Get With The Plan…It’s Jocci!

Are you with the plan or are you confused by the plan?  If you forgot what the plan is, let me give you a primer.  The plan involves you looking at these silly words for a second and then going down to the happy pictures below and then enjoying the pure awesomeness that Jocci brought to the o and to the j FunCenter during her superseniorpictosnaps.

So are you in?  Are you a part of this plan??  You are?!  Well then, I declare that you are not going to be missing out on anything (which I was kind of worried about for a second or two there) and instead you are going to be getting all sorts of awesome all up in your computer grille real quick like!  But before any of that, we need to give MuchLove to Jocci for stopping by and letting us spend a little bit of time with her so we could do the whole picture thing, and then we need to tell all of you good peeps out there in Blogland to – Enjoy!

Let’s Take Some Time For Carly!

Sometimes, do you ever just find yourself thinking that it would be nice to take some time out of your crazy day and devote it to Carlytime?  Well today is your lucky day.  Because this post is all about Carly, and is filled to the brim with Carlytime!

What is ‘Carlytime’ you ask?  It’s a time where all is well with the world, a place where her smile will brighten up your day and a state of being that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a happy in your heart!  And even though this statement has not been approved by the FDA, I’m pretty sure it’s good for your health.

So it sounds to me like a little bit of Carlytime would be good for all of us!  But before we start it up, let’s take a moment to give MuchLove to Carly for being so incredibly awesome to work with, and to all my Peeps of Blog doing those crazy things that you do – Enjoy!

Get Down Now It’s Spencer!

The wheels of the Otis & James Bullet Train (we’ve upgraded from the old jalopy that we used to have) keep on turning and the next stop on this tour of whatever it is that we do (I think it’s pictures but I’m easily confused) is with the one & only Spencer!  My friends.  I come to you today with the news that there was this day and there was this time and there was an intersection of the Spencer and the o to the j and the results, my dear dear friends, were wonderful.

But all of these words, what is the point if there aren’t any samplesnaps to back up the statements that I’m making.  So I will now leave this world of tippytappying on the Keyboard of Otis (it’s solid gold and sits on a mountaintop) and will now send MuchLove to Spencer for giving us a little bit of his time, and to all my peeps out there in Blogville doing what they can to hold on to every last drop of summer that we have – Enjoy!

Hey Now…It’s Irelyn!

What do you think…should we just forget all of the dumb words that I would put at the top of one of these blog posts and instead just get right to the point, and the point being that we are here to take a look at the sampleseniorsnaps of the oh so lovely Irelyn and that our time with her was magical and fantastical and we wish that every day could be this awesome but it would be like if you ate pizza for every meal at first it sounds like the best idea ever but then you don’t appreciate them as much as you used to before the 24/7/365 pizza diet that your on and then your whole universe falls apart and so we understand that every day can’t be a Irelyn day but we are so happy that we had one day that was a Irelyn day and we will cherish it!  What do you say, forgo that part?

While I’m waiting for your answer let’s take a moment to give MuchLove to Irelyn for being wonderful and for stopping by the o to the j, and let’s also take one quick second to remind all of you peeps out there in Blogland that you are lovely, and to – Enjoy!

Wait.  What just happened.

Hey Now…It’s Brecklyn!

What do you think…should we just forgo all of the dumb words that I would put at the top of one of these blog posts and instead just get right to the point, and the point being that we are here to take a look at the samplepicstosnaps of the oh so lovely Breklyn and that our time with her was magical and fantastical and we wish that every day could be this awesome but it would be like if you ate choco-chip cookies for every meal at first it sounds like the best idea ever but then you don’t appreciate them as much as you used to before the 24/7/365 choco-chip cookie diet that your on and then your whole world falls apart and so we understand that every day can’t be a Brecklyn day but we are so happy that we had one day that was a Brecklyn day and we will cherish it!  What do you say, forgo that part?

While I’m waiting for your answer let’s take a moment to give MuchLove to Brecklyn for being wonderful and for stopping by the o&j, and let’s also take one quick second to remind all of you peeps out there in Blogland that you are beautiful, and to – Enjoy!

Danny.

After doing a few thousand of these blog posts there comes a point where you can’t just have somebody’s name be the title of the post because statistical odds dictate that the name has already been used as a title and then when I go to publish it there is a sad error message that comes up and says that the title has already been taken, but would I like to call it ‘danny-2′ 0r three or four and so on.  Now, as awesome as being called ‘danny-2′ sounds, nobody really wants to be called that.  Danny Jr., yes – danny-2…no.  If that does happen to be your name, however, I apologize and want to go on record as saying that your parents were a little too trendy.

