Hello! My name is Ardath Waller and I am a certified professional photographer (CPP) living in the Greenwood, Indiana area and I LOVE photography! The main reason I love it so much is that I get to meet so many cool people and pets.
I have had a camera in my hands since I was a little girl. My first camera was a Brownie camera. But I am also technically inclined and absolutely embraced the digital age of DSLRs and photo editing software. So powerful!
A little about me….I am a huge pet person and I have always had a dog around. I grew up with miniature poodles and have had many various types of dogs as an adult. I recently lost my 12 yr old golden retriever, Baxter, and am so grateful I have so many portraits of him. And now I have a spunky and super vocal golden doodle named Hope.
I am an air force brat and moved around every other year my whole childhood – mostly in warm tropical climates. I have lived in Indiana for my whole adult life and because it is not always warm and tropical here, I travel as much as possible. 🙂 I also spend as much time as possible with my family, love to bicycle, and never leave the house without a camera or cell phone camera in hand.
My photography goal is to capture the essence of the person or animal looking into my camera. I focus on pet photography, high school seniors, and professional headshots. All session types are a blast for me. Pets prance in and realize not long into the session that they are IT and special. High School Seniors are super excited heading into their last high school year and end their sessions super energetic. And professional headshots are a special “me time” activity that reminds the career-minded person what they have achieved.
You will find the time spent on a photography session is both rewarding and special. Everybody desires “me-time”, right? And best of all, the end result will be portraits that you will proudly display.
