Get To Know Me

Hi everyone, my name is Vanessa Olsen.

I’m a fourth-generation farmer who has a passion for photography and capturing memories. 

I am a mother of one son named Jackson and I am  full of energy  and have a super bubbly personality as some have told me.  

My passion for photography started at a young age my mom had a huge bookcase filled with photo albums and I would sit there and just look through them constantly, till the day I moved out.

A picture is worth a thousand words, it’s timeless you can keep going back to that picture and get that same amazing feeling from looking at a picture.

As my son is going to be 2, I keep looking back at his newborn pictures as he has grown up so much since.

I can’t-go back and relive those moments, but I sure can go back to the photos and get a feel for what it was like holding my newborn.


I can’t wait to meet you all on our photo shoots. 🙂

I am a lifestyle photographer 

I became drawn to the Lifestyle approach for photography and fell in love with it.  Becoming a photographer, I also found a piece of me that has been hiding for 30 years, my artistic  side has finally shown through my images I capture. 

I am obsessed with capturing families babies and couples. In a way that is real, romantic, and full of life  To me your not just a client you are someone who believes in my work and me, and I cherish that and you.  

I think the world has big plans for Farmer Behind The Lens and I'm  so thankful you are here.
