At the age of 16, I picked up my mom’s camera, put it in automatic mode, and took some photos for a family who wanted that “one Christmas card photo”. One session turned in two, and two turned into 10, and within a year I had a Facebook page and a website. I never aspired to be a photographer, but when I realized there was a need in my community and that I actually had an eye for photography and a passion for working with people, I decided to go all in. I started in 2013 and never looked back! Here I am 7 years later!
I’ve always had an interest in small businesses. Both of my grandpas raised 9 children while being their own boss. They have some of the hardest work ethics I’ve ever seen. One, a grocery store owner for over 40 years, the other, a farmer & rancher. Them, along with my grandmothers and parents, have always taught me the importance of faith, family, and friendships. I value creating trust and a valued experience with my clients. I’m not here to pose you and make you uncomfortable, I’m here to treat you like family and create an experience that feels like home.
It’s not abnormal for me to say “that’s so cute” as least once during a session.
I get extremely giddy during golden hour, especially if there’s light filtering through trees.
I'm obsessed with podcasts, especially The Bobby Bones Show!
I always carry a backup camera in my camera bag (yes, we really do say “beg” in North Dakota).
Need a blanket, chair, umbrella, pair of shoes, or pillow? I’ve got it in my vehicle.
