My love of photography was born when I received my first camera at age 13.  It was the same year my mother presented me with my first subject – a fourth baby brother!  At the time, I never dreamed it could someday be my career.

Once I gave birth to my son and twin daughters, I was even more excited about photography.  My friends were so impressed with how well I captured their adorable expressions on film, that they began to bring their children to me so that they could get the same for themselves.  This was my motivation to pursue photography as a full-time career in 1989.  I was pleased to be able to design and build my own studio and portrait gallery in 1998.  Our studio walls display many samples of our work.  I invite you to come by for a complimentary portrait consultation.

My husband and I spend our spare time flying around the country to visit our grown children and the many grandchildren they’ve blessed us with.


Ariel has been with our studio for over 10 years. She began working here as a Saturday intern while completing her senior year at the University of North Texas.  She graduated with a BFA in photography and became a full-time employee the very next week!

She wears many hats at our studio.  She’s not only our staff photographer, but also our office manager, master photo retoucher, album designer, and resident dog whisperer.  Ariel loves dogs and has 4 of her own.  She and her husband, Evan, enjoy spending time hanging out at home with their three young children and all 4 dogs!


We first met Alesa when we started photographing her two-year old daughter, Grace, in 1991.  She and her family have come in every year since then and are amongst our most loyal customers.  When we heard she was looking for a new career opportunity, we hired her immediately and she’s now been with us for over 7 years. Alesa helps keep our studio life organized and managed, and assists our clients with their portrait selections.

She is an avid Cowboys and Stars fan.  She and her husband spend time with their grown children, Grace and Colin and one adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
