There is nothing like documenting the life and accomplishments of teenagers and young adults as they grow and mature. My love for photographing this age range comes from the fact that I am a mother to some wonderful athletic teenagers and young adults. They are my inspiration! I am also a naturalists who loves the outdoors and shooting in natural light. I do not use a studio, but instead I shoot on location. Most locations are chosen by my clients within 45 miles of my home located in Southern Michigan. My passion is in capturing your true character with my camera! I strive to individualize my photo shoots around you and your interests thru encouraging your ideas before and during a photo shoot. It is important to me that a client feels like they have ownership in the portraits and photographs that I create. I also love to photograph athletes and teams in action. Capturing the moments of competition and dedication to a sport is extremely exciting to me. I specialize in photographing and documenting sporting events and teams in a professional manner with the utmost respect for the sport. All Athlete & Team Portraits are taken on their home court or field. You will find me on the sidelines, wandering pathways and snapping candid shots during moments in your life. It is then that you will realize that you also inspire me to create photography about you!

Wonderful Job done by the Summer Softball & Baseball League Umpires


This was my first year covering a wide range of summer league games and I was amazed with not only the teams but the umpires as well. Most of them are or were Varsity Softball & Baseball Players for Athens & Union City High Schools.  I love the fact that they were given the chance to learn what it is like to be behind the plate and show their knowledge of the rules of the game but to also be a role model for the younger players.

Kudos to all of you…
