Hi, I'm Betsy.
I am a mother of four adult children and grandmother to five granddaughters. I picked up my first SLR camera when my son was born in 1980, and have never put it down. I am also a retired high school photography teacher who just doesn't want to stop taking pictures of children and families. I started my career teaching elementary school, but the last seventeen years were spent teaching electives in high school. Having raised four children, I look back and wonder where the time went. I took all my own photographs, and when I look at the quality of photograph, I realize I've come a long way as a photographer. I also realize that my photos were really lacking the POP and the WOW factor! It makes me sad because of all those images, I really don't have that I would consider "frame.-able" for my living room wall. That is why I am here for YOU! Life happens quickly. Don't let it slip by. Don't be like me and wish you had some good images of your family for the wall. Now is the time to do your family's portrait.
Whether you were referred to me by a friend or found me on Google, Instagram or Facebook, I am so grateful you are here.
Why am I passionate about taking portraits? I realized I didn't have any images of myself with my mom or dad and now they are gone. Oh, how I wish I had taken the time to have someone document individual images of my parents and me. And I only have one image of my whole family taken when I was ten years old.
Don't take the chance of not getting memorable images immortalized. Through the eye and camera lens of a professional photographer, those memories will be preserved for you, your children, and grandchildren to see. I have been photographing people for over forty-two years. My photography provides a unique way of capturing those important memories and events in our lives. Call me. 559.634.0156
If you are looking for a fun, full-service photographer,
I am willing to travel to you and your desired destination!
