In honor of mother’s day weekend, I thought I would blog about my personal life. I want to share more of my life with you, because I think it is important for you to get to know me. Photo Credit: Rockhill Photo Traverse City, MI 2017 I started my motherhood journey at the age of […]

To be honest, when I started my photography business in 2010 (oh my gosh, nine years!) I had no idea about marketing, advertising, networking, or anything to do with building a business. I literally bought my camera and said, “I’m a photographer!” and posted ads on Craigslist. Yup. I totally did that. Now, I am […]

If you have heard me say it once, you have heard me say it a million times lately. As business owners, we need MORE than just headshots. We need to give our brand more than just a face. After all, our brand is US, our passion, our drive, our blood sweat and tears. We need […]

I love taking wedding photos. The days are crazy busy, but so much fun! I decided to share with you some “behind the scenes” photos from 2018 weddings. I adore that my second shooters take a quick moment to capture the craziness that is me 🙂   June 2018~ Thank you Brittany Maasch for always […]

With Christmas next week (say what?!), I want to give a little something this week with my blog post. My top five pieces of advice for brides. Wedding planning can be super stressful. There are so many things to think about, however, it also a lot of fun. 5. Take time to sit and envision […]

It could be about taking photos, how to prepare for sessions, frequently asked questions, etc. Let’s kick it off this week with a photo taking tip! Most of us know the “rules” of photography. Don’t […]

It is no lie that I LOVE light. I mean, I live and breath by the lighting of a session or wedding. If there is overcast, that’s totally fine, gives us more options on locations. But give me some flare, and I am in heaven.   That’s why timing is so important for natural light […]

Portraits should be fun. Any kind of portrait session should show you for who you are. Who you are right this moment. If you are a goofy family, then you should be goofing off.   Case in point. My sister’s family.   My brother-in-law is the least serious person I know. He makes jokes about […]

I recently put out there wondering what YOU guys wanted to know. My one and only comment (thanks guys! jk!) was about family sessions. I will be honest, I have wanted to post something about family sessions and things to expect and how to plan. So, this is perfect! Family session season is just around […]

Rewind to August. I am sitting at my parent’s guest house chilling with my family on vacation. My friend, Megan, (who I met in Vegas at WPPI last winter) sends me a message asking if I am attending Showit United. Ummm, what? I had never heard of it. I told her I would do some […]
