You’re {Not} So Vain

I’ve never understood why women find it vain to have portraits hanging up of themselves. I shoot all styles of portrait work but boudoir is what I am most drawn to. In the 19 years I’ve been shooting boudoir, I’ve noticed a trend of women feeling ashamed to have these images on display in their homes. They are afraid [...]

Pretty Little Things

I've always been drawn to the prettier things of life. The textures and raw intricacies found in the everyday often are what fuel my creativity. When I met Messina working in a local café, I found her personality and doe-like brown eyes inviting. I knew her unique beauty was a perfect fit for the avant-garde shoot I had [...]

Voulez Vous Glamour

Last summer I had the honor of having Tiana as an intern from OSU, where I graduated from.  I was excited to have her in the studio and guide her along with how I work.  We took some time during her internship to play with posing, lighting, wardrobe, post-processing, etc. The images of her in the silver dress are [...]

Beauty Portraits

Beauty, confidence, bubbly, and so smart, Brandi had me giggling through her photoshoot with stories of Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, and teenagers.  These portraits were a gift to her husband for his birthday. Brandi! You are a doll! :) A special thank you to Ashlee & Heather at Primp Salon in Tulsa for hair and makeup.

Sweet Magnolia

This was a personal project inspired by the very large magnolia tree in my back yard.  As I would quietly sit and reflect the sweet magnolia would fill the air in spring.  I would close my eyes and take a deep breathe wishing I could preserve that smell for hours.  As I opened my eyes again I noticed all [...]

Art & Design

Iskralin is an amazing artist.  She designs rooms, windows and much more.  I met her while working with Colors Of Etnika and when I saw what she has done and her creativeness I ask her to help design some sets for the studio.  As she was walking around the studio the wreath caught her eye and she ask if [...]

Voulez Vous Couture

I needed an image I could use as a billboard on the side of my two-story, 100-year old, brick building downtown Tulsa.  It took me a long time to visualize what I wanted; Fashion couture look, wardrobe, location, backdrop, a young lady that I could look at everyday (which is my niece), the composition...this thought process took me a [...]
