Celebrate Family Moments

By embracing a storytelling approach, I create a space for you and your loved ones to be your true selves. I encourage laughter, playfulness, and those unscripted moments that truly showcase who you are as a family. The result? Photos that are natural, heartfelt, and filled with emotion.

I understand the importance of capturing the fleeting moments that make life so precious. Whether it’s the mischievous grin on your child’s face or the tender embrace between grandparents, I’m passionate about preserving these moments in time for you to remember forever.


My Approach

I believe that the best photos come from genuine interactions and heartfelt connections. My sessions are fun, relaxed, and focus more on storytelling than posed shots. I want to capture the essence of your family and the relationships that make it so special.

Where I’m Located

As a photographer based in the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan, I love to capture the natural beauty of this amazing region. My local service area for family sessions covers anywhere within a 2-hour radius of Houghton, Michigan (not Houghton Lake) which includes breathtaking locations like Marquette and the Porcupine Mountains.



You’ll get unlimited photos that are creative, meaningful, and tell your story beautifully so you can re-live it and share it with your loved ones forever.


As an Upper Peninsula expert and resident, I’ll help you find the most amazing locations for your photos that are a perfect fit.


You’ll be able to relax, connect, and savor every moment without worrying about being “on camera” or anything else.

Michigan is my home- I grew up in the Southeast Lower Peninsula, lived in Traverse City for 8 years, and now reside in the Upper Peninsula. I’m very familiar with locations and logistics all over the Mitten State.

Besides Michigan, I’ve photographed weddings and couples as far as Costa Rica and Scotland. In the States, I’ve traveled to California, Arizona, Colorado, and many other places. I’m an avid traveler and love documenting love stories all over the world!

If you’re considering a photo session outside of my local area (the Western Upper Peninsula), I’d love to help you plan an amazing experience, give you recommendations, and be there with you to photograph it! My travel rates are all-inclusive so you don’t have to worry about mileage, permits, fees, accommodations, airfare, or anything else. Contact me today and let’s get started!
