I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, pet lover, portrait photographer, and karaoke queen(ok ok, I secretly want to be Carrie Underwood!).
I was the girl who dreamed one day of being more, helping more, doing more. Iam still that girl(well minus the buck teeth and thumb sucking).
I talk about a mile a minute(sometimes faster when I get super excited) and drink way too much coffee.
I have about 200% energy all of the time.(well most of the time-I have my off days too!).
I have a love/hate relationship with chocolate(I hate that I LOVE it so much). And I could not make it through a Michigan winter without my hot coco and marshmallows.
I love a good cry; I think it helps cleanse the soul and clear the mind.
I can always find a song to match my mood, inspire me or drive me.And you can frequently see me singing very loudly in my car!
When I write, I use way too many !!! and too many :):):):):)
I am originally from " Up North" but have found my place here in Jackson, Michigan.
My Education has been very important to me and has helped me because a better photographer to serve all my clients needs. I became a certified professional photographer in 2010 and received my Master of Photography Degree from Professional Photographers of America in 2016. My bachelor's degree was from Albion College before I studied at the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California.
While getting a great education is important, I feel continuing that pursuit thru my whole career is even more. This way I stay up to date on the newest techniques and trends in the industry. I am a member of Professional Photographers of America, Professional Photographers of Michigan and am past president of Michigan Triangle Professional Photographers Association. I also enter the International Photographic Competition each year to sharpen my skills. I have been honored enough to win awards but my most exciting was 3rd place in the Grand Imaging Awards in the Commercial category in 2014.
