M eet your High School Senior Portrait Photographer.
Positions held (most still in use): daughter, sister, wife, Mom, Aunt, airplane washer, web designer, photographer.
Located in Parker, I photograph mainly high school students in the Denver area out on location in the metro area. I specialize in custom portraits for high school seniors, families, and headshots.
I’m the mother of two amazing adults – a stunning daughter who is now married and has their own little boy (a future senior for me!) and a handsome son. The best of both worlds! Married to the most amazing husband of 30 years. I served in the military (US Navy), have a graphics design degree from the University of New Mexico, and work full-time as a web designer with 25+ years of graphic design experience.
I learned the basics of photography from my dad, who worked in the newspaper for 20 years and was a hobbyist photographer. He learned the craft from his father, a professional photographer of nature and animals, and taught photography at a community college. I was on the photography/yearbook staff in school but then pushed it all aside for a military career and family life.
I jumped back into photography with a ‘point and shoot’ camera and knew quickly that I wanted to take my photography to a whole other level than my Grandfather and Dad took theirs. Since I am a graphic designer who likes to design her own Christmas cards, photography was a side piece of what I created for a card one year that turned into a full-time business for clients who want specialized, personal cards and grew from there. I believe that I didn’t find photography. Photography found me.

I don’t have ‘clients’ – I have friends that let me capture their memories and I become a part of the family. My extended family grows all the time. It’s huge.
The reunion is going to be fun!
