hello there!

I'm Maddie - a 22 year old photographer and visual storyteller from DeKalb, Illinois. I recently graduated from Iowa State University where I studied Public Relations and Spanish. 

I have had a passion for photography and visual communication for as long as I can remember, and love using that passion to help people and brands tell stories visually. 


I'm experienced in travel, product, portrait, and journalistic photography, but I'm always eager to try new things and grow. As someone who has always struggled to make up my mind, I have an overwhelming amount of interests and inspirations, and my ever-changing style reflects that. Regardless of the artistic style I'm into at the time, I'm always mindful of the little details and seek to find beauty in the ordinary & overlooked.

Forever eager to explore new places, my dream is to travel this Earth, photographing its hidden gems and the people that make them special. 

My other loves include music, plants, languages and my English Bulldog, Baby. 

I would love to work with you and get to know you, thanks for stopping by. :)

follow along!
