The trips out east/west eventually petered out in favor of trips to the mall and cruising downtown Traverse City and my interest in photography waned.
When I got my first digital camera in 1999, it was like falling in love all over again. The ability to take endless amounts of photos, coupled with the instant gratification of being able to see your exact focus and exposure (well, as much as was possible on a 1.8" lcd screen) were like a siren song. I was hooked.
So here we are. With two young children I have learned how to speak "two-year-old". Having been married I speak "stressed out bride and groom". Having taken hundreds of thousands of photographs I speak "exposure triangle". With those specific skill sets at my disposal, there was only one sensible career path to take. I love what I do. Capturing a moment in time - of your child's favorite dress-up clothes or the intricate details on your wedding veil - is the most fulfilling part of what I do. I place utmost priority on making a photo shoot fun and stress-free.
