Photography is my art. I have spent the better part of 18 years finding my voice, and communicating what I see into heirlooms and fine art that will be cherished for a lifetime. My approach is simple, I approach every session with a fresh mind, open eyes and my creativity flowing. I will often walk into a session with no idea how I want to shoot, but will leave feeling accomplished and having captured exactly what my vision was.
I am an artist, photography is my canvas and just like any artist, you are hiring me to create something for you; not just for a person to click a shutter button.
I started my photography journey while I was a young girl in the Montana 4-H program. With an amazing mentor, I was able to grow and find a passion with photography throughout my youth. I began my journey with film in 2000, and I haven’t stopped yet. In 2013 I began my professional career and haven’t looked back.
I moved to Minnesota in 2017, with my now husband Chris. Chris is a general contractor, and when I am not running my business, I am helping him run his. We are both highly motivated people, and we are both excited to see where this journey takes us.
My life is fairly simple. My husband and I live on a small 10 acre farm in central Minnesota. We have three horses, some chickens and a few barn cats, all of which have names and come when called. (Those cats are secretly my favorite part, and I feel like they love me way more than Chris) I have always had horses, in fact I can’t remember my life without them. They are a huge part of who I am, and where I want to be. I began my journey as a photographer when I was around 10 years old, and I have progressed and developed into a full time, professional photographer.
My photography can be seen in art galleries in Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota; with my first solo art exhibition being in February 2019, in Minneapolis. My passion is photography, and any instance where I can fuel my creativity and drive myself to new levels, I take that chance!
My husband is my hero, and is constantly motivating me and giving me reasons to grow and achieve new amazing goals. Without him, I wouldn’t be in this position today. To summarize, I am a Montana girl, who fell in love with an American Hero and was swept off her feet to the beautiful state of Minnesota. Where she planted her roots and began the journey that is life with the man of her dreams by her side.
