~Welcome to what I like to call my creative home. A place on the big wide web where I can share bits and pieces of my life with you~
The Arkansas farm where I spent most of my childhood. That’s me in the dress next to my dad holding the shotgun:)
Spending Summers at my family’s farm in Northern Arkansas was where I first learned how to take handfuls of wild flowers weaving them together to make crowns for my dolls. Tossing an old quilt over a clothesline to construct a makeshift tent and then inviting my newly crowned doll for lunch made for the perfect day in my book. The time spent in the Ozark Hills along with my sweet Mama Stella Mae, helped to forge a talent for design assembly which echoes in the work I do today.
I’m a Midwest Photographer & Stylist that adores creating and capturing simple but beautiful images. Natural light is a blessing but I’m also comfortable with in studio or on location settings. Over the last decade, I have been very honored to have had my work published in several local and national publications including these-
*Blogging For Bliss
*Better Homes & Gardens
*Kansas City Home & Gardens
*Matthew Mead Holidays
*Where Women Create
*Romantic Prairie Style
*Prairie Style Weddings
I am always grateful for any opportunity that comes my way and especially love to help other kindred spirit’s bring a creative vision to life.
Along with being very fortunate to follow a career path that I love, I’m also a Wife, Mom, new Grandma to Liv and Leo, RN and am the former owner of Raised In Cotton, a shop selling antiques and home decor furnishings. I currently sell my vintage wares at the monthly Bottoms Up Antique Marketin the Historic West Bottoms of Kansas City, MO.
My husband Bob aka “Mr Practical Pants” and I live in our 1865 Missouri farmhouse that we restored in 2009. It is the perfect backdrop for my signature style which is romantically atmospheric, multilayered and flavored with the simple country style I adore.
I’m very flattered you took the time to stop by! Please contact me using the link above with any of your photography or styling needs.