But that’s not the case here.  Because I’m just about 100% positive that we’ve never had a Danny before that the Otis & James Center For Taking Pictures And Stuff (O&JCFTPAS) – which would make you the first in eleven years – which is incredible.  Much like Danny is.  Incredible.  But you don’t need all of these silly words to tell you that, all you gotta do is look at the happy pics at the bottom of these words to know that what I’m telling you is the truth, straight up.  But wait!  Before you do that I gotta send MuchLove to Danny for letting us do the whole SeniorPic thing, and to all of you shiny happy peeps out there in Blogville enjoying whatever the things that you enjoy are – Enjoy!  Wait.  What?  Whatever.  Just enjoy ok?

Well, It’s Mekenzie!

I always act surprised in the titles of these things.  As if I had just been sitting here and then BOOM there were pics in front of me that we all like ‘POST ME ONLINE NOW’ which I’m pretty sure that if my computer did that I would most likely run and hide in fear of my computer because that was clearly the day that SkyNet went live.  But enough about The Terminator.

We’re here right now at this moment in time to take a quick look at some samplesnaps from McKenzie!  She’s one of our Seniors.  She was awesome and decided to go with us for her pics.  But she’s also just awesome all the time, regardless of her pictographer choices.  And for being so awesome and for also giving us a little bit of your time, we want to give you MuchLove!  And to all you other peeps out there in wherever it is that you are doing whatever it is that you do – Enjoy!

It’s Blaise. No Joke.

Hey.  I’m not here to kid around with saying that there are new pics for you to look at.  This is not some sort of a place for ‘jokesters’ and ‘kidding around.’  This is all business, all the time.  And speaking of business, it’s time for us to get down to an item of business known as ‘the superawesome samplesnaps of Blaise.’  It’s right here on my agenda.  Right after this is afternoon nap.  But before I drift off to a world of whatever it is that I dream about (maybe unicorns?), let’s take a look at these pics.

BUT WAIT.  Before we go all off into checking out the pictosnaps, we need to take a moment to send MuchLove to Blaise for stopping by the o and the j and having the pictosnaps taken, and to all my happy happpy joy joy peeps out there in Blogland – Enjoy!

 

It’s Monday. It’s Adam.

The title of this post says it all.  We stand at the beginning of another week and we try to work up the energy to be excited for what this week has to offer.  Will it be good?  Will it be great?  Will it be incredible?  Will it be all of the above?  So many questions, and I’m afraid that li’l ol’ me doesn’t have the answer for you – you’re gonna have to find out for yourself.

What I can tell you is that we are going to start this week off with some samplesnaps of the one & only adam (even though I’m sure that there are many other Adam’s in this world the only one that matters right now within the confines of this interweb post are this Adam and that’s all you need to know.)  So take a minute to think about the week ahead.  And then take a longer moment to check out the goodness that are the sweetlysweet pictosnaps of the ever awesome Adam.  And then go about your week.  These are your orders.  Oh, and MuchLove to Adam for taking a couple of minutes to stop by FunCenter and getting some pics taken, and to all you happy peeps out there trying to figure out if your week is going to be great or awesome – Enjoy!

2015 Seniors on Facebook!

Jennifer Time.

As title of this post states, it’s Jennifer time.  And what does that mean to you, the loyal looker of all things pictures on the o to the j?  It means that it’s time to look at some lovely samplesnaps from the oh so lovely Jennifer, which in turn will make your day even more wonderful than it already is.  So basically, you’re about to get a pretty good deal and the price of admission is free.  Not bad…not bad.

I could go on and on about how our time with Jennifer was absolutely wonderful, but that would be taking away from the time that you should be gazing at just how awesome she is, and that would be a disservice to everyone.  So I will instead send MuchLove to Jennifer for being so awesome to work with, and to all my good peeps out there in Blogville doing whatever it is that you do to get yourself through the day – Enjoy!

Dig Now It’s Aubree!

We’ve gotten off to a great start here at the Otis & James Center for the Study of Pictographic Goodness, and that statement can be proven by the samplesnaps of the one & only Aubree!  I could go on and on about how she was awesome and the shoot was incredible and all that jazz, but all you gotta do is look at the snaps below these dumb words and you’ll know that I’m telling you the straight story.

But enough of these dumb words, let’s get to the part where I send Aubree MuchLove for letting us be a small part of her senior year, and I tell all you good peeps out there in BlogLand to – Enjoy!

Here we go. It’s Scotty!

