Tulsa’s Newborn Photographer – Brenda Horan

If you are expecting – now is the time to book your newborn session.  I typically take newborns on Tuesday and Thusday mornings at 10am when the light is beautiful in my studio and perfect for natural light images.  Once your baby arrives, the session date can be adjusted to make sure we photograph your baby between 7 and 14 days old.  Even up to 21 days old is okay.   Hiring an experienced photographer is very important.  It’s like a wedding – you only get one opportunity to capture these sweet, curled up images so do not  take the chance that it won’t be done safely and in a manner that produces quality images.   Typically you will be able to view your images in 48 hours and order the very next week!

I work closely with women who knit and sew to provide the cutest, softest newborn props, hats and headbands that will embelish your images.  Every attention to detail is made to ensure you get the best possible images of your baby.

Here are a few examples of recent images.

Don’t you just love the crinkles in his little arms and back… this baby was ever so tiny and what a good sleeper.

It’s all about LOVE – Valentines Mini Review

I’ve finally had time to sit down, compile my very favorite shots of each child from my Valentine Mini Session last month.  WOW so many a adorable kids!

Before we start – I want to  thank Stephanie Eckman of The Party Darling

https://www.facebook.com/ThePartyDarling – she created all of these darling little details for me.   And of course, I should thank my husband Kip, for building my little kissing booth.

So, we’ll start with Emmett – he’s been  coming to me for a long time – he’s a very good listener, and such a happy kid.  Last year we did photos at his Papa’s farm on  tractors.  I absolutely love being his photographer and getting to see him a few times a year.  His 3rd birthday is coming up and we will be taking his 3 year photos someplace really fun.

Next up are two darling, photogenic sisters.  Abby has been coming to see me since she was a newborn.  She used to be really, really shy, but the past few years she has turned into a super model. Her hair is to die for… and so are her eyes!


BP7A5727

 

Her little sister Caroline is equally as pretty and photogenic – I’ve been her photographer since she was a newborn too.   Caroline’s photo shows the scope of the little Valentine Set.  Every attention to detail is made when we create these fun, colorful sets for kids.  The backdrop is by LemondropStop ( www.Lemondropstop.com ).  And you can see all the fun little details The Party Darling brought to make this so cute.

BP7A5768

This is the first year I’ve taken photos of this little girl, Addie.  She had such a fun time, her parents signed her up for the Easter Mini Sessions coming in March.  (SOLD OUT).  I just loved her laugh and her dress!!!

Up next is our littlest Valentine, Marin who is 8 months old.   Even though her daddy is a dentist, I am SURE she will love candy.

BP7A5828

Her brother, Declan, was more interested in the candy than my camera.  He’s a little shy, but I’m sure he will turn out just like his older two sisters, who are naturals in front of my camera now.

BP7A5854

So, this is Davis – she’s another happy-go-lucky kid who I’ve been photographing since she was a newborn.  She just became a big sister, so next year you will see her with her new baby brother.  Davis is one of the most polite  little girls I have ever met and she has the best personality.  I loved how her eyes lit up when she saw the set – you could tell she was excited.

BP7A5889

 

 

Up next are three of the four Gallagher kids – all super polite kids, they love to smile, and these are genuinely happy kids.  BP7A5930

 

Future heart breaker….

This outfit was also PERFECT for this set….      BP7A5960

 

This was Addie’s first time in my studio, but I know she will be back. Her grandma brought her in, and you know how Grandma’s love to spoil their grandkids!!!

BP7A6007

 

So here’s  two of the Sutterfield kids – both I have been photographing since birth.  Little Zayley, well she’s just going to be a handful I can tell.  She has a great personality, even at age one!BP7A6050

Her brother, Landon, (I call him Lan Man) is super special to me.  When I moved out of my studio, I gave him my fire truck, because his daddy is a fire fighter and he always loved  sitting in it when he came to my studio.  Landon says the sweetest things to me too.  He will make a good husband one day.BP7A6072

 

Next up, The Cox children – here are the first three and there’s a new baby on the way (YEAH!).  Coco is the oldest.  She used to be my neighbor and she would walk down the street with her dad and come knock on my door and ask me about my day.  She’s now 6 and very sweet.

 

BP7A6110

 

Hendrix is her little brother – he is very sweet too, I remember how chubby he was as a baby.  He’s starting to loose that little boy look and it actually makes me sad to see!  BP7A6129

The third child is Capri – who is a good listener at  such a young age.  She actually would sit still so I could capture photos of her  doing what I asked her to do.

BP7A6154

 

Karter has been in my studio since she was about two.  I have a special place in my heart for Karter – she always hugs me when she sees me, and her parents have taught her to be polite to a fault.  She is incredibly smart and athletic.  I think she runs a mile 2x faster than I do!  Here she is holding one of the cakes from Frostens.

BP7A5653

And her outfit also works great with our set…. so cute!

Well there you have it – lots of cute photos, a fun, colorful set, and so many cute kids!

If you would like to become one of my customers please call me.  I would love to be your photographer.

Tulsa Photographer Brenda Horan shoots for Fashion & Elegance

Last week I stepped out of my comfort zone and shot images of three beautiful Tulsa ladies from various age ranges, to showcase their beauty and elegance in formal wear.  I had a vision in my mind and partnered with Destry Davis, the fabulous Hair and Makeup Artist and owner of Glamor Artz ( http://www.glamorartz.com ) to make this  vision come true.

All three ladies arrived with no trace of makeup and a flurry of dresses for me to choose from.   Destry treated them to the ultimate glamor treatment.  Then they got to come upstairs to my studio, dress up and  stand in front of my camera.

Tina was the first to arrive… she is totally fit and  totally beautiful.  She has the most lushious hair ever.  I can’t say enough good things about Tina because you can see for yourself, the camera loves her.   Tina owns Parkhill South ( http://www.parkhillsouthtulsa.com ).

Then we have Judy,  she is the epitomy of elegance.  Yes, she’s 60+ but look at her radiate!   I absolutely LOVE her fur coat too…. it just went with the whole persona I had in my head.  Judy is an interior designer, and together with her husband, they own Wellquest ( http://wellquestmedical.com ).  If you haven’t seen me rave about Wellquest, check out their website.

Last I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca – she’s also an interior designer ( http://theguildcompany.com ) and when I met her I thought, OMG this is Gwennyth Paltrows sister or something!  You can see why for yourself!

So, I’m branching out, spreading my wings, still shooting the fun, bright colorful photos of babies and kids, but also the moodier, more traditional portraits.  I figure women buy these amazing ball gowns and never get any pictures of themselves wearing them other than an iPhone photo…. well ladies, now you can book a session with me and allow me to capture something truly beautiful of you.

I would consider it an honor to do so.

Valentine Mini-Sessions starring Karter

Introducing one of the sweetest little girls I have had the pleasure of photographing for about 5 years now.  Not only is her momma a very special friend of mine, but this little girl looks just like her!  She has unbelievable manners since she was 3, is very polite and always has a smile on her face.  I must also mention she is smart as can be, too.  Beauty and Brains…. WOW!

So, Saturday we had a Valentine Mini-Session Marathon – so many cute kids came into the studio and we had so much fun.  Today I will feature Karter’s photos, since I just finished editing her images and I cannot believe the CUTENESS!

Thank you to Stephanie Eckman owner of The Party Darling (link here to her website: http://thepartydarling.com
