Tracy is John's life partner and business partner. Tracy graduated from Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, IN with a BS in interior design and art. Tracy has been exposed to photography all her life and she is extremely creative. Starting at a very young age, Tracy spent many hours alongside her dad, Don Becker (http://www.donbeckerphotography.com) who is also a professional photographer, photographic educator and photographic artist. Tracy has spent time in her father's darkroom with him, learning about photo processing and developing, along with professional photography lighting. Tracy loves people, and she is passionate about being a mom. She also loves traveling and nature and she has a love for animals, both pets (especially cats) and wildlife.

While our specialty is wedding and engagement photography, we also capture newborn and maternity photos, family portraits, senior portraits, proms and graduations, corporate headshots and special events. We have a photography studio located in Mount Airy, MD and we have all the expertise, equipment and props to tell your story in a creative and memorable way.
