Growing up, I always wanted to be an animator for Disney movies. My college drawing classes told me otherwise. I seriously can’t draw. Somewhere along the way I discovered that despite my poor skills in drawing, I had some promise with a camera.

Now everyday when I wake up I can’t help but smile knowing that I have my dream career. Part of that smiling might have something to do with it being 9:00 am (I love setting my own hours!) but I am truly thrilled to have this opportunity. It’s been thirteen years since I photographed my first wedding, and over nine years since I took this on as a full-time career. I can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing!

I live in Seward with my awesome and nerdy husband Kyle (he’s a biology professor), our insanely adorable dog Oliver, and our cats Buster and Susan (I’m learning to love them). When I am not working I love to golf, travel, and spend time at the lake.
