NAVIGATE

WELCOME!

the blog

You know the old saying “the third time’s the charm?” Well, I don’t know where that comes from, but that is exactly what this session was. After two reschedules, one due to weather and the other due to illness, we ended up with the most perfect February day. It’s always such a treat when it’s […]

We’re back on the blog with the second session from this past weekend! Blog family, meet Jessica and Jeff! After four years together, these two are ready to tie the knot this summer. It takes a courageous couple to pull off a winter engagement session here in Michigan. The weather is always unpredictable, especially in […]

I have been looking forward to this Ann Arbor engagement session for a while now. I have so much fun traveling to and shooting in new places, and I hadn’t been to Ann Arbor in years. The University of Michigan campus has some truly beautiful architecture that made for a perfect backdrop. Plus the fact […]

A dream is a wish your heart makes… This Cinderella inspired shoot at Venue3Two was a literal fairytale brought to life. Shades of beautiful blues, pinks, and creams and the subtle use of pumpkins made the historic mansion more enchanting than ever. Every time I have the opportunity to participate in one of these shoots, […]

August 23rd marked the one year anniversary of Gabi saying “Yes!” to forever with Arthur, and they decided to celebrate the occasion with a gorgeous picnic anniversary session at the very spot he proposed. Swoon! I just love these two so much! If you’re a frequent visitor of my blog, Gabi and Arthur probably look […]

I say it all the time, but I just have the absolute best clients. This capitol building engagement session is literally what a photographer’s dreams are made of! Not only is the historic building a stunning backdrop, but it actually means something to Gabi and Arthur. This gorgeous Lansing landmark is where the two of […]

I don’t know about you, but I am personally so happy that Spring finally seems to be here to stay. You never quite know what you’re going to get with April in Michigan. Could be sunshine. Could be snow. Usually lots of rain. But here we are, not quite May yet, and the trees are […]

I decided to do something a little different on the blog today… I’m posting only black & white images from this session! I know, sounds crazy, right? But I personally adore black and white images. By eliminating color, your eyes can better focus on the subject and the emotion of an image. Don’t get me […]

If you’re anything like me, you’re happy that Michigan has seen temps well into the forties all this week. Honestly, I couldn’t be more ready for the arrival of spring. However, I am incredibly thankful we were able to squeeze this winter sweetheart session in while there was still some snow on the ground. Nothing […]

Happy 2021, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. It’s hard to believe that such a difficult and strange year has come and gone. Despite many challenges, this year still blessed me with opportunities to share in some special wedding days, and to capture some beautiful memories. I thought it would be […]

telling your story.

i BELIEVE IN LIGHT, laughter, having a great time AND
