Hello! I’m Jamie – a storytelling photographer from the Twin Cities, in Minnesota. I’ve been shooting since forever and launched my business in 2015. I currently shoot with a Nikon D810 and a Nikon D90. My lens lineup includes a Tamron 24-70mm 2.8 (which almost never comes off my camera), a Nikkor 50mm 1.8, a Tamron 60mm 2.0 macro (which I grab and play with when I’m feeling in a rut) and a
Nikkor 70-300 4.5. I carry my gear in one of two Shutterbags.

3. My favorite thing to grill is a big ol’ ribeye steak to share with my hubby.
4. I’m a dog person.

6. My first camera was a Kodak 110.
7. I love a good pun.
8. My lucky number is 8.

As a photographer, I instinctively look for the light. I think this influences every action in untold ways and is a survival instinct for me. This takes on new meaning for me lately as I reflect on all the tragedies unfolding around us. In the face of evil, despair and fear – we must continue to look for the light. In doing so, we let our love light shine on.
