  • A Tulsa, Oklahoma Destination Engagement Shoot

This shoot. Where do I start? How about the VERY beginning! We had just landed and were in our rental car when I noticed that it was only 2:30pm and it seemed DARK to me. The clouds were heavy and the rain was coming. I knew about the rain but the dark clouds and dreary skies had me worried about LIGHT. If we started at 5:30…. two hours before sunset, by the time 6:30 rolled around, I would be struggling to keep this couple under cover and also exposing properly without a flash.

Is blogging DEAD & do you need a Youtube Channel?!

  • Why I started a Youtube Channel & what this means for you!

There is a common theme in my business…. and I’m totally ok with it… I’m actually HONORED that this happens constantly. When I decide to CHANGE something in my business, there is a swarm of other business owners who are watching and want to know if they need to change too. I get it. Back in the day, I watched Jasmine Star like a hawk (Jstar, if you read this, it wasn’t in a creepy way, I promise!)

Graham’s Tenth Month

We’re in double digits. Double digits. I honestly can’t imagine my life without you. You’re so precious to me. I know I’m your momma but I’m convinced that you’re the sweetest boy on this planet. The way you reach for me when I walk in a room or smile at me from across a room when you realize that I’m close just melts my heart. Your beautiful blue eyes are kind and your bleach blonde hair is beautiful….. surprising, but beautiful. Your daddy and I just said today that you’re complexion almost looks like you’re an icelandic prince!
