I love creating lifelong friendships, traveling to places I’ve never been and spending time with my husband and two pups Millie and Jolene!

My sweet husband Dakota introduced me to photography when we started dating and in 2016 he bought me my own camera. Since then I have been taking photos of anything and everything! It wasn’t until 2018 until I really started to make it into my dream job. Never in a million years would I have thought about being a photographer, but I am so glad Dakota showed me something new. Something that has allowed me to meet so many amazing people, help them feel beautiful in their own skin, travel the world and create the sweetest moments.
