Programs and people who assist individuals with disabilities is a topic that is very close to me.  I began showing symptoms of Fibromyalgia when I was a teenager, and received a diagnosis when I was 18.  With the assistance of Vocational Rehabilitation, I was able to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Digital Art and Design from Dakota State University in 2013.  I now work in photography. 

My business, Au Buchon Photography, is based in Sioux Falls, S.D. and I specialize in natural light portraits of families and newborns. When I'm not taking or editing photos, I enjoy playing board games with my boyfriend, Josh, or taking walks with our dog, Mya, in one of the many Sioux Falls parks.
