Years from now when your family looks for photos of you, what will they find...?


Hi, thanks for stopping by!  I'm excited to get to know you and can't wait to work with you.  A little bit about Dee ~ This business was created (with the HUGE help and support from my husband) from my love of 3 things:

1.) Helping women to see their own beauty, that they usually don't even realize is there.

2.) Helping to give the elderly VALUE to their life. To show them that their long life has truly mattered.

3.) PHOTOS. I love all things about photos - the main thing, is that they are our memories when that's all we have left of someone.

I love to help empower women through portraits, to show you beauty you may not even know you have, or have forgotten about with all of life's "busy-ness" and ALL you do. Beauty is all of you, right now, and is more than just the way you look. I want to show that to you, and that is what I refer to as CELEBRATING YOU!  


Beyond beauty, I believe STRONGLY in the power of photographs because they become our MEMORIES

when that's all we have left.

I want to help showcase you at this time of your life, I want to showcase your life and your value.  

One more thing I truly enjoy...teaching people about photography. I love to teach, and have been teaching students for years through the community education portion of the local community college. NOW I have added classes at the studio, for even better hands-on experiences for classes!
