Hi, my name is Mindy.
I'm a Portrait Photographer specializing in High School Senior Portraits. I am located in Bellefonte, Pa., and service the Central PA region. My passion is capturing moments that will be treasured forever. I am a wife of 25+ years, mother of three grown children, and the daughter of someone that died at a young age. I know just how quickly life goes by and how important each precious moment is.
As a child, the very first family portrait we ever had was taken by my uncle. It was just a few years later that my dad died from leukemia. We had no idea that this would be the only family portrait we would ever have of all four of us. I was only 6 years old. As I grew, the pictures we had in our albums became my memories.
I was about 8 years old when I got my first hand-me-down camera. My wonderful mother must have spent a fortune developing all my Barbie Doll wedding photos and Cabbage Patch Doll family portraits. Little did I know that this would become my passion.
When I first decided to dive into this profession I already had three little ones running around. My husband, and biggest fan, supported me all the way (and still does). I have spent the past 10+ years doing what I love to do!
Over the years I've come to find that some of my favorite times as a Senior Portrait Photographer have been getting to know my clients. I love hearing about their hobbies and favorite sports, what their plans and dreams are for the future, and sharing in that special moment when they get their college acceptance letter! It makes each moment we spend together even more special. Each Senior I am blessed to work with holds a special spot in my heart and I rejoice in their accomplishments along with their parents. I am proud to call them all "My Seniors" and look forward to seeing what their futures hold for them.
Meet my family . . .

In May 2023, my husband and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary in Paris, France. We hired a professional photographer to do a portrait session for us. Even though neither of us really enjoys having photos taken, it was the highlight of our entire trip!
