  • 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.

Taos Pueblo

I have had two opportunities to visit this sacred and historical ground. Each time I have been, the feeling of a holy and sacred place is evident. My first visit to the pueblo was in November 2012, less than a month after my mother passed away. I recall longing for some alone time, with just me, the road, and my camera. The day was dreary and overcast, like my mood. Interestingly, as I look back on these two sets of images, I can identify the set taken during one of the most sad and reflective times in my life. Can you? A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Taos Pueblo belongs to the Native American tribe of Puebloan people. Located about 1 mile north of Taos, New Mexico, the pueblos are considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhibited communities in the U.S.

Jekyll Island, Georgia

A couple of years ago, my husband and I made a brief stop on Jekyll Island, part of Georgia’s golden isles. We walked from the fishing pier to driftwood beach and back. Here are a few of the images captured during our time there.  I can’t wait to return and see the sea turtles and so much more that this beautiful place has to offer. If you like my images, feel free to share this album/link with friends. Any of these can be custom sized and printed on photo paper, stretched canvas or metal. They make great art for homes or offices.

A Trip Across the Pond

In May of this past year, I had the rare treat of traveling with both of my sons to London. While there, we saw the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, walked through Hyde Park, went all over London on the metro/subway system and I got to photograph one evening with a lovely local photographer who is actually from Scotland. Here are a few images of London through my lens. Any of these can be created into signed art for your home or office.
