Jamie and Bob met 15 years ago! They do work for the same fire department, but do not work directly with each other. They became friends long before they realized how much they really meant to each other. They have been married since November of 2016. They were going to get married June of 2017, but decided to elope due to Jamie having Crohn’s disease. This allowed for him to use sick leave and take care of the twins when necessary for work. Madelyn and Grayson are twins, but look and act nothing alike! They are, however, very close! This family is not conventional (or maybe it is these days?) but it is full of love and adventure! They wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂
Jamie is a mom, wife, dog lover, career Fire Captain (yep, you read that right…for over 15 years!), Jeep lover and purple obsessed. She began shooting 7 years ago when her twins, Madelyn and Grayson were born because she wanted to capture every moment. She is the primary shooter, blogger and main contact for Northern Lights Photography.
Jamie’s favorite hobbies include skiing, hiking in the mid-west (like Teton National Park, Yellowstone and Glacier National Park), spending time with family and attending little league baseball games. Hiking and Skiing were introduced to Jamie by Bob when they were dating and now they adventure together.
Bob is a step-dad (to Madelyn and Grayson), also loves dogs, wildlife and nature photography as well as the outdoors. He recently retired as a career Battalion Chief with significant experience (over 30 years to be exact!) to pursue a dream job as a forensic fire investigator. He is Jamie’s assistant and handles the business aspect. He also is the person who will be chatting with everyone at events and making sure everything goes right! He does second shoot for Jamie when warranted, which is amazing because his eye is different than hers allowing for a wide variety in the gallery.
Bob’s hobbies include skiing, spending time with family, watching outdoor shows with Grayson, traveling to the midwest and cheering on the twins at baseball games!
While Jamie was a hard core Nikon shooter, she fell in love with Canon's new mirrorless system. With a little nudge from Bob, she made the switch to the "dark side" and never looked back! Jamie uses a Mac operating system, while Bob uses PC. The same is true for their cell phones. Jamie is team Apple and Bob is team Samsung. They have an office set up together but each have their own space :)

"So random, but we both don't like "hot" drinks. We don't drink tea, coffee, hot chocolate. We don't even own a coffee maker"
