My Why

Fun Facts

I'm Molly. I’m a Midwest film & digital photographer with a heart for people and capturing their stories in an authentic way.

I believe in cultivating beauty and that we were made for genuine connection. 

I’m a wife to my high school sweetheart Aaron, and new momma to our sweet Penny girl. When I’m not wearing my photographer hat, I love traveling the world, renovating our 108 year old home, and spending too much time at our favorite Mexican restaurant.

My husband and I met in film photography class in high school! Who knew more than a decade later we’d be shooting weddings together!

I got my degree in Architecture - to which I attribute my attention to detail, designer eye, perfectionism, and the ability to work long hours into the wee hours of the night.

If someone were to ask me why I chose to do photography a couple years ago I think I would have easily rattled off many reasons…I love creating, I feel gifted and confident in this field, I really enjoy connecting with people and learning their stories, and I love being able to capture the moments in time that so, so quickly pass by. And all of these still ring true but this past year weighty words like legacy and heirloom have been on my heart.

My grandma (Mimi as we all call her) has advanced Alzheimers and no longer recognizes who we are or is able to share any more of her story with us. And what a heartbreaking realization that’s been. After my last visit with her, my aunt brought out a box full of all these photos of Mimi from different phases of life and my mom, sisters and cousins all gathered ‘round and picked up and passed around these yellowing images of her life…her time in the Navy, time spent on the beaches of Hawaii, her at my age and as a young wife and mother, her beautiful garden.

Heirlooms. Legacy. 

How precious these images are to her children and grandchildren who weren’t around for all these different pieces of her life. And the stories and legacy of this astounding woman will outlast her years on this earth. I know as her granddaughter, being able to see and hold an image of Mimi in her wedding dress long after she’s able to tell me about how nervous she was that day is nothing less than a gift. And I’m so grateful for the people behind the lenses at those times in her life building Heirlooms for my family to cherish today.

So, I am grateful for this position behind a lens and the opportunity and privilege it gives me to create beauty and share legacies.
