Abby jo..

I’m a small town lady who is continually blown away by the vast creativity and beauty in God’s creation. Getting a chance to capture His beauty has always been my hearts desire. When I was a little girl I thought I was going to grow up and be a professional gift wrapper {because I thought those existed and it sounded like fun.. hey i was only like 7 ok!?} but instead I wound up working in corporate America for several years. Keeping up with that daily grind did little to stimulate my creative side so after spending much time in prayer and talking with my husband, friends, and family I had an overwhelming peace to transition into a full time photography career. This adventure has been tough but so rewarding and everything I had hoped for and so much more. I would have given up on my dream a long time ago had it not been for my friends and family cheering me on every step of the way.

My Husband Cody and I grew up in Central Illinois and went to high school together. We even went on summer vacations together when we were kids. Little did we know our childhood friendship would turn into a loving marriage.


We were married on a very cold rainy May day in 2013 and we both continue to stay loving committed to one another just as we decided to do back on our perfect day. Our roots have been settled in little old Eureka with our baby girl who is quickly growing and wrapping both of her parents around her cute little fingers. Our little Eva Jo loves to sing, dance, and make big messes which makes for a busy momma. When our little family has free time you'll probably find us working on house projects or boating with our families down in Branson Missouri. My husband is so encouraging and supportive of my creative eye and does as much as he can to help me succeed in my craft.. I just gotta say how thankful I am for him!

Now a days I get to meet new brides, families, and seniors who are truly out of this world! I am so thankful to have an opportunity in capturing their personalities in a memorable way. As a photographer I specialize in Weddings, Couples, High school Seniors, and Families. So if your planning your big day or graduating high school or needing new family portraits please contact me I'd love to get to know you and create some photographs you will love for years to come.
