Where to start when talking about Morgan Woolard? If you’ve spent any amount of time with her, you know exactly what I mean; there’s just so much to say. And somehow, if you miraculously managed to overlook her effortless & awe-inspiring beauty, then you’d stumble upon an absolutely amazing person whose faith is rooted in God’s love & mercy. So if it’s not enough to fall for her style & smile, surely her heart & who she is at her very core will win you over.
What I really respect about her is that her words aren’t just empty words, she truly lives out what she believes, which is a life of loving God & loving people. She serves because of that love. Anyone who knows me will attest of how much my heart resonates with anyone who gives like that. It stirs my soul.
I promise that if you “like” Morgan’s Facebook Page, her daily inspirational thoughts on life & faith will not fail to impact you.
For months, I kept noticing that little car dealership office building & knew it had great potential for a killer shoot. So one day I took a sample photo of it & sent it to Morgan to see what she thought. I think she liked it! Before I knew it, even my awesome designer friend, Kristie Keys, took on the role of the Wardrobe Stylist. Things just started falling into place!
My photographer friend, Eric Woodside, also joined in on the festivities & helped me out so much with the planning & orchestrating of the lighting.A day before the shoot, it rained like crazy. Eric & I went to the location to draw out a plan & on our way back, we got rear-ended while yielding to traffic on a left-hand turn. The car that hit us hydroplaned at maybe 30-40mph crashing into the back of my jeep. My AC vent popped out, my rearview mirror fell off, & Eric’s hat flew into my backseat from the impact. Needless to say, we both felt really sore for the shoot the next day.
The shoot went so well in spite of the pain! We had a lot of laughs, the weather cooperated perfectly, & I had a blast just hanging out with great friends! Plus, how can you not have a great time when you get to shoot Miss Oklahoma?
I loved the whole “Hot Nerd in Front of a Rundown Car Lot Building” idea. Sizzor Shak provided the hair styling & airbrush make-up & had none other than the amazing Megan J take care of Morgan! I always love Megan’s hair & make up work!
I had a tremendous amount of help for this shoot, so please take a peek at the credits below, because I could not have pulled this off without the help of my wonderful friends!
