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

Makyyiah . toddler time . Tecumseh, MI



Sometimes photographing little beans, especially little beans who have just learned how to walk, can be tough, you barely get them to notice you and when you do it ends up being tag or chase.  Makyyiah was a total dreamboat, she laughed and played and every once in a while would stop and let me get a photograph of her big beautiful eyes.  I photographed these for her Great Grandma’s birthday  it was a real pleasure!  She’s too cute not to share some of her expressions!!!  Happy Birthday Donella!

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 :)
