Lana Eklund – Owner and Photographer

“Art comes to you proposing frankly to give nothing but the highest quality to moments as they pass.” author unknown

This has been one of my favorite quotes for years now because it represents what I want to accomplish as an artist. I love capturing thoughtful, beautiful moments in life. I’ve been a professional photographer since 2004 and spent many years before that learning my craft. It started as a passion for photojournalism in high school and evolved into a love for fine art photography in college earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography.

I have a wonderful husband Kevin, an effervescent son August and two spunky miniature pinschers Hunter and Dora. I love Jesus, laughing with my mouth wide open, listening to the birds on spring mornings, sunny day hikes, frozen yogurt smothered with gummy bears, spending time with my family, a clean house, friendship, sunsets, hugs, and surprises. I love life. I love being a photographer!
