a girl in love photography


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

Alena and Jacob. Rochester Hills, Mi. Holiday Session

I love Laura’s two beans. Jake is a sparkly-eyed, best little brother, who has no trouble giving me a wink or a pout and then ignoring me for his icecream. Alena is a sweetheart, joyfully curious but not as comfortable with me staring at her from behind a camera. She would much rather turn to hug her brother then sit still for more than a two count. The way to capture these two was with a trip to the diner and then a walk, playing through the front window and following the light to the bright orange and yellow autumn leaves. Thank you Red Knaps for the yummy milkshakes and letting us hang out for a bit and take photos!

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.
