You know those opportunities that come out of no where and it seems like it is too good to be true but then it all come together and it is just as good as it seem to be? This wedding is one of those opportunities for this momma. A few months ago I finally decided […]

A Southern Affair at Sweetbelle Farms

June 20, 2019

It’s an understatement to say that I started doing things a little backwards in the photography world. I sort of just fell into weddings when a friend of mine called last minute and needed a wedding photographer because her original photographer was not the best fit. I shot my first wedding 18 months ago. I […]

Cheap Father’s Day Gift

May 17, 2019

Location, location, location… One of the things I stress as a photographer is location. It is actually one of the first things I discus with my clients and we revisit this throughout the weeks or months leading up to their session. I don’t stress this because I want to have the most amazing location in […]

Choosing Your Photo Session Location + Oklahoma Senior Photographer

May 12, 2019

Senior year is such a unique time I have come to believe- or- it can be at least. My senior year was filled with frustrations, confusions, and moving half way through it– not exactly ideal or fun but that’s what I was dealt and I could never regret it. As I have begun to work […]

Romantic Sunset Couples Session {Norman, Oklahoma}

April 14, 2019

One of the comments I hear SO often from my couples is “we haven’t gotten pictures taken since our wedding”. I get it– life is hectic, we get busy, and before we know it YEARS have passed since we took a moment to slow down and capture the love a couple shares. Trust me, I […]

A Romantic Garden Couples Session + Gilcrease Museum + Tulsa, Oklahoma

March 23, 2019

Being a small business owner is not exactly the easiest thing in the world. I wasn’t a small business owner before I have kids but I know how difficult it had been to break into a market that seems so saturated while not having the time, money, or energy into it that I would like […]

Community Over Competition — Myriad Gardens Photoshoot

March 12, 2019

You know, for being a farmers daughter I really am not that good at growing plants. I’ve even manages to stunt the growth or kill the ones that supposedly live with “3 ice cubes a week”! Give me cows all day long but tomatoes and lettuce, sheesh!!! To give you a little sense of my […]

Spring Gardening — Gardening with Children

As a photographer I get the opportunity to work with people from all over the United States. In February of 2017 I was able to shoot a very special maternity session for a couple from Idaho who are very dear to my heart. The roller coaster of blessing and trials in order for this couple […]
