Let’s create magic together

Hi! Syd here! I'm so honored you are here.

In 2016, as a high school student in Lincoln, NE, driven by ambitious dreams, a friend who knew of my passion for photography asked me to capture her senior pictures. Little did I know that borrowing a camera for that pivotal moment would set in motion a transformative journey in my life.

In 2017, I moved to Omaha, NE, to pursue a degree in public relations and advertising at the University of Nebraska-Omaha while navigating collegiate swimming at the Division I level. Every spare moment outside of the pool, classroom, or library was dedicated to refining my skill set in photography.

Those hours spent on photography had meaningful returns. Over the last eight years, I have been honored to capture the most cherished moments, from the Super Bowl to my childhood best friend’s first dance with her husband.

In life, seemingly small choices - like taking a friend's senior photos, playing catch in the backyard, or going on a first date - have the power to unfold into the greatest journeys. Each click of my camera meticulously weaves a distinct story, and I am looking forward to the continuation of this journey together, creating moments of magic along the way.

Behind

When I decided to pursue photography full-time, I was advised to pick a niche. The underlying idea was that clients would be more likely to hire me if I demonstrated excellence in a specific area of photography - the key to securing consistent work.

It was assumed that I would put all of my focus into weddings or sports since they comprised the majority of my portfolio. However, I struggled to choose one specialty because each held a special place in my heart.

So, I did the unconventional and became a crossover artist.

What I believe sets me apart is my ability to smoothly navigate between the contrasting worlds of sports, weddings, and more. Whether capturing the anticipation in a bride's eyes or the elation of a winning touchdown, each of my photographs reflects a blend of emotions and priceless moments.
