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. Born and raised in West Michigan, my family and I recently moved to a small town in the foothills of Southern California. We miss the Mitten state, but are loving our time in California exploring all of the natural beauty here. You will often find us hiking in the mountains or playing in the Pacific surf.
A little about my style...My style has been described as natural, timeless, and romantic. I love true to life colors, real emotions, and capturing the joy that is reflected in your relationships. 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 or lifestyle sessions. I am also trained in using lights from flashes in creative ways that can take a photo from ordinary to extraordinary.
While we are currently based in California, I am still taking wedding commissions in Michigan and will also be offering family sessions and mini sessions every summer and fall in both states.
