A Day In The Life

How many of you have I officially met? How many of you have only seen me online or passing by? Just incase you wanted to get to know me, I thought I’d share a few fun facts and photos of myself.

Well here it goes. I am 25 years old and have been doing photography full time since I was 18 years old. I first picked up a camera to photograph my now husbands band while they were in high school. We did some band photos up in a local cemetery (because thats the cool thing to do when you’re 17 and in a band) and alas my love for photography was born. I was using my moms Canon Rebel, an 8 megapixel camera, to photograph these images and editing them very awfully in photoshop afterwards. To put into perspective, the camera I shoot with now has 26 megapixels. Cameras have come a long way. Anyway, I started photographing friends and then after high school I decided I wanted to go to GRCC and get my associates degree in photography. I graduated with that associates degree in 2015 and well, here we are about 8 years into my career.

Fun Facts

  • I am married to that same 17 year old boy, he was the new kid in town his senior year and thats how we met. We were best friends in high school and have the most cheesy love story ever. Ya know best friends falling in love only to get married and have the most beautiful little fur family on the planet. We have two dogs, Wallace & Poncho, who you’ll see in the images below and of course my beautiful little princess siamese cat named Wilma (she’s my favorite…shhh don’t tell the others).
  • Logan (my husband) and I are Disney FREAKS. Yes we even got those cheesy matching Mickey and Minnie tattoos. You’ll most likely see it on my wrist while I’m photographing you. Heck, I may even be wearing a Disney shirt to your shoot (I’m wearing one as I type this out). We cannot wait to go back to Disney. It literally is the most magical place on earth.
  • When we first meet, I’m sure you’ll wonder why the heck my glasses are so large. I don’t really have a reason for that other than the fact that I LOVE them and love how big they are. It just fits my spunky personality!
  • Do you have a Hollywood crush? Mine is Benedict Cumberbatch and I’m a little overly obsessed with him. For one, he’s British and that makes him even more awesome. For two, he’s just a phenomenal actor and you should probably watch the BBC show Sherlock because it will change your life.
  • I spend my off nights listening to Logan’s band play. They are in the process of releasing a new album so stay tuned for that! Seeing the heart and soul he puts into his music is amazing and knowing how much he supports what I do is also amazing. One thing I’ve learned in a relationship is that you have to support one another in everything you do. He’s been my rock through the last 8 years of this venture and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Be sure to check out their band RED LEGS and you should probably go to one of their shows so we can hangout and listen to some awesome music!
  • Lastly, my favorite singer/artist (aside from Logan ;)) is Frank Sinatra. I love old jazz music, especially Frank. Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong era. If you ever enter the studio on a day we are closed, you’ll most likely hear that jazz music coming from my computer while I’m editing away.

Well thats a lot of random things for you to know about me. A lot I’m sure you really could care less about but hey, now you know!

The following photos were taken on June 18th at Mission Point Lighthouse in Traverse City. We were camping near Fife Lake over the weekend and Logan and I decided to take our pooches to the beach for the first time. They loved it! I do have a few Traverse City dates coming up towards the end of Summer! I love traveling for my photography and these few dates that I am already in Traverse you can get at a discounted cost (woohoo! I know you all love discounts, because who doesn’t?)


Well thanks for reading! If you want to know more about me don’t hesitate to ask. I’m pretty goofy but one thing I know for sure is that I love photographing moments that you never want to forget.
