I started my pursuit of a major career and life change in 2019 starting a college education for the first time and working on an AAS in photography. Over the past 3 years I have learned not only the technical skills of photography, lighting, post processing and image manipulation, but I have grown as an artist. The beginning of 2022 has marked the end of my old business of ten years and the beginning of a new dream I share with my partner in life and now business, together we have opened Northern Star Photography & Design. In this new venture we seek to serve central and north central Iowa offering general photography and graphic design services with the additions of web design and drone services coming by the end of the year. It is our hope to be a resource to our communities through the services we provide, by helping developing artists grow, and by giving back to community projects and organizations with our profits.
