MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE…
is fun-loving…expressive…and timeless.
I LOVE capturing the authentic connection, love, and joy in relationships.
Candid interactive photos are my passion, but I always get a few classic pics with everyone smiling and looking at the camera, too.
(You know, because Grandma HAS to have one of those!)
I prefer a classic bright editing style & include a mix of color & black and white photos.
I love encouraging people & creating photos that will bring you joy!

WHY “RAINDANCER STUDIOS”???
In October of 2009, my business organically started after I posted a few photos of my daughter online. 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.”
At that time in my life, this quote was my mantra and photography became a breath of fresh air for me during a difficult season.
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 meant to be a gift that reminds you the sunshine still exists during times of rain.
I’d love to connect with you! Feel free to reach me here.
