My photographic life is a long and enduring love story. It started with a blue point and shoot 110 film camera I had as a kid (it took flash bulbs – which undoubtedly dates me). I felt like a magician when I saw those moments captured in print. It wasn’t until I was sixteen and took Photo I at the local community college when I would understand the chemistry and technology that went into making images. I was hooked.
I received my B.A.A. from Central Michigan University in fine art photography and art history. It was there that I gained a deeper understanding of the history of the photographic process and the contemporary trails that are being blazed.
Now, I live in Traverse City, Michigan and I provide photographic services for real estate and hospitality photography, family and senior portraits, pet portraits, and photography for weddings and events.
My most favorite moments are the ones of creative flow in the heart of making something new, personal, and lasting – because I am capturing moments and feelings – making them tangible – turning them into keepsakes and mementos to spark reminiscence.
Let’s work together to make something magical!
