Hi, I’m Dusty a follower of Jesus, wife, momma and photographer. I am incredibly passionate about my faith, family, life, love, people, and photography’s unique ability to savor all the precious details. Sometimes our lives get messy and chaotic in this fast-paced culture, but I love that photography slows me down long enough to enjoy, relive, & hold on to the beauty in all of it. I received my fine art degree in photography from Arizona State University and have had the privilege of photographing families, newborns, children, and seniors professionally for over 12 years. I am truly blessed to call my passion a profession and continue to pursue it with the love!

You have filled my heart with greater joy Psalm 4:7

A Few Fun Facts

I am the leading lady in a house full of boys and there is never a dull moment! I enjoy the rare treat of a warm, (somewhat) quiet bubble bath, a handful of cookies, and my favorite worship music. Coffee and Jesus in the morning is a MUST and I love to drink ice tea from a mason jar. I also love to wear work out clothes, but never make it to work out! When I am not working you can find me spending time with the love of my life and our two boys. Nothing means more to me than being with my family. I would love to learn how to country dance with my handsome hubby one day, and one thing that makes me smile from ear to ear is the sound of my boys giggling together!

I truly believe that capturing your story is what makes life so meaningful. It allows you to look back at all the blessings, and joy that makes your story unique! I love nothing more than photographing the laughter, smiles, little details, and all the love!

Dusty has been photographing my family for 10 years and has captured so many beautiful memories. She was amazing when my kids were toddlers making them laugh and smile and can also connect with my moody teenagers. Pictures can be stressful and Dusty always brings a calm friendly attitude and makes the photo session go smoothly! I would highly recommend Dusty to anyone who needs a photographer!! She is not only super friendly but professional and you will absolutely love the memories she creates for your family to cherish!  


Dusty has been amazing since day one. She has continued to capture photos of us for the past 11 years even though our family has been through many changes, Dusty has always been consistent in our life. She’s more than a photographer. She is a friend, she lovingly spends time getting to know the boys again, asking questions, laughing with them, and always bringing them a special treat. She has been kind and loving to me over the years, and always makes me feel like a million bucks at our sessions. I wouldn’t want anyone else taking our family photos, Dusty is family! 


Dusty has been photographing our family for 10 years! Every session we are blown away with how beautifully she captures our two boys‘ personalities and the love that we have for each other. These are the photos we share with our family, near and far, every Christmas and are hung up throughout our home. We love working with Dusty! She is not just our extremely talented photographer, she is also like family to us! 


Absolutely the BEST experience with headshots and work team photos ! Dusty is super professional and is able to find every person's good side. Since using Dusty, I get nothing but compliments! Not only do the photos turn out amazing but Dusty is the sweetest person to work with. She will always be my go to for photos and I will always refer her to anyone I know.  


We’ve been so fortunate to have Dusty capture some of our most special moments! From our engagement all the way to our baby girl’s newborn session, and so many special moments in between, Dusty always perfectly captures our family. She is always up for any of my ideas as well as coming up with her own amazing ideas for a great photo shoot! She goes out of her way to get the perfect shot and is great at making everyone relax and have a good time. We are so grateful for all the beautiful pictures she’s taken! 


Dusty is a phenomenal photographer. Not only does she always get the perfect shot of my family, but she makes us all feel comfortable with the entire process. My husband and I have used her for the past 12 years through an engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn, and family photos. As my boys get older, she captures their unique personalities perfectly. If you are looking for priceless photos of your family, you can't go wrong with Dusty.


Dusty’s talent for photography is one-of-a- kind, so of course we had her capture our newborn daughter’s first photos. Our baby girl was not the typical, sleepy newborn, but Dusty handled her so well. She held our baby girl in her arms and gently rocked her to sleep so that she could capture some of those precious newborn poses. We were so happy with the photos. Dusty has an eye for capturing amazing, beautiful family moments.


Dusty has photographed two very special moments for us.  The photoshoot took place on a very hot day. My husband, son and I were sweaty, and growing impatient. Dusty had the best attitude as she remained patient with us and kept a smile on her face the entire time. I also got stung by a bee during the photo session and Dusty was so caring. She made sure I wasn’t showing any signs of an allergic reaction. Through it all, Dusty managed to capture the most beautiful photos and moments for our growing family.


Dusty has been taking pictures for us since Hazel was a week old. She is the most gentle, patient, kind soul you’ll meet and also has bribes stashed away in her bag for my kids. Taking family pictures with 4 kids 5 years and under (and a husband who hates taking pictures) isn’t for the faint of heart but Dusty manages to capture us beautifully. If you’re in the Phoenix area I highly recommend! 


Dusy is simply the best. We've had the privilege of having her photograph our family since we were pregnant with our oldest daughter, over twelve years ago! She truly captures the joy in our hearts, and each of our personalities. Thank you, Dusty, for always capturing our memories so perfectly, so we have them to look back upon throughout the years. We love you!


Taking family pictures can be stressful and usually is. Dusty makes it fun, the kids laugh and in just a few minutes Dusty has taken so many great shots. She does it all quickly and somehow captures all 26 of us looking at the camera at the same time! Dusty has captured beautiful memories of our family year after year.
