a girl in love photography


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

nicki, kyle and julia

I don’t think that I can ever say that winter is not just as beautiful a time of year to photograph as summer.. oh it’s true the sun sets so much earlier but even though it sets earlier it still has something really beautiful to say.

I love taking peoples portraits, really that’s the only reason I do what I do, to capture moments and people and friends and family. Sometimes it’s really easy to get caught up in all of the day to day other stuff, but when it comes down to it, I do this because I love what I create and I love to share it. That’s it. It’s not more complicated then that.

I get so busy I don’t always have time to see or play with the people I love. Sometimes they have to schedule a session with me to get a few hours of time in (and dinner afterward). Nicki you are my best friend and I love you. Thanks for believing in what I do.

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 :)
