About Me and My Journey in Photography
I am just a regular Nebraska-raised, married to a wonderful man with three beautiful kids, “girl-next-door.” Being a wedding photographer and delving into portrait photography has been an incredible journey. Photography has always been a favorite pastime of mine. I started out at Iowa State University learning on film cameras and processing film and developing prints in the darkroom. I loved it. I usually spent whole weekends in the lab working on it. Interestingly enough, it wouldn’t be until years later into my graphic design career, that I decided I needed to whole-heartedly pursue photography. And after going through the process of my own wedding, I realized what is important and what really matters years after your wedding day. This has been one of my driving motivators for creating beautiful images and capturing heartfelt moments for you and your spouse-to-be.
Fast-forward to 2014, I became a full-time mom and started studying portraiture and studio lighting. I even took our first complete family photo together right before we unexpectedly lost my dad. Losing someone definitely puts into perspective what you have after they’re gone. It was with a heavy heart and coming to the realization that photos were the best way of remembering a loved one’s memory, that it became my passion to create beautiful portraiture for others.
My purpose in photographing weddings and portraits, is to serve you and your loved ones with a wonderful experience, personable customer service and priceless memories. I want to give you beautiful photos to last throughout your life and your important milestones. I strive for my journey in photography, to serve and provide your life’s journey with priceless memories lasting for generations.
