Welcome to my website & blog! This is where I ramble on and on about how much I love photography, my pets, espresso, and whatever fruits and vegetables are in season at the time.
A few things on the history of "moi":
I was born and raised on a diary farm in Central Minnesota. The town I am from has a population of roughly 2,200 people. Throughout my childhood I never had fewer than 20 cats, 3 dogs, 2 horses and 25 cows as pets. (Yes the cows were my pets) I now have a dog (Barley) and a cat (Rilla) that I am obsessed with. They even have their own hashtags.
I lived on an island on Lake Michigan where I met the best friends of my life. That was back in 2002 and we all still email each other every day. (I love you Tree!) I also spent some time living in Seattle & Austin, TX where it was way too hot.
I was a server and bartender for over 10 years before I "found my calling," so I will forever tip no less than 25%, even if I receive bad service.
Now onto why I am a photographer: Not a day goes by where I am not extremely thankful that I am able to do something that I love and am meant to be doing for a living. Photography for me is like those first kiss butterflies. That moment that is captured in time is a moment you will see forever. You will look back upon it to remember what you once looked like. To show to your Grandchildren. To re-live that time of your life. To feel the way you felt when that shutter clicked. Every photo holds a story, and I want to be the one to tell it for you.
