behind the scenes
I truly thrive on capturing the “in between” moments; the candid, intimate expressions of your loved ones that tell the story of your lives.
I am a storyteller. All my life I have had an intense love of reading, writing, and documenting stories of all kinds. That passion has evolved and eventually manifested itself into the creativity of my photography and design. Each photo and every design is made to tell your story and create a portal to a moment in time; a memory you may have otherwise forgotten.
I truly thrive on capturing the “in between” moments; the candid, intimate expressions of your loved ones that tell the story of your lives. Real life. Your story. Let’s make art together!
I am a Business Administration graduate of Lincoln Christian University. I began freelancing design services in 2010 and with the birth of our beautiful daughter in 2014, decided to make my side job into a career! Now I’m a work-at-home momma and entrepreneur—I am living the dream! My husband, Andrew Draughan, also works with me in the business. He is a Veteran and Warrant Officer 1 in the Army Illinois National Guard, works another full time job and lends his photographer’s eye when I need a second shooter.
We have adorable two year old daughter, Sydney, a Shiba Inu dog, Niko, and two purebred Arabian horses, VW Desert Knight (Desert) and Zenetti WEA (Zman). We love the outdoors and hiking - particularly with our cameras! - and visiting Colorado as often as we can!
Want to get in touch? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on social media! I am based in Springfield, Illinois but work nationwide. I would love to speak with you about your upcoming projects!
