Born a West coast gal and raised in the Midwest, I’ve always found inspiration in my surroundings. I started out sketching and painting but my true passion ignited the first time I picked up a camera. Whether it be the way a child reaches for their mother's hand, how the light catches in someone's eyes, or my daughters smile, photos allow me to illustrate the beauty in fleeting moments and memories held dear.
I’m a strong believer that the best work comes from a love for what you do. So, I left my 9-5 job to pursue my dream of being a photographer. One of the best parts of my job is getting to know my clients. My goal is to not only create fantastic images, but to also provide a fun and memorable experience. Most of my work is portraits, lifestyle, maternity, and family, but I also love working with other creatives to produce original website and social media content.
When I'm not behind my camera, you'll find me spending time with my husband and our baby girl, Stella. We recently relocated from Rochester, New York to Ann Arbor, Michigan. We love exploring our new surroundings! I'm a traveler, cat lover, coffee drinker, music enthusiast and loud laugher.
I believe there is a time and place for formally posed portraits, but the majority of my work is unposed and free-flowing. I use a series of prompts and directions to help you feel more relaxed and achieve an organic authentic image. My passion is to photograph real people, emotions, connections and moments. I promise to make you laugh during your sessions and ease any pre-shoot nerves you may have. My goal is to make your photo session an enjoyable and fun experience where you create memories to look back on for years to come.
