About Us

Photo {light} + Umbra {shadow}

Welcome! With over 20 years of photography experience and 13 years in business, I'm confident that your portrait experience with Photoumbra Studios will be a fantastic one!

My love for photography began in high school and continued into my college years. I graduated from the University in Utah with an Art History degree with a special emphasis in photography in 2001. After winning several college level competitions for my photography, I had the opportunity to live in Italy and tour Europe where my understanding of the art of photography further deepened.

Upon returning home from Europe, I taught photography at Salt Lake Community College for four years while assisting professional photographers on various types of shoots. I also worked for the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and then managed an art gallery in Park City. In 2004, I finally realized my dream of opening my own studio.

The success of my studio drew attention of several national photographers and it was featured in Professional Photographer Magazine, Chic Magazine and several popular blogs including Seniorologie and Inside the Locker. Our special blend of fashion-styled shoots using the best in professional lighting and posing techniques, has made Photoumbra Studios one of the most sought after portrait artists in Utah and surrounding states.

Family and graduation portraits have come a long way since I started photographing over 20 years ago and I'm proud to be among master photographers who know how to properly use natural and artificial light to create beautiful and timeless imagery. 

Let us make you feel special and create some portraits that you and your family will cherish for a lifetime!
