Meet Your Photographer

Nice to Meet you!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. :) I'm a true Michigander, born and raised in Metro Detroit, and calling Alpena home now. I teach Spanish, love coffee, and read as much as I possibly can. If I can read at the beach with an iced coffee, that's just about perfect.

I'm pretty down-to-earth- what you see is what you get with me. I know that time is short. For that reason, I make time for fun every day. That does mean that sometimes (okay, often times) there's no time for things like folding socks.

I love spending time outdoors- though I'm not an "outdoors girl" in the Northern Michigan hunting and winter-sport sense. I like to load up my daughters and have a picnic, go for a walk, swim at nightfall, hit the DQ, and take tons of photos as we go.

My photography is about action and connection, details and personality. I love photos that help you hear the wind and the laughter and feel the way it was, that one moment of your life. I want the portaits to not just show what you look like, but to tell the tale of who you are- really. It's all important, and it's all beautiful.

My photographs tell a story about life, about people, about you. As you are right now.

What's your story? Let's connect and tell it!
