Photography & Design

Creating images you can look back on and feel.  Feel the emotion of your wedding day, when you said "I do" and began a life together.  Feel the pride when you see your child in their Senior year ready to take on the world.  Feel the pure love of holding your newborn baby in your arms.  
These moments come and go in a flash.  Let me capture them so those memories never fade.  Years from now, you'll be so glad you have more than the pictures you have on your phone.  Call me.  Let's talk.

"Becky has a way of capturing moments through her work, creating photos that preserve the emotion of those moments and tell the story behind the photo!"

About Me

Hello!  My name is Becky Morris.  Thanks for taking a minute to check out my page. I'm glad you're here! Here is a very quick overview of what makes me...me! 

-I'm a Mom (yes, they will all be taller than I am very soon....sigh...)
-I was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado
-I have lived in CO, FL and NM (ex military wife)
-I have a very unhealthy coffee obsession
-I also have a passion for sunrises and sunsets
-I despise green bell peppers
-I WILL have a French Bulldog one day

My life has been full of twists and turns and through it all, one thing that has never wavered is my love for photography (and art in general).  I was inspired by someone who I love and admire greatly; my Mom.  She took photos ALL the time.  She had/has a big suitcase that was full of photos from my childhood.  I used to LOVE going through and looking at them all and reliving so many great memories of my sister and I as kids.  She also took some pretty amazing landscape and hot air balloon photos!

Once I had my oldest daughter I was given my first "grown up" camera. (One that you had to do more than just point and shoot.). That was all it took!!  I knew photography was something I loved and wanted to do more and more. 

After years of teaching myself (taking a LOT of terrible photos!), taking classes and workshops, mentoring with some amazing photographers and finally, earning my degree in Multi Media Graphic Design, I've gained a true passion for both photography and design.  Reach out and let me know how I can help.  I've been fortunate to work with so many amazing clients and can't wait to work with you!

Macaya (Ma-kai-ya)

Macaya is a blend of my children names:  
Ma - (Madison)  Ca - (Cameron)  Ya- (Maya)
The meaning of the word has been tricky to define but it has varied from the name of a Haitian Warrior to love and hope.  For me, all three of those things are the driving force behind my mission.  I will let my inner warrior come out to battle when needed.  Life is tough...we all have to have a little bit of that warrior spirit!  Then love and hope....the list behind those two words is endless.  But mostly I hope that through my images, whether photographs or designs or anything else, that I can create something you will love.  And I will do what it takes to make sure you love it!
If you're curious about the elephant, there is a common thread in everything I do.  Being strong, caring and having an impactful presence is very important to me.  Elephants are incredible creatures who are led by a strong matriarch and stick together as a family for life (usually).  They care for one another and never leave anyone behind.  They care for each others babies, they protect each other, they stand tall and do what needs to be done.

I'd love to hear from you!  Let's talk.
