  • 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.

Senior of 2018

Some international trips, an art show, and many other fun things have caused me to delay posting these senior sessions, which were done a few months ago. This senior wanted something different. So we customized two sessions on two different evenings to reflect her personality an style. Here are a few of the many of the digital images she received on DVD from session #1. I really enjoy spending time with seniors and customizing their sessions to capture who they are, while celebrating this wonderful milestone. If you want to book a senior session, contact me and we will get it on the calendar.

Western Oklahoma “Ruby Ranch”

I was recently asked if I’d be willing to photograph a special piece of land in western Oklahoma for a family I’ve known for more than 30 years. The most immediate goal was to take some of the images and place them on stretched canvases as a surprise for their parents’ 65th wedding anniversary. Of course, I was excited to see the land and to have a part in the surprise gifts. We spent several hours, until after sunset, exploring and photographing this beautiful place.

This ranch has been in the family for about 65 years, and is one of their favorite places to spend time together. While cattle graze nearby, the kids can jet ski, go tubing in the lake and ride four-wheelers. A favorite pastime for all is fishing from the dock, or just sitting on the porch taking in the nature beauty. Many Thanksgivings have been spent at the ranch, and it’s home to their annual 4th of July family reunions, as well as many other gatherings of family and friends.

It was an honor to visit the ranch and to capture these special views, which can be enjoyed as art for years to come.

If you have a special place you’d like to have photographed and created into art, please contact me. I would love to do this for you.
