How long have you been interested in photography?

Pretty much my whole life. More so once my children were born but I have always had a passion for being in the great outdoors with my camera in hand :)

What kind of camera do you use? (DSLR, point-and-shoot, make, etc...)

I have a Canon 6D Full Frame and a Canon T2i as a back up.

How do you want to grow as a photographer this year?

I would love to learn more about long exposure, textures and creative shooting. I don't want to be like every other "photographer" out there. I want my work to stand out and be unique.

If you could pick one spot in the state of Michigan to spend a few days making photographs, where would that be?

One spot only... LOL. I would probably pick Urban Detroit or somewhere similar. While I have always LOVED sunsets, fall colors, nature & beaches, shooting urban decor or "ruin porn" is something that has always been an interest to me.

Do you enjoy hiking, kayaking and camping?

Love all three! My family and I do a lot of kayaking in the summer, as well as camping and hiking. Last year we did some hiking in the Upper UP and loved it. Seen some amazing waterfalls and nature.


I am a 31 year old wife, mother & photographer. My kids are heading into their "teen" years and I don't know what I will do once they are grown. My husband is an amazing man who has supported me in my photography journey.
