As a mom, Tracy knows a stress-free environment is important. She strives to make each photo shoot a fun and enjoyable event. It’s more than just a picture, you receive an experience.
Tracy is a classically educated photographer and experienced professional. She discovered her artistic ability at an early age. While most children scribble on walls with crayon, Tracy embraced it. At the age of 4, she stepped back from her purple magic marker drawing, admired her work and then proudly autographed it.
Her life has always been driven by art. Tracy received her fine art photography degree from Syracuse University in 1992. Her education continued at Brooks Institute of Photography for 2 years before securing an internship at Hallmark Cards. During the three month internship, Tracy fell in love with the people of Kansas City. While she misses the ocean and beaches of New Jersey where she grew up, Tracy is proud to call the mid-west her home.
In 2008 Tracy’s years of commercial photography, managing N The Zone and personal portrait work all came together and Gallery Portraiture was born. In 2019 Tracy added to her accolades with her professional certification. Only 3% of all photographers hold the title of “Certified Professional Photographer” earned through the Professional Photographers of America.
Whether its volume sports to full service custom artworks, the approach is to create beautiful images you will HOLD DEAR. If you are looking for sincere, engaging portraits of your loved ones call Gallery Portraiture and let Tracy turn your life, into Art.

Do you remember those Adolescent years? Crooked teeth, acne and who can forget the emotional rollercoasters. Anyone else remember feeling self-conscious and awkward?
IMAGINE the power of seeing yourself as BEAUTIFUL!
“My Life” sessions are designed to show the Beauty that shines from within you. There are always cute baby photos of us. The toddler years are so silly and fun, that there are lots of photos then too. But…we forget those critical in be“tween” years before they are all grown up. So, before she is shopping for prom dresses. Give her the power to feel beautiful.
