  • 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.

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.

Congratulations Cody & Ashley!

This collage of photos was from a recent photo session with a special couple. While she was serving in Kuwait for a year, she contacted me to see if I could do some family and couples’ photos upon her return. What I didn’t know at the time was that they’ve been keeping a secret over more than a year now. So, being asked to do their “Reveal” session was extra special. A family photo session with his beautiful 3-year-old daughter is currently being scheduled. Thank you for your service to our country, U.S. Army Specialist, Ashley Wilburn! Congrats you two!

Spring Flowers & Plants in Oklahoma!

Photography feeds my soul. It is my creative and therapeutic outlet, and what I love best in terms of reconnecting with myself and with our creator. With all of the rain, art shows and photo shoots, I haven’t had many opportunities lately to get out with my camera and just enjoy the moments. So, in between rain showers a couple of weeks ago, I grabbed a macro lens and walked out of my backdoor. This is what I saw. Any of these can be put on canvas, metal or photo paper and hung in your home or office. They also make unique gifts. All are signed. Do you have a favorite?

Sheryl McLain - Oh my goodness! You made my (very long) day. If you all ever want to come over and look at some of what you saw on the big screen on canvas and metal…any friend of Pastor Mark’s and Acts2 is a friend of mine. Seriously. I have an Instagram, FB Photography and this website (which is the best place for most of my things. Thanks so much for reaching out. As of right now, my next “showing” may be a private open house. Email me directly, or “Like” my FB Photo page and I’ll be sure to invite you to that. Thank you SO much.

douglas parker - Hello..
I was fortunate enough to be at our Act2 service yesterday and Pastor Mark had several of your beautiful works displayed on screen during the service. I love the peacefulness of each picture.
I look forward to following you on facebook and would love to know when you have a showing. We live off Covell directly east of the church 3/4 mile. Once again your work is awesome!
