With the dawn of a new decade, it’s been hard not to feel nostalgic — especially given the wild ride of 10+ years as a photographer + entrepreneur!
2008: Fell in love with photography via the college darkroom. Captured my first paid client session.
2010: Photographed my very first wedding.
2013: Went full-time with my photography business. Got married to my summer camp crush! Narrowed my focus to weddings, couples, and boudoir.
2014: Hosted my first Boudoir Mini Sessions in a hotel suite overlooking Lake Superior!
2016: Added an incredible new 2nd Shooter to my team: Chelsea Dobs. Began mentoring creatives & photographers. Opened a boudoir studio in Downtown Duluth.
2017: Launched my curated gifting company, White Spruce Market!
2018: Promoted Chelsea from 2nd Shooter to Associate Photographer! Scaled back significantly on my own wedding bookings to make room for other projects.
2019: Started Cedar Bound, a joint venture with my husband, which has evolved into a glamping/tiny house manufacturing company! Proudly watched Chelsea rock her second full season of weddings for BAP. Felt a stronger tug to teach, coach, and mentor.
2020: This beautiful blank page is ready to be filled!
After four years of having Chelsea on Team BAP, first as a 2nd Shooter, and then as Associate Photographer, I am thrilled to share that Chelsea is starting her own photography business, Chelsea Dobs Photography!
This is a natural parting that we’ve both been working toward. As my brands have grown, I’ve always known this chapter would end one day, and when the time was right, that Chelsea had dreams of starting her own photography business. So rest assured, we’re both feeling excited (& bittersweet) about this new chapter.
(To celebrate the big launch, she’s also giving away a fun gift box,

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for being a part of this journey: Whether you’ve been a BAP client, or a part of our support team, or a cheerleader jumping up + down with the biggest, brightest foam finger, we’re so grateful for you. Cheers to the next adventure!
