I've been a photographer most of my life but started taking photos professionally in 2009. Doing photography full time was always a long time dream of mine and I feel blessed that I'm now able to live my dream. I enjoy helping businesses look professional and helping families preserve memories for generations. I'm internationally and nationally published and sell my fine art world-wide.
I love going to different places, meeting people, and learning more about the client, clients business, ect. I love to make people smile. There's too much negativity out there so I want to spread positivity with photos that make people happy and help businesses to look professional.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
In my years of doing this, I have a broad range of photography experience. Fine art; Real Estate photography and walk through videos; Commercial photography (office buildings, action photos (employees working), products, ect); Portraits (headshots, families, seniors, newborn, ect); Product photography (jewelry, food, crafts, flowers, ect); Weddings; Events (birthday, anniversary, graduation, ect). I consider every photo session I do special and I want to make each of them different so they are unique for that business/client.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
My fine art has been sold world wild. I've had 2 photos internationally published in a women's art magazine based out of Germany, and one of my local urban photos of Springfield Missouri was featured in a national doctors magazine. My photos are also displayed in various offices/hotels throughout the US and in spring of 2022 one of my images will be coming out as a USPS postage stamp.
