I’m delighted you’ve landed on my photography page. Here is where I can give you a sneak peak into who I am as a photographer, graphic designer and owner of Behind the Face Photography.
My professional photography journey began in 2009 while I was studying graphic design at a university in the frozen tundra of Iowa. As a Florida native that was a dramatic climate change, but I’m just that adventurous. I’ve always had a love for photography and chose to take every photography class available at my college. My roommate Geron saw how I glowed behind the camera and asked me to photograph her summer wedding in Oregon. I said yes and I am very thankful she allowed me to capture her precious day.
That one “yes” set into motion a beautiful adventure of capturing dreamy weddings, happy engagements and gorgeous portraits.
My creativity is sparked by my clients and I enjoy getting to know you before the photo shoot. This allows me to tailor the experience to capture who you are and find a setting you’ll feel most natural in. It’s very important to me to provide a memorable experience worthy of being hung on the wall of your home. Everyone always finds my composure to be peaceful yet adventurous. Speaking of peace, I’d like to tell you about my family.
I received the coolest last name when I married my husband in July 2015. Our last name is Peace. In 2017 we added a sweet Peace baby to the family. He’s almost 4 now and full of life and he’s definitely a creative story teller. Almost, four years later we have another baby Peace on the way. I also have five heaven babies, which I can’t wait to meet one day! Having children has definitely shifted my focus from wedding to portraits. I love spending as many precious moments as I can with my children.
Things that I adore are: God, gold frames, coffee dates with friends, chai tea lattes, girly floral dresses, waterfalls, hiking, designing, gestural drawing, the beach, hugs from my son, snuggles, back massages, and so much more!
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about who I am and I look forward to creating a most amazing photography session with you!
