Simply Portraits is composed of Tina Raibley and Amanda Raibley-Weaver, a mother-daughter team.
Their work differs greatly from chain portrait studios and photographers that simply shoot and burn a disc. After your session your portraits are carefully gone through and edited by hand before you preview them. Then, after your order has been placed they undergo another round of careful retouching to ensure the highest quality art of your family for your home. The goal is to provide each client with their own unique experience in which to capture life in a way that demonstrates who they are. They strive to have a quality product and a timely delivery of your cherished memories to you.

As long as I can remember, I have had a camera in my hand or around my neck. I bought my first 35mm camera at 18 and I have been taking pictures ever since. I have had years of experience working in a professional portrait studio as well as many years of freelancing.
As a mother of five, I have had many opportunities to photograph children. I love coming into their world and capturing those moments and expressions that show you who they are and what they love to do. What I love most about photographing people and families is the joy it brings when I capture those moments in time that they will cherish forever.
Being the daughter of a photographer I have always been very comfortable around a camera. I love capturing images knowing that someone will enjoy them for years. But my real joy is what happens after the images are captured. The challenge of creating the perfect balance of editing and an artistic touch keeps me happily on my toes. Having my degree in Marketing I have developed a true love for combining the creative along with the business aspect of photography.
