Hey, all! I am Pam and the face behind Iris Images. Yup, I am a one woman show, so things can get a little overwhelming at times but building this business has been one of my greatest joys and this will be my 9th year doing this full-time.  

Before Iris Images, I was a high school English teacher for 5 years but found out quickly that was not the career path for me, so I took a leap of faith, quit teaching and started my own business. And it was the best decision I ever made. 

Connecting with so many amazing people and helping them see how beautiful they truly are is definitely why I love this job so much. So many of my seniors express to me that they don't feel like they are photogenic and they're really nervous to be in front of the camera but my absolute favorite thing is to see how much more confident they become as the shoot progresses. At the end, all their nerves have gone away and it's the coolest thing to see them feeling confident and beautiful. I will always be your biggest hype woman. None of my seniors have been professional models but I hope to make you feel like you could be one by the end of the shoot! 

I have been married to my best friend for almost 13 years and we have an 8 year old daughter named Aspen Iris (hence the name Iris Images) who makes us laugh hysterically every day and is wise beyond her years. 

I love being in nature, hiking, watching sunsets, running and listening to true crime podcasts. I’m a procrastinator, rule follower, lover of cookie cake and I like to dance, even though I’m awful at it.
 
I feel so lucky to get to do this job every day and I hope to get to meet you! 

About

natural editing

When you look back at your senior photos in 10 years, I want you to see YOU and not an airbrushed version of yourself. I spend a great deal of time hand-retouching each of your photos to make sure blemishes are removed while still maintaining the texture of your skin so you don’t look plastic. I also don't apply any filters that will be outdated in a few years. I keep my photos true to color so they will remain timeless.

full service

While we now offer all-inclusive digital sessions, we believe that creating prints and products for our clients is so important. It is important to us that you have quality products after your session so you are not left to do it all yourself. We offer a wide variety of products from regular prints and wall portraits to albums and graduation invites.
