About Me


Hey there!

My name is Lakota Markham. I'm a lover of milk chocolate, good popcorn, chocolate pie, and spending quality time with my family. I love cooking from scratch, so homemade meals are a big thing for me. Often you will see food on my Instagram along with a lot of my work. I could talk about my family, photography, gardening, and animals all day long. I am a Harry Potter nerd. Family is big in my life, considering I have two kiddos of my own and our fur babies. I always try to take things with a grain of salt and keep my spirits easy going. I have an over caring personality and If you were to ask my boyfriend, I'd spend my life in a pet store holding all the animals all day long, only to make sure that they got the proper care that they needed and attention that I think they need and deserve while they wait for their forever homes. One thing that is always on my mind is the future, so I try to be as careful as I can for the world that my kids are growing up in and ways to help enhance their future by being more eco friendly. I also think about what I want to look back on, and that's remembering how much love I have for my children and all the raw emotions that can be captured. When I was growing up, I spent most of my life living between Big Rapids, Michigan, and Mount Pleasant, Michigan. I recently moved to the Battle Creek area to live in the same location as my children's father, and we have yet to adventure elsewhere.


When it comes to my love for photography, that's a bit harder to explain; I know that I have always loved taking pictures! When I was under 7 years of age, I remember always taking my dad's little camera and taking selfies of myself with it. Since then, I have captured as many raw emotions and memories as I can! Photography has not always been my main hobby in life, although it is a big one; some other things that draw my attention are gardening, learning how to grow my own food, and feeding our animals. When I have some downtime, I often find myself crafting by either woodburning, crocheting, making cold process soap, or even learning and reading books. All of these things are so important to me. I saw how passionate I was about photography; So, near the end of 2019, I got into making it my career; that way, I can document so many things, not only for myself but for you as well, and since then, I have made it a goal to produce the best images that I can! I have to say I'm beyond lucky and truly honored to be a part of so many significant memories and to be able to freeze them in time...
