Like everyone, I wear many hats. I'm wife to my wonderful husband, Jon, and mother to two energetic and sweet boys, Luke and Evan. While most of my immediate family has left the Midwest, I stuck around in Grand Rapids and have loved seeing all the positive growth happening here - in the winter you will find me curled up under fleecy blankets drinking herbal tea, good book in hand, and in the summer you will often find us somewhere along West Michigan's gold coast. It is not too uncommon for us to seek out a beach somewhere else in the world when winter becomes too much for us as well.
A little about my style...My style has been described as natural, timeless, and relaxed. I love bright colors and real emotions. My calm approach to a wedding day is all about staying flexible, having fun, and protecting all the little moments that make your day THE day of your life. I am there to serve you, sometimes as a fly on the wall capturing the unscripted moments, sometimes directing large families and bridal parties, and sometimes getting lipstick stains out of a wedding gown!
I love the beauty of natural light and make use of what creation offers whenever I can, both for weddings and portrait sessions. I am also trained in using lights from flashes in creative ways that can take a photo from ordinary to extraordinary.
