Have other photography needs?
Not everyone needs an extravagant photoshoot, and I totally get that. That's why I'm here with a ‘catchall’ photography service, designed to cover the small things.Examples would include: a new employee at your job needs a quick headshot for the company website, your kiddo needs an updated photo for their hobby, or an event is coming up and your small group needs some photos to showcase what you do. Situations like this are fairly common, and I know from experience that a professional looking photo goes a long way. Reach out to me today so I can get you scheduled!$150 for 20 minutes | 5 images | 5-7 day turnaround time
Why I do this work.
While I dabbled in photojournalism when I worked on my university paper, it wasn't until after I gave birth to my oldest daughter that I saw how I could utilize those skills. Being a photojournalist is what has brought me joy. I love that I can document life and the divine bearers of life.
A bit about me.
I am a first-generation graduate from Wichita State University with a bachelor's degree in Political Science. I had both my babies at home, and they are made of the purest magic. I've been happily married for six years to my college sweetheart. But the best thing I have to offer is that I am annoyingly passionate about doing good for the sake of doing good, and I'll drag you along with me!
