a girl in love photography


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

impromptu Ares photo shoot


As a mom who is a  photographer my son has had his photo taken a zillion times.  When I am feeling happy I love to photograph him, when I’m feeling creatively down and want to feel better I love to photograph him.  When my heart is bursting open with love for my Bean, I want to photograph him.. I love photography and the act of taking images and I love him so together it’s artistic bliss.  This trend after 11 years adds up to him being just about the most amazing person to photograph and also means he is less inclined to acquiesce as he get’s older and gets more and more tired of it. (esp being 11 and wanting to maybe not spend tons of time with Mom).  He kindly gave me five (maybe seven) whole minutes and a few moments without making faces last week and it was lovely.  I had to share a few of them (and a few of what I USUALLY get when I aim the camera at him down there at the bottom of the post for reference!)

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.
