J & E Easter Session | Tulsa Children’s Photographer

Sweet, sweet J & E came to see me a few weeks ago for their Easter pictures.  These sisters are so full of life and energy!  Little E was a fireball all in herself!


If you’re thinking about booking a family session, there’s a little bonus for the month of May!!  All May bookings will receive a free 8×10 canvas!!  Only a few spots left, so if you’re thinking about it, now’s the time!



Haven | Tulsa Senior Photographer

Haven (awesome name, right??)  is the kinda girl you instantly fall in love with.  She’s the girl you want to be friends with.  All the guys adore and parents equally love.

I was so excited to photograph this pretty girl after the fun I had with her older sister a few years ago.  Hannah was a treat all in herself.  You can find a before and after I featured of her over here.

In a few short weeks Haven  is graduating from Broken Arrow High School and will attend my Alma Mater in the fall: Oklahoma State University.

Love this girl to pieces!!

Here is part I of her Senior session.  We’re shooting the second half this week so stay tuned for more of this pretty girl.

One person shouldn’t have this much gorgeousness.  Yes.  Making up words is part of my  job description.

She decided to get a little sassy and channel her inner Gatsby for a few shots.  LOVE.

I’m a funny gal, what can I say??  Sometimes they’re laughing at you.  Sometimes they’re laughing with you.

Gorgeous.  I can’t even describe it.  Just plain awesome, Haven!



3 keys when decorating your mantle : Tulsa Photographer

You’ve bought your dream home.  You’ve been in it a few weeks, maybe months (heck, maybe a year!) and you’re still not sold on your mantle display. You’ve tried the minimalist approach.  Not your style.  You’ve pulled in old pieces from around the house.  Still not diggin it.  Don’t worry.  Everyone’s been there.  This is the statement area of your room and you want it to look perfect and draw attention (in the right way).  

I know I struggle with my mantle all. the. time. so I perused the interwebs for all you lovelies and here’s what I came up with.

Here are 3 keys to keep in mind when decorating your mantle.

1. Start with the art. One large piece, about two-thirds the size of the mantel itself to make a statement.  From there layer on additional elements in smaller sizes, ideally in complementary colors or themes, while remembering the rule of thirds.

2.  Follow the rule of three. A trio of objects gathered on the mantel in sizes large, medium and small will look fantastic and is pleasing to the eye.


3.  If you don’t have one impressive large piece to hang, a small gallery wall of three or more medium size pictures will act as your statement piece.   Try to mix up the orientation of each piece by using a canvas cluster for added interest. Don’t forget to add two more elements to complete your trio; arranged closely together, the items count as one large piece.



Pinterest is a beautiful thing. Lemmetellyou.  I found these 3 gems through Pinterest to help give you all a visual of what I found in my research.  Give a big Thank You to pinterest!!



Senior Ambassadors | Tulsa Senior Photographer

Are you an outgoing, stylish Senior graduating in 2015?? If so, you may be one of my next ALP Senior Ambassadors!

Every year a select few guys and girls are chosen to be ALP Ambassadors at their school.  As an Ambassador not only do you receive an awesome session (with $50 retainer), but you get so much swag if you win.  You get gift certificates to give to your friends so they can save on Senior pics, and just by being you and talking about your Senior pics, if you get 10 of your friends to book you could win canvas credit or an iPad mini.

If you think you’ve got what I’m looking for shoot me an email through the contact form with a picture of yourself and your interests/what you’re involved in at your school.
