I am photographer and an Art Director, but above all I am a mom. I studied visual communication at Kendall College of Art and Design, however I was seeing the world through my viewfinder long before I ever dreamed of pursuing a career in Art Direction or Photography. Now both passions work hand-in-hand to give me the creative vision to capture your real-life moments and specials occasions with an artistic flare. But becoming a mom has showed me just how important it is to capture all those special moments in time and made me realize that I not only want to capture my own family’s special moments, I want to capture all of yours as well. One of my favorite quotes came form a photographer my husband knows. He said “a photograph is like a receipt for a memory” and he couldn’t have said it better. Because at the end of the day there is nothing more gratifying then hearing that I captured the true personality of my subjects and recorded that special memory for you to hold on to for a lifetime. That’s what makes this the best job I’ve ever had!
I have a photojournalistic approach and I typically shoot on-location in natural light settings. I am drawn to interesting color, light, texture and creative composition. However, most of all I enjoy capturing the true essence of my subjects; pure love, happiness, joy and even the stubborn yet playful demeanors of my youngest clients. Naturally I tend to look for the little moments. The moments that you may miss or just not pay attention too because these portraits will be the ones you treasure the most.
I shoot primarily on location in both Michigan and Ohio, however I’m always up for traveling beyond those boarders to photograph your special life events. I’m currently booking weddings, families, maternity, children, high school seniors, engagement and special event sessions. Please contact me for special requests or detailed pricing.
