a girl in love photography


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

Natalie and Chris . Home and Sandhill Crane Winery . Engagement Session

So I was/am a late bloomer, I spent my first 30 years trying to find myself, I just wanted to be good at something that I could use to make other people happy.  Something I could do to show people how special they were, how beautiful, show them how they looked through my eyes.  So I’m a photographer now, and I love it, but even better when people I love ask me to photograph them and I get to share how wonderful they are with the rest of the world, well selfishly, it makes my heart sing.  (a cliche but true).  I’ve known Natalie for 4 years or so, and we see each other in our sweatiest most tired moments, she’s a cross fitter like me.  She’s beautiful lifting weight, or doing sit-ups or running, especially running which she is amazing at.  But to get to see her, with her amazingly wonderful fiance Chris, smiling in a beautiful dress with love shining in her eyes.  Well, it’s what I do this for.  Thank you Natalie and Chris and fur babies!! I am so happy to know you and so excited for your big day.

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.
