I have been a professional photographer for over 35 years. I received my Associates degree in photography at Hawkeye Institute of Technology. I have worked in Iowa, California & Washington state for a variety of portrait studios and color labs prior to opening my own business. My work "Doors & Windows of Prague" exhibited at the National Czech & Slovak museum. I use professional Digital SLR, medium format & 35 mm film cameras.
I have a full service portrait studio in Yelm. We have a 5 1/2 acre private property with a variety of sets for outdoor photography. I love to go out on location to your favorite park or home. I specialize in portraits, weddings, special events & sports photography. We do portraits of high school seniors, family, children, newborn & pets.
There is an art & skill to posing someone to look natural. It takes talent to get someone to relax & bring out of them their true personality, not just the mask they show everyone. Add the element of lighting it beautifully to make people look their best to create a portrait of someone rather than just a "picture". So why not be remembered for looking your best. Contact us & we can go over best clothing choices & other tips on making the best of your portrait. Call today for our portrait specials.
At weddings the importance of having a experienced professional can not be stressed enough. Weddings are by nature chaotic and have so many details to the day. We organize and pose the group photography in a timely fashion and create romantic classic portraits that you will cherish for years. Capturing the candid moments of all the emotions of the day is what we do best. It is so beautiful to watch the expressions of love between 2 people and it is a great joy for me to capture that moment forever We bring backup equipment, studio lights, flash and reflectors for any lighting situation. I do both traditional & my partner does the candid photography for weddings. Give us a call to schedule a time to see our beautiful wedding albums. We have all sorts of packages to suit your budget.
