Christie Mellor Photography » Custom Portraiture Based In The OKC Area

A couple of weeks ago, I had the honor of photographing one of my favorite vocal groups, Acappella!  When I met my husband in college,  one of our first dates was to an Acappella concert, and I will never forget the impact they had on me that night.  Their music is so catchy, so energetic, and so worshipful, that I was and remain hooked!  Formed in 1982, the group has sold millions of albums and toured all over the world.  Having just introduced two new members, they wanted some new photos of the group.  They did not have to ask me twice!

I was so thrilled to get to photograph this wonderful family last weekend!  They had been enjoying a rare visit between three generations of their family, and wanted to get a few shots of them all together to remember this time.  That’s one of the things I love so much about photography – it’s the equivalent of taking a memory and tucking it away someplace safe for later.  We had a such a great time!

A few years ago, some of our closest friends moved away to Vienna, Austria to work with an organization that provides Bibles to Eastern European nations.  Naturally we were thrilled for them and knew that what they were doing was incredibly important, but we also knew that we would miss them all terribly.  Thanks to the technology of Skype, we have been able to keep in touch over the years.  What a world we live in!  Not only can we talk to our dear friends, but our kids can see each other and actually play together over the computer – something that wasn’t really possible only a few years ago!  Despite how amazing Skype can be, you can imagine how excited we were to learn they would be visiting this summer – for a month!!!   Needless to say, it has been like old times having them here, and I am SO grateful.

To preserve this time, I wanted to get a few shots of the girls together before our friends left to go home.   The heat refused to cooperate – it was still 106 degrees when the sun was setting!  But the girls had a great time giggling, playing games and did I mention giggling?  Here are a few pics.  Enjoy!

Until Next Time,

Christie

It’s been a while since my last post.  Partly because the last few weeks have completely gotten away from me, but mostly because it has been HOT.  I don’t mean normal heat, but the kind of heat that keeps you ducking for cover inside your home, praying your air conditioner is happy and well-cared for, you know?  It’s the kind of heat reported in places that normally don’t see these kind of temperatures – the kind that, when combined with the natural disasters we seem to hear about constantly, cause people to ask each other if there are actually more occurrences of “global weirdness” each year or just the perception that there are more because of how small our world has gotten with news coverage.  Either way, it is h-o-t, people!  And folks are just not that excited about having photo sessions in 100+ degree weather – go figure, haha.

Actually, I have been working on a couple of shoots I can’t wait to share with you.  Until then, I will be praying for rain.  Rain to cool us down, rain to soak this over-baked ground and bring relief to all those struggling to pay their water and power bills these past couple of months.  Won’t you join me?
