hi, i'm missie

The artist & photographer, featured on the following publications:


Life is perfectly imperfect!  Your life, your experiences, make you who you are and I want to capture that!

Hello!  I'm Missie- I am the owner and photographer at Missie Lafrenz Photography.  I am based out of Indianola, IA- 15 miles south of Des Moines, IA.  

I do NOT show up looking like prim and polished to your session...I wear my glasses  and athletic wear cuz I get dirty, wet, sandy or just flat out sit in mud.  And I am up and down a ladder, so I wear my nikes.  But you will know it's me because I will be the lady with the 5 foot ladder and a camera around my neck!  


11 years ago attended Hawkeye College for photography and started taking pictures casually for clients immediately after school.  The years have been a growing experience for me and a couple years ago, I said good bye to the conventional approach to photography and started doing my own thing...making pictures more artistic and relationship centered.  I am inspired by you...from what you wear to your personality...the pictures that are produced are a reflection and extension of you.  


My style is very moody, colorful, fun and emotional...I am inspired by your style, the light and the location, and I will direct you on all three to produce the best photos!  I don't take short cuts-I take my time to get to know you, your family, your kids, your fiancé...whoever you are, I want to see it, capture it and give it to you forever to keep.

Every session is different, I don't follow a protocol or map out what poses I will do..I feed off of your individualized personality and capture who you are.
