I am a mom of three kiddos (two teenage girls and one goofy little boy), wife to my best friend of 25 years, potato chip fanatic, lover of the book series Outlander, and bargain shopping queen. I am a bit sarcastic (okay a lot), love to be silly with little kids all the way up to my high school seniors, and I can be a bit talkative. My creative brainstorming can seem to be crazy idea at the time but I promise once you see the ending result you will take a peek into what makes me tick and hopefully love the images that were created from it.
I specialize in photographing children, families, and high school seniors and have been in business for almost eleven years from starting in Oregon to now being located in Iowa. I’ve had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember. My journey with photography first began when I was a little girl flipping through my Grandma’s photo albums for hours, to helping my dad who also had the photography bug and learning how to use his Nikon from the early 80’s (which just happens to now sit on my mantle in dining room…love that camera).
I love working with high school seniors, I think that everyone deserves to get to feel like a king or queen the day of their session. I start brainstorming with my seniors months in advance to ensure they get the images they have always imagined. I want their personalities, and the passion for what they love (sports, books, hunting, dance, ect) to shine through the images.
When working with families I want to catch children playing, laughing, jumping, crawling, running, or even at times pouting…just letting them be kids. I want to capture these memories we make because lets face it memories fade with time.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope to hear from you soon!
