Thank you for taking the time and coming to view my gallery and beautiful photos!
I want to take a moment and share a little about me. I'm a wife, mom, dog mom and a photographer. I live in a small town in Nebraska and have lived in Nebraska for almost all of my life. I've not always been a photographer, however after a huge life event of losing my mom, I needed to do something that makes me happy. Now, I get to do my favorite thing in the world, capturing the feelings, both happy and sad, for you to remember.
I specialize in engagements, wedding, and event photography. I also love photographing small kids, families, and senior portraits.
My small town life outside of big cities has given me the opportunity to really challenge my skills. Let's take your uniqueness and make a memory that you can look back on with my custom artwork and album designs.
Why is photography important to me? It's because as a child my mom worked hard about putting photos into an album. As I got older I didn't take the time until I got married and started scrapbooking. When my husband and I got married we flew to a destination and eloped. The moment that I put on my dress and was finishing getting ready for my ceremony I felt my heart breaking because I realized that I really did want a big wedding day and the photographer and such, but it wasn't going to happen. After all was said and done, our venue charged us by the photo, but then they realized that we didn't have many to chose from. We received around 5-10 images. We had a great friend that took photos over the course of our trip but nothing like I really wished I had. So, as I grow as being a photographer, I want to make sure families have their memories safe and created into lovely items for future to share.
Oh and PS- my family hates photos too. But know how I want to have these memories too. No my son doesn't like to be my model either. (but that doesn't mean I won't keep trying)
When I was young I would pretend to take photos (sometimes without film) in an old 35mm camera. My parent's were not always excited when I would get my hands on the camera. Let's say when digital photography was a thing, it made developing costs much more affordable. Art has been a big part of my life also, and I feel that photography is my chosen medium to use.
Why choose me as your photographer?
Photography just makes me happy. It's the capturing candid times within the group and just being there to make sure memories get frozen in time. It is the way to capture the story of life without any words and speaking volume without a sound. I want you to see the beautiful version of you at your best or at your worse. Getting your photos taken is hard because you are your worse critic and don't feel beautiful. Choosing to become a photographer was not the easiest change in my life but feel the most fulfilled. I see beauty and want want my clients to feel it. My heart is full when clients gush just as much as I do when they see their photos..
I love what I do and I'm grateful for being able to share my art.
Photography is Art
Photographs reflect our dreams, wishes, wants, and insecurities - a plethora of memories and emotions, drives and intents. They are made in a split second where that moment of time is frozen, a hiccup of time that otherwise would have been invisible to us.
I want to help you capture that moment because you are the picture, Let me take it for you.
