Hi there!

My name is Petra, and I am a primarily self taught photographer. I've spent my whole life in Rochester, NY, the birthplace of Kodak, so photography has been with me from the very beginning!

She was also a great photographer (even if she didn't see herself as one) and gave me my very first camera.

Everything you see is handmade by me :) and I also accept custom orders. I am a firm believer in the unique, and I want you to have a product that is as unique as you are!

When I'm not taking pictures or creating things, I spend my time with my loving husband and our family. I also hold a bachelors degree in substance and alcohol abuse counseling and currently work in the mental health field.

Thank you for taking the time to read more about me, I hope you've enjoyed my shop!
