Photography is more than just pushing a button and capturing an image. Photography is the key to seeing in to a persons soul, to capture who they are and to remember who they once were.
I am a Professional photographer based in Charlotte Michigan. I am a member of the PPA, Learn Shoot Inspire ,Shoots for a Cure and The Magic Hour Foundation. I am a newborn, child and family photographer. My first love is on location and natural light sessions but I do have a small studio for newborn and child sessions. My photography style is in no way boring. I LOVE creative, fun and whimsical sessions. My editing style is the same. My photos are bright, magical and professional. I only use professional & high quality equipment & software to create your images. When I am not working with my fabulous clients, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters.

“Artists are some of the most driven and courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day to day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, artists face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get ‘real’ jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again. Every day they have to ignore the
possibility that the vision to which they have dedicated their lives is a pipedream. With every passing year, many of them watch as other people their age; achieve the predictable milestones of normal life – the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. But they stay true to their dream, in spite of the sacrifices. Why? Because artists are willing to give their entire lives to a moment – to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul. Artists are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes”. -David Acker”
