How did you get into photography?

My passion for photography started when I was a little girl, and continued to flourish throughout my primary years. I went on to the Missouri School of Journalism, and earned my bachelors in journalism with the emphasis in photojournalism. Four days after graduating college, I started working as a staff photographer for the El Paso Times. After photographing a bridal show for the newspaper, a bride called me asking me to photograph her wedding. I started my photography business full-time in 2009, and I started photographing families exclusively in 2016.

Do you process every image?

Absolutely. Each photo is processed, color-corrected, and lightly retouched as needed. As always, we offer special retouching when requested by the client.

Will we receive the digital images?

All of your edited, high-resolution photos will be available for digital download, along with the printing release. Some packages include a custom thumb drive. However, what our clients value most are our exquisite heirloom albums. What we hear over and over from them is that it’s an album they truly cherish, and they look at it with friends and family every time someone comes to their home. The album allows them to experience all of the wonderful moments again and again. Clients also tell me, “I love how YOU put the album together, because that becomes one less thing I need to do as a busy mom.”

Do you photograph posed family photos?

Yes! We know how valuable those photos are to you. Your photography session would not be complete without capturing casual posed photos of your family. We generally only take fifteen minutes to take the casual posed photos, because that’s the maximum about of time most young kids can sit still.

Can you recreate the images on my Pinterest board?

Pinterest is an amazing tool for getting ideas and getting ideas for activities during your photography session. When it comes to capturing genuine moments, it is best not create or force a moment, because it won’t look or feel authentic. Instead, we’d prefer that you are 100% yourself, and we will photograph the sweet, beautiful moments as they naturally unfold. Also, we’d rather create images that you would want other families to pin on Pinterest.

Do you have backup equipment?

Absolutely! We have at least two cameras on hand at all times, along with a wide variety of lenses and lighting gear.

What equipment do you use?

I use a Nikon D3 and Nikon D700 cameras, and I have a variety of prime lenses and gadgets and gizmos galore.

Are you insured?

Absolutely!
