  • 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.

Beautiful, Rural Minnesota!

Last week, my husband and I took a road trip to Minnesota for a special wedding. We stayed in a 120-year-old farm house which was set on several acres of orchards and vineyards, and included a winery. Around the property were acres of corn fields. I have never seen so much corn in my entire life. The setting was heaven. We also explored a couple of beautiful nature preserves, and an arboretum with a stunning and vast variety of flowers. Here is a set of some of the landscapes from the trip. My next post will feature macro/close-ups of many of the flowers and fresh fruits we saw. Any of these images can be converted into art for your home or office. They also make great gifts. All art is signed and ready to hang. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or need pricing or other information.

Alaska Glacier Art

During our September photo tour of Alaska, we flew over the Knik Glacier in a helicopter (doors off) on the way to the Colony Glacier. Here are some photos taken from the helicopter on our ride to and from the Colony Glacier. Many of these would look great as groupings. Contact me if you are interested in ordering any of these for your home or office. You can email me through this website, or directly at Enjoy browsing!

Oklahoma! The Waving Wheat Can Sure Smell Sweet…

In late May, my husband and drove out to a wheat field about 40 minutes away, where we remained until after the sun set. Oklahoma has many wide open spaces, and we enjoy stunning sunsets quite often. Here are some images from that evening. Any of these can be custom ordered and converted into art for your home or office. These will look especially good on stretched canvas. All art is signed and ready to hang. If you have questions, or if I can help you find a piece that will be meaningful to you, contact me through the website or email me directly at Enjoy browsing!

Oklahomans Help Local Charities During Covid-19 Quarantine

During the Covid-19 quarantine, I looked for ways I could help out while serving some of our community’s most vulnerable citizens. In exchange for contributions to local charities (i.e. Edmond Mobile Meals, the Regional Food Bank, Infant Crisis Services, etc.), I donated my time and photography skills to capture families on their front porches or yards. Social distancing was exercised using a telephoto lens. From early March through Mother’s Day weekend, a total of 46 families were photographed with an estimated $2500 in contributions to local charities. A special thanks to my church, Acts 2 United Methodist Church and its members, who jumped onboard immediately to help out. Another thanks to my friends Kay and Mark Harsha who organized front porch Photos for their northwest OKC neighborhood; that evening we photographed 12 different families from Warwick Estates. Thanks to everyone shown here from Warwick Estates, my neighborhood and many other neighborhoods who participated and donated to make a difference for our community members in need.
