a girl in love photography


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

Anna and Noah . Dexter, Michigan . engagement session


So the first thing we talked about was how Noah and Anna didn’t want to do anything scripted… no cheesy poses, no being anything but who they are at the time we took the photos… there were even a few “standard” engagement things that were out, which was fine with me because I rarely do anything cheesy and only to get someone laughing so the next photo will be a real moment :)  We met up just a few days into Spring at Anna’s families cabin, the lake was still solid ice and the snow was still on the ground but the sun was warm and the smiles were genuine.  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.
