"I am a 20-something Minneapolis gal, married to a man who gave me a silent "z" in my last name. I've been married to Curt for almost 3 years now, and it's been totally worth it.
I've learned so much through the ups and downs of marriage and am so thankful to have a partner that has loved me so well through it all. I studied Sociology in college, I have always had such a fascination with people and why we do things the way we do. However, I haven't exactly had a job using my major, even though I continue to read and think about people and culture.
Growing up, our family did a lot of traveling, naturally I started documenting the people and culture I was experiencing. My love for using my camera to capture moments and memories grew, and I started making a little money on the side with my hobby. I took a few classes, shadowed many people and decided that this was my dream job. I have been doing photography and styling as a full-time business now for almost 3 years, and I absolutely love it! I have met such incredible people along the way and have been exposed to some incredible artists.
I feel really privileged to be in the creative field and to create for my job."
When do you feel most free?
"For me, the answer is without a doubt when I feel the most loved. To be feel loved and accepted by someone who knows all your glories and flaws is a powerful thing. Knowing that someone loves and accepts me brings freedom from within, freedom to live, to fail, to strive, to be."
