About the Artist
Just a little background info on me. I was a military brat and moved many times but went to high school in San Antonio at MacArthur High School. I have a BFA from Texas Christian University in Ballet and a minor in Photography. After 2 years and a lot of sweat working the field of dance, I decided to change careers. Artistic Images was born in 1992 with the help and support of my parents, Penny and Sterling. After 4 years working out of their home, we purchased a 2 1/2 acre portrait garden and built my dream studio.
I am passionate about many things: my job, my family, my friends and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love coming to "work" everyday. I love photographing every aspect of life. From newborns to grandparents and every age in between, I feel very blessed that I am able to capture the milestones in people's lives. I feel fortunate to have a family and a team who supports me so much! What would I do without them??
I have a wonderful husband who helps me at the studio and is fabulous at housework :) I have 3 beautiful boys who keep me very busy when I am not at the studio. They are also terrific models and can often be seen in our marketing materials. While we have three wonderful sons, God gave us one very special one, Jacob. Jacob was born with a rare genetic disorder (Phelan-McDermid Syndrome) which keeps him at a 9 month old mental age. Jacob is a very happy boy, but having a special child gives us many challenges that keep us constantly adapting our lives, personally and professionally.
We are a Christian family who is active at our church and feel that God has blessed us everyday with the wonderful gifts that He has given us. We strive everyday to follow God's principals in our lives and our business. We hope that everyone who comes to visit us at Artistic Images sees evidence of our passion for life!
