I’m not your typical smile-at-the-camera photographer. Instead of a white wall, or simple backdrop, I want my subjects immersed in our surroundings. Spring blossoms, lush greenery in the summer, the vibrant autumn trees; these are only a few of my favorite things. I love photographing the unique man-made structures of the city, not quite as much as I love capturing the raw beauty of nature though. You’ll notice me gravitating towards flowers, trees, etc, even if buildings loom above us. I try to see everyday objects differently.
If you are seeking someone to capture your true personality, I’m the girl for your portrait session. Our photoshoot will be playful, definitely full of laughter, then over before you know it because we were having so much fun. Don’t worry about knowing what to do in front of the camera, that’s what I’m here for. I’ll put you at ease with gentle guidance and prompts. With that in mind, know that I never want to push you to do something that doesn’t feel like you. As we hang out and get to know each other my goal is to create an inviting space for you. Relax, we’ll capture your authentic self in photos you’ll treasure for years to come.
I spend May through October in Traverse City, Michigan photographing full time.
From November until April I roam the US, this keeps me busy photographing year-round.
There are never travel fees for sessions scheduled where I’m based or plan to travel through.
Let’s get creative in nature or the city, I’m always up for a new adventure.
