The Best Version Of You

That's what we call it.  We want to portray the very best version of you.  Who you are. What you are. What you love.  We want to create timeless works of art that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

Our Story

In the beginning... Isn't that how all great stories start? haha

In the beginning I started this company while I was a stay at home mom.  My husband was badly injured at work and was off for a couple of years with doctor appts. and incredible pain.  Our finances took a dive and soon bankruptcy and tears filled our days.  I needed to help bring in money.  I had to stay home with my kids who by this time I was homeschooling and I had to take care of my husband.  I studied theater Arts and I wanted to do something that would allow me to dream and create. I have always loved photography and studied it for a little while so I did my research and started up my business.  That was over 11 years ago.

Today I am still very excited to capture your special moments. I specialize in High School seniors and Commercial work.

Meet the Team

We are small but mighty! We are fluent in sarcasm and movie quotes.  We love music and all things creative! We love animals and people alike! We love to dance and have fun!

Lovely Assistant

Our strong, silly and fun loving assistant that helps with all sessions (except boudoir ;)) He is a high school senior and has an entrepreneurs mind and spirit.  It is truly a privileged to have him helping out.

He loves guitar and is self taught. He loves video games (as most guys do) He loves trucks and race cars.  He likes watching football games and is very active.  He can always be seen running, skate boarding, riding his bike around town. Be sure to wave and say hi!

Owner/ Photographic Artist


Creative, caring and full of ideas! Those are a few of the words people use to describe me.  I am a mom of 4 kids, 3 dogs, 1 cat and no plants because a combo of the heat and my natural black thumb kill all plant life. I am the living definition of a million tabs open at once.  I have a new exciting idea about as often as someone breaths. I love adventure and I love seeing how people work.  Recently I have started sharing my knowledge through web classes and mentoring.  I love it.  I am a natural born teacher.  I love explaining the why and how and seeing the light bulb pop on in someones mind.  I love to talk... so don't get me started! haha
