Ellinwood native Aimee Dreiling’s interest in photography started when she wanted images of her daughter as a newborn.
"I borrowed my mom’s camera because I wanted pictures of my baby to remember all her funny faces and her tiny nose before she started getting bigger," she said.
Now Dreiling is pursuing her Associate in Arts degree at BCC, and she has a full-fledged photography business called "Aimee Marie Photography" based in her hometown of Ellinwood, all of which has transpired in about two years.
A sample of her work is currently available for public viewing in the hallway display case in the Fine Arts Building on Barton’s campus.
Her little girl is now two years old, and Dreiling is hoping her small business will blossom and provide a living wage for her family.
In the meantime, she’ll be finishing her education at BCC, which she said has been a blessing.
"It’s really convenient," she said of Barton. "It’s really nice that the daycare is out here, too."
Dreiling’s photographs will be viewable in the Fine Arts Building until late March.
