The first thing you must know about me is that I am a mom of 3 kids and I love them with all of my heart and soul. We also have a fur baby that adds so much joy to our lives. My kids are what inspired me to go into photography. I wanted to capture their laughter, love and curiosity for life. I also love to work out (Orange Theory Fitness is my current workout love), play tennis, and spend time with family and friends.
I have been in this business for over ten years. I started while we lived in France and I was the English speaking photographer. I photographed families from my kids’ school and Americans that traveled to Paris for vacation. The backdrops were amazing!! Now I am located in Ann Arbor and use the beautiful parks (Arboretum, Botanical Gardens, Parker Mills, Gallop Park, Law Quad, etc.) and downtown areas around the city and surrounding areas (Dexter, Saline, Ypsilanti, Northville, Novi, etc.) as my backdrops.
I specialize in natural light portraiture as well as off-camera flash, when necessary. My style is very relaxed. Before your session or event, I want to get to know you, the personalities that make up your family and the images you would like from the session. We have a lot of fun during my shoots and get the kids involved so that they are having fun too. I want to capture their smile, giggle, and curiosity that makes them who they are. If it is an event I am photographing (wedding, birthday party, anniversary, or baptism), I want to capture the love connection of the newlyweds and their connection to their guests. If it is a corporate event, I am capturing the mood of the room.
I have a Canon 1D and 5d Mark II in my bag along with professional grade lenses such as the 50mm 1.2L, 85mm 1.2L, 24-70mm 2.8L, and 135mm 1.2L. I have gone to photography workshops, been mentored by various photographers, read many photography books, as well as attended classes. Because this is my passion, I am constantly enhancing my knowledge for this art. I simply can't get enough!
