Sindea (which sounds like Cindy, but do not feel badly if you mispronounce it, most people do!)
has had a camera in hand since she was about 5 years old. Growing up, everything was a photo and she could not wait to learn how to create beautiful images. Starting out in film, she was
a yearbook and college newspaper editor and photographer, and began a career in portrait
photography in 1995. She started off with weddings and family portraits, and after a few years
she switched gears away from weddings and into birth (back before it was even acceptable!). She spent 20 years doing birth work, as well as families, newborns, children, seniors, and boud-
oir. In 2017, she retired from birth work to have a baby of her own. She then refocused her love
of photography to boudoir, seniors, & lifestyle sessions for newborns and young families. To keep the creative juices flowing & interesting, she also enjoys business branding sessions & cake smash sessions ( for any age!).
Sindea loves all things green, dragonflies, dancing, and music.
She plays her music way too loud, but hasn't lost her hearing, despite the warnings.
She has a dry sense of humor and tends to be goofy.
She was born in West Virginia, grew up in Louisiana, and transplanted to Washington at age 18, via Greyhound Bus.
She believes everyone is beautiful and can look amazing in their photos when they are having fun.
She has seen Rod Stewart, Duran Duran, and Barenaked Ladies in concert 6 times each.
She has a large collection of Chuck Taylor tennis shoes, among many different types of boots.
She loves cars, and hopes to own a 1965 Plymouth Valiant (her first car) and a 1966 Mustang someday.
