  • 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.

Edmond Husky Senior Photo Shoot

Yesterday evening, I met this Edmond Husky senior and his mom for his senior photo shoot. I have known this young man since he was in the third grade. And, he is even nicer than he is handsome. As with any shoot, I want it to reflect the senior and what is important to him or her. My goal is to create images that both the senior and the parents love. He chose the location, which is his favorite place at the lake. Secondly, two things he wanted to highlight were his pick-up truck and his new tattoo – both very special to him. We also got some special pictures of him with his mom and re-created a childhood photo of the two. Super sweet and his idea. Here are a few of the images from last night. I have more to edit, but these are among my favorites. What an amazing young man he has grown-up to be. It was a privilege and very humbling to be the photographer he chose to capture these moments.

Beautiful Camogli – Italian Riviera

During our trip to Italy in May 2016, after leaving the Cinque Terre, we headed north, to another area in the Ligurian region along the Italian Riviera. Camogli is a beautiful fishing village west of Portofino, in the province of Genoa. Here are a few images from our 3-day stay in this picturesque village.  Feel free to “share” this post with your friends via email.

The Beautiful Cinque Terre, Italy

One month ago today, we left for Italy. We spent a day in Pisa, then took a train to the Cinque Terre area of Italy. Cinque Terre, means five lands in Italian. While there, we visited 4 of the 5 village in this beautiful Liguria region along the Mediterrean Sea. We stayed in Monterosso al Mare and took a boat to Vernazza and a train to the other towns of Manarola and Riomaggiore. We wanted to see Corniglia, but the rain and time didn’t permit. What a beautiful area of Italy. Here are a few photos taken during our time there. All of these images are available for sale and can be custom sized, signed and printed on photo paper, canvas, metal or glass. My favorite texture for these is canvas because the effect really makes the colors pop. If you have questions, feel free to contact me via by emailing me through my website. You can also find me on Facebook at Sheryl McLain Photography. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
