Born and raised in Minnesota, I currently live on a small hobby farm with my husband, two kids and a gang of animals. We bought a not-so-pretty house that we’ve enjoyed working on and making our style for the last 5 years. I love to be outside and wait as patiently as I can for MN summers. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing. With that degree I found my self in the sales industry, focused mostly on retail displays & graphics, as well as new homes. My husband won my first camera at a Christmas party and I soon found myself pursuing photography as more than just a hobby. I spent the last 10 years photographing newborns, children and families. I’m now beyond excited that I get to call my passion for home design my career!
