Hi - I'm Shae - a photographer based in the Oklahoma City Metro area. Born and raised in this crazy weather state.
I grew up with a shutter bug grandmother. Every family gathering had to end with a snap shot of us sitting on the couch or everyone gathered around the dinner table to help someone blow out candles.
The biggest difference back then.... we actually printed out the photos. Something that kids these days do not understand. One of my best memories growing up was sitting on the couch looking at photo albums. I want the current generation of kids to have those memories too!
I like to keep sessions simple and authentic, kind of like hanging out with a good friend that just happens to be pretty good with a camera.
I have never been really comfortable with stage photo sessions, and have learned that it's the pictures of real moments that will truly be cherished when someone is gone thus is why I work with the documentary approach.
I truly feel that everyday life is so much more beautiful than forced smiles and saying "Cheese".
