fall college senior portraits 146This is Nicole. She just graduated from UCO in Edmond, and we did a fun session a couple months ago to commemorate this huge accomplishment in her life. The UCO campus and downtown Edmond provided some great backdrops for our session. And Nicole brought it with her cute outfits, perfect hair, and warm smile.fall college senior portraits 136fall college senior portraits 137VS Angels aren’t the only girls who can rock some fierce faux wings. ;)fall college senior portraits 138fall college senior portraits 139fall college senior portraits 140Kudos to Nicole for urging me to let her bravely pose on this random porch of some strangers. {Thanks, strangers. ;)}fall college senior portraits 141fall college senior portraits 142fall college senior portraits 143fall college senior portraits 144fall college senior portraits 145fall college senior portraits 147fall college senior portraits 148fall college senior portraits 149fall college senior portraits 150fall college senior portraits 151Some professional head shots for her grown up life.. :)fall college senior portraits 152fall college senior portraits 153Nicole~

photo shoot ~ kylie’s bricktown senior portraits

downtown oklahoma city senior portraits 121This is Kylie. Clearly, she’s a stunner. That hair! Those eyes! The cute outfits! I love it all. :)downtown oklahoma city senior portraits 122I never get tired of photographing people in Bricktown here in OKC. It seems like there are always new perspectives to be found in this cool area. I had a great time wandering around with Kylie and her mom and sis for this session.downtown oklahoma city senior portraits 123downtown oklahoma city senior portraits 124Girls, THIS is how you do a serious face.

I am not at all able to keep up and post in real time, so all my sessions have long since been delivered to clients by the time I post them here. But I love sharing the gorgeous, cool, unique people I get to photograph. Plus, if I don’t post them on here, how can I pin them to Pinterest?? :) But seriously, I like having my Pinterest images linked back to my site here. And my portrait session images are far and away my most re-pinned images! Three cheers for original content, right? :)

And now that I’ve veered off into Pinterest talk, can we discuss some stuff? I don’t like how I get so many suggested pins now that are not at all what I want to see or re-pin. Is there a way to curate that? Also, anyone have any Pinterest faves for me to follow?

photo shoot ~ caleb’s senior portraits in iowa

outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 20Today is a cold, dreary day in Oklahoma, so posting these images from a beautiful, sunny morning in Iowa a few months ago is warming me up a little right now. This is my cousin Caleb. Isn’t he so handsome?? And he is a really great guy, too. I’m so proud of him and excited to see what he will do with his life after high school.outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 22Not too many people want to get up at the crack of dawn for an early morning session, but Caleb was early and waiting for me to arrive before 7am on the day of our session! And would you just look at this gorgeous morning light? Totally worth an early start, in my opinion!outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 21outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 23My aunt Lisa, Caleb’s mom, suggested this first location, and man was it perfect!outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 24From there, we headed to a place Caleb is very familiar with and comfortable at: his high school track.outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 25outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 26outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 27outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 28The rest of the photos were taken at my grandparents’ farm near Blakesburg, Iowa. This is one of my very favorite places to photograph people! There are too many good spots all around out there.outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 29outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 30outdoor male senior portraits in iowaoutdoor male senior pictures in iowa 32outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 33outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 34outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 35outdoor male senior pictures in iowa 36Caleb~
