Hi! I’m Missy.
I’ve been working as a professional photographer for 15 years now and it’s been such a privilege working with all of my clients who have become part of the Periwinkle Family.
I now spend my time behind the camera photographing newborns, expectant mothers, toddlers, families, and seniors. I really love it more than any other photography that I have done. When I started on this venture I didn’t have children of my own and now that I do, I understand and appreciate just how special the photographs that I create are. I enjoy it more and more each and every time I meet a new client. Most of my newborn clients stick with me through the years and watching these tiny babies grow and seeing their personalities develop and shine…what a privilege that is!
My degree is in commercial photography , one of my first jobs in the industry was as an apprentice to the photographers and photo stylists at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City Missouri. I then spent a few summers traveling the United States selling my fine art photography at regional art fairs and in the process picked up a handful of awards along the way.
We just loved working with Missy! She came to our house and was patient with my crying newborn and rowdy dog! She had great ideas on what areas of the house would look best in photos. We will cherish our photos forever and we can’t wait to work with her in the future.Jessica and Nathan B.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Missy! She is incredibly talented and full of creative ideas. We will cherish our daughter’s newborn pictures forever as Missy perfectly captured her tiny features. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Missy and highly recommend her!Meridith H.
Missy was the definition of patience during our newborn session. She was very open to our ideas and “wish list” of shots. Her vision and talent shines through in her photos. We are in love with the beautiful images that she created for us, they certainly are priceless!Denise and Aaron H.
Missy was so easy to work with, she created a vision before we even started. She spent extra time and worked patiently with my baby just to get the perfect shot. She captured the peacefulness of a sleeping baby & the curiosity between new siblings. I loved all the pictures!Jenny S.
