I hope that as you look around my website that you get a good feel for who I am. I absolutely love what I do. Photography is something that lives and breathes inside me. I feel I was given this talent to glorify God though it. The clients that have become very close friends would never have happened if it wasn’t for that. If I am able to bring you something that speaks to your heart and tugs at those memories, then I have done my job well. I want to capture the essence of who you are and the relationships that surround you. I am always open to speak to before your session. So please, take a look around and then drop me an email.
My grandfather embedded a deep love for photography in me, even when I was very small. I remember the dark room equipment kept safely in the basement of his house. I remember the slide shows at Thanksgiving after the Detroit game. And I remember the ancient camera equipment scattered on the shelves. When I was in high school, the yearbook class pulled at me. My first day in the class I felt like I had finally entered into my calling. From there, I was flung into art shows, photography classes, Michigan State University Workshops, competitions and living in the darkroom. My first camera was a 35mm film Canon and I swore that I would never switch to digital because it was “just so inferior.” When planning my wedding, a year after graduation, I started researching wedding photographers. I saw some absolutely gorgeous work, but because it was digital I refused to hire them. Fast forward six years when I started my business as an amateur, and I was shooting digitally with a Nikon. Over the years, I have upgraded my equipment, lenses and knowledge base. I’ve taken classes and graduated from college. I have four beautiful daughters and still married to the man I was engaged to at nineteen years old. Every year, I try to improve my business skills, people skills and shooting skills. I pray that I am not the same person/photographer next year that I was this year. You are my livelihood in my business. Making sure that I bring you constantly better images every time I work with you is exactly what I want. I want good relationships with my clients because that is what life is made up of, people. And the love that I can share with you.
