Knowing she’d never be able to sit still long enough for a regular 9-5 career, Mo immediately jumped into photography after graduating college. As a result of a degree in journalism, her approach to photography has bloomed from a desire to tell stories. From capturing couples in love to small business with handcrafted goods— there’s something uniquely beautiful about each story.

We are Mariah, Madison, and Morgann, but you can call us Mo. Seriously, all of our nicknames are Mo. You could say our friendship was meant to be. We are business owners, adventurers, and Midwest living gals. Collectively, we have over 15 years of experience in starting, running, and growing our own creative businesses. Over the years, we have learned how to bring a brand to life by clarifying our messaging and attracting our ideal clients. Perhaps more importantly, we understand the ups and downs, the peaks and valleys, the twist and turns of running a business. Disconnecting in nature, defining our why, and connecting with other entrepreneurs who encourage our dreams have been the key ingredients in growing and sustaining our brands. Now, we want to share it with others. If you love exploring the outdoors, discovering good coffee shops, and wearing many hats (literally and figuratively) - we should be friends.

However, if you'd like to upgrade your stay, you can choose the 'own bed' option for an extra $50 to ensure you get your own bed. There are 7 of these available at first come first served, and there are a few comfy couches and big air mattresses we can use to accommodate guests with if someone feels more comfortable doing that!
