HI! My name is Mindy!
One of my greatest joys in life is to create beautiful artwork for families' homes, that was created in a relaxed and comfy environment that is as stress free as possible! THAT is when your children's true personalities shine through!
I began photographing my children (Timmy, Reilly and Wesley) in 2002, after a disastrous and stressful portrait session at a chain studio where they were not allowed to be themselves. Imagine a lady telling your a 5 and 2 year old boys not to move, stay still, SMILE, and a hungry two week old fussing to nurse!! Sweat was running down my armpits like waterfalls!!! I decided right then that I would never put my children, nor myself through that EVER, EVER AGAIN!
After my 4th son was born in 2004, having completed 3 years of combined self-learning, being mentored, and working part time at a studio in Omaha, NE, I decided to open my first studio, Mindy Parker Photography.
I went on to win awards through the Professional Photographers of America, including the Kodak Gallery Award for Portrait in Nebraska, and Best Portrait of Show for a Non-Master Photographer, in Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri.
