Hello and welcome to my website! I hope you enjoy some examples of my work and would love the opportunity to work with you on creating something special and timeless. Photography is a true passion of mine. I receive so much joy from the entire process of being a photographer from the initial consultation with my clients to the smallest of details to prepare for their session day.
As a young adult, I managed various portrait studios but disliked the creative restrictions that come with working for a company. When I had my first born, I wanted so badly to expand my photography skills from average to amazing. Over the years, I have gravitated toward more of a fine art style which is awe inspiring! The better my digital editing skills became, the more creative release I found.
Always having admired those talented enough to draw and paint beautiful pieces of art, I sadly could not create on canvas what I envisioned in my head. Honing in on my actual skills and abilities, I now create wonderful works of art through digital editing. Now whatever I can dream up can be created through compositing multiple images together!
Thanks to Pony Go Round and their sweet ponies, these beautiful dream sessions are a reality! Each mini session we put on is uniquely themed for an amazing and different experience every time! Children get to interact with a real pony during their session, then get to meet all the pony's in the pony pen for unlimited play! Be sure and follow me and Pony Go Roundon social media for information on what theme we are coming up with next. Spaces fill up for these extremely quickly, so don't miss out!
We are currently booking spots for our Christmas mini sessions where kids get to not only get their portrait taken with a "Reindeer" Pony, but Santa himself!
I have started an Ambassador's program which is a total win win for myself and the Ambassadors! I get these really incredible ideas for styled photo shoots quite often. I also enjoy exploring the mountains in my area and find breathtaking locations I yearn to photograph at. I add these to my list of places to take clients but nobody really understand the beauty of some places without seeing examples first. I will call on my Ambassadors to use as models for marketing and advertising upcoming mini sessions and special locations. They get free portraits and I get to create cool photos!
There is no “one right way” in photography. There are many different ways to accomplish a variety of unique looks and styles. It comes down to the photographer's abilities, main style and what the client wants. I like to accommodate as much as possible for each of my clients. My favorite time of day to shoot portraits outdoors is within the last 2 hours before sunset or within the first 2 hours of sunrise. Something about the warm glow from the sun on the skin and the strikingly beautiful colors painting the sky are breathtaking.
Studio Photography is nice especially when working on creative composite images as the lighting is controllable to suit the desired overall look. I have traveling equipment that I bring to my clients wishing to do studio styled shoots, or find a nice place outdoors in a shaded spot with reflectors to manipulate the natural light. This is really up to the outdoor weather and desires of my clients. The best part of being able to offer this service to my clients is when the weather is unfavorable outdoors for small children or those with health issues, it is nice to be able to still receive beautiful images from the comfort of your own home!
Booking your session is just the beginning of our adventure together! The planning of your day down to the last detail can be exciting when you have the right person guiding you.
From wardrobe coordinating to location setting, I will be there with you every step of the way! Between your initial booking to the day of your session, you will always have a creative soul to bounce ideas off of. I do have an ever growing client closet and am open to discussing trade deals for anyone purchasing their own gown or special outfit for a session with no plans on using it again.
Boudoir is a type of session that really requires someone that a client feels comfortable with. Choosing a photographer that will capture the most intimate of portraits and make any client leave the session feeling empowered about themselves is so much more important than I can ever express. Every woman out there has insecurities about themselves and contrary to what some may believe, indulging in a boudoir session and being able to see yourself in a different way is very freeing!
During the Christmas season, I offer special composite options which make wonderful holiday cards sure to be the biggest hit amongst friends and family! In addition to Christmas themes, through the year I will offer special mini sessions most of which will coincide with the overall them of that time of year such as the current season or upcoming celebrations like Easter, Independence day and Halloween!
