Our Story

Best Friends. Artists. Husband and Wife. Parents. Business Owners. Photographers. Dog Lovers. Teachers.

These are some words that describe us. The truth is. We love to create and we love to share that passion with others. Whether it is with adults or children. The need to create runs deep in all of us.

We’ve owned Krakora Studios, our photography studio, for over 10 years. We finished building our dream studio in 2014 and we’re excited to finally share it with the world! This space was created to inspire creativity – and we can’t keep that all to ourselves! We are exited offer Photography and Art Journeys (classes) at the Creative Lab, including Going Beyond the Snapshot, Mindful Art Journey and you even get a chance to Name Your Own Photography/Art Journey!

The thing we love most about being artists is the Creative Process because it is different for everyone.  We each have over 20 years of experience as working artists in different creative fields.  We have found many ways to push ourselves through different road blocks (creative and personal) that have come up over the years  – we are excited to share our experience with you.

About Heather

Heather has as always been an artist. Her career started as a graphic designer and over the years, evolved into a photographer and visual storyteller. Continuing to evolving, it has been through her journey that she has found Art to be an essential part to her self-care and personal (r)evolution. She believes that everyone should have some aspect of art practice in their lives. First and foremost, that children + adults should have a safe space to go and simply create without judgement. To have access to the tools to explore art without being told that they are doing it wrong. But rather, be guided in the different ways to see and to create. Often times, we adults feel that we are not creative enough. If you let Heather hear you say this, she will tackle you to the ground and insist that everyone has the ability, you just need to know how to tap into it.
