Photographer/Owner

My story

My husband, Scott and I are originally from Cadillac, Michigan. We both graduated from WMU in the mid-90's, and moved to Grand Rapids - where I accidentally found my calling as a photographer. After adding two kiddos to our family (Charlie the girl and Jarod our son), I gave up my IT job to open a portrait studio in my home, and took a part-time position in a photolab (back when we still shot film:)  It was there that I learned Photoshop, and it opened up a whole new (digital) world for me!

Just over 13 years ago, we settled back here in Portage (at 6 months pregnant for Allie - kiddo number 4, and with Sidney age 2 added to the mix), and I started right away building a new portrait client following.  I met my best friend and now Studio Manager that first year (Lisa was an Easter Session client), and I've been blessed to see HS Senior clients turn into wedding clients, and wedding clients turn into newborn and family clients.
