About Me

Hello! My name is Tori Wild, owner and photographer for Wild Photography in Atkins, Iowa (just 10 minutes west of Cedar Rapids on Highway 30.)

I’m a mom to four {Wild} kids, Parker- 16, Kaiden- 14, Gabby (Gabrielle)- 12, and our youngest little spitfire – Quinn, who is 5 and keeps us on our toes.  I’m married to my best friend and high-school sweetheart, Jeremy, who is my biggest supporter.

My passion has been art from the time I was a little girl.  I signed up for as many art and photography courses that were available in high school, as well as a few in college.  Of course, this was all PRE-DIGITAL age…. but I’ve always loved any avenue that gave me a creative outlet.  I took a different path with my career and started a part-time job in college which led to a 16 year corporate career managing inbound and outbound sales programs, traveling all over the U.S. managing Fortune 500 accounts.

Once I had children, my priorities changed significantly… and the days of travel and entertaining became much less enticing.  At the point my daughter turned 2, we made a huge decision and I began staying home.  My business started organically from photos I was taking of my kids.  I started as a Mom-Tog!

A few fun facts about me –

1. My major vices are Pepsi, White Chocolate Mochas with Blonde Espresso, and Chocolate covered strawberries!

2. I am CONSTANTLY doing projects in my house… whether it’s refurbishing old furniture, sewing projects for the studio, making handmade cards, or redecorating for every holiday.

3. I love home decorating — Joanna Gaines is my spirit sister…. I love farmhouse style and am a huge collector of Rae Dunn Pottery (which you will see a hint of in the studio!) 🙂

I feel like the luckiest person in the world to be allowed to work in a job that I love and to be given the gift of staying home with my crew.   Some of my best friends are people that I’ve met in this industry, and it’s truly a blessing to work with my clients.

Contact me at wildphoto4@gmail.com with any questions. I would love to talk to you about planning a session to capture these fleeting moments that pass by ALL too quickly in life.
