About

Who We Are

We are a husband and wife professional imaging company with the goal building long-term relationships with our clients and creating unique, high-quality products and services that provide value and create lasting heirlooms. We started in 2009 as a side business and have expanded into a full-time business with plans to continue our growth and expansion.

About Rick

I am a professional photographer, visual storyteller, and digital artist with the passion to create unique images.   I have extensive business experience, having recently left the Corporate world to continue to improve and expand our business.

I feel it is important to offer our clients a full-service experience that consists of partnering together, creating, and delivering an end to end solution based on your unique requirements and needs. This means we work collaboratively with you through the process of conceptualization through final product.

My experience includes photographing sports action (beginner through professional), teams and individual portraits, families and individual portraiture (seniors, headshots, graduations, engagements), commercial photography, and special event photography.  My photos have been published in the Indianapolis Star and other media outlets throughout Indiana. Our work has also been published in many of our commercial and event clients’ publications, social media, and marketing campaigns.  We have been honored to serve hundreds of organizations and families with our sports, teams, and portraiture services.

Examples of my work can be found in the portfolio pages on this site.

About Liz

Liz has extensive experience in handling our day to day operations, coordinating and assisting with photoshoots, customer service, and ordering. Liz has held a number of volunteer positions over the years working for not-for-profits and within the medical industry. Her personality for caring for people shows in everything she does.

Probably her toughest job has involved over 33 years of keeping Rick and her two grown boys in line.

For our senior clients she offers a “mom’s perspective” on the images we take and is instrumental in ensuring we are capturing your family’s unique requirements.

On photoshoots she has a keen eye for spotting photo opportunities, posing and ensuring we are meeting your requirements and keeping everyone engaged. She is also critical to our success in creating amazing and unique images by ensuring our subjects and their families are comfortable and relaxed.
