About Destri



Andorf Family-25Thanks for stopping by my website. Let me introduce myself to you – my name is Destri (pronunciation: des-tree). I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia and moved to the United States in 1999 to pursue my bachelor degree in Graphic Design from Iowa State University (ISU). Why Iowa? Yeah, everyone asked me that (back then and even now!). My brother was an Electrical Engineering student at ISU at that time, so it was easier for my mom to “ship” me here too .

I have always had a passion in design and art. I took some photography classes back during the film era, spending at least $50 on film and paper for just one project. (Yep, I’m actually that old )

Anyway, as you can see in my portfolio tab, my photography style is about color and capturing those bright and cheerful, candid moments. I do love black and white photography, but I personally believe that black and white is an easy way out. ANYTHING can look pretty when you turn it into black and white. I love colors. I love chasing kids and making them giggle and laugh. Capturing their real spirit during their happy moments is my goal.

I will do my best to make sure your photo session time is full of fun, painless and free of meltdowns .

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Best Regards,

{your Central Iowa area photographer – based out of Ames}
