Abbie & Tomas | Myriad Botanical Gardens | Oklahoma City, OK

Myriad Botanical Gardens

Last winter, Abbie & Tomas contacted me to photograph their girlfriend & boyfriend session at the Myriad Botanical Gardens in Oklahoma City.  I absolutely love photographing at new locations and this one didn’t disappoint!  It was cold outside but that didn’t stop them from showing their love for one another.  Here are some of my favorite portraits from their session:

Abbie & Tomas purchased a photography gift certificate I donated to the Light the Future Gala benefitting The Maisha Project.  Thank you, Abbie & Tomas for donating to benefit vulnerable children and communities in Kenya.  You two were hilarious together and a joy to photograph! Let me know if you’re ever in the Tulsa area and want to schedule another session.

About The Maisha Project

Here is some more information about the Maisha Project from their website:

Maisha works with abandoned, orphaned and vulnerable children in the rural villages just outside Kisumu and in the Nyalenda slums within Kisumu City to empower them to transform their community.

We invest in education, health, local entrepreneurs, and infrastructure/community building projects. As we expand the economic empowerment project, sustainability is fostered in all the other projects.

It takes a village of people to make the villages of Kenya become sustainable. It takes a village being sustainable to give the newest generation hope for the future. We are a village of people united, with more in common than we realize, working towards the same goals. Thank you for being part of the Maisha Family.

What a great mission! Do you have a charitable event coming up? Contact me with the details!  I love to donate gift certificates to silent auctions to share my time and talent with the community. I can’t wait to meet you!
