With my whimsical, carefree vibe, you can bet it's the real deal! I thrive on life's little joys, especially when shared with my favorite people: my amazing husband, Casey, and our whirlwind of delight, our daughter Kailey. She's growing faster than I can keep up with!

Exploring different cultures and places fuels my passion for adventure—Vancouver, B.C. holds a special place in my heart. And my love affair with food? It's more than flavors; it's a worldwide connection, a language we all speak.

Animals are a huge part of my life, bringing boundless joy with their adorable antics.

When not behind the camera, I channel my creative energy into cooking, crafting, and painting—a burst of lively expression that adds color and joy to my world.

Sprinkling joy and life adventures into my sessions? That's what I love! Let's capture some memories together—fun and laughter guaranteed!

family

My world revolves around family—the source of my laughter, my strength, and my most cherished memories. Whether it's gathering around the dinner table for a home-cooked meal or embarking on impromptu adventures together, every moment spent with my loved ones is a treasure I hold close to my heart.

1

live music

Live music is my happy place—the pulse of the crowd, the beat of the drums, the thrill of the guitar solo—it's an experience that lights up my soul like nothing else. Whether I'm front row at a concert or swaying in a crowded club, there's an undeniable magic in the air that brings people together and makes memories that last a lifetime.

outdoor adventure

There's nothing quite like the rush of adrenaline that comes from exploring the great outdoors. Whether I'm hiking through rugged mountain trails or boating on the many lakes in MN, each adventure fuels my sense of wonder and leaves me craving more. And the best part? Sharing these moments with loved ones, creating memories that we'll cherish for years to come.

Soul food

Food isn't just about what's on the plate—it's about the stories behind the recipes, the laughter shared around the table, and the warmth of a home-cooked meal. Whether it's my grandma's secret recipe for fried chicken or my mom's famous peach cobbler, every bite is a taste of nostalgia and a reminder of the love that binds us together.

Latte dates

There's something special about the simple act of sharing a cup of latte with someone you care about. Whether it's catching up with an old friend or getting to know a new one, there's a warmth and comfort that comes from the ritual of sitting down together and enjoying each other's company. In a world that's always moving at a mile a minute, these coffee dates remind me to slow down, savor the moment, and appreciate the people who make life worth living.

5

Traveling

Traveling isn't just a hobby for me—it's a lifelong love affair with exploration and discovery. From navigating bustling city streets to getting lost in the tranquility of nature's embrace, each journey holds the promise of new experiences and unforgettable encounters. Whether I'm sampling street food in a bustling market or marveling at ancient ruins, every adventure leaves its mark on my soul.
