I first picked up a “fancy” camera in high school yearbook class and discovered my love of photography. I started back when we used real film and then learned to process in a darkroom in college. Working as a professional graphic designer for many years, I continued dabbling in photography. I shot food, flowers, people, pets, hotels, churches, you name it. I love design, but was most fulfilled when behind the lens. In 2015, I combined my love of design with photography and discovered I LOVE senior photography! My experience as a designer gives me the expertise to create custom pieces including heirloom quality prints, photo books, announcements and more.
My goal is to capture each person's spirit and personality through the lens — to create memories of a special season or event in your life. I strive to make each session fun and easy. I want you to be comfortable during your session, to have FUN and LOVE your portraits! My photography and editing style are simple and classic.
Please scroll through the galleries to see samples of my work.
Sessions are outdoors in natural light. Each session includes a pre-shoot consultation to discuss your needs, wardrobe if you need help and to decide the perfect location.
Locations vary in the Kansas City/Johnson County area. Shoots are scheduled in the morning or evening for the best light.
