  • 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.

Lake Brienz, Switzerland

Last year, after staying in Lucerne (Luzern), Switzerland, we headed to the Bernese Oberland area where we parked our car and headed via a cable car tram into the Swiss Alps for a few days. On the way to Murren, we were told by a local photographer to stop in Brienz and spend a bit of time. We did and actually had lunch across from this beautiful, turquoise-colored lake. Here are a few images. If you’d like to have any of these images signed and put on canvas, photo paper or metal, contact me via the website or at Thanks so much.

Picturesque Little Swiss Villages

While staying in Murren, Switzerland, last summer, my husband and I hiked to the close little village of Gimmelwald, and also found our way to Lauterbrunnen, with it’s iconic waterfall and quaint little church, and Trummelbach Falls. Photographing in and around these tiny villages was on my “must have” list of images before leaving the Bernese Oberland area. This was one of the prettiest and most peaceful areas we have ever been….and we have traveled a lot. If you would like to own a signed canvas, print or piece of art on metal, contact me via this site, or by email at: They also make great gifts.

Hiking Switzerland – Like Walking Through a Fairy Tale

Last summer, my husband and I visited several places in and around the Bernese Oberland area of Switzerland. A highlight of our trip was spent in the car-free village of Murren, high in the Swiss Alps. The vistas were stunning. On two different days, we left our Bed & Breakfast, took the cog train up to the top and hiked down via the North Face and Mountain View hikes. Both of us felt as if we were walking through a colorful fairy tale. It was stunningly beautiful in every direction. Here are a few images from these two hikes, which started and ended in Murren.

Congratulations to this beautiful Jayna!

What a fun photo session I recently had with this beautiful and smart high school senior. It was one of the most enjoyable sessions ever. Her smile was infectious and her beauty shines through. Take a look at just a few of the samples from our evening in downtown OKC. Seniors and their sessions are to be celebrated! Congratulations, Jayna. You are going to change our world in a big way!

Celebrating Family

Last month, during their daughter’s high school senior photo session, I grabbed a few shots of younger brothers, along with mom and dad. After all, you can’t celebrate the senior without also celebrating those who love her and have supported her achievements. What a great family and one of my most enjoyable senior/family photo shoots. I will also post some (of just her) from her senior session.
