Jennings | Bells, TX

Not sure how I got so lucky to photograph this family from their first baby girls newborns…. to now. They make some gorgeous kids am I right? Starkly different, gorgeous all the same. The Jenning’s family booked me during my trip to Oklahoma/Texas when I make the rounds and photograph clients for a 2 week window. Texas put on quite the show for our session in early April, wheat fields and wildflowers, can’t get any better! Thank you Micah + Luke for continuing to use Happy Trails Photography. I love capturing your legacy… and those beautiful kids.

Coyle | Maternity

Wow it's been a minute since I've had the time to blog! We all know life gets crazy. I wanted to feature this session not only because of the lovely photos but because of the lovely clients they are. This family has been with me from almost the beginning and they continue to choose to invest in photography. As their little family grows, I find myself thankful to get to capture a small glimpse of each chapter of their lives. Excited to photograph your new addition soon. It will be here before we know it!

Much love, Happy Trails

Happily Hixon

So much has changed since I first met Amy. For both of us. Throughout our stages of dating, engagement, marriage, and now motherhood, I have drawn closer to this woman. She is beautiful and has been blessed with a family just as beautiful. Thankful for her and Cody's example as husband and wife and now mom and dad. Though I have called Amy during many trials that parenting brings, the best advice she has ever given is "do the next thing". This simple phrase has gotten me through some dark times. I am not saying they have it all together... she wouldn't want me to say that. I am saying, it has been a saving grace to talk to someone in the same place of life, taking the same steps, and telling me I'm not alone in the mess. Thank you Hixon's. Love you so. 

The Lowery Family

Always a treat getting to photograph the Lowery's each year. They have a beautiful little family and every time, I walk away wanting to hang out more. Their son Leo has changed their lives in more ways than one. He has a very rare diagnosis with only 400 other cases known in the world. These two have handled it all with so much grace and strength. They have refused to let it keep them from involving Leo in everything normal to them, like roping and rodeo. I'd say Leo is in some pretty great hands to have parents like that. Be sure and check out his Momma's blog to learn more and follow their story. Thank you all for choosing Happy Trails to capture your family again this year! Much love to you Lowery's. 

"Oh let's be adventurers darling..."

Olivia and I met one summer in between college semesters, as camp counselors. We were both students at Oklahoma State at the time, who took off to Rogers Arkansas for a  summer of teaching children how to ride horses. I wasn't expecting to walk away from that summer with 2 new best friends that I continue to walk through life with. (I actually thought I was going there to find a husband...) God is good. He knew what I needed most. This girl has a beautiful, adventurous spirit. It seems she has found a man that shares that same quality. A man that nourishes that in her, rather than trying to box her in. I love that. I love these two. Thanks for coming to the ranch, and allowing me to be apart of your love story. Can't wait to stand beside you on your big day!

Rex + Lauren

I was super excited when Lauren contacted me about a session. For a few reasons! Lauren is that girl that is a natural beauty. She is someone that always seems at ease, making pregnancy look like a breeze! I had never met Rex until the day of the shoot but I can tell he loves Lauren to pieces. He was quick to pull her in tight and keep her close. So happy to capture this chapter for Lauren and Rex. Hopefully many more to come.... thanks for choosing Happy Trails Photography!

Perzee | Party of Four

Another one of my favorite Stillwater families, the Perzee's. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to photograph them while they were still expecting, and now here we are doing a family session with TWO little ones! Aren't their kids gorgeous?? Ryan and Michelle make some beautiful babies. I think we can all agree to that. 

Thank you guys again, for choosing Happy Trails to capture your family. And thank you for bed to sleep in while in Stilly, as well as the ear and late night talk! We love you guys very much and cherish your friendship. I hope you find yourselves cherishing these photos for many years to come. 

Peachy Family | Thomas OK

We love this family so much. Becky and I met in college, were in each other's weddings, and have watched our families grow. She is my go-to of all things motherhood. I even call her before I call the doctor, haha. One of her sisters contacted me about a session, and what a joy it was to help spoil them for her! This crew totally deserves it all.

Love you guys! Enjoy your highlights from our time together :)
