Amy - Cheyenne Senior 2011 {oklahoma senior photographer}

What is up?! 2 blog posts in a week, THATS whats up!! :)

Amy came in for her senior portraits last week and I thought they deserved a blog of their own. I had a good time shooting her and had some good laughs along the way!

Amy is going to UCO to get her degree in Secondary Special Education. I think that is amazing! I believe it takes a special person to take on this roll in life and for a young woman to know its her calling is, well, pretty damn cool!

Amy has a wonderful smile and a great personality. I wish her all the luck in the future!

funny how i ended with "she has a great smile" and the last photo she isn't smiling? I am an idiot.

SO.... now that, that is said and done. I am going to give a little info about the Senior 2012 season!! Butler Photography will be giving away..... FREE iPAD(s) !!! yes! that is correct. All you have to do is get 10 referrals... 10! that isn't too bad. Once you get your 10 referrals into the studio, they book and come in for their session. YOU get a free ipad along with your senior photos loaded onto it! Is this awesome?___ yes ___ heck yes! Sorry, no option for no!

Get with me for details and be on the look out here and on the Butler Photography Facebook and Website!!!

Dear Blog.... I am sorry {oklahoma photographer}

Hey Blog, what's up? It's been a while. Your looking good as ever! I am sorry for neglecting you. I will try and be better, it's just I've been busy... it's not you, it's me..... Forgive me???

So, I noticed it has been yet again a LONG break in blog posts. Sorry, trying to keep up with all the different avenues of public relations is tough!! I recently started following Holly Baumann and she posts a lot of blogs. Most of which are interesting, to me anyway. Her latest post talked about the importance of blogging. So I am going to "try" and improve this outlet of social media! Lucky you!! bc i am so clever and humorous and awesome and amazing and entertaining, that it will allow your to be overwhelmed with greatness more often!! (thats as cocky as i could get, i hope it worked)

So, it has went from hot, to cold and now is entering BACK to hot since my last post. Things have changed a lot! I have recently gotten engaged to my high school sweetheart, Chasta. I am fixing to move my studio , hopefully for the last time, back to downtown Weatherford; in an awesome old building. I have moved my living quarters to Mustang, Ok. Where I am starting to book sessions in and around that area!! SUPER PUMPED My children have gone from 3 and 5 to 4 and 6 aaaaaand that is just about it.

Ok, now we are caught back up and going along, just like I never missed a beat. Just like you have been reading the blogs all along! ::kinda::......... NOW, lets get to what you come here for PHOTOS!

First up is, Noah. Noah had a lot of energy and was a lot of fun. I chose this image from his session because his eyes are just piercing!

Now, I couldn't possibly go through and load images of every session I have shot since August! That would be ridiculous and well, time consuming beyond measure!! So, these are just a couple from recently...

The next little whipper snipper is, Kaiser. Kaiser is Boone and Megan Price's first baby!! Boone is an avid Thunder fan, so that instantly means he will be an awesome father. Okay, maybe not, but it does help... promise :) Kaiser is a beautiful little girl and I can not wait to photograph her as she gets older!

The lovely lady below, is Holland. Pam, her mother, brings in props for her session and it always adds such an impact to the session! I recommend anyone thinking about getting portraits made to THINK ABOUT THE SESSION and what YOU want. This makes it more personal, which in turn makes the entire session better!! This image I knew was going to be killer, once I fired the shutter!!

Next up.... Ava Tourian. Now this 1 year old has more hair than any child I have EVER shot at 1 year! BUT it isn't the hair that catches everyones attention... or shouldn't be! Look at how pretty she is! Ava, is the daughter of Rouben and Alex Tourian. I was super excited to shoot her the first time and was so glad they brought her in for her 1 year photos. Hope to see her grow up in front of the lens through the years!

Wow, I have been blogging for 20 minutes! not so bad.

Ok, another Ava.... her mom has signed up for photos every month for her first year! awesome idea. This image is really cool and would look amazing in her room, gallery wrap at 24x55!! She is super cute and we are going to do something fantastic with her photos and the end of the year!

Last, but not least....... Miss Kate! She is a precious little girl! Her sister Madi and brother Jaxon have been coming in for quite some time! They are so fun to shoot!! It took Madi a while to warm up to the photoshoot experience... but Jaxon has been hamming it up since day 1! I think Kate just may end up being most photogenic of the 3. Just a hunch.

Whew!!! Blog is done! NOW, all you need to do is become a follower of my blog, or a follower of me on Twitter or become a fan of the Butler Photography facebook page! I mean, seriously, there is no way you shouldn't or couldn't know what is going on with Butler Photography!

Oh!!! one last thing... I have actually got the website looking pretty good! with prices, ideas, contact information and galleries! so check it out! also on your mobile device!!
