I’ve been happily married to a wonderful man for 33 years who supports my dreams and puts up with my randomness and creative obsessions. He can also willing to tag along on many of my photo sessions to assist me in various ways. I have two beautiful adult daughters who are married to some pretty cool guys. Downside….they live halfway across the country in Delaware and Florida. (Frequent flier miles, anyone?) I am also a proud Mimi to Jackson and Haverlee who frequently appear on this website. Mimi life is unbelievable. My little furry buddy, Chloe, keeps me company on a daily basis and is my editing partner.
I have been capturing images for 15+ years. I started off like many….documenting my own family and their activities along with taking some pictures for family and friends. In 2014 I made the leap to offer my services and give myself a creative, challenging outlet. Never did I dream it would grow into what it is today. I absolutely LOVE my job, the artistic process , trying new things and helping people capture their memories. One major side benefit to my business are the connections with clients who become friends and watching families and children grow.
My photography philosophy is simple…to freeze time. There are so many special moments in our lives. We want to preserve and remember them in the future. That’s where I come in…to capture the innocence of a baby, the playfulness of a child, the celebration of milestones and events or the important people in our lives. My aim is to make photo sessions fun and relaxed, providing you great pictures.
I primarily shoot in natural light in nature or urban locations. I prefer late afternoon/evening to take advantage of the beautiful golden light. I have used locations from Hesston to Wichita to Hutchinson to McPherson to Newton and in between. But I am always up for new locations. I also have a small studio for newborns and small children. You can also find me on the sidelines at our local high school taking pictures of football, basketball and track. I love trying to capture that perfect shot.
I thank my Lord, Jesus Christ, for blessing me with a pretty great life and the ability to continually push myself to learn more about Him and doing life in general. He’s pretty awesome.
Enough about me. I want to hear about YOU! Give me a call and we can discuss the possibilities for capturing YOUR special moments.
