Christie Mellor Photography » Custom Portraiture Based In The OKC Area

It’s that time of year again – time for senior pics! And it is so much fun! And this year, it’s all the more special because so many of my friends now have a son or daughter who is graduating. It’s a bittersweet thing watching so many dear friends going through this final year of high school with their kids. The last time I photographed this guy, he was in middle school, for goodness sake! What a difference a few years make! And aside from the fact that the camera absolutely loves him (that smile!), he just happens to be a genuinely nice guy. Have I mentioned that I love my job?

This was such a beautiful night! And it was made all the more special by getting to make new friends in a new place! So much of the work I get to do takes place in the OKC Metro area, usually in places I have been many times before. But when I spoke to the parents of this senior, they mentioned how they had had family photos made in Stillwater many years ago and thought it would be so nice to do her senior portraits in a place that had special meaning to their family. How could I not jump at the chance?

Not growing up in Oklahoma, this was the first time I had really been to Stillwater, and I have to say I kinda loved it! So much to see there and the campus is GORGEOUS! It was the perfect place for this senior. Some people you meet for the first time and feel like you’ve known them for years. This was definitely the case on this night, and it quickly became clear what an amazing person she is. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for her and her future!

Having a family session on a near-100 degree day could’ve been miserable. But this family took it all in stride and made it look easy. And these kids . . . well, they were not only adorable, but they were some of the most polite and well-behaved children I’ve ever seen! Who cares about heat when you get to spend an evening with such a great family? I kept smiling while editing these – it couldn’t be helped, looking at all those sweet smiles!

After a relaxing vacation with the family, I was really expecting the post-vacation blues. Ever had those? But this year, thankfully, I was spared that little adjustment time in large part to getting right back to work. Don’t ask me why, but getting back into gear has been fun and exhilarating! And this session was a huge part of it.

I have known this senior since she was very little, so it was with a bit of both denial and thrill that I got to photograph her. Ever since I can remember, she has loved reading and the theater – two things we wanted to capture in these photos. And since Oklahoma decided to pour rain during the one day we could be together, I’d say things worked out just fine! And because the entire family was in town, we snagged a few shots of all of them together as well as a few of her little sister.
