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 8th year doing this full-time.

I first became interested in photography back when I purchased my first film camera while I was in high school. Back then I took pictures of anything and everything…but even back then, I mostly loved to photograph people. Whether I was taking candid shots of my friends and family or street musicians in downtown Omaha, I loved to capture people in their element.

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. 

I have been married to my best friend for almost 13 years and we have a 7 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.

full service

While we do offer digital files and mobile apps, we believe that creating prints and products for our clients is an essential part of the process. 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. And because we know sharing on social media is important for our seniors, we also offer custom mobile apps for sharing purposes.
