Short and Sweet-
Born and raised in small town Iowa, I studied communication at the University of Northern Iowa, and started shooting portraits & weddings
professionally in 2009. Lived for 4 years in Alaska. Relocated to Melbourne, Florida for 4 years and now have finally moved back home to
Iowa for the long haul.
Long and Oversharey-
My favorite part of this job is spending time with new people and documenting them as they become comfortable around me and my camera.
My second favorite part is using my creativity to create custom print and album layouts. I really love using your photos to tell a story with clean and timeless designs.
My third favorite part of this job is reliving your story through your photos. Trust me when I say that while I'm editing your images, I'm my own worst critic, even when I know you'll love them in the end because they tell YOUR story!
I love Facebook and update my business page there regularly.
I love that people hire me not because I take pretty pictures, but because I love the people I work with and I love documenting the story of their lives.
My camera system of choice is Canon. I use a 5D Mark IV and a 1D Mark III. I believe "take photos. all the time. of everything." is the answer to a lot of questions I get asked. I also have several lenses that maximize what I'm capable of shooting, from a 100mm macro to a 24-70L series lens. Let me know if you have any questions about my gear!
