Thank you for visiting my website!
I'm a Grand Rapids based photographer specializing in portrait photography; including families and children, newborn and maternity photos, high school senior sessions and pet photography. I also love to shoot landscape and nature photography on the side. My passion for photography started as a child as I watched my grandfather shoot landscape and nature whenever he could. After starting a career in the horticulture industry, part of my responsibilities included catalog photography, and my involvement with photography progressed from there. In addition to photography and flowers, some of my other loves are my family (human and furry), animals, genealogy and whatever new hobby I get an itch to learn.
My goal is to provide you with beautiful images that you and your family can treasure for years to come and to provide you with a fun experience during the creation of your images! While digital photography has been a game-changer and made photography so much more accessible to everyone, I believe that it is even more amazing to have long-lasting prints made of your favorites, which is why I offer prints and other wall art through a full-service professional print lab. Some of my favorite family heirlooms are photographs and I hope for future generation's sake that they will still have lots of prints to cherish too!
Many of the the most meaningful images are created when your session is in a location that is important or significant to you. Sometimes this is a special park that your family loves, or a location where a momentous event in your life happened. Sometimes it is even in your own yard or home - this can especially be helpful if you have shy or hesitant kiddos or pets who may be more comfortable in their own surroundings! I can also provide suggestions of seasonally gorgeous locations around West Michigan, and I have a studio for shooting in during inclement weather or if you would prefer a studio session.
If you are interested in booking a session, please send me a message via my Contact Me page or give me a call at (517) 507-6433.
I look forward to working with you!
