I am a documentary and fine art portrait photographer based out of MN + WI + available for travel. Working with both film and digital mediums, my images have received fine art and commercial recognition both in the US and internationally: from the distinguished Gala Awards and the Berlin Foto Biennale, to licensing with Offset, to online and print curations including VSCO, Mozi Magazine, and Rock N Roll Bride. I am inspired by people and their stories, the daily and the genuine, and by the dramatic dance between light and shadow…

the innocent,
the passionate,
people and their stories.

In images and life I am drawn to simple goodness —

the joy of fresh homemade bread, the comfort of a knit cap, the quirkiness of free range chickens, the irreplaceable scent of a forrest kissed breeze, the belief of moments free from distraction, the raw power of visual composition, the honest language of light. I revel in creating images that portray that perfect moment of movement, or the way the light dapples, or the design in the framing, or the strength of a shadow…everything and nothing, coming together and apart, all at once. Something as simple as the slight frame of a little girl, the wind catching her hair, light and shadow and motion reducing the complexities of the world into a single and unidentifiable truth.
