Back at it!
Hey everyone! I know it has been a very long time since I have done anything related to my website. I even took down my old posts from years ago. I wanted to start fresh, with new eyes, to get it to where it should be. So, I have been working hard on updating my site, getting new content ready for you all, and obtaining new clients. So, to say the least, I have been hustling my butt off trying to get this up and running again!
For those of you who don't know me, I'm Morgan Thoene (tay-nee). I know... it doesn't look like that is how you would say it. I am an Omaha, Lincoln, and Council Bluffs portrait and wedding photographer. I specialize in Senior photography, and am launching my MT Senior Spokesmodel Program this year! Outside of photography, I am a reading teacher in the area, where I work with students who are two or more grade levels below the average student their age.
Ever since I was a kid, I was obsessed with cameras and taking pictures. I was the person, with a hug bag of film (yes, I used film) with a million pictures of who knows what. When I got older, digital cameras appeared on the scene, and I would frequently steal my sister's camera to take my own pictures. Eventually, once I got to high school, I got my own camera, and even joined the school year book in my Sophomore year. By the time my Senior year rolled around, I was the most photographed person in the yearbook (mostly in the school mascot costume), and was the creative editor.
After high school, I bounced back and forth between what I wanted to do when I grew up. I was at a local community college for years, working towards getting my baking and pastry degree, which I loved. One of my good friends during that time, was taking photography classes, and I was so interested! I wanted to take some classes, but with my busy school schedule, I didn't have time to fit any photography in during this time. Ultimately, being a pastry chef didn't work out, and I took some time off from school to work.
After a while, I decided to get my education degree. I know, a huge jump from baking and pastries to an English teacher. But while I was taking classes, I started my photography business, taking pictures of weddings and families mostly. Fast forward to today, I am expanding my business into Senior portraits. While I will still photograph weddings and families, I am focusing more on senior photography. It gives me a lot of creative freedom to work with, and I get to captures the memories for senior's parents.
Over all, I am so happy with how my business is going. I can't wait for what this year is going to bring!
