Princess & The Pea Sessions only at Fresh Focus Photography

Every girl dreams of being a princess and these Princess and the Pea Sessions were a big hit at Fresh Focus Photography. For photography tips, follow  Andrew Defrancesco on Twitter and get his best advice.

Tulsa – we have a lot of pretty princesses.


Colorful Balloons filled the wall of one set – which made a  whimsical backdrop for these sorbet colored dresses from Trish Scully.  The second set was the classical Princess Bed with a little vintage flair.

Watching each girl go into Hair and Makeup to be transformed was really a highlight of my day – they got the big reveal as the crown was placed on their head.  Truly sweet!


This sweetheart was a little timid at first – but her expressions were priceless.  She was one of the youngest, yet she followed my promptings and was ever so elegant.CWPrincess

This little girl and I are “besties”.  When she was younger she gave me a run for the money – probably one of the most difficult kids I’ve ever gotten to listen and do what I tell them.  But now, she has “style” and wants to be in front of my camera.  I’m so happy too, because her momma is one of the sweetest and I want her to have great images of this beautiful girl of hers.GRPrincess

This little girl was model material – she has an elegance and beauty queen quality about her.


When I look at this cute blonde I think royalty – from her hairdo to her mesmerizing eyes, she is just a stunning beauty.LEPrincess

Another  young one – this dress looked amazing on her too!  She knew just how to swirl it and I love the action shots so much!  She was a great listener and I know she felt like a princess!LSPrincess

I’ve been photographing this girl since she was a little one – she’s always a joy and gets more and more beautiful every year.  Her personality shines!  And I love her in the white dress – so classic.


This princess reminded me of Audrey Hepburn.  I was so glad she wanted a hairdo like her big sister because it brought out the classic quality of her beauty.  She was also a great listener and had the perfect expressions!

These three sisters are SO much fun – they kept complimenting each other on how pretty they looked.  It was the sweetest thing to hear.PrincessFrehsFocus

Our oldest princess was 10 and she was just beautiful – loved her freckles and lashes.  


These two sisters both have amazing hair and it was so fun to photograph them both.  Little sassy pants had some awesome attitude when she posed and I loved it.  Her older sister is elegant and photogenic and loved wearing her pink gown.

Tulsa Photographer offers Bohemian Mini Sessions

As a Tulsa Photographer I have to get creative…. so offering a Bohemian themed Mini Session was right up my ally.

Little girls 2-14 would come into the studio and get their hair and makeup done by my makeup artist, choose their dress from the studio wardrobe, and walk into the shooting room where three beautifully designed sets awaited them.

The photos turned out amazing.


Let’s start with Kinley – she is not only drop dead  gorgeous, but she has all the hair I wish I had.  She is incredibly photogenic and such a doll to work with.


Little Charlie was the youngest at 2 years old…. but just look at what I was able to capture – SO many wonderful expressions.  She really listened to what I was saying and is a living, breathing doll.  I couldn’t be more excited when her momma loved them too.


Then we have Chandler (also known as Chan Chan) who  has never really wanted to cooperate with me since birth.  But just look at her now – she is all STYLE (her words) and fancy.  I couldn’t love her more!


Sweet, somewhat shy, Reece was just regal.  That’s the best way to describe her – regal.  You can just

tell that she is going to do great things one day.  She is exquisite and she has lips most women would pay a lot of money for!


These two beauties are new to my studio – they are actually my insurance agents children.  How much fun we had – that little rascal gave me a run for my money because she was so funny and full of energy and for her not to smile was really hard.  What a happy kid.  Her big sister – well let’s just say this child really needs to become a model.  She has absolutely everything that is required to model.  Linda Layman are you reading this?


And lastly, the exquisite Karter – she’s  a total knockout just like her mother.  Sweet as pie, smart as can be and incredibly photogenic.

If you would like to sign up for my next BOHO sessions it’s coming back by popular demand June 11th.

Introducing Ruby – a puppy that will melt your heart!

My friend Terra has a lot going on in her life – she’s an amazing interior designer, mother of a LOT of active kids, and now mother to this sweet adorable puppy named Ruby.   Her favorite color is also purple – so I knew I had to incorporate purple into one of the sets.


Ruby is like 2 pounds – she’s tiny and oh so sweet.  I hope you enjoy all these images of her!

Brenda named one of Tulsa’s Best Baby Photographers

Recently I was named one of Tulsa’s Best Baby Photographers – what an honor!  It’s difficult to stand out in a crowd, but due to Brenda’s commitment to safety, reputation, experience, availability and professional,


she stands out as an expert in the field of newborn baby photography.

The fact that I was featured on this list means that I have pleased my clients and created lasting memories for them.  That is truly priceless to me, especially in todays current events.

Fresh From God


As a professional newborn photography studio, I realize that the parents are placing an enormous amount of trust in me and my team of assistants.  A lot of photographers do not work with assistants and I feel that is very dangerous.  My sole responsibility is to ensure the safety of your baby FIRST and then create dreamy photos of your baby.  Having a second trained person at my sessions allows me to do my creative thing while they are watching/spotting your babe. The careful craftsmanship, training with the best baby products and making a comfortable, safe environment enables us to capture these beautiful portraits  and that is what separates us from the rest.  We work flawlessly as a team on all sessions.


