I started in photography as a young girl with my first camera at the age of 5. Growing up, I began helping my mother with weddings and learning everything she could teach me. After my children were born, I knew this was the career I wanted. I went back to school and opened my studio in 2001 and have been working ever since to improve my craft and learn as much as I can!
I love coffee, chocolate and a good novel before bed! I have found reading helps open my mind to all possible creative opportunities that help me with my creative Fine Art projects It is my goal to create images that show the personality and the family relationships with the children, families and seniors I have the privilege to photograph. To add to this, I create images that will be enjoyed for generations through custom sessions and printed products and wall portraits. I have developed a love for Creative Fine Art portraits. They are a wonderful way to create images in a world of imagination and images just for the challenge and fun of it!
Currently, I live southwest of Plevna, Montana on our family ranch with my husband and our 3 children. I have the privilege of the best of both worlds! My studio is located in Plevna but my office is at our ranch. I have the opportunity to travel for destination weddings as well as family portraits and seniors.
I am a member of the Montana Professional Photographers Association and currently the President. I am also a member of the Professional Photographers of America. In 2014, I became a Certified Professional Photographer; 1 of around 2000 in the United States. It is my goal to learn through mentoring, competition and various educational opportunities. Currently, I am almost to my Master of Photography Degree and working towards my Craftsman Degree.
