From horses to wake surfing to fly fishing, I’m all about having various activities to do when I have spare time. As a native to the Flathead Valley and having really cool parents, I have gotten the ultimate Montana experience. My mom had me riding 16 hand horses solo at three years of age, while my dad had me on a dirt bike way too young and on a snowboard going down the slopes at age five. In high school I was an all-state soccer player (striker, cause who doesn’t love to score?!) and won multiple rodeos in barrel racing on a horse named Frog. I attended the University of Montana and studied marketing for my college years. I now reside in a small town called Columbia Falls. My husband and I have two beautiful children. We love being outside, rafting, skiing, hiking off the grid to find magical places, and fly fishing on the majestic rivers that Northwest Montana has to offer. I feel lucky living 25 minutes away from Glacier National Park and photographing all of Montana's beauty. I enjoy the stunning photos I get to take but what matters to me most is how my clients feel when they leave their sessions.

My mom rode horses while pregnant with me and I have so many photographs of me from age 2-12 on my first sorrel horse named “Streak”. I have competed in barrel racing and breakaway roping but now I just ride on trails!

We completed our modern investment home in June 2020 and put a ton of work into it ourselves. There were a few hiccups along the way and a lot of weekends and after work hours dedicated to this project. It was so satisfying watching the vision turn into reality.

We have a German Shorthaired Pointer named Indy. She is extremely intelligent and naughty. She is the best pup and never fails to make us laugh. Indy loves to play in the deep snow and loves to be near her family, especially her siblings.

I have many titles but my favorite by far is "Mama" - my two little ones are my world. I have a four year old, Ax. He is a fish loving, dinosaur loving, wild little boy. My daughter, Jewel was born in September of last year and she is all things innocent and perfect.

5 things about me

check out a behind-the-scenes at one of my shoots in Glacier National Park

Nature's beauty inspires me everyday and I'm constantly getting my shoes dirty. I'm an explorer at heart and this has expanded into adventuring to find the perfect locations for my sessions. 

live for adventure

From tiny ring boxes to tiny toes, I’m all about capturing the small details during each of my sessions. The details are what make each shoot unique and that's why it's my goal is to focus on the details. 

LOVE FOR THE DETAILS

I'm on a mission to create authentic and timeless images for my clients to cherish forever.
