About Me

Hey there!  I’m Sandy. So nice of you to stop by and get to know a little more about the girl behind the lens!


I am…

…a country girl married to a city boy
…a mom to one amazing little girl
…easy going and down to earth
…addicted to Pinterest (who isn’t?), DIY projects, and going on adventures with my daughter and my trusty little wiener dog, Piper.

I love random movie quotes.  If you know
any lines from Austin Powers, Anchorman, or Zoolander,
I’m pretty sure we could hang out.

I’ve got an adventurous streak in me that most people don’t know about.
I have always wanted to go hang gliding,
and there are a few other zingers on my bucket list.

I believe in drinking up as much as we can of what life has to offer,
trying new things and taking some risks, even if we fail
because life is too short to wonder what might have been.

It’s this kind of thinking that prompted me quit my job and
follow my dream of being a photographer.

I create fresh, modern, and
meaningful portrait experiences
for awesome people.

I strive to capture the inner light I see in each person.

I believe that a portrait experience
should be creative…uniquely you…and fun!

I feel incredibly blessed to do what I love.
This is my passion, and I am living the dream.

I chose the Red Lotus name because it is
a symbol of love, compassion, hope,
and the infinite potential within each one of us.
I infuse these ideals into my work
and the way I care for my clients.
