I'm a photographer, educator, and creative dream-chaser
based in Duluth, MN.
Born & based in Duluth, MN, I own three soul-driven businesses: Bailey Aro Photography, White Spruce Market, and Cedar Bound. I also teach creative entrepreneurs how to build their best lives + businesses through mentorship & digital resources.
My superpowers are...connecting words with images t0 create impact, making people feel at home in their skin, and bringing big visions to life! I'm energized by the woods + waters of northern Minnesota, but thrive adventuring around the globe.
I'm married to my summer camp crush, a bearded boy from England (yes, he even has an accent!). We endured years of long-distance, navigated the immigration process, and share an endless résumé of DIY projects + foster pups! Together we vowed to travel somewhere new each year, and after a decade, we're still just as obsessed with big adventures.
When I’m not dreaming up the next business adventure, you’ll find me romping in the woods with my two giant lap dogs or sipping really good beer on a patio somewhere.
At my core, I believe in pursuing a life full of purpose, creativity, adventure, and as many dogs as my lap can hold.
I'll talk your ear off
about hop varieties
(but only if you ask).
Fresh air, breezy pines,
Bring it on!
But especially these two:
Meet Summit & Mowgli!
The bearded British boy who stole my heart at summer camp!
See as much of the world as I can while I'm here.
Let's face it:
I'm a total homebody.
