  • 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 Lake Hefner

Recently, I’ve been able to capture some stunning sunsets at Lake Hefner here in Oklahoma City. I stayed around after the sun went down and caught some lights reflecting on the calm water. Here are a few from February and March 2020. Any of these can be converted into art for your home or office. They make wonderful, unique gifts. Feel free to email me if you have any questions

White Pelican Migration

This past fall, we had an opportunity to again witness the amazing white pelican migration here in Oklahoma, as they make their way south for the winter. Here are some images of this fall, as well as some from three years ago, when I saw this for the first time. These were all taken at Grand Lake, near Afton, Oklahoma. Any of these can be converted into art and ready to hang in your home or office. All art is signed by me and is truly unique and one of a kind.

Bucket List Trip to Bora Bora

In October, my husband and I spent a week in this tropical paradise in French Polynesia, an 8 hour flight from San Francisco. We have been to the tropics many times, but not here, and not in this part of the globe. I can’t say enough about the lovely people, the white sand, the turquoise water, the over-the-water bungalows, and the delicious fresh seafood and Polynesian fare. We may have to return. Here are a few of my images, all of which can be converted into signed art for your home or office. Contact me if I can help you with a slice of paradise. You can contact me through the website here, or directly at

Matira Beach – Bora Bora

While in the tropical paradise of Bora Bora in late October, my husband and I took a boat and bus over to the gorgeous Matira Beach on the main island. We had read somewhere that it is ranked among the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world –  and we could see why. We spent a few hours taking in the incredible views of white sand and crystal clear water. The turquoise water turned to strips of cobalt blue in the distance. Truly, it was heaven on earth for the entire week. Looking at these images takes me back, and I can hear the waves and feel the white powdery sand beneath my feet. Re-living and anticipating trips, especially during the cold winter months, keeps me inspired and makes my heart happy. Any of these would look stunning on stretched canvas, metal or metallic photo print paper. If I can help you with photography art for your home or office, you can directly contact me via my website or directly at Thanks so much for enjoying my images. I sure enjoy capturing the earth’s beauty and re-living these moments.
