The face behind the camera…
Originally from the Midwest, I grew up on my aunt and uncle’s farm just a few short miles from the great dunes and shores of Lake Michigan. It was there where my young mind’s curiosity and the never-ending spaces granted me the privilege of endless exploration. My days were filled with long walks deep into the woods, late night family pig roasts under a summer moon, and thrilling hunting stories told by old men who had lived here longer than most. My eyes were tuned to the smallest of delights, like the way light filtered through our old barn walls, or the way you could smell the coming spring on a late winter breeze. With young eyes and a open heart, I absorbed everything.
I love traveling and have been fortunate in the last few years of being able to travel all over the globe, immerse myself within different cultures, and meet the amazing people making a life there. My documentary work in Haiti and Honduras has had the biggest effect on my life.
Simply put, I love making images. I live it. I sleep it. It is what I do. It is what I know. I don’t consider myself solely a photojournalist nor do I consider myself solely a wedding photographer. I am, quite honestly, happiest, when simply documenting life as it unfolds. Whether I’m exploring small cafes in the foothills of Montana’s rural communities, or meeting people in a big city wedding celebration, I’m grateful to be a part of it.
Thank you for your interest in my photography.
