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

nikki . maternity . private gardens


I have photographed Nikki and her family often it’s a real privilege and when Nikki told me she wanted me to photograph her new baby’s birth and of course before that celebrate her pregnancy with a maternity session I was thrilled.  Nikki found a private garden and we photographed at the perfect time of the day, just walking about and following the light.  I want to thank Nikki and her family for letting me share so many of their amazing moments and the owners of the property for allowing us to create these images in their space.

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.
