Well hello there! I am Jody, and I am more thankful than ever you are here! I am passionate about 3 things: Family, Kindness, Photography. And in that order as well.
Family. I am married to a wonderful man Daniel, who loves farming and his cows almost as much as he loves me. We love our farm and hope to keep it in our family for many years to come! Some day hopefully some little munchkins with chubby cheeks are in our future, but until then I will keep taking photos of yours! I've also got a teenaged little sister who is going to give me gray hairs before long, but I wouldn't change it for the world.
Kindness. I think the world could use more of it! I genuinely try my hardest to be a kind person to the people I know, strangers and those in need! I enjoy helping others and I have found that photography is one way I can do that! I know first hand how important photographs are. I also know photographs can’t ever replace the person in them, but getting genuine smiles, laughs and having fun with the people in those photographs IS what matters. Those are the photos I love to capture and I want to capture for you!
Photography. I picked up the camera initially when I was around 8/9 years old. It was a blue film camera and it was the sweetest thing since sliced bread! I took many terrible photos on that camera. I continued taking photos for years through 4-H and as hand held digital cameras became a thing, I was a pro at the first type of "selfie." As time would have it, I took photography classes in college and truly fell in love with portrait photography. I am still learning every day and look for ways to better myself as I to pick up my camera. Aside, from photography I do work a full time job as the Finance Clerk for an ESU.
I truly enjoy meeting people and freezing time in the form of a photograph for them. I can truly say that many of my clients are now my friends and there is nothing more I could ask for. I look forward to meeting you and your loved ones!!
