Hi!  My name is Jamie-  thanks for visiting Engelhardt Photography.  A little about me; I am a true midwesterner- born and raised and, with the exception of a couple short years in California, have lived in the midwest my entire life.  My husband and I have been married for 8 years.  I’m crazy in love with him and we’ve had quite a journey since being married.  On that journey we’ve acquired two additional travelers, our 4 year old boy and 6 year old girl.  These two little ones are full of life- they keep me on my toes and let's be honest, drive me a little crazy most of the time.  I love them dearly, but for the love, just stop fighting for once and play nice :) When I’m not out on a shoot, you can usually find me with my family, at the local YMCA, or curled up on the couch with a good book/watching Netflix.  Photography is something that brings me great joy.  The moment I pack my bag and start driving to a shoot, I get an adrenaline rush (something like I used to get in high school before a big hockey game or tennis match.)  There is great excitement in capturing people, as they are, not as they should be.  One of my favorite things about shooting families is capturing the smiles of children.  I love trying to find something they love, and getting that genuine laugh or smile.  In our household we love to have fun, and I aim to carry that into all life, including my photography!
