Happy Photography Company bio picture

    I want to impact people. I want to bring happiness around me. I want it to matter. Whether it’s a wedding, family or little kiddos I’m shooting my goal is to not only leave you with a set of beautiful images but a memory of an enjoyable experience.

    My style as a photographer is a hybrid between photo-journalism, art photography and portrait photography. I got my BFA in fine art photography and I aim to be timeless and one-of-a-kind with my work. I want each image to be unique to it’s owner! I love colour and fun in photography (and let’s face it; in life general). Having your picture taken shouldn’t be a dull experience. I adapt my approach with every client because every client is unique and different AND AWESOME. Some clients flourish if you give them more space and you’re a fly on the wall. Others like more feedback and commentary while the shooting is happening. I feel like a photographer should do their best to make you feel comfortable (because most people already are aware there’s a camera in the room). I chat as much or as little to make you comfortable and sometimes even snap when you least expect it to get the candid moments.

    My heart beats for my family. My daughter, Eila is my reason to be better, try harder and love stronger. My husband is my BFF and he’s quite adorable as well.

    I also love cookies, cupcakes, thrifting (people always say I find the best stuff!) and Netflix. I also love fresh cut grass (the smell is the best ever), polka-dots and stripes and interior design. Oh yeah and of course I love my home-Finland and singing to Taylor Swift loudly in my car. And yep, I love The Bachelor and all the Real Housewives! And Jesus is pretty cool too.


At times I gotta pinch myself because who gets like a perfectly overcast, warm end of October wedding to shoot? This girl! And with a  perfectly cute couple!!!

Can’t wait to share more from Ashley and Patrick’s beautiful Red Mile wedding!

Lately I feel like I’ve been going on and on and saying every couple of every wedding I shoot is cute and the best (but they are) and all the babies and all the families are the best and I’m so lucky (they are and I AM).

Rinse and repeat and and say it again and again.

But you know, I have come to realize my job is a lot about taking pictures but now almost nine years in it’s also about relationships. And how now years and year my ‘clients’ (FRIENDS, MY FRIENDS WHO VALUE WHAT I DO) have become people I feel invested in, truly care about and LOVE.

I love the Hanna family. Just love. They’re so lovely and anytime spend with them is good time.

And Sawyer. I was there for his birth and he’s now 1. ONE.

These kids. I absolutely loathe saying that are like cliche but ‘days are long but years are short’ is so darn true. And all the older women who’s kids are all grown….yes…it does go by fast. TOO FAST.

I feel forever just honored being able to capture these family photos for you guys. THANK YOU.

I just always love to shoot families especially after I’ve shot their wedding! It’s just always so darn cool and I think I’ll forever think it’s super special!

I’m so glad that Claudia and Stephen this time invited the grandparents and little Hannah’s cousin and family to join! So much cute and so much laughter!!
