My Portrait Studio

While I enjoy spending time outdoors, I absolutely love doing portrait sessions in the comfort of my studio.

My studio is the perfect place for your portrait session!

• With a wide variety of backdrops -- from traditional backdrops to wood, brick, or stone textured backdrops to scenic & seasonal backdrops -- there is sure to be something ideal for your portrait session. And don't forget there are lots of fun props available in the studio, too! 

No worries about the weather. Is it too hot & humid outside? Freezing cold? Windy, raining, or snowing? Doesn't matter since it is always just right in the studio!

• Work your session time around YOUR schedule, not the sun's schedule.

I've been at this current location since February 2013. Some of my studio equipment is portable for on-location portraits for preschools, homeschool groups, scouts, and more. 

My portrait studio is located south of Jonestown, PA, just off Route 72 at 443 Mountville Drive.  You'll find me in the same building as Just Add Water Hair Care and Ciao Pizza Restaurant. Parking is available along the south side of the building. You need to enter the parking lot beside the pizza restaurant off of W. Center Street and drive around the back of the building, where there are single parking spaces for the studio. There is a studio entrance facing Mountville Drive, or you can just knock on the side door & I will let you in!

Portrait sessions by appointment only. Weekday daytime/evening appointments available during and outside of business office hours as well as limited weekend appointments .

Behind the Lens


Hello! I'm Carrie, child & high school senior photographer, owner, and client of DDC Portrait Studio. Yes, I take most of my family's portraits and my own portraits, too!

I started out doing outdoor family portraits and wedding photography. In the fall of 2010, a local daycare asked me to take portraits of their students. I instantly fell in love with doing studio-style portrait work and taking child portraits while on location at that daycare preserving early childhood memories for those kiddos! And so also began my obsession with backdrops and props . . . of which my collections are ever growing to give you many options for your portrait session!

Having a camera in my hand always brings me joy. But my goal is to put a smile on your face during your portrait session and when delivering your professional quality portrait prints & products for you to display, share, and enjoy daily and beyond. I'm excited to chat with you and plan your portrait session!

More about me:

• wife, hockey mom ** Let's Go Jr. Bears! **, & proud aunt

• Northern Lebanon High School and Central Penn Business School alumni

• Church secretary & VBS leader

• American history buff

Things I love:

• flea markets & yard sales . . . searching for the perfect new prop!

• watching "Friends" . . . again & again, great for late night editing!

• walking around Memorial Lake, Levitz Park, or on the Rails to Trails with my hubby & kiddo

• morning walks on the beach during our annual vacation

• day trips to Knoebel's making memories with my family

• ending every day with a glass of milk & cookies -- it's a family tradition!

A special "Thank You" to all my supportive family, especially to my wonderful husband. I couldn't be pursuing my photography ambitions, which officially became known as DDC Photography in 2008 and rebranded as DDC Portrait Studio in October 2018, without you!

Keep Smiling!
