hello there

"Art comes to you proposing frankly to give nothing but the highest quality to moments as they pass." -unknown

This has been one of my favorite quotes for years now because it represents what I hope to capture as an artist and photographer. My name is Lana Eklund and I love capturing thoughtful, beautiful moments in life. I've been a professional photographer since 2004 and spent many years before that learning my craft. It started as a passion for photojournalism in high school and evolved into a love for fine art photography in college with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Kansas State University.

I have a wonderful husband Kevin, an effervescent son August, a sassy-but-sweet daughter Lydia and a spunky miniature pinscher named Dora. I love Jesus, traveling the world, walking barefoot in fresh green grass, laughing with my mouth wide open, listening to the birds on spring mornings, sunny day hikes, frozen yogurt smothered with gummy bears, spending time with my family, a clean house, friendship, sunsets, hugs, and surprises. I love life. I love being a photographer!
