ABOUT

About me – Who Am I?
I am…
a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, and…a photographer.
I am…
a chocolate addict. Don’t exercise as much as I should. Not shy. Very optimistic. Sometimes forgetful. I cry as well as laugh at myself…a lot.
I am…
the most comfortable when I am barefoot in jeans and a t-shirt. Totally casual is my favorite attire!
I am..
Inspired by music and love all genres. Impulsive and creative. Quote collector.
I am…
usually up by 5:00 every morning. I am my most creative in the early morning quiet of a new day. (like mother, like daughter)
I am…
a dreamer. Dreams don’t always come true but, still, I dream.
I am…
passionate about photography. I love to capture the gleam in a babies eyes when they hear their mommies voice, Seeing a child’s fearful glances turn into smiles and giggles make me smile. A senior who let's go and has fun while being photographed warms my heart. A Daddy’s tear when he sees his little girl about to become someone else’s forever love, tugs at my heart.
I am…
BLESSED! I can truly say, I do what I love, and I love what I do!

Life is good! Keep on smiling!

FAQ's & TIPS

If you are looking for the perfect shot to last a lifetime such as weddings, children, family or a special scenic shot then contact me.
Even the oldest building with nature taking its place on the land is a beautiful scene against the Iowa landscape. Although I am not native to Iowa, I enjoy every minute while “setting the scene” for my next shoot. Nothing energizes me more than exploring locations, finding the hidden potential in a sunset, a garden flower, or a deteriorating building.
Whether you want a landscape image printed and framed for your home or office, or you need a current photograph of yourself and family, I hope you will call on me to help make that happen.
Your session should be a memory that you will not forget.

Below are some frequently asked questions:

Q - Where will we take the pictures?
A - Your choice. I have a small studio set up at my home or we can go to your choice of locations. Don't know exactly what you are looking for? Let me help! I find it challenging and yet fun to go out and find a perfect spot for our session.

Q - How many outfits should I bring?
A - As many as you want. Keep in mind most sessions are an hour or less but, we can always add more time if we are having a blast, right?

Q - Should I wear extra makeup?
A - Yes, and bring it along in case you need to freshen up!

Q - For a group session, should we wear the same colors?
A - This is up to you but I will add, coordinating colors will make for a much better quality of shot. If you need some advise, call me.

Tips - Make sure your fingernails are clean and polished or clear, I suggest if you need a haircut to do so at least a week prior to photo session, bring me those babies at their happiest hour of day, try to avoid stripes and for glass glare a good tip is to remove your lenses or borrow a set a frames from your provider.

The Q & A list could go on and on. Call me, let's discuss any questions or ideas you have. You know the old saying," two heads are better than one."
