  • Thank you for visiting!

    Photography has been a hobby of mine for a long time. I was always that girl who carried her camera with her for EVERY event, even if it was just an evening out with friends for dinner.

    Now that my husband & I are parents (of two very photographed children), photography is my only pre-mom hobby that stuck. I honestly LOVE taking pictures and love constantly learning and “developing” my skills.

    I fancy myself a life-style photographer. This means that it’s OK for you to not look at the camera with perfect smiles. I want you to be you – playing, interacting, laughing & smiling. My goal is to capture the realness of you. For that reason, I am willing to travel to your home or local park to take pictures of you & your kids in their element.

    I am located in Dexter, Michigan but am able to travel to take pictures of your children and family at any location of your choice.

Every year I donate a full session (with session USB with 15+ images from your session) to the silent auction at the elementary school the kids go to. This beautiful family, and their awesome dog, won it last year. Due to crazy schedules, it took a full year to get their session in but it was worth the wait. I love L’s braids and their matching shoes!! Mom & dad weren’t planning on being in the picture but I encouraged them to do it for just one (or two!) pictures.

sweet twins ~ june 2014 { ann arbor childrens photographer }

I had the pleasure of photographing these sweet twins last month at the Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor. E LOVED having her picture taken, while her brother L did not love having his picture taken. But that’s all part of the challenge and part of what makes it so fun to show mom & dad the “after” images in their gallery!


Thank you for sharing your sweet children with me Emily & Michael; they are beautiful!!
