Brenda Horan is the owner and lead photographer at the studio. She’s the mother of two – Travis, a OSU graduate, and Bella who’s attending OU.
How it all got started: When my daughter Isabella was born, I fell in love with her baby portraits and decided to turn an interest into a full-time passion. After studying at the Art Institute in Houston and working for a studio, I launched my own business in Annapolis, Maryland and created a niche market for photographing my favorite subject – little ones! Nearly 19 years later and every professional portrait is unique and personal piece of art.
Each appointment is an opportunity to build relationships and lasting friendships with my wonderful clients. As a mother to two incredible kids, I depend on the Lord for everything! A few years ago, the Lord spoke these words into me – “Giving God Glory through God Given Talent” – I thought He was giving me a “tag line” of sorts, but since then, He has shown me that this is more like my life motto – my life goal – to do all things with grace, kindness and love. Through this, I will be showing others honor, and giving Him Glory in all that I do. I’m not perfect, I have my mishaps, but it is my life goal. Looking through the lens of my camera, I am constantly reminded that I am capturing His children.
As a self proclaimed antique junkie, my studio guarantees each client a one-of-a-kind session. My professional photographer studio is filled with lots of fun stuff – colorful backgrounds, props, vintage clothing and princess dresses, knitted hats, cocoons, flower pins and headbands, tutu’s, ties, and all sorts of antiques. (Did I mention, I’m a antique junkie?). Everything to make this experience into a story for you and your child.
Everything you encounter at Brenda Horan Photography is created with a purpose. Great is The Lord. He gives me inspiration and ideas – even in the middle of the night!
