Helping couples, seniors and business owners capture the images of their dreams.

I photograph all over the midwest but my roots are planted just three minutes from my childhood home where I spend my free time obsessing over frozen margaritas, sour candy and never ending home projects.

MIDWEST WEDDING AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

Hearing our couple’s love story is one of my favorite things! So one of the first things we ALWAYS ask is for them to tell us that story. For me, it tells me a lot about who they are and what they value on their wedding day. But it also helps to start building the […]

In terms of summer senior sessions, Abby hit the jackpot for her session on the Mississippi River. The weather was on the cooler side compared to the days leading up to it. There was just enough breeze to keep the bugs away. And better yet, we had a sunset for the ages! As per usual, […]

Backyard Wedding Postville Iowa | Andy + Abby

Motor Mill was always the plan for Scotlyn’s individual senior session. But last minute we decided to throw in some Downtown Elkader locations too! And man oh man was I excited! Ever since Zoe’s senior session there last year I have been dying to go back. It has all the charm that I love to […]

One of the biggest challenges I face with senior sessions is making sure every senior gets a unique experience. And that is especially true when we visit the same town four times in the same week! Thankfully, I have scouted almost every inch of Decorah so we can continue to get unique portraits for all […]

There is a moment in the Lion King where they talk about everything they light touches and that is honestly how I felt during Olivia’s senior session in Waukon. After a few quick sports pictures at the newly resurfaced track, we headed north to their home. And let me tell you they have a beautiful […]

A Subtle Woodland Themed Little Girl’s Nursery If you have been around for awhile you know how much of a transformation this room has gone through. When we moved in it was blue. I should be more specific, it was a blue that took three coats of primer and paint to cover. I used this […]

Rural Decorah Senior Session | Betsy

When I tell my seniors to meet me in Downtown Decorah, I am sure they have a few initial ideas of where we will go. And while we may stop at some of them, my favorite locations are the spots most people would skip right over! Truthfully, I like the challenge of turning a three […]

Leading up to Lexy’s glowy Decorah senior session, it rained. And that is honestly putting it lightly because it poured that morning! I was worried we would have to reschedule to let things dry out but it stopped just in time. And then by a miracle the sun popped out! It isn’t every day that […]
