I'm Rebecca Gansen, photographer. I'm happiest when I'm wearing flip flops, yet I prefer the cold; I'd rather curl up with a good book than go to the movies; Christmas fever starts in July and doesn't let up until February; at some point in my life I've been an avid scrapbooker, card maker, jewelry maker, cupcake baker, and rock collector; I love my Cyclones, even though I married a Hawkeye; my idea of a perfect date is going to the pumpkin patch or a baseball game. I have the most supportive husband and family in the world and I would never be where I am today without them.

I graduated from Hawkeye Community College in 2008 with a degree in Professional Photography, with an emphasis on photojournalism and wedding photography. In college, I had a top three portfolio and was awarded the Top 5 student award based on my entries in the Heart of America Photography conference. I started Photography By Becca upon graduation in 2008 and opened my first studio in 2010. I chose Jewell, IA because I am a proud South Hamilton graduate and I knew the people would be very welcoming to a new business. I'm also a country girl at heart, so I needed a location that would allow me to create images in wide open spaces.
