I'm just a little ol' photo studio in Lubbock, Texas and completely passionate about my photography and the people I meet. I've owned Captivated Images since 2005 but my passion for photography has been with me my entire life.
My motto is "Do more than you get paid to do".
A little about me and my studio: I have a beautiful indoor and outdoor studio which is on 8 acres of land with all the fun props anyone could ever want. We have a ton of covered outdoor shooting space with a ton of sets behind our studio, a rain machine in our attached barn that we also use as another set. We have all the props anyone could ever need. My passion is my work and love every minute of every day that I get to do what I love. Most everything you see on my website are all taken at my studio.
I have a wonderful husband who spends his entire weekends working on my "to do list" for the studio and creating the most wonderful one of a kind sets and creations that I can imagine... he helps make my dreams come true. We have a son and daughter in law who both are amazing. our son is the Youth Pastor for Westminster Presbyterian Church and a gorgeous daughter in law who is earning her Masters Degree and our biggest blessing is Judah, our grand baby boy. He's the light of our lives and we are so blessed to be Dodo and Poppy!
I am a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) and have earned both my Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees from Professional Photographers of America. In 2015 I was named “Diamond Photographer of the Year” by Professional Photographers of America, the highest honor they bestow upon members. Also named "Platinum Photographer of the Year" in 2016 and 2018. I am also honored with receiving the Imaging Excellence Award in 2019 from the Professional Photographers of America. I have been voted Best of Lubbock 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019 and Best of the West 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019.
My other passion are my dogs. I am a Board Member of the Morris Safe House, a no-kill shelter in Lubbock. My dogs have become famous in their own right after being featured on successful calendars shot by me to raise money for Morris Safe House. They now have many fans and their own Facebook page.
