It all started when…

I had my babies. I realized that my point and shoot pocket camera was not enough for me. I wanted to document all those special moments, but they were  turning out blurry or dark or the light was orange. Fast forward a few years and here I am making memories for friends, family, and my clients! I am self taught and love continuing to learn new methods and techniques during this crazy photography journey. Born and raised in Northeast Nebraska I grew up on our family farm. I was always very passionate about animals so I went on to get my degree in Animal Science. My husband and I will be married 13 years this year and we have three beautiful children. I am a mom first, but love all the children, families, and couples that come to me and trust me to capture their moments. In my spare time I help with our family farm and enjoy helping my children ride and show horses and get to show some on my own when I can. You also might find us at the dragstrip on the weekends while we cheer my husband on in his hobby of drag racing.
