Lifestyle Portraits for Newborns, Families, and Seniors

that Document this Cherished Moment in Time

and Allow True Personalities to Shine Through

Who Want A Photographer Who Understands The Power of a Moment

and How to Navigate the Unique Challenges of a Wedding Day

Tell me…

Is the last family photograph you took a selfie or are you way overdue for updated photographs?

Are you a mom who never finds herself in the photographs?

Now tell me this…

Would you love to capture this present moment in your children and “stop time” in a way that keeps their wings spreading and hearts exploring?

I don’t have to tell you that time flies by,

but I will tell you it’s time to catch these beautiful, raw, and sometimes messy moments in life so you always remember them for the treasure that they are.

Whether you’re looking for newborn, family or senior portrait sessions, my goal is to document this special moment in your life in all of its glorious wonder.

Let’s Have Some Fun and Get Creative

to Capture the Perfect Mix of Posed, Unposed, and Unpredictable Moments that Tell Your Story

Each portrait session is an adventure—we journey to your favorite location, some of my hidden faves based on years of experience and scouting, or tuck into the comfort of your own home. Then, we let loose and have fun in whatever surrounding makes you feel the most at home.

Your Shoot, Your Say!

Bring a meaningful pet or prop or tell me about a fun idea you have. Let’s highlight your authenticity and what makes you or your family special.

If it takes cracking a ridiculously cheesy joke to get kiddos to grin or me adjusting a flyaway strand of hair to help you feel comfortable and confident, I’m there to ensure you’re having a fun time and enjoying your experience.

As a mom of three boys and a photographer who has been in this industry for more than 10 years, I have a bag full of tricks and techniques to get young kids to cooperate or you to relax and feel at ease in front of the camera.

I strive to give you an incredible portrait experience. I will guide you through the preparations for the session to ensure that you feel excited and empowered to be yourself.

Photography is Personal and It Should Portray
What You Love and Value in Life

One of my goals is to learn more about you or your family so your passions and unique take on life inspire the images I capture.

“I have very different children and somehow Deanna was able to capture exactly who they are through her lens.”

Jody

"I know Deanna is probably best known for her wedding photography, but I personally used her for 2 of my 3 children’s senior pictures (the third will be done next summer). I have very different children and somehow Deanna was able to capture exactly who they are through her lens! She took the time to understand what they love and who they are and turned that into their senior pictures! I wouldn’t use anybody else!"

“Working with Deanna each year has become a highly anticipated event by our whole family.”

Michelle

She’s so much fun, our kids completely adore her and her photos are beautiful keepsakes to capture invaluable memories. I can’t imagine working with anyone else… we’re so thankful to have her as an extension of our family. Deanna did an outstanding job on our wedding photos and since then has become an extension of our family as she’s captured invaluable memories for us each year. From newborn pictures of our youngest to senior pictures of our oldest and annual family pictures in between, I can’t imagine working with anyone else. She is thoughtful, fun and happens to be an amazing photographer too!
