Why is it called “Raindancer Studios”?
In October of 2009, my business started after I posted a few photos of my daughter on Facebook after learning how to use my DSLR camera.
It was not planned and entirely an organic thing. People saw my photos and asked me to take photos of their kids and families.
I named it Raindancer Studios based on the quote:
“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.
It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
This quote was my mantra at the time in my life. This passion for photography became a breath of fresh air for me during a really difficult season of life.
This business was a gift from God to me and it showed me how to keep “dancing” – to keep looking for good and see beauty despite the crap.
I truly believe there is a purpose in the storms we face and that all things in life are used for our greater good.
My photos are a joyful gift that reminds others the sunshine always exists.
It’s usually hiding behind the clouds during a storm, but it’s still always there nonetheless.
The Mission & Purpose of Raindancer Studios
My mission in life is to be an encourager of others. I’ve been through several seasons of difficulty (torrential downpour and tornados) and I understand what it is like to struggle, to grieve, to experience loss, and to navigate each day trying to “dance in the rain” metaphorically. My hope is to lift up the women I meet and let them know they are loved and seen. My goal is to help create a stress-free photography experience where people can truly breathe and have some fun with each other.
My business exists to bless people (especially Moms) and to bring joy in the midst of this messy chaotic life. Life is so busy and disappointing at times. Mommin’ can be so overwhelming and hard. Days can be challenging and full of the unexpected. My photos are created to bring a little extra sunshine into your life no matter what season you are in- rain or shine! 😉
