Tell me a little more about yourself
I was born & raised in Colorado and have lived in Erie for 25 years after growing up in Louisville. I have a Bachelor's in Fine Arts from CU & a Master's Degree in Education. My plan was to teach art after school. I ended up teaching for several years and then ran a preschool right here in Erie. While growing up I was a second shooter with my dad and his photography business, but really got into photography after the birth of my son in 2008.
I've photographed and studied all over the world and love seeing new places and meeting new people. I love camping and frequently pack up my family and little dog, Squirrel, to pull our camper and explore all over the USA! I love connecting with strangers; they often tell me fascinating personal things about their life.
Tell me about your business:
I own Make the Moment Last Photography here in Erie, Colorado. I specialize in Headshots, Personal Branding, and Luxury Portraits. I opened up my new studio in downtown Erie last year. The space has been so great for my business. I have multiple backdrops, professional lighting, and a complete wardrobe for my clients to choose from. In my personal branding sessions, I focus on not only making images beautiful but impactful and conveying your true personality or the personality of your brand and business.
For personal branding, the process is quite thorough from start to finish. We start with vision boards, discuss where & how to use your shots, and make a plan including full hair & makeup. One service I offer is a full image suite. For each photo you choose, I will create a variety of sizes, layouts, and formats to use throughout all your marketing.
My favorite part about being a photographer and entrepreneur is that every day is different! I love creating something new and beautiful that captures the person in front of my lens in a way they never would have imagined. I'll show you a shot or two, watch your face light up, and see your confidence soar! My secret sauce for getting amazing images is the connection and trust I build with you.
What do you love about having your business in Erie?
I love Erie because this is where I grew up. It's grown so much in the last 5 years. The business community is growing & the support here for business is at a whole other level. I love that Erie supports their own businesses well.
