I have been a photographer forever. I began at my high school yearbook, and used photography to earn my way through college. I took a break to raise a family (and to take their pictures) until the advent of digital photography.
I got back into the business as Prairie Creek Portraits in 2004. Since then, I have been taking family and senior portraits.
Along the way, I joined the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), the Texas PPA organization and the Dallas PPA chapter, which we call a 'Guild'. I have attended the 'Texas School of Professional Photography', where I have been able to learn from the best photographers in the world nine times, learning something totally new and different in each class.
Prairie Creek Portraits offers a wider variety of traditional wall canvas and metal prints. I will shoot bridal portraits, but I do not do weddings. If you need a wedding photographer, I suggest that you check out www.dallasppa.com where you can find dozens of great wedding photographers.
Over the past two years, I have added two new names and brands, to focus on different types of clients and their needs.
The Not Just Headshots brand is for anyone who needs a professional headshot. It is also for models and actors who need headshots, and fashion photographs for their agency listing, 'look books' and 'comp cards'
While Prairie Creek Portraits offers wall prints, albums, many are looking only for images to post on social media or to share with friends. Onelightportraits offers simpler images in file sizes intended for sharing. Minimal photoediting will be added and you won't find a studio logo on these images.
