When I entered Jared and Laurie's home, Jared was rocking his newborn daughter, Remy, while Laurie finished getting ready for our session. I recognized something very familiar in both of their eyes—they had been transformed by her birth.Read More
I've known Kaela and Landon for a few years and have watched Marley's story unfold via Facebook for the past few months. We have been planning an in-home lifestyle session for some time now, but Marley has needed immediate health care for longer than planned, so I wanted to come and document this important, special part of their journey, too. When I first saw Marley in person, I felt an overwhelming sense of adoration and awe.Read More
If you know me, you know I love horses. I grew up around them and I've been horse crazy since I could walk! So when Brittany contacted me for a session with her horse, Sandman, I was instantly excited and couldn't wait to get started.
We had to chase the elusive sun, but I think we still captured that fresh, autumn glow!
What a sweet horse! He took incredible care of his best friend, who was nervous to ride bareback AND in a dress. Brittany, you did amazing, and I am so glad you chose me to capture the essence of your bond with your sweet boy!
PS: Check out the very last photo for a hilarious blooper. Brittany was a bit nervous the first time I asked her to lope, and she looked like someone straight out of Braveheart! I even added a sword for hilarious effect. ;)Read More
Is this little boy not the sweetest babe you've ever seen?! I had so much fun with this session. Thank you, Seshie family, for allowing me into your home! Baby Ethan is absolutely beautiful!Read More
One of my favorite things about lifestyle photography is that it's so versatile. I love going into hospitals to document a newborn when they are less than 48 hours old! There's a "newness" to them that you can't quite capture at their newborn session; the difference a week can make is huge!
At this session, I got to snuggle this sweet babe before taking her photos. She was so tiny! I can't even remember my daughter being that small! I was even able to offer a tip that helped soothe her: a white noise app on my phone. It always worked for my daughter too. :)
Here are a few of my favorite shots from her session!Read More
Alia and Jacob are one of the sweetest couples I've ever had the privilege of meeting! Alia wanted a sunset session, but her time in Oklahoma City was limited and the forecast showed rain this particular evening. So rather than risking it, we decided to shoot earlier and avoid the rain (but my goodness, was it hot outside!).
I have to say, though, that the lighting worked in our favor and turned out beautifully. Their session was at Bluff Creek Park, where we utilized different trails and paths. The trees provided just the right amount of shade while still filtering light through. I instructed them to do a lot of silly things that made them laugh, and the end result was totally worth it!
Congratulations, Alia and Jacob, and your engagement. I wish you all the best in your coming marriage!Read More
As the wife of an OCPD officer, it is always SUCH a huge honor when I get to photograph police families and couples. Jared recently joined OCPD and Laurie asked me to document this special time in their lives. Congratulations you two, and welcome to the family!Read More
When Leah contacted me and told me she and her husband, Michael, were needing a mini session, I was happy to work with them. I learned that their beloved dog, Miles, had been diagnosed with liver cancer and they only had a few remaining weeks with him. This session was an emotional one. Miles is such a sweet, funny, enthusiastic guy and just looking at him, you'd never know he was sick! I can tell he has brought his humans unspeakable joy throughout his thirteen years in this world. Thank you, Leah and Michael, for trusting me with this special session.Read More
Oh. My. Gosh. I had SO much fun with this couple! Their dynamic is so special and endearing. They know how to be silly and laugh, and you can also see how deeply they love each other. We started our session at the Devon Tower in Oklahoma City, and then meandered over to the Myriad Botanical Gardens for some shots with gorgeous tropical backdrops and the Crystal Bridge. After that, we went to Coffee Slingers and found the only open spot near a window (winning!), and enjoyed some delicious drinks. Finally, we went to the Sheraton parking garage for some rooftop JURASSIC PARK (!!!) shots with the city skyline in the background, just as it started to rain. It. Was. Awesome.
I will be photographing their wedding next April and I couldn't be more excited! Thank you for trusting me with capturing these memories for you, Heidi and Jeff!
PS - I'm still laughing about the fact that you BOTH thought I said my book was called "Noodle."

Friday was the PERFECT day for an afternoon photo session. I loved capturing this little family and the love they share for their sweet boy!Read More
This session was SO much fun! I really enjoyed capturing the bond between Kirsten and her horse, Sadie. Such a sweet partnership. Congrats, Kirsten, on making it through high school! :)Read More
Cooper was born very shortly after my daughter, Evelyn, (and Shanna works with my husband), so I have had a blast getting to know this family over the past several weeks! This session was SO much fun! I've had the pleasure of enjoying time in this hot tub with my baby girl, so when Shanna said she wanted photos of their family doing the same thing (which is also their nightly routine), I was immediately on board! Such a sweet, funny, warm family!Read More
There is something so special about capturing the precious moments of a momma nursing her baby. It makes me feel so honored—like I'm allowed to immortalize their sacred bond, and that's something I will never take lightly. This session was no different. I absolutely adored seeing the love in this little man's eyes as he gazed at his mother. There was such a joyful atmosphere in the room and I couldn't stop grinning.Read More
This little guy has such a charming smile! I never know what to expect with 2-year-olds, but the very moment I lifted my camera, he sported a huge grin and said, "Cheese!" with such adorable enthusiasm. I'm so blessed to be this family's photographer!Read More
When I first arrived at the Daft residence, miss Bailey Mae was wide awake and perfectly content to watch me and my camera while mom tried to lull her to sleep. After a couple of feedings and a diaper change, she was a happy camper and quickly drifted into the ideal newborn sleep that every photographer loves. You know—the kind where you can position and reposition them and the most they do is frown. :)Read More
