Rt 66 travels through 8 states total and connects Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California! Tulsa and several small towns around it were a big part of the Mother Road. Today, Rt 66 is still an amazing road trip full of adventure and nostalgia. Book your senior session Today!route66ok

Oklahoma – Catoosa -Rt66

Welcome to OKLAHOMA, USA

Welcome to OKLAHOMA: You are currently visiting Catoosa's historic site on RT 66
Welcome to OKLAHOMA: You are currently visiting Catoosa’s historic site on RT 66

Catoosa’s historic site was once an alligator farm…it was also once a swimming hole and water park where children celebrated SUMMER! If you have ever traveled RT 66 then you have passed this beautiful place in Oklahoma’s heritage and history.

They now have a gift store and take donations as the local historic site is kept up and run by the historical society (last I heard)….let us know if you’d like your next shoot to be at a cool historic site in Catoosa, OK.

Where will adventure take YOU next??

Back To School: 2015-16

Back-To-School season is here. Everyone has passed that very busy “first day” and all the photos and shopping trips. Now you can relax and look forward to open house night and fall school photos.

Senior Portraits, Holiday Family Photos, Themed Sessions all are popular in the Fall season.
Senior Portraits, Holiday Family Photos, Themed Sessions all are popular in the Fall season.

Back to school also begins the holiday season activities for fall. The weather is cooling off and everyone is getting excited to see the heatwave that hits us during Oklahoma Summers pass by to be dreamed back up during the freezing spells that winter brings. But I am getting too far ahead.

Two things to consider right now:

  1. Fall Photos: These come in two varieties.
    1. The first is that family portrait everyone sends out with (or for) the Christmas Card season. Holiday portraits take time and energy to put together for a lot of families because this season is so busy. Back to school is over and then comes PTA; then Halloween planning; thanksgiving baking and Christmas cards (or holiday cards depending on your celebration/event); and then the yuletide shopping.
    2. The second is Senior Portraits. Senior Portraits can be done at any point in the school year but it is best to book them early. If you want Fall photos, you need to keep in mind the time change and when the daylight hours start getting shorter. morning and evening light are best if you are looking for an outdoor shoot. With the Oklahoma weather, we all know that the cold season can start anytime around mid October (or can wait until mid December)…IF you want an indoor, on-location shoot then the weather won’t really make a difference with regards to photos…however travel is still a consideration. Plan ahead and book early. Be sure to include the school activities you are involved in this year. 🙂
  2. Themed Photos: Why mention themed photos? Fall means cooler weather. Cooler weather means more outdoor, on-location comfort for those costumes that require a lot of layers and/or make-up. Oklahoma summer heatwaves can cause discomfort or at the least a bit of inconvenience when your theme requires layers of fur, armor, make-up, etc. Though you don’t want to wait for the winter months to set in either unless of course you require that white winter wonderland 🙂 though we can work on that during post process or during scene set-ups too.We would love to get together with YOU this Back to school season to have some photo-FUN. Give us a shout! You can find us on Facebook, online, or you can shoot us an email or text message. Come find us and book YOUR session TODAY!

Country Girl USA

This past weekend I had the opportunity to do a shoot with a young lady who is looking to build a portfolio as an aspiring model. She is great to work with and very “girl next door” down to earth.
Fellow photographer Roger Toliver  and I had a wonderful time at a great location in Bixby, OK.

On location shoots are great. They are like a mini adventure for the “model(s)” and the photographer(s). What’s even better is that on location offers the use of “props” that you don’t have to tote around and you could go ANYWHERE! 🙂 I love on location. The same location varies with each person or group you shoot as personalities do come out and do make a difference. ❤

Every day is a journey through the adventure of life….and we should always make the most of the adventure! Wouldn’t want to miss anything 🙂

So…who’s up for a shoot? Contact me!

You can locate me on Facebook, Twitter, my Website, and you can see galleries on both my website and facebook pages. Please visit and let me know what you think! 😀

Have a wonderful week! …til next time!

High School Forever

Following my path to the Future...
Following my path to the Future…

No I don’t mean High School is forever…but the one thing that seems to be forever, is that Senior Picture that sums up your High School life. This is the one portrait that is sure to be how you, as a senior in high school, are remembered. Why do I say that?

Most Seniors purchase a yearbook, a class ring, and graduation memorabilia. The ONE YEARBOOK sure to be searched through again and again and to show up at every reunion to come is the Senior Yearbook.

Why is this important? Your senior year is the beginning of your future and the end of high school but seems to last eternity. So? Have FUN with it and be yourself! Be WHO YOU ARE….in your photos! 🙂

So…what are you waiting for? Let’s book YOUR SESSION now!

Senior Portraits

Spring is fast approaching….it’s all we can think about with the roller coaster of good and cold weather here in the mid-west.

January is in its last week. February is fast approaching bringing with it Ground Hog Day, Mardi Gras, Valentines Day, and dreams of spring break!

That’s a lot for the shortest month of the year!
