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

olivia graduation

Olivia told me when she booked me for my largest senior package that she had been waiting to schedule her senior pictures since she was a freshman.. I totally understood her to mean she’d been looking forward to getting her pictures that long, which was pretty cool.  But she went on, she’d seen my work hanging in a restaurant three years before and had been waiting to book me for her session since that day.  I was gobsmacked and completely touched. We spent the day shooting in Detroit at the Greenfield Village, such an amazing day and again an amazing young woman. Olivia I am so so touched and honored to have been chosen to photograph such a huge milestone in your life. You shine. Here are a few of my favorites.

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.
