Stiletto heels and Coca-cola -Oklahoma art photographer

Make that BLACK stilettos. I was doing a senior session with a friend, and I saw this and thought, ART! Isn't it awesome! It would be great as a large wall canvas or print for a conversation piece. Or just as a greeting card. I'm going to be doing more of these types of images as they are so fun.

If you click on the image it will take you to the direct online gallery where you can buy a copy and see more of my work and that of many other fine artists.

Western Spirit Celebration | Oklahoma photographer

Thanks to Rope the dog and Hannah's boots, I have a great new photo. I used it as my twitter background page. Rope's quite the character. My granddaughter saw the dog from across the grounds during Western Spirit Celebration and took off to play with the dog. I'm glad she did or I wouldn't have gotten these great shots. I'll post more later today. By the time we got to the festival in the late afternoon, the Heritage Herd longhorns were nowhere in sight. Not sure where they went and I didn't think to ask. Last year I rode with the cattle drive, in the back of Steve Tevebaugh's wagon and every year since Mya was a baby, I've shot her photo with them as the background. Missed this year, drats! But we still managed to get some wagon shots and they are hilarious. Mya wasn't in the mood for photos yesterday. Another great thing this year was I had my first solo exhibit, which is still on display at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center. Four of my photographs sold yesterday. I'll post photos in another blog entry today. The show is up until the end of the month and hopefully more images sell! Go see it if you are in the area. Well, that's the extent of this post, I smell bacon and eggs. Have a great Sunday! I love photographing dogs and their kids or people.

Beauty of Blogging - Oklahoma photographer


So there I am sitting looking at my summer copy of Artful Blogging. Love that magazine, but haven't had a chance to really read much of this particular issue. I stumbled onto the Simply Hue section and thought, hey, that really sounds familiar, saw Vicki D's name and knew I had a connection somehow. Terrible how we get caught up in life and little things get buried in the abyss of our over-creative minds.
I had already put my computer into sleep mode and was about to head there myself when I saw the article. So I came back to my desk.
Sure enough, went to Simply Hue, then went to my etsy to find the original post/reply that started it all. Mine is the one at the bottom and what I sent Vicki. Her reply is after, so it's on top.

Hi Toni,

Thanks for your message. :) Your photography is beautiful! Would you mind if I posted a few of your photos next Friday?

I found you through your blog. I think it's yours. So far it looks quite lovely and interesting!
I hope to spend some time on it in the morning before I head off to work.

Now about that! Someone who took the time to promote ME, my photos a year ago, finally has been published. Congratulations! That's so wonderful and I've made a point to be more dedicated not only to my blog, but to the blog of Simply Hue, plus other blogs. I'm kind of hit and miss mostly and I feel a bit guilty.
Be sure to go visit Simply Hue, visit the link to see what Vicki chose to feature on her blog a year again. Do enjoy!

Oh, and come back here to post a comment to share which of my photos over there delighted you!

Sunflowers and Exhibits, western style - Oklahoma photographer

I know, 'bad blogger'...but here's a bit of sunshine to brighten your day, or night, whatever the case might be from your desk. I promise to be back regularly but lately have been busy and also enjoying checking out lots of creative blogs and am inspired by it all.
Photography Prints
So, this print like all the others in my new gallery at FAA can be bought as a greeting card.
Soon I will post a blog entry about my first upcoming solo exhibit. I'm so excited and if you happen to be in Duncan after the week of Sept. 13, be sure to stop by the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center to see it.
