TULSA'S GOT MOVES OF ALL KINDS AND WE WANT TO CAPTURE THEM ALL.
Dance is one of the most dynamic forms of art there is; From the music driving the dance to the costumes, the styling, lighting and performance, facial expression, and the movement itself. And yet another layer of art is added when dance is photographed. You've put in the work, the sweat, the tears, the hours of practice. You have the costumes, the gear, the music-You're ready to shine! Let's capture all of that in beautiful, timeless fine art images.
THE "TULSA MOVES" PROJECT IS LIVE AND WE ARE NOW BOOKING!
This is your moment. I'm featuring just forty local dancers between the ages of four and one hundred to be featured in a beautiful photo anthology book. I want to capture the beauty and the energy of dancers like you. These are images worthy of Vogue magazine-worthy of YOU and all of the hard work and time you've invested. This is an opportunity to see yourself through my lens, a true expression of how amazing and beautiful you are in your craft, and I cannot wait to photograph you in this 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. Back home, I was the exclusive photographer for several dance companies, and I've been shooting dance performances and dance portraits for years. My work in dance has won awards but, it's also truly one of my favorite things to photograph. (I myself am no great dancer! LOL. But I get to live vicariously through those who do it well!) Now that I have settled into my new home, I'd love to get back to shooting dance again, and honestly, Tulsa is a great place to do it! There's such a wide variety of cultures here and this city is truly a budding arts destination. I thought, 'What better way to document all that than in a gorgeous photography book showcasing all these incredible images.' It's also a great way for me to meet new people, and see all your moves Tulsa!"
