I am not your typical photographer. You will not even come close to reading a line here that says, “I picked up a camera when I was 19 and I was hooked!” — Nope. You also won’t hear, “I started to photograph my first child and the passion just blossomed from there.”

Nope. I learned how to use a camera as photojournalist in the Air Force when I was over 28 years old and had two kids.

But, I’ve always been a true artist at heart. All those wild, deep needs to create from my core have been there since I remember painting with Crayola paints in preschool. (Yup, I remember the first time I painted on a standing canvas, even if it was a plastic one and I was 5).

So what I do now is combine my needs to create and to give to others and that’s why I create portraiture for families. There is nothing that drives me more than putting in trained, creative work and coming out with a beautiful keepsake for someone else to treasure for the rest of their lives.

That’s what I’m about. That’s why I’m a photographer

WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?  Family portrait sessions are photographed outdoors using sunset golden light. So, you session will be scheduled the hour and a half before sunset and last 30-45 minutes. All sessions that are photographed outdoors (family portrait and maternity) are photographed at my farm on 40 acres near Overbrook, Kansas. It’s private and easy for everyone! Outdoor sessions may be requested with a different location, with a driving fee added to the session price.

WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS OCCUR?  Newborn sessions are best done within the first 2-3 weeks after delivery but I like my families to have lots of time to settle back in with their new little one so I hope to do them most of the time in the second week.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? If you’d like styling advice then lets chat. I always say no logos and words and also flowy dresses do add some sweetness to images. For indoor sessions, stick to lighter colors.

HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED? I typically book one to three months in advance.
