Now is your time to shine, to celebrate all of you, everything you stand for. It is your time to be pampered, to tell your story, to show the world that midwest style, your unique beauty. You are worthy of beautiful images, fit to be shown at a gallery exhibit. You are enough and you deserve the hair and the makeup, the lights, and the red carpet. It's time for country girls to show up, and show out.

THE "SHE IS TULSA" PROJECT IS LIVE AND WE ARE NOW BOOKING ROUND II!

This is your moment. I set out to feature around forty local women over the age of forty to be featured in this exhibit. We shot the first round of women and realized there was no way we could stop there. I want to empower each and every one of you to embrace who you are and show off your personal style. Whether we go full glam with hair, makeup, and an evening gown, or simple and chic with a shoot on your boat in boots and a blazer-This is all about what makes you unique. These are images worthy of Vogue magazine-worthy of YOU and all of the things that you are, all the roles that you play. This is an opportunity to see yourself through my lens, a true expression of how amazing and beautiful you are, and I cannot wait to photograph you in this way.

"It was a beautiful evening. I had the honor of bringing my 18-year-old son and he left understanding the incredible importance of women. I want to say I have taught him that lesson-and I have, but this night was different….. I believe this night has changed his appreciation for women."

"Thank you Nicole Barton for your patience. You have made a major impact on some of my healing & growth process. What I have gained from it, is not what I expected... Yet, have been searching for."

"This was a celebrity experience. It really was. From hair and makeup to these incredible pictures, the red carpet, the big screen-I'll never forget it. These are the best images I've ever had of myself. Truly heirloom images."

"I’m not very comfortable in front of a camera; I become really awkward. Nicole Barton made it so easy. I felt like I was having fun taking pictures with a friend. I could be weird and do my thing without feeling judged. My pictures turned out fabulous.  I also got the privilege to meet a very special group of women, and what an honor it was."

This experience reminded me that I’m not only an educator and mom but also a woman with complex ideas and purpose. Even though I’m not a natural and want to put my “skinniest” foot forward, Nicole’s presence and vision drew out my depth and even presented a new story."

DEBRA

"Undoubtedly we are all busy as moms, wives, business owners. We are expected to have our acts together 24/7 sometimes without a lot of focus on what we have accomplished. Individually we know we work hard. Together, this group, reminded us that we aren’t alone and that Tulsa loves and needs us. Nicole was a gem to my wife and I. I’ll always follow what she does and be a fan."

"This project was a way for me to experience a new adventure that focused on me and not the role that I play in someone else’s life. It was a great experience for me and gave me an evening to spend with my two sons. I think they got to see me in a new light and as one of them is now a parent of three children, helped them to appreciate what it means to be a parent and still invest in yourself. It was a joy to be a part of and I am thankful that Nicole Barton put this all together!"

"I have trouble seeing what I am and do as anything special. Leading up to the premiere, I had trouble getting my mind around why I would be included in a group of such interesting and powerful women. Seeing myself through the eyes of Nicole was quite an emotional experience - humbling, but empowering. I literally had chills when I watched that documentary."

SHANNON GULBRANSON SHE IS TULSA 2022 (48).jpg

DR. SHANNON

"Women equal power! The whole SHE IS TULSA experience celebrated this exponential power, creativity, and strength. I felt honored and grateful to be a part of this incredible group of women AND a woman who calls Tulsa, Home! Thanks again, Nicole!!"

MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Nicole Barton has been shooting professionally for thirteen years. Over the course of her career, she's earned Bronze and Silver in the Portrait Masters Competition and placed in international competitions. She is the creator of Crowned In Silver Magazine and her work has been published in Forbes, and Ebony Magazine, amongst others. Empowering women of all sizes, shapes, shades, and ages through representation in gorgeous images has been her mission for over a decade. It is the bond she builds with the women she meets that drives her passion, as well as watching them transform through the experience of seeing themselves in a new way. 

WHY TULSA? WHY THIS? WHY NOW?

"Last year I relocated to Tulsa from Los Angeles! Six months pregnant with my third daughter, our family moved halfway across the country for something new. I'm a woman who loves to be out in the community, to check out all the places, see all the things, and meet all the people. So far, so good! We are enjoying it here. But you know, people back home think I'm kind of crazy and I always get asked, "Why would you leave California for Tulsa?" People who aren't here have a lot of misconceptions about the Midwest. I was recently photographing a beautiful woman from Kansas City and she told me, "People think women in the Midwest don't have style-and we DO! We're just not represented." Listen, representation is my JAM. (So much so that I created an entire magazine dedicated to mature women who embrace their gray hair because that is a demographic that just wasn't getting the royal treatment that they deserve!) I need women to be SEEN. I need them to be lifted up and to celebrate every facet of who they are. What better way for me to meet all the incredible women in my new community than by highlighting their unique lifestyle and beauty and presenting it to the world in a kickass screening and exhibit?! Because why NOT right?! So now I've turned my lens onto Tulsa, your home, and now my home too. To celebrate the women in this community and create a stunning visual representation of WHO YOU ARE. We shot the first round and the short film, exhibit and red carpet screening were incredible. So many more women approached me wanting to be a part of something so special, and I know there are so many more incredible women here to be featured."

 

I'm here waiting to meet you, and you deserve this.
