Love is Love

February 22, 2019

They say so many different things about love. They create poems about it, the compose songs, put it inside chocolates , on walls , on skin, movies, television, magazines. I could go on an on. As a person who leads with their heart, it has always been my compass. As a PHOTOGRAPHER , love is my lens. I look at people with love in mind and I try to pull it out of them with every single session. Because it’s my business, because I make it my business to make you show me how much you love that human next to you. I think that no matter what the ending is, love burns something into our story that no one can erase.

I got to photograph this couple in a beautiful location here in Plymouth, Michigan. They came from Ann Arbor and just spent a few minutes with me but showing me the kind of relationship they have came easily.


This is my favorite type of portrait whether it’s children, engagement or wedding photography. These moments where their real personalities come out are worth a 1000 words and worth all the feels.


The last love inspired quote I read was ‘love without fear’. I know that is hard to do but eventually someone wins our heart. Sometimes for a moment, a year, 20 years or a lifetime and when they leave (for whatever reason) our hearts will break, no doubt. I get to capture that period of time when people are loving on each other without fear and with no mercy. This, this is the reason why I photograph people. It’s infectious and it carries me.
