My story

Hi! I'm glad you're here to learn a little more about your photographer! I was born and raised in Waconia, Minnesota, and at a young age, my parents got divorced. While I don't remember much from that time, I know it was hard. However, looking back, I wouldn't change that for the world. Because of my parents' divorce, I now have three amazing step-sisters and two very loving step-parents! Not to mention all the ways I grew and the things I learned from that time. Growing up through that, I always knew God existed, I mean we went to church on Sundays! But I never pursued a relationship with Him. That was the story until my sophomore year. Things happened and I went through a very dark season of my life. So dark I realized I couldn't live it alone, I needed the Lord! I surrendered my life to God and accepted Him as my Savior. Since then, there has never been a dull moment! The reason I share this story is because it truly gets at who I am and why I do what I do. I am a child of God and I want to capture his most beautiful creation: YOU!


01. I love Jesus

This is truly the heart and soul behind everything I do. I am driven and motivated, knowing that Jesus has a plan for me. Each day, I wake up and work to glorify God and expand His kingdom.

03. I love going to new places

I have a family big on traveling! So I adore going to new places and experiencing new things! This is why I'm so stoked for bible school in Hawaii! T-minus 9 months!

05. I love my friends

This one is nice and simple! I love the people I surround myself with!

02. I love working

I must have gotten this from my dad! I started my first job when I was 13, and I never stopped wanting to work. I've worked at a few different places over the years, and despite some bad or long nights, I've never not wanted to work!

04. I love people

As most photographers are, I am a social butterfly. I love meeting new people and making friends! and photography sessions are the perfect place for me to do that
