Hi, I'm Bailey!
I'm from a little northeastern Kansas farming town. I was raised on a purebred Hereford operation in Kansas as well as a purebred Angus operation in Nebraska. I am a third-generation Hereford breeder & a first-generation Angus breeder.
Billings, Montana (Cattle Country) is where I call home now. I focus on photography in the hours I'm not at my full-time job, capturing images at timed events like team roping, calf roping, breakaway, and barrel races. I don't just take photos in arenas, I love going to ranches and livestock shows capturing the life-style I grew up in.
My love for the beef and agriculture industries started at a young age helping do chores & care for the cattle around the farm on a daily basis. My show career started & the hours in the barn working on my heifers & steers showed me the value of a hard work ethic, with the early mornings & late nights. Winning champion titles was grand but the lessons learned after losing; the friends, mentors & connections made were far more treasured than a banner or buckle.
I still help my parents run our 100 head purebred Hereford & Angus operation, though my roles have switched to managing our marketing via traditional print & Social Media along with helping my Dad make breeding decisions.
Photography has been with me since a young age. When we started showing cattle my Mom wanted to document every show so she bought a nice Canon early in my career. My poor Mom didn't know that camera would quickly become mine and travel with us to the pasture, the fields, shows, and everywhere in between.
I love all things chocolate. My absolute favorite days are when it's raining or snowing curled up on a comfy chair with a good book. (Yes, I absolutely love to read and if I'm traveling I listen to books!)
If you've hung around this long shoot me an email or give me a shout so we can capture your vision!
