Meet Deena

Hello!  I’m Deena… this is me with my husband, Mikel, and my daughters Arabella and Adeleine…

I’m so thrilled you’re here.  Here’s a bit about my background in photography and life…

I fell in love with photography when I joined the middle school yearbook staff in 8th grade.  My involvement with yearbook lasted throughout high school and college, and after about a year or so in the “real world” I decided to slowly tip toe my way into the photography industry.  I’ve now been in business for almost 10 years, and have done a little bit of almost everything when it comes to photography.  I love the creative challenges as well as hanging out with fun families while I take their portraits!

Some truths about me:  I love Dallas Stars hockey, listening to podcasts in the car (I feel so much smarter when I do!), I’m a serial entrepreneur, and I really love baking… but I can take or leave actually eating the results of my labor.  The two little girls in the photo above keep me quite busy and I love being their mama!  They have a baby brother who was born earlier this year, as well… the baby in that photo is now two… so, updated photo coming soon!  Mikel and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the end of 2016 – I’m pretty sure someone pushed a fast forward button on time the moment we got married.

I hope you enjoy your time poking around my website.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send me an email.  I’d love to hear from you!
