Behind the Lens

about Me

I'm MATTIE

I fell in love with traveling as a teenager and quickly filled my passport with stamps from around the world.  Coupled with a love of learning about new cultures came a fascination with photography and capturing images of new people and places. 

When my first son was born, I decided to try my hand at taking some "professional" photos of him... what started as googling poses and buying a nice lens quickly turned into a passion.  That year, I took hours of classes and practiced on every person I could find!   

5 years and one baby later, I'm more and more in love with photographing smiles, laughs, emotions... I'm most excited to use my passion to help children around the world!  When I opened my business in 2017, my husband joined me as an assistant for weddings and we committed to donating 20% up front to help children and orphans.

Literally anything Mexican (chips & white sauce, please).  And Longhorn Parmesan chicken.  I think they sprinkle something addictive on top.

These guys. My husband, Zeko. Plus two more, my boys, Noah and Ezra.  Believe it or not, they are as fun as they are handsome. :)

Buying too much on Amazon. Watching Prison Break, Alias or shows about the CIA. And a really good pedicure.
