I've been the nervous bride, the acne covered high school senior, the aspiring model (though I ended up not growing any taller), and the over tired mother. Now, after all those chaotic learning moments, I'm on the other side of the lens to make sure that you have an enjoyable portrait photography experience.
Me, in a broken coconut shell...
As a child, I grew up in front of the camera (cough, cough, film camera), especially when we moved to the tropics of Fiji. I look back to see images that are bright and colorful, with a sense of joy. After moving to Michigan, the cameras began to collect dust and the few images that were captured were of cold and devastation (along with the rare and awkward family portrait when the grandparents came to town).
I attempted to make a desperate escape and returned to the tropics for my college years at University of Hawaii. There, I studied Marine Biology, Communications and Photography. My love of bright colors, joyful smiles and the warmth of the sun was reinvigorated.
I returned to Grand Blanc, MI in the middle of the recession with hope in my heart. Now, my goal is to bring the happiness and color of the tropics into Senior photography. I want to live with the Aloha Spirit and welcome families in to the photography studio for the newborn baby photographs, consultations and a simple cup of tea.
I work closely with all my clients to make sure their experience in front of the camera is a fun and rewarding one. It's not just about the photos, it's about the experience (which of course results in better photos). Behind every photo is a story. Let's make yours a beautiful one.
Pet Photography comes to Grand Blanc
After the adoption of my first very own dog, Hula, I began to adding pet photography to my services. I use my experience with animals to capture the personality and beauty of pets in a low stress environment. Again, if we're having fun, we're getting better photos. I continue to work with local rescues to help improve the quality of life for homeless pets, as well as celebrate the lives of those that are surrounded by loving families.
