We view ourselves as partners with our customers, our employees, our community and our environment. We aim to become a nationally recognized brand name, capitalizing on the visual nature of the human experience. Our goal is moderate growth, annual profitability and maintaining a sense of humor while providing an extraordinary product. Philosophy:  We believe that heirloom products begin with clean, images with strong emotional impact. These images can then be enhanced  and combined to create imaginative art that brings out the ‘you’ as you dream yourself to be, both now and in the future. We want our subject to truly ‘shine,’  and our products to be the art that you’ll be proud to hand down to future generations.

She developed an interest in photography in 1999, and her photos were first published by F&W Media in 2003. As an avid learner, she is constantly seeking out new information, tools and techniques to improve her photography skills and take her images to a new level. “I am constantly in a creative state, often becoming inspired by typical everyday events and expressions. Sometimes I think that the creative side of my brain is in hyper-drive, but when I focus on photography, I’m able to reign in some of that energy and put it to good use.” Nancy specializes in expression.  Whether it’s for family, children, high school seniors or  professional head shots her goal is an expression in the portrait art that draws the viewer in, while revealing the subject’s true personality. Nancy also has an extensive background in teaching workshops both online and in person. She is the author of two books and numerous ebooks. Photography workshops are available in the studio for both the avid and beginner shutterbug. When not spending time in the studio, Nancy leads a busy life as a wife, mother and full time employee with the City of Thunder Bay.
