about me

Proverbs 3: 5-6

trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

I am a lifestyle photographer who specializes in families, seniors, weddings, and maternity, along with engagements, newborns, and life milestones. Storytelling and documenting connections with genuine emotions is so important for me as a photographer and creator. I strive to capture traditional portraits with a fun twist of the candid, in-between moments to best showcase my clients true personalities, my love for laughter, while soaking in every small moment in life. If you swoon natural light, candid life stories, a comfortable setting with plenty of fun— you’re going to feel right at home in front of my camera! My creativity and designs thrive off individuality, character and class, while still representing you as my client - showcasing every goal, aspiration, and mission you have in mind.
I graduated Bismarck State College in 2017 with an Associates Degree in Graphic Design and Communications with an emphasis in Photography. I married my hunk of a husband and assistant, Zackary in 2018 and also got our oversized bear dog Keelo,. We now have grown our little family with our sweet oldest son Eddison and recently added our newest daughter addition, Hattie.
I am a hopeless romantic with a big heart for living life to the fullest, creating genuine friendships and thrive off of love that truly prospers.
When I’m not pausing life through my lens, you can find me cleaning up behind my husband and dog, cuddling with my sweet little babes, or enjoying a cup of creamer with a hint of strong coffee! I’m always at a constant battle between wanting to adventure the world or stay home, snuggled up, soaking in my favorite little family with computer and camera always near by. 
As a passionate designer and photographer, along with a gal who embraces all life’s blessings, I put my big heart and fervent soul into my photography family and all unique design experiences. I am faithfully authentic when it comes to my business but in the end, it’s not about how amazing photos look or how many pieces I have designed - it’s about spreading the grace, love, and word of God in what He has done for us and through my work - no matter who the work is for.
I talk fast, laugh a lot and try to enjoy life as slowly as possible. I can not wait to tell your season of life story through my lens and am so excited to meet you!

The Grounded Haven Co. is taking a big leap of faith for a small town, big ambition gal, who knows that God always provides for us when we turn to Him in all endeavors. Expressing my faith through my actions, words, and work yet still fulfilling every person’s need and desires while spreading the steadfast love of God, will always be my true passion. My creative objective is to always meet the branding, design, and photographic needs of my clients. For those looking to build, launch, and improve their business visions and aspirations; or those looking to capture everlasting moments in time, that some how seem to slip away just a little too fast.
