xoxo,

What do you need to know about me? Well, I love coffee and breakfast food… cheap beer, live music... and anything fried! I’m tall, blonde, and dress like Meg Ryan from “You’ve Got Mail”. Quirk is my jam. So is Netflix. If you want to win my heart just throw on some “New Girl” or “The Office”! I was born and raised in small-town Iowa — moved away, made some cool memories, gained some experience, and found my way back. Now I live in Dubuque with my wonderful husband, two growing boys, and a camera that’s seen it all.

MORE OF MY STORY

I will promise you that together, we’ll make art that is personal: one-of-a-kind. I promise that we’ll laugh and play through the rain or sun or gently falling snow. I will put you at ease in front of the lens and help you stay in that happy place through the inevitable awkward trip, dress rip, or flubbed bouquet toss. I will catch those eyes shining, that warm smile, that candid kiss, that proud-tear-hankie-wipe. And when all is said and done, I will give you something bold and beautiful... images that reflect the best, truest version of you. 

I won’t promise you perfect and posed… photos that look like everyone else’s. 

I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to call my passion my profession: the art of turning fleeting moments into lasting memories. As a free spirit, wife, and boy mom I understand the importance of savoring the small things. Capturing the messy and unexpected alongside the meticulous and monumental. Making magic out of the raw and real. Watching for that split second beyond all the planning, nerves, and excitement where life happens and your bold, authentic self shines through. I’m about dancing to your own beat, and having a blast while you do! And I’m a pro, here to document it all for you.

Sound good? Yeah it does.

Capturing special moments, unscripted, unposed, for clients who want more, putting them at ease in front of the lens and helping them stay in that happy place so that together we can make art that is personal: one-of-a-kind.
