I've been waiting for you!

Say hi to your forever photographer 

I arrived in the U.S. in 2011 with $3k in my pocket and a suitcase. That's how my story begins.

I met my husband in 2008 while studying at South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota. We fell in love, and three years later, I moved to Sioux Falls! 

I opened my business in 2012 with $300 and lots of hope. I loved photography and wanted to learn how to take better photos. Little did I know I was going to find my true passion! 

Come explore my life in the U.S., my passion for photography and my experiences with my clients. I am so glad you are here!

Hi, I'm Patricia – but you can call me Patty!

I'm a Mediterranean girl with salty hair and sun-kissed skin living life in the Midwest. I want you to have the best time with me — either at my studio or on location.

I'm obsessed with Starbucks Coffee, warm hugs and long summer sunsets.

My studio is my place in heaven. My camera is my safety net. My models and clients bring me the most joy.

There is nothing I like more than being there creating. It makes the bad days better. It makes the cloudy days less cloudy, and it makes the South Dakota winter more enjoyable.

I want you to have the best time with me — either at my studio or on location. I want you to discover a portrait experience that explores and celebrates your beauty. I want to uncover the person you have always dreamed of seeing in photos.

When you visit me, you're not only coming for a highly professional photo shoot, but also a journey to discover yourself.

You are so ready for this!

It's not about the destination. It's all about the journey.

So what's next?

I'm here to guide you to a place where you can freeze time, be happy, and get great memories out of the deal. 

I have a super power. I can freeze time. I can make you young forever. I can stop your children from growing up so fast.

Time goes by faster than we can keep up with. I am here to slow that. 

My customers value the power of memories. The effect of fine art.
The candid photographs and that moment where everything
is perfect — even if it's just for a second. 

I offer top-tier on-location and in-studio photography, specializing in children, professional branding and high-fashion maternity
to make you look your best!

All packages include help with styling. Hair and make up can be purchased as an add-on.

Your time with me will be fun, enjoyable and pleasant. Whether we are taking your professional headshots or your family photos, stress is never part of the equation.

We will have a fun time that everyone will remember as a happy moment, because guess what? You can't show real happiness in photos if you aren't real happy when we hang out!

Never, ever grow up

Honesty is key no matter the conversation

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them

Love and kindness are never wasted

Community over competition

My business is part of me. And as a part of myself, I drive it with the same values that drive my life: 

My passion (and biz) is fueled by hard work, honesty and fairy dust .

It's not just heart-shaped confetti and creativity that excites me.
