Transitioning from high school to adulthood runs the gamut of emotions - excitement, trepidation, happiness, fear; you're a bundle of nerves anticipating being an adult. My purpose is to capture all of that and create stunning memories. By having me come along for the ride, I am able to guide you through the whole senior photos process, from choosing the outfit to choosing the wall art, and you and your Senior can relax and revel in feeling special and like a star!
Fresh, Genuine, Authentic
Hi! I'm Myra
And I love being able to capture and tell someone's story through photography. Having been diagnosed at the age of 50 with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in 2016, I realized that my dream of becoming a photographer was not going to happen with ... just dreaming. After all tomorrow is never guaranteed, which is why it is all that more important to document our lives. We've only got this one life - live it well! You will also hear me talking about being a spirit junkie, how much I love iced coffee (I mean who doesn't?), and the MN Wild hockey team.
Something else I also love is the connection I make with the people I meet. We may start as strangers, but by the end of planning your perfect session, we will be friends (after all I am just a big kid - you'll find that out quick enough!). Natural, relaxed, down-to-earth …words I use to describe myself and my photography.
Contact me now to discuss this very special day, a priceless and timeless memento to be cherished for generations.
I look forward to discovering your story!
“Myra is fantastic! She did a “cousins” session with 3 of my boys and 3 of my nephews. She captured so many shots for us! She was so fun with them and so patient. I didn’t feel the need to apologize once for boys being boys. I should also mention that the youngest was just 3 months old and the oldest was 7. I highly recommend Myra!”
“Absolutely loved our fall photo shoot! Our pictures turned out amazing! We love Myra because she is fun, outgoing, and compassionate about capturing the best photo! I would highly recommend Myra. We look forward to many more photo shoots for years to come!”

PPA is another organization I am a proud member of to continue my education, stay up to date with latest trends and equipment, and a great place for the most up-to-date resources.
Shoot and Share Photo Contest
Another way I like to stay on top of the photography game, and challenge myself to learn and improve skills is entering photography contests. For the 2020 Shoot and Share contest, I went "all-in" and submitted 50 photos!
It takes courage
Putting your art out in to the world for everyone to see, takes a lot of courage. Especially for me as I put my heart and soul into every photo I take, and of course I love them all! To hear what someone else has to say isn't the easiest, but there is absolutely no better way to improve your craft than to listen constructive feedback.
