About Me:

Born in Wabash, IN I have lived in Pierceton all of my life. I was the middle child with two sisters.  I met the love of my life in junior high, and married this amazing man in June of 1991.  We have been blessed with 3 beautiful children Kirk 28 and his wife Tiana, along with our 2 grandchildren Kelsie Alexandria 8, grandson Elias Leland 5 months, Karissa 26 and husband Jordan along with our 2 grandchildren, Lillian Grace 2 and Landen Eugene 8 mo.  Kaycee 21 who is a Junior  at Purdue Fort Wayne. Our family is growing we are so blessed.  

We also have 2 adorable four legged kids Benson (Rottie), Maggie (Golden)  who we adore.

My first job in photography was with Lifetouch a national school picture company in 1992.  Fast forward a few years, with a medium format camera, a tripod and God's outdoor canvas Studio 13 Photography was born in August of 1998.  For 10 years you could find Studio 13 in downtown Pierceton. But in 2008 I moved the studio home.  Studio 13 Photography is in their 20th year of serving the Kosciusko Community and surrounding counties. In this new season of having an empty nest I have decided to cut back on booking sessions.  I will only be booking a limited amount of sessions per year.  I will post in early January a more accurate timeline. I'm so blessed to have a career that I truly enjoy and the forever friendships I've made over the years.

Thanks for visiting and I'm looking forward to meeting you.
