Friday Phone Dump

To say that this week has left me tired would be quite the understatement!  I’ve been here there and everywhere, while editing and shooting in between!  These are all good things of course–traveling, and being a busy photographer, but I need to get better at my time management in order to sustain this level of energy usage!  Don’t we all usually need better time management though?  I suppose I’ll never truly figure that out :)

1) The trash from my delicious muffin and coffee at Hoboken in Guthrie.  This weekend we had delightfully blustery weather, so being in Hoboken with their  giant garage door open, jazz music on the record player, and a delicious cup of coffee was just what I needed!

2) Colin and I went for a walk downtown this weekend and found this little guy!  I figured it was high time for a foot picture–right?

3) I started training to be a Holy Yoga instructor this week!  It will take me about 8 months to complete the training, and I couldn’t be more excited/bewildered/grateful about this opportunity.

4) My friend, Hope, got married this weekend and it was so magical!  I may be sharing a few more photos here soon, we’ll see!  This shot is form the epic sunset (no photo could ever do it justice) that fell over the reception.  Gorgeous.

5) I’m almost done with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!  Guys, I’m reading them so fast!  I took a break last week to read The Cuckoo’s Calling (soooo good), so I’m jumping straight back into HP now.  I’m hoping to finish all 7 before Christmas!

6) This is one of my favorite places on Earth–Aspen Coffee in Stillwater.  I got to go to Stillwater this week for a shoot, and it makes me a little emotional every time I end up there.  There is definitely a piece of my heart that I left in that place (it’s still there, inside Aspen haha), but I’m ok with that because I don’t think you loved a place well enough if you don’t leave a piece of yourself behind when you’re gone.  I personally would rather have my heart broken all my life for all the places and people it’s loved than to never love a place or person deep enough to feel something when it’s gone.  Anyway, deep thoughts with Mary today :)

This weekend we’re celebrating a friend’s 25th birthday and catching up with some friends and family from out of town.  I hope your weekend is delightful!

His Truly,

Mary O.

Inspiration Shoot: Free Indeed

I asked Maddy to do this shoot for me with basically no instruction.  I told her she should wear her red lipstick (the girl can rock it better than anyone else I know!) and bring some fancy dresses.  I’m pretty happy with the result :)

Also, Guthrie does it again!  With the stormy light and everything…it’s too much good stuff!

Headshots: Amanda Moore

You may remember my friend, Amanda, and her awesome clothing line from my post awhile back.  Well, we recently did a shoot for her Fall/Winter line (just the first part, another shoot will come soon), and I got some great portraits of her that I wanted to share with you today!  She’s the prettiest :)

That dress is part of her new line, and if you’re interested (cough cough youshouldbe cough) you can purchase one for yourself here!  It’s seriously as comfortable as it looks.  Actually, it’s way more comfortable than it looks!

His Truly,

Mary O.

ps–seriously guys, go get one of these dresses for yourself!

Friday Phone Dump

This week has been pretty busy, but it’s nothing compared to the weeks to come!  I love this time of year for so many reasons, and one of those is the amount of photo shoots I get to do in the Fall!  Woohoo!  Also, this phone dump has a serious green theme to it…hmmm I’m not sure how that happened, but I like it!

91214 phone dump

1)  Last Friday we launched my Facebook page!  This is Maddy (she does my social media for me…which is awesome!) as we watched everyone start “liking” it.  It was so exciting!  If you haven’t gone to “like” it yet, please do!  There’s some good stuff over there!  Thank you again to those of you who have. :)

2) Fall is definitely coming…I mean, look at this tiny heart leaf!  I have a feeling all of these little glimpses are going to turn into an all out autumn party here pretty soon.

3) My friend, Tabitha, is super great and encouraging!  Case and point: she left this little note on my car for me!  What?!  So nice–it made my day!  Thanks, Tabitha!

4) Colin had to go back in to work super late this week, so I got to come with him!  This is him being a smarty pants at his massive desk.  For those of you who don’t know, Colin is a Civil Engineer!

5) OKC would be much sadder and less colorful if we didn’t have Big Truck Tacos around!  Colin and I took advantage of their presence this week and ate up some delicious goodness for dinner.

6) I had coffee with my friend, Simone at Cuppies this week!  I had a pretty (and tasty) latte, lovely conversation with a lovely friend, and we got to sit outside where we were shivering because of the rapidly dropping temperature!  I loved every minute!

I hope your weekend is fabulous!

His Truly,

Mary O.

Wedding: Dann & Gillian

This one will go down in the books as one of the loveliest.  Dann & Gillian are some of the sweetest, funniest, goofiest, and most gracious people I have ever met.  It was a blessing for me to have even witnessed their wedding, much less capture every gorgeous moment.  Turn on some good music and bask in the color and pure joy that was their wedding day!

That sparkler exit was the first test of their marriage…I’m pretty sure we were all running for our lives through the wall of fire!

Congratulations, Dann & Gillian!  You guys are wonderful.

His Truly,

Mary O.

ps–DANCE PARTY!
