I'm from Wilber, Nebraska (Czech Capitol of the USA woot!) and literally have moved a solid six miles from home. Ever. That’s right, I’ve moved six whole miles and that’s it. Which is great for me, it means I get to visit my parents all the time and my family is so close so that’s super important.
I’m an avid runner (4 half marathons under my shoes as well as a couple 10k's and numerous 5k’s), an active community member who volunteers with various Czech events, and a full time book reader who gets lost in many authors special words. (Team AudioBooks for the win while editing your beautiful images!) I'm obsessed with Dolly Parton and adore Lucille Ball, I guess you could say I'm an old soul stuck in a young crazy person's body with a huge personality that's big enough to shine through the darkest days. Oh and the sass, so much sass.
I have been doing photography as a full time business for over seven years with several prior years of experience. I feel so lucky to do what I love and adore meeting new clients! High School Seniors have a very special place in my heart and getting to connect with them is such a joy. I feel honored to share your special memories with you and typically like to keep my sessions simple. If you like what you see on our website, you’re going to LOVE your session even more.
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
Something that I hold very dear to my heart is using your gifts and talents that the Lord blesses you with to give back to those around you. I have taken the time to volunteer with only programs that I feel add value and am exclusively teamed up with them because they hold a special place in my heart.
I grew up on a farm, both sets of my grandparents were farmers, my dad was a farmer and I went to college to receive an Agricultural Degree focusing on crops. In high school I was an active member of the FFA and participated in tons of 4H activities. I was the typical farm kid and my first vehicle was a truck that I begged for. I’ve always embraced the farm life and everything surrounding it.
My family farm is surrounded by beautiful dirt roads so I spent a lot of time on them. From shooting sessions to going out for a run, that dirt road has given me many amazing memories. I absolutely love sharing this dirt road with all of my clients. Just like myself, I know this dirt road can give all of my clients so many beautiful memories to hang on their walls or share in photo albums with their family and friends.
