MY APPROACH
 
 
 
 
 
 

making photographs is about bearing witness, burnishing a legacy

whether it be the sweeping "big" moments, or the quiet convesations,
it is my privilege to document and reveal your beauty

I revel in turning your life's most ephemeral moments into enduring fine art

I'm an award-winning photographer since 2005

I am a metro detroit native and currently live in south lyon, mi
I've had the privilege to live and work around the world,
including in new york, paris, and chicago

I've served new york, chicago, los angeles, and detroit advertising and modeling firms,
including ikon models, ford models, and commercial clients including
neiman marcus, matilda jane, and jacq magazine

in 13 + years, I've enjoyed honing my craft with more than
1000 children, models, families, and brides

my goal for each client is to offer a high-touch experience
constructing a memorable experience
igniting your creative imagaination
through cinematic, editorial style portrait and wedding photography
and to create enduring art that you will treasure through time

I look forward to serving you

I work diligently but meticulously to create the highest-quality work you expect from me

I provide exactly 25 images per portrait session
