Cherie is an award-winning Photographer and Hair & Makeup Artist, running a full-scale studio in her turn of the century farmhouse, outside Omaha, NE.

She has been in the photography industry for the past 27 years. Twenty of those were behind a camera - so she knows a thing or two about taking a great portrait.  

In every session, her goal is to keep it relaxed and straightforward by shooting with very little equipment and uncomplicated setups. Utilizing the natural surroundings, she can elicit the vibrancy of her subject's personality and, in a moment, capture it so they will cherish it forever. 

Cherie's fun and uniquely artistic approach to capturing the genuine emotion and essence of her clients has earned her several awards, including a three-time winner of PPofN's prestigious Senior Photographer of the Year and SPA's Judge's Choice, among several others. She has been published in national senior magazines, is a speaker on the national circuit, mentors photographers from around the US, and is continuously working on perfecting her craft.

She can be trusted to take her time, find your inner glow, and capture it for you (and whomever you chose to share it with) - so that it can ignite your soul with the flame of newfound appreciation of YOU because your story matters.
