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 editing style with a mix of color & black and white.
I love serving the world by encouraging people & creating photos that will bring them joy!
Check out the video below to see my photography in action.
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 believe there is a purpose in the storms we face and that all things in life are used for our good.
I believe there is sunshine always waiting beyond the clouds and photos are a gift to remind you the sunshine still exists during times of rain.
PS. Here are a few photos of my daughter, Kylie, and I dancing in the rain of 2013. I’m pretty sure this was one of our most favorite days ever!
I’d love to connect with you! Feel free to reach me here.
