So, I love what I do.
I get to capture the most amazing people at the most amazing times in their lives. My job is to create masterpieces of your life. It is a great task that I am always honored to be a part of. I love meeting my clients and having fun! Like, a lot of fun!
I have been professionally photographing for over 20 years, and have done almost everything in the industry. Wedding photography, studio, grads, babies, families, environment, sporting events, sports teams, house and architecture, portraiture....
you name it.
I have been lucky enough to marry my best friend, Ray. We are a perfect match as far as bad jokes and laughter go. We have 2 amazing, beautiful daughters, and both are very involved in all aspects of our life. As a family, we help with a few non-profits around Metro Detroit. Bees In the D is close to our hearts, since both me and my husband are beekeepers, as well as training our girls in this hobby. Nothing is cuter than a 6 and 10 year old petting bees, and having full length conversations with them. Almost as organically, we work with Detroit Abloom, a Jefferson Chalmers organic flower farm. Our girls are usually at all events with us, my oldest is usually working the sales table and she is a hustler! I also enjoy reading and baking. I am known to show up to parties, not with a camera, but usually with some ridiculous confection I had baked up earlier that day.
I am a goof. It’s a well known fact in my circle of friends that I love dancing, have been seen breaking into spontaneous dancing or singing or combinations of both. I like to bring this sense of silliness and spontaneity to what we create. I want to have fun while photographing your memories, but more importantly, I want YOU to have fun! I want your family, your crazy kids, your sarcastic teen, and YOU to laugh and enjoy being photographed, because let's face it, most people don't. Let’s challenge that idea, and make wonderful images to treasure in the process.
