Dory is a portrait   photographer specializing in birth and newborn photography. She is an on-location, natural light embracing photographer.

Families interested in documenting their evolution will find that Dory’s photography accurately captures every unique quirk, smile, and expression.

She also enjoys capturing many other different subjects including fine art, nature, pets, events, families, maternity, babies, kids, seniors, engagements, and weddings.

Dory is also an exceptional fine art photographer. She truly enjoys creating art that make anyone’s surrounding beautiful, be it their home or office. Her fine art prints look stunning in any professional office such as doctors, lawyers, or executives.


Dory first got interested in photography when her father gave her a 110 camera at about 12 years of age. She discovered her love of photography while earning her   AA from Kirkwood Community College in Graphic Communications in 2005.

She investigated her passion, diligently practiced, and gradually acquired way more photography equipment than a hobbyist should. It officially switched from a hobby to an occupation around fall 2010 when she did her first paid photo shoot.

She made it super duper   lawyer official in 2014 when the green cheetah photo&design was born as an LLC.
