“I don’t shoot what it looks like, I shoot what it feels like.”

I am a natural light lifestyle photographer. I shoot on location and not in a studio. I take honest pictures of everyday connections, emotion and childhood magic. My style is relaxed and unposed, meaning I do not use props and I do not ask you or your child to say "cheese." Instead, we will sing, dance, run and play around to capture their natural smile and playful movement.

During the session, families will have some serious cuddle and tickle time, telling silly stories so I can uniquely capture candid moments that refelct your family. I do take a few posed shots from time to time but my style is more spontaneous and fun. I like to tell a story with my images, a story that illustrates the moments between a mother and her newborn baby, parents bonding with their children or kids just being kids. I take your everyday and turn it into fine art. 

I only book four sessions a month and they are on a first come first serve basis. I recommend booking a couple months in advance. 

There is a $100 non-refundable booking fee due to reserve your session date which is included in your session fee.

There is a $25 charge for traveling 25 miles outside areacode 48105.

Frequently asked questions

Who is your client?

Anyone, as long as you trust that I will capture some beautiful images as we go with the flow. My client prefers unposed and untraditional photos and are willing to embrace in the moment.

When should I book a session?

I do not book last minute sessions. I typically book about 2 months ahead and take my time getting to know your family. Winter months are slow but I start to fill up my spring and summer availability as early as March. If you are interested in a fall session then mid to late summer is the best time contact me. My sessions are on a first come first serve basis and there is a $100 booking fee to reserve a date.

Do you offer mini sessions?

Becasue I like to get to know my clients, I only offer mini sessions after we have already had a session together. It's just to hard to relax and have a un-posed session in 30 minutes. However, I understand the desire for some posed photos so I do offer seasonal mini sessions to both first time clients and returning clients. Make sure to follow my facebook and instagram pages for updates, the spots are limited and fill up fast! I usually post mini session info about 1-2 months in advace.  

What if it rains?

As an on-location photographer, we hope for beautiful sunny days. If it happens to rain on your outdoor session date, we can reschedule for the next mutually convenient day. Michigan weather can be forgiving so I prefer to wait until the last minute to reschedule. If we have a in-home session scheduled, I do not reschedule on rainy days. 

What should we wear?

I recommend coordinating colors and accessories. Keep things classic. No gym shoes, crocks or shirts with logos across the front of them. These photos will be hanging in your home and by choosing simple/classic clothes, your images will feel timeless and you can treasure them for many years. You may also consider your home decor. If you have bold colors in your home you may want to wear bold colors in your photos, jst not neon. If your home is designed with neutral colors, you may want to wear soft earth tones. Start with mom (I love to see moms in dresses) and if she feels beauitful, then coordinated everyone elses whoredrobe around her. Dont worry, will stay in contact throughout the booking process and find the perfect outfits. BUT for examples you can visit my pretty little "what to wear" Pinterest page for tons of gorgeous ideas! 

When will I recieve my images?

Approximately two weeks after your session I will send you an email with a password protected link to view and download your private online gallery. After viewing your gallery, you will be able to share your images with family and friends and print your images as you wish. I also upload your images to the print company that I recommend. They have beautiful products that are cost effective and you can order at your convienence. 

Did I forget something? 

If you did, thats ok! We have plenty of time to talk and to get to know each other. If you have ANY questions, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
