Stacie came to us through a mutual friend.
Her free "PR" portrait was just not her, and emotionally, even free proved to be too expensive.
She was so pleased with our "creative approach" that she ordered three different poses for the different uses that she had.
We are always happy to share with potential clients stories like this, plus for only around $1.00 a week for the two years that their portrait is current, they could have a portrait that reflects the professional that they truly are.

We are introducing our new "LIFESTYLE" portrait.
Whatever you do that is who you are, one of a kind.
It's special, just as you are!
And to Rebecca, thanks for the inspiration!

mini open house

We want to thank all those who came to our "mini open house" last Friday. The food from Costello's was great, and it was nice to meet the families and friends of our clients.
If you didn't make it by, pop in sometime and see the new portraits in the gallery (all of the studio portraits were taken in the new camera room).

ashley & jake

Ashley and Jake (plus their families) have been clients of ours for several decades, and we are very grateful to capture these beautiful portraits. There families ordered a series of nine different photographs to create a special memory of a great time.
One of the things Jolene and I have noticed is that with the demise of wedding day photography, our engagement and bridal session counts have really gone up. A great portrait is someting that will be treasured for generation.

Dakota, great to meet you and do a portrait in a location that reminds you of where you hunt.
Also, good to meet your dad and find out who your mom is. 40 years of "the Taco Bandito" in one form or another has made me the man I am today! :-)
Also, best wishes for your time in the Marines after graduation.

Here it is, the official "Brad and Viktor" press release portrait.
Be sure to see them when they return to Enid.
And also, a tip of the hat to the Enid Arts group that put their concert together, great job!

miss ella

What a great outfit, the hat, the polka dots, it makes a great portrait (combined with a really sweet expression).

Stephanie, thanks for the opportunity to photograph you. We had a blast, and I love the portraits.
Best wishes for the rest of your senior year!

Almost too cool?
I don't think so.
You can never be too rich, thin, or cool!
Keep on keeping on.

miss whitney

What's black and white and red all over (other than an old joke, and it's not the "Rockie Mountain News" after last Friday)? It's our newest portrait of Whitney. Thanks for a great idea on the original "roses" portrait.

34th anniversary

34 years ago today, the studio opened. With my dad co-signing on a bank note for $6000, a 22 year old who fancied himself as a rock and roll influenced photographer hit the ground running.
Now here I am, with the backing of a great community, working with my wife (and all of my children when they were in high school) doing what I love for a living. Every morning I wake up looking forward to coming here to photograph you and your loved ones.
Thank you for the opportunity of a lifetime.

Happy, happy, joy, joy!
