Description About Myself + My Photography:

I studied photography + fine arts at Watkins Art Institute in Nashville TN., and spent 13 years as a photographer and musician in Chicago IL. My passion for photography and nature, lead me back to my my hometown of Jackson MI, where my family and I happily reside.

I subscribe to a style of portrait photography, sometimes referred to as “California Style”, relying on nature’s light and landscape, rather than strobes and backdrops. I prefer this style because to me, there is nothing quite like the natural light and fresh air of the outdoors. Photography is a documentation of life, and all that is important to you. Families, individuals, babies, the principles are all the same. I believe we are best documented in a setting that is real. And what makes the Midwest special to me, as a photographer, is it’s everchanging seasons. I shoot outdoor portraits all year round; spring, summer, fall, and yes… winter too!


PRIOR TO THE SHOOT...

WHAT SHOULD YOU WEAR?

I personally like pastels, blues, reds, tans. I recommend avoid wearing clothing with writings/logos and too much texture – basically anything that is too distracting.
For family photos - wear something that matches your personality but is not too matchy-matchy with the rest of the family.
