Thank you for stopping by!
I am a photographer based in the Metro Detroit area. I'm interested in capturing things up close and personal, focusing on the fine details that we may miss when life moves too fast. I love to capture raw, spontaneous moments that evoke or preserve an emotion. I have an affinity for tiny subjects, cool toned colors, symmetry and celestial events. I hope you enjoy what you see!
Background and experience:
My background as a professional makeup artist had me working behind the scenes for 10+ years in just about everything; theatres, events, weddings, commercials... I always enjoyed working closely with the photographers/videographers/producers so that we would cultivate the same creative vision.
I ended up moving away from my hometown, starting a family, thus retiring my brushes. Once settled, I fell into an amazing career running a photography equipment rental business. Having always appreciated and been curious about photography, I studied the cameras and lenses extensively and took them out in the field every chance I got to familiarize myself with all of the settings. In my anxiousness to learn the gear, I fell in love with the art of photography.
The mix of my background working in 3D with faces, and now my full understanding of cameras, lenses and light, has really given me a creative edge and style that I have been told is 'signature' and 'unique'.
Technicalities aside, I think that you'll find me approachable, down to earth and kind.
I look forward to hearing from you!
