Let’s create photographs that stop time.

Life happens in the blink of an eye. If we’re not watching, it’s gone before we know it. Let’s slow down and stop time together. Let’s take time to savor being together with families, friends and loved ones. Let’s take time to create tangible memories that prove life happened here, that we loved and were loved and lived this crazy, chaotic, beautiful thing we call life. Let’s spend time creating photographs of your life, right here, right now, before life happens and it’s all gone.



Hi there, I’m Renee

I usually have a smile of my face and can be found telling the goofiest “Dad Jokes”. I love dessert, Kansas sunsets, puns, strong coffee (with cream and sugar, of course) and pretty much everything about this crazy life.

because when you stop to look around, life is pretty amazing.
