"Do you know that nothing you do in this life will ever matter, unless it is about loving God and loving the people he has made?” This question comes from the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan. I read it back when I was in college and it has stuck with me ever since. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in this world matters unless it revolves around loving God and loving others.
As a Christian I know I've been called to reflect Him and bring him glory through every aspect of my life including my photography. I want everything I do in this venture to magnify Him and I believe that's one aspect of my business that sets me apart from many others. My goal is to not only capture the amazing seasons of life He has blessed you with but to love and serve as well.
The anxiousness of graduating and starting your own life, the intricate cut of your new engagement ring, the way your dad cries when he sees you in your wedding dress on your big day, the way your newborn looks when he sleeps, baking cookies with grandma... these are the things we don't want to forget and I want to make sure that the aren't.
Picture Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music. She is the definition of lighthearted. She is filled with joy, whimsy & positivity. I love it. I love that movie! It makes me feel good when I watch it. I'm hoping my photographs have a similar effect, capturing the joy, whimsy & the positives found in the everyday.
What is it that grabs at your heartstrings? For me it's a kiss on the forehead from my sweet husband, sharing a sweet tea with an old friend, leather soled cowgirl boots that slide easily across a wood floor, making it a breeze to dance. It's the little things that make me happy and I'm betting it's the same for you. I want the little things to be seen and made significant, not go unnoticed.
Your $50 deposit is non-refundable, but if you re-schedule your session with me within 48 hours before your initial session is scheduled to begin, your deposit may be used for a future session.
No, raw images are working files only. When you purchase a photo session with me it includes the shoot and the final edits. I do not deliver unfinished products.
My turnaround time depends on the time of season, some are busier than others, but in general I say no longer than 15 to 20 business days for general sessions, 30-40 business days for weddings.
This organization is close to my heart. A little over 5 years ago a friend urged me to sponsor a child through this organization and it's been such a blessing. Domiano is my sponsored child's name and I receive updates about him periodically. We often send letters back and forth to each other. I love seeing his show up in my mail box. They are often more drawings than words but they sure make my day. In addition to being able to sponsor a child World Vision does many other things geared toward "tackling the causes of poverty and injustice," such as providing clean water, aiding in health care and fighting sex-trafficking, to name a few.
"City Rescue Mission is a private, faith-based nonprofit organization providing solution-based ministry to the homeless and near homeless in the Oklahoma City metro."
Signs of Hope Foundation is a non-profit organization that my mom started in the spring of 2017. For about a year she had a stirring in her heart to bring the good news of the Bible to the streets of Oklahoma and she wanted to do that through highway billboards. Signs of Hope Foundation puts up captivating billboards that display beautiful pictures and scripture verses in an effort to bring God's word to those who may never see it otherwise.
As mentioned above, my goal in this business is to bring God glory through every aspect and that includes the profits I receive. As my client's and friends I believe it's only right that you know where a percentage of your money is going when you hire me for photography services. Below I have listed the charities I give to most often, some are close to home and some are abroad, but all mean a whole lot to me! Click on the title of each for more information regarding them.
