a girl in love photography


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

updated site, new logo

well it was over a year ago I decided I needed a new logo… something that fit more of who I am as a person and an artist… and I have to say it’s been a bit of a trip.  Finally, about two months ago I was in my studio and I was railing that nothing seemed to fit and I might just forget it when one of my studio mates asked me “well what do you want”  and for the first time I realized what I wanted… “a girl with antlers”.  I’d imagined it for months, dreamt about it and I had taken a photograph not to long before but, humm I am not one who draws (oh  I wish I could) and he said “let me see what I can do”  He spent the afternoon and came up with the rough draft that became my new logo…

I love it.

The new sites look clean, the images are huge (be patient some load time is still a bit long) and wedding and portraiture are separate

The new site will be more organic, there are still images I want to feature that aren’t in there and they will be, things will be added, things will move about, it’ll be more a living site, less stagnant.  I’d love to hear what you think.

and even the blog has a new header

I’m really happy the new logo – the whimsy and the fantasy intermingled with the silhouette, the wild and the civilized, the female and the male. It expresses the energy and the passion and the control that my images and my life balances.  Hope you love it too.

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.
