Need a gift idea for mom? How about a gift YOU would like to receive?

I am now booking Mother’s Day mini sessions. This versatile mini can be purchased for someone looking to…

…. buy for mom! What grandparent doesn’t want new pictures of their kids and grandkids?

…. buy for your wife! Get portraits of dad and the kids for mom to proudly display in her office, in her wallet or on her walls.

…. buy for yourself (or email this blog post to your husband and maybe he will get the hint)! A session for mother’s day of mom and her kids will be memorable and so fun!

If you book your session by April 1st you will receive an additional digital image, so don’t wait too long.

** 50% of the package price is due upon booking and the remainder is due upon delivery of your order. Your order will be ready by Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 13th). 20% off additional print orders!

You know those adorable pregnant women you see and think, “I wish I looked like that pregnant!” Well, Lauren is definitely one of those ladies. She looked absolutely beautiful at our session (35 weeks pregnant, mind you)! These 2 were total naturals, and it translated wonderfully in these images. I can’t wait for their new bundle’s newborn session in April! Enjoy:)

Last month I participated in FatMumSlim’s February photo a day challenge on Instagram. I pretty much fail every “take a picture a day” challenge I start, so I’m excited to have finished this one (minus a few days)! I played by taking pictures with my iPhone and using Instagram. I may not always tote around my DSLR, but I always have my phone! Feel free to play along this month. You can do like I did and play with Instagram (find me and I’ll follow you! My name is philsbride). Or you can use your camera, upload to Facebook, Twitter, your blog, etc. If you use it on Twitter or Instagram use the hashtag #marchphotoaday

And now, here is a collage of my photos from the February Photo a Day challenge!

The weather has been beautiful in Oklahoma City this winter. We have had very few freezing temperatures and typically reach a high of 55-60 most days. The date we booked the session with Paul and Joanna was the COLDEST day of this winter so far, the high was in the 30’s. Thankfully, they were willing to go outdoors and tough it out! We got some great outdoor shots. There was also a beautiful indoor garden we were able to take advantage of. I just love this couple and I’m so excited for them to welcome their first daughter in April! It was hard for me to pick only a few favorites from this session.

I have kept my own personal blog for years. I’m not always consistent with my updates, but all that is about to change. After many long nights, reading, studying, planning… I have launched my brand new photo blog! You can plan to read about recent sessions at Tavia Redburn Photography, specials I’m having, as well as the occasional (or not so occasional) personal post. I have a lot in store for this blog, so I hope you will bookmark me, Facebook me, add me to your Google reader… or whatever it is that you do.




As the holidays passed and I was beginning to settle into 2012 I realized I still hadn’t photographed my sweet 3 year old’s 3 year portraits! It’s bittersweet when your baby gets older as another. He is not a toddler anymore, he is a kid! A kid who loves to fly around the house as Buzz Lightyear or Spiderman, who loves to act tough but confessed to me his love of snuggling in bed with mom and dad. My baby is now a kid! And my love for him is more than my heart can contain!
