Hey, y’all!

Spring Mini Sessions – Norman, Oklahoma Photographer


I had a quick day of mini-sessions at the end of my senior season this year and I LOVED IT. I’m driven a lot by productivity & relationships and there’s not a lot that makes me feel more full than getting to do what I love – meet with, celebrate, and shoot multiple clients in one day! It was so sweet to get together with the Russell’s again – the last time I shot their family was just before the holidays and this time they had some fun news to share! Thank you guys for letting me in on your secret and trusting me to capture your darling family! I love the time I get to spend with you!

Ashley and Madeline were my two seniors this night and we had a blast! Since it was towards the end of the season, it was a little less crowded than normal on campus and made bopping around a lot easier. My favorite part of these two shoots was the intentional conversation I had with both girls. If you want to get to know me well, get me in a 1-on-1 setting and I’ll pretty much tell you anything you want to know. I’m an open book! I was really able to connect with Ashley and Madeline, which was honestly an answered prayer! With mini-sessions, we obviously had less time, but I still feel like we were able to get to know each other and enjoy our time shooting! Here are just a few favorites from each of my minis!

(If you’re interested in a mini session, stay in the loop! I only offer these 1-2 times a year!)
