Oklahoma Portrait Photographer: Car Lovers

Over the years, I’ve had a lot of requests from my clients to include “things” in their portraits; pets, guitars, shoe collections, hats, sports equipment, and more . . . but no one “thing” is more popular than cars! ¬†It doesn’t matter if it is a boy or a girl, when a person loves their car, they love showing it off. Here are a few of my favorites from last year.

Oklahoma Portrait Photographer: 2011 in Portraits

It was very difficult to choose, but here are some of my favorite photos from my clients in 2011 . . . I love my clients, and even as I’m uploading these photos, I’m thinking of others that I would like to include . . . so I can’t say these are my very favorite photos from the year, but they are definitely among my absolute favorites from 2011.

January 2011

This baby girl was so much fun to photograph. This was the first time I’d used a cocoon, and it is absolutely one of my favorite photos.

February 2011

I took photos of these adorable twins at the Oklahoma City Zoo.

March 2011
This sweet couple, also photographed at the zoo, was getting ready to adopt a baby, and we did these photos for their adoption paperwork. I love this moment between them!



This gorgeous family was particularly fun to photograph. These photos were taken in Bricktown. I love their sweet baby’s expression in this photo.

May 2011


This was a completely spontaneous gesture, and I’m so glad I captured it!


Sarah is an actress who wanted some new, sultry, photos for her portfolio. She is so gorgeous, and I love the way this photo is sexy, yet innocent, at the same time.


Mikayla came to me for her Senior photos. I love this photo – her girly dress, barefoot, on the wood bridge. I especially love the way all the colors pop!



This is a mother and daughter, obviously they are non-tradition in their life, and they wanted non-traditional portraits. I think it is a beautiful portrait of two gorgeous women!


Another barefoot shot! At home in her gorgeous nursery, I adore this shot of this beautiful mom and her three month old daughter.



Doesn’t this melt your heart. I love a newborn in their daddy’s hands. The honesty of this father’s eyes in the portrait make it very special.

November 2011


Photos like this are the reason why I love doing Senior photos outdoors in Fall! The intense colors, and coupled with the still water pond and reflection . .. not to mention the gorgeous young woman . . . what’s not to love?

December 2011


I have never done a newborn portrait quite like this one, but I love it. Newborns aren’t easy to photograph with their eyes open because their eye color and pupil color tends to be very close, so their eyes don’t appear focused. I love that, in this photo, he appears to be looking directly into the camera!

Happy New Year!

I love my clients, and I hope that this year, if you haven’t worked with me in the past, you join my client family as well!

Hi, Tera,

I don’t know whether you would remember me. I remember you because you led a workshop for a group in Orange County, CA using Julia Cameron’s book. Somehow, over the years, life intervenes and I lose contacts that I once treasured. You helped me stretch my imagination and my hopes, so you have always had a special place in my heart. How are you? I found your photography site and was not surprised at the caliber of the portraits I viewed. Your work is always on the cutting edge!

I’m cleaning an old file and came across some Tera’s Wish newsletters I had saved. Is this wonderful enterprise ongoing? Please drop me a line if you have a moment. Thanks, johnyne
