a girl in love photography


Photographing everywhere there is love and light | Detroit | Ann Arbor | Chicago & Worldwide


he is four, he calls us mom and dad (mommy and daddy only during extreme duress during tickle fights) he discusses the star wars time lines and knows the philosophical differences between jedi and sith (well basically). he insists on giving the dogs their treats and if one gets one, the other gets one, both with pats on the head and endearments, he can make his own lego cruisers and can show the other kids around noggin.com and playhouse.disney.com – so soon – I hear thirteen in his voice and sometimes the echo of someone much older..



it’s hard not to cling to him and wish he would stay a little bean but I tell myself, what we’re doing is for him, not for us, we’re raising a healthy happy child to grow into a happy healthy adult, just enjoying the brief moment as much as we can. that is enough.

enjoy your weekend everyone :) happy friday

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.


Sharing my latest work both personal and commercial. Leave a comment or say hello :)
