Pietan Photography

What has been your motivation?

Bringing to Juneau an affordable outlet to get one's portrait taken. No one should have to spend an astronomical amount of money to get a simple family picture taken. Pietan (Peatan) Photography offers affordable and unique portraits for all ages and pets.

How did you get started in this business?

I've always loved taking pictures, and I've been the photographer at several of my cousin's weddings. Many family members and friends urged me to start taking portraits as a secondary business to The Art Department. So, this spring Pietan Photography was created.

Who was your mentor, and how have they influenced you?

My one-year-old son helped encourage me to take the plunge, and start my portrait business. I was finding myself behind the camera everyday taking pictures of him and his friends, and I loved every minute of it.
