Hey there, I'm Traci!

 

Most days you can find me on Instagram Stories documenting my daily adventure of avoiding wild pigs, unwanted anacondas and even Sasquatch while on my "relaxing" morning walks.  If you don't believe me, just go watch....

I am mostly known for my love of vintagey goodness, like those cute little canned ham campers!  Finding local goodness is my jam....give me a local restaurant over a chain any day.

People often refer to me as the chick to go to if you have social media questions because I seem to know a lot about them.  I really don't, I just know more than they know.  HA!!!

The thing I am most passionate about in life is being present in the now and documenting the now.  In 20 years, will this really matter?  I want to document people's existence on this earth at this moment in their life for the future to see.

 

I am lucky enough to create photography experiences and products for busy families who would rather spend time with each other making memories and less time worrying about getting pictures and finding places to print and order products.  Can we all admit that we have at least ONE disc or flash drive with UNPRINTED images on them?  Just say NO MORE.  No more wasted time doing things that drive you bonkers.

 

I have been voted Wagoner Readers' Choice Favorite Photographer for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.  This has been like icing on a cake for me! I am so grateful!

 

When I am not busy working on photography, I will often be found with my husband, David, of 31 years checking out local venues, events and restaurants.  We are empty nesters and we are enjoying every minute of it.  

We have 3 grown daughters, one son-in-law, one daughter-in-law and one granddaughter.  Spending time around our homemade fire pit is one of our most favorite things to do in the evenings.  

Seriously, you might be able to still google homemade fire pit and see mine from when I documented it on my blog.  Let's just say that a tractor tire rim and some good ole rocks make a great fire pit!  At one time, my images were the first to pop up on google.  I was famous like that you know!

 

If you're dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me.

1.  I can say the alphabet backwards in under 10 seconds.

2.  I can spin a basketball on my index finger, pop it off my bicep and back onto my finger while still spinning.

3.  I have a college degree and a teacher certification for Oklahoma. 

4.  I have one earring that has been in my ear....where else would it be....since I was 15 years old.  I am 50 now.  You do the math.  (Well, technically it got taken out for a CT scan 10/13/2017, but immediately put back in)

5.  Spiders are NOT my friend....or snakes, or wasps.....ick.
