a b o u t m e
I am a midwestern girl, based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
I am a wife to Brandon and the momma of Graham Nathaniel. I also have a black german shepherd, Kylo. My family means everything to me.
I am a First Grade teacher in Harrisburg, South Dakota.
I started Bernie Mae Studios while in college. Photography is a hobby of mine where I can practice creativity and work with amazing people. I love owning my own business and working hard to see it succeed.
Above all work and play is Jesus. He directs my path and secures my freedom.
PICTURE THE BEAUTY
I consider myself a lifestyle and documentation photographer. I enjoy capturing my clients in their element. I work to make my clients feel comfortable, no matter what type of session we are in. I enjoy documenting my clients' special moments. My photos are other peoples' memories. Each one is precious to me and to them.
Aside from the work behind the camera, and interactions with clients, I also hold a deep understanding of the technicalities it takes to edit a photo. My interest of attention to detail allow me to create a crisp image with soft color that pleases the eye. I believe the editing process shares an equal importance to all other areas of my business.
BEHIND THE NAME
The name "Bernie Mae Studios" comes from my grandparents. My Grandpa's name is Bernard. My Grandma's name is Agnes Mae. For a girl who strongly values family, I love carrying them with me in this business.
