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

a lovely blur

Sometimes I need to stretch my wings a bit, and every time I decide to jump out and take a bit of a risk I am always happier for it. (and so are my subjects :) ) I used to do more experimental things, I called it personal work. I want to incorporate that more into everything I do because the more I think about it the more I realize all my work is personal work, it’s all part of my soul and sharing that in a session just makes that session all that much more meaningful.

Remember to stretch and grow and when that fear hits you because you aren’t sure or you haven’t seen it before, be reminded as I am every day from my good friends and some amazing photographers, fear is the mind killer. make that leap, the world is a lovely blur, embrace it.

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 :)
