My Story,

Hi everyone, my name is Ciera, I'm a Portrait Photographer and mom of two. I have been doing photography off and on for over 15 years. I am self-taught with some college courses; but mainly self-taught. I specialize in Maternity, Newborn, Children, and my creative favorite Cake Smash.

I love studio and on location shoots, whether in a clients home, at the ocean or in the mountains, as long as I have my camera and willing subjects, we are set. 

Creating new born, cake smash or milestone sets is one of my favorite things to do creatively. You can catch me in a HomeGoods looking for a good prop any day of the week. On occasion I will dabble in Landscape and Wildlife photography while out and about, but they can't give me fire through a lens like people can. Most of all capturing people, expression, and those moments we will never get back is why I love what I do. I can't wait to capture your milestones and turn them into memories.

I am also an Associate Photographer for the amazing Ana Brandt, for in Arizona and Utah. Brand Ambassador for all things Ana Brandt and Creative Partner for Creative Dream Drops.

Keep an eye out for all the new and exciting things coming my way.

Live it, Breathe it, See it, Capture it

Featured Magazines & Competitions

Summerana Magazine

First feature in this beautiful Photography magazine. Created the frame myself and had the beautiful Chloe dress from Little Dreamers Couture. Elise did a stunning job modeling this dress and had a blast doing it. Page 25 **Red Dress images are my work.

Pro Prints Invitational Recipient

I was invited to compete in the 2nd Annual ProPrints Invitational Photography Competition. We had to choose a tarot card for inspiration and pull from that, I chose Judgement. I had to get to creating, make magic, and submit... My inspiration comes from being a young mom and the judgement behind that.

I wasn't a finalist, but the experience was such an honor, I couldn't have asked for more.

Belly Baby Magazine

Featured on page 14 and 48 for the Holiday Edition.
