  • About Me

    My passion for photography began several years ago, when I purchased my first 35 mm (film) camera. Technology has changed significantly over the years, but what hasn't changed is my love of capturing meaningful moments. The sun rising over the Grand Canyon, or setting over Grand Lake, the day a child is born, the adoring looks of a newly engaged couple, a special anniversary -- capturing these moments and recording the images brings me great joy.

    My goal is to make your photo shoot great fun and to provide you with images that you will cherish for many years. Any of the landscape images on my website, Facebook page, or Instagram can be custom-sized for your home or office. Contact me for prices and for information about upcoming art shows/sales.

    There is beauty all around us and in every individual. Capturing this beauty and reflecting the personality of each person I photograph is very rewarding. I provide on-location portrait shoots in and around the state of Oklahoma, and in my studio in Edmond. I look forward to working with you.

Siesta Key Beach Escape

Many of us sought a Covid respite by heading to the beach! Along with everyone else, I’ve missed travel so much. In May, my husband and I headed to Florida for some R & R and beach therapy, which included long walks along the beach, and as many sunsets as we could find. This was our first time to Siesta Key and I can see why it’s ranked the #1 most beautiful beach in the US. It was stunningly beautiful with powdery white sand and miles of walking opportunities. I knew I had to photograph the iconic lifeguard stands and, as a bonus, I was asked by a couple of lifeguards to take their photo. Once I got back home to Oklahoma, I sent them three of my favorites. Fun times! Any of these images can easily be converted into art for your home or office. Contact me for information and prices.

Beautiful Idaho and Wyoming

In June, my husband joined me for a trip and photo workshop in and around the Jackson, Wyoming, area. We started and ended in Idaho, and sought out iconic scenes at sunrise and sunset in both Idaho and in Jackson, Wyoming. The historic and restored Moulton Barn on Mormon Row (included here) was among my top three of “must have” images in Jackson. It is said to be the most photographed barn in the world. The other barn lived across the street from where we stayed in Victor, Idaho, at the beginning of our trip and it also needed to be photographed. We visited Yellowstone National Park twice. My first time there! The geothermal areas of Yellowstone deserved a separate post. But, Lewis Falls within the Park, and Yellowstone Lake at sunset are included here. As is the case with any of the images you see here, on Facebook or Instagram, they can be converted into art for your home or office. Contact me if you have any questions. All works are signed and ready to hang.

Yellowstone’s Stunning Geothermal Areas

In June of this year, my husband joined me for a photo workshop in and around the Jackson Hole and Yellowstone National Park area. We saw the gorgeous Tetons and several iconic views at sunrise and sunset. This post features the geothermal areas of Yellowstone. Several of these would look absolutely stunning on metal but all would also look great on canvas. The colorful Grand Prismatic Spring, the third largest spring in the world, was my favorite of all of the geothermal areas. Do you have a favorite? I’d love to hear from you. If you have any questions about custom orders, please contact me through the website or my Facebook or Instagram.

Beautiful Texas Bluebonnets!

Last month I returned to Texas to photograph the bluebonnets. I had been once before, seven years ago. While the blooms during my first trip were much more glorious, I was still able to capture blooms with a wonderful backdrop of rustic fences and buildings. It was definitely worth the trip. An extra bonus and new experience was capturing cattle grazing and laying among the blooms. A real treat! Any of these would look fantastic on stretched canvas, which adds texture and character to the images. I also have several bluebonnet canvases in inventory.  Contact me if you are interested.
