I’m a full-time photographer based out of West Michigan. (I like to think I’m a West Coast photographer – and I’m technically not wrong, right?) I probably drink too much coffee, eat too much guacamole, and don’t think I could live in a world without Apple products. Okay that last bit may be an exaggeration but…I really should be sponsored. Just saying.
Travel and exploration truly rejuvenate my soul and I’m constantly humbled by the stunning beauty of God’s brilliant creation. Road trips, long flights and airports, exploring new places, getting off the beaten path and forging my own trail…I love it all. On any given day you’ll probably find me with a cup of coffee in hand, searching for new artistic expressions of beauty – finding joy in the everyday moments.
Being a photographer was never really my pursuit…and to be honest, it still isn’t. Here’s why – for me, my cameras are simply the tools I use to capture love and emotion – a conduit through which I channel the beauty and magic of the unique stories of my amazing clients. My primary focus is never photos, what I’m about is relationships. Relationships breed transparency and when relationships are built, walls break down, and THAT’S when the most authentic moments happen.
I have a huge dislike for formal poses and forced smiles because, if we’re being honest, nobody lives life posed. You are the most yourself when you’re hanging out with the people you love the most, enjoying life, and…let’s be real…probably being a bit crazy. I want to join you in those moments – the messy and spontaneous, the crazy and chaotic, and the quiet and intimate. I want to help you write your visual story in such a way that you can open your photo gallery and instantly go “yep, that’s totally US!”
Ultimately, I want to get to know YOU. To learn what makes you the happiest and where you feel most comfortable. To join you in the story you’re telling and help you create a visual representation of that story that is truly and uniquely yours.
So let’s get to know each other!
