Photography at its finest.
I joined the Indianapolis Professional Photographers Guild and Professional Photographers of America to pursue my photography education. In 2016 I earned my professional certification (CPP). By God's grace, I hope to earn my Master Photographer degree in 2021.
IT ALL STARTED IN 4-H
My love for photography began when my dad took me to my 4H meetings as a kid. We both enjoyed learning together. As I grew older, my folks encouraged me to pursue a "marketable" degree in college. I studied education and Christian counseling. Then I went off to teach at a Christian school overseas for the next 10 years. When Roger and I got married, I was able to quit teaching and revisit my first love of photography.
One of my core values is giving back. Generosity has been a family trait of both the Crail and Motter side of my family, and I believe that some of the most fulfilling things we can do is to be generous with others. For that reason, I give a portion of the earnings on every job to charity or Christian missions in my client's honor each time I book a job.
In gratitude for those who have mentored me along the way, I enjoy giving back by teaching photography workshops and serving in the Indianapolis PPA association where I currently serve as president.
