Phew. I used to have a more professional run down on this page. Who is "Molly" and what accomplishments do I have under my belt to make YOU the reader think, "she is worthy of my time and my money."  But then I got tired of that. It read like this, "Blah, blah, blah" and I wanted to fall asleep myself reading it so why would you want to read it, too? My work and heart can be found under several of the links above.

If you're still curious about me, well, here's a shortened version: I opened my photography business in high school, got a degree in photography in beautiful Colorado, I'm married to my high school sweetheart and a new mom. My husband and I have farm, too, focusing on regenerative agriculture (find us ~here~) and we named it Heritage Hollow Farms. We've won awards and have been published. My photography has also won awards and is widely published (you can buy my book ~here~). Most of my photography clients are repeats and that's pretty amazing and humbling. When you hire me for your photography, you get ME. I try my best to be authentic and honest and I think that comes out in my work. I am an artist and I am good at it (that's sometimes hard for artists to say...but it's the truth...and I'm learning to own it). I, too, have had life struggles and obstacles to overcome - that's part of living - and I bring all of that in to my work. I believe in honesty, integrity, authenticity, and beauty in the essence of the natural world. So. How about you?
