Images you love

I know, I know…
You’re probably waiting to lose a few pounds, or grow your hair out, wait for a special occasion, or perhaps you’re just not feeling like your best self, these days. 
Well, guess what?  The people who love you – love you exactly as you are! They’re not seeing your “flaws”, but see the beautiful, cherished person that you are. And you are simply too important, too loved & too uniquely beautiful to fade away.  So, exist in photographs… for your loved ones, and for yourself.




Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful

Sitting in front of Debbie Thornton’s camera was an amazing experience. I had no doubt the finished product would be beautiful, but the actual experience was surprisingly fun. Debbie brings a warmth and feeling of mutual love and respect to her work that is so comforting. We laughed about our physical flaws and celebrated the beauty sometimes hidden beneath the gray hairs, extra pounds and wrinkles. I felt cared for, respected and loved in such an important way. She has tricks up her sleeve to help even the most camera shy woman come out of her shell. Thank you Debbie for making me feel beautiful!

Thank you for capturing my professional self so well! You are an absolute delight to work with! You are not only an excellent photographer with an artistic eye, but have such a lighthearted attitude which made the whole photo shoot experience relaxed and fun. In just a few hours I went from “I hate taking pictures” to “I’m having soooo much fun”. I think EVERYONE should experience a photo shoot with you, I can’t thank you enough!!

Hello Gorgeous!

Welcome to my little corner of the web, where I will risk being vulnerable, in hopes that you will, too.

Truth is: It’s not easy being seen.

As a woman in my 50s, with my weight and confidence changing with the seasons…I know, all too well, what it feels like to secretly crave beautiful photos of myself, yet hide behind the camera, not feeling good enough, thin enough, young enough, pretty enough, confident enough to let my self be seen!

That’s why I am passionate about creating a fun, pampering and empowering experience for my clients, where you will not only look beautiful, but FEEL beautiful, too…and come away with gorgeous images that you are proud to show off! 

So, if you are willing to risk being a little bit vulnerable with me, I promise you won’t regret it! 

I invite you to experience a portrait session with me – it will change the way you see yourself.
