Life is like a camera

focus on what’s important

and if it doesn’t work out, take another shot

Whenever I have a camera with me, I look at things differently. I see the beauty of an average place, the majesty in an average person, and enjoy moments I might have missed altogether! We can easily forget life’s experiences if we don’t gather them in stories or photos! As a lifestyle portrait and event photographer, I capture milestones for families and individuals and help organizations and entrepreneurs showcase what they do.

meet Deniane


Hi, I’m Deniane (pronounced Denny-Ann) Kartchner. Welcome to my little corner of the world! I love history, the arts, and family-centered events of all kinds, which is why I love living in Ogden, Utah – a vibrant, timeless, and unique place we call home. In my former work life I’ve been a journalist, copy editor, layout editor, and graphic designer. I bring this experience to my photography and love to share what I’ve learned and projects I’m currently working on!

ky & kannah


Ky & Hannah, our son and daughter-in-law. I remember when they were first dating, they jokingly said their “couple name” was Kyannah. Would they, will they, name a little girl this name? I guess we won’t know for awhile, since they are having a boy, and his name is … Ryker.
