I specialize in candid family, child and high school senior portraits in the Oklahoma City and the Dallas metroplexes. I also photograph events, sports and headshots.

Session are booked approximately 1.5 -2 hours prior to sunset or within an hour of sunrise.

I can most definitely help you with that! After ten years of photographing clients, I have learned what photographs well and what doesn't. Upon booking a session with me, I am happy to connect you with some tried and true styling tips. I will also help you with your specific outfit choices.

I LOVE to travel with clients! I have been across the globe photographing some amazing families.

Click on my travel portfolio to see images from the beach, Canada, Bali, New York City and more!

Photo sessions are $950 plus state sales tax. This includes at least 65+ digital images, each carefully hand edited by Missy.

Once we met Missy I saw that she was laid back and went along with whatever our two year old wanted. You can tell she just loves kids and her job. Our pictures are a treasure." - The Hawkins Family
