About that Time I Picked Up The Camera
Then, My client base grew by 40% in 3 months. I booked more clients during the last week at my “career job” than I had all year. It was like someone was SLAPPING me in the face. Like it had a life-force of it's own.
Ever since then, this business has been more successful than I ever imagined possible. I’ve won several industry awards, been featured in magazines and connected with so many wonderful people.
I've learned that my photography has a place in peoples life story. I help preserve memories, remember loved ones and create a vision of who THEY are. I finally found a job where my personality fits right in, where I can be myself and share my heart with you. I’m honored and DO NOT take that for granted.
15 years ago my girlfriends bought me a camera as my wedding gift. I still can’t put it down!
Becoming a Michigan photographer has happened organically for me. Although I’ve always taken pictures of people, I never did it to make money. Then, 5 years ago I took took the plunge to raise money for breast cancer. I raised enough for our team to be one of the top 5 fundraising teams in Michigan.
What happened next would shock me. I loved doing this work SO much that I COULDN’T turn it off. But it wasn't easy.
As I was growing my career in the IT industry, something didn’t FEEL right. Photography filled that hole and in 2020, I decided to take some time to be at home with my littles because well…2020 happened.
Story telling life's undeniable moments
Everyone tells me I should pick ONE "niche" to photograph and stay in my lane. But I've never been one to color inside the lines and I think rules are made to be broken. I bring my talent to every session. From Weddings to Newborns, Families and Corporate headshots. I think the diversity makes me the kind of photographer I want to be.
