Magical moments with a girl and her horse.

On those occasions when I'm privileged to have a client trust me with my art, my creativity — magic happens. (A pretty cooperative horse helps, too. :) )

The importance of capturing Riley at this wonderful time in her life (when everything is possible), for her and her family to enjoy today and look back at fondly in the future, was in my mind prior to this session. No pressure! As you can see, everything turned out beautifully.


Riley was kind enough to write some nice words about her senior session, and a couple prior ones we had together.

"Barb took my senior pictures, and I am absolutely in love with them. We actually had three sessions together, all with my horse. Every single session I was extremely impressed and loved all of my photos. I can't stop getting compliments on my senior pictures! People tell me they look like something out of a magazine. She's incredibly thorough, and makes the most out of the time we have together. I showed her examples of photos I liked, and she succeeded in capturing a photo similar for every single one. She's very knowledgeable and every time I am very, very happy with my pictures." ~ Riley Wickline, senior

Portrait Sessions

Portrait clients are not the main focus of my business, so that's why you don't see much information on my website. But if you love my work, trust me to create beautiful images for you, and have a great or slightly off beat sense of humor, then you're my kind of client! (And if you're a fellow introvert, we'll get along just fine.)

If you love my work, please get in touch with me to see if we'll like working with each other. Choosing a photographer is a bit like picking out shoes. They all go on our feet, but the shoes need to fit right or you're not comfortable. I want you to be comfortable. And I'll treat you the way I want to be treated—with attention and care, and with a dose of humor thrown in, too.

Visit the Portraits page, which features images of families, children, individuals, and pets. You'll also find some basic information on pricing, too.
