My inspiration for my photography is my closest friend, my Guinness. I miss her every day. I love dogs, their loving nature, and the way they live every moment, in the moment.
Portraits preserve the special moments and important stages in life; birth, graduation, engagement, marriage, and any other occasion that someone wants to preserve.
The Kent County Animal Shelter is where I first fell in love with capturing candid images of some of my most favorite people and the thousands of dogs we have worked with over the years.
It’s an honor and a privilege to work with Paws With A Cause. The impact they have on people is immeasurable. Some of my most special images come from observing them in their element.
There is beauty everywhere; whether in solitude, in tandem or in community. It reveals itself in the most unusual places.
West Michigan has so much beautiful scenery; I love Grand Rapids and its community, my new home.
Some images are so dear to me that inspiration takes hold and pairing that image with a special caption feels right.
I love capturing tender moments, when you see people at their most genuine – when they are living in the moment.
