Paige Peterson Connolly

My photos are my art. And my camera is my microphone. It’s the tool I use to communicate. To say something meaningful. It’s a daily adventure and constant privilege. I am so thankful for all those who have trusted me to show you how I see you. Full of beauty. Full of life.

Get to know me

I love the realness in people, and know life’s too short not to capture it.

My Roots

My childhood was split between making waves at our lake house and making kills on the volleyball court. As a student of photography my education began close to home but continued at the Art Institute of Los Angeles. It’s there that I also worked and photographed for Spence Studios in West Hollywood. Today, I own and operate my photography business from Des Moines, Iowa, but can often be found traveling around the country for special client projects or in the company of production crews.

I am a daughter, sister, wife, mom, friend, lover of elephants, and rescuer of dogs. At my core, I believe in the power of photography and concurrently in karma, friends, family, good wine and the ability of laughter to cure almost anything. I am fortunate to love what I do and to find happiness in the joy that it brings to others.

I want you to exist in photos, show up in memories and prove that you participated in life.