Words.  Words go here.  And words saying that this is the first blog post of the 2015 Senior Season are going here.  And those words are there now.  So my work is done.  All I gotta do from here on out is just send MuchLove to Scotty for choosing the o and the j for the senior pics, and to all you good peeps out there in Land of Blog (LOB) – Enjoy!

31

Just in case any of you thought that we’ve just been sitting around here twiddling our thumbs and eating PopTarts, rest assured that this has not been the case.  One such event that we were oh so lucky to be a part of was the wedding of Lana & Cody!

I can’t say enough about this absolutely beautiful & friendly couple – as well as their wedding party and families.  They made our day absolutely fantastic!  We’re so happy they decided to let us be a part of their wedding day and wish them so MuchLove in the years to come!

Well, this is just getting sappy now, so I think that it’s time that we send MuchLove to everyone that helped make this day awesome, and tell you good people out there in Land of Blog being the beautiful people that they are to – Enjoy!

Kris

A part of the o&j family, as well as a personal friend of Jamie – Kris Barnes – tragically left this world too soon in an oil field accident this past Thursday morning. A fund in his memory has been set up at Gate City Bank, and in addition donations can be made online via THIS LINK.

Our hearts ache for his family and all that loved him, and we send so much love to all who are hurting.

MuchLove –
Jamie & Matthew

The Barnes Family

Hooray! It’s Kirsty!

How about just one more for the night, or the morning, depending on what your perception of wake and sleep time is.  And how about it’s Kirsty!  And how about you peeps out there reading this are super excited because Kirsty is totally awesome and looking at her picture below these words you know that I’m just not filling you full of some sort of jive talk and I’m telling you the straight story.

What do you think about all of that?  You think it’s a pretty good deal?  Well, I think it’s a great deal!  And it is a great deal because anybody that knows Kirsty also knows just how awesome she is – and we found out firsthand when we had the goodlygreat opportunity to work with her during a time that was not that long ago because there is snow in the picture?  Time.  It mystifies me.  Going on with the story…Kirsty was completely awesome to work with as well and our time together was far too short & sweet.  But we will not be sad about this because we will always have the memories.  And the pictures.  Because that’s what we do.

But enough of all this jibber-jabber, it’s time for us to give MuchLove to Kirsty for stopping by the o&j and doing the senior picture thing, and to all you goodlygreat peeps of blog getting ready to make this another wonderful day – Enjoy!

Kirsty!

Deri’Ann. Picture. Blog. Awesome. Yay!

I think the title of this post pretty much sums up everything that I really need to say about what’s gonna be going on here, but I would be remiss if I didn’t add another couple hundred of non-sensical words to the mix.  Some people wonder why I feel the need to add these words (pretty much everyone else at the o&j) – but my reply is always ‘IT’S MY BLOG AND I’LL DO WHAT I WANT TO’ which I will admit when looking at it like that makes it seem like I’m kind of having a hissy fit and yeah, I probably am but whatevs.  It’s how I am.  Deal.  Back to what we are here today for.

And that’s a samplesnap from the senior portrait session of the oh-so-lovely & wonderful Deri’Ann!  We had an absolutely wonderful time working with her and the results of this wonderfulness can be found in the samplesnap below.  But wait!  Before you go all running off to look at the pic, we have to give MuchLove to Deri’Ann for stopping by the o&j and for letting us have some of her sweet & precious time.  And to all you good peeps out there in Blogville wishing and waiting for summer to come around – Enjoy!

Deri'Ann!

James Time.

Some people operate on Central Standard, some people do Mountain, some people do Greenwich Mean.  Right now, we’re doing James Time.  Because that’s the only time that matters in this wild and crazy world that we live in.  So just put your clocks away and focus on what I’m about to lay down.

James stopped by the o to the j on a day that I could say was the other day but I would be lying if I did say that unless your definition of ‘the other day’ is pretty loose and could encompass a time that could be anything from literally the other day all the way to a few months ago, but we’ll just stick with the other day.  He stopped by for the senior pics.  And we took the seniorpictosnaps he was in need of.  And the job was well done – and this was because James was awesome to work with.  Straight up, my babies…straight up.

But we need to put all of these words away and just send James MuchLove and thank him for deciding to stop by the o&j, and to all you happy and glowing people out there in front of your computers looking at the happy picture below – Enjoy!

James!

Here We Go…It’s Taylor!

Round and round the Otis & James Caravan of Love turns, and this time we are lucky enough to feature the every lovely Taylor!  Here’s the story.  Taylor needed some senior pictures taken, and that’s kind of what we do.  I mean, we other things too like have families, raise daschunds, write in our journals, order Taco Johns…yeah…that’s basically what else we do, but we definitely take a whole bunch of senior pictosnaps, which is why it was awesome that Taylor decided to stop by our studio because I don’t know where this sentence is going but I know that you get the drift.

