Welcome to JodieB Photography by Jodie Baxendale!

Jodie Baxendale is a published photographer established in 2010; based in western South Dakota. Her inspiration comes from the love & grace of Jesus Christ, and an upbringing with deep roots in Wyoming.  Vintage and romantic concepts are revealed throughout her unique style. Her natural eye and artistic approach has quickly grabbed the attention of many fans from all around the world.  Jodie is known for her Portraiture, Western Fine Art, Rustic Fine Art, and the ability to express emotion in each of her images.

"I love Jesus, family, John Wayne, a good hamburger, blooming lilacs, watching/hearing my kids laugh, washing my car, chocolate, old fashioned manners, laughing out loud, and coffee. *Fact: I have bitten my nails since I was little.*  Did you know?...in 2007 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease Grave's Disease and also Thyroid Eye Disease.  I lived in darkness and so much pain.  In 2008 my eyes were restored and my disease put into remission by the touch of Jesus Christ.  And soon after, through the generous love, grace and gifts of God, I began this journey and am self taught in photography, equipment, editing, posing, lighting, marketing and business...with each client I learn and grow! ;) 
I have been a Nurse for over 19 years, until 2015 when I became a full time Photographer, (I continue to do part-time nursing).  I am a Wife, and Mother of three children, & a Grandma to one grandson! :)  I love hard and loyal; and just the same, confess that I can also hold a grudge if spurred to that direction. I see beauty in most things; and hope to find it in areas that most overlook. TIME is an unending beast and it charges without fail.  Captures of moments is what keeps me excited about photographing." xo JodieB xo
