Hello! My name is Esther Young Dora and I am the wife, mother, and photographer behind Forever Young Photography.  I started this company in 2013 with one goal: to capture the everyday moments that make life truly beautiful.  I’m talking about the conversations between a mother and her cowboy boot-clad toddler; the connection between a father and his newborn son;  the fleeting rays of sunlight that shine between two sisters holding hands as they run together.  Photography stills these seemingly routine moments and makes them extraordinary.  It makes the love in these interactions tangible and I am so blessed that I get to do this for my clients.

You can see me pictured above with my husband and four very adventurous boys, my inspiration to take photography from a life-long hobby to a career.  Forever Young Photography is not only a tribute to my maiden name Young, but a nod to the true essence of what photography is—keeping moments forever young.

I am so thankful that I have been able to turn my passion into a career, and even more thankful that I get to see the unique life in every client with each shoot.  I love hearing from new people so please feel free to contact me for any information or just to chat about what I do!


With love,



"God is in the sadness and the laughter, in the bitter and the sweet. There is a divine purpose behind everything — and therefore a divine presence in everything."
