a girl in love photography


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

looking back at two thousand and fifteen


2015 was our busiest year yet!  More family sessions, more weddings and we are even booking bar/bat mitzvahs! The focus this year was on personal experiences, letting kids be themselves, seniors decide where THEY wanted to have their picture taken and what THEY wanted to wear.  We started the year off by going to a three day photographer fling in Portland and ended the year on NYE with a wedding that was a huge celebration of love and life.  The busier we get the more I work to keep the focus on the moment, not rushing.  Taking a moment after the ceremony and even if we are shooting portraits letting the bride and groom have THEIR time and I’m there, I am photographing their moments but I’m not interfering.  Photo-journalism means real life to me and real life is always going to be more beautiful and more meaningful if we give it a chance to do it’s thing and just tell the story as it happens.  This goes for family sessions as well.  I want to thank each and every one of my clients this year for letting me into your families, taking me into your circles of intimacy and trusting me to hold space and document you and your loves.  Heres to another amazing year!

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.
