  • 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.

My Landscapes Featured by Grand Canyon National Geographic Visitor Center

Last week, staff at the Grand Canyon National Geographic Visitor Center saw a photo I had posted on Instragram (sherylmclainphotography). They asked me if they could share it on their social media feeds and then encouraged me to submit a few more, along with some tips and information about our trip to the Grand Canyon last summer. They posted the photos and information today.

Click on the photo above to link to the article and other photos.

Needless to say, I’m so excited, flattered and humbled.

Sweet Maggie

Before she was born, I got to take photos of Maggie’s parents, as they eagerly awaited her arrival. I took family photos when she was a couple of months old. Now, she is a little older than one. She is quiet and very curious. Her mom says she isn’t known for smiling a lot, but I’m told these images captured the “real” Maggie. She is a precious little girl with gorgeous blue eyes. In one of Maggie’s photos, our family dog came in to say hello.

Baby’s Birth Day

WOW! What an amazing privilege it was to spend a full day with parents and family members, awaiting the arrival of a child. The word “awesome” is often overused, but not when referring to such a joyous event. Being there to celebrate the addition of this precious new life into the world — ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!
