“I absolutely loved the encouragement from Laken throughout the entirety of the shoot. She's the best hype woman and made me feel like I was the most beautiful and bad ass woman alive."


Hi there! I’m Laken. I’m a wife to the orneriest man I know and the mother to two beautiful and sassy girls. We live on a legitimate funny farm in McAlester, OK. When we’re not out chasing our children or animals, you can find us riding four wheelers, hunting, camping… basically anything outdoors! I love all carbs and have a mean addiction to good coffee. I can watch re-runs of Friends and The Office aaall day. 

Above all though, I love me some Jesus. This love just so happens to be where my “why” for portrait photography stems from. Regardless of whether you have the same beliefs as I do, I whole heartedly believe that you were fearfully and wonderfully made. I want to show you that you were created to perfection. Every detail was flawlessly crafted, right down to the single strands of hair placed on your head. 

I understand that this experience takes a lot of trust in someone that you don’t particularly know. I assure you, I will never take that trust for granted. Stepping out of your comfort zone is scary but I will be there to help you every step of the way. From preparing for your shoot, choosing outfits, posing you from head to toe, and helping you decide which images to use for your gorgeous art collection, you will do no part of this process alone. I love my clients dearly and pride myself on creating the most memorable portrait experience.


Makeup Artist

Hey there! Let me start off by introducing myself, I’m Morgan! I’m a born and raised Okie, growing up here local to McAlester. I come from a very livestock-oriented family, or all animals for that matter, and spent my school years showing cattle, which I’m proud to say I was very successful with. I met my husband, Mark, my sophomore year of high school, and a few years down the road we married and started our family together. We were blessed with 3 beautiful sons, and our hearts have never been fuller. 

I have been in the makeup industry for many years. From bridal parties, family pictures, engagement sessions, and just “nights out on the town”, I love all the looks I’ve been able to create with my clients. Having them see their selves in an entirely different light, by just enhancing what natural beauty they have, will never grow old to me. Becoming a freelance MUA has been nothing but one opportunity after the next, and I’m happy to say working with Laken is one of the ones I cherish most!
