Road Trip- The Big Blue Whale

I think this place deserves it's own post because it was my favorite roadside attraction on this trip, and quite possibly ever! Well worth the stop if you're ever traveling through Oklahoma. It's on Route 66 in Catoosa, OK and while it's open to the public, it's unfortunately not open to swim at any longer. You can read about the history of it here.

Road Trip Highlights

For the past 5 years (minus one year), we've taken a pretty epic road trip during the summer. This year we drove from GA to St. Louis, then Branson, MO, then to Oklahoma City, and Plano, TX, to Baton Rouge, LA, and then home (with a lunch stop in New Orleans). A few of the stops were specifically to see family or friends, and a few of the stops were just for fun. We also stopped along the way in various states just for roadside attractions. Here are a few of the highlights (not necessarily in order)…

The St. Louis Arch-

The Museum of Osteology, Oklahoma City-

The Awakening Buried Giant, Chesterfield MO-

 Somewhere along Route 66-

Branson, MO-

The World's Largest Toy Museum, Branson, MO-

One more stop to share, but it needs it's own post...


Newborn Baby William

I got invited last week to shoot this sweet baby's first set of photos… while he was still in the hospital and less than 2 days old! The session was a gift from his parents friends, so it was my first time meeting them when I walked into their hospital room. They warmly welcomed me in and allowed me to shoot it the way I wanted to, notice no typical "hospital shots", and this little guy could not have been better, he was alert and content the whole time. Thanks for having me, and congrats to the Fergusons!