Moving on, Taylor was completely awesome to work with (duh) – and our time together was all too short & sweet!  We wish that she could be with us every day of the week, but that would probably cost a lot of money and she would probably get bored with us (although we do like Taco Johns so that’s something), so we will just have the pics from our time together to remind us of the awesomeness.  Wow.  That was a sentence.  So Taylor, we send you MuchLove and thank you for letting us be a little part of your senior year, and to all of you good people out there in Land of Blog just keepin’ it real – Enjoy!

Taylor!

McCormick. Straight Up.

Let’s continue this SeniorSunday (or for those of you that are too kook for skool #seniorsunday) thing with a post about a man that I like to call McCormick.  And maybe there are others out there that call him this same name too.  In fact, I’m almost positive that there are.  Like his friends.  His family.  Schoolmates (is that a word still?  It seems so 19th century) – whatever the case may be, I do believe that they may call him this same name too.  So I’m not alone in this notion of calling him that.

So, McCormick stops by the otis to the james and he needs some pictures taken because he’s graduating from high school and needs to have some of those pics that the seniors take because time has flown by and he’s practically in college and everyone is like ‘what the heck happened it seems just like yesterday when he was starting kindergarten’ or whatever it is that they are thinking.  But I’m not here to delve into the psyche of what people may or may not be thinking, I’m just here to tell you that we wound up taking this senior pics and the rest is up to you.

But not only did we take his senior pics, but we had a great time doing so – and it’s all thanks to McCormick.  So we’d like to take a moment to send MuchLove to him for letting us be a little part of his senior year, and to all of you good peeps out there in Land of Blog just doing whatever it is that you do – Enjoy!

McCormick!

Here We Go. It’s Terence!

Seems like the only time I’m ever putting anything up here is for a good ol’ Senior Sunday type of thing, but whatever.  It works.  And this time we’re getting the job done with the one & only Terence!  There was this day that wasn’t all that long ago (in reality it probably was a long time ago but time…what does it really mean man?) – philosophical questions about time and space aside, there was this time and there was this Terence and there was this photog. named Jamie and there were many happy pictures taken.

But the reason for such happy pictures was not because of Jamie or camera or anything else like that.  No no no.  The reason for happy pictures was because Terence was completely awesome to work with, and he made our time together totally and completely awesome.  But I don’t need these words to tell you that, all I gotta do is have you look at the happy picture below.  But wait!  Before you do that we need to send MuchLove to Terence for stopping by FunCenter and letting us take some snaps, and to all my good peeps out there in Land of Blog – Enjoy!

Terence!

Kimani!

What would a SeniorSunday be without Kimani?  Well…I don’t really have an answer for that.  It’s just kind of one of those questions that I ask and I don’t really expect an answer back because this is a computer screen that I am looking at and unless something magical happens within the next couple of minutes and it suddenly comes to life I don’t think that I’m going to get a response back from it.  Computers.  They cray.

Moving on.  You know what’s good?  The samplesnap of Kimani below these words.  I’m not joking around here.  It’s the real deal.  BUT DONT’ LOOK AT IT YET.  Because we need to do the thing where we tell you that there was a time/there was a place/Kimani was there/we had camera/pure goodness occured and then we need to send Kimani MuchLove for letting us be a part of his senior year, and then we need to tell all you perfect people out there in front of your computer screens just waiting for something new to look at to – Enjoy!

Kimani!

More Good. Now With Marissa!

I’ve just given up on English as the native language for these blog posts, so just stick with me and we’ll go places, ok?  Great.  Now that we’ve got that out of the way, it’s time for us to take another small trip down memory lane to a place and a time when the otis james photo center (alternate name/ultimately rejected) opened the doors and into our lives strolled the one & only Marissa!

Now, she wasn’t here to sell us girl scout cookies or even a set of knives, nope…none of that.  She was here to have some totally awesome seniorpictosnaps taken!  And thank goodness because we don’t need another set of knives, although I will admit that the Girl Scout cookies do sound good but I digress.  Marissa was awesome to work with, but you don’t need any of these words to tell you that, all you have to do is look at the picture below these words to know that I’m not joshing you!  No offense to Josh.  But wait!  Before you move your eyes down the page and look at the goodness that awaits, we need to send MuchLove to Marissa for stopping by and spending some of her time with us (time is money after all) and for all you good peeps out there in Blogville waiting for spring to…spring? – Enjoy!

Marissa!
