Sand Springs Prom 2014

It's hard to believe my "little" cousins are growing up and are not so "little" anymore.  I remember being in elementary school when 3 of my cousins were born.  Up until then it was only my sister and I, so you could probably imagine all the attention and christmas gifts we got being the only 2 grandchildren as well as the only niece and nephew our aunts and uncles had.  I had no idea when the "3 amigos" were born that it would really affect me much at all other than I would have more kids to play with.

 Boy was I wrong!  As they got older and with each christmas and holiday I started to see a shift towards the attention and the gifts.  My sister and I were no longer the babies we had essentially graduated into being the  young adults of the group.  I started feeling like a sort of role model for these boys and I liked that role a lot.  I tried to make sure I was always making good choices and setting good examples just in case those little eyes were watching me from a distance.  I'll probably never know if I had any impact on them but I'd like to hope I did.  Now here we are 18 years later one of those cousins just completed his first year of college and the other 2 are graduating high school in a couple days.  It's a pretty surreal moment for me because I've got to watch them all grow up and I've enjoyed seeing the path each of them have taken in life. 

My uncle Mark asked me to take pictures of Cole and his Girlfriend Jaden for his Senior Prom.  Of course I couldn't say no to this!  so Enjoy!

P.S  I know Cole's mom Vicky Bundy would be so proud of him and the man he's grown into.

Kailynn's Bridals

When Kailynn asked me to do her bridals at First United Methodist Church in downtown Tulsa, I couldn't say no.  Not only because the church is amazingly beautiful and a piece of history in Tulsa but Kailynn is like a sister to me and it was an honor to do this.

We had to reschedule the first time we booked the church because it happened to randomly snow and ice that day so she rebooked the church 4 weeks later and the week leading up to it the weather was perfect but when that Sunday rolled aroundOklahoma decided to drop snow and ice again.  We couldn't reschedule this time so we risked our lives to get these pictures done, (it's all about the shot).  I joked that it was going to snow on her wedding day... It ended up snowing a bit the day after!  In the end, it was well worth the risk!  Enjoy!

I love being a dad!!  The idea of being a dad and having to raise a child has always been a scary thought for me.  I think mainly because I have a hard time accepting the fact that I'm not a kid myself.  I'm 30 years old but I still call myself a "kid" and my wife has to kindly remind me that I'm in fact not a kid just because I act like one...  Anyhow these first 2 weeks of being a dad has really changed my life in a way I never thought it could.