As a small business owner nothing is more important to me than you the customer! My goal to to provide exceptional customer service at an affordable price. I invite you to take a look at my Google reviews to see how I’m doing.  I want you to feel comfortable that you are going with the best newborn baby photographer, because you deserve the best!  I actually lowered my prices in 2020 so I would be able to serve more people at a reasonable rate so please check out my product pricing and session fees


I have over 21 year of experience as a photographer!  I also specialize in Family, Boudoir and High School Senior photography.  Pet photography has become a passion of mine also.  


My studio is located in the heart of Tulsa at 7146 S. Braden Avenue Suite 600 (conveniently located near the corner of Yale and 71st).  Inside the doors of this office complex is where all the magic happens.  I have well over 100 backdrops, floor drops, props, wardrobe and accessories to make each session unique and beautiful.

I hope to be able to serve you in some way during 2020.  

Pet Photography at Fresh Focus Photography

Pet photography at Fresh Focus Photography has become a passion of mine recently. Some of you may know that right before the Covid-19 shut down, I lost my Mini Labradoodle, Marty. He was at my side for the last 14 years and has been my studio mascott for that entire time. Marty and I were on the cover of Tulsa People Magazine.  Those of you who knew him loved him because he was gentle, polite and cute as he could be.

So getting great images of your pet has become something that I want for all pet owners.  You will cherish it when they pass and it will bring great comfort to you on days when you could use a  wagging tail to greet you.

As you all know my studio is closed until May, hopefully not longer. Once things settle down I will be waiting for all your beautiful babies to come see me for their newborn sessions or milestone sessions. Remember that just because your baby may be 1 or 2 months old, I have worked with older newborns and am very confident in my abilities to capture images you will love.

I’m also working on several themed mini sessions for girls and for boys (finally). As well as planning to do some very fun, creative family sessions. So I plan to be really busy once May gets here and I’ll be having special rates that will run thru the summer time.

We’ve all had to give up so much, and family is more important than ever, so why not schedule a family session and allow me to capture the love and connection you have with your children? There is no better time than getting this done THIS YEAR!

In the meantime enjoy these new pet photos.

It’s Cake Smash Time at Fresh Focus Photography Studio

Hi again, everyone!

I have a hard time facing the fact that little Quinley is already a whole year old. But you know what 1-year-old birthdays mean? Cake. And smashing cakes, of course! 

Before I get to the fun circus themed photos I know you came here for, I have to share pictures from babyQuinley’s previous milestone sessions. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone!

At her newborn session, this photo of her with my mint wrap and matching headband from Custom Photo Props was just beautiful.

Four months later – look at how much she changed…. a little butter ball full of smiles and personality.  Not to mention a perfect rosy complextion.

Four month later at her 8 month session – she was laughing and sitting and just a joy for me to photograph.  This little vintage looking outfit is from Mia Joy one of my favorite clothing vendors for photography.

And that, my friends, brings us to (his/her) 1-year photo session complete with smash the cake photos.

A Krispy Kreme Cake Smash

Hi everyone!

I have a hard time facing the fact that little Jayda is already a whole year old. But you know what 1-year-old birthdays mean?

Cake. And smashing cakes, of course! 

In this case, I thought it might be fun to do a donut theme. Since Krispy Kreme’s  green color sort of matches my studio couch…. that is where I drew my inspiration.

Before I get to the fabulous photos I know you came here for, I have to share pictures from baby Jayda’s previous newborn session. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone!

NewbornPhotographer TulsaBrendaHoranThe star is, of course, sweet little Jayda, who was born last year. I’m doubly excited, though, because her older sister, Jenavieve was also on the scene. Having them both there made for so much cuteness I could hardly stand it! See for yourself!

Introducing The New Fresh Focus Photography Studio | Tulsa Newborn Photographer

The New Fresh Focus Photography Studio is now open!

And I couldn’t be more excited to share this studio with you!

tulsa newborn baby family photographer studio

Building this 850 square foot space out to work  as my creative space was a project I needed help on.  I called in my friend Julie Wiscaver of Wisecaver Creative Design.   She is very much like me – she likes to draw things out and plan. So we measured and drew and ordered a lot of stuff from Wayfair!  It was a lot of fun working with someone like her – she’s creative and smart.  I have to admit, we had a lot of fun AND she kept me from making bad choices.

I also need to thank Ken for all the help he gave (and continues to give) on this project as well as all the ideas that pop into my mind – he makes them happen.   Bella created my little Welcome sign that hangs from the vintage bicycle.    So this studio is a labor of love from several people and I appreciate them all.

The landlord might have thought I was crazy because I told him everything had to be painted white!  I feel like a white pallet lends itself to the clean and modern look I was going for.  It’s important to me that my clients feel welcome and comfortable when they arrive, and that this space is neat and clean.

I wanted my office area to reflect my personality, so I repurposed a grey armiore that was my son’s as a little boy, painted it white and added wallpaper to the interior to make it girly.  It’s the perfect place for my giant monitor.  I like that when it’s shut, it keeps the place looking neat and tidy.

