I am an Edmond, Oklahoma photographer that specializes in family, child, high school senior and vacation portraits.
I dusted off my camera skills as a new mother over a decade ago, determined to freeze time just a little. I didn't want forced, posed photos. I wanted to look at an image I had taken and remember the sound of my children's genuine giggles and playfulness in the moment. The pictures I hang on my walls are just that - a true memory for our family. Not forced, bribed, or bargained for.
Does that sound impossible to you? It's not! I promise! You see, before I became a professional photographer I was an elementary school teacher. I learned to think on my feet quickly with kids, yet also appreciate the moment. My photography sessions are a lot of playing around, movement, and fun. Whether it's a spirited two-year-old or a graduating eighteen-year-old, getting to know my clients through laughter and talking is my jam.
I'd love to you meet you & photograph your family just as I photograph mine. In the meantime, here are a few of my own family's images that are extra special to me.... not forced, but in the moment & filled with love.
