A little bit about me

I'm so glad your here

 I am a lifestyle photographer - based in Michigan, but will travel anywhere. I thrive on intimate settings, magical places, and anything unique and true to you. 

I was born and raised in a small, rural town in Michigan's thumb, where saying you got stuck behind a tractor was a perfectly legitimate excuse for being late to anything. I currently reside in Metro Detroit with my husband, three WILD children, and our pets - three dogs, a cat named Kiwi, and one very spoiled betta fish. I love Michigan, but my heart longs for slower, southern living, and a magical, old farmhouse. 

Although we live in the city, we love hiking, gardening, camping, and exploring the outdoors, which is where I find most of my inspiration for creativity. It’s also where I feel the most grounded.

I love, love. Seriously. I feel so lucky to be able to do this day in and day out.

My photography journey started as a way to document my own family because I so longed for a way to slow down time, and to really capture our life, the life of my children, in their natural state - Feral, wild, and full of wonder. I wanted to romanticize life, and show the divine beauty in those mundane moments.

And I want to capture you in the same, authentic way.

I am committed to learning about you, and telling your unique story - because that's what it is. YOUR story. Every family, couple, or person I work with is unique. Their personalities, their stories, their love. No two are the same, and I pride myself on capturing you in the most real way possible.

If you’re looking for someone to show up and take traditional, posed photos, thats not me. But, if you’re looking for someone who wants to know you - wants to know your unique story - and wants to capture the real, raw moments, I'm ready and I CAN'T WAIT to meet you.
