Hi! I'm Beth.
As you've probably realized, I am the face behind Spirit + Soul. I got my start with those funky disposable cameras, then good old flip phones. Photos have always spoken to me. But it wasn't until I started working as a newspaper reporter that I fully grasped the power they hold, the emotion they evoke. And, well, here we are!
When I'm not taking photos, I can probably be found designing websites, hanging at CrossFit or at spending time at home with my hubby, three pups and little boy (that's a whole other adventure!)

If you're waiting for the perfect time or circumstance to make the investment in photos....you won't find it. AND THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF IT. I promise.
I challenge you to

With These Moments?
I won't lie, you have your choice of many talented photographers in this area. In some cases, I may refer you to them if I feel they could serve you better! My goal is to provide a photo experience where you feel heard and seen. I am not a stand-still-smile-and-say-cheese type of photographer. If you want a photographer who will make you physically smaller, or who will make your skin silky smooth, I'm not that person either. BUUUUT if you thrive off of and believe in authenticity, then I am your person. I want to capture the real-life moments for you:
Sound like your kind of person? Great. Let's do this thing!
