When I was a little girl, I wanted to be all sorts of things when I grew up; an astronaut, a trapeeze artist, a painter, a teacher... But there comes a point in every little girls life when "growing up" actually becomes a reality. One thing I had always loved doing was taking pictures of EVERYTHING, so that is what I chose.
I came to the Grand Rapids area at the age of 18, all ready to experience the big world I never got to see in my small hometown. I enrolled in Grand Valley State University's photography program, where I eventually earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in photography. Before I graduated, I bought my very first Nikon DSLR (my little trusty D50) and started doing weddings and portraits for family and friends. In the past three years, my business has grown exponentially and I LOVE IT! Being able to capture the beautiful moments between the bride and the groom on their most special day is a thrill and I couldn't be happier being a part of it.
Photography, for me, is being able to creatively capture the essence of some of the most important moments in your life, times you want to cherish and be able to hold onto forever. Whether its your Wedding, Engagement, Family photograph, Senior portraits or even something a little more modern like a Trash the Dress session or Maternity shoot, I'd love to be able to help capture your special moments!
