I pour heart + soul into what I do and it makes all the difference in the world.
I have a Master of Arts in Photography and Painting from the University of Saint Francis, along with a Bachelors in Psychology from IUPUI + a Masters in Psychology from the University of Saint Francis. I basically took the super long, most roundabout way to end up here, but I can't imagine dedicating my life to anything else. I'm a stronger artist, photographer + business owner for it.
Art + Storytelling
I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember- painting, drawing, photographing, collaging. Creating art has always been a central point in my life. I’m quiet. An observer, watching moments unfold, listening for stories to be told. That’s the way I utilize photography. Waiting, watching, directing and documenting authentic moments as they unfold organically. I am fascinated by love and human connection, so it only makes sense to combine both of those interests in this career.
In my free time you can catch me Instagraming my dogs, learning to snowboard, planning epic vacations, listing to true crime podcasts, getting lost in books, painting -drawing -doodling, making paleo meals, hiking, collecting antiques, hunting for Mid Century inspired furniture to adorn our house with, feasting on Mexican food and traveling all over the country with Nate showing our Siberian Huskies (Ghost, Luna + Simone) in AKC dog shows.
My Love Story
Nate and I met in 2009 and after bonding over knee surgeries started dating. We ended up drifting apart a few months later and didn't talk for nearly two years but almost exactly to the date we originally met, we reconnected and the rest is history.
In August of 2017 Nate took me on a surprise trip to Colorado for my birthday and proposed to me on the edge of Dream Lake in the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was pretty magical and I jokingly said, "I guess dreams do come true at Dream Lake."
On 7-22-2018, we eloped in Las Vegas for our "legal" ceremony. On 8-8-2018 we had our ceremony on top of the mountains at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in British Columbia surrounded by our close family and friends with my brother officiating our ceremony. We had our reception at a vintage bowling alley in Banff, Alberta. It was everything we could have ever wanted. An absolute dream.
