dear Oklahoma, you are my first love, you give me the good kind of butterflies and you give me something to look forward to.
I owe a big thank you to everyone who made 2018 so special. To start it off I went to San Fransisco, danced the night away at my senior prom, graduated High School, went to Super Summer and Falls Creek for the last time, attended the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute for photography, started college at OU, photographed OU football and traveled to the Big 12 championship as well as to Miami for the Orange Bowl playoff game with the team, and I was awarded 2018 photographer of the year with many other awards. It seems that I’ve had a great year but without all of these amazing people it would not have lived up to the hype. I have gone through a lot this year and I have gotten a lot out of it. I am so grateful for 2018 and I am so ready for all 2019 has in store for me!
I've gotten to work with an amazing athlete who is such a genuine person. Perry Olsen was the Quarter back for Yukon High School and is moving onto bigger things. He will be the Quarterback for the United States Naval Academy. Out of all my years at Yukon I have never seen anyone bring the team together like he has, he has made it a family.
Happy birthday Leah, I hope this video is a constant reminder that life is sweet. You have found your people, they are home and they always will be.
Photographer Lindsey Wrinkler and I put together a shoot for summer 2019. Shoutout to our models who killed it, Claire Wilson, Hannah Scarbrough, and Elly Burns!
So this story feels like fate...
I got asked to go on a tour of a journalism college last minute by a principal at my high school. I said heck yes because the tour was at the University of Oklahoma (the college that I had dreamed of going to and actually got accepted to). So obviously I went on the tour and fell in love with the creative media production part of Gaylord College at OU! I never tried film but I've always thought that it was exciting. I decided to try out my hand at it and thanks to the support of my friends and peers I think I finally found my niche. This is THE video, let me say it louder for the people in the back, THE VIDEO. I loved filming and editing this video. The sky is only the limit for me and I know the best is still yet to come but I'd say this is a good starting point. So Yukon Millers are you ready???
