Bio
I'm a 32 year old single mother of two beautiful children, and was born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI. I have been taking pictures since I was 14. I received my first camera as a birthday present from my parents, and from that day forward photography became a way for me to see things - and to share those things with other people! I don't limit myself to just capturing people, but love to take pictures of wildlife and nature as well. I am a "hippie" at heart, and while I am not fond of bugs, I do love the outdoors!

I tend to see things differently from other people, and think that benefits me - not only in life, but when I take pictures.

I like to take a more casual approach to shooting, and am always relaxed and easy-going when I'm working. I think that helps relax the people I am working with. Relaxed subjects are always great, and it enables me to take the kinds of pictures you'll love! I like to get to know the person I am shooting (both during and before the photography session) and help the real you shine through in the pictures I take. It isn't just capturing an image to me;it's capturing who you are.

I always aim to take the type of photos that draw you in and tell a story at a glance. I shoot digital photographs, and always provide edited images to you as a part of every package I offer, which enables you to have your photographs (not just the option to pay me more money to print them). I do ask to be allowed to use select images in my portfolio, of course, but I pride myself on that fact that once you pay me to take your pictures, they are yours. I do offer prints as a convenience for you, but a CD of edited pictures is included in every shoot that I do at no extra cost. I believe I am unique in doing this,and am happy to do so! I am of the firm mindset that if you pay for your pictures,they should be YOURS, with the ability to make prints and share them as you would like to. I am proficient in Photoshop,and personally adjust/enhance all of my pic

Description
I tend to see things differently than other people, and I think that benefits me - not only in life, but when I take pictures.

I like to take a casual approach to taking pictures. I am always relaxed while I am taking pictures, and I think that helps relax the subject I am shooting. Relaxed subjects are always great, and it enables me to take the kinds of pictures you'll love! No fake smiles for this photographer. I like to get to know the person I am shooting, and help that shine through in the photograph - it isn't just capturing some ones image to me - it's capturing who they are.

I always try to take the kind of photos that draw you in and tell you stories at a mere glance. I shoot digital photographs, and always provide edited images to you as a part of each package, which enables you to have your photographs - not just the option to pay me more money to print them.

I do offer prints, of course, but a CD of edited pictures are included in every shoot that I do. I believe I am unique in doing this, and am happy to do so! I am proficient in PhotoShop and I personally adjust and enhance all of my photos.

I feel the more you know about me as a person, the more you will see where I am coming from as a photographer. I hope that I've been able to give you a little insight into both myself and what I do.
