Dotty Molt...

Untitled photo

Is an award winning professional photographer, author, yoga teacher, and avid explorer who loves hiking off the grid away from the herd and into the wild. She has never encountered a bear on the trail while hiking, so her animal totem is either a bee, a squirrel or a chickadee because all three follow her. She is also a Florida native whose heart has always longed for crisp mountain air and four seasons.

She moved to Reno in 2006 and is now blessed to live on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe in Incline Village, Nevada. ​ Although always on time, she's a procrastinator who often times can't decide between dinner with a friend or capturing a beautiful sunset. If you happen to see Ruby, her red jeep speeding along 28 at sunset when the clouds are reflecting brilliant color on the calm surface of Tahoe, don’t get in her way. She’s on a mission to capture an image which awakens the soul to the transcendent healing beauty of nature and get back home in time for dinner. ​

Lastly, she's DoMoBA, Dotty Molt BadAss, a fiercely fearless free spirit who loves adventure, hiking up steep mountains, practicing yoga at the edge of a cliff,and standing in a curtain of shimmering Northern Lights with arms outstretched, her delightful laughter echoing in the air.
