Welcome to Modern Studios Photography, the whimsical Children & Family Photographer in the Dallas, Arlington, Mansfield, Grand Prairie & Fort Worth Area. I specialize in themed portraits aimed at preserving childhood in a fun way. My Love of all things frilly, lacy, ruffly, eye catching and BIG are what this company is founded on. I have an expansive Couture Clients Closet for girls sizes 2/3- 12/14 that include some of my favorite designers.... Tutu Du Monde, Dollcake, Anna Triant Couture, Butterfly Closet and so many more!  I have a relaxed approach to my art which allows me to make connections with my subjects and capture moments that are spontaneous and real. I see the beauty in what's already going on and I love capturing it in a fun and expressive way. I also have an eye for themes, details and that WOW factor. I Think I have THE BEST job because I can often be found playing with Unicorns, fairies, mermaids and super heroes. I especially love to photograph my clients laughing and having a good time. That's when I know I’ve got something truly special!


When you look at your images, weather its in the expressions, props, poses etc.....I want you to remember how much fun was had creating these memories, not just what you looked like at the time. I enjoy telling a story with my pictures so I do well to express themes or a general tone in a shoot and I can really bring your vision for a family portrait or child milestone session to life!

My art is so much more than a portrait. I like to play with light and the tones in my photographs as well as airbrush and enhance. I include this service FREE to ALL of my clients with ANY session. I enjoy making pictures look their best. I've built this service into your pricing, so there are no hidden fees to transform your pictures into art.

I believe 100 years from now people should be able to tell what a person was like, just by looking at a photograph. Art through Photography is more than just a tagline for my company; it’s my philosophy and the foundation for every session I engage in. I want to invoke thoughts of personality and life when you look at my art. I believe that is what sets me apart from other photographers. People should be remembered and photographs provide memories. Beautiful ones.
