Kristie McClenny is a 2001 graduate of Oklahoma State with a degree in Elementary Education. For the past eleven years she has been a stay-at-home mom to her three children.
Frustrated by receiving batch after batch of under- or over-exposed photos of her children, McClenny developed an interest in photography. She gave herself the ability to freeze memories so that one day she could look back and remember the blessings from that moment.
This desire led McClenny on a journey she least expected, providing her with a wealth of education, self-awareness, friendship and love.
After buying her first macro lens, McClenny discovered she had the ability to see small, distinct details. She believes that everything small echoes the larger world that she knows in a beautiful way.
On most days, McClenny can be found on the ground of her flower garden photographing the raw beauty and life that she finds.
Kristie receives joy from photography, not just from the images that surface, but from the contentment of the very act of creating. This is a calling that is well matched with her current lifestyle, but she hopes she can merge her passions into her new career choice — a “Stay-at-Home Photographer.”
