I enjoy capturing LIFE - laughter, tears, movement, silliness, love. But no worries, I'll do some "traditional" portraits as well. My goal is to make a memory, whether it is with a family or a couple or an individual. I'm not going to just make you sit and say cheese. We'll have fun! We'll use your ideas and mine, aaaand probably even your kids' (yes, I did once take a family portrait in front of a garbage bin on a child's suggestion). I love natural light, but I use the occasional flash when needed.
Behind the camera, I'm a wife of 15 years (to my super supportive hubby) and a mommy of two VERY handsome boys and a hilariously sweet girl. I love going to antique stores (Grand Rapids is good for that!), little trips anywhere with my family, cuddling with my kids and volunteering at my church. I love trying new food. I love music, singing and, occasionally, playing guitar. I am totally ADD (aren't most of us creative types?). I NEED coffee.. I'd rather be barefoot any day. Hmmm... oh, and I HATE washing dishes!
I'd love to meet you and find out if my style and personality is right for your family. Remember, whether its family or wedding photography, you should feel comfortable with your photographer. Don't let price make your decision! The more at ease you are, the more likely your pictures will look natural, not forced. Looking forward to meeting you!
Love & Blessings,
