Abbey Northcutt Photography » Oklahoma City and Edmond, OK photographer Abbey Northcutt


It started with a conversation between my Dentist and I. We were talking about houses and I mentioned that we really wanted to live on this one specific street… a street (if you can call a gravel road a “street”) that’s tucked away, but still the middle of Edmond. No one knows about it. But she did. She said a very good friend of hers lived there, and was thinking about selling. A few weeks later (newly pregnant/quite morning-sick), we went out to see the property. We loved it and made an offer. They graciously accepted and gave us a the ridiculously long closing period we requested. In the throws of morning-sickness and a home renovation project that WOULD NOT END we slowly slowly inched toward putting our house on the market.

Yesterday we FINALLY were able to list our house. I set the sign outside at noon and 7 hours later we had an offer. We were so surprised! This is all good, and we see God’s loving hand in it all, but I’m exhausted from growing a human, home renovation, and now we get to pack and move out in less than a month! I long to cuddle with my son more, prepare for our new baby, cook, swim in our new pool and hang out with my Husband. I love photography and all the wonderful clients I’ve worked with over the past 8 years, but some things are more important. So I’m cutting business back. For now I’m going to only work with returning clients, family members of former clients, and individuals needing a headshot (taken at a business w/studio lighting or outdoors). This isn’t goodbye, it’s just a time to breathe a little.

Senior Portraits // Oklahoma City Photographers

This Senior traveled from Amarillo for her photo session! She wanted her senior pics to look different than her friends …and she wanted trees. We decided to take her photos out at Will Rodgers Park to really capture some tall old trees and beautiful backgrounds. Seriously love that park!

She brought her Mom, Grandma, Aunt, and two cousins to the session. I often get asked if it’s okay to bring someone along to our shoots. My answer is always, “Yes, The more the merrier!” She also brought three great outfits (I don’t limit the number of outfits seniors can bring, but I think three is the perfect number) and a hat. I love it when people bring hats! It instantly changes up the feel of the outfit and brings more character into the photoshoot. I think her hat photos are some of my favorites.

Our Family Photos // OKC, Oklahoma Photographer

One of the hardest and most rewarding sessions I shoot all year is my own family. For the past two years my BFF has helped take our pictures. I pose with my family and direct her with my plastered on smile… praying that our sweet little guy is looking somewhere near the camera. Bonus points if isn’t crying. You should have seen the crazy jumping, singing, and dancing that went on to little B to smile in our picture. Family Pictures 2014… Check! Here are my top picks from both of our families. Love these times!
