Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog- a place where I share a bit of my photography, a bit of my life, and a lot of me! I am in love with the life that God has provided me. I live with my wonderful husband in central Oklahoma, in the town of Edmond. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I enjoy my work as a nurse and photographer. I adore sweets, nature, and my pesky (but cute) boxer, Honey. I feel that I am blessed with a passion for photography, and pray that I am able to bless others through it.

Thank you for being here and sharing the experience with me!

climbing that mountain

"hey man, think you can climb to the top of that rock there?"
"i'm not sure, but lets see!"

this is how i imagine the first set of rock climbers got their start. crazy- yes. frightening- yes. absolutely amazing- yes.

for me, rock climbing is more that knowing where to put your hands and feet, its overcoming the very practical part of my brain that's saying 'your insane!! please, step off the mountain!' i've never been a daredevil or risk taker (the most i gamble at casinos is $5) but i've always looked at my aunt and uncles climbing pics and thought how amazing that would be.

so there i was, hugging a mountain for dear life while completely harnessed into gear that could hold at least 5x my weight (and in my new snazzy climbing shoes, of course!). although ray kicked my butt at climbing (he even lead a climb for the first time!), i feel a sense of accomplishment, and hopefully, now that i have the most expensive pair of shoes i've ever bought, encouragement to keep 'climbing that mountain..'

here's the climbing pics, later i'll post some nature pics (you already know i love 'em!)

did i mention, crazy?

aunt ml uncle dave

an amazing climbing friend of theirs
cousin mason cousin addie
and me! a little out of focus..but look at that view!
and the result of me climbing
(this is not what it's supposed to look like)

and the two first time lead climbers! (a lead climber is the first one up that mountain who, along that way, sets up the rope for the rest of us to climb of off. it can mean a potentially longer fall, but these two did great!)

oh how i love: love.

okay, so it sounds pretty simple.. i love love. i know its corny, but i am forever grateful for the love that my friends and family have shown me over the years, and now that i have a husband who absolutely adores me, it takes love to a whole new level. the purpose of these pictures is to show the love of a couple who will soon be committing their lives to each other. but the work that went on behind the pics expresses just as much love as the actual prints do. ray, in fulfillment of his word, pulled an allnighter the night before our mission trip to finish editing these pictures of our friends so that they could get them as he had promised. in my love for photography, ray has shown his undying love and support of me, and i just wanted to take this moment to thank him. so thanks ray! you always amaze me :c)
and about the couple.. jen and nick have been dating for years, and on some unknown date next year, will become one. both of them pretty much never stop, so i was excited that we were able to get together for this shoot!
we started at oneok in downtown tulsa (the employer of both of them)

then we moved on to a beautiful downtown church, they were wedding site shopping
during our shoot :c)

oh how i love: love.

God is Good~ at oak grove

on saturday we got to help lifechruch.tv and serveral other okc chruches do an amazing mission in a local section 8 housing district. from landscaping, arts and crafts, haircuts, photography, medical aid, and fellowship.. it was an amazing combination of gifts provided to this community. the sheer number of participants willing to wake up before the sun on a saturday morning was amazing, and leaving the community with an area to be proud of was humbling.
the landscaping was a prime project

the faces of God's children
backlighting a kitten~beautiful!
more faces
our photography philanthropy... see how much they enjoyed it :c)
and the highlight was the huge waterslide!

okay, so i'm totally getting photoshop hooked with all these cool actions!! here's a teaser of one of my best friends, dre and her soon-to-be hubby, mark! (i say teaser because i'm lovin' a lot of the images and will be blogging a lot more :c)

although our orignal plans of shooting at martin nature park failed (what park closes at 6:00?! this one i guess..), we found a great substitue at the myriad gardens...

aren't they just cute together?

loved the backlighting here!
and of course.. a little goofing off!

on a sidenote.. the sky had the most amazing clouds today (i'm lucky i didn't wreck my car looking at them on my way home from work!) but i was telling everyone about them, and although a picture can not do justice, here's my attempt..
