I am photographer based in St Johns Michigan and serve all of Michigan

Just a few things about me...

~ My husband and I have been together for over than half our lives  and as corny as it sounds, he is my best friend and biggest cheerleader. We have 3 kiddos, 15, 19 & 23. 2 cats, a goofy black lab/pitt mix and probably too many chickens. If my husband and kids had it their way, we would have a few goats too!

~I can't begin my day without coffee. Typically caramel vanilla creamer added to the perfect amount of made at home coffee with either a dash of cinnamon or squirt of Hershey's syrup. You should really try it!  Yes, the caffein helps but its the cozy comforts that keep me inspired.

~ I love cooking for my family and friends! I believe food is the root of true happiness.

- I just started homesteading in my 40's, Iv skipped my mid life crises and went strait in to canning and preserving. I honestly wish I had done it sooner but its never too late to start!

~ I end my day decompressing either watching photography or cooking videos on the Youtube, listening to true crime post cast while I work on galleries or tending to the garden. 

Why I became a photographer
I have always dabbled in photography with my own 3 kiddos. I love the way I feel when I look at photos of them, of my family and other loved ones.

But the one thing we hardly EVER did were family pictures. I was always behind the camera. Never in front of the camera with my kids, or with my husband, You don't know how important something is to you until you don't have it. I love seeing families have fun with their portraits sessions and it truly fills my heart. I don't want to provide a service a lifetime of memories, a feeling to look back on, parents and children snuggling, couples focusing on one another...the list could go on really.

My favorite part of photography
I genuinely enjoy capturing the raw and pure moments for my clients and making them feel comfortable. My goal for your photos is to tell your story so prepare to have some fun and bond with your family! I want to get everyone laughing and having a good time which is the formula for perfect portrait gallery!
