In 2006, I bought my first DSLR camera… I was now a Rebel! I learned how to use my new camera and really challenged myself to use it exclusively in manual mode. Three years later, I was ready to upgrade and dove into running my own photography business. Photography can be such a complicated realm that connects both art & science. This is one of the reasons why I get so excited about photography… my engineering background can engage with my creative side.
Once I established an official business in 2009, my family was headed for some drastic changes. In 2010, the Lord blessed us with a new opportunity in a new state – we were moving to Arkansas! After spending most of my life in Michigan, we loaded up and moved to Bentonville, which now feels like home to us.
I desire my business to create honest, fun, and wholesome photography that brings God glory and surpasses my clients’ expectations. To be in front of the camera makes many people uncomfortable. I want people to relax and enjoy their photography experience and then treasure the pictures for the rest of their lives. I’m not interested in flirting with clear lines of indecency that have invaded even the family photography world. I want to capture the beauty in God’s Kingdom!
My style is “conservatively eclectic, vibrantly fun, modestly modern, and honestly reflective”! OK, so it’s a little challenging to put my exact style into words. Let’s try it like this; I’m a portrait photojournalist. I can snap traditional portrait shots, but I really enjoy catching the fun smiles and expressions that are uniquely you where you’re comfortable. I specialize in baby, family, senior, and wedding photography.
