Lifestyle Photos – Margy of Healthy & Hustlin’

Margy is an AADP Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach who recently launched her business called Healthy & Hustlin’. She contacted me in need of imagery for her website and social media – everything from headshots to active workout photos! We shot everything at the New Urbanism community of Carlton Landing as it provided us the perfect backdrop for each lifestyle scenario. Margy’s boyfriend came along to hop in a few photos and we all had a lovely meal together that evening prepared by Margy herself!

Check out Healthy & Hustlin’ for a boost to a healthy lifestyle!

Interiors – Bright, Clean, & Beachy

Last week I was tasked with photographing the interiors of a home at Carlton Landing. If you’ve been following my work over the past year you may recognize the style of this charming home, as it is near the Carlton Landing home I photographed last year (here and here). I also came out here earlier this year to assist with a Southern Living photoshoot, which was super exciting!

Photographing this home (it’s called the Boardwalk Bungalow) was so. much. fun. I got to stay here the night before so I woke up to the most delicious light, made myself some coffee, turned on my Jack Johnson station on Apple Radio, and got to work. I love how the home owner has decorated with the beach theme, but kept it modern with all white walls and really bright pops of color. And the marble countertops in the kitchen are something to write home about themselves! :)

You can stay in this beautiful home by renting it for a weekend or whatnot. It’s a wonderful getaway, only 2 hours from OKC!

Stay tuned for more photos from this same visit featuring Margy from Healthy and Hustlin’!

Scenes of the Southwest

My husband and I recently embarked on a road trip through the Southwest to visit National Parks and other natural attractions. It’s such a beautiful part of the country, with so many things to see within a couple hours of each other. We spent six days on the road, exhausting ourselves everyday with hiking and hanging out in the desert heat. But the pay off was so high with unbelievable sights and a ridiculous amount of photo ops. Visual candy, I tell you!

I will be posting more casual photos and details about our itinerary on my travel blog if you’re interested in reading more about our trip!

Sky Dance – OKC Ballerina Sarah Worden

Above Interstate 40 in Oklahoma City is a relatively new bridge called “SkyDance”. The architecture is inspired by the state bird, the scissored-tail flycatcher. At night the bridge lights up and changes colors every ten seconds or so. Sarah and I met here one evening in May to shoot ballet portraits incorporating the bridge’s architecture. I wanted flowy fabrics while the sun was still out to give softness next to all the straight lines. Sarah brought these beautiful yellow and blue watercolor skirts. After dark she changed into a galaxy print leotard which I thought lent itself well to the kind of futuristic vibe of the illuminated architecture. I’m proud of what we ended up with!
