesome family. I am excited to shoot her throughout this next year and years to come!!

This young man is Brax. He is good looking kid! We had a good time during our shoot. I love the high contrast 2nd image and am glad his parents just let me shoot whatever I wanted!

There again is another blog post here at BLOG BLOGSTOFFERSON. taking far too long to post up a blog!! weird thing is i enjoy them so much! Thanks for stopping by and follow me on Twitter and the Butler Photography Facebook page!!!

auf wiedersehen!!

FREE SESSION week recap!! (oklahoma photographer)

Every once in a while I put out a FREE SESSION week on the Butler Photography Facebook page and the NEW TWITTER Page as well!! This is your chance to come in and get portraits taken of your little whipper snappers for FREE!! That way if you do not like them, your not out a dime, but if, well WHEN you do, you can have a little extra cash to buy your portraits!

We start this blog off with Ryan. Ryan has been coming to see me for as long as I can remember! We always have a good time shooting! Last year before his session he broke his arm and I was the first to get to sign his cast! This year he fell down and got a scrape on his elbow. He told me, "I wish i could get a bigger scratch so I could have a scar." HAHAHA!!

Now we have Tucker. When Tucker first started coming in, I believe his one year or 18mo portraits, he hated me. He hated pictures and he didn't want anything but Smarties candy!! Tucker is now 6 years old and HE ASKED his mom and dad "can we go see Anthony and get my pictures taken?" WOW, every session has got better over the last 5 or so years, but I am pretty sure no 6 year old boys have ever asked to get there pictures made! Tucker has a girlfriend and we talked about her most the session. That and Toy Story 3. I love when the kids come in often enough for us to build a relationship!

This little guy is Isaac. I photograph his sister Ella and was lucky enough to get to capture his 3 month photos for his family as well!! Ella is an awesome sister and was a lot of help during the session! Its hard to beat a good black and white image of a naked baby! and look at those eyes!!

Now we have Reece. Another child that I have been lucky enough to photograph their older sibling. Reece was very cooperative and I believe enjoyed being the center of attention. Eventhough, NOT as much as she enjoyed trying to eat the pearl necklace we were trying to get her to shoot with!! Shooting the feet of a child has become common, but I really like the shot of her foot in the air. The composition is great and its just an image that really caught my eye in her proof set!

This young man is Lachlan. Lachlan comes in every year and every year we get awesome images! I posted on my Facebook page that I believe it is impossible to not get good images with him! Next time I just may try, to see if it is possible!! Just kidding Mikki. Lachlan is lots of fun and has a great attitude! He is so laid back and just is a joy to be around! Thanks Mikki for bringing him in! Also, Mikki is the best at using her referral cards! She, as well as her husband Brady, show off their images and send me the newbies! Which in turn, racks up the FREE MONEY for Mikki and Brady to spend on photos! This photo of him at the volleyball court is so awesome! Once I fired the shutter and saw this image on the camera, I knew it would be one of my faves!!

And finally, we have the Coker family. Desiree is expecting a new addition to the family at any moment!! I had a great time shooting them and playing with Beckham. He believes he is Wolverine and is afraid of the police. So we have a lot in common!! I can always tell during a family session within about 5 min how the session will turn out. I knew these would be fantastic!! Everyone was having a good time!! I love capturing moments in a session that are not posed and made to happen. They were playing and just being a family, I took the photos, did little instructing and I believe they turned out wonderful!! I can't wait to meet the new guy! Thanks for coming in!

So if you are a follower of the blog or a first time visitor thanks for stopping by!! I am trying to keep up with this a little better!! I will not promise anything, but WILL TRY to have a blog a week! Click these links become a liker of Butler Photography on Facebook and a follower of @photobybutler on Twitter!! DO IT! DO IT NOW!! Don't make me come tickle you..... Ok I went into child photographer mode there... MY BAD!

until next time.... "may the force be with you"

Its been a month, I am a lousy Blogger!! (western oklahoma childrens photographer)

Wow. March 10 was my last post. There has been so many things happen since then!! So I do have some excuses for the reason there has been no blog postings. BUT at the same time, I owe it to you to see the sheer awesomeness, and yes that is a word (i think), that has been going down here at Butler Photography!!
I have moved studios from the Main St. location to 106 E. College. Still here in Weatherford. I am hoping to have a grand-opening of the new studio June 1 which will be my 6th year open! Ok, enough of the tooting my own horn and talking; you came here for photos, so here are some shots that for one reason or another have stood out to me!

thanks for stopping by the blog! i am still working on the website and will have it updated soon (hopefully) DO NOT FORGET TO BECOME A FAN OF THE BUTLER PHOTOGRAPHY FACEBOOK PAGE. ITS WHAT ALL THE COOL KIDS ARE DOING. AND ITS LEGAL!!

"Thiiiis is how we doooooo iiiit" -montell jordan

How did you like the title of this blog?! It was the most appropriate way of explaining exactly HOW WE DO IT. "thiiis is how we dooo iiiit" haha

WOW, what a week! I had some great sessions!! Engagement, Families, Children and a Couple. I had a great time photographing them all!
In order of the photos: Aubrey came in and used her referral card from her sister in law and received a free session! This is one good looking couple! and very easy to photograph! Then we had the Henley kids, Jersey and Jaygen. I have photographed them I believe their entire life, and these images turned out great! The kids were so willing to participate and mom and dad just let me do whatever I wanted! Which is awesome! Jerseys eyes and smile will destroy some boys hearts one day and Jaygen is as sweet as he is ornery! I could of posted 15 images from this session, but did well only allowing 4! Then we have the soon to be Terry family, Doug and Lynnette. I will be photographing there wedding in September and looking forward to it! I love when shooting an engagement and you can tell that the two people really love each other! They had fun laughing and playing with one another and you could feel that they are truly in love!

thanks for stopping by the blog and remember to become a fan on the Butler Photography facebook page!!

until next time!
