Deanna spent her childhood years exploring the wilderness in the beautiful Northwest region, being raised in primarily Washington and Idaho states. Deanna always showed a growing passion for photography, capturing moments special to her family, friends and travel.

Deanna attended Brigham Young University - Idaho, just steps from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Yellowstone National Park. Traveling with her Nikon camera, Deanna developed a growing interest in exploring and photographing the vast beauty of areas less traveled.  In the summer of 2012 she married the love of her life and together they moved to Alaska, where they traveled, explored, and worked under the light of the Aurora Borealis.

They now reside in the great state of New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment.
