Kids, family and lifestyle sessions!

I have a huge place in my heart for families! I offer sessions outdoors, in your family home, or at my studio located in Downtown Grand Rapids. Along with those gorgeous family portraits, I love to just let kids be kids. We will let them play, interact and give them a fun photo experience!


Branding, head shots and seniors!

There are so many styles of portraits, but my main focus is lifestyle branding, seniors and professional head shots. My goal is to help tell your story, show your passion and personality through creative imagery.

Keep an eye out for upcoming head shot mini-sessions! It's time to revamp and refresh those professional profiles!



I simply fell in love with weddings from the moment I began photographing them. Now, with 10 years experience, they are still an absolute favorite! I don't want to just photograph your wedding, I want to tell your story! Leaving you with a gorgeous set of images that allows you to relive the day and how you felt throughout it! 



Engagement and anniversary sessions!

Couples sessions don't have to just be about the beginning of your lives together, I feel it's so incredible to be able to celebrate your time already spent! So, whether it's for the recently engaged or the 10 year anniversary, I say let's get out there and capture your life and love for each other!

Have questions about your upcoming session? Here's a few common questions that come up

Q: Do you travel and how far?

A: I love to travel! Out of the city, out of the state, or out of the country. When my job is able to take me on the road, I’m all for it. 

Q: Do you have a studio?

A: I do! I have beautiful studio space in Downtown Grand Rapids. It has lots of natural light, props and furniture which makes it a flexible space for nearly any style of session. 

Q: For our photo session, do we pick the location or do you? 

A: I prefer to do the location scouting prior to my sessions. I take into account a lot of different elements pertaining to lighting and the background when selecting the spot for our photos, but I want to know what you are looking for! The more information you have on the ideas you had in mind, the better. 

Q: I’m not very good at posing in front of the camera, can you help me with that? 

A: Absolutely! First, and most importantly, I want you to feel comfortable in front of the camera. I will guide you into poses that I feel are most flattering but to get the most natural photos I want you to laugh, smile and have fun during our session! 

Q: Are digital files included? 

A: Yes! For both wedding packages and nearly any style of portrait session there are a varying number of digital files with printing rights included, but all dependent on the package you choose. 

Q: Can we bring our dog?

A: I welcome all furry family members! Make sure to bring some tasty treats along, and if you feel you’d like some extra help during our session, I work closely with a professional dog trainer to keep our puppies happy and cooperating. 

Q: Are your wedding packages all that is available, or are you able to customize? 

A: I have a number of wedding photography packages available, but with the understanding that each wedding day has it’s unique elements. So, I am happy to help customize a photography package that fits your needs. 

Q: Do you photograph boudoir sessions? 

A: I certainly do! I have photography packages customized specifically for boudoir sessions, which include hair and make up on site. Please contact me directly for more information on this style of session! Out of respect for my clients and the private nature these sessions, I generally don’t post or blog these images.
