About

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.

The biggest
adventure we can
take is to live the
life of our dreams
Oprah Winfrey

Travel lights my soul on fire.  Nothing brings more light to my life than packing up my family and seeing the world.  I have repeatedly said, "Just give me my midori, my camera and my family and I can conquer the world.  Life seems so short to see the whole world.  I love taking my girls out to visit some place new.  The wonder in their eyes is intoxicating.  Children have a unique perspective than can alter the way you see things. 

With adventure in our hearts and wondering in our eyes, let's see this amazing creation that God gave to us.  Treasure it in our hearts and glorify Him.
