a girl in love photography


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

welcome home Gordon . Manchester, MI . lifestyle photographer



The biggest cliche in modern lifestyle photography is the photographer either spouting on and on about how amazing our job is, the joy of getting to photograph new families..the adorableness of the kids, the other biggest clichés is having so much to share and not enough time to do it… Both of these apply to me right now and I gotta say, I’m not ashamed to admit it, it’s a freaking privilege and I’m very grateful.  Cliche or not!  This is Gordon, we wanted to get some of Daddies vintage radio stuff in some of the images and Gordon was beyond sweet, he reminds me of a little sleeping Egyptian prince on this vintage stool I discovered!  Love these, and love the prints the family chose for their walls.  Congratulations mom and dad!!!

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 :)
