Hope Kauffman is a natural light fine art photographer and product stylist based out of Whitefish, Montana and Los Angeles, California.

Hope has been a freelance photographer for the past five years. Her dreamy photographs recognizable- bursting with flowers and confetti. She takes inspiration from mermaids, sailor tattoos, fairytales, pinups, and daggers to create whimsical paradoxes throughout her images.

Travel is her biggest passion and she has most recently visited Japan, Fiji, and Iceland. She hopes to visit Peru, Greece, and Morocco in 2018!