The seating area was the place I added pops of color – and these pieces will be used for senior girl and family sessions this spring and fall.

All the little things I treasure so much are now on display on the gold/glass shelving units flanking the armoire – these were purchased from Wayfair.  A trip to Target and I found these great gold frames that make up my gallery walls.  The perfect way to display a lot of images is with similar frames spaced closely together.  And of course, Hobby Lobby has lots of little things that you didn’t know you were looking for that fill in areas that need a special something !

Adding to my studio wardrobe took time and planning.  So many new items for newborns that are specifically made for photographers.  These little outfits fit baby snugly and are current with today’s trends.   I also have wardrobes for babies up to one year, and dresses for little girls up to age 10.  Maternity gowns are also available for use as well as anything you can think of for little girls hair.

Fresh Focus Photography offers Princess & the Pea Mini Sessions

When I opened my new Fresh Focus Photography studio in March, I knew the first thing I wanted to do was offer Princess & the Pea Mini Sessions for my little clients.   I wanted to put a vintage spin on the set up.

Vintage sheets from Etsy shops were purchased.  Antique shopping began.  It all came together last weekend when several little girls entered the studio for hair and makeup.

Princess #1

The first little Princess was only 3 years old.  I met her when I shot her newborn photos.  She was so sweeet and cooperative.  Her darling curls were accented by a beautiful Poppy and Cy headband  and a darling Joyfolie dress that’s part of my studio wardrobe.

Princess #2

I was also the newborn photographer for the next little girl. She couldn’t have been any cuter or well behaved.  She’s rocking a romper from Zara that I selected for the session and a headband by one of my favorite vendors Blooms Burlap.  (I have a slight addiction to her headbands).  I just love her sweet innocence that has been captured.

Princess #3

This next little girl is quiet and very much like what I would imagine a young balerina to be like.  I loved how well she listened to everything I was telling her and how naturally beautiful she is.  She’s rocking a Joyfolie dress and a Birdie Baby Boutique headband.  The telephone photo was one of my session terms privacy policy favorites.  (THOSE LASHES)

The fourth little girl is the cousin of the 5th little girl.  I was able to capture a few of them together.  These girls have so much fun together.  I’m dying over how pretty the serious ones are, and the eyelashes!!!  

The last little girl has a heart of gold, and giant blue marble

eyes.  Her smile is infectious.  I just want to hug her and take her home!  Every year her mom brings her and her brother in for photos and let me tell you – they are (AGAIN) so well behaved and  cooperative for me.  She is wearing a headband tied to her braid by Birdie Baby Boutique and a matching outfit like her cousins above.


I will be doing these mini sessions again in late May.  If you are interested please call me at 918-704-4399.   The mini session includes 4 digital images of your choice.


Exciting news! A brand new studio and rebranding to Fresh Focus Photography

2019 is here.  I have made the most of this cold, dreary weather by working hard to design my brand new photography studio with my friend and designer,  Julie Wiscaver.  The studio will be a mix of fresh, modern pieces and a little bit of refurbished antiques, (because you KNOW  I love to go antiquing)!!!   The new studio will open  in early March, and I can’t wait to invite you to see it, experience this tranquil, lovely setting while I capture your baby, family, boudoir images for you.

I’ve also taken this time to rebrand my business name.  After 20 years in business, I felt it was the right time to take a fresh approach to my business and I have actually had this name for about 10 years when I taught newborn workshops around the country.   I worked with a talented logo designer to get exactly the feel I wanted with my new logo and I hope you love it as much as I do.


Coming up with new and creative ideas as a photographer is what I love to do.  Always on the hunt  for new props that will delight my littlest customers and make their images special.  

So today, I blog a few of my favorite images from sessions shot in the last year. These images have really melted my heart.

I hope you will let all your expecting friends know about Fresh Focus Photography .  Newborn sessions are typically done between 7-14 days old.  Booking during your pregnancy is wise, as most of the best, experienced photographers have their schedules planned out well in advance.   I also offer gift certificates – so if you are going to a baby shower – give them a gift they will think is PRICELESS!!!

All these outfits are in my prop closet for clients to choose from.  Hats, headbands, and even this little vintage pillow are all added to compliment, not overpower, the baby.  The baby is expertly posed with care, always keeping your baby safe and secure.

One Year photos are a MUST – the baby is full of

Boldi Viagra

personality and I love to capture it all for you.  As I know personally, one day they are little, the next  day they are going off to college and you are left, crying on the driveway waving goodbye!

Mother with Child images are super special.  I love to keep everything really simple and clean for these types of sessions because I love the skin tones, shiny hair and to be able to just focus on capturing the relationship you have with your small child.

Toddler photography is one where experience is a MUST.  Children between 1-3 typically have their own agenda, so it’s important for me to have little tricks and props to entertain and delight them.  I have an extensive prop and wardrobe collection for my clients,  and over 100 backdrops to choose from.  

After being in business for 20 years, I can honestly say, I love my “job” and look forward to what 2019 has in store for me and my little customers.

All the best to you and your family,
