I always have great intentions to update my blog regularly. And then life gets in my way!

Some of you know that we have new family members in our home. It’s super-exciting and crazy-busy for Team Potts! I took off the first three months of the year so I could spend a little more time at home. In April I went back to work, and by May I was going full-steam!

While this post doesn’t include every session I photographed in May, here are a handful of images I just loved! (And then we’ll see if I can make more regularly scheduled updates.:))


Quick note: Because of the (wonderful!) changes for our family, I am only accepting 40 clients this year. I have photographed nearly half of those. If you know you want a session for 2016, please do call the studio at 918-331-9777 or email emily@emilypotts.com as soon as possible so I can reserve an appointment for you. I definitely don’t want to miss out on working together if you know I’m the photographer for you!

Perhaps you’ve noticed it’s been a little quiet around here. Crickets, really.

I’ve been on family leave since January of this year, and while I have loved spending time with little ones, I’m excited to come back to work!

With more kiddos at home, and the growth of the small business side of my company, I will not be able to take as many sessions as I have in previous years – only 40 for the rest of 2016. I want to kindly encourage those who know they’d love to work with me to call as soon as possible to reserve their spot, even if it’s for later in the year.

To kick things off, I am bringing back my most popular Limited Edition session, Heirloom Fields. These 20-minute spring sessions are held in our favorite field and are perfect for families and children.

Your $125 session fee comes with an 8×10, (2) 5x7s, (8) wallets and the digital file of your favorite image (regularly valued at $255). Many of our most popular portrait products are also available at promotional prices.

Sessions will be held in late May and early June. We only have ten appointments available and they will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Be sure to email emily@emilypotts.com or call the studio (918.331.9777) to reserve yours!

I married into a family of crafters. All of my female in-laws know their way around a glue gun and ribbon and whatever they set their mind to making looks glorious in the end.

Me . . . well, not so much.

That’s why I was so grateful to come across this idea for a “Gratitude Tree”.  My son and I put it together in just under an hour, and I have to say I’m pretty pleased with the turnout! Here’s how to make one of your own!



You will need:

  • 1 terra cotta pot
  • paint (acrylic or spray) & brush
  • floral foam (that fits the inside of your pot)
  • ribbon
  • twigs
  • cardstock (in your choice of colors)
  • a small hole punch
  • a felt or paint pen (I chose a gold one)
  • scissors

Here’s what to do:

  1. Paint your pot
  2. Once dry, insert your floral foam and push down to the bottom
  3. Push your twigs into the floral foam so they branch out within the pot
  4. Tie your ribbon around the top of your pot (and attach with a bit of glue if it slides)
  5. Cut your card stock into leaf shapes
  6. Punch holes in the card stock (one hole at each end of the leaves)
  7. Invite your family to write what they are thankful for on the leaves
  8. Slide the leaves onto the twigs
  9. Repeat steps 7-8 as many times as desired until Thanksgiving


I hope this helps your family keep gratitude front and center this Thanksgiving season!
