Kansas City and Lawrence

Photographer + Designer



A Kansas City photographer and designer who understands finding the right person for the job makes all the difference. You need someone with confidence, attention to detail, and one who is interested in your story.


Photo and design services that encompass a clean, colorful, and sophisticated look. I focus on bold colors and simple compositions in design as well as in photography. I love to create with a purpose.


You want a photographer who does more than work an expensive camera. You need a designer who understands principles and techniques. These are differences between professionals and those who claim to be. Choose wisely.

Hello there, it is nice to meet you.

I love to meet with new clients for an obligation-free consultation to discuss details over coffee or tea, maybe even some cookies. Have a pup? My consultations are dog-friendly. First, I will find out more about you- what are you hoping to get out of your session? Do you need a simple, affordable yet elegant website that will increase your business? Do you love documentary, candid photography or more traditional, posed photos? You will get to know a little more about me and my style too. Lastly, you will learn about the packages and services available, such as canvas wraps, albums, or website templates. Not sure if you want to sign at the time of the consultation? No worries. Take the information home and think about it, because choosing the right person for you is an important decision. In the meantime, take a look at the blog or visit the Facebook page to get familiar with my work.


My favorite subjects to photograph are couples, individual portraits, and photos needed for marketing your brand. Professional, high quality photos make all the difference in remembering that perfect moment 50 years down the road or the photo that brings your business a new client.


In my world graphic design is like creating the perfect recipe. From websites to logos, it is an exciting challenge to create just the right color, shape, pattern, or balance for that delicious dish. In the digital marketing world it is the first impression of who you are, the first bite of your brand.


Last September I began selling my Skyline designs and the business has taken off. You can purchase the prints on Etsy, find them in the Crossroads District or the West Bottoms in Kansas City. Take a look at the collection here.


I like to challenge myself outside of my regular sessions with clients and try something new with my photography from time to time. Last year I made a trip to Nicaragua with a non-profit organization as their photographer, and you can see and read all about our trip here.
