Growing up an only child, I played a lot of video games…like…a whole lot. My favorite thing to do is sing, and musical theater is a huge part of my life. I even teach and direct the theater program at my old school, and teach private voice lessons in my spare time! When I'm not doing either of those things I am working on projects around the home that Kelsey and I built together. I am a perfectionist. I don’t believe in doing things half-way. I always strive to do everything the best it can be done, but sometimes wish I could be a little less demanding of myself. My love for photography actually began out of my love for Photoshop and photo retouching. My editing style is very natural, but I also love being able to use Photoshop to create some stand out pieces and really let my creativity flow!
I am obsessed with coffee and have to have it every morning, at least! Ever since I first learned to read I have been in love with books and would read and write stories for fun as often as I could. I still kind of secretly want to be an author and write at least one great book in my lifetime. So basically, give me a good book and a cup of coffee and I’ll be happy for hours! However, most of my time is spent doing my primary job- being a mother! I always knew I wanted to be a mom, and I am so thankful to be blessed with 3 amazing children. They have made me appreciate and fall in love with photography even more. Watching them grow and experience each milestone makes me so grateful that I get to document those special, once in a lifetime moments for others. I truly feel so blessed to be able to meet tons of amazing people, immortalize priceless moments, and create beautiful art for them as a living.
Craig + Kelsey
We met over 17 years ago doing musical theater and instantly became best friends. It definitely shows since people always used to tell us that we acted like an old married couple even before we started dating! We love working together, reading the Bible together, singing together, drinking Starbucks together... just about anything! We’ve been married for over 12 years now and find that every single day brings new and exciting things that we get to experience right along with each other!
Our three most precious joys in life are our 8 year old boy, Ezra, 6 year old girl, Eden, and 3 year old little boy, Jude. We are absolutely over the moon in love with each of them, and they definitely keep our lives interesting and full of energy! Ezra’s current hobbies include coloring, singing his favorite songs, and running, and Eden loves playing pretend, making silly faces, and playing with slime. Jude loves to eat, help clean, and watch Blippi. We are so amazingly blessed to be their parents, and we pray each and every day for them to be happy, healthy, and to grow up to seek after God’s plan for their lives.
We love working together every day. They say you should never work with your spouse, but we wouldn’t have it any other way! From the very beginning we’ve shared a common vision for our style of photography and for our business in general. Working together has been amazing, getting to help each other where we struggle, and be inspired by each other’s passion. It’s not only helped us to have an amazing business, but a wonderfully blessed and stronger marriage. Our hope is to be able to provide each of our clients with beautiful pieces of art that will be a daily reminder of how blessed they are in their own lives.
